|Bible Question: Is gambling scriptural sin or just a sin created by man to make man more holy in mans eye? My wife and I were discussing Gambling today. And instinctively responded to a certain situation with it is wrong because the word says it is wrong. That answer troubled my spirit, having a fair knowledge of the word. And after some research found that the bible is quiet on this subject. With the exception of the casting of lots, in which God is in the middle of most all references to this item. Is our only response to this item in life to refrain from all appearance of evil, and is it evil, because of the doctrines of man and not God???|
Bible Answer: Consider who run the gambeling places. The odds are all in the favor of the establishment. These fancy gambeling places do not stay in bussiness by you winning their money. Everything in these places is made to intice and make you feel good, and be excited, enen though you may lose your last dime they want you to think you had fun, and come back soon.
