Is Gambling a Sin?


Is gambling a sin?

Well the Bible doesn’t say, “Thou shalt not gamble”. But it’s certainly not the way God intended for you to use or make money.

At the root of gambling is greed, which Proverbs says robs you of life. And in order for you to win any money, someone else has to lose. That’s not how God wants Christians to live and treat His people.

Gambling encourages you to lean on the world, instead of God.

Proverbs tells us to do the opposite – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding…So even if you don’t struggle with gambling addiction, consider those that do – and like 1 Corinthians 8 tells us, avoid anything that may cause someone else to stumble.
