As much as I love to play blackjack, I can't bring myself to go to the casino because I believe it is sin. [/quote] I know a guy that plays blackjack and uses his winnings to buy and give away Bibles...it's his hobby as he is retired. [/quote] wow... now that IS INTERESTING... [/quote] I usually give my winnings away too...I asked the pizza delivery guy the other day if he goes to the local casino...he said yeah, he likes to take his girlfriend when he can afford it...so I gave him some color as a tip, two reds is $50 :) [/quote]
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

But does this mean gambling is inherently wrong, or is it the greed and lust for power/winning that overcomes our mind, thus creating sin..but is gambling in itself sinful?
