I knew a guy who would gamble with bibles and with the money he made he would make a trip to Henderson Nevada....

Re: Is gambling a sin?
Every type of gambling is sinful, except the nickle slot machines. Nickle slot machines are exempt from being sinful. So... knock yourself out!

LOL!! I love nickle slots. I once won about 190.00 dollars on them. Had a great time, took my husband and son out to dinner, we had a blast.

I like nickle slots too. I hit the jackpot twice on my machine one night. The jackpot was 1,000 nickles. 50 bucks.
In the end it doesn't even matter...

Re: Is gambling a sin?
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.
-1 Tim 6:10

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?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1747431


Yes to the bolded part above. If you put it before God and the people you love, then it becomes a problem.

If you just enjoy playing the lotto once in a while, and it does not cause a problem for you or anyone else, then that's not a big deal as far as I can see.

It's the heart condition.......and motivations of the heart.

Sometimes I daydream about winning the lotto and I think of all the people I could help. I'm not a money driven person myself, but it's fun to think of all the people I could help if I ever won. Nothing wrong with that.

Now if I daydreamed about all the things I could buy myself if I won the lotto because I loved money and loved material things, and self serving greed was the sole motivation, then that would be a problem.

See the difference? It's all about what's in the heart of a person.

Gambling isn't a sin, but it is stupid.
 Quoting: INK3


wrong, smart and stupid people lose everything, its smart to never gamble in first place, its an addiction, a powerful one that leads to sin, addicts chasing a high, one last hand, how many thousands or millions lost everything, they are not all stupid, thats too easy an answer for a complicated subject

I don't know OP, that's between you and God. Why not ask Him yourself? Pray about it, let the Holy Spirit lead you in the right direction.

Re: Is gambling a sin?
We're instructed in the Bible to be good stewards of God's gifts. If we're gambling away money that could be better served by helping the needy, we're sinning.
