Common Misconception in the Bible Teachings – Gambling is Not a Sin

For those who seek the truth, they will find the truth, for those who seek to justify their sinful actions they will also find the reason to justify their actions. The truth is spiritual discerned by men who have submitted to the Spirit of Truth, so that they can see the Truth; This is not from the human mind but from the Spirit. Everyone who loves the truth will see the truth; all those who are greedy will see the lie and believe that the lie sends them. Satan is a great deceiver and he still is.

Isaiah 6: 9
He said: “Go and tell this people:” ‘Always listen, but never understand; to be always seeing, but never perceiving. ‘

1 Corinthians 2: 13-16 (New International Version)

This is what we speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.

14The man without the Spirit does not accept the things UFA that proceed from the Spirit of God, because for him they are madness and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is not subject to anyone’s judgment:

16 “For who has known the mind of the Lord?

to instruct you? “But we have the mind of Christ.

What is the main objective of the game?

The act of gambling involves betting money to obtain a higher return. This is a zero-sum game that someone loses and someone wins with the device of producing an outcome, head-to-head, red, black, equal odds, and small greats. There is a result. But what is the goal of the game? Isn’t the sole purpose of increasing your monetary earnings in a short period of time, not by providing a service or a product, but by sheer gambling on a single roll of the dice?

I am deeply applauded that some Christians who are men of high standing and even leaders in their personal careers can say that gambling is not a sin, the occasional gambling can be fun. It is the same as saying that stealing a little and sinning a little is fun and not a sin. This shows that men of status in the community are not necessarily men of spiritual understanding. This is not synonymous at all and they should not be allowed to speak for God in their lives. Rich men are not necessarily godly men, we do not know how they obtain their wealth and we cannot say that they must be blessed by God since then; the poor spiritual man is dearer in the eyes of our Lord God. What is highly prized in the eyes of men is an abomination to our God.

The men who attained wealth are also not truly knowledgeable about spiritual things. Even pastors tend to make such mistakes with these people. They may attain status and position, but they may be sinners who attend church, professing the faith but choosing their own ways against the ways of God. My ways are not your ways, says the Lord of hosts. We must follow the teachings of Christ and the Scriptures; We must not follow the situational logical human thinking of our own imagination. After all, Jesus is the one who will not judge us by our own understanding and presumption.
