GODíS WORD ON WHAT DOES GOD THINK OF GAMBLING
Before, I knew what the Bible had to say about gambling, I didn't know it was a sin,
I married a gambler, so I was doing a little bit of it to. I didn't know!
We played bingo, and went to casino's, yrs ago, never knew that God
was against it, never did I know that the Bible surely says, it is a sin....as soon
as I seen this in the Bible, I immediately refused to even play bingo for charity...
because it is still considered as gambling.... just watch this, well you can read
GAMBLING, GODíS WORD ON WHAT DOES GOD THINK OF
Luke 12:15 . . . Beware! Donít be greedy for what you donít
have. Real life is not measured by how much we own. God warns us not to be
Proverbs 10:16 . . . The earnings of the godly enhance their
lives, but evil people squander their money on sin. Gambling is foolish because the
money could have been put to good use.
Leviticus 16:8 . . . He is to cast sacred lots to determine
which goat will be sacrificed to the Lord and which one will be the scapegoat.
Numbers 34:13 . . . Moses told the Israelites, ďThis is the
territory you are to divide among yourselves by sacred lot.Ē Casting lots in the
Bible was a method of determining Godís will, not a means of making money, so it is
completely different from gambling.

Matthew 27:35 . . . After they had nailed him to the cross, the
soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice. The soldiers who crucified Jesus

WHY SHOULD WE STAY AWAY FROM GAMBLING?
Proverbs 28:22 . . . A greedy person tries to get rich quick,
but it only leads to poverty.
Proverbs 1:19 . . . Such is the fate of all who are greedy for
gain. It ends up robbing them of life. Gambling is rooted in the hope of getting rich
quick, but it often ends in poverty.
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 . . . This should be your ambition: to
live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we
commanded you before.
As a result, people who are not Christians will respect the way you
live, and you will not need to depend on others to meet your financial needs. Those
who work for their money will be financially independent, but those who gamble often
end up in financial ruin.
PROMISE FROM GOD: Ephesians 5:5
. . . You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the
Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is really an idolater who worships
the things of this world.
