Gambling has existed as long as human kind has existed on this planet. It all depends on an individual how view gambling. There are those who gamble and use dubious means to gain while there are those who gamble in a genuine way. if you gamble using dubious means that I can call it as a sin, the other way round is okay

Yes it is a sin for some people because their religion says : Any such money is wrong that doesn't come by hard work.

Gambling is not sin it is something which is not liked because of its effect.Gambling in perspective of its impact on social life of a gambler is forbidden.It is cause of more disturbance and negativity than some positive as general.But people still are gambling like me and everyone.

i am not an expert but the reason why religions consider gambling as a sin is not what you said. it is wrong because of the negative effects it can have on people's lives like addiction, losing money, going bankrupt,...

I think gamble is a sin to every religion. But i'm sure gambler don't care about that and not even think that. Just focus to win on gambling, sin or not sin is not their problem.

I also would like to add my comments in this discussion whether gambling is sin or not.Gambling is considered sin in many societies and almost every culture around the globe.I think it is more a matter of social norm and is disliked because of its negative effects.We all know many stories around us how people ruined their lives with gambling addiction.

No gambling is not a sin , hehe . Its a addiction that makes you do sin Tongue

Addiction is coming from you so if you said addiction make you to do sin that means it is already happen when you start to gamble your money tight away. And I dont think gamble is sin or even the people because this is entertain business, so there is no called like sin or whatever it is, just some entertainment

Not sure if gambling is a sin in every religion. But yes if you see it that way then some people are following modified religion, they pick what is good from their religion and use it, and what they think is not good for them, they avoid. Funny, but truth.

I see you are an expert on every existing religion on Earth. Interesting. I can assure you - you are wrong. Even in The Bible there is NOTHING that indicate that gambling is sin of any kind.
In fact even apostles gambled when they need to chose successor of Judas Iscariot. Not to mention many times people gambled in Old Testament.
The only thing The Bible say for sure is: to not fell in love with money and lose yourself in greed.

Well, in the religion of course all gambling is a sin, I might reduce my schedule in gambling because of this and maybe I'll stop. but maybe not that fast.
Sometimes people look at gambling just a game, so in their opinion it is not a sin

Your right honestly all people they dont know that gambling is not a sin because they are not always study or reading the bible to know if gambling is a sin or not.. if we always watch the movie of the passion you can see there that jesus save people they distruct all gambling things..in the movie.. you will see there that gambling is a sin..

Well, everyone is different view. if we follow our thinking, maybe gambling is not a sin, it's just one of those games that could produce and eliminate the money we have. but as they say, in all religions, gambling is a sin.

The only thing The Bible say for sure is: to not fell in love with money and lose yourself in greed. 


To be more specific the Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:10, "For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."  The Bible doesn't say that money is evil, or that gambling is a sin, but it does say that the love of money is the root of evil.  If pursing money consumes you and becomes an idol, it is a sin.

Is gambling OK? Don't bet it! There's not an easy or instantly obvious proof text answer to that question.

gambling is a sin in some religions, but for example, in some, we have no info if it's sin or not

and personally i don't think that it is a sin, it is just a way to earn money, there are even profesional poker players, gambling can be like a job only, nothing bad from it

Well i don't know about all but it is obviously a sin in some religion, but as you said that gamblers don't care for that, because an addicted person never think if what he is doing, he just does it because he can't stop himself from the addict he had got.

It is your own choices if you want to gamble then you should let nobody tell you what you can and cannot do. But it is a fact that gambling all day is not the best thing to do in your life. I like to take safer route in life but some people just take more risks.

wow, i have never seen this topic here so far, don't know how i missed it Cheesy
it is indeed an interesting question and lots of interesting responds too.

it will all come down to each person's beliefs so that is not something that other people can tell you and everybody should check their own belief by looking into themselves.

No gambling is not a sin , hehe . Its a addiction that makes you do sin Tongue

Actually depend on your religion perpective. As I know , because of gamble, you're already did bad deed that make evil happy no matter what type of the game did you played.
As long as that gamble can be stop, your sin will be rivoke since God well known as full of mercy

No!!! Gambling is a sin only for those who does not know the techniques and tactics of gambling. Gambling is a form of art if you are betting in sports or something technical. In such cases it will be proven as easy money earner.
