I agree with another poster that said the love of money is the sin.  Gambling itself may not actually be a sin but we have to be careful not to get addicted to it.

Loving money is not a sin. It is the real motivation why people work so hard for it. And with money, you can reward yourself with what you want. So that is nothing wrong with it if you earn it the right way.

Yeah, it totally depends on what we do to get those money, is it a good or bad way. Since I think gambling is not a bad way, then we couldn't say that gambling is a sin, but in case your motivation in gambling is not to become rich. Just considerate the profit money as the bonus, and I can guarantee it won't ruin your life Wink

I would say gambling isn't a sin, if you gamble for fun and not to make money like some people do. Otherwise, it would be bad and I would maybe consider it a sin. Still very hard to say though.

It can be bad if you don't watch your steps but a sin? No not for me although I know some religions consider it as a sin, but society doesn't.
People should be able to make their own decisions when it comes down to their own money.

What if someone was gambling for a greater cause, like a charity lol.

Then would you label it as a sin? the whole choice concept - is if the person is really religious in their background.

Just like in anything in life, "too much" of something is bad.

Its not a sin unless you lose yourself gambling and start loving money more than people around you. Only then will it become a sin but as far as the Bible goes God never mentioned it being a sin to gamble.

In the most cases it will be sin to gamble and that is because the chance to lose is much higher and that can be bad if you cant control yourself so that is bad.
But the chance is high that you can lose a lot of money with it but it is hard to know what will happen.

Gamble is not a sin, it is just a form of entertainment. However, anything when done in extreme will be negative. So must learn how to control yourself when in gamble.

No, of course not. If it's your money you can spend it whatever way you want. If you want to gamble you can gamble. Nobody have right to judge you. It may be illegal in your jurisdiction but that's another subject. There's no sin like gambling in my holy book.

Is gambling OK? Don't bet it! There's not an easy or instantly obvious proof text answer to that question.
It is up to you if you want to gamble so you want to gamble, the choice is up to you. Some people find it wrong to gamble but that is there opinion and do not let that be part of your decisions.

You are right about that, its your own choice if you want to do this, I consider gambling not a as a sin.
Another thing is also that it depends on how you look at it in my eyes.

believe me it is a sin. even all religions have already explained about it. it all depends on your opinion, but if you're a religious you must know this. try to find it in the book that you believe in, maybe you'll get a clue, but once again, it all depends on your beliefs, I can not force you to believe

Gambling is not a sin until everything is within the limit. When it crosses the limit few users due to addiction eventually try to sell their properties or belongings and involve in gambling. This eventually turns gambling as a sin.

if you are a believer of a Christian raise person you must know it from your heart but if you are raise across from the Cristian faith it will be depend on how you deal with gambling, if you loses everything that you have might be a great sin for your own self, you have to think about the limitation of how can you afford to lose.

Gambling is not a sin but I consider it also not as good of course, it can indeed be how you look at it.
For some people its a sin to do this but for other people its even a reliving.

I can't recall any religion which sees gambling as a good thing to do. At the same time many modern christians do a lot of things that are forbidden in the bible. So for 'most' and modern believers gambling is ok. If you do it with care and don't ruin your life.

How could it be a sin if you spend your well deserved money after you work hard for it? I know there is a sin about that, and that's "don't spend your children food money to useless things". If you live alone and have no mouth to feed other than yours then there's no problem about it.

The urge for enriching yourself is considered a sin in many religions. Not that i agree, but lust and temptation should be controlled.
If not we become the thing which we despise.

Beings controlled by lust, anger and greed. No compassion for others etc.

Gambling your wife and kids or their future is a sin. But if you would use the money you allocated for your entertainment to try out your luck, its just fine. Just remember, if your action doesn't have any bad effects on any other living being, your are just fine with your journey to hypothetical heaven.
