of course gambling is a sin ,everybody know that ! but it's an easy way to earn money without any problem Cheesy
I agree if you say it's a sin, because it is the truth. but I do not agree when you say it's easy to make money from gambling, because most people who gamble, ended up with losing. it proves that it is very difficult to make money from gambling
Well to me it's not actually a sin on its own. But perhaps it is a very strong influence on doing bad things. Tempting you to do even more bad and inhibit that mindset.

yeah totally correct.

And addition to it, if gambling have a negative effects on your living, especially with your social responsibility, then treat it as a wrong doing and consider it as a sin.

but if it doesn't actually affects any one then I think it should be fine.

But always try to think if your religion consider gambling as a sin.


This Gambling is made for our entertainment, so I too agree it's a sin. In this gambling not only a few people all most 90 percent gamblers lost their money here the only number of individuals can make money in gambling. So let's treat this is a fun game, not a money making machine it's totally wrong.

It is upto you how would you consider. If you place a bet with the amount you can afford also to stay without it then its fine. But if continuously loosing the bets and loosing big amount than its not considered to be wise.


This has nothing to do with betting in small or large amount. but it's about gambling that is considered a sin, and this is just a religious issue.

it depends on religions, areas, time... some big religions consider it a sin, some countries ban it,... with deep and wise reasons.
it also depends on each person. like Buddhist consider drink alcohol is a sin, but there is a famous Chinese legendary Buddha named Te Cong still drinking day by day, but he still keep his soul clear.

but there are people who do not want to gamble and sometimes only for fun they come to there and only bet a little amount for fun and think that after that they will stay away from there and after getting some fun from there they come again and again.

Being Muslim it is a sin in Islam. and not allowed in any shape. but i dont know about the other religions that either it is allowed in other religions or not. and either it is allowed and legal by other states of the world. i think in most of the countries it is not allowed and is illegal.

Depend on what religion that your family believe in.
Most religion will say that gamble is a sin but it has objective view so many people will tolerance gamble with their own belief.
For me As long as I can responsible with my act, I have no problem for gambling

But how can it be called a sin? It is your decision whether to do it or not, so how can this thing be blamed in the end?
When someone wins something from it, they say that I won with my luck, but when they lose, they start blaming gambling for it. Why?

Well.. Lets break it down. Gamble = (1)playing games of chance for money or (2)to take risky action in the hope of a desired result. The latter description can immediately be ruled out seeing as Abraham bargains with God((2)(Genesis 18:23-25)) and of course God indulges in this "gamble". Instead of saying no to (2), God actually partakes in this risky action where Abraham is trying to get what he wants. At this point it could go either ways. Perhaps God is indirectly saying that gambling is okay?

What does the scripture say? As an example, casting lots is used in Leviticus to choose between the sacrificial goat and the scapegoat. Joshua cast lots to determine the allotment of land to the various tribes. Nehemiah cast lots to determine who would live inside the walls of Jerusalem. The apostles cast lots to determine the replacement for Judas and many more. All that is left is playing games of chance for money. Is this wrong?

Was it wrong for the disciples to pluck the heads of grain on the Sabbath? Matthew 12:1-14. Read this also Matthew 12:3-4.

Bearing these things in mind, notice how skillfully the Lord answered the challenge of the Pharisees. Knowing full well that He would not change the Pharisees’ minds about the disciples’ actions being viewed as work, Jesus allowed the allegation of Sabbath-breaking to go unchallenged (even though wrong).

Looking at such questions trying to determine indefinitely what is wrong or right is the wrong way to go about it. Gambling, drinking, eating in moderation is fine in my opinion. The moment you go "all in" and overdo it.. that's where the real problem lies. I could quote more, and give more opinions of how I connect certain lines within scripture, but the conversations is way to big to do it all in one go..

Ps. Instead of wondering if gambling is right or wrong, rather concentrate on how your love is for your fellow man and God..   Grin

as far as I know that almost all religions considers gambling is a sin even in some countries gambling is legal but for the particular religions that obviously gambling is a sin but although for some people already know it they would not care about that and still do a gambling because gambling has already become their hobbies

It is the intention behind the gambling that dictates this. If you are gambling out of desperation or to excess, that is a lack of faith and respect for the Creator. Gambling small amounts for fun, however, is not wasteful of disrespectful, it's simply a way that passes the time that doesn't really harm anyone. Foolishly throwing away the resources the Lord has given to you doesn't seem like that would be high up on His thank you list.

Gambling is never a sin for sure. It neither harms the religion nor any culture. But personally i don't do a lot of gambling
because its just waste of money not sin though.

That's right, in the religion of islam. Indeed barred from gambling because it risks and dangers in the gambling is extremely complex and can harm a gambler. We know if someone does gambling have certainly gambling as his heart and always use greed (not all players), not only that she also did gambling brutally and finally get the defeat. Gambling in the eyes of islam is prohibited and unlawful, because uncertainty contain elements of gambling.

Not a sin, but i'm not religious...

I was religious and even studied in the field for a few years before I became pagan scum  Tongue

Basically, even if it is a sin, and you avoid it, you are still doing countless other sins, sometimes not even aware of it. Read the holy book from beginning to end.. it starts out as don't do this, do that etc.. as you progress a bigger picture forms and the smaller things fall away..

Gambling is not a sin! Doesn't matter what any book says, only bad thing in gambling is when someone ignore family and other important things cause of gambling. Spending money that is needed for some important things. But its not just gambling, other things can also make people to forget and ingore important things in life. Basically sin clis not in things around, it can be in us. We make things look good or bad.
Simply follow words that are written in every casino, gamble with responsibility. Don't spend more then you can afford, don't ignore kids at home cause of gambling, and everything will be OK. Overdrive in anything is not good. Be moderate in everything and you will not have problems with gambling or any other addiction.

"Is it a sin to gamble?"

I guess that's dependent upon the creator....what does your book say the creator thinks about it?  We all have different belief systems but if we judged the tree by the fruits it produces, then maybe we could come upon a consensus as to the true benefits of the activity....Let's start by asking: Does gambling create wealth or destroy wealth?
