Nice advice.

Tell that to the people who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. You think they want to be addicted? No but they have trouble quitting that's why its called an addiction.

Its very difficult to quit gambling if you are addicted.

Yeah and its not at all easy to quit gambling if you are addicted and if it is the only source of your income then its impossible to quit, may god help them in a better way to earn money.

It is not a sin for atheists. God, being an atheist is so awesome.

Sin or not, it is stupid if you try to make a fortune out of gambling. Same goes for killing people, stealing stuff, being a liar... You don't need them to be sin, they are just bad habits. :0

For the record, it's not a sin for Christians as well, it's dictated by the intent of the actions, as are most things like this. You can't tell me it's a sin to wager a nickle between friends over some small binary option of little consequence.

Yep, i'm siding with this. Betting on its own won't impose the activity whether it's a sin or not. The nature of the action, why he did it how he did it would actually determine if it's a sin.
Why would it be a sin, I consider gambling as fun and enjoying and its not a sin at all, maybe if its forbidden by your religion its a sin but other than that its not.

Actually it is a sin in christianity too. Gambling and greed goes hand to hand. You may aruge with that and say the otherwise but it doesn't matter. Gambling equals Greed %90 of the time. And i know greed is a sin almost in every religion there is.

This is a free world and there are things that you could decide what to do. Gambling is one of them. It can be considered a sin, but we commit sins everyday of our lives. Just don't gamble too much and just do it for fun and everything is still good.

Gambling is fun and you can play it for entertainment, so I do not think personally that it is a sin to gamble.
If you are addicted to it and you have a family you have to take care of and you gamble all day then I do think that it is wrong.

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

Yes it is 100%, and it is a very bad sin, and if you are into it you should stop and get out of this game, below are some Noble Verses from the Noble Quran:

Quote
"They ask thee concerning wine and gambling. Say: "In them is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit." They ask thee how much they are to spend; Say: "What is beyond your needs." Thus doth God Make clear to you His Signs: In order that ye may consider-  (The Noble Quran, 2:219)"

"O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,- of Satan's handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper.  Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of God, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?   (The Noble Quran, 5:90-91)"

I don't consider it a sin. This is the free world. Let people do what they want with their money and time. If you kill people it is a sin, but gambling? Greed is just a human emotion, it's can be bad, but a sin? Nope.

Gambling is not a sin but if it is done out of greed then it is a sin. When your family has no food to eat because you gamble then it is a sin. When you dont give to charities but you are addicted to gambling is a sin. When you dont pray but instead gamble then it is a sin. Gambling is not a sin when its done in entertainment, not out of addiction, and not eating your allocations for your family and charity, not eating your time for God and Humanity. Its not a sin if its not too much.

You are right in the most of your comment but You really mixed the things at the end which gives another direction.Gamble is sin and we can;t say that it isn't, it is addicted, consumes time, money etc.

Bible does not say or mention that it's a sin, but Bible mentioned something about love of money or greed. If it's for fun or entertainment I guess it's not considered as a sin.

Yes bible didn't say anything about gambling because gambling is not really bad, it is depending of who are playing gambling if the player starts to be greedy then it should be a sin, and gambling is bad for the people who cannot control their mind and body.

I think that you don't see some of the people who actually run the full of life with goodness and they were very avoiding to sin. How are you doing is sinful and can negatively impact your life in true nature

To be real I do not think that it is a sin to gamble because people should decide for them selves what they are going to spend there money on.
If a man or women wants to spend there money on gambling we should not judge them.

I think so gambling is not a religion and it depend on player thinking, if somebody aware of risks and disadvantages of gambling than he will never play on gambling sites with their hard earned money, but I think gambling is not sin if we are not addicted of it.

if you are leaving in a free country or on your culture you are not believing in any religion your point is correct but to those who had been raised in place where religions exist it Is written from what ever book that they've believing that gambling is a sin.

It is not a sin. Gambling is sin for me if you gamble your money that you use for other needs or it is for school expenses, bill in your house, electric bill, water bill. That is a sin if you gamble that money. But if you gamble your excess or dont need or money that excess in your wallet it is not sin. Because in that money WIN or Loose you didnt use the money that reserved to pay your bills.

i dont think any constraint is mentioned in bible or hindu religious book that Gambling is a sin , i find only islam which says gambling is haram (sin).
what i feel is that till the time you are doing gambling for fun it is good but the time you tend to do it for living it become haram(according to Islam).

Bible does not say or mention that it's a sin, but Bible mentioned something about love of money or greed. If it's for fun or entertainment I guess it's not considered as a sin.

Yes bible didn't say anything about gambling because gambling is not really bad, it is depending of who are playing gambling if the player starts to be greedy then it should be a sin, and gambling is bad for the people who cannot control their mind and body.
yes bible has not say any thing directly about gambling but there are are so many clues in bible and Quran where you can easily understand that gambling is a sing and Allah forbid us to play gambling.

Not a sin for someone with - 8 negative trusts from the DT. I mean what could be worst than scamming people or promoting it? As far as gambling is concerned, no God ever said don't gamble. Neither Bible mentions it. That should be convincing.
Well played,  sir, well played.  Lol

I don't think gambling is a sin at all, but I'm not religious anyway.  There are so many religions around that you're going to get 1000 different answers to thos question.  And can't we please leave religion out of bitcoin?

Well religion is all about keeping yourself in check. I doubt going wild on gambling fits the definition of the good life.
