The best way to deal with this is by become an agnostic so you admit that you don't really know if religions are real or some stupid fairy tale that people in middle ages believed due ignorance (most likely the second option is the case)

If that is done, then our lives will become one of those things is not fun. For we leave something mandatory we use for our lives (of the faith). The better we do a little gambling and does not perform the way that can ruin our lives and faith. At least we should be able to refrain

It is not, so long as you don't put others in the risk during the process, it's perfectly fine to gamble. However, remember that gambling too often might lead to addiction that would wreck your life in the future. So, gamble in moderation.

to me it depending on the religion, according to some religion like Islam gambling is sin, and has a great punishment for those people who found involve in gambling, but in some religion gambling is not consider as sin and you can exercise it freely.

The question I would have to raise is, what is considered the general rule of thumb to be considered a sin??  Every religion has its own language when it comes to this and if you are arguing apples to apples with some who is arguing oranges to oranges, you are arguing an endless battle with no winners.  Lets set some basic standards and then continue the conversation, so we are all on the same page!

In Christianity, I see no church in my country that is against gambling. They just don't care about it, the only thing the churches think about is separating them from the state, etc. If you take a look at the 10 commandments, there isn't any about gambling. Some people usually rely to the commandments to think if what they are doing is against the morals that Christ has set.

The church only teaches the good things and not the right thing... They teach nothing but morality and not living...But to be fair I think it is a sin if you already can't take care and feed your family because of your gambling/vice... I am not attending a mass or going to church but I think that things that I mention are taught in there that it is "wrong"...  Smiley

I don't know why the religion comes in gambling. I think no religion will tell us to do gambling. Forget about religion, if our parents know that we are doing gambling they will punish us. So here playing gambling is just depend on your risk. If you interested you can play or else stay away, that's it. Yes, suppose if we addicted gambling I am sure it will wreck our life.

Are you a Christian? A muslim? If not, I don't think it is a sinful thing. Or is gambling in your country? If still no, why are you sinful? It is real life.

I think these religions consider gambling as a sin because of the reason of addiction, people often become addict to gambling and they do not care about their wealth and their future and continue to gamble with them. So I think in those games where we do not become addicted and play there only for getting some entertainment it will be fair.

Addiction is one reason, the most important reason is greedy/love of money. In the Holy Bible, in 1 Timothy 6:10: For the love of money is a root of all evils, because of which some, aspiring after money, have been led away from the faith and pierced themselves through with many pains.

That's why gambling is the sin in Christian life. But if gambling for fun or for charity, this is not a sin. Like in Nordic countries, gambling is for charity, casino earnings in Finland contribute 100% to the National welfare system, which is beneficial to the poor/unemployed/refugees.

Gambling is not a sin. It can become a sin however, when you lose yourself in the gambling and start to neglect yourself or the people around you.

Gambling, as long as you can control it, is just fun. The chance of winning big is what attracts everybody and makes them come back.
I agree to that. Gambling is not a sin unless you do something terrible because of it like killing other because you lose and they win. And if you see and play it as for fun or past time, well its not. It's just like you were playing without doing bad like cheating, or rob money for you to have a capital for gambling. Well that's really a sin.

I think that gambling is really a part of our life. I am not referring to gambling games but in our daily life. We people really encounter problems in which we should have to gamble
That's true and I think gambling is bad if we abuse it. Gambling is a game that involving money some people treat gambling as making easy money but not all the time. It is depend of the result of your game. And if you lose all the time but continue playing it. I think that people is starting getting addicted to it.

   I'm not religious person, and I don't think its a sin to gamble. For religious persons almost all good things are sins, well I don't buy it! For many religious persons life is sin, because it started from a sin.
   People should do what they like, and if they don't hurt anyone with their actions its fine. Normally if people gamble too much, they will become addicted and that is not a good thing, for me everything is connected, if someone eat to much he will become very fat which is not good thing also.
   Anything that is used more then enough can harm, its the way the world works. People shouldn't abusenice things, cause after too much abusing, that thing start to fight back.

Gambling is not a sin activity nor can considered as bad thing.

It will become a sin if you absordbed the negative gambling effects . You are the one who will make it sinnable as you gambled. Remember that all you gambling action depends to your state of mind. It's up to you if you will be eaten by gambling system.

Gambling are forbidden by Muslims and they think it is sinful. But I saw one Muslim(https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1571457.0) is also a high roller who bet 1000 ETH per bet, maybe he is happy about the profit, but I think his Allah is angry. LOL.

No matter   what religion do you belong its normal for us to commit mistakes because we are just humans by the way but its up on their decision if they obey your  commit such mistake. For me its not a sin if you treat it as an entertainment but if you already risking  all your money and  it compromises your  life and your family then it would  be a very big mistake.

Talking about sin back to the religious rules, but of course everyone has their own opinion but in religion rules it's clearest.
Nobody is perfect, every person makes mistakes, so if you consider whether gambling is a sin or not people still do it. I do gambling, but just for fun not to earning money for life, mostly people do the same. When you get addicted to it and ruin your life, that's why gambling consider as a sin.

You are totally correct, I fully agree with you dude.  Grin  If people gambling for fun, no religion would defines this is a sin, because it is not for money. If they hunter for money, they may lose the family, house, car and so on. Which is a sin, even for non-religion people.

Correct if you treat it as a hobby or entertainment only then  its not a sin, but when you become greedy on playing gambling then its already a sin since greed  is  one of the original sin in the bible and you couldnt deny that thing which is really true that greed  wouldnt do any good  to you.

Gambling is not sin but it comes in category of norms just like telling a lie is considered bad habit and a liar is not welcomed in any society same gambling is a bad thing. It is prohibited in many societies by religion perspective just to save people from being victim of it which creates problems in society. It is kind a moral valued thing more than sin, in simple words.

For me gambling is a sin, because why are you gambling? Only for fun or profit? We are going to be honest we it the main reason why people are gambling is that they want to have a lot of money because they are hoping for it. And we all know that the love of money is the root of all evil things. So, when you run out of funds for your gambling needs then you can do bad things just for it.
