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

Maybe in some kind of religion but gambling is no sin to me brother.

Enjoy yourself, do what makes you happy.

Exactly right. If you start thinking about everything that's believed to be sin,
you will always be living in sin and it will seem like everything you're doing is wrong

I think it is not a sin to gamble as long as your religion allows it. And in most countries it is illegal so you can only do that underground or online behind a VPN.

If you gamble for greed and money, then it could be considered a sin.
If you gamble for entertainment, then it's not really a sin.

Why would you care though? You were promoting a scam knowingly, which is a sin.

There is nothing like that. Both of them you saying is gamble so it is the same thing. It is just some perception that saying gambling is sin. What is the different between trading, you also gambling but only a different perception so there is nothing to do with sin as long as you can profit it is ok

Both are the same thing; gambling, but they are actually quite different. Gambling for greed and money can take you over and ruin your life; you will constantly need money to fuel your addiction. You might even borrow money to gamble from others. However, gambling for fun is recreational, doesn't take up all your money, and won't hurt people around you if it is purely for fun.

sin is not that simple. sin is not necessary ruining any life. sin is thing that harms your soul. not all the fun things are good for your soul. the best and most happy condition for soul is completely calm, like a calm lake surface. sins are things that break that calm condition.

I don't get it why religion has anything to do with morality. You should be living good life for your own sake and not for some imaginary entity or because you are told that is right.
Humans are intelligent enough to think for themselves. If you are not harming yourself and people around you by your gambling habits - then it is fully acceptable hobby.

Not at all, I think gamble is not a sin unless you do it against your own rules in life and break promises made by you to urself.

u think ppl are intelligent enough? think again. maybe u are intelligent enough, but not everyone.
ppl suffer tons of events in their whole lives and may fall in deadlock that doesn't let them live good life.
religion relates with morality because morality is it's main mission, is what it's up to, for thousands years, at least for some big main religions.

i would like to think that religion and personal belief and social belief shape the morality. what is right and what is wrong can be interexchange depending on different perspective.

as far as im aware it is a sin in many of the religions that i know, i think it would be better to gamble only for entertainment and not for greediness to earn as much money as possible

The problem is - we all live in material world. We can eat the words of wisdom of mouth our religious leaders. Without ambition and healthy 'greed' (also called force of progress by some) human evolution is not possible. Some religion had moral code back from thousands of years aren't we a bit more educated and smarter now? For example alcohol is forbidden in Islam, and how western people feel about that?

Who cares? Are we stuck in medieval times still? Gambling ain't going anywhere as long as human beings are around.

Greed is one of the so-called seven deadly sins, and that only comes in when your want for money is so strong that even if you hurt others or sacrifice others' happiness in the way, for the sake of getting more money, you'd do it anyway. Most religious restrictions sucks btw. As long as you're happy and not hurting anyone in the process, why worry about sins anyway?

Maybe not if your winnings are being donated for the greater good of the poor but who's winning anyway, most of the gamblers are also at a loss.

Gambling is Ok if you don't get addicted to it. Becoming addicted to gambling is like being a drug addict or an alcoholic. If you can't handle it you better stay out!

It depends on someone's religious beliefs if gambling is allowed in his/her religion or not.

Its a sin without a doubt. Someone in this thread said you are playing with your own money and not doing something illegal but where are you getting your money if you win? From other persons, so both parties involved in gambling are sinners. I have quit not long time ago, but anyway I used to play just for fun,if I could find right results for the matches but have quit. Religion helps you immensely to quit it, no other alternatives.

Only religion can help you , especially strong ones like Islam in which gambling is explicitly an error (sin)

You can try all others, they will help you only temporarily, only religion will help you to quit once and for all.

This is just my opinion though and personal experience. I tried many things, self control and everything, but I kept getting back to gambling. Once I embraced religion, now I fear God thats why I stay away from gambling.
