According to the bible,gambling shows God that people aren't trusting that He will provide for whoever is playing,instead they are relying on chance because the person gambling feels what God hasn't given him or her enough to be satisfied with.LUKE chapter 3,verse 14 tells us to be content with our wages.

The difference between reading the Bible and quoting what someone says the Bible says involves reading the actual text while considering the possible meanings within the context.  Most people who've ever taken the trouble to read the scriptures aren't able to find anywhere it says gambling is a sin.

On the off chance you've ever read parts of it and come to the conclusion it does, congratulations on having found one interpretation of the words printed there.

    I have been studying it for the past 12 years because some christians told me I was going to hell.So if I took them at their word,that would make me a fool if I didn't research it for myself.I'm not knocking anyone anyone for gambling,I play and was checking the #s and looked around and here I am.Gambling,stealing,using Gods name in vain is still sin in His eyes.It's all the same to Him=SIN.I just asked the same question b4 and what I found is what I shared in the first post. Sorry if I offended anyone.Thats not what I meant to do.
