Gambling is not a sin.  And none of those passages condemns gambling.  If you personally don't like gambling (why are you on a lottery website??) that does not mean it is bad or condemned for all. 

As with all things in life, moderation is the key.

Pornography, Crack Cocaine, and arson also isn't mentioned in the bible but they both violate GOD's laws.
The bible may not specifically mention anything about ''gambling or betting but it does warn those that believe in the scripture to stay away from attempts to ''get rich quick'' found in Proverbs 13:11 23:5, Ecclesiastes 5:10
And I never said I personally don't like gambling. I gamble all the time on Powerball/Mega Millions, but I do it in moderation and do not sacrifice my family, bills, or bank account for a hope and a chance at beating the odds. I have not devoted my full obedience over like these pastors/priest supposedly did.
What I do NOT like is that this church is asking its members for scratch off/lottery tickets. I find it low as I hold Church leaders to a higher standard since they are the ones preaching the word of GOD and they chose to pledged their full obedience to GOD and not man. THEY know the word and know better.
