      No where in the Bible is there a verse against gambling.

          You're right; there isn't.

          But the soldiers guarding Jesus while He was being crucified did gamble for the robes of Jesus.  Thus we associate gambling with evel.

              No where in the Bible is there a verse against gambling.

              Question: "Is gambling a sin? What does the Bible say about
              gambling?"

              Answer:
              The Bible does not specifically condemn
              gambling, betting, or the lottery. The Bible does warn us, however, to stay away
              from the love of money (1 Timothy 6:10; Hebrews 13:5). Scripture also encourages us to stay away
              from attempts to “get rich quick” (Proverbs 13:11; 23:5; Ecclesiastes 5:10).
              Gambling most definitely is focused on the love of money and undeniably tempts
              people with the promise of quick and easy riches.

              What is wrong with
              gambling? Gambling is a difficult issue because if it is done in moderation and
              only on occasion, it is a waste of money, but it is not necessarily evil. People
              waste money on all sorts of activities. Gambling is no more or less of a waste
              of money than seeing a movie (in many cases), eating an unnecessarily expensive
              meal, or purchasing a worthless item. At the same time, the fact that money is
              wasted on other things does not justify gambling. Money should not be wasted.
              Excess money should be saved for future needs or given to the Lord's work, not
              gambled away.

              While the Bible does not explicitly mention gambling, it
              does mention events of “luck” or “chance.” As an example, casting lots is used
              in Leviticus to choose between the sacrificial goat and the scapegoat. Joshua
              cast lots to determine the allotment of land to the various tribes. Nehemiah
              cast lots to determine who would live inside the walls of Jerusalem. The
              apostles cast lots to determine the replacement for Judas. Proverbs 16:33 says, “The lot is cast in the lap, but its
              every decision is from the Lord.”

              What would the Bible say about casinos
              and lotteries? Casinos use all sorts of marketing schemes to entice gamblers to
              risk as much money as possible. They often offer inexpensive or even free
              alcohol, which encourages drunkenness, and thereby a decreased ability to make
              wise decisions. Everything in a casino is perfectly rigged for taking money in
              large sums and giving nothing in return, except for fleeting and empty
              pleasures. Lotteries attempt to portray themselves as a way to fund education
              and/or social programs. However, studies show that lottery participants are
              usually those who can least afford to be spending money on lottery tickets. The
              allure of “getting rich quick” is too great a temptation to resist for those who
              are desperate. The chances of winning are infinitesimal, which results in many
              peoples’ lives being ruined.

              Can lotto/lottery proceeds please God? Many
              people claim to be playing the lottery or gambling so that they can give the
              money to the church or to some other good cause. While this may be a good
              motive, reality is that few use gambling winnings for godly purposes. Studies
              show that the vast majority of lottery winners are in an even worse financial
              situation a few years after winning a jackpot than they were before. Few, if
              any, truly give the money to a good cause. Further, God does not need our money
              to fund His mission in the world. Proverbs 13:11 says, “Dishonest money dwindles away, but
              he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.” God is sovereign and will
              provide for the needs of the church through honest means. Would God be honored
              by receiving donated drug money or money stolen in a bank robbery? Of course
              not. Neither does God need or want money that was “stolen” from the poor in the
              temptation for riches.

              First Timothy 6:10
              tells us, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people,
              eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many
              griefs.” Hebrews 13:5 declares,
              “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have,
              because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’” Matthew 6:24 proclaims, “No
              one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he
              will be devoted to the one and despise the other.

              You cannot serve both God and Money.”Blue Angel

                    I don't see my lotto play as a "love of money".

                    The Bible does warn us that the "love of money" is the root fo all evil.

                    The women who killed Abraham Shakespeare (the lottery winner) that was for the "love  of money".

                    There are people who will steal, kill and lie for money! That is the "love of money"!!

                     

                    Proverbs 13:11 does warn us about obtaining money but it's more about obtaining money

                    quickly through dishonest means, fraud or get rich quick schemes!

                     

                    We have to be careful not to look so HOLY that we act like we don't need money because we don't

                    want to appear that we love it. We need money!! We all have to eat! Keep a roof over our heads!

                    As long as we don't become a slave to the lottery we'll be alright.Smile

                              Helpmewin thinks this is all of our last day on earth and is trying to score points with St. Peter - lol!

                               

                              I am keeping it real to the end and will use that as my defence.

                              The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment
                              greater than these."
