        My understanding about gambling being an abomination is based on the Roman gaurds who cast dice for the robe of Jesus.  Otherwise the Bible is silent on the merits or evil of gambling.

          "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."

          Matthew 19:24

           

          Someone please tell me why true  Christians are playing the lottery?

            While it isn't a good thing for anyone to lust after wealth or anything else for that matter, there is nothing Christian or un-Christian to invest a little extra money in a chance to better provide for those cared about.

              It's easy to take one verse out of context and make it fit a specific ideology.  Matthew 19:24 does not condemn being rich, but it does condemn letting riches rule one's life.  When Jesus was talking to the young rich man, he was trying to tell him that he must be willing to give up everything for him and he used his wealth as an example, but it could have been anything that the young man was too attached to.  It can be a metaphor for anything, we are not to put our faith in money or people or material objects; we are to put our faith in Christ for salvation.  That is what it means to be a "true" Christian, trusting in Christ for our salvation. 

              This is why in 1 Timothy 6:17-19, it says to not put your trust in money, but to trust in God and to use one's wealth for good by helping those in need. 

              Also, one must take into account that there were many people in the bible that God gave wealth to.  God gave Job wealth after testing him, King Solomon was given wealth and wisdom, as well as King David.  Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were given wealth. 

              Wealth, in and of itself, is not a bad thing, but you can't make it your god.  If you use it for it's main purpose, as a resource to live and to help others, then it won't be a hinderance in one's Christian walk.

                    David is such an outstanding example of how we all should live.Disapprove

                      True Christian here!

                      I personally do not play the lottery or play the numbers that I post here.

                      I actually use this forum to test mathematics theories and methods of probability against randomness (a.k.a. lottery draws).  Once I have something perfected, I may start playing for the benefit of God's people.  Until then, I serve God by using my talents in the realm of mathematical theory.

                      Is this sinful?  If so, I ask God for great forgiveness.

                       

                      Last week, a woman came to my door and asked if I found Jesus.  I naturally responded, "I didn't know that he was lost.  Has he found you?"  Hopefully he can make his way around to your door as well.

                       

                      Good luck!  Pray that my theories finally come to a revelation for us all!  Conehead

                            Still formulating and testing theories and probabilities.  Once I have some solidly tested results, I will post.

                              David Repented- he was not a lying SOB, he took responsibility for his actions. Another thing to consider is that his adulterous affair had consequences, the child from that affair died. It also showed that no matter what our sin, we can be forgiven if we sincere- which David was.
                              Peter denied Jesus- forgiven. King Manasseh filled Jerusalem with blood, had Isaiah decapitated- he was forgiven.  Finger pointing does not help.
                              Repent...
