Common Misconception in the Bible Teachings – Gambling is Not a Sin

To those who seek the truth shall find the truth, to those who seek to justify their sinful actions shall also find the reason to justify their actions. The truth is spiritual discerned by the men who have submitted to the Spirit of Truth, so they can see the Truth; this is not of the human mind but of the Spirit. All who loves the truth will see the Truth; all those who are covetous minded will see the lie and believe the lie send to them. Satan is a great deceiver and he still is.

Isaiah 6:9
He said, “Go and tell this people: ” ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’

1 Corinthians 2:13-16 (New International Version)

13This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.

14The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment:

16″For who has known the mind of the Lord

that he may instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

What is the prime objective of gambling?

The act of gambling involves the wager of money to obtain a higher return. This is a zero sum game someone loses and someone gains by the device of producing an outcome, heads tails, red black, odds evens, and big small. There is an outcome. But what is the objective of gambling? Isn’t the sole purpose being to increase your monetary returns within a short period of time, not through providing a service or a product but by pure wager in one casting of the dices? แทงบอล

I am deeply applauded that some Christians who are men of high position and even leaders in their personal careers can say that gambling is not a sin, occasional gambling can be fun. It is the same as saying that stealing a little and sinning a little is fun and is not a sin. This goes to show that men of status in the community are not necessarily men of spiritual understanding. This is not synonymous at all and they should not be allowed to speak on behalf of God in their lives. Rich men are not necessarily godly men, we do not know how they gain their wealth and we can not say they must be blessed by God since; the poor spiritual man is more highly esteemed in the eyes of our Lord God. What is highly valued in the eyes of men is an abomination to our God.

Men who achieved wealth are also not truly knowledgeable in spiritual things. Even pastors tend to make such mistakes about these people. They may achieve status and position yet they can be sinners who are church goers, professing the faith but choosing their own ways versus God’s way. My ways are not your ways, says the Lord of Host. We are to follow the teachings of Christ and the Scripture; we are not to follow the situational logical human thinking of our own imagination. After all, Jesus is the one who will judge us not our own understanding and presumption.

If you seek the truth you shall see it clearly, it is written in the Ten Commandments. But if you insist that the word gambling must be written then it is not. Covetousness is the act of coveting someone else property that include money as well. Because I see gambling as a sin therefore the word of God reads to me as the same thing which I meditate in my mind. Yet my mind is already washed by the blood of the lamb so I see the truth. Subject all argument to the obedience of the Spirit of Christ. The word reads that we are not to covet anything that belongs to our neighbor and that includes their money as well
