Christ says in Gsmbling 6: A guiding principle to consider is that both one's time and money belong to God. One of them gets the cabinets she wanted, and one of them gets the money he desired. Not so with gambling. The Tenth Commandment admonishes us not to covet. Two key biblical passages deal with the work ethic. Either you will hate the one and love xin other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.While the Scripture does not specifically address the subject of gambling, it provides us with a number of principles that can guide us on this. Many Christians wonder if gambling is a sin and what the Bible has to say about it. While casinos, lotteries, and other of today's get rich quick games aren't. In the same way, the ethics of Scripture clearly teach that gambling is wrong and a sin against God, not for one single reason but for many.
