We're grateful for the opportunity to spare much of collection throu~th the use of the Internet." ~3ource: AP - Salt Lake City, 1summarized by Pastor Rick Ask Pastor Rick Does the Bible say gambling is a sin? The Bible does not directly address the issue of gambling [there is no 11th Commandment "Thou shalt not gamble"], therefore Christ followers have reached very different theological conclusions regarding it. Those who oppose gambling• do so base~l on "principles," which would include, but is not limited to thefollowing: Stewardship - meaning, Christ followers are obligated to be goodJ stewards of their resources and gambling puts them at undue risk. Closely associated with stewardship is... Squandering - meaning, everything we have is God's, therefore gambling squanders God's property. Dishonest Gain - meaning, the gain is not a'reward of honest labor. Foolishness - meaning, gambling is unwise and foolishness is related to sin. And finally... Damage - meaning, the destruction it does to those who lose. Rick Hill is the Senior Pastor at Hillside Church on 3rd and C Streets in Julian, CA.
