ok Brothers here is my question. What is the original word for ill-gotten in 1 timothy 6:10? What is the definition of that word? Has that word been used anywhere else in the bible and if so what word was it translated to in english? I find doing this to be a great tool to help learning the scriptures as a lot of times things can be lost in translation. And words in other languages may not always have a exact match for that word in english.

Gambling is a sin because people are relying on luck, not on God. Andrew

I don't know if you will see this, but I feel the same way about alcohol. Someone having a small drink is okay, however, I don't have a small drink because I don't know when to stop. I just stay away from it.

The same would go for gambling. If you can't control it, then stay away from it. If probably is better to stay away form anything that the world considers to be sinful. Just my 2-cents.

Don’t Christians gamble all the time? They’re “gambling” that they have the correct religion and the correct denomination lol

Great answer. I was debating to get out of group lottery at work. 2019 is not the year i'm going to disobey my Lord.

They gambled for Jesus clothes.
Jonah drew lots.
So … Be very clear.
Is it ok to work in a casino?

The Bible does say that gambling is a sin.

You know I liked playing poker on my phone and played it a few times as a kid with my siblings with candy. My family mentioned sittin' down and playing poker with a 20 dollar throw in. I like the game of poker but it is a game that requires some motivation or consequence. I personally would just like to play a real poker game with my family. I don't care about losing twenty bucks. Let's say if I were to win. It'd be cool if I said dinner was on me and went out to eat or something?

4:55 where the verse is Romans 14:13 and not 13:14.

Gambling is not a crime, so no.
