While cleaning up my site, I noticed some comments got through on my site that I do not approve of, nor want on my site. As when I updated my newest header and changed the name, I had to go through an update process; which I believe the ability to moderate comments was accidentally cut off. I do apologize for this and they are now deleted.
The comments were mostly about Casinos and gambling. In addition had links to gambling sites. My belief is this being something I myself try not to partake of as a Christian. Now, I do understand we all sin in some way or another. And, do know that certain areas of life are a gamble in and of itself. But, money gambling is another thing, all together. I made my own choice to not gamble, as we all make choices to cut out or stay away from certain activities in life. I simply do not like gambling and will not allow emphasis of this on my site. Is it a sin? I guess it depends on one’s spiritual perspective on gambling. My perspective is gambling, especially if avidly partaking of it, is a sin. Although the Bible does not explicitly mention gambling, it does emphasize how the love of money is wrong. What else is gambling except in gains of and love of money?
“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. “ (1Timothy 6:10. NKJV).
If you would like to explore the precautions of gambling further please read article below. It additionally has more Bible verses in reference to this.
