If this is what you believe, fine. But I think that it is the height of impertinence and disrespect of others to overlay your feelings and beliefs on other people.


Whether you like it or not you are subservient to Him. He controls everything that happens you, even though you may deny it. Nothing occurs without it being decreed from God. Thus you never know when you will die, maybe tonight, tommorow - only God knows when and where. Eventually you will return to Him and He will inform you of everything you did, nothing will be left out. You will not be wronged with anything, even if it's as small as an atom. I'm only here to warn you to this fact, accept it or not - that is up to you.

Gee Raul, how do you know that? Have you died and returned to tell everyone, or is this simply a figment of your imagination?

I coitenly hope it ain't no sin...cause I am gonna end up in hell if it is.

Actually, my poker play was a sin for a long while. It takes a bit of time to understand the game. My game has steadied considerably lately...and I am feeling good about it.

If I am gonna sin, though, I want a good looking woman helping me...if you get my drift.

Problem is, that there are folks fighting about which book has the "final word"! The more that I stand back and observe, the more nonsensical it appears to me.

It is a sin, it's a game of the Devil that does nothing but create animosity between people and make them forget their duties towards their Creator.


In that case, Able2Know is a sin.

Why do you think I joined this den of iniquity?

That reminds me of a story. A man goes up to a priest and says, "Do you save bad girls?"

The priest says, "Yes, my son".

So the man says, "Can you save me a couple for Saturday night! Laughing "

People frequently fail to live up to their own standards of right or wrong, let alone someone else's.

It is much easier to tell others how to behave than to behave properly ourselves.(even by our own standards)

@baddog1,
This is a great question mate...

Here is my view as a believer...

The Bible never claims that gambling is a sin...

But most would probably think that it is by being prudent like the Bible says...

But in any event going by scripture alone...It basically comments about certain things are just a waste...Or wasteful...meaning it is not really a sin...But it does not really help you in any sort of way...

So it really isn't any different that going to eat at a fancy resteraunt...Or spending excess money on a lofty pair of shoes or something...

But it is just kinda a waste to do it...Because it does not really help you in any sort of way...

And could be a problem...

I guess so long as you do not let it consume you, it is not really a problem...

But if it does, then it would be a sin...If you will...Hope this helped...
