What Does The Bible Say About Gambling?

The bible doesn’t either condemn or encourage gambling. Perhaps, because when it was written, gambling as we understand it today didn’t exist.

There are a couple of quotes from the bible that those who think God would want gambling to be abolished are happy to use to their advantage. One is to “stay away from the love of money” – but you could use that to abolish any businesses that try and make their owners and members a tasty profit.

The other quote is “stay away from attempts to get rich quick”. Now that is something that we agree with here at Betting Gods – as we recommend the long-term approach to making a profit from gambling.

Now, if you’re the kind of religious person that thinks gambling should be abolished, I won’t try and challenge your faith in any way – so, please, stop reading this article. However, I do have a funny story about a couple of people who took their ante-gambling measures one step too far for some people’s liking.

I used to work for an on-course bookmaker when I was younger, and I remember turning up one day at Haydock’s big winter meeting. Outside the entrance stood two anti-gambling religious believers that were happy to spout off how God was going to send us all to hell.

Funnily, just as a big group of Liverpudlians walked past, one of the men shouted out, “Jesus Christ will be your saviour”. To which one wag shouted back, which race is it running in, mate?”

Put Your Faith In Us

I’ve always found religious faith hard to understand. But I’m not an atheist, more of an agnostic that believes that God may or may not exist. I hopefully won’t find out for a while yet so, for now, I’m happy to put my faith in hard work and the relentless study of the form book. After all, it’s been said that, “God helps those that help themselves.”
