Where in the Bible is the teaching that gambling is a sin? I need to know the proof text on this subject. I have heard, read, and preached that gambling falls under the sin of covetousness. Would you agree with this? If it is a sin, why are so many Independent Baptist Fundamentalist attending the casino in Cherokee, NC? I have tried to preach against this to people in our community and they tell me of an evangelist that preached at the largest Independent Baptist in Asheville, NC they saw in the casino along with members of the same church. I am not trying to fight a larger church. I am sincere in needing help on this subject.
