I heard a preacher say that the Bible isn't silent on the subject of gambling and I'd like to hear what you say about the verses that I'll mention. I have 3 verses to discuss. The first verse is Proverbs 20:21. I don't see gambling there. Is it there or would I have to read into the text in order to make it be there? The second verse is Proverbs 28:8. Obviously, it isn't usury, so unjust gain is supposed to mean gambling. Does it? Finally, we have 1 Timothy 6:9-10. So, the love of money is a bad thing. Where's gambling in this? I can love money and not gamble with it. I found it very interesting that the preacher didn't spend much time explaining why those verses were against gambling. He just read them and said that they were against gambling, but didn't explain why they were against gambling. I have my idea about why he did that, but I don't want to go into that at the moment. I think the case against gambling is made by discussing whether gambling makes you a good steward of the resources God has given to you. Please let me know your thoughts on the verses mentioned above and/or the topic of gambling. I'll give bonus points if you can educate me about the original languages, because the only way I see gambling in any of those verses is if one of them hasn't translated well to 21st century American English.
