Written by Tunde Korede
Betting is the action of gambling money on the
outcome of a race, game, or other unpredictable
event. Gambling or betting provides the temptation of
quick and easy riches.
Intermittently, our societies abound with temptations
that endear even Christians to join the growing
league of gamblers. Moreover, many people do not
see anything wrong in betting.
Although, there is nowhere where it is written that;
“thou shall not gamble.” But if you are truthful to
yourself. You will find out that Biblical principles are
against gambling and betting.
However, we shall consider the reasons why you
don’t need to gamble or bet as a Christian. This article
shall consider the reasons why betting is sinful from
biblical perspective.
Bad Effects Of Debt In One’s Life by Tunde Korede
Wrong Misconceptions About Gambling
Some people use casting of lots in the Bible to
rationalize their addictive betting habit.
During the time of Nehemiah as the Governor, people
who should live in Jerusalem were chosen by casting
lots (Neh 1:11).
Joshua distributed the land by casting lots in Shiloh in
the presence of the Lord (Joshua 18:10). Also, the
Apostles cast lots to determine whether to select
Matthias or Barsabbas to replace Judas (Acts :23-26).
But why is it sinful for me to gamble? Besides, the
Bible says;
Proverbs 16:33
[33]The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole
disposing thereof is of the LORD.
Since the outcome of the lot comes from the Lord.
Why is betting and gambling sinful?
Note this, the Israelites were instructed by God to
cast lots to distribute lands (Numbers 26:55). More so,
it was a normal practice for them to cast lots in Isreal
to determine certain issues. Read 1 Chronicles 24:5, 31.
Important points
The people who cast lot in the Bible didn’t do so to
get more money. They never did it with the
expectation of getting quick riches.
Hence, we cannot possibly equate betting or
gambling with casting of lots in the Bible. They are
different. What the Bible is against is acquisition of
wealth in an unjust and speedy manner.
Lots are cast to determine certain decisions not to
make money.
Get rid of that misconception. Betting or gambling to
acquire more money is sinful. It violates God’s
principles of wealth acquisition.
How To Erase Borrowing Mentality
Six Reasons Why Betting/Gambling Is Not Good For
You
• It’s A Proof Of The Love Of Money
1 Timothy 6:9-10
[9]But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a
snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which
drown men in destruction and perdition.
[10]For the love of money is the root of all evil: which
while some coveted after, they have erred from the
faith, and pierced themselves through with many
sorrows.
If you don’t love money excessively, you won’t bet to
acquire more money. People who practise betting are
those whose love for money is extensively high.
One of the temptations and snares people who want
to get rich fall into is betting. There are Christians
who find it absolutely difficult to give to the needy.
But they prefer to put their last little remaining
money on gambling.
Truly, betting is a proof of the love of money. And the
Bible frowns on this. Whoever wants riches should
work hard pray and be patience.
Christians Youths Must Develop These Four Skills
• Violation Of Kingdom Principle Of Wealth
Creation
Proverbs 13:11
[11]Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but
he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
In the Kingdom, wealth is gotten through labour. And
wealth is gotten little by little not once and for all.
Gambling is against biblical principles of wealth
creation.
To you, you might prefer betting as a good means of
making money. But the practice defiles God’s Word.
Its purpose is not in consonant with the Word of God.
Yes, the purpose is to make money. But how do you
explain a situation whereby a man bets #500 and
wins 20,000 without working.
Before, a man can win such amount of money, many
people would have lost theirs. That’s why many
betting companies are increasing in Nigeria and other
developed nations daily.
Excuse: Top Excuses You Must Never Make
• It Encourages Quick Money Making Syndrome
Proverbs 28:20
[20]A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he
that MAKETH HASTE TO BE RICH SHALL NOT BE
INNOCENT.
Here, what the verse means is this; whoever is hasty
to get wealth is not innocent/sinless. In other words,
making money in a very quick and easy way is
sinful.
No wonder our generation is driven by money. Many
of our youths are engrossed with the thought of
becoming like Dangote/Otedola or Trump in one day.
Dear friend, if you really want to make good money.
Sustainable wealth is not made by betting. No matter
what you think, you can build an enduring and
sustainable wealth through gambling.
• Gambling Leads To Addiction
Ecclesiastes 5:10
[10]HE THAT LOVETH SILVER SHALL NOT BE SATISFIED
WITH SILVER; nor he that loveth abundance with
increase: this is also vanity.
Although, there is nothing one cannot be addicted to.
One can be addicted to porn, football, books or
phones.
Meanwhile, people can also be addicted to gambling.
There are people who can use their spouse to bet.
And there are those who can use their newly-bought
car to bet.
For instance, you may start your betting journey with
#200 and end up betting a huge amount of money.
Frankly, that’s why you cannot leave your money in
the hands of some people. Because if you do, they
will use your money to bet.
Sexual Addiction And How To Be Totally Free From It
• Proof Of Covetousness
Luke 12:15
[15]And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of
covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the
abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Statistically, many of those who are chronic gamblers
today started through covetousness. When you want
to become a billionaire overnight, then, betting is your
last resort.
Once again, it a proof of covetousness and
greediness. Your life does not consist in the abundant
of things that you have.
Leave your friends alone if they are doing it. But be
determined to stand out as Daniel determined in his
days.
Five Reasons Why Christians Fall Sick Often
• It Promotes Laziness
2 Thessalonians 3:10
[10]For even when we were with you, this we
commanded you, that if any would not work, neither
should he eat.
God’s Word says, if anyone would not work, s/he
doesn’t deserve to eat. That’s the principle. Those who
work should be the one to eat.
Sadly, you can possibly eat and have more money
without working if you’re a gambler. And this
contradicts the Word of God.
Again, betting promotes laziness. Today, there are
some youths who will sleep all day and walk about
aimlessly. Why? Because they are sure that they will
definitely win.
Let’s work! Say no to gambling! Don’t twist the Word
of God because of your circumstances.
I know the Nigerian government is not employing
some of our graduates. But we should not disobey
God’s Word because of our situations and
circumstances. Pray to God for help and start doing
something.
God bless you all!
Please, let me know your thought after reading this
article. If I have offended you while reading this
article. I’m sorry. That’s God’s Word for you.
