Question of the day: gambling.
Sorry that this QOTD post is late. I’ve been sick the past couple of days and (obviously) haven’t been posting. My intention was to have posted over the weekend – I even have a few vlogs ready, but I never got around to it, being in my sickly state and all. 😉
So, without further procrastination, I present this week’s question of the day post.
Why is gambling and playing the lottery “wrong,” but investing in the stock market isn’t?
If playing slot machines and other such casino games is wrong, then why is it okay for children to play arcade games? Isn’t the idea the same? You play the game in hopes of “hitting the jackpot” so you can earn money/vouchers to redeem.
What about raffles? What about buying a 50/50 raffle ticket at your work’s Christmas party, or buying a raffle ticket to support your nephew’s wrestling team fund raiser – are those wrong as well?
Thoughts? Reasons? Scripture? Leave a comment below with your opinions.
