Gambling is poison.  
« on: March 26, 2002, 12:17:09 AM »
Gambling is a hugely popular form of entertainment.  Casino's rake in millions, billions of dollars a year.  But let me describe the side that is concealed, hidden, and lost in all the bright lights, and beautiful archetecture.  The gambling addict.
The gambling addict is low on excitement and stimulation, an gambling fills a void in there life.  But filling the void is an illusion.  It's based around the thinking of, "Damn, I almost got it."  That's what America is all about.  It's called the land of oppurtunity.  Well I call it the land of, "Damn, I almost got it."  You think you would have filled that void, if you just would of won that last hand.  And when you do win the hand, you briefly experience the filling of that void, and more greatly desire to eat into the flesh of the devils temptation.  This is the devils plan.  Man against man.  It is dependant on illusion.  The illusion, that you are filling a void in your life.  But material wealth and physical gain is all an illusion.  And it will all be stripped from you, if you need proof, I offer the example of the generations before us.  All wiped out, and all their wealth, stripped from their right palm.  But the soul is eternal.

Lighten up

Gambling is fun, as long as you use common sense and don't go to far.  One of the problems of the muslim world is that it doesn't give its peoples the chance to use common sense instead it enforces itself, this breeds low self esteem and the feeling of a lack of freedom, which causes far more problems than gambling.

He's not saying you can't gamble.  He's just advising against it, because it's a rigged form of entertainment.  Gambling, ALWAYS comes out in favor of the proprietors... or else they wouldn't be in business.  How do you think they afford all that gold, the beautiful fountains?  Caesers Palace was BUILT off of the money of regular, everyday people who came there and lost.  

Like you said, people should have the choice.  But ultimately, if YOU hit it big, how many of your brothers will have to lose big to make up for the 100 grand you won?  Like he said, Man vs. Man, and that's definately, definately the devil's plan.  For you to win 100 grand, that means the casino is up at least a million.  It's the devil using man's hungers to hurt other men; there is no free ride in life, there is no big cashout, because in order for you to hit it big, someone else has to lose it big.  That's why people can't live up to god's standards, and can't even have prosperous lives, because their brothers hold them down and climb up the ladder over them as often as they can.  

Peace~

Oh, and about not taking it with you... Jesus said

'render to Ceasar that which is Ceasar's, and to God what is God's."

Money is of man, love, life, charity, compassion, liberty, happiness, freedom is of god.

I think about gambling like alcohol. If you have a little bit to drink, just because you enjoy the beverage, then it's okay. But once you begin drinking for the sole purpose to become drunk every night then it is absolutely wrong.

Same with gambling, if you play because you enjoy the game then it's okay. But once you do it just to hit the jackpot and youend up like gamblers who give away all their belongings then it is wrong.

Exactly.  I didn't stress that point enough, that it's winning at your fellow man's expense, man vs. man, we should be trying to come up together.  And I'm just trying to water the seeds with wisdom, cleanse the the pollution oppressing the mind, and social narcotics that plaque our society, bring the truth to light, so the seeds can grow with knowledge of self.  Like Noah (peace be unto him) said, "I am but a warner."

It breaks down to this.  The problem with moderation is, you're moving away from god... because to not do it at all would be like god, God doesn't gamble.  Moderate gambling might not be a problem, BUT, God would'nt do it even moderately.  A Serious gambler is obviously closer to satan, so why even meet him halfway?  It's like people that socially drink are Half Alcoholics, as opposed to not being an alcoholic, you know?

I definitely understand what your saying. But gambling is not the only way you move away from God. Listening to music that doesn't glorify the Lord is also moving away from Him and we all do that. So completely condemning one thing while something else is about just as bad is like a double standard.
