34. Gambling

Why should a Christadelphian avoid gambling? First, its motive is a bad frame of mind: greed, or covetousness. Second, gambling exemplifies a bad principle, that wealth should be dependent on “chance” and not on services rendered. The third charge against gambling concerns its bad social effects. The gambler’s loss often leads to suffering for his wife and children; debt sometimes follows, and then theft or other illegal activities in an attempt to recoup the losses.
