Come on man. lol
no way you thought I was going to be that far out in left field. I hope.
Well I'd rather double check and give you the opportunity to clarify yourself then let myself or any others jump to a false conclusion.

I am not trying to make gambling ok, I simply cant call this action a sin without knowing without a doubt. This isnt a bridge that I will die for. The arguments that you make from James are great but they can be applied to anything and make anything a sin. I have actually used those same scriptures in the past as an argument against gambling.

I can promise you that when it comes to right and wrong that I dont follow my emotions. I only want to follow the word. I hope one of us finds the proof that I am looking for.

No sweat about the other day, water under the bridge.
I understand but disagree about the proof not being there. I guess we just disagree on the semantic of what sin is. Sin as described in the bible by Paul and others is clear. The book of proverbs has many verses talking about the corruptness of gains made at another expenses and not by hard work. To me that is all the proof needed. Not to mention what you said about stewardship. Blessing brother.
