The Christian way thinking

When I was a teenager and back from school, my mother found out that I had been to a casino by bunking a lecture. I don't really remember how she came to know about this thing but I can remember how furious she was when she saw the entry token with my name on it.

She kept telling me for days that I had ceased to be a Christian because I had committed a grave sin:

I was embarrassed and almost believed her that there is no greater sin perhaps than gambling. It was only after she passed away recently and while I was reminiscing about her, this thought struck me that if it was a grave sin then why are casinos legally operating across the world. I mean a lot of people do visit them and they do not have any stigma attached to it. And obviously, not everyone who goes to a casino goes there to gamble. Some go there for a nice entertaining time to catch up with friends.

Spending a nice evening is not a sin!

I worked for Mr. Smith, a very nice gentleman and a Christian first who would visit a casino every evening after his work. He did not really gamble except play a good friendly hand at the poker or maybe a slot if his friends insisted he does. apart from there, he went there to spend evening with his childhood buddies who were all too busy with their work in the day but made it a point to meet up at the casino, have a light-hearted chat over the day's events, play a couple of hands at the table or a slot or two, have a good game and then maybe call it a day and leave for home.

This is how gambling can stimulate economic growth:

This was his routine and he loved to network with his friends. Did it make him any less good human being? No, and a definite emphatic one at that.When you have tourists flowing into your area, it is obvious that they will stimulate the economy of the place too. This is exactly what is happening to the places that are famous as gambling heavens. When people come to places like Macau, Las Vegas Strip etc they are indirectly making the local economy rich.Some people may go back as losers, the amount of money that is already pumped into the economy!

Gambling Industry

Think of gambling as an industry which is able to generate a large number of jobs to the local population, the food industry that thrives as a result of the influx of large number of people into a place, the hospitality industry also gets a much-needed fillip when people stay in hotels and other boarding places. Some people may go back as losers, the amount of money that is already pumped into the economy!

You may also win!

Okay, the odds are small against the house but the fact that you enjoy and also occasionally that you can also win is a great feeling to have. It's like winning a lottery! We have had cases in the gambling history when people have been pleasantly caught unaware winning such whopping sums of money that they probably do not have to work for a lifetime even if they have to simply spend that much money. So there!

Participation is everything

It's like winning a lottery! We have had cases in the gambling history when people have been pleasantly caught unaware winning such whopping sums of money that they probably do not have to work for a lifetime even if they have to simply spend that much money.
