commentary: Gambling: A Question of Motive
Martin G. Collins
Given 01-Dec-12; Sermon #1132c; 10 minutes
Martin Collins, focusing upon the addiction of gambling, examines the lure of effortless profit and the way of get, an addiction motivated by covetousness. The motive of covetousness militates against contentment. Government lotteries, claiming to finance education, deceitfully promote greed and covetousness. Lotteries, unfortunately, have become a tax on the poor and gullible. Gambling violates God's legitimate ways of accumulating wealth, but instead emphasizes the entitlement mentality and the way of get.
