Gambling: for or against?

Rate this item
(6 votes)



Gambling is betting money or a valuable thing on the result of an event or a game. If a person bets cash that a given football team will win the match, this is an example of gambling.  If the gambler is right, he wins money.  If he is wrong, the money bet is lost. 


Though gambling may bring about a lot of benefits to the gambler, it is said to cause more harm than good. What do you think? Is gambling a social problem? Should the goverment regulate gambling or ban it? Why/why not.

    The gambler, according to the religious perspective, is driven by greed, a lust for money and, in particular, money won rather than money earned.

    Having established this set of assumptions, the religious logic associates gambling with broader, more explicit “sins” – such as laziness, slothfulness and so on.

    It is an easy way to get money. A real advantage for the person who benifits but a real catastrophy for many others.

    People who are obsessed with gambling act like drug addicts or alcoholics. They can do whatever they can to gamble. They can force family members to give them money; they can steal; they can even commit a crime to get money. Gambling provides no positive to society. For all these reasons, gambling must be banned.
