    I dont think Mr Swan actually read them. Hes drawing a really long bow to tie them to gambling and alcohol.

    They more relate to greed and excess.

    But anyway.

    Don't need to hear the interpretation of those passages

    I would like old mate to point out where it references gambling as none of them dont

    It references the pursuit of money and it being your main focus

    It fits in more with Nigerians sending you emails than it does gambling on the horses or pokies

    Matter of fact it is a classic example of why Google can't be trusted as a source of information as it makes shit up and isnt accurate

    If you also read them it will also state that

    What does the Bible say about gambling?
    Many people wonder is gambling a sin? Although there might not be a clear cut verse from what we learn in Scripture I strongly believe it is a sin and all Christians should stay away from it. It is terrible to see that some churches are bringing gambling in the house of God. The Lord is not pleased.

    So Google is referencing some guys opinion as a fact when it can't even find a legitimate citation from the source document

    I'm not a religious person.

    I answered the question regarding where the "good book" pointed out where gambling was against their religion. I read quite a few of them, along with the interpretations provided by the authors of the articles as appropriate. I haven't drawn any bow towards anything. I've merely referred people to interpretations on the two topics being discussed. At no point did I give an opinion on them. However; I agree with your interpretation that the passages refer more to greed (in the case of gambling) and excess (in relation to alcohol).

    More broadly, there are many bible passages that are open to interpretation. But that's a whole other road that i'm not about to go down.

    But the grift is in the interpretation.
    Its why journalists write the articles, and management write the headlines.

    Members point is correct, theres no direct line in there to prove your point.

    But thats the folly of religion, every sunday morning snake oil selling preacher will tell you 'exactly' what the bible means, and you can use it to hide behind whatever you want.

    When no one in this world can agree on interpreting hard data on things like climate and fiscal policy then trying to find meaning in a book written thousands of years ago is pointless.

    Knights player "supported" for refusing to come off and abusing training staff - showing passion apparently.

    Ricky Stuart stood down for also showing passion, with wording I really can't see as offensive to anyone but the softest snowflake. It was a dog act.....

    They have lost the plot.
