Gambling – IV

Fourth, gambling is a form of state-sponsored greed. We read in Romans 13 that government is to be a minister of God. Government should provide order in society and promote public virtue. Legalized gambling undercuts government’s role and subverts the moral fabric of society through greed and selfishness promoted by a state-sponsored vice.
Many state governments like gambling because it is a source of revenue that is not a tax.  That sounds like greed – because revenue by definition is a tax.
