Flagpole, I will respond to you because you seem to take this quite lightly.
My family member will not ascend into God's Kingdom in Heaven. He has debased himself with this evil. It saddens me that the bright person he was only 10 years ago is now almost gone. He surrounds himself with evil. He doesn't even visit on holidays. Gambling, drinking, and partying are his way of life now. His income does not matter at this point, its his soul.
So while you may take Gambling lightly, I do not. And if you are nonreligious, sac-religious, or any type of satanic/luciferian cult worshiper, just remember this:
My Family and I enjoy our simple lives. We have food to eat, a home to live in, and stable livelihoods working in the country. We are rich in the sense that our family is happy. I see 20 people on a daily basis that come to our orchards to pick fruit and berries, and they come from the city. They look unhappy and after a half an hour or an hour of picking whole grown, natural and unpesticided fruit they go on their way, their faces, eyes, and spirit brightened.
Why would one give up that way of life if it is so enjoyable to the spirit?
My family member gave that up, and its sad, the only thing that seems to keep him going is even more gambling, drinking, women, and vice- and thats just not right. He may have some money left over at the end of the day, but my point is simple, that doesn't matter. Do you understand that Flagpole?
