Re: Christians, is it a sin to be a professional poker player?

It’s certain that God has placed some of his people in poker.

What if the whole idea of sin is made up by religious fanatics from an era of ignorance and mythology?

In my opinion, ALL eras and cultures are ignorant and believers of myths of various kinds and to different degrees.

I think you ask a great question that deserves its own thread. If you open a new thread I will gladly engage the topic.

What if the whole idea of sin was made up by the Lord God Almighty and you're too blinded by the strong delusion to realize it?

Which of the gods .... the one they indoctrinate you in Sunday School about, by chance?? Not one of the other thousands of them, right?

Rather than derailing a thread that is specifically about the morality of poker playing, why don't you create a new thread?

Well true, he addressed Christians ... and I overlooked that at first. But I'm sorry, if the god isn't any more real than any of the other 10,000 ones, then that affects whether poker playing is immoral and a "sin."
