Scripture texts: various                           Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland            Date: 25 January 2015 (Evening)

As the title suggests, this sermon considers the topic of gambling from a Christian perspective. After a brief statistical survey of the UK gambling scene the focus shifts in turn to the forms of gambling available, to the reasons why people gamble and to the spiritual, social and economic consequences of gambling. The sermon closes with proposed ways in which the temptation to gamble can be avoided or overcome.
