Why shouldn't I gamble?

Yes, why shouldn't I? For just a little outlay I might reap big returns.

From the Christian Science point of view, is gambling wrong? Yes, because it is not in accord with God's law, the divine will. One who gambles relies on chance, luck, a "happy" accident for good. God requires us to look to Him, unerring, unchanging Principle, as not only the creator and controller of man and the universe but the supplier of all good. The God who is Love provides enough good for all His creation, which is spiritual. And one who realizes this can prove it—prove that even in this present existence there is no need for some to lose so that others may gain.
