Most Christians know that playing poker is absoletly wrong. But what if we just play poker for fun? No one loses money if it is ok? The Bible says
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are bad for the holy people of God. ~ Ephesians 5:03 NIV
Perhaps God may seem like a spoilsport seem to be. But its purpose is always the best. If we are of our own pleasure and to see what we have manifested in the free poker games that we see some alarming factors. Contamination such as lying, greed, pride and selfishness are still front and center, even in a free poker game. If we practice sin for fun? Practice should be to another? Should practice each trick? But this is exactly what we do, even in a free poker game. Say that Poker is 100% skill, it is not always God's commandments. It's still cheating, lies, greed and lust.
But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and not provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
The meat is a word that simply desires of sin, our carnal nature. So we should not try Temptation of Christ never sought the temptation to show his power, and he avoided under all circumstances. When he tried to demonstrate the power of God over sin and Satan. We need to show that we trust God's promises also a step of faith and get rid of anything that might cause temptation. Online poker accounts should be closed, watching poker on TV should not be any form of temptation that we should have to be considered, we get rid of the control. Eliminate forms of temptation are statements of faith in God, saying, "Lord, I trust you to give me the win, as promised, here is my demonstration of confidence in you."
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.  If we. In the habit of playing poker in any way that we not only remove you who are evil, but we must also replace the bad habit with a good habit There are many positive things we can do instead (study, pray, share, spend time with friends or family, reading the Bible, training, helping others, they are not a few suggestions).
It could be a difficult task for us to give us a few sins. The reality can bring some sins like poker win banal. It might seem that you lose by giving up something that gives you money and extra power. Often it may seem that you are losing out on a performance that might be yours. However, the reality is that those who want to cling to this world actually benefit those to lose. The Jesus said ...
What use is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is obvious that we do nothing. Food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who fall into temptation and want to get rich cords, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil, which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves with many griefs.
The reality, in the past, but now we seem to be rather confused to on the basis of the word of God. We are both in the past playing poker guilty to cheat others, lies, theft and greed. The book I gave you a while back right way to Christ said that ...
"The more you come to Jesus, the more faulty you will appear in your own eyes. For your vision will be clearer, and your imperfections will be seen in broad and distinct contrast to His perfect nature"
When faced with the truth of God in the face of the perfect life of Jesus, we see how much we need him. Habits can be hard to break. We know that God's desire is to completely abandon the poker game for us, and it may seem like a big request to be. But is it really too much to ask, compared to what Jesus has done for us? I invite you to turn the book of Romans 8:12-14, he said ...
Therefore, brethren, we are committed, but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die, but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God, the Son of God.
I have a mortgage. My whole house has already been paid, every penny of it. I'm just a liability to the party that paid for my house. So I have an obligation to pay this debt. Romans chapter 8 verse 12 says we have an obligation. But this debt is not an activity of a financial nature. This debt is much deeper. He was not paid with dollars, but with a little better, with the blood of God's only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus said, Greater love has no one than this, than lays down his life for his friends.
