or a form of it, the Lottery, are poor use of assets and violate basic stewardship princi- ples. Each person is to "Bear his own burden," Gal 6:5, to "eat his own bread", 2 Thes 3:12, and to "work with his own hands." 1 Thes 4:11. We are warned "to take heed of covetousness." Luke 12:15. Gambling violates these Biblical principles, resulting in personal destruction and poverty of many as well as the corruption of politicians and our society. Referendums on the legalization of drugs, prostitution, or anything else that is evil, such as Gambling or the Lottery are not necessary. Legalizing the lottery and gambling would create an anti-Christian culuture.
