Joe Mettle, a singer from Ghana, has offered his opinion on whether gambling is sinful or not.
Although betting is not specifically mentioned as a sin in the Bible, the award-winning gospel artist, Joe Mettle said that it is something that awakens the mind. Many Christians have openly criticized the act of gambling.
He made this known during a recent interview on the popular Ghanaian radio station, Hitz FM when he spoke to Andy Dosty.
In his submission, he said;
“If I am approached by a betting company for endorsement, it will be a firm ‘NO.’ As a gospel musician, you need to know where to draw the line.
If a betting company approaches me to sponsor my KADOSH tour, I won’t take it. No company will give you money without expecting anything in return.
I haven’t seen it in the Bible that betting is a sin but anything that triggers your mind when you are about to do something (especially when the deed isn’t stated in the Bible as sinful), but if Jesus is standing next to you, will you do it?”
