Love the title. Great lesson right on theme.

Ooo. Very good. This is a great example of the topic, and it's different from so many others. A very wise move on the church's part!

Perfect for the topic, and really strikes a nerve with me; we have a brand new casino just a few miles from here, and a LOT of Christians are going there, and don't see any problem with it. Grrrrr.

Well done, Allison!
You show so clearly how we often try to make excuses for our questionable associations.

I missed the significance of your title until the very end very clever. I agree with Jan; its good to see Christian writing tackling the moral corruption of gambling.
Nice writing and a good story for the topic. I felt kinda sorry for Buck, though. But I understand the church's viewpoint too. As always, Allison, great writing!
Magfificent job with the conflict dialogue and the telling of this man's heart. In all honesty you brought up excellent arguments for both sides. I think I know how I would have voted, but your writing gave me cause to consider why.
You were brave to tackle this topic. Way to go.

Right on point with a strong message. Well done.

Wonderful! I could see the logic of the arguments on both sides, and the extension of the theme that could be used to examine some of our own actions. What are we ok with that could speak volumes against us? Thought provoking and very well written.
