Tackling Problem Gambling From a Christian Perspective

Christians have often taken a hard-line on gambling and those with gambling addictions are seen as corrupted, immoral, and going against God. However, the bible doesn’t actually condemn gambling, nor does it really mention it. There are passages in the bible that warn against “the love of money” as there are passages warning against any “get rich quick schemes”. But these could be interpreted to mean pyramid schemes and people who work around the clock as much as gambling.

However, the issue that Christians have with gambling is less about the immorality of the act in itself, and more about the problems that it can cause. Gambling addiction is one of the most destructive, harmful things that can happen to a person. It causes a person to lie to their loved ones, to abuse drugs and alcohol, to commit treacherous acts and to generally harm those around them. The bible does warn against all of these things, but as Christians it’s important for us to help those with this problem instead of shunning them. FULL POST

How to Get Your Christian Book Published

If you’ve been given a message that you know you need to deliver, then one of the best ways to do is by publishing a book. There are a great number of books out there, across a range of subjects and genres. Christian books; those aimed at the faithful, are no exception. Unfortunately, there is often a huge difference between writing a book and getting it published. There are too many great books that go unpublished; messages that go unheard. Here’s a look at how to get your Christian book published.

Find an Agent

Many authors turn to agents in order to get their books published. An agent is a great way to go if you can find – and afford – one. The right agent will know all of the best Christian book publishers. It’s important to get a Christian book publisher because they will have access to the right market and be able to accept and sell you and your message. Some publishers might be unwilling to really share your message, and they might be turned off by the words “Christian book”. Find an agent who shares your faith, believes in you, and will be able to set you up with a publisher who will do the same. FULL POST

Success, Value and Your Circle of Influence

What is Success
Success is a term that determines your accomplishment to your aim or purpose. You set your goals you would want to achieve, work on them and finally get the results. A pass result is achieving success whereas a fail result is a failure. However, success is not just a determination of achieving end results, but it is about your hard work to achieve the end results. How you work on them defines your success. There are a number of factors that combine to shape your victory. The primary factors impacting success is your value and your circle of influence determining your success. In fact, one’s success lies in these factors. Let us first understand both the terms individually to make a conclusion on how these elements stay imperative to achieve success.

What is value
Value is the importance of something. It may be anything. You take a currency and determine its value worth how much you can get. A 1 dollar note has a value up to the amount you can buy from it. The 10-dollar note has a higher value as increased amount of stuff can be acquired. It’s not just the money that has a value, but it is your value that determines the worth of money. More the value you justify, more is what you deserve.
If you are a hard-working person, striving fairly towards your goals, have a positive attitude towards everything, then you presumably might be the most valuable person. An individual who owns a business builds the value of his firm through his unique value. Thus, it is imperative to find out your own worth to create a force in your business, in your earnings or at any step of your life. FULL POST

State Government Actions on Daily Fantasy Sports: A snapshot of where things stand for DFS ‘state by state’

Started off as a recreational activity, Fantasy sports have now been changed by big market players into a mass money making activity which is an expansion of gambling... as stated by state governments.

Over two dozen states are showing slow progress into the regulation of DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports), while some states have already considered it illegal. There were also some victories for the legalization of DFS industry in different states in 2016.

Robert Tomlinson, the State Senator for Pennsylvania advised the members of state ‘House of Representatives’ earlier this month, “not to rush into the matter. The formal legalization of the activity needs careful consideration about whether and how to do it.”

The primary concern of Tomlinson about DFS is to identify whether the activity is completely based on chance or skill. They doubt the business models of the two leading commercial operators of the industry “DraftKings and FanDuel”, who appear to merge into one company (according to recent press reports). He also highlighted that, such market dynamics may further deform the market and potentially decrease the revenue to be garnered by Commonwealth. FULL POST
