Can Christians Play Mah-Jong?


Mah-Jong is a Chinese game consists of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. Mah-Jong is often played as a gambling game. Christians should not play Mahjong even if it is just for fun. This is because the game consists representational characters that are pagan and idolatry. The devil likes to use this type of game to make people become addicted to gambling so that they become trapped in serious debt. As Christians, you should not play Mah-Jong as it is not a good role model. If someone sees you play Mah-Jong, he would automatically think that it is approved and he will play it too. Christians are to use their time to build up their relationships with God, not wasting time on things that won’t edify your Christian walk.
