Testimonies – Tsang

Category:Testimonies

KK: Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 

(II Peter 1:4)

“From childhood to middle age, gambling was my life. I ran into huge debts and my family disowned me, and yet the lure of gambling was still irresistible. I was so desperate that I wanted to end my life. By chance I heard about the Christian Centre for Gambling Rehabilitation, and approached it for help. With the compassionate help of the staff there, I accepted the salvation freely given by God. Although at first I had relapsed, yet with God’s promise of forgiveness, I have repented. Now I no longer gamble, and my relationship with my family has improved tremendously.”

Testimonial – Lee

Category:Testimonies
Li: Sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything. (II Corinthians 6:10)

“People say, ‘If your business is failing, go gambling’. But I have found that when you are heavily in debt, friends fall away and life becomes meaningless. I am now over 80. I stopped gambling when I became a Christian three years ago, and have been trying to repay my debts. But my debts are enormous. My payments barely cover the interest, and it looks as though I shall be living with my debts for the rest of my life. However, I know that I have to bear the consequences of my past misdeeds. I now have peace in my heart, and I am happy even though I am poor.”

Testimonies – Wong

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10) 
“I became a compulsive gambler after I came to England. I could not stop gambling. I went to the casino after work every day, and did not go home until 3 or 4 am. I could think of nothing but gambling, and gambled away even the money my friends loaned to me for my business. But after I believed in Christ, I was changed completely. I know the meaning of life, and know what it is to live an abundant life. Now I even use my past to help those who are trapped in their gambling.”

Testimonies – Tse

Category:Testimonies

Tse: No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37)

“I have a fairly good life in the UK. My husband works hard in his business. My young children are lovely. When I finish my housework, I used to go to the casino to have fun. It was OK at first. Even when I lost money, my husband did not complain. I knew that I shouldn’t, but when I itched to gamble and friends called, I went to the casino again. Many times when I tried to win back what I had lost, I did not go home until the early hours of the morning. My husband was angry, I quarrelled with him so fiercely that it frightened my children. Although I felt guilty about it, I did not give up gambling. It was only when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour that I could amend my ways, love my family, and say ‘No’ to gambling. Now my whole family is full of joy and laughter. Even my friends say that they want to know my Jesus!”

Newsletter (August 2018)

Category:Activities,Newsletter

感謝神!我們與其他反對賭博機構,經過多年來的抗議和遊說,英國政府終於在今年五月公佈了新規定,把「固定賠率博彩機」(FOBT)的最大投注額,每局從一百鎊減到兩英鎊。

這些被稱為「賭博可卡因」的博彩機,它可以讓賭徒在20秒內輸掉100英鎊,並且非常容易上癮。這些新型的博彩機的營業額佔了英國各地的投注站的總收入的一半以上。根據戒賭中心的統計,近年來,到中心求助的賭博人士中,有百分之七十以上人,都染上了這種博彩機的癮。

雖然,這個新規定將造成賭業的收入和政府從賭業而來的稅收大幅下降,但此舉卻減少賭博對賭徒與他們家庭的傷害,以至對社會的深層禍害。要是從社會代價的角度來計算,我們認為還是很值得的。福音戒賭中心除了幫助人戒賭,協助受賭博影響家庭,和處理因賭帶來的種種問題以外,向華人社區宣傳賭博禍害,教育社群向賭說“不”,防止更多人因染上賭癮而受害,也是本中心的宗旨。
