Since I've been in Kentucky now for 6 years, and since this weekend is the Kentucky Derby, I couldn't help but write a short piece on this event. So, first some Derby Facts and then a question for you to ponder ... - The Kentucky Derby has been run on the first Saturday in May since 1875.
- The most famous Kentucky Derby winner, Secretariet, is the only horse to break the 2 minute mark.
- More people bet on the Kentucky Derby than the Super Bowl.
As I think about how many people are placing bets and gambling on their favorite horses, I couldn't help ask the question, "Is it ever okay for a Christian to gamble, place a bet, or make a friendly wager?" What do you think?
