More Information

Welcome to the Higher Stakes course to find freedom from gambling and betting of all kinds. The purpose of this course is to help you to be entirely free from gambling and betting, and to find the true joy and delight that comes from turning to Jesus Christ.

This course will teach you the truths, and help you apply them, which will inevitably free you from the powerful grip of gambling. The course is not designed as a "professional, therapeutic session" but rather was written by those who were, themselves, captive to gambling and who are now free indeed. You will read powerfully impacting and practical lessons, as well as gripping testimonies of the ruin and destruction of gambling and then full restoration in Christ.

There are higher stakes to consider than those used in gambling and betting. If you struggle with gambling and betting, either online or in casinos, please enroll in this course and come and find your freedom. The course is free of charge.

Two years ago I went through the “Higher Stakes” online course at Setting Captives Free and experienced the wonderful saving grace and power of the Holy Spirit! I have been free from my addiction since completing that course almost two years ago.—Mark K. Rockwell, Texas
