Do you believe money is the root of all evil?

I asked a question if money were no object what is the one thing you would do to make your life better and more comfortable . I recieved an answer that said instead of looking to money you should turn to Jesus? Do you believe money is the root of all evil why or why not?

  • It's not money that is the root of all evil. It is the "love of money" that "is the root of all evil." "The love of money is the root of all evil." 1 Timothy 6:10

  • I agree with butterfly, it is the "love" if money that is the root of all evil. Anything that you love and put above everything else can be the root of evil in your life. You can have lots of money and still be the kindest and generous person there is. It is all in how you use it.

  • yes, i do,.....money is the main issue in my house that seems to be the reason why we all just can't get along. If we had money, and didn't have to pinch pennies I betcha' we'd be so much happier, even with each other. =[

  • I don't. It's people that are the root of evil. Just like guns don't kill people, PEOPLE kill people. It is more the love of the rush, or object that is the root of evil, not the actually object.

  • The Love OF money is the true root of evil. Not money itself.

  • No, because money is a human construct. I mean, the value of currency is completely arbitrary. It has value because we give it value. What's really the problem is greed. You can't blame a piece of paper or a lump of gold for the inherent flaws of man.
