Is money really the root of all evil?

Posted by The New N Used Link Team on Friday, April 5, 2013

Almost everyday i hear people say that money aka mula, dead presidents, paper,cream etc is the root of all evil, when you examine things more closely, you’ll see that it is not money that really leads to evil. In my opinion, it is the lust for money, and for what it can buy, that causes this entire ruckus. Greed might be one of the biggest flaws of the human race. We are never satisfied. We always want more. This might have been born by centuries of struggling to survive. Whoever has the most gets the most. You’d think that humans would have gotten over this after all the things that we as a population have gone through. People kill for money because people have an insatiable lust for it. The Bible reference from which this idea is derived clearly states that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil not that money itself is the root of all evil. I think is was in first Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money placed before the love of God is the root of all kinds of evil.” So in other words if you place the love of money before the love of God you are doing wrong. God is not against money but God is against the worship of money for it is a sin therefore money love is the root of all kinds of evil. If you place the love of money before the love of God you are doing wrong. We have no right to say that money is evil for money can also be used for good as well. With the majority of the Earth’s population living in poverty we could use money to provide humanitarian aid.I could talk all day about this topic but i'll let you all think about it.

Just to quote a rapper - Rick Ross "being dead broke is the root of all evil"
