The love of money is the root of all evil, but if money is used in the correct way , it can be a blessing to someone.

"The Love Of Money Is The Root Of All Evil"

1 Timothy chapter 6 - 10 : For the love of money is the root of all evil; which while some covet after, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Money is important in our society, there's no way to live without it. Money makes the world go around, and we need it to survive. Money is a necessity, but it can be a detriment to us if we, aren't using it in the right ways. I guess that's why the bible says the love of money is the root of all evil. Money is like a drug or an addiction to some people, but we have to able to control it; and not the other way around.


The evilness of money has caused some of us to steal, rob and cheat to obtain it. The worse part of it, is it has caused some us to kidnap and murder one another to obtain it. Some of us don't care how we get it as long as; we have it in our possession. Money in itself isn't evil, it's when man start to think up evil ways to obtain it, that becomes evil in the eyes of God. The old folks use to say, if you don't work,you will steal. There are many scavengers out there trying to find ways to relieve us of our money any way that they can.

There are people that has thought up so many ways of defrauding the public, stealing, identity theft, scams, trickery, black mail: what ever works; just as long as they can get possession of our money. These same people have no part of God in them or they would do such atrocious crimes. I just had an incident with my bank, when someone used my information to defraud money from my account.; and caused me money, plus over draft fees. We shouldn't be paying for these conspiracies. Money can be evil, if we use it in a evil manner: rather than the purpose it suppose to be use for. Money can be a blessing, if it's use to help others; in services and in care.

Even the beggars on the street love money. Jesus and us saints don't have the sin of greed anymore that's necessary to go out and make a living. God performs miracles to supply our needs. This is called the 7th day rest in the Lord. A sinner can't love God and money. They either love money or the they love God.

Thank you for your viist and your comment xiomara, but I disagree with your logic, money is needed but it cannot buy happiness and it's not the answer to every solution. Do you ever wonder why the rich and famous,have money to burn, but it seems they aren't ever happy. This hub is strictkly written in the biblical stand point, because the bible says these things about money; not because I said it. This is Gods word, not mines. we should'nt put all our hopes in money or riches, sure they help, but it doesn't solve all of lifes problem. I am aware that you have your opinion. Godspeed. creativeone59


xiomara 6 years ago

I personally think that money is the solution of everything. There nothing in this world, in this life that can't be resolved without money, most important HAPPINESS!

The love of money can destroy lives, and relationships. "Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Hebrews 13:5

Thanks creativeone59. You're so right! The love of money is idolatry and as such pushes the love of God to the side. I pray we learn to put God first for he knows our needs and promises to fulfill them all. When I worry about money, which most of us do, Luke 12:22-31 reminds me why I don't need to

That is right!We can not live for money meanwhile we can not live without money. The critical point is that how you treat money and how you spent money in a wise way every day-----God's guidance is helpful.

The lack of money is caused by love of money.

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom...” (Luke 6:38 AV)

Love money, don't give it away and nobody gives it to you.


Genesis 1:1 6 years ago

"Money can be evil, if we use it in an evil manner."

No. Money, being inanimate is never either good nor evil. As with guns or knives.

Read what it says, it's simple enough.

For THE LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

I have discovered a law of life..

You'll never get the thing that you want desperately ..

So if you want money aim for something else like excellence in what you do and you'll get the money rolling.....

I agree. I used to hear people misquote and say money is the root of evil or even that money is evil.

I like the NASB version of 1 Timothy 6:10, "For the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." The love of money is not the root of ALL evil. But the root of ALL SORTS of evil. If you think about it, pride is the real problem. It is pride that says, "I deserve this," or, "I want this, and it will be mine." Pride says, "I am greater than you," when the reality is that we are worthless without Christ. Pride gives birth to greed (amongst other malicious character traits), and greed produces the love of money. Which is idolatry.

except that you cannot use "love of money" to explain the psychology of serial killer.

Thank for your comment, God is in everyone, if you have received Christ and has been baptist by the holy spirit. There are people in this world that 's not of God, but of satan that do things that's not of God. It's true that God created us all, but we have choices and these choices sometimes, don't include the goodness of God but of satan. Thank you for your input. creativeone59

So true, so true. I appreciate that you brought out that money is a necessity, however it is due to the love of trying to aquire more and more that traps people into doing things they might not have ever thought they would do. You've reached your 100th hub, Congrats!
