Money isn't evil. It isn't the root of evil, either.
Some people claim that religion is evil or the cause of all the world's problems. They miss the point, too.
The real problem and source of evil in the world is ego. From ego springs all manner of bad motivation.
Ego thrives on self-righteousness and being right. Ego is the sense of entitlement in things. Ego is the source of the decision to suicide or to murder. Ego lusts and is proud. Ego is greedy, glutinous and lazy. Ego will act tired when one has performed an arduous task; it wants all to know of the hardship to elicit sympathy. Ego is a sponge of sympathy, but also a fountain of it. Ego is the victim and the perpetrator. Ego is the good Pharisee and the bad sociopath.
Money gives one a certain freedom and power. Ego loves these things. Without ego, money is merely a convenient tool, like a hammer or a spoon.
If a person could give up all their possessions and money, and yet create a Trillion dollar fortune, they may well not have any ego attached to their money. In that case, money could become quite good, even in a divine sense. Someone who can ask God for anything and get it, needs no money, but can have all the money in the world.
That's the difference between being at effect (ego; the problem) and being at cause (spiritual true self; the solution). Humility is the antidote to ego. Humility graciously accepts payment, but doesn't demand it, and never fears losing it.
