"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.
