Is money the root of all evil?
it depends. Since I dont have any to speak of I could use some...you got any that's stressing you out and you want to get rid of?
No. Greed is the root of all evil.
LOL...No having money doesn't stress me out...not having money stresses me out...
Root of all evil................ is a figure of speech denoting something
that causes all wickedness or suffering. By extension, it may be applied
to any cause of serious problems.
"For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil,"
Money is the source that bring wickiness and evil thoughts of dirty deeds
meanful mindset and destruction even betrayal to gain , where there is money
there is doubt and danger lurking .
Money we all need to live by and survive from , yet we use this paper to destroy
we seek this paper in greed which is evil and when it's time to gain we will use any
means to get it with evil thoughts and selfishness.
Probably. As long as money is controlled and manipulated by a few who decide when and where it gets dropped, then it poses a problem. People would be better off bartering with each other in order to take back control of their own lives and cease begging and doing absolutely anything to get money.
The Jews see money as a sacred tool.
How does one view life?
The way one views a thing is how that thing will relate to a person
Yes. It is the ultimate divider. the same 20 dollar bill can be food for me..
or medication for you.. or tithes for him.. or transportation for her.. or
power for him.. Money is an abstraction for too many things.. a husband
and wife can argue over what to do with $20.. she may want to spend it on
some a new hat while he wants to spend it on a steak. and because money
is an abstraction, it is both the new hat and the steak.. and thats why it
is a divider.. it pits each persons wants and needs against others wants
and needs.. if that abstraction was replaced with a steak, their would be
no question or argument about what to do with it. Money systems manipulate
human emotion.. That's why game shows are so popular.. it's about what
each person could do if they won that money.. it's a religion. It's worshiped
and valued higher than human life.. an abstraction is valued higher than human
life.. that seems to me to be the misapplication of mathematical concepts..
but I guess that can happen when you steal them instead of conceive them..
i'll let you know when i get some...
money is a tool, plain and simple
If we view it as such then that is what it will be for us
and if we view it as evil then that is what it will be
