    No. Greed is the root of all evil.

    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?

    or work?

    or creativity?

    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..

    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
