Money is not the root of all evil. Money is a tool that can be used for good or for bad. In the right hands it is powerful enough to change worlds for the better. It is each and every persons responsibility to use it for the good of others. You can give it to charities or go out and do charity yourself. in the end it is up to you how you use it and how you attract it. Right now I use it to feed my family and make sure they are safe and warm at night. One day when I have more I will use it to make sure others have the same luxury. This day cannot come soon enough.

I will not agree because money of itself does not constitute evil. One can do evil because of it but it would have to be precipitated by an evil thought in the mind. Money is just the innocent victim there. Cheers!!

Money is a tool of the economy a medium of exchange.... so things do not have to be bartered. What is evil is greedy people. Why are some people greedy it lies in personality and circumstance....... The circumstance part can be that a person was poor and suffered, so they are afraid when they get money they will loose it and become poor..... so they always want more and in getting it will hurt other people this is the evil part. Some people have personalities that are driven to succeed at any cost.....Money is a measure of that success and when it gets out of hand things can go bad. Poverty can cause people to do evil things in obtaining money to survive. Bottom line it is a evil dog eat dog world... every living creature wants to live the lives of another in some fashion including humans who are no different then any other creature trying to survive. So i feel that money is not the root of all evil ..coz if money was not there there would always be something else that would take the place of the value of money....

I don't agree that money is the root of all evil. It is the love for money. When people became greedy and think money as a god that the problem starts and became the root of evil.

Well yes somehow, but still their is always an exemption to the rule I guess. Its just how you handle your money. Like helping those unfortunate, or even sharing your blessings to other people. Have a nice day! God bless!

No, money is not the root of evil. Money cannot buy happiness too. It's the people that makes the money evil. People alone can make evil things even without money. Money is just being used by people as an instrument to do evil or bad things.

Yes, money is the root of all evil, but sadly, we all have to life off of it. If we want to live in normal society, we have to have money. If I ever had a lot of money, I would donate some of it to finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, finding a cure for Asthma and Allergies, and to new research for Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. I would invest some of it in a hobby shop and storage lots, so that that way I could buy my own house and save up money to send my children to college.

I guess that is just a belief system that is so untrue. Money is a very neutral object that can never dictate what you are supposed to do with it. It is human that holds what they want to do with it. So if you would analyze things its not money that causes but human intentions are the root cause, because money will be there be it for good or bad.

It is not money that is the root of all evil. It is the love of money that is the root of all evil. When people place a higher value on their money than they do on anything else it breeds evil. they become obsessed with what the money can do for their own self instead of how they can help others. Many place money or their perceived need for it above their own family. they will do whatever they can to obtain more money. There are those whoever who have a great deal of money and use it to help others. I could name countless people in this category. It is not the money itself but an individuals use of the money they have and their personal obsession with it that is evil or not evil. Personally I would and do use the money I have to do as much good as I can for others. I do not have much right now but when I did I spent it on others needs first. If I were rich I would probably go into the mission field right here in America because we have a lot of people in need right here.

Nope, i don't agreed with it, but i'm agree with the opposite, it depends on how you use your money for ... for goods or for bad ... it is the same meaning with "knife" is it used by a killer or by a chef
