Money in it self is good, because you cannot function without money. But one can love money to much that they do the most evil thing to get it. Money will cause you to kill your brother, and hate your neighbour without a cause. It is very important not to love money too much. You should enjoy it in a sense where you can use it to help and to make your life better. But one should not go to the extreme that you kill someone just to get it, and that is where the world reach. They have the saying that I will step on whoever to get it. That consept is wrong and we must move away from that way of thinking

Thats what the "good book" says "that the root of all evil is the love of money".But,i beg to differ i think its the "lack of money that causes so much problems in the world today and selfish over inflated egos".

I dont think so and it is not the root of all evil thing.The root of all problems is how we use the money.Money is very important.With out it there is no honey or friends.Money is how we can afford all of our wants and needs that makes us happy.I think money can make me happy but not buy me happiness. Happiness cant be purchased at a store or online, but I'd definitely be happy if I was out of debt.

For me money means freedom. Before love money is the root of evil. Nowadays lack of money is the root of evil. The abuse of money and the greed are the root of all evil. Yup your right the money it self is good. Your feelings towards it that counts. Foe me, Greed and Vanity are fuels that make EVIL works.

Yes its a sad fact that people nowadays love money more than anything else.. but there is nothing one can do about that. if somebody decides that money is what matters to them then you just have to accept that. Like the Bible says.. where your treasure is, is where your heart is also..

Many people are getting blind because of money.. All they think that money rules this world.. I agree that money is importan to our lives but to worship money is worshiping satan.. I know many people here in our place who are so religious when they are having financial problems, but when they have that much money, they forget their God..
