money itself is not bad but it is how you use it and for what. in other words you control it but wisely. How you spend ,what you spend it on etc. In this times we all need it and surounds all our needs in a way.

The bible says, "THE LOVE of money is the root of all evil". Notice the first 2 words. Money in itself is not a bad thing, as a matter of fact it's great if you have money. What's bad is if you start to love your money, meaning, if you start of thinking money all the time. If you love something too much (especially if you love something you are not supposed to love) you tend to do things different from what you would normally do, and most of the times, these are the bad things. Example: You are a politician, you love money so much that you make schemes to steal from the local funds. That is what's bad about it, too much love of something can manipulate us to make wrong decisions, and in effect we make evil actions.

I think it is obviously. I can't also imagine a world without it into bargain. Many are willing to sacrifice anything just to be affluent.
