Do you think money is the root of all evil?

Or do you think there is something else, that makes us do evil things. I think other than money, 'greed' is also a great catalyst as far as evil is concerned. What do you think?

No,I don't think that money is the only cause of all evil.in fact,I find money a necessary thing in life but yes, if you think that money is everything and jump in getting the money from any source, by any way, at any cost, then it becomes an evil.Envious feelings, jealousy,hatred and greediness also are responsible for the evil.

I do believe this that money is the root of all evils. But money is the plea, main thing are the greed, over ambition, desire for power etc. All these things comes to exposure through the games and dramas of money.

I think that it can be if people let it control their every motive. I think that the need for money is great but I think that by letting things that are material overpower what is true and important, it can be evil.

Our love for material things make us do terrible things. You are right in that respect. I guess money is one of the most important material things in the world, don't you agree?
