Is it true that "Money is the root of all evil"
17 Oct 06
It is not necessarily the root of all evil but some people will do anything for money which is where the term comes from as far as I know. I think that fortunately today there are more people who consider that love, friendship, harmony, inner peace, serenity, trust and honesty are better to have than any amount of money. :)

No, money is certainly not the root of all evil. The correct quote is "The love of money is the root of all evil", but despite the fact that this is a cause of much evil it cannot be classed as responsible for all. There are other vices such as avarice and lust that cause just as many problems and make people behave in ways that they would not do otherwise.
