Is money the root of all evil? No, in this article I will explain about this perverted version of the true word of God. Having great wealth is not the evil, and money is not the root of all evil.
1 Timothy 6:10;"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." As we can see here, it is the 'love' of money that is 'a' root of all kinds of evil. The phrase, "Money is the root of all evil." is devil's doctrine. It was meant to cause strife, war, suffering and pain between people who have money, and people who are poor. It was used to cause the poor to blame the rich for their financial suffering. It was used to cause the rich to become prejudice against the poor. Satan stole, killed, and destroyed people with this false doctrine that he seeded into man.
Having money is not evil, but having the love of money is evil. We have to put our full trust in God, we have to depend on God for all of our needs. When we put our trust in money, we are guilty of idol worship. This makes God angry. Set your heart on the things that are above, not beneath. Set your heart on God's word, not of the pleasures of the flesh. When we acquire the kingdom of God, when we inheirate heaven, all the other things will be added onto us.
