    No, lots of evil comes from Hallucinations and Paranoia.

    Nope, it's the love of money that's the root of all evil if memory serves me correctly.

    It's the "Love of money" that is the root of all evil.

    money can also be the best way to do good deeds, it all depends on what you do with it.

    =money isn't evil, people are=

    If the majority say it is, will you stop trying to make money altogether?

    I would argue that LACK of money is the root of all evil.

    St. Paul's point was to illustrate that one's primary love ought to be God...though fanaticism is dangerous, no matter what the object of one's desire. I have advanced degrees and professional experience in both finance and theology and I can say that the two are strange bedfellows, but are not necessarily enemies. Anyway, as a point of general interest, I'm reading a good book now by Nial Ferguson called 'The Ascent of Money' about the history of money...highly recommended.

    Money is not the root of all evil but it sure can solve a lot of problems NOT having money causes. :p
