Is Money EvilW.A. GarciaIII-RussellMoney is evil. That is a common misconception I noticed ever since I started asking people if it really is evil.When I asked why, they answered me that it is stated in the bible that money is the root of evil. That it kills people. That it is liable. It feeds crime. It is evil. But what we don’t know is that the Bible did not even saythat money is evil. It is the love for money. Here is what Timothy 6:10 says:” For the love for money is theroot of all kinds of evil. Some people, in their eagerness to get rich, have wandered away from the faith andcaused themselves a lot of pain”. (I
And so, again, the Bible did notsay that money is evil.If it is not money, what then? Greed. We all know this, and it is easy to say that greed is a sin. We all knowwhat greed is. We all know what money is. Of course, we use it everyday, and you can read both words froma dictionary if you just can’t figure it out. But in reality, we just don’t know when it is the object (money) or desire (greed) that brings us there. And even though you have a sure answer, you cannot deny a split –secondof hesitation.

This ‘money’ can never be the root of graft and corruption. And definitely, it doesn’t really bring us anywhere. For instance, one can buy food but not pleasure; one can pay for education, but notlearning. And so on and so fort. See, money is just a ‘thing’ that we value most. It is an object. A piece of  paper, coin, or whatever it might be in the future. Moreover, through the relentless efforts of man, money became power. Yes,Money is Power and Power is Might. Now with man holding money, it gives man asense of ability. Simply That he can buy anything he wishes with it. If you have 20 Php, what can you buy?100 Php? 1000? How about 1 Million? Hey, that’s a lot of money! And without proper budget, this person is
