I read a blog post the other night stating that “money is the root of all evil.”

This was my response…

Funny you made a post saying that “money is the root of all evil” as I have a site encouraging people to create enough money to gain financial freedom.

If you want to boil down to what is the root of all evil, it is whatever that person wants.  If someone desperately wants to take first in figure skating  at the Olympics, they will do what it takes to get it, even try and break their opponents leg (if you know what I mean).  If you want to rule the world, well you will resort to inhumane acts.

Therefore, I would amend that common proverb to “personal desires is the root of all evil.”  Money just happens to be a popular desire.

What say you?
