LOVE OF MONEY

 

Let’s get to the heart of the matter…

Which one of these statements would you consider a true statement?

A. Money is the root of all evil

B. The love of money is the root of all evil.

c. The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.

D. The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.

Now let’s be honest… Some of our choices will vary, and this is dependent on our interpretation of this statement and our life experiences. Wouldn’t you agree?

Also… we have people in our society who repetitively parrot, “You know money is the root of all evil J”

First things first…. In all our getting we must get understanding. So let us take a journey into The Book of Life.

1 Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (King James Bible)

Wisdom Key: ANY conversation,statement or sentence taken out of its original connotation (or meaning) will be misunderstood. If the conversation, statement or sentence is misunderstood then it will be applied incorrectly. We cannot afford to take a piece of one puzzle and attempt to put that same piece into a total different puzzle. That piece will not fit, AND this will cause us to cut corners. If we cut the corners off of The Blueprint our houses will be built incorrectly. THIS IS A DANGEROUS PRACTICE THAT HAS BEEN PERFECTED BY THE MAJORITY.

Understand this: The love of money statement (according to the bible) was given by Paul in reference to of all the evils before mentioned.

He stated, “But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts,which drown men in destruction and perdition. (King James Bible)

The ROOT

I believe the root of all evil is SELF. The Love of Self is the root of all evil. Without the overpowering stronghold of pleasing yourself (which is lust) the desire for an over-abundance of money is non-existence.  Self-will,self-ambition, self-righteous, self… self… self….  Causes a separation from The Lord… The Creator.

All we have to do is go back to the fall in Genesis to see how this episode plays out…

In saying that, “WE DECLARE AND DECREE THAT THE PEOPLE OF GOD WILL NOT SUBJECT THEMSELVES TO RE-RUNS OF THE FALL THAT TRANSPIRED IN THE GARDEN. WE DECREE LIFE OVER GOD’S PEOPLE. AMEN!

Let us not subscribe to re-runs of dysfunction.

So… In a desire despair of cloudiness we must ask ourselves,“Do I worship the creations or The Creator?

Let’s break this down and wrap this up!

  • Love of money – BFF (Best Friend Forever); Strive after as the goal of life; coveted; lust after; personal affection toward.
  • Root – Basic source, beginning, cause or origin
  • Evil – Inward fowl; flowing out of morally rotten character

My answer is:

D. The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.

You can locate this interpretation in various versions of the bible.

SELAH!

As a bonus: One of the keys to riches (in our natural lives) is FORGIVENESS. If a person is harboring unforgiveness then they probably have an over-abundance of material things around them which is known as whoredom. Whoredom functions as a distraction from the true-reality in Christ.
