What does it tell us that Bible says: Love of money is root of all Evil?

Why do PEOPLE Worship MONEY Instead of GOD?
1 Timothy 6:10King James Version (KJV)

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.

Why do people worship money instead of God? If we depend on God for our needs He will provide them.

Example: I just saw on TV where they are charging farmers a membership fee of $100.00 and stall few of $50.00 before they sell their p.roduce to the public. This is not right the farmer works hard to raise his produce and then he would have to sell a lot before he makes any money.

Question: What are some the ways that we are unjustly taking money from our brothers and sisters? There are a lot of ways that are just not right.

Love and Money are the path to other sins such as greed, murder, gluttony

If there was no love or money or financial value to anything there would be no wars, no fighting, no greed

its very true if you think about it

Very True. And as best proof of fact that: "Love of money is root of all Evil" just look at USA and Trump that worship "Money" aka being "Billionaire", so much so that our current President is a "Wall Street Billionaire", aka the definition of "Love of money is root of all Evil" and as the ultimate proof of this:
1- Trump wants to build Wall between USA and our beautiful Southern neighbor
2- Cut all regulations on Wall Street
3- Just fired Missiles into Syria based on Bush lies
etc.

Because depending on God requires faith.

Hebrews 11:6, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

When you're doing financial well you tend to forget about God being the provider.

Deut. 8:17-18, "And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. 18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day."

You are considered successful in life (worldly success) based on your physical possessions. Humans tend to live in the here and now and don't strive nor understand treasure in heaven.

Matt. 6:19-21, "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."

Now that is the LOVE OF MONEY. But money spent and saved wisely is a blessing. We can help the needy, and live a good Christian life with a reasonable amount of money. But when greed and selfishness enter in money can be a curse to us. We should always remember that everything is God's and we are just using it while we live on his earth. All good things come from God and He is please to give to us if we love and trust in Him.

Love of money and people's ideas of how other people should live causes wars. Money fuels war machines and thus people are killed and wounded.

Just look at Donald Trump the Billionaire.
Or the fact that in USA 100-Million Plus People have no Healthcare or Healthcare they can afford, because the Billionaire class behind Big Health insurance and Big Pharma wants to make un-Godly amount of Money. While in Countries with Socialized Healthcare, which is all European Nations, Canada, and in fact all OECD Countries, they give Healthcare to all their People while they spend 50% less on Healthcare, because they have taken the "Love of Money" out of providing Healthcare.

I believe that what the bible is telling us is that money can be exploited as a good thing providing that we understand that it should be used to help others and not just ourselves, this way we should not be so consumed to think that we are so much better that others and loose humanity.

Boots61 You have a good answer. Money spent wisely to help our fellow man in need is the right way to go. But so many millionaires today do not do that, they give little if any of their wealth to the poor and thus they love their money and that is the root of all evil!

It is really silly to say that:
"Love money is root of all Evil.." since Money is also the root of all that is good too! After all:
1- It took Tons of Money to develop this Internet
2- It took Tons of Money to develop Air Travel
3- It took Tons of Money to develop the Bridges, Dams, Roads, etc. etc.

So what is True, is that Love of Money over fellow Man, in particular Love of Money as the expense of the Misery of your fellow Country Man, that is Evil. And indeed unfortunately so much of the life in USA has been based on this Super SCAM of Wall Street Billionaire Class on us since Regan "Love of Money" above all else is good, which is not.

I think you make the best point in this regard.
BRAVO. So I think what we can agree on is that "Money is not just good but necessary part of Human condition and growth, but too much Money is bad until it becomes Evil as in the case of People with Billions." Agreed?

If we have tons and spend it on helping people we are not loving the money. And a certain amount of money is necessary for us to live on these days. But if we hoard money and just spend it on ourselves for pleasure and keep it and not help out the poor with it then we are loving it. Some people go to bad ways to get money too like even killing people to collect their insurance, stealing, lying and cheating to get it and making money their God, ThinkDeep

But those things you have listed have destroyed and are still destroying society and the earth. Polluting the earth with planes, destroying the earth by replacing fields and tress and animals with tarmac and corrupting peoples minds with the internet.
None of this is a good thing

Man is destroying himself by destroying what things God has lovingly given him and he is doing it in many ways.
