No the love of money is not the root of all evil, if that was the case, people wouldnt kill another to get someone's lover or out of jealous. that argument is moot.

It's sort of like the lord of the rings, the ring itself isn't the root , it's that access to money gives you access to power and most people become corrupt when given access to to much power.

The Bible verse is actually partly 'the love of money is the root of all evil'. I think that's much more accurate.

"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."

I believe money provides freedom unless you spend more than you have. Debt might be the root of all evil but then again with mortgage rates at 2 percent, you almost can't afford not to take out a loan.

I believe money provides freedom to those who have access to it and can be disciplined. But Majority of people are undisciplined and really money is just a vehicle used to get them to another location, fame, power, ultra access, status..

The Mercantile aim is to own the Reserve Currency of the World.

A short time ago the USA took us off Gold as our Reserve Currency, and replaced it with the US dollar. So the US dollar is not backed by gold, but by the price of oil paid for in US dollars.

The Reserve Bank of China has said it wishes to replace the US dollar with the Chinese Renminbi as the Reserve Currency of the World.

This is a serious conflict, serious enough to go to war.
