Actually, the Bible says, “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (I Timothy 6:10)
The answer is maybe.
Money is neutral. It is neither good nor evil. It simply is.
Money is a tool and, as such, can be good or evil. It is like a hammer. A hammer can be good and build a house or evil and kill someone. Money is the same.
But the Bible doesn’t say money is evil but the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
This is true. Greed can break up families and countries. It can kill people and destroy the inner happiness of a person.
But greed also drives entrepreneurs to create new goods and services for people to benefit from. It creates wealth in a society. Without greed, there is little progress.
So the key is to not fall in love with money to the point that it becomes all encompassing. Where it blinds you to the joy around you. Where it disrupts your inner stability.
Instead, think of money as a tool to achieve something else. It could be something like buy a fancy car. Perhaps your love of a fancy car will be the root of all kinds of evil but the money will have been reduced to a tool for you to get the car.
Or perhaps your money will buy you leisure time to really get in touch with your deep inner feelings and become the person you were meant to be. To be truly you.
