Is the Love for Money, the Root of All Evils?

Would you marry for love or for money?

Is love for money really the roots of all evils. Well, if you read several versions of the Bible, it is probably correct. But in my opinion it is not really true, if this love for money is not an obsession or an addiction. Without love of money, there will be no successful business men and women in this world. You can be religious but still love money to insure a comfortable life. An example will be the Romney's. They are devout Mormons, rich, and have lots of money, but definitely not evil unless you are a fanatic member of the democratic party. Another example are the Trumps and the Kennedy Family. The following are ten quotes from several versions of the bible on this subject.

1.For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
New Living Translation (©2007)

2. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.
English Standard Version (©2001)
