Money makes the world go round. Without money you die. This is what money can do into our lives. Well money also makes people bad. They think that if they have lots of money they can control everything. Money is not the answer for world peace instead we must unite. People don't have money will effect to evil doings. From thousand years ago money/gold is root of evil. This is only in my own opinion. How about you?
Money...money...money...makes someone crazy..
Dont throw your money instead make it a valuable..
I have heard this many places before, apparently when this passage was translated into English, it was not translated quite correctly. Many modern translations state that the love of money is A root of evil. Another translation is that the love of things or covetousness is the root of all evil. You can see most of the main stream translations at http://bible.cc/1_timothy/6-10.htm. You can also read some commentary on the subject at http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/CBNTeachi.../FAQ_money.aspx. I do not mean to make this a purely Christian discussion but the original saying comes from the Bible and I am trying to keep it in the same context.
Wars are made because of territories, religions and even leaders' thought and not for money. They are like a bonus.
Then more money you have then more happy you are. It's a fact that people without money aren't happy. They can't buy thing they need for normal life. They often have bad relations with wife, son, doter, and that's because of lack of money.
Look at people who have a lot of money, they have everything they need and in time, they don't need to plan when by a new car, their wife or husban happy because they now that the net day will come and they'll able to pay for bills and food.
The root of eveil, for me, are people who have no enough money and they start wars, they kill people (for money again) and they have everything arround them.
For You Is Money The Root Of All Evil?
The William Tyndale translation is the only version that gets this one, and truly translates it, you can get a copy from efaith.Com.Au, the right translation is the love of covetousness is the root of all evil, Satan coveted Gods Throne, eve before money coveted the forbidden fruit etc. (The New Testament by William Tyndale, edited by David Daniell to modern text) (The Tyndale old testament is also available) these are the most amazing and easy to read translations of the bible, Tyndales English translation said to be better the all 3000 other English texts his greek and Hebrew surpass all translations to date ( amazing or a gift of God) I would say the latter but you decide.

Money is not the root of all evil. Human beings are. By nature human beings are insecure. And because of their sense of insecurity they hoard( aquire). This is the true reason for all the strife in the world.
Money is only a tool of exchange, invented by man. It only represents a product. Since the products are too gross to be hoarded and stocked, man invented the tool called money,which can buy all that he desires.
It can be used for greed, stock it all up in 1% of the population and let 99% be poor, to buy weapons to wage war or make people jump whenever you tell them to.
But it could also be used to feed 100% of the people, invest it in a better world, better healthcare and research/build a more eco friendly society.
I can't vote in this lol, as it's used for evil, but can be used for good as well if people wanted to.
You help me building my house, I help you taking care of your garden and your animals. This was easier while giving work against money. Lazy people have less money and have to work harder if they want to get enough food.
Of course, as in most of generalized systems, a lot of deviances come on top of this, and some people have a lot money while doing absolutely no work.
The real problem is not money, the real problem is he human nature.
If the system were based on apples or pieces or bread, the problem would probably turn being exactly the same.
Of course, this text is only a piece of philosophical thinking, there is no easy way to check if suppressing money will make people in a given land feel really better.
Also all those loans seems to be good, but also bad!
