Exactly. The whole "money is the root of all evil" is a gross distirtion of the words of our Christ. It's when people fall in love with money, that greed and corruption set in. That kind of mindset topples nations, causes impoverishment of peoples, and corrodes democratic-republican government. Which is why the Christ had said "The love of money is a root to all kinds of evil" (when properly translated from His original aramaic).
And yes, BlackInk, I really love how smart we all sound. That's why I love forums and discussions like these. We should always try to use our intelligence!
