If money is the root of all evil.

Then why do so many religious people worship money?

Or is it that religion is the root of all evil.

So Oral Roberts, Jim and Tammy, Jimmy Swaggart et al, are just doing the faithful a favor by taking all that evil cash and the attendant sin away from the flock? Selflessly jumping on that hand grenade of sin, as it were. Who knew?

As I wondered, if God could exist, this was all, I achieved, a bad labor situation that God Itself meanwhile offered me no right, whatsoever that I could rely on to be any big case of mine. If that money ideal can still & meanwhile exist, anything, I respect, is 'just' a symbol & a repetition of my relevant fact that I meanwhile & most certainly do well to 'testify(!)' to being happy to exist as a righteous man, a righteousness that after all means
quite a lot to me, because of the fact that God can exist as No Truer <-> Happiness that Its 'Hobby,' that money ideal that I must just mention to You All, so I can find out & so on, greetings, a Danish Security guard functionary,'J.A.,' Chile, [email protected]

If money is the root of all evil then the Catholic Church is one of the most evil organisations on the face of the planet. However we all know this isn't tru.... oh wait yes it is.
Carry on.
