Setting the record straight - Scott Brelin

This quote a été ajouté par swbrelin
It has been commonly said that money is the root of all evil. That is one of the most misquoted verses in the entire Bible. It does not say that. It says the love of money, not money itself, is a root of all evil. There is a big difference. That $20 bill in your pocket is not in and of itself evil. Without money we could not buy food and other necessities. But when money takes priority over decency, then there is a problem.

Umm, obviously?

They're a bad translation then. Saying the love of money is the root of ALL evil is so obviously false.

I'm sure rapists and lovers of torture do what they do because they love money, yeah? /sarcasm

@thesebones: That depends on which translation you read. The New Living Translation, King James Version, God's Word Translation and others have it "the root", others have it "a root", and I corrected the other mistake you pointed out.

It doesn't say THE root of ALL evil: it says A root of all kinds of evil. Huge difference.

Also, I'm pretty sure you meant to say "couldn't" in that second to last sentence.
