The Love of Money: a direct quote from 1 Timothy 6:10 KJV:
"For the love of money is the root of all evil:"

This famous verse from the King James Version is often misquoted as saying "Money is the root...", but the Apostle Paul is clearly talking about the love of money (greed).

Originally penned in Greek in the first century A.D, It has been better translated in English the ASV and NIV:
"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil."
Don't be so greedy! Remember, the love of money if the root of evil
