I think money is required for a stable economy. Without some sort of currency everything would just go to hell. A friend brought this up to me and I have to disagree.

I believe that money is not evil money is just used for shops

No. No-one should be ashamed of wanting to be rich or make aload of money.

Money can be both impartial or biased. It is made one of two ways after printing. Therefore the root of all evil in money comes from all forces which direct impartiality to biased prejudice by use of open interpenetration and not basic principle and precedent.

The Gold Standard proved itself to be biased and thus can be capably held by the impartial side of money. Not Vice-Vera.

I would agree with creationtruth, that it is only the love of money, not money itself. And I also believe the Bible meant more by "the love of money" than what is commonly interpreted. The love of money is essentially coveting (which I would argue is the root of all sin). I saying this because coveting is essentially wanting something more than"and in place of"God. Coveting, therefore, breaks not only the tenth commandment but also the first: "God should be FIRST in your life," and also the second which talks about idolatry (since coveting is wanting something before God and putting that thing first in your life). Basically, "the love of money" is coveting which is idolatry which is the very premise of sin.

No money is an inanimate object. The love of money however is a different story.
