“Now we find out what it is” – a reader responds from heart and brain

by rthieme on October 10, 2008

Lovely, and congruent with perhaps the most
mis-quoted verse of all the New Testament, viz.,
1st Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is the root of all evil

which makes the critical distinction that it is
not money, but the love thereof, which is the sin,
and that such love begets consequent evil, as is
underscored by the many, many verses which remind
us, as does Exdous 20:5

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor
serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a
jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and
fourth [generation] of them that hate me;

that when the love of money supplants God as the
first and guiding love of our heart that that love
of money, just like terminally complexified
derivatives, wreaks damage not limited to the
sinner but to others innocent of that sin.
