I respect and appreciate whatever religion, spiritual faith, or philosophy that helps a person to find meaning or serenity in life. Recently, I took an elderly person to their church, as they were too feeble to attend by themselves. While I would never jump up to interrupt a service in anybody’s church, it was difficult to restrain myself when the minister said “the love of money is the root of all evil.” Apparently, the minister never met an Alpha male.
Some people covet power more than money. To these people, money is just another type of power. From the bully on the playground to the bully in the White House, imposing their will on others is their reason for living and is a co-equal root of all evil, at the very least.
Now, can you see any minister saying “the love of power is the root of all evil?”
