Watson Kingson's comment on 2015-06-01 12:49:10:

money is not evil but "the love of money is evil " money can 't give holy spirit but it can put you in the presence of the holy spirit,it can 't give you the gospel but it can put you in the place of where there is the gospel. you can move or travel with an airplane if you have money till you reach to the place of aboudance where they are teachings of life christ money answers all things in Jesus name amen

is true that money play a major role in life,but not all happiness depends on money.

This verse highlights that what belongs to the world we should give to it and what belongs to God we should give to God... Ref. Matthew 27:24-27

Money must luv us,not us Luv money but we must remember that be poor is not on God will.When you read the bible many they were having farm,cow including Jesus was having present of gold when was born.Bible say treasure is hidden in Christ so we must luv Christ and we will have money.

I totally agree, money is very important, but it is not the most important thing.


Christian Cults's comment on 2015-01-15 20:22:23:

People without money are not recognized in the house of the lord? That is like saying you must buy your way in. Surely the Lord favors the innocent and poor over the rich and guilty. Your statement saddens me.


Rev. Tim George's comment on 2015-01-07 05:04:09:

A little wine is good for the heart, and money when it is used wisely will solve many problems. However, if you live to feast on wine, and Love money, you will find yourself at the root of all evil.

I think this verse let 's us know money is essential to our daily lives, but not to take the place of Jesus in our lives.


Cobby's comment on 2014-09-21 01:16:08:

oh yes this verse talks seriously,people shouldn't misuse it because it takes the Spirit of the Lord to contemplate,to earn money by the work of our hands is perfect but the to be so desperate for money is evil in that u putting the Love of God for the Love of money,,but in everything God first.


Abel Emmanuel's comment on 2014-07-05 09:36:25:

Money is part of life, money is inpact to life.


Shay's comment on 2014-05-17 10:34:09:

Prefacing that I 'm not 2nd guessing King Solomon 's wisdom, I contemplate 10 19 as a part of the whole Ecclesiastes. It seems that the preacher looks at our short lives realistically and gives some sound and wise advice.


JAMES V JACKSON II's comment on 2014-01-15 23:30:00:

Yes! Nothing wrong with money. However for the "love" of money is the root of all evil read it all...


Gary's comment on 2013-11-24 05:41:22:

When i came across this verse some years ago i was very surprised and it was an awakening but be very careful how you take this verse in becuse it is powerfui


UNCLE LG's comment on 2013-11-18 02:46:03:

money is essential but not a priority. Man needs money in all his endeavour but should not kill nor suppress another one for money sake. Remember it is essential and also root of all evil. Mean while it keeps the world moving. Lg


Kusi's comment on 2013-10-25 03:20:56:

Gods word is perfect. money is mostly needed for all life activities especially in our world of today if you don't have money you are not recognised even in the house of the lord..


NWAKO S O's comment on 2013-09-12 15:35:50:

The church of God needs money to carry out the work of God, however christianS should not love money absolutely. They should be working to gather money to use it only in things that edify God and not for a show of wealth or riches.The word of God in the bible is perfect and time tasted and cannot be challenged by mortal man.
