The Root of All Evil

The Root of All Evil
Distorted Series, Sep 3, 2017
Jim Hammond, Speaker

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.”
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭5:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”
‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6:17‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Focus: If you love money you will not be satisfied with more money because with more your appetite increases.

How to interpret scripture
Understand the CONTEXT
Interpret the BIBLE with the BIBLE
APPLY what you LEARN

The big theme is not MONEY but GODLINESS
CONTENTMENT (happy with what they have) makes a poor person rich and DISCONTENTMENT (unhappy with what they don't have) makes a rich person poor
Escape the CHOKE HOLD
