Question: What is the root of all kinds of evil?

Answer: The LOVE of money.

I have heard it stated probably five times (at least) last month on some five different high-profile news and television programs that "money" is the root of all evil. Uhh, no. Timeout. Back up for a minute.

The bible says the LOVE of money is the root of all kinds of evil. (1 Timothy 6:10) I wish the braintrust at CNN, A&E, CNBC, and other networks would get that right. They always misquote the passage... and then they use their misquote to attack the church and the bible! What a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. They might learn something if they actually read the bible.
