Misquoted Bible verses

"God helps those who help themselves". Not in the Bible.

But my favorite, and the one that does the most damage is:

"Money is the root of all evil" This is a line from the O'Jay's song "For the Love of Money". Which is closer to the actual quote in the book of Timothy when Paul says to Timothy, "The LOVE of money is the root of several evils"

If you read this is context, it means that once you esteem money more than your spouse children or other family members, you lose perspective on money. Paul was telling Timothy, not to let his head get carried off by the lust of money.

Unlike the misquote, "money is the root of all evil" this is just simply an irresponsible lie. Money is like Oxygen. You need it to survive in our culture. Money is essential to live a fulfilled life. To quote Wallace Wattles, the author of the book "The science of getting rich" He said: "Pathetic is the man that does not strive to be wealthy".

If you can't support yourself, what good can you do for society.

My new song is starting to get controversial. It's called "Nothin wrong with Money"
It'll be out by early Fall.

Ace out.......
