Singer Songwriters And The Root Of All Evil — 2 Comments

  1. I believe the verse actually says, “Money is the root of all kinds of evil,” which is a different meaning than, “all evil.” 1 Timothy 6:10. ;- )

    At any rate, I like the Steely Dan song, “Only A Fool Would Say That,” lyrics which state,

    “I heard it was you
    Talkin’ ’bout a world
    Where all is free
    It just couldn’t be
    And only a fool would say that”

    After all, as you well know, there is no free lunch. Someone somewhere pays something for everything.

    God bless!!

    Your friend,

  2. Hey Scott…thanks for that.

    And the verse actually says “for the LOVE of money is the root of all evil…” KJV and uses the word “kinds” in the NKJV. And that word is italicized. So…I was using the verse most of the world is used to hearing and elaborating on how the “love” part gets left out.

    I like the Steely Dan reference, too. Of course, they’re one of my all-time favorite bands.
