If that's what he was implying then I'm pretty sure he's right about it.


Greed is a natural emotion/feeling that doesn't start nor end with Earth. We are only one of many planets that are run by the greedy, a.k.a. Satan.

Greed is not an emotion, desire is an emotion. Greed is a sickness or possibly a disease. Wealthy is not related to greed either. People of all classes and lifestyle can get greedy.

I used emotion for lack of a better word, but yes you are right, everyone is greedy but money only compounds that greed.

It's ok to be greedy in some situations when it comes to survival like with food but greed for man-made money is the main thing wrong with the world today. Greed for money is why wars are fought and why people starve and are poor. Greed for money is Satan in my opinion and humans are the only ones who desire it.

If greed is the root of all evil like you say then there would be no situations where it would be ok.

When you stock up for survival and look out for the needs of your family, that is not greed. Preparedness for survival is a part of need. Compassion to others is part of life but a family's survival supersedes it if necessary. If something happens and I see someone starving, I will then decide if the situation allows me to help them. If I see an end in sight or a good soul in the person I will help. I doubt if anything is going to happen that is very bad, but what people in the area where you are do and act like during this is what determines the outcome of the event in that area.

Greed is not the root of all evil. The root of all evil is the desire to always take more than you need, and never give as much as you should. Besides, evil is not absolute, and I'll tell you why: we cannot factor all the variables required to determine whether the giving and the taking were balanced out, due to the extensive consequences of every action, to the most minute degree in the far far future. Therefore, we cannot say for certain whether an action is ultimately evil or good. Even if we could factor those variables - ALL of them - we have a very difficult time observing the results from an objective view point. And that's the crux of it all...emotion. How we feel about it. Fear, anger, sadness, joy, hope, love.

No object or creature is evil or good, only its actions are. If it was designed to act purely evil, then it might be considered evil. But I wouldn't trust anyone calling something evil, because we're always interested in serving ourselves above all. Therefore, theoretically, anything evil could be something acting for the good of all at the detriment of the self, or the detriment of every individual person separately.

Does this make sense?

First paragraph i think that faith in GOD plays a role in actions and you do not recognize that.
Second paragraph made sense to me.

I agree, I will concede that the need for survival is not greed but what I said about material things like money still stands. Greed for money leads to wars, lies, and poverty.

It's not only money, it is when you want a lot of things at the expense of having a simple and easy life. Do we need the newest I phone so we can brag about it? That's two hundred fifty after tax dollars. Do we need the fastest internet? Nobody has time to think anymore. Do we have to eat foods that cost twice as much just because we can afford it and turn up our noses at others choices? Do we have to prove we are better than others? Why not be in the same class as them so you can be friends. Does pride run your life? Pride in your accomplishments isn't greed as long as you don't let your pride control your mind. People who brag a lot are often shunned by their peers. Are you better than your parents? Maybe, if you have less greed and unfounded pride maybe you are, but remember to always respect your parents even though you may not see eye to eye.

Greed takes many forms. If the SHTF and you are living a glutinous life while others starve to death, do you want to live with that for the rest of your life? It may be necessary but only in the worst cases you can think of. We all have a conscience and our conscience can cause us to destroy ourselves. I will not say you should expose yourself to possible harm by exposing your foodstocks to theft. I am saying that care must be taken not to destroy the way you are, the way you want to be. Many people have sold their souls, they can no longer enjoy peace of mind.
