Default Apprehending the Vicious Root

Please note the distinction given from the third text,
“For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil,
and some by longing for it have wandered away from
the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
– Apostle Paul

“, , the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things
enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.”
– Christ Jesus

“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper, , “ – Apostle John

(1 Timothy 6:10, Mark 4:19, 3 John 1:2)
I suppose few could view the above and not instantly recognize the clarion call to watch oneself, other’s conduct AND condition; the blessings and dangers of wealth. But man is flawed, what happens to him if those floodgates of wealth spring forth in abundance?

Let’s say he was an industrialists or inventor, ever seeking to make the most of projections till it overtakes the norms of everyday business thereby personal and spiritual well being securing for himself a piece of the “root”. The excess obviously is what got him there, but by what lack?

At this point, a handful reading here would be tempted to say the human condition is so fickle on a vast number of fronts it would be impossible to conclude, but not according to God’s word. No, I do think it possible to pinpoint a condition of lack that has been with mankind from the ancient’s right through to today, young or old ignorance spreading an infection so insidious is nothing short of the granddaddy of all abuses, any and all vulnerably exposed receive a like-minded,

Lack of faith.

Thoughts?

A lack of faith condition. Just as the Apostle confirms what reason seems to indicate,
“For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil,
and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith, ,”
(1 Tim 6:10)
"All sorts"? Does that include the condition of some within that claim Christianity but oppose, even accuse those who stand on the truth of the word? Remember, we are still engaged in defining the root of this activity. Described in another place as,
“, , an evil heart of unbelief“
So if the drive of interest is in the “longing” (v-10), then the Churchgoer accepts that spirit of accusation and such self-deception will want nothing less than to fulfill the report of error on the upholders of truth right down to the last degree of possibilities, as opposed to the drive that seeks the kindness behind “love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).

There is no doubt in my mind that much of the mud-slinging AND counter-attacks carried out today are geared with this same last degree of possibilities drive that has fooled itself into thinking nothing of the text applies to people’s lack for defense. They just don’t think it’s possible God’s word could be that true such as,
We therefore were buried with Him through baptism
into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised
from the dead through the glory of the Father,
we too may walk in newness of life.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


(Romans 6:4, 2 Corinthians 5:17)
By what I can tell, this tells me when I couple them with other text, the new spiritual man in Christ has come out from under sin’s hold on him. Whether or not we chose to grow in Him, God rewards all, a heart geared in faith, or the patterns of unbelief.

Sadly, these are myths to the evil-churchgoing heart, AKA liberal theology, and can even be seen going on the offensive against anti-Christian bias. The lack therefore makes great day-to-day bed-partners with the bulk of left-wing antics most clearly seen in double-standards. The last administration provided a rich lineup for anyone watching.

I recall one large instance about eleven years ago when all those on the left found itself in severe panic. If you recall, when during the McCain-Palin campaign the left sent out hopper-hoppers to again find any “last degree of possibilities” dirt while turning a massive blind-eye to the Obama-Biden debacle of integrity.

If anyone reading here is still negatively locked on the above description, it would be wise to bring it before the Lord or also another brother or sister you esteem as prudent in the word.
