I believe that greed is a form of evil but not the root of all evil. In order for greed to be the root of evil every thing that is considered evil would have to evolve around greed, which is not the case.

Greed is the root of all evil because people are very materialistic. They seem to think money buys happiness. Therefore, they try to get as much as possible. Also, people want what they cannot have. From phones to houses, people envy their neighbors of what treasures they own. Then people do evil acts to gain what they want.

Not all evil is caused by greed. Some people do evil things just because they want to or someone tells them to. Sometimes evil is caused by a mental illness or sickness.

Greed one of the roots of evil, but it isn't the root of all evil. There are other sins that can be committed other than greed. Although many there are problems in this world related to greed, it isn't the root of all evil.

Greed is not the root of all evil. Not every evil action is stimulated by greed. Evil can be produced by many other characteristics, feelings, or unexplained mental problems.

Greed is not the root of all evil because someone can do an act of evil, but necessarily be driven by evil. Sometimes evil is created by from the what others have put in their heads and it is a total act of innocence because that person believes they are doing the right thing. Also, mental illnesses and troubled backgrounds may be the cause of evil acts.

No, evil doesn't always stem from greed. It could come from a personal vendetta against one person, or sheer hatred of an entire group. Evil can also be inherited from previous family members. 9/11 wasn't done out of greed, Al-Qaeda had a problem with the US intervening with the Middle East's business, the Holocaust was done out of Hitler's pure hatred of Jews, and racism is still prevalent today, kept alive by inheritance from generation to generation.
