1 Timothy 6:10

MMDE: Money is the root of all evil

Current: The love of money is the root of all evil

It's a really well-known saying, but does the Bible actually say "Money is the root of all evil"? Only if you're experiencing a Mandela Effect, because what it actually says is "The love of money is the root of all evil".

Here's the full entry from the King James 1611 edition:

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."

Emphasising the love of money, rather than money itself, often comes as quite a surprise to many people when they hear of this.
