I enjoy collecting information about studies that relate to some aspect of the Bible. Over and over, social science data tends to confirm the Scriptures.It's a pity there weren't other books on earth that mentioned this tendency, but few are as perspicacious as crazy desert zealots. This certainly confirms the story of Jesus filling up a pig with demons.
A new study verifies the truth revealed in Paul’s statement in the Bible that the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
Paul didn’t say that money is the root of evil---although I’ve heard people misrepresent the Bible as supposedly saying that. Nor did he say it’s the lack of money that is the root of evil, although I’ve heard some people say that’s what it should say.
Yet I’ve known some poor people who were very greedy, and some rich who were not.
Well, a new study validates what the Bible said 2,000 years ago---not that it needs validation---that the love of money is indeed a corrupting influence.
Writing for CNBC, Mark Koba penned a report, “Just the Scent of Money is Corrupting: Study.”
Koba writes, “The report by University of Utah and Harvard researchers found that individuals who could gain monetarily through unethical behavior were more likely to demonstrate that behavior than those who weren't offered a financial gain.”
