As we're discovering in this series, sometimes a phrase or a line that we have heard a thousand times, attributed to the Bible, doesn't actually come from the Bible, or loses some important background context.  That's definitely the case when we hear the line, "Money is the root of all evil," which is really a sort of partially-remembered version of "The love of money is a root of all kinds of all kids of evil," from First Timothy.  But beyond splitting hairs about precise wording, in this episode of Crazy Faith Talk, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve will take  deeper dive into the whole biblical witness about how we use money, how it can be used for God's purposes, how it easily becomes and idol, and how we face the challenge of not being possessed by our possessions.  Join us this week here on Crazy Faith Talk for more good conversation that takes us everywhere from ancient scriptures to poets like Alice Walker to the movie Idiocracy, and other places along the way.
