Most of you guys say you wouldn't do anything immoral or likewise for money but if you would be dropped in certain situations or the really bad places in Africa or South America or India or the Middle East or whatever, you'd see how wrong you'd be.
Plus if you really looked closely at your lives you'll see how money is the really the root of all evil.

I would really have to agree with this statement. Now money seems to be a necessary in this world, even if you are just trying to have a simple home and life, you still need to do it. I think my limit though would be selling myself for money or killing someone for money. I do have my limits.

yes that's what I am saying. There is always a way , it may be harder but better than selling your morals

Nothing illegal is ever worth it. If your conscience doesn't drive you crazy then having to watch your back from snitchers or the law would definitely keep you from enjoying the money you made from any illegal activity.

Haha, I am loving the picture of a conscience driving sb crazy because I have experienced this, the worse you feel about stealing the crazier you get, it's quite sth

Yes you can find other ways to earn money

I have learned that money is definitely not the most important thing in the world. I think it is very important how one uses money. It should be used to take care of ourselves, our loved ones, and it can be used to make our lives more comfortable. If a person is in a position to do so, I think it is a great thing to give money to good causes. I would work for money for those reasons, but the people in my life is what I care about.

I love money but I can not lie, steal or even murder for it as these are all against my Christian faith.

Everybody needs money. Money can do a lot of things but money is not about everything in this world. Money is nothing if it burns bridges.

Although one needs money to survive daily life and meet basic needs, I would not like to go against my morals or do something I really hate just for money.
