Root of all evil

Right on the Left Coast brought this opinion piece from The News ( August 9th to my attention:
People often misquote the Bible saying, "Money is the root of all evil." But the biblical verse actually states, "The love of money is the root of all evil." Money is not evil. Material goods are not evil. Marketing is not evil. The evil is when we replace a love of people with a love of things. The evil is when we base our self-worth on the worth of what we own. The evil is when we judge ourselves based on what we wear on our heads rather than what we have in our heads and in our hearts. Ultimately, our goodness is in us, not in our good.
Can't add much to that.
