Got an evil in mind that isn't rooted in covetousness?

ALL EVIL is not referring to every kind of evil or sin but rather to a state of evil without mixture of any good. The word evil here denotes the consequences of sin.
The redefinition of all evil not being all evil is no surprise. And the support from the RCC Douay, and their NAB 1970 is duly noted, and fits perfectly, as does the highly honored RSV.
ps. Wycliffe's renders it "For the root of all evils is covetousness." Quite accurate when you think of it.
The Holy Spirit has yet to convict Christians that the love of money is the root of all evil. Anyone wonder at this? Words indeed do mean things, and if true words and the Spirit work in tandem to convict, we need decide whether to abide the Holy Spirit, or defend the error.
Maybe. I looked at the video, but couldn't determine the number of shots. Once the car stopped, for some reason the cam view panned right so the guy who was in the center of the vid, was now on the left edge. We never got to see who did the shooting, nor was it determinable how many shots there were from this vid. You could tell he was shot when he was down, but that's about all.
From the news: "The church discussed the decision to retire some of its Confederacy-related items for months before deciding to remove its needlepoint kneelers, coat of arms, and plaques honoring Confederate General Robert E. Lee and Confederate President Jefferson Davis. ..."
The Episcopal church doesn't do much right anyway, so this fits in smoothly.

A white cop shoots a black teen 16 times as the teen walks away with a small knife in his hand. Souces say the video is clear and extremely disturbing so I'm really concerned about the mayhem, beatings, and murderous backlash it's release will cause. I see another Ferguson happening shortly in Chicago, unfortunately.
One thing I noticed about the tragic killing of the young wife and mother- the racial makeup of perps and victim was not mentioned. Why is mention not avoided when it's the other way around?

They change "sodomite" to shrine male prostitutes. How would you really know what these "prostitutes" really are, if you depended on the corrupt NIV translation.
Ask someone on the street what a sodomite is if you want a blank stare. That's insider language today.

I also believe there is an adversary named Satan who sows doubt as to what God said - â€śYea, hath God saidâ€¦?â€ť (Genesis 3:1) and who came to steal, destroy and to catch away the words of God that are sown in the hearts of men (Matthew 13:19; John 10:10) ESV,NIV,NASB,RSV omit about 3000 words&45 verses.
I understand your concern. How many of the elect to salvation do you suppose have been lost due to "missing words"?

But I was hoping for less candidates , less bluster and time for resume vetting. And my guy quit early... RNC why did you allow so many bad actors in the clown car?
Why would you say Christie needs to be on the ticket? Let's face it, if New Jersey folks voted for him he isn't nearly conservative enough. Cruz or Carson I can support. That's pretty much all. Ultimately though anyone is better than Clinton or the other socialist.
Jim Lincoln wrote: --- Rendering To Caesar: A Biblical Perspective On Government (Yes, just good ol' html format ) and there are very little things we can disobey or especially show dishonor to the king/president. Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment...7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. Now, perhaps I might have been hard on Cruz since we do have a triumvirate form of government, so if he criticizes with due respect, then he can. But, savaging leaders in office isn't what God said is what to be done
Ah Jim, you skipped Romans 13:3&4 again. No matter, I'm glad you included the verse about giving honor to whom honor is due. That renders your Caesar but little, since little has been earned. He ought at least honor the office as much as you expect others to honor him, who is no more than a famous employee, not a ruler under the lawful system God has granted us.

The same principle for most everything else that the government wants to control- create a problem for which they have the "solution". Children/people who can't concentrate,can't concentrate because they have been so conditioned by tv and media.
Yup, not only normal energetic children doing what's just fine, sometimes it's just naughty undisciplined behavior, which is also seen as a medical condition which needs a drug to fix it. It fits right in with the "no spanking" movement.

Luke 2:17 "And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child."
We can agree they were joyful. If the shepherds were happy to hear what they heard, and to see who the saw, what do we suppose they did to avoid appearing celebratory as they told others, and returned to the field, after having seen the babe who was the Savior? Clenched jaw? No need to parse the difference between joy and happiness. I would suggest they were quite happy about it, with smiles even.
