Wednesday October 5, 20111 Timothy: 1 Timothy 6:10-The Love Of Money Is The Root Of All Kinds Of Evil And Some Wandered From The Faith Because Of ItLesson # 132


Please turn in your bibles to 1 timothy 6 3

Please turn in your Bibles to 1 Timothy 6:3.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

In 1 Timothy 6:10, the apostle Paul teaches that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil and some wandered from the faith because of it.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

1 Timothy 6:3 If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness,


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

4 he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

5 and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.


6 but godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment

6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

7 For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. 8 If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

9 But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

10 For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. (NASB95)


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

“For the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil” is composed of the nominative feminine singular form of the noun rhiza (ῥίζα) (or-ree-zah), “the root” and this is followed by the post-positive conjunction gar (γάρ) (gar), “for” and then we have the genitive neuter plural form of the adjective pas (πᾶς), “full” which is modifying the articular genitive neuter plural form of the adjective kakos (κακός) (kah-koce), “evil”


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

and then we have the third person singular present active indicative form of the verb eimi (εἰμί) (ee-mee), “is” and this is followed by the articular nominative feminine singular form of the noun philarguria (φιλαργυρία) (feeldah-eeya-reeah), “love of money.”


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The conjunction gar is introducing a statement that presents the reason why those apostate pastors who want to be rich fall into temptation which is a trap set by the devil which plunges these men into experiencing discipline from God resulting in a loss of rewards.


The noun philarguria refers to avarice which is an excessive or insatiable desire for wealth

The noun philarguria refers to “avarice,” which is an excessive or insatiable desire for wealth.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

This word speaks of a form of a idolatry, which originally meant the worship of idols, or the worship of false gods by means of idols, but came to mean among the Old Testament Hebrews any worship of false gods, whether by images or otherwise or the worship of the Lord through visible symbols (Hos 8:5-6; 10:5).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

Idolatry is not only the giving to any creature or human creation the honor or devotion, which belongs to God alone, but also is putting anything ahead of your relationship with God and which would prevent you from doing His will (1 Cor 10:14; Gal 5:20; Col 3:5; 1 Peter 4:3).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

Ultimately in the New Testament idolatry came to mean, not only the giving to any creature or human creation the honor or devotion which belonged to God alone, but the giving to any human desire a precedence over God's will (1 Cor 10:14; Gal 5:20; Col 3:5; 1 Peter 4:3; 1 John 5:21).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The love of money is thus a form of idolatry in the sense that it is putting acquiring money ahead of love for God, which is demonstrated by obedience to the Word of God (John 14:15).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

Therefore, since avarice or an insatiable love for wealth is idolatry, it violates the first of the ten commandments, which is to never have any gods before the Lord, which would include money or materialism (Exodus 20:3).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The love of money thus violates the commandment to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength (Matthew 22:37).


The lord jesus christ taught that you can never love both money and god matthew 6 16 25

The Lord Jesus Christ taught that you can never love both money and God (Matthew 6:16-25).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The Christian who pursues riches will not grow to maturity since it prevents the Word of God from taking root in their soul (Luke 8:4-15).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The Lord Jesus Christ taught not to be a lover of money, which was rejected by the Pharisees because they were lovers of money (Luke 16:1-17).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The writer of Hebrews warns believers to be content, making sure their character is free from the love of money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

Hebrews 13:5 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,” 6 so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?” (NASB95)


Paul teaches that in the last days people will be characterized as lovers of money 2 timothy 3 1 5

Paul teaches that in the last days people will be characterized as lovers of money (2 Timothy 3:1-5).


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The believer who loves money will be an unfaithful steward of the money that God has given him or her.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

In 1 Timothy 6:10, the noun rhiza is used in a figurative sense and means “the root” or “the cause” referring to the “cause” of all sorts of evils in a believer’s life.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

Paul is teaching the reason why the unfaithful pastors in Ephesus commit all sorts of evil, namely because they commit the sin of loving money more than the Lord.


The adjective kakos is in the plural and means evil actions

The adjective kakos is in the plural and means “evil actions.”


The adjective pas refers to the individual acts of sin that constitute evil

The adjective pas refers to the individual acts of sin that constitute evil.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

“And some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith” is composed of the genitive feminine singular form of the relative pronoun hos (ὅς) (oce), “which” and this is followed by the nominative masculine plural form of the indefinite pronoun tis (τις) (teece), “some”


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

and then we have the nominative masculine plural present middle participle form of the verb orego (ὀρέγω) (ore-raygo), “by longing for” and this is followed by the third person plural aorist passive indicative form of the verb apoplanao (ἀποπλανάω) (ahpoe-plah-nahowe), “have wandered away” and then we have the preposition apo (ἀπό) (ah-poe), “from” and its object is the articular genitive feminine singular form of the noun pistis (πίστις) (pee-steece), “the faith.”


The indefinite pronoun tis refers to certain unidentified apostate christian pastors in ephesus

The indefinite pronoun tis refers to certain unidentified apostate Christian pastors in Ephesus.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The verb orego speaks of a negative or evil desire and means “to lust” or “to possess an insatiable desire” for money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The middle voice of the verb is an indirect middle indicating that these unfaithful, apostate pastors in Ephesus were selfishly acting in their own interests rather than in the interests of the Lord Jesus and His body by possessing an insatiable desire for money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The verb orego functions as a causal participle indicating that the verb is expressing the reason why some pastors in Ephesus wandered away from the Christian faith.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The verb apoplanao is in the passive and means “to lead astray” from Christian doctrine and refers to the act of apostasy meaning that you were obeying the Word of God but you did a 180 and are now going in the opposite direction.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

It is used here of certain pastors in Ephesus who were teaching false doctrine because they loved money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The noun pistis is used in an objective sense for the Christian faith and refers to the gospel from the perspective of a body of doctrine or that which is believed by the church.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The noun pistis is the object of the preposition apo, which functions as a marker of separation or dissociation indicating that the love of money was the reason why certain pastors in Ephesus wandered away “from” or “dissociated” themselves “from” obeying Paul’s apostolic teaching.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

“And pierced themselves with many griefs” is composed of the conjunction kai (καί) (keh), “and” which is followed by the accusative masculine plural form of the reflexive pronoun heautou (ἑαυτοῦ) (owf-too), “themselves” and then we have the third person plural aorist active indicative form of the verb peripeiro (περιπείρω) (pehdee-pearowe), “pierced”


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

and this is followed by the dative feminine plural form of the noun odune (ὀδύνη) (owe-thee-nee), “with griefs” which is modified by the dative feminine plural form of the adjective polus (πολύς) (police), “many.”


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The conjunction kai is used in a consecutive sense or in other words, it introduces a phrase that presents the result of certain pastors in Ephesus wandering away from Paul’s apostolic teaching because of their love of money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The verb peripeiro means “to impale” or “to pierce through” and refers to those unfaithful, apostate pastors in Ephesus who taught false doctrine because of their love of money causing themselves to suffer the terrible consequences of their actions.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The reflexive pronoun heautou emphasizes the action of these unfaithful, apostate pastors who because of their love of money impaled “themselves” with many sorrows or in other words, their suffering is self-inflicted.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The noun odune is figuratively for the state of severe emotional distress and anxiety of those apostate pastors who loved money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

This word refers to the severe mental and physical pain that these pastors have inflicted upon themselves because of their love of money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

It speaks of the severe physical and mental anguish that is the result of obeying the sinful desires of their sin nature because of their love of money.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

The word odune speaks of the mental anguish that these pastors were experiencing because of their love of money since their conscience would be accusing them of sin, which if the sin is not confessed and repented of will lead to physical illnesses.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

Thus, it speaks of the pain of a guilty conscience, which not dealt with through the confession of sin and obedience will result in severe physical pain.


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

Commenting on this word, Towner writes, “Any number of things might be included, from the personal emotional torments of unfulfilled dreams (of wealth) and damaged reputations to the relationships destroyed when desire for wealth overrules brotherly love.” (Page 405)


Wenstrom bible ministries marion iowa pastor teacher bill wenstrom wenstrom 5068982

So the word is a general term which speaks of the severe emotional anguish as well as severe physical pain as a result of the Lord handing these unfaithful pastors over to the consequences of their bad decision to love money more than Him.
