If money is the root of all evil, why do they ask for it in church?

Asking for it every sunday certainly makes it seem like they love it...

Pastors have to eat, too. Man does not live on bread alone, but certainly helps.

The love of money is the root of all evil definitionAll wrongdoing can be traced to an excessive attachment to material wealth. This saying comes from the writings of the Apostle Paul. It is sometimes shortened to “Money is the root of all evil. It has to do with your intention towards money, may be you need to solve a particular problem and the money is not there, the procedure you may use to acquire it may be bad (evil), which is termed as such. But money itself isn't evil, just the motives behind it. Why is needed in the church is because of the need to carry out some projects (good ones) such as assisting the widows, orphans, building of pastorium, church auditorium etc. My little contribution

Just as pointed out by @Swende, money itself is not evil, but the lack of money is the root of all evil.

It's the love of money that is the root of all evil. Not money itself, as many will say!

it was never said that money is the root of all evil, rather the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

I don't think the "Love of Money" is the root of all evil, have you thought about the "Lack of Money"? - It's the evil itself.
