What is the root of all evil?

What do you think it is? If somehow we were all reborn and created all equal would the world "fall" again?

The Fall is the root of all evil. Eve put words into God's mouth and Adam just stood there and watched.

Free will. But it is also the root of the goodness capable within us.

evil is only the abscence of love, like cold is the adscence of heat, darkness the abscence of light...

free will and the selfishness that can com eof it. The root of all sin is putting the self above others and God. All greed, longing for power comes from this selfishness and self woship. But it wouldn't be possible without free will. Though free will doesn't actively produce evil, only we do.

Greed for power. Because everything is about power. Religion, politics, economics, everything.
