    Where is greed found?

    Is it found in a person that profits from starting a business and hires people to make more profit only to turn most of its profits back into his business?

    No!

    Is it found in the person who is hired by the business that uses their earnings to first provide for their family (as is the word of GOD by Paul) then their Church, while also preparing for retirement so that they
    are not a burden to their children or state?

    No!

    Is it found in a person that runs contraband (drugs, shine or porn) to gain money that is not reported for taxes?

    Yes!

    Is it found in a person that has a business that started profitable but did not turn the profits back into it, hoarding it into their own bank accounts off shore to avoid taxation and responsibility to their employees and the nation that made the economic climate favorable for profits?

    Yes!

    Is it found in an employee that seeks more pay while not performing the duties they were hired to do?

    Yes!

    Is it found in an over reaching government that demands more and more from its citizens even as it drives then into poverty?

    Yes!

    Is it found in the citizenry that will not work at something to support their own responsibilities and expect the industrious to be responsible for them?

    Yes!

    Is it found in the union thug that strikes their employer to the point that the company has no choice but to close its business, putting many other hard working employees out in the cold, while the thug still has money to live on from the dues they collected from the rank and file member?

    Yes!

    Is it found in the religious organization that is more concerned about its own coffers than that of missions and its trust in the GOD that supplies all needs?

    YES!

    Thank you for a post filled with common sense (which isn't very common these days.)
