Selfishness is the root of all evil and transgression of the laws of God

It is about getting better...

From Shawne Thomas

From a Bible Devotion

A preacher seemed to have oversimplified sin and salvation by saying that the root of all sins is selfishness.  Say the 7 deadly sins of glutton avarice, greed, jealousy, all stem from love of one self and /or over emphasis on ones desires.  And also the ten Commandments of God - thus thou shalt not steal covet thy neighbors wife etc are all directed against man;s  relentless desire for self gratification and satisfaction of ones desire.

The Lord Jesus Christ has been more positive and simple by enjoining us to love one another as we love our self.   That is depriving ourselves or equaling our love of ourselves and others.  Do you agree?
