i know why people hate money very much sometimes, but it is not money's fault, it is because we are still not able to use money and we give money to people legally even they do something illegal or do something which is not good for our society.
maybe money is a very good idea, but we are still not intelligent enough to use this idea.
That is almost impossible. Even in the most primitive societies there was a 'currency' of some sort whether its beads or bits of shell or horses or sheep or whatever. Even back when barter and trade were the main way of doing things valuations were placed on things so like it might take five dozen eggs to trade for one baby goat and four goats to trade for one cow, etc. In this world someone always has something that others dont have but either want or need. Most folks arent willing to give those things away for free. There always has to be a currency and exchange rate of some sort. In most cases money is required to entice people to work and do what is necessary. Most of the goods and services you enjoy because people get paid to provide them. There are more foreign doctors in our clinics now because American docs arent getting the money they want and are moviing to more lucrative specialties.
Money provides a defense against poverty and its attendant troubles, enabling persons to procure both necessities and luxuries. (Compare Ec 7:12; 10:19.) For this reason the possibility exists of a person’s beginning to trust in money as security and to forget his Creator. (Compare De 8:10-14.) “The love of money [literally, fondness of silver] is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains.” (1Ti 6:10) For money, persons have perverted justice, prostituted themselves, committed murder, betrayed others, and falsified the truth.—De 16:19; 23:18; 27:25; Eze 22:12; Mt 26:14, 15; 28:11-15. On the other hand, the proper use of money is approved by God. (Lu 16:1-9) This includes contributing toward the advancement of pure worship and giving material assistance to those in need. (Compare 2Ch 24:4-14; Ro 12:13; 1Jo 3:17, 18; see CONTRIBUTION; GIFTS OF MERCY.) Although much good can thus be done with money, the most valuable things—spiritual food and drink, eternal life itself—can be obtained without it.—Isa 55:1, 2; Re 22:17.
There will always have to be some sort of trade .. unless you can live off the land and never have to depend on anyone else for anything. In a large society, that is not even plausible. We can't all be living off the land .. if we did ... fish and wildlife would diminish to the point of extinction, crops would be pilfered by others who are desperate and intensely suffer from disease, pestilence and weather conditions .. you would have to 'defend' what you have like back in 'caveman' days.
The reality of it is .. we depend on trade for our goods and services. It's a matter of survival.
We can and at one time we did have world with out money. When Adam and Eve were created there was no currency! Many times today, money has had a very divisive effect on people. They use it to distinguish people's quality of life. At 1 Timothy 610 it says, "For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains." We need to just have a proper view of money in our lives.
