It happens a lot where the eagerness sends someone to the dark/immoral side of things, but there are people that are eager yet self-controlled and principled in their efforts.

Sin is for the most part is a myth. It is subjective and just a convenient word that the most narrow-minded of hypocritical Christians like to use.

I think sin is used in quite a few other religions with just as much verve if not more. But I get your point.

I'm of the mindset that the pursuit of and the obtainment of wealth only reveals who you really already are.

I have known and or met people who barely had two nickels to rub together and you couldn't trust them as far as you could throw them.

By the same token I have been around some very wealthy people who'd give you the shirt off there back to help you. And didn't get their money by cheating anyone.

I too. But it seemed to me the scoundrels were always eager to gain another penny, and the Samaritans, although rich, did not pursue every nickel with abject avarice.

A lot of compromises in regards of fairness and ethics are usually made by those who chase money

It is not riches that lead to sin, it is the unyielding pursuit of riches.

See I disagree with that notion simply people have "unyielding pursuits of may things in life.

I for one am pursuing a writing career. But my single minded focus of that hasn't made me sin.

And riches can and do lead to sin/bad behavior. Like I stated earlier. Having wealth will often times reveal who you already are in side, good or bad.

If your focus was so single minded that you failed to care for you family, that you disregarded your civic and moral duties, then perhaps you would agree?

Yes I would agree that if you do anything takes over your life to the exclusion of all else then yes that is bad.

It's bad for you and anyone who has to deal with you on a daily basis.
