Righteous Anger

Complimentary Story
June 2024

   The title of this article undoubtedly will surprise and shock many church goers who have been taught all their lives that Christians should never get angry and stand up for truth and righteousness.  

   And because most “church goers” have bought into this hellish lie and deception that Christians should always be soft, gentle and kind.  Yeah, just like Christ was in John 2:14-17!  But especially those that hate God, His Word and laws will be shocked to see a “Christian” get up on their “hind feet” and say ENOUGH!  

   If anger in itself were a sin, then God the Father and our Saviour, Jesus Christ, have damned themselves!  Not only is it NOT a sin to have “righteous” anger, it is an abomination against God Himself when His people do not!  

   To take a quote out of my third book, “A righteous man cannot peaceably co-exist with evil.” ( II Corinthians 6:14-16, Matthew 10:34-39).  Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, “There is a time for all things.”   Including taking a stand in righteous anger!

   The key word in the title of this article is not “angry,” but rather “righteous!”  Any “mature”  Christian will clearly see through the deception of the soft soap, cotton candy, all fluff and no substance doctrine that has permeated most “religious” organizations that call themselves churches today!  The challenge we must face and overcome is the self centered, prideful, hurt “feelings” type of anger that all of us give into far too many times!  

   Renewing our minds and keeping our tempers under control is a growing process that takes Godly discipline and control.  Man’s natural anger is controlled mostly by our sinful nature and in most cases does not work in the righteousness of God. (James 1:20).  

   When we finally “outgrow” our sinful tendencies to get angry over ourselves, but rather become righteously angry over the disobedience to God’s Word, then we can be angry and sin not! (Ephesians 4:26).

   In the same verse we are instructed not to let that anger turn to bitterness or we will let them give place to the devil. (Ephesians 4:27).

  Man’s anger, unconstrained by God’s Word, causes strife, wars, murders, divisions and much more because we lust after wealth, power, prideful and personal gain. (James 4:1-2).

   Righteous anger too, can and will cause strife, divisions and even sometimes wars, but only for the glory of God to uphold.  (Matthew 10:34-39).
