Why did God permit Sin?



Anger and the Bible

A short-tempered man is a fool.
"Don't be quick-tempered—that is being a fool." "A wise man restrains his anger and overlooks insults. This is to his credit." "It is better to be slow-tempered than famous; it is better to have self-control than to control an army." Ecclesiastes 7:9, Proverbs 19:11, and 16:32, TLB

Get over anger quickly.
"If you are angry, don't sin by nursing your grudge. Don't let the sun go down with you still angry—get over it quickly; For when you are angry you give a mighty foothold to the devil." Ephesians 4:26-27, TLB

Don't fight back when wronged.
"Don't repay evil for evil. Don't snap back at those who say unkind things about you. Instead, pray for God's help for them, for we are to be kind to others, and God will bless us for it." I Peter 3:9, TLB

Anger produces strife.
"For as churning the milk produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife." Proverbs 30:33, NIV5




Wrong ways to deal with Anger

 Hold it in, ignore, deny, push it under, stuff it.
   a. Internally. Seethe with bitterness, jealousy, etc.
   b. Externally. The "silent treatment." - Eph. 4:26

"Dump it;" "get it off your chest."
   a. Direct expression. Explode. Blow up. Gal. 5:20; Prov. 12:16; Prov. 14:29; Prov. 29:11; Prov. 29:22; Eccl. 7:9
   b. Indirect expression. "I'll get even." - Lev. 19:18; Rom. 12:19
   c. Substitutionary expression. "Ventilation."

Turn aside. Get your mind off of it.

Profess to be powerless. Make excuses. Disclaim responsibility.6


Correct ways to deal with Anger

Suppress. Restrain; subdue the negative expression. Prov. 29:11; Prov. 17:14; Prov. 20:3

Assess. Evaluate the situation objectively.
    a. Consider the other person's perspective.
    b. Consider your contribution to the problem. - Matt. 7:3-5; James 1:19

Confess. "Say the same thing as God." - I John 1:9

Process. Proceed to make it right.
    a. "Turn the other cheek." - Matt. 5:39
    b. Gentle answer. - Prov. 15:1
    c. Meekness. - Eph. 4:2; I Peter 3:15
    d. Forgiveness. - Matt. 18:22; Col. 3:13
    e. Give a blessing. - I Peter 3:9

Access. In computer terminology this means "to connect with," "to communicate with." The foregoing behavioral expressions must be a result of the Christian having "accessed" with God. I Peter 2:236


Bible Dictionary Meaning

The emotion of instant displeasure on account of something evil that presents itself to our view. In itself it is an original susceptibility of our nature, just as love is, and is not necessarily sinful. It may, however, become sinful when causeless, or excessive, or protracted (Matt. 5:22; Eph. 4:26; Col. 3:8). As ascribed to God, it merely denotes his displeasure with sin and with sinners (Ps. 7:11).7


Definition of Anger

1. A strong emotion; a feeling that is oriented toward some real or supposed grievance
2: the state of being angry
3: belligerence aroused by a real or supposed wrong (personified as one of the deadly sins)4



Anger is an emotional state that may range from minor irritation to intense rage. The physical effects of anger include increased heart rate, blood pressure, and levels of adrenaline and noradrenaline. Some view anger as part of the fight or flight brain response to the perceived threat of harm. Anger becomes the predominant feeling behaviorally, cognitively and physiologically when a person makes the conscious choice to take action to immediately stop the threatening behavior of another outside force. Anger can lead to many things physically and mentally.

The external expression of anger can be found in facial expressions, body language, physiological responses, and at times in public acts of aggression. Animals and humans for example make loud sounds, attempt to look physically larger, bare their teeth, and stare. Anger is a behavioral pattern designed to warn aggressors to stop their threatening behavior. Rarely does a physical altercation occur without the prior expression of anger by at least one of the participants. While most of those who experience anger explain its arousal as a result of "what has happened to them," psychologists point out that an angry person can be very well mistaken because anger causes a loss in self-monitoring capacity and objective observability.9
