Anger is a problem


By Dr. John W. Lewis - Religion Writer



Anger, in and of itself, is not sinful, but anger is a problem for just about everyone.

Proverbs 15: 1, “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”

Anger is usually demonstrated by blowing up (the ventilation of anger), or the clamming up (the internalization of anger).

The Bible says do not let the sun go down on our wrath or anger. We are told to control our anger, to direct it toward the problem rather than toward another or oneself. Consider your mate, children, and others important enough to control your anger. Let me ask you, is the emotion packed into your comment appropriate for the crime?

Few things are sapping the strength of the church of Jesus Christ more than the unreconciled state of so many believers.
