ANGER CAN BE MURDER

One of the most powerful emotions within our souls is anger. The sense I have is that the palpable level of anger in America is rising. “The more we learn about government, the more we learn about central bankers, the more we learn about the military industrial complex, the more we learn about social justice and the environmental movement, the more we learn about the move towards world government, the more we learn about politicians and political institutions and the corruption, waste, fraud, abuse and negligence they oversee and profit by, the angrier we get.”

This anger is troubling to the dictators in the People’s House in D.C. That’s why they have effectively militarized most local police forces throughout America. That is why DHS has purchased more that one billion hollow point bullets; these are illegal to use on any battlefield by the Geneva Convention. So where are they planning to use them?

We are the people the tyrants worry the most about; it is our anger that keeps them awake at night, scheming how to do away with us. However, many religious leaders in America are working to suppress that anger. To tell their followers that such anger is wrong; that it is forbidden by God. Just submit and obey your government no matter what it demands.

Now it is true that when we are enveloped with anger we may be led to do things we should not do, including murder. In fact Jesus speaks about this fact in the Sermon on the Mount. Turn to Matthew 5:21 as we see what Jesus taught on the Sixth Commandment. That Sixth simply states, “Thou shalt not murder.”

….There are instances recorded in the Bible where Jesus showed justifiable anger….we recall that He showed great anger once more when he drove “out those who sold and those who bought in the temple” (Mark 11:15-17).

Theologian B.B.Warfield wrote: “A man who cannot be angry, cannot be merciful.” The person who cannot be angry at things which thwart God’s purposes and God’s love toward people is living too far away from his fellow men ever to feel anything positive towards them. Do you have any justifiable anger?

Clearly there is justified anger, anger that is righteous and pure. That anger is a reflection of God’s anger against the evil and sin in this world.
Dr. David Seamands writes, “Anger is a divinely implanted emotion. Closely allied to our instinct for right, it is designed to be used for constructive spiritual purposes. The person who cannot feel anger at evil is a person who lacks enthusiasm for good. If you cannot hate wrong, it’s very questionable whether you really love righteousness.”[2]
