The Giant Called Anger

Anger is a natural human hormone-induced reaction to an experience in response to a perceived threat, injustice, or frustration.

Stephen Phinney | IM Contributing Author


Anger is experienced as a justified act of revenge upon oneself or another – often engaging in physical and psychological responses that involve vicious, violent, and aggressive thoughts or actions.

Anger is an action or reaction to a perceived belief.

Anger can be a normal and healthy expression of disappointment if managed constructively, such as through organized responses, addressing injustice and sin, or communicating doctrinal errors effectively. However, if anger is expressed in a destructive or harmful way, it can lead to negative consequences for both the individual experiencing it and those at the brunt end of it. It is important to release well-managed anger healthily to avoid harm to oneself and others.

Jesus displayed organized anger.

And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. (Matthew 21:12)

The evidence that His anger was well planned and organized was amid His wrath, He stopped and opened the cages of the doves and let them go free. Rage would not have included this compassionate response. Rage never includes compassion. Authentic compassion reveals authentic Grace.
