Eph4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Eph4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

This verse tells me it is not a sin to get angry. Even God get's angry. We sin when we let our anger control us.

Lord bless you all.

Once again, I return to this- because it' a reality, even the best of persons hey,can get angry,

( daily) read my forgiveness & love scriptures." hold" on to bad memories "keep anger" in our hearts,not good at all.

Mk11:25 ...if you hold anything against anyone,forgive him,so your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
---Lidia4796 on 1/4/14

I may go back on this one! Anger per-say is not a sin. I mean, you can feel anger, or feel angry, it's all in how you manage it. Now, Jesus got angry, it was righteous anger. And by the way He still does. He hates injustice, liars, blasphemers, He hates godless laws that's being past. I may add, if you are walking close enough to God, you may have the privilege from-to-time to actually inside of you feel God's anger. But, you need to learn the difference and this takes experiences.

Anger is an emotion, it's not a sin. Did Jesus sin when he was angry at the vendors in the temple? It's what you do with that anger that can be a sin. How you react to your own anger. If your anger causes you to explode on people unfairly then that is the sin.
---Jed on 9/9/13

Well, there is righteous anger. Is anger a sin? It can lead to be sin, if not manage correctly.. And you really need God's help. He is more powerful than your anger. Thank goodness! My Father in the name of Jesus, thank You for being God. Thank you for everyday, your power gets me through everyday. Maybe the world don't need You, but I do. And I am proud of it. In the name of Jesus, amen!

Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places, thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down, and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignation forever.
That is unless (indignation forever) means something else to you!

Sometimes you should be angry and stay angry!
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches, To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
---TheSeg on 9/9/13

Always we can be/ get angry but, do NOT stay, keep it,too long- turns into unforgiveness = bitterness= illness= worry= depression= could lead to = violence,etc ..Ps.16:30 Pr.16:39
If you have a past always lots of hurt,sadness,anger = study read memorize or like me,keep notes and stay focus( into those forgiveness) Scriptures! Helps alot! Mt.6:12 Col.3:13 Eph.4: 32
Love of jesus!
---Lidia4796 on 9/8/13

No! Anger is not a sin. However, We need to try and stay calm while we are fumeing. Not as easy as you may think, but, it is self-discipline. And that is why it is not so easy as you may think. Not many people have it, either. Regardless of training and or education. If they don't take it out on one, they will take it out on another one.

Anger is not a sin, because even God gets angry and God is perfect.In the bible, Jesus got angry when he saw all the people selling and buying in the temple.
---sarah on 11/22/09

We are to practice self-control and not to have angry fits of rage. This type of anger has the potential to lead to hatred and even murder. Remember, in 1 John we read that if someone hates his brother it is like being a murderer. Also remember that Jesus said if we say 'you fool!' we are in danger of God's wrath.

If we are angry as Jesus became angry at the money changers in the temple, of angered at the Pharisees, this is an entirely different motive for anger. He was angry because these people were not honoring God and living in obedience to the Holy Father. This is just and righteous anger.

Be angry and yet do not sin, do not let the sun go down on your anger Ephesians 4:26

It is not the anger that is sinful.
---Tonya on 10/14/09

No anger is not a sin, neither is sadness, nor pain, nor frustration.
---Eloy on 10/14/09

The bible contains many references to God being angry.This anger nature is what the old believed his nature is-both good and evil and happy and angry.
The gospel as Jesus taught it is his father is angerless.
Anger is a human emotion bordering on revenge.
No doubt,we are many times angered by the world hurting us in many ways but anger is an unfit emotion that requires self control that which God is not required to exercise upon himself for he is truly perfect and harbors no anger.

Does not the bible say to be angry and sin not? if anger is a sin then Jesus sinned as he was angry many times.
---kevin on 10/12/09

Yes, It is a sin. Confess right away so it doesn't grow into a worse sin. God wants us to practice feelings of joy and happiness instead.
---Angel11 on 10/11/09

God gets angry. So, if my anger is in the Holy Spirit, not it is not a sin. But God in His anger does what makes things better > what is caring > so in the Holy Spirit's anger I will be filled and led to do what makes things better . . . blessing and not cursing > "without complaining and disputing" (Philippians 2:14)

However, Satan has emotions, including anger, but not the kind of anger that is in God's Holy Spirit. So, if Satan's spirit of evil (Ephesians 2:2) is getting me into his anger, Paul very clearly says what to do > "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice." (Ephesians 4:31) God Almighty can easily get rid of wrong anger.
---Bill_bila5659 on 10/10/09

God hates all sin Psalm 5:4-5 follow Christ is to overcome sin as Apostle Paul spoke of many trials of the flesh Rom 7:14-23

Anger is a work of the flesh Col 3:8 one aspect of the nature of a physical human - the flesh. True Christians are a work in progress - few are very slow to anger for others anger is an attitude that would require work to overcome ...we are to turn away from sin it is not an overnight instant happening it is a lifetime process

wrong thoughts lead to wrong actions ...what you think eventually becomes what you do Prov 23:7 James 1:14-15

Anger is a sin without just cause.
When Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple it sounds to me like he might have been angry.
---mima on 10/9/09

Anger is an emotion. It is not a sin. How we behave because we feel angry CAN be a sin. That is the problem. The words and behaviors that accompany anger have a lot of potential to damage relationships.
---Trish9863 on 10/8/09

I believe that anger can be used as something that is both active and passive. One being that in the bible when Joseph was accused of molesting Potiphars wife. It is said that the Egyptian nobleman burned with anger (Gen. 39:19). On the other hand Potiphars wife appears to portary herself as an innocent victim. She came to Joseph day after day and when he refused and fled from her he left his cloak and falsly accused Joesph of traying to make sport of her. No outbursts or wild tantrums on her part. She manipulated life to get what she wanted. She demonstrated a passive form of anger. Is it sin? Such is the case that one can become manipulative with anger at the same time being silent and deviant.
---Mark on 10/8/09

Jesus was angry. It is not necessarily a sin.
Mark 3:5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

The important things are: What are you angry about? And what will you do about it?

The Question of "Is anger a sin?"

Answer "Only when it gives place to the devil"!!!! Eph.4:27.
---Shawn.M.T. on 10/8/09

Yes, anger is a sin if you let it build up.
---Betty on 10/8/09

Psalms 9:11 God judgeth the righteous,God is angry with the wicked every day. Proverbs 14:17,22:24 & 25 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly,Make no friendship with an angry man:Lest thou learn his way. God gets angry,Jesus overthrew money changers in anger, anger against ones who violated Gods rules. We see we are warned not to be friends with angry lest we do the same. We aren't to give into the passion of anger which brings forth sin as Epheshians 4:26 shows Be ye angry and sin not,let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Anger is an emotion and on its own with good cause it does happen but it is about forgiveness,don't let sun go down until anger is put to rest or done away with,ended with no chance to grow and cause ongoning sin.
---Darlene_1 on 10/8/09
