Too Much Anger In Blogs

When I look at the blogs, I see what I think is too much anger between one Christian and another. Is this good? Are we helping our brothers and sisters in Christ when we write things that suggest much anger?

strongax, a person's "head knowledge" of the Lord is unpersonalized, detached, and exterior, much like reading a history book of happenings of long ago, rather than of real happenings to the person in the present. And therefore the person remains unmoved, unrepented, and unsaved.

~ Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
were you there when they crucified my Lord?
sometimes it causes me to wonder, wonder.

Linda, no, it was not because I didn't agree with your statement, it was because you contradicted your first statement with your second. So I brought it to you attentions. You changed your first statment with the second one and made the first one untrue. Do not go further Linda are you will sin. And you will sin on purpose. Remember, you do not have to like my answers. But if you are a genuine Christian, you must love me. That is not an option. If not a genuine Christian, then do not worry about what I said.
---Mark_V. on 7/9/10


Yes, that would indeed be wonderful. Unfortunately, many people have "heart knowledge" that contradicts what scripture actually says. This means that their "heart knowledge" is dead wrong, and at best a product of a delusion, and at worst a product of a deceitful spirit.

God is not the author of confusion. If he gives people private insights and revelations, they must be consistent with his public revelations - otherwise, such insights and revelations are NOT from God.
---StrongAxe on 7/9/10

MarkV, you are the name-caller. I gave a personal testimony and you called me a liar, that my testimony was false only because it didn't agree with your gnosis.
---Linda on 7/9/10

Kathr, your angry because you cannot compromise Scripture. You cannot stand for me to tell you that it was God who reached out and saved you.
---Mark_V. on 7/9/10

Markv, you twist the scriptures to bend to your own understanding.

God reached out to ALL mankind when He sent His Son to die for OUR/ALL sin. You see, it took Jesus DEATH to bring me/you life.

Therefore I cannot die for my sin. The ONLY way I could possibly save myself is if I could die for my sin and be raised up...but since I'm a sinner, God had to die in my place.The SPOTLESS lamb of God.

Did I save myself by believing Jesus died in my place and rose again? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

Is this fact HIDDEN/a secret to everyone except Calvinists? NO!
---kathr4453 on 7/9/10

Psa 85:7 Shew us thy mercy , O LORD , and grant us thy salvation .

Notice David is praying for "US"....for Israel... so WOW MarkV , you thought only Calvinists were GRANTED a secret salvation!

Well, I believe David's prayer has been extended to ALL now including Gentiles. Not that God needed David's prayer to GRANT Salvation to anyone to begin with.

Praise God for His Mercy that brings us to Salvation!!!!

I am the beneficiary of that GRANT.

---kathr4453 on 7/9/10

Kathr, your angry because you cannot compromise Scripture. You cannot stand for me to tell you that it was God who reached out and saved you. You do not like for God to impose His will on you. It has to be your will that will be done. Your fighting for your free will and yet you cannot find one Scripture that says God gave man a free will.
You say to me,
"What you teach totally negates the TRUE GOSPEL of Salvation to WHO SO EVER WILL believe."
When did I never say that? Whoever believes is because God gave them the faith to believe.
"For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in Him" but also suffer for His sake"
---Mark_V. on 7/9/10

Wouldn't it wonderful if everyone who has the "head knowledge" of the Lord, would move this same knowledge down into their heart so that they could have the "heart knowledge" of the Lord. Yes Papa Jesus, let their head knowledge become alive, so that they may have the life-changing experience of you applied in their heart and in their life. Amen Jesus Amen.
---Eloy on 7/9/10

MarkV, THAT is not exactly the way you say it. No one gets MAD at that. What angers many of us, is that you are saying TOO that God picked certain people's names out of a hat, for no apparent reason,since God is not a respecter of persons.

What you teach totally negates the TRUE GOSPEL of Salvation to WHO SO EVER WILL believe.

We get angry you spend more time telling others their not saved unless they AGREE with your understanding. Get over yourself!!!

Those who preach the truth get out of the way, and are NEVER personally offended. You see, because YOU take things personal...means YOU are teaching out of your own self..flesh!!!

I've never seen anyone whine and cry here more than you!!
---kathr4453 on 7/9/10

Carla, this is what I have found out from answering others. I answer with God's Truth, and those who disagree will argue for a while, not giving any Scripture, just all talk, the more truth I present, the angrier they get. Then comes the calling of names, the aweful things they say, things you would never hear another Christian say to another. And they are the same one's you disagree with on other topics. They see you answer someone else on another subject, and they come in too, because they haven't forgotten that you disagreed with them on something completely different. They are like wolves. This are not real Christians. They talk holy righteous words on one sentence, and hell itself on another. Then use Scripture to condemn you with no shame.
---Mark_V. on 7/9/10

Carla 2: Another thing I found out is that the one topic that really gets them unclued and angrier is when I tell them that it was God who drew them to Himself, that God had such love for them that He reached out and took them out of the path they were in, going to hell, and saved them. That really gets them angry. They fight with everything they have to preserve their free will they say they have. Nothing gets them more mad then that. No way is God involve in this. No way can God impose on their rights. That God would be unloving for reaching out to save them. That He has no right. This are sinful creatures we are speaking about. What logic is that? You notice this are people who believe they are save. This are not unbelievers.
---Mark_V. on 7/9/10


That's just the thing - not everybody will. There are many who will shout "Lord! Lord!" and genuinely believe that they are part of the elect, but Jesus will say "I never knew you!" (Matthew 7:21-23)
---StrongAxe on 7/7/10

I do believe Cuny that you are jealous. God is mine all mine. He has made and made that perfectly clear, when He came to me that warm June afternoon, 2000.. Yes....Jesus' Blood I felt, and I have it, shooting up me. Yes.
---catherine on 7/7/10

Your observation is so true, people get too emotionally wound up by certain subjects that would be resolved if they took time to study the subject carefully rightly dividing the word of God daily instead of spouting off hasty answers.

there are just far too many translations resulting in misunderstandings. You also get people who belive you should think as they do regardless of no biblical evidence of what they are going on about.

If we don't get on down here!!!! it beats me how everyone's going to heaven.

---catherine on 7/6/10

Good question Peter. We are to be edifying and rebuking in confronting sin but not argumentative, for we have no biblical example of anything other than rebuke for quarreling.

I would suggest most of the anger on this blog is probably not from Christians but perhaps religious conservatives, atheists (job one) and secular lefties.
Politics is not Christian so the obsession of some with our political figures and the condemnation of government is probably a clue they may believe in a Christ but probably don't really understand what he was all about.
The conventional wisdom that conservatism goes hand in hand with being evangelical is one of the biggest lies of the enemy to divide and kill our witness to the unsaved world.

Part 2:
Matthew is quoting Hosea 11:1 which in its historical context, refered to the nation of Israel being called out of Egypt in the time of Moses. Yet here the very first Gospel writer picks up this text and declares it "fulfilled" in Jesus Christ. Here Matthew is beginning to reveal a principle he developes through out his book. Remember the first time the name Israel is used in the Bible? It was a spiritual name given to one man, to Jacob (Gen. 32:28). That name had to do with Jacob's spiritual victory. It meant, "Prince of God" Even so in the beginning of the New Testament that same name is beginning to be applied to One Man, to the victorious One, to Jesus Christ, the "Prince of God."

Hosea 11:1 When Israel was a child I loved him and out of Egypt I called My son" In tender words reminiscent of the Exodus from Egypt (Ex. 4:22,23) the Lord reassured Israel of His intense love for her, the compansion of her was aroused (Is. 12:1, 40:1,2, 49:13, Jer. 31:10-14, Zech. 1:12-17) now for reference see Matt. 2:14,15,
" When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed from Egypt, and was there until the death of Herod,". Now hear what this is talking about,
"that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying out of Egypt I called My Son"

Trav, you have a real problem, now you are out to demean what I say even when I quote Scripture.
---MarkV. on 7/4/10

It was not my intention to demean you Oven Boy. You do that just fine all by yourself. The intention was to point out that you take a scripture...add verbage like "GOD has to grant us" when GOD does not have to do anything.
I've got a problem? Not any that scripture witnessing scripture cannot nullify. So throw me another problem.
Psalm 119:21
You rebuke the arrogant, who are cursed and who stray from your commands.
Proverbs 28:23
He who rebukes a man will in the end gain more favor than he who has a flattering tongue.
---Trav on 7/5/10

Trav, you have a real problem, now you are out to demean what I say even when I quote Scripture. God's Word is my witness. The passage I put down, I put down the exact way it is written in Philipians 1:29, if you find fault in the passage, then you have a problem with God not me.
You made a statement that was very damaging, when you said it was ok for the millions of Jews to die in the ovens, and you cannot take it back. Instead of repenting, "you now sound like a married man who sin's against his wife, and when she confronts him, he turns it around, as if she is the one guilty not him.
I hold no anger towards you Trav, not even when you display your sin. And now you cannot function on other things.
---MarkV. on 7/4/10

The Bible tells us that God has to grant us that ability.
"For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should "not only believe in Him" but also suffer for His sake"
People hear the truth and get angry.
---MarkV. on 6/29/10

I've only seen people get angry at your when you butcher scripture, then condescendingly torture everybody with unsupported opinion.
I've suggested putting witnesses in scripture with your scripture....but, then you have to have witnesses in scripture to begin with.

Is it just me, or when anybody challenges John (or is it JOhn or JOHN?) on his conflation of Christianity with culturally conservative politics, he immediately starts accusing them of saying things they didn't say?

Has anyone else noticed this?
---Cluny on 7/2/10

John and StrongAxe: While I feel that a general moral conservatism is good (in terms of morals only), I am concerned that it may lead to us trying to impose either Christian morals on non-Christians (which, while good, may just make them blame God) or lead us to misinterpred Christian morals if there is something WE feel very stronly about

While I hape it does not happen, I am always a bit concerned - I have found it happen in me!
---James on 7/2/10

John, I was not disagreeing with your statement, only answering you, when you said,
"Mike, I haven't got the slightest clue of what you're refering to".
So I answered you and gave you two reasons, by the two words you used to answer him. I was not disagreeing with either of you. I was hoping Mike would tell us why he answered as he did. Of course he doesn't have to.

Something the Liberal cult is attempting to do with Christains. Don't swallow the Pill of the latest trend. You might end up accepting the AntiChrist along with it.

I believe it was a valid point.
---JOhn on 7/1/10

John, I believe it came from when you said,
"Remember our scripture said "I'm Okay, You're Okay"....OH WAIT!!!... that was the Liberal Cult scripture."

The word "liberal" might be the reason. or when you said,

"Yes of course. We should all be nice and Politically Correct"
Here you mentioned "Polictically" correct.
Maybe that was it. Mike, help us out.

Now let's look and see if believers were angry in the Bible. Well lets narrow it down since it seems to appear on nearly all 1700pages.

How about lets just follow the Apostles of the NT. The OT has too much hate and anger and war.

Lets study Paul and Peter.

I like to debate, objectively, esp. using scripture. I may sound like a "know-it-all" at times. I don't like always saying, "I love you, bro or sis" (it always strikes me as not quite sincere when others say it) But I've tried hard to be polite and not demean anybody.

Occasionally, however, the constant negativity here gets to me. This is such a time. I'm going to take a break from this site and spend more time with the happy people in my life.

I didn't say there was a difference between righteous judgment and right jugment. I said There is a difference between righteous judgment (which is always reasoned and mature) and petty childlike behavior. (In retrospect, I should have used the word childish instead).

Jesus said we are to come to God like (innocent) little children. He did not say we are to come to him like tantrum-throwing spoiled brats who resort to yelling and name-calling when confronted with reason and wisdom.

If Christians don't start acting like men and women of God, standing up to the devil in matters, which matters to God. It is not pleasing to God for us to smile, turn ones face in the opposite direction do nothing. Because of fear of what the wicked man may think of you as not being a Christian. [Unbelievers, as God told me this morning, is not all that smart, but, they do have Satan helping them]. True men and women of God, especially prophets, well, we are different from your run of the mill born again believer, But, true men and women of God are not your hypocrites your make believe Christians. We have better just start pleasing the living God. Plain and simple. And I rest my case.

And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

The Bible says a kind word turns away wrath. It is alright to disagree if its done with respect without harshness and judging. Even when a person misunderstands the Bible or is in error and you feel you should offer what lines up with the Bible,then the best way is to Quote Scripture and verse and let the Bible speak for itself. Love suffers long and is kind.
---Darlene_1 on 6/30/10

strongax, there is no difference at all between righteous judgment, and right judgment. Nonbelievers and sinners desire Christians to be censored, to be silent, so that the sinner can continue in their sins without judgment. This will never happen: for the law is, you sin, you die: you obey, you live. And no matter how much a sinner bears false witness against the righteous or even crucifies them, we will rise again and our accusers will be utterly cast into hell and everlasting torments for their wickedness against the righteous.

---miche3754 on 6/29/10

Donna66, I also have an opinion from Scripture. People don't want to know the Truth no matter what. They are in a lost state and they will have every excuse possible for not wanting the Truth. The reason, God has not drawn them to Himself yet. When God draws a person to Himself, that person will want to know the Truth. He will seek it no matter what. God gives him that ability. Because the Word of God tells us that No one lost seeks after God, Romans 3:11. Only believers seek after God. The Bible tells us that God has to grant us that ability. "For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should "not only believe in Him" but also suffer for His sake" People hear the truth and get angry.
---MarkV. on 6/29/10

Strong-axe --People have lots of reasons for not wanting to become Christians.
It's a common excuse that Christians are too black and white, unloving, legalistic, hyporcritical (or all of the above)...wouldn't want to be like them..etc. Nothing new in that. I've heard lots of groups blamed for people not becoming Christian. These are valid points, and especially in regards to this site where controversial subjects are addressed daily.

Some people on this site seem particularly contentious. That's what happens when people (even Christians) have strong opinions. The name-calling must stop. But, IMHO, we are not responsible for the decisions of others.

---Donna66 on 6/29/10

Good question, peter. Many times this forum is a place to debate and devour one another. It seems most people are not interested in growing and learning, but in who can have the last word.

If people are careful and honest, they can learn, but they need to pick who they respond to and how. Many blogs are started on the basis of arguing a point with no apparent approach to perhaps reevaluate their position or to understand better.

I have learned many things here, and some people have great ideas and understand the grace and salvation of God, adding fuller explainations to understanding the things of God.

Be vigilant, for the Devil seeks whom he may devour.

There is a difference between righteous judgment (which is always reasoned and mature) and petty childlike behavior, including name-calling, personal attacks, ubsubstantiated accusations, etc. We see both on these blogs, and while we need more of the former, we need MUCH less of the latter.

When visitors come here and are scared away, it is not by the righteous judgment, but rather by the petty in-fighting. (and as I have seen on at least one occasion, one recent visitor here said he was considering becoming a Christian, but after reading these blogs, changed his mind, since he would rather be in hell than spend eternity with us all.)

I believe we as a nation should grow up. Noone cares about offending the living God, yet, His creative beings are always belly-aching about being offended. And His creative-beings get offended over the silliest things, while the world laughs. Why are unbelievers offended when one of God's own speaks the truth. They believe unless they are getting their ears tickled, tell us how great we are. then you are a false prophet, tell us smooth things, even if it's a lie. yes.....When I was lost I was different, most of the stuff of God just went right over my head. But, anyone who claims to come in the name of the Lord, I had enough sense to not back-talk, or look at them funny. I had more sense than unbelievers of today, and that is no compliment.
---catherine on 6/29/10

strongax, The seeker must be a warrior for God. God does not want softies whom desire to have their egos stroked and to be pampered and be fed baby pablum. The true seeker must learn to crucify their selfish selves and seek out God whole-heartedly. When people wear the feelings on their sleeves and always look to be offended by others, God does not want them, nor do I. Just because a person calls themself a Christian does not mean that they are, you will know them by their fruits. I carry the double-edged sword of God, and judge righteous judgment as commanded, and when necessary I am quick to rightly slay the enemy of the cross.
---Eloy on 6/29/10

Manup, and stop trying to quench the Almighty Spirit of God. Judgment must start at the house of God: and if the righteous are scarcely saved, then where will the sinner and the ungodly appear? The line has been drawn in the sand, which side are you on? Pro-Christ, or Pro-world? you cannot be on both sides, either you are for Christ, or else you are against Christ. If you are that salt which has lost its savor, pray to the Lord and ask God to stir up that Almighty Holy Ghost in you, to revive you once again, get on fire for Jesus and express your love which you have for God, that you may be an effective witness for him.

When I read other blogs, on other subjects, written by unbelievers, I do see a difference. The language here is MUCH better. And most people here do not set out to offend others (it happens enough through misunderstanding anyway). Some bloggers on other sites, are truly vicious towards one another.

But this site would lose much of its value if everyone agreed for the sake of politeness. There are enough situations in real life when we MUST do this. Here, hopefully, we can be more outspoken when we feel strongly about something.

It's a challenge, expressing oneself clearly and politely in 125 words. and helpful when different viewpoints are a stimulus to Bible study and self examination.
---Donna66 on 6/28/10

Because someone disagrees with another poster does not mean they are speaking in anger. You read a lot in your question, Peter. You have no way of knowing that people are angry other than a couple of posters who are obviously mentally ill and not responsible for their rantings. These few people need our prayers.

Many people calling themselves Christians on these blogs resort to angry behavior - name-calling, accusations, personal attacks, delight in the suffering of others, cursing (i.e. declaring the wrath of God on other people), etc. In fact, I see much more of that here from so-called Christians (and devoted believers in Christian and/or quasi-Christian groups, like Seventh Day Adventists, Mormons, etc.) than from unbelievers and skeptics.

I have seen posts from honest seekers disgusted by this, and as a result, abandoned their pursuit of Christianity altogether. Those who drove them away will one day have to answer:
Romans 2:24
"For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written."

"for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God." (James 1:20) There is anger that is right. When God gets angry, He does what makes things better. So, if we are allowing evil and wrong people to decide how we are, I'd say we are wrong. There are people who can misrepresent you and disagree with what you don't even mean, and they can mix up whatever words you give to explain, too. But we can just write what is clear and helpful so the honorable and competent readers can benefit from what we share, instead of getting *decoyed* down, in arguing, to where we can be blasted full of buckshot by the duck hunter!

Sometimes anger flares and there is name-calling on these blogs. It's not the "anger" that's ungodly...esp. since many people feel they are defending scripture and doctrinal purity. But even "enemies" should be treated with respect (if one fails at "loving" them)

A lot of the time, people are just thin-skinned. I agree with Rhonda. Many times I look back to find the insults, the sarcasm, the "rudeness" someone is accused of...but I can't see it at all. Misinterpretation is a hazard of written communication.

There is not room here to give many details about any occurance...thus it is easy and VERY COMMON to jump to conclusions...sometimes way off the mark.

Sorry if you don't like the truth micha... but in this day & age that is the only way to shake the dust "as a testimony against" him.

I CANNOT STAND SWEET HYPOCRITES. Devils in disguise. In any case, God gets angry, real angry. WATCH OUT!

Sounds like you get real angry for him. And, you like to shout a lot too.

If you were there when they came for Jesus I am sure you would have drawn a sword to cut off the soldier's ear. And, Jesus would have healed that soldier and corrected you just like he did his disciple.

There are alot of hurting people today, and hurt can cause hate, anger and resentment. NonChristians posting here will have a worldly temperment and are quick to become angry at the slightest provocation, much like impatient road rage when driving. Also, anger is not a sin, but an emotional response, and when called upon to be angry it should be properly vented appropriately. Some people just do not know how to control their anger when they are provoked. Jesus got angry to the point of driving the people out of the church by whipping them with a whip. We are told to be slow to anger, and to not let the sun go down upon our anger. Praying in and with the Holy Spirit will help us to quench the fiery darts and mean words that people hurl at us.

There is way too much anger between Christians in these blogs. I cannot believe some of the posts I read. We are not helping each other or an unbeliever who may stumble across the site looking for answers.

I understand your position however I have read posts that have called people stupid, mongrels, wished failure on the current President and spewed racism all in the name of Christ. It is a terrible witness and an affront to God. Rest assured He is not pleased.

fay, it seems you want to be in control of this site. I too saw this same post on another subject.

fay, WOF is a false doctrine. So to rip another person apart doesn't prove YOU are correct. It only proves you want to be in control.

Our faith is God through Jesus Christ. Faith is not a power, it is an attitude. When Abraham our father of faith showed us what true faith is, where do you see anything but a humble man believing God and what God promised him. It's God who is faithful!

2 Thessalonians 3:3
But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

How childish fay, to post on several blogs just to be heard.
3 John 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
Matthew 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
2 Timothy 2:16 But shun profane [and] vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

MarkV, you have control of this site & you will pay the penalty someday for your lying about hermeneutics being their own religion & for covering up your lie.

To everyone else, including moderators, etc. I have revealed the truth about MarkV's "religion". There comes a time when everyone must see the truth & the truth here is that this site is overrun by MarkV's religion which is full of unbelief. Even Jesus did not many mighty works in certain areas because of the unbelief. Mat 13:58 So, this is where I shake the dust from my feet as a testimony against your unbelief. Mat 10:14, Mrk 6:11, Lk 9:5.

Elder is right what we should do, always act in Christian love,I'll add,and as members of the same family,the family of God. There is also the fact we should act with manners,showing respect,and allowing others the right which is theirs,to understand and follow what they believe. We should also behave as if we are face to face in person when addressing someone. To me the best way to answer is to give the Bible verses which covers the subject,when possible. The Bible says let not the Sun go down upon your anger. Anger operates,too often,in haste. Be slow to speak and quick to pray.

Anger might be too strong a word. But it is true that there are some very very strongly held views. I see no relaxation on the horizon believes that are deeply embedded and learned on your mother's knee are hard to forget and harder still to change. I hold no animosity towards anyone but I'm very very concerned about some people souls as I believe some may be in danger of hell's fires. And I feel certain others feel the same way about me.

Elder ... Thank you!

God bless

many call themselves christian ...some posting here claiming atheism and other non-christian beliefs - it is an open blog

often people become wrapped up DEFENDING their BRAND of christianity simply subscribe anger to posts from people who don't believe their opinions

I've seen posts from people claiming someone replied to them angrily because they posted scripture ...others just claim an angry response yet I don't see it

...125 word post leaves much to imagination and MUCH can be IMPLIED from others posts

rather than become emotionally entangled in judging someones post as angry just respond with Truth from Scripture and PROVE all things

ONLY TRUTH helps those who The Father in Heaven has called

Can you really read anger in written comments? I suppose we can. What I have learned is that minds and thoughts differ which cause misunderstandings. I always suggest using the e-mail function to explain differences.
I have made the mistake of reading Alan wrong more than one time. We sometimes fight like twin brothers. I believe he is still my brother. When we get together we do get the proper understanding and still love one another. One day we will meet face to face and laugh about our foolishness.
Sometimes we must make a "curt" statement to get the attention of someone who is posting corrupt doctrine. It is to make them and others think with proper understanding.
Rebuke in love..... that is the key.
