Dear LORD be with Rita.

Righteous anger is sometimes hard to not turn into just anger. We need to be calm and speak softly but correct in love and kindness.

This is a great blog. It has great bible verses and knowledge. Forgiveness is the resolution of anger where the penalty for that anger is paid so that the reason for that anger no longer exists. This is what Jesus did for us.

Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.

Lidia, your prayer for me is so beautiful. I won't be here much for a little while but have had results of 2 scans. They have ruled out the 2 worst case scenarios - praise God. Still more tests and more rest is advised because the problem is still there - the cause of it not yet found. I will read the 2 Psalms you mention when I close now. Bless you Lidia and thank you to all who pray for me.

Hello, there a big difference repent for our wrong doings, yes, he is faithfull and just to forgive us 1Jhn.1:9,Lk.11:4 Re: Forgiveness

Anger there IS
a difference -rightfully angry about something.

How YOU HANDLE It - attitude.Ps.15:1,Pro.29:11.A fool gives full vent to his anger.. You have a right to be angry in this for example.Now after you have "pointed it out" you will have to maybe wait /take a break go and get away so the situation does NOT escalate. Sometimes, you could know you are right & have to be the peace maker and quiet things down, and just pray,quietly on your own or even just leave and leave it up to God.

Blessings to all, this question is not directed towards anyone personally. What I mean by Righteous anger is this- When you hear about someone putting a child in the microwave, doesn't that make you angry? When you hear about a newborn baby tossed in a trash can, do you get angry? I believe God does, The anger you feel towards such horrible acts such as this, isn't that Righteous anger? You forgive the person, but this is the type of Righteous anger I am talking about. God Bless friends!
---Cynthia on 11/18/07

WOW, Rebekah!!! thank you...I don't think I've seen you here before . . . welcome (o:

I just thought of how, I'd say, in God's anger I find myself praying straight against Satan's evil spirit which is messing people up > my anger THEN is not directed toward the person, but prayer is for God to destroy Satan and his stupid nonsense of his spirit of evil from those people, howsoever You please, LORD. And forgiveness in prayer goes with love to the people to change them to become love persons (((o:

(1)Everyone should understand that carnal anger or a carnal judgment is not the same as righteous anger or a righteous judgment. We all need to keep in mind Proverbs 15:18.

Which states a wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeases strife. It does not say any where not to be angry but it is informing us not to be wrathful.
---Shawn.M.T on 11/10/07

(2)What makes the anger righteous is when we focus it only at sin and not the soul (person). We slowly and righteously get angry at sin to make sure we are pushing the sin away and not the soul (person), because it is sin that is causing strife not the soul. We are to be first and foremost this way toward ourselves to appease the strife caused by sin?
---Shawn.M.T on 11/10/07

Man is not righteous except in Christ. Man's anger is not righteous but it does envolve judgement. Man's judgement is different than God's judgment so we really can't confuse the two. I don't think man has righteous anger. When we are angry at another's sin, we must forgive or we will not be forgiven of our sins. Man's judgement without anger is man's discernment and it is pure and helpful but what we misunderstand as "man's righteous anger" is not benificial.:)

Do not be partakers, have fellowship or stop having fellowship with them. We partake with other men in their sins, when we live in the same sinful manner that they do, and consent and agree with their temptations and solicitations, (their practice or habit) to sin. Also when we encourage them in their sins, influence them to sin, and do not prevent and hinder, or teach them, as far as it may be in our power to do so.
---Rebekah_Martin on 11/9/07

1 Cor 6:9-11 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
---Rebekah_Martin on 11/9/07

Titus 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God, not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre,

John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

God hears the prayers of those "made righteous" by the Blood of Jesus Christ.

1 Pet 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

Satan tries to take advantage of every opportunity, even righteous judgment and righteous anger, to lead us into sin. Disobedience to God.

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

We can overcome Satans tricks by being strong "in the Lord". We have no strength "of our own". Righteous anger or not, we "must not" let it wreck vengeance on others.
---Rebekah_Martin on 11/9/07

Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.

Whenever "teaching " the doctrine of Christ and "reproving" disobedience to that doctrine and "exhorting" (advise strongly, urge earnestly, caution, warn) results in defensive maneuvering in the form of accusations, complaints, slurs, insinuations and faultfinding, then righteous anger should be expected.

Cynthia I ask myself this daily, Every day I ponder this same question, and honestly, In my prayer this morning I just told God, that this day I must fight. (with some personal issues) that are happening second by second without end.
---Whisper on 11/9/07

Eph 5:6-8 Let no man deceive you with vain words for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

Deceive you with vain words
Let none flatter you, as though such things were tolerable and to be allowed of in Christians, or as though they were not very provoking and offensive unto God, or as though you might indulge yourselves in them and yet escape with impunity.

Never mistake carnal anger for God's anger.
No one knows the mind of God but God.
---Bob on 11/9/07

Even in righteous anger we should always forgive.

2 Cor 2:10-11 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ, Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
---Rebekah_Martin on 11/9/07

Righteous anger comes straight from God. Forgiveness is not thinking about it full time, not talking about it, Don't tell all the neighbors. Never are we suppose to just look the otherway pretend that we don't see. It is displeasing to God. And it is not a sign of meekness either. God's anger, when you feel it you won't mistake it.
---catherine on 11/9/07

Well, I'm not that righteous, that I can be sure yet that my anger would EVER be righteous (o: So, I tend to stay with unconditional forgiving.

But I think I'm getting somewhere. When I am angry about someone because I care about the person who is wrong...this is more like it > I'm angry but busy doing what I can to pray with compassion for the person, instead of just criticizing against the person.

The answer that robin8683 gave is spot on. Forgiveness is for the souls. Righteous anger is for sins. We are called by God to make righteous judgments and forgive one another.
---Shawn.M.T on 11/9/07

If we stay in forgiveness and leave the righteous anger to God, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do", we won't have to repent for judging others.
---Michelle on 11/9/07

Forgiveness is toward a person.
Righteous anger is toward sin.
