This came out of a current debate between myself and SDA BobRyan. BobRyan is on record as saying that Scripture does not refer to God as an angry deity: "There is no "Propitiate God" teaching in all of scripture. There is only "God so LOVED that HE Gave" There is only "God was IN CHRIST reconciling the WORLD to Himself". In other words it is the "opposite" of "propititate God" the direct opposite of "appease God" the exact opposite of "appease the angry deity". There is nothing at all in scripture of the form "Christ so suffered that God was appeased and turned away his anger from his victims". Read the whole post. When we read Scripture in its entirety we cannot agree with BobRyan: "From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty" (Rev 19:15). "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of human beings who suppress the truth by their wickedness" (Rom 1:18, TNIV, emphasis mine). I certainly think it is Scriptural to refer to God as an angry God.
