    Eph 4:26 says Be angry and sin not...

    The Wycliffe commentary states we are to have "Righteous Anger"

    What would consider righteous anger?

    We studied this in SS last week and anger is one of many instinctive responses that regulate our interactions with one another. Anger is good when in response to unfairness. It tells us and others that a fairness issue has been raised a) in our personal conscience (dispensation #2*) or b) in the collective conscience (dispensation #3, human gov't). It is at that point that men are to reconcile their differences fairly and biblically and avoid repeating them.

    * I believe that the dispensations are "the 7 spirits of God" --- 7 horns whereby we see His authority and 7 eyes whereby we know He is judging us. Rev 5:6 Many people look high and low for the 7 spirits. I believe my view answers to their search.

    Jesus making a whip and chasing out the money changers comes to mind.
    Anger is an emotion it's natural. You have it, I have it , God has it.
    Like all emotions they have to be kept in check. Under control.
    Get angry at sin but don't get angry when you can't find a parking place.:saint:
