Anger management, including Christian anger management, is a difficult issue to address without sounding accusatory. Be
assured right from the start that we're not here to judge but rather
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of
an enemy are deceitful.
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the
sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more
favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

What we must do first is seek the origin of anger. Most do try and
reason things out afterward, but the conclusion they seek is
justification rather than Truth. They actually manipulate their own
soul and believe that there has to be some reason, or some person,
other than themselves who is the cause for our anger.
In Truth, it is and always will be ourselves that allowed this plague
of the mind and heart to enter. The simple reason we get angry is
that we feel someone or something wronged us. Therefore, it is a
selfish reaction. Let's prove this Christian Anger Management point.
If a person at a restaurant called you a foul word after you
accidentally bumped into them, one of the first things that comes to
your mind, is who else heard or saw that. If you are in a chat room
and someone disagrees with you openly, one of your first reactions is
what are the people thinking. Why is that? Simple ... It is pride.
We can actually trace the blame of anger back to a time, when an
angel named Satan, who out of selfish pride and jealousy toward God,
con-vinced Eve to disobey God, by promising her this and that
and pride was created. She then passed the deceit on to Adam, and as
a result we all inherited what is called Original
So, in all Truth, the thing that we can trace the blame for our anger
to is selfish pride. Now we have identified the source of the anger.
So what? So, we have found out that we're not to blame, and others
are not to blame either. It is not our fault that pride exists. But,
we did choose to get angry and when we choose to continue to
entertain the pride. That's when we become responsible for it, this
may be difficult to digest, especially when you are knee deep in
anger. But, it is sin.
In Truth, unless resolved, it continues to grow within and is a
foundation for even more sin. However, knowing what the source of the
sin is, you can more effectively deal with it. Your anger isn't going
anywhere if you don't deal with it properly, and the best way to do
that is to learn about it and it's origin.
An important thing to note at this point is that even though the
devil uses anger as yet another method of encaging our soul. There is
what we will call Holy anger. How dare this be said? Jesus got angry;
13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up
14 And found in the Temple those that sold oxen and sheep
and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when He had made a scourge of small cords, He drove
them all out of the Temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured
out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said unto them that sold doves,
Take these things hence; make not my Father's House an house of

So, we get to use this as a reason by which to allow anger to reign
within our minds and hearts? Not a chance. The following words should
be echoing through your mind and heart if you will hear the Holy
Spirit ... Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord.
To me belongeth vengeance and recompense; their
foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at
hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God,
to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself.
Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the Lord, and He
shall save thee.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place
unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay,
saith the Lord.
For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will
recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His
Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will
render to the man according to his work.

Now, there are some out there that are just itching to show me
scripture that they interpret as saying that Christians have the
right to use anger against another soul. So let me just address that
now. There may be times when God, who uses us as vessels, will reveal
His anger through His vessel as to reach another soul but that is not
what we are typing about, now is it? We are looking into uncontrolled
anger which has its roots in selfish pride. It is easy to distinguish
the difference. One seeks to glorify you and the other seeks to
Now that we have that understood, let's talk about remedy. You have
probably heard many different theories about Christian Anger
Management. For example "Get in touch with those feelings". "Express
your anger verbally and in a controlled environment". "Release your
anger through exercise". Get a prescription for whatever it is that
everybody's taking nowadays, but watch out for the bazillion side
effects that you might get, while you're trying to treat one symptom.
The list goes on.
Notice that each suggested remedy requires that you accept the anger
as commonplace and natural. We are not taught by God to do so but
rather to resist it. We are going to deal with all those theories,
with one little Scripture that the Apostle Peter wrote:
1 Peter 5:8-9
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom [you should] resist steadfast in the Faith, knowing
that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are
in the world.
What does that mean? It means ... Because the devil walks around like
a lion on the prowl, looking for souls to devour. You should resist
him with strong Faith, and know that the rest of your fellow
Christians in the world are potential prey of his as well.
What's that got to do with anger and why we should resist it?
Remember that earlier, we traced the blame of anger to pride which
was introduced by the devil. Now, isn't anger a perfect weapon for
the devil to use if he knows it becomes sin if you accept it and
allow it to grow?
The Truth is that God is the only judge of a person's guilt or
innocence, but ask yourself, when you're angry, don't you just feel
like something does not feel right? Almost like you are inside of a
plastic bag. Do you feel close to and in harmony with the Lord when
Make no mistake, nobody is trying to condemn you here ... Anger is a
tough thing to conquer if you don't understand it, and believe me,
the devil takes advantage of the fact that most don't know how to
manage it ... Because they don't know that he's the one serving it
up! It's a trick ... Just like all the rest of his tricks ... And
it's all part of the battle of spiritual warfare that each of us face
every day of our lives. It's the devil, trying to win your soul away
You're not going to believe how much the Bible talks about anger, and
how to deal with it, but I'm going to show you scripture today that
will change your attitude from "Anger is a normal emotion that
everyone feels," to "Anger is a temptation of the devil," and that
Truth will set you free of the anger that you've been accepting as a
Anger, like any other habit, is something that you have to devise a
strategic plan to eliminate. It's not something that you planted
there to begin with. It's not something that you want to keep. It is
just sin, conjured up by the devil, that God does not want you to
Let's talk about some of the reactions that are related to anger.
Some of the other weeds in the Pride family.
Jealousy ... Greed ... Revenge ... Scorn ... Wrath ... Rage ... Hatred
Ugly are they not? These psycho babbling professionals who claim that
you have to take the bull by the horns and tackle that anger head on
... Don't believe it. If you have ever been to a non-Christian based
counseling program of any kind, you will be misguided into thinking
that these reactions are "normal" and that you must "get in touch"
with those feelings. Likewise when people lose a loved one, they're
encouraged to "get in touch" with their grief. By the way, that
phrase get in touch means "allow and accept".
Christian Anger Management Bible Study Message
Free Anger Management Counseling Online Seeking Hope
My friend, the Lord, your Physician, never said that! Quite the
opposite is what the Word of God says. We'll take a look at the Truth
in scripture in just a minute, but first, let's open our mind to
something. When you think of anger, you think of it being a strong
emotion. If you're a person who is inclined to submit to anger, you
do have the strength to fight it.
But consider this anger management concept ... Do you have to fight
it? Doesn't fighting it suggest that it's some kind of addiction and
isn't addiction a condition that people retain because they lack the
strength to say no to something? Keep this in mind. Anger is not the
kind of addiction that requires withdrawal. It is a habit, however,
and all you need to do, is replace anger with a different reaction
whenever it rears it's ugly head.
The new reaction that you want to practice in the place of anger, is
controlling your thoughts. Controlling your thoughts is a command in
the Bible. We are taught to Renew
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and
acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
This Spiritual procedure is happening with or without your knowledge
of or belief in it. If you are not controlling your thoughts, your
thoughts are controlling you and your spirit is on an emotional
He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is
broken down, and without walls.
Think about this Christian Anger Management Bible study question ...
Is the Lord's anger too slow for you? You may grow impatient waiting
for the Lord to recompense your offender(s), but there are also other
things to consider. Have you ever been an offender? Has anyone ever
grown angry with you? As a Christian, aren't we supposed to hope for
every soul to turn to the Lord and be saved, not punished? Don't we
want God's anger to be slow when we're the ones who may be the
If we're made in God's image, shouldn't we strive to be like Him?
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in
Christian Anger Management Bible Study Warning
Free Anger Management Counseling Online Danger
Now, let's slow down just a little. We do not want to miss that
'plenteous in mercy' part. If you choose to practice mercy
(forgiveness) the way Jesus taught, you will find that anger will
lose all of it's power. The adversary hates mercy and Grace. The
Apostle Paul is an advocate of turning your anger into forgiveness:
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour,
and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving
one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
The Bible warns us that if you're enthusiastic about the Lord
punishing your offender ... Things may just backfire!
17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine
heart be glad when he stumbleth:
18 Lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him, and he turn
away His wrath from him.
Have you ever been doing something, and a thought pops into your head
about something that happened some time ago? Then you think about it
for a little while and it makes you angry. And you think about it
some more, and you find other reasons why it makes you angry. And the
more you think about it, the angrier you get! Pretty soon, you're
thinking about things that happened years ago that are done and over
with that you're still angry about, and getting even angrier!
Jealousy, covetousness, pride ... These are just a few of the reasons
why we get angry, but it's so important to search for the source of
these emotions. Friend, these can only come from one thing and they
are certainly not godly fruits, so you can only conclude that they
come from the world ... Which belongs to the adversary.
Sometimes it is not people we get angry at. But, pride is still the
root. If you don't have as much money as you'd like, if you wish you
looked different, if you desire more fame or recognition of some
kind. These are all things that can initiate anger in us. Sincerely
search your heart and decide if the reason you're pursuing any of
these things to glorify God ... Or You. It's a good bet that IF they
would glorify God, He would grant them to you. So perhaps thinking
differently would help.
David wrote about Anger of his Psalms. I'll give it to you in
layman's terms: Forgive us God, because we are very angry. Our soul
is angry at those who don't have to work as hard as us, and those who
3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we
are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of
those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
Christian Anger Management Bible Study Truth
Free Anger Management Counseling Online Through Prayer
There's a great lesson here:
Pray For Your Anger to Be Removed
We must change our concept on how we believe we as Christians are to
be treated as to be able to change the anger habit from within. We
must choose to remember that those we encounter are caught up in the
same trap of the mind set by our common enemy. Don't let the devil
get you with the boomerang effect of hatred. If someone is angry with
you, that doesn't mean you have to be angry back. These are a few
things that Jesus taught us about hate:
38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an
eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but
whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away
thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would
borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that
curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them
which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in
Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good,
and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have
ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more
than others? do not even the publicans so?
22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you and when
they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you,
and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy
for, behold, your reward is great in Heaven: for in the like manner
did their fathers unto the prophets.
Even when Jesus was being crucified, He forgave ...
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they
know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast

God is so cool. Never forget that God protects and awards the
underdog if they're humble.
21 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if
he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and
the Lord shall reward thee.
We all want God to stick up for us when we're hated. If you refrain
from hate, and trust in your Father to take care of things that cause
that emotion in you, He will laugh at them, and He will fill your
heart with laughter too:
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon
him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for He seeth that his day
20 Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither
will He help the evil doers:
21 Till He fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with
22 They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and
the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that
endureth to the end shall be saved.
So why wouldn't God treat us accordingly if we hate others?
Answer: He will.
Remember earlier when we said that anger could be detrimental to the
final destination of your soul? Take a look:
21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time,
Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is without a cause
shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his
brother, Raca [fool, worthless, good-for-nothing], shall be in danger
of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in
danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and
there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way;
first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a
furious man thou shalt not go:
25 Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.

Drunk Christian Anger Management Bible Study
Free Anger Management Counseling Online Program
The emphasis above on drunkenness is for a reason. Some people get
downright angry when they get drunk. Wine is supposed to make the
heart merry, but for those who cannot control their thoughts and/or
consumption it can have adverse effects, and the adversary would just
love to deceive you when you are in a physical state that may allow
him to win your soul. If you find that drinking does anything other
than make your heart merry, be smart and lay off of it, for your own
good, for the good of your soul, and for the good of others.
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived
thereby is not wise.
Let's talk about something very important as we sojourn along in our
Christian Anger Management Bible journey ... Something that people
don't take seriously enough. What happens when you get angry with
God? You can't hide from Him:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:
for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of
them that hate me;
6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me,
and keep my commandments.
9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, He is God, the
faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love
Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations;
10 And repayeth them that hate Him to their face, to
destroy them: He will not be slack to him that hateth Him, He will
repay him to his face.
28 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming
in, and thy rage against me.
29 Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up
into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my
bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which

inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without
natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have
pleasure in them that do them.
Christian Anger Management Bible Study Concerns
Free Anger Management Counseling Online Things to Beware
Whew! Sounds pretty serious doesn't it? Now, you may be thinking that
you can get mad at God without hating Him, but think about this very
very carefully ... Don't do it. Who would want to be out of God's
good Graces for even one instant? Don't take that chance. Besides,
He's the good guy. The devil has CON-vinced you that you should be
angry with God.
Here's an interesting thing to ponder on ... Do you find that when
you're angry with God, you find it much easier to be mad at other
people as well? What about when you're mad at a person, do you find
it much easier to get mad at God?
The next time you're walking around with a chip on your shoulder,
look again ... It's not a chip, it's an imp.
Some things never change. God has always been against hatred:
17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou
shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him.
18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the
children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself:
I am the Lord.
Another very big advocate of not hating your brother, was the Apostle
John ... He stresses the importance of this repeatedly:
1 John 2:9-11
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his
brother, is in darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and
there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and
walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that
darkness hath blinded his eyes.
1 John 3:15
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no
murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
1 John 4:20-21
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is
a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can
he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from Him, That he who
loveth God love his brother also.
If you have hatred in your heart for someone, and you lie about it,
you will be found out, and not only by the person you harbor hatred
for, but by the entire congregation!
He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a
slander, is a fool.
24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up
deceit within him;
25 When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are
seven abominations in his heart.
26 Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall
be shewed before the whole congregation.
