Topic: Anger (01/24/05)

TITLE: I'm peaceful, but...

I know what it is to have anger
To be angry
But thatís not me
I rarely let my temper flare
Yet things it life can anger me
Like the political nonsense
That flows live a river
But you cannot drink from it
People lying for the gain of a buck
To dislike or hate another party
Simply because they are not your party
Like Moore getting funding from terrorists
To produce his fictional movie 9-11
That really makes my blood boil
If you donít like America
Then get out

Youíve got criminals running the streets
All thanks to some fancy lawyer who doesnít care
As long as he gets paid
If you ask me, if you murder
We ought to get a noose
Same goes for rapists and such
And those terrorists that hate us
Simply because we are a Christian nation
Though it seems we are falling fast

What with the theory of evolution being taught as fact
And Creation being tossed from schools
Prayer and Bibles are even rare in school
And they wonder why so many children
Enter into immoral acts or crime

When even lost our foundations
Our nation was founded by Christian men and women
They wrote the constitution with
God as a major part in our government

But some people canít and refuse
To acknowledge God
They are so afraid they try to take are rights away
They donít understand that others, who donít yet know God,
Want to know Him

Eternity is too long to forfeit

I'd say you've captured anger's portait quite well.

God bless,

Ah, herein lies the tangle of anger; we keep ourselves away from it, while jumping in the middle of it. What a paradox. Praise God for Jesus

These are things worthy of righteous anger and yet anger never won a soul to Christ. In fact God poured out his own anger on his son so we wouldn't have to endure the heat of it. To us he poured out only grace.

It is easy to get angry at the injusticein the world. The OT talks much about God's desire for justice, the NT talks much about merciful justice through Jesus.
