So, don’t get mad at us, but we need to have a talk. Everyone seems so anger all the time at all the things, and it’s got to stop. In today’s episode, Dr. J and Cameron sit down and tackle a some Bible-based listener questions before jumping into this timely conversation. There’s a better way to work through the things that anger us. And, prayerfully, through this conversation, we can takeaway a few tangible ways to do just that.
02:59 — I don’t understand where Jesus overturned the tables and was upset — saying the people were making the Temple a den of robbers. What were they doing wrong exactly? Weren’t they selling doves for sacrifices? Why was He so upset?
07:24 — If it’s wrong to sell things within the church, why do so many churches put things for sale like coffee or t-shirts or books? Is that wrong?
11:12 — We read in Exodus 4:24, “At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses and was about to kill him.” So, God was still angry with Moses? Why would the Lord kill Moses? Was the Lord holding onto His anger?
13:51 — How can we know for sure when our anger is righteous indignation or when our anger is motivated by selfish ambition?
20:12 — A lot of our anger is brought on by offense. How and when should we overlook an offense?
24:54 — We read in Ephesians 4:26, “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry…” What does it mean to not let the sun go down on your anger? Is this like a literal command?
28:03 — How do we protect our observations and feedback from turning into negativity, grumbling, and complaining?
30:40 — So, how do we process our anger in a way that honors the Lord?
