Q/A Series: Is Anger a Sin?

Today on our Question and Answer Series, we have a question asking "Is Anger a Sin?"


Is Anger a Sin? - New Man Movement


Anger is not a sin. It is what you do with it that becomes sin.

Ephesians 4:26-27 says, When angry, do not sin; do not ever let your wrath (your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down. Leave no [such] room or foothold for the devil [give no opportunity to him].

These verses don’t say, “Don’t get angry” or “If you ever get angry.” They say, “When [you are] angry.” This means that we can get angry at times and that feeling of anger is not a problem. The problem comes when we act on those feelings.

Also, as we grow in Christ, the Holy Spirit works in us to control our actions and attitudes. Issues like anger can thus become minimal and go off completely with time. The more we yield to the rulings of the Holy Spirit, the lesser we engage in actions like anger.
