Audio Teaching: Processing Anger in a Healthy Manner

by Karen Theisen
This teaching is about how to deal with our own anger in a healthy manner. It starts by taking a look at the myth that anger is always a sin. Biblically, there are two kinds of anger — justified (like that which God and Jesus Christ display) and unjustified (like what the Pharisees displayed). Anger is simply an emotion, but how we choose to relate to it determines whether or not it is sin. Ephesians 4:26 is examined to see the “how” of properly processing anger and channeling it into constructive behavior. The teaching also looks at the physiological, psychological, and spiritual prices we pay when we inappropriately deal with our anger. It concludes by showing godly strategies to deal with anger, focusing on Jesus’ example of forgiveness (“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”).
