Donald Trump’s anger seems to be an issue with some, citing him as a “bully” and questioning his “temperament.” But that anger is exactly why many (including myself) like him. He’s expressing an anger that many feel about the corrupt, ineffective and blind government. So then why did God invent anger? Although it can be abused for selfish reasons, here is the good side of anger. Here is my definition. ANGER IS TO CORRECT INJUSTICES WHEN THE PERPETRATORS WON’T CORRECT THEMSELVES.
God is angry many times for that reason, and even to the point of destroying the entire human race except for Noah and his family. Even Jesus got angry. For example when he got angry at the temple. John 2:15, “He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables.” He also was very cutting in his descriptions of the corrupt religious leaders of the time. Matthew 12:34, “You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good. For out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.” And in Mark 3:5, “Jesus looked around at them with anger and sorrow at their hardness of heart.” Matthew 23:27-28, “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.”
So therefore we should appreciate the anger of Donald Trump instead of him being a wimpy, ineffective candidate of the past. Don’t misinterpret passion for anger. There is justifiable anger which, though unpleasant, is needed to get things done.
“Be angry, yet do not sin.” Ephesians 4:26
