T    F     7. Women don’t get angry, just frustrated.

T    F     8. Christian should not get angry.

T    F     9. God knows that sometimes I just can’t control my anger.

T    F    10. As long as I didn’t mean to get so angry, it is not a problem.

 

 

The correct answer to all the questions is FALSE and here is why:

1. Anger is something you carry inside of you. Not showing it doesn’t mean you don’t have it.People can carry unresolved anger for years and it shows up in other ways like physical issues, irritability, etc.

2. Anger is an emotion to work on and contain. It doesn’t magically go away. You can be angry but the Bible says not to sin.

3. These actions actually increase anger.

4. Anger is a God given emotion that Jesus experienced. It is how we handle anger that matters.

5. God wants us to go to one another and work through our difficulties in love and in gentleness.

6. Relationships are often in danger because of unexpressed anger. When anger is internalized, it can lead to eating disorders, anxiety and depression. The WAY you express anger needs to follow biblical guidelines.

7. Ever heard the saying, “A woman scorned…?”

8. This is nonsense. Simply look at the biblical examples of people who expressed anger.

9. God gives you what you need to control your anger–the Holy Spirit operates in you and gives you the power to overcome. No excuses.

10. Intention does not excuse hurting people. If your anger is out of control and you didn’t mean it, get it under control and ask for forgiveness. Repent but change.
