Is Anger Always a Sin?

“A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.” Proverbs 15:18

God’s anger, referred to as wrath, is His holy and perfect reaction to sin. God does not sin in His anger. His anger is always justified, and throughout the Old Testament, His wrath was meant to draw His people back to Himself. Human anger, the focus of this article, is widely staked in our prideful justification. Although it is possible for us to have a righteously angry reaction to sin, most human anger rises up and reacts as a result of it. Proverbs 16:32  reminds us, “Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.”
