Description: Yes or No = Is Being Scared Or Angry Sinful?

A number of people want just a quick answer to their question about the Scripture, the things of God, or this life. Please ask me any question you may have that can be answered with a simple "Yes" or "No" and I will answer it for you and provide Scripture that confirms my answer. I pray that this is a blessing for you.






TRANSCRIPT OF THE VIDEO:

Brother Hicks Speaking: Here is a question from Sucretia Jackson, “Hello brother Hicks, if I get angry and scared sometimes is that sinning?”

[Brother Hicks’ Answer:] YES!

[Text appears on screen]

What we typically call "anger" today is not the righteous disapproval that is sometimes wrongly called "anger," but it is anger based on self, that seeks harm, that causes one to not walk in love, etc. Anger because someone wronged you or did not do what you wanted is selfish and sinful. The Christian denies self, suffers wrong, and yet continues in love without wrath or malice.

“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath” (Ephesians 4:26)

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice” (Ephesians 4:31)

“But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.” (Colossians 3:8)

As far as fear goes, the Bible is clear that we are only to fear God (2 Corinthians 7:1; 1 Peter 1:17; 2:17; 3:2, 15) and not anything else. Fear shows a lack of faith in God and that one does not really trust Him, Why would one fear anything if their faith is in their God and they know "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28)?

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)

“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)
