05 Feb Was Jesus ANGRY?
(Watch 5 1/2 minute excerpt) Jesse told about hearing Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer who made the Gosnell book and movie (visit their Facebook page), about Philadelphia abortionist and convicted mass murderer Kermit Gosnell. He talked about the things Gosnell did, and urged people read the book or watch the movie.
Jesse put out a YouTube video from his radio show that said “Jesus Was Not Angry.” Some people in the congregation agreed with Jesse, but most admitted they have anger, but try not to act on it. Many try to control anger, but don’t know how to let go of it.
People watching live on YouTube asked and challenged Jesse’s statement about Jesus and anger through the live chat, asking “Does the bible say anger is wrong?” and, “Why did God give us the capacity to feel anger if we aren’t to use it?”
The gospel of Mark describes Jesus as looking at a certain group of hard-hearted people angrily. But Jesse can act, look, and speak strongly in a way that may appear “angry,” but he does not feel anything within. In Matthew 5:38, Jesus says, “Offer no resistance to the wicked.”
Some of the people watching from home hope to call-in to Jesse’s radio show to talk with him further about God, Christ, and anger.
