Mad as Hell

 

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

But there is a victim. Not physically, but psychologically

  • The recipient

  • The perpetrator


Cultural Strategy – Taking the edge off:

  • Political Correctness

  • Hate Speech

  • Righteous Indignation – agreeing with God


Proverbs 12:16 – Fools show their annoyance at once,
but the prudent overlook an insult.

James 1:19 – Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry

Ephesians 4:26-27 – “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.

Romans 12:19-21 –

19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
