Is it always a sin to be angry?

Scripture teaches us that anger is a natural and necessary emotion. It’s not a sin to be angry. It’s what you do with your anger that counts. It matters what you’re angry about.

What do the Bible say about anger?

“Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.” “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

What is the difference between righteous anger and unrighteous anger?

Righteous anger seeks restoration, but unrighteous anger seeks destruction. Jesus wanted to restore God’s temple to its original purpose – to be a house of prayer, not robbery. He may have been aggressive, but it was done to help others and protect His father’s house.
