During this Session, we are going to define anger and its causes:
Four Classes of Anger Defined:
Webster’s definition of Anger: 1) a feeling of extreme displeasure, hostility, indignation or exasperation toward someone or something; rage, wrath. 2) Trouble, pain, and affliction.
Resentment – ill will and suppressed anger generated by a sense of grievance.
Anger – a feeling of extreme displeasure, hostility, indignation or exasperation toward someone or something; rage, wrath. 2) Trouble, pain, and affliction (as stated above).
Rage – closely related to the sense of intense, un-contained, explosive emotion. Rage appears to be more justified by circumstances. For example, when one feels indignation at seeing the mistreatment of someone or something dear and worthy.
Fury – more destructive
Wrath - fervid anger that seeks vengeance or punishment on a large scale.
What Makes Us Angry? – Part 2B (Continued)
Frustration (usually in the present) – examples:
- Something does not go your way
- You can’t do something you want to do when you want to do it
- Can’t watch what you want on TV
- You want to take a shower but there is no water
- You want to be alone but people will not leave you alone
Fear or Anxiety – we feel threatened or anxious
- Fear – you are threatened physically or emotionally. This can also be you are afraid
you will be made to look like a fool.
- Anxiety – you anticipate a problem as if it had already happened. Anxiety is a
disturbed state of mind produced by real or imaginary fears. It is overcame by
trusting in God (Ps 37:1-5 – read); prayer (Phil. 4:6); God’s care (1 Peter 5:6, 7).
