Why Jesus: Jesus Stands Against Hate

The anger we feel towards someone or something often seems so organic, and it looks like we can justify it because we continue to toss the anger around in our own minds. We continuously think about how they deserve our anger, or that the problem will just pass away, so we never honestly deal with it. This anger that we let build inside is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die—we feel so justified in our anger, but it is silently killing us from the inside out. Jesus came to reveal that the anger we feel reaches deep into the heart and causes worse damage than murder itself, and he leads us into a greater understanding of what it means to be unified and walk in grace.
