All Anger Comes From Fear

All anger comes from fear. I’ve heard this several times. And the true is, when you get angry about something you can trace it back to something you fear whether imaginary or real. You get angry at your significant other because he or she is late getting home. Your fear could be that he or she is having an affair. Or maybe it’s just the fear that something may have happened to that person. You get angry because your computer isn’t working right. The fear maybe of losing things on the computer that you want to save. Or you may fear having to buy a new computer. The next time you get angry, think back to what it is your really fear. Here a nice little song written by John Bettis and Richard Carpenter sung by Karen Carpenter. I believe the background vocals are Karen’s which was overdubbed.

To say all anger comes from fear sounds right, because it could not come from love, or could it? God is love, and we could assume that his son was made of the same love too, I guess, and yet in the bible Jesus is depicted as being angry at times. Mark chapter 3, verses 1 to 6, says it plainly in black and white, that Jesus was angry. "Another time he went into the synagogue, and a man with a shrivelled hand was there. Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath. Jesus said to the man with the shrivelled hand, "Stand up in front of everyone." Then Jesus asked them, "Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they remained silent. He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus." What was Jesus fearing then here? Did Jesus really ever get angry, or fear anything whilst he lived upon the Earth then? Anger and fear, and any other emotion under love, comes from love too, because love is the only real energy, but we can channel it down certain pathways of our minds, and so it gets pressured then to become something that we want it to become, even as then it steps further away from full love, and becomes more our own ego's gratification for something that we want, or something that we fear in our minds. Fear can be a blanket over love, when we hold onto fear in our minds. Living entirely from love in a human body is almost impossible though because of the inbuilt tendency of sin to become involved, unless you surrender your life into full serving of God. "Perfect love drives out all fear," says the Christian bible. "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." This verse is quoted from the book of 1 John, chapter 4, verse 18. To me though Jesus did not get angry as this above text implies or says. I think that he merely felt sorry for their little understanding, becoming vexed at the difficulties of getting past man's mind, placed their by Satan, and reaching them into their hearts, but he knew that he could not force himself onto anyone, as accepting the way of love, must always be a free choice for all people.
