Jesus´ Sermon on the Mount – Teaching about Anger
Jesus´ Sermon on the Mount – Teaching about Anger (Matthew 5:21-26)
Jesus said; “You have heard that it was told those who lived long ago, ‘You are not to commit murder, and, ‘Whoever murders will be subject to punishment. But I say to you, anyone who is angry with his brother without a cause will be subject to punishment. And whoever says to his brother ‘Raka!’ will be subject to the Council. And whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be subject to hell fire.
“So if you are presenting your gift at the altar and remember there that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and first go and be reconciled to your brother. Then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your opponent while you are on the way to court, or your opponent may hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you will be thrown into prison. I tell you with certainty; you will not get out of there until you pay back the last dollar!”
