Approximately 55% of marriages today end in divorce. Unresolved anger issues are one of the most significant underlying causes. The unfinished business around anger is destroying Christian homes. Anger is as much a destructive force in Christian homes as it is in non-Christian ones. In fact, in some cases anger can be more suppressed and oppressive in Christian homes.

You will learn to determine your anger level or another’s anger to see if it is problematic. Tools are given from a Christian point of view that will help you gain self-control in situations where anger is destructive. The goal is to learn to take responsibility for our feelings and express anger in a healthy way. There are methods of behavioral change that then can be used to help us escape the damaging consequences of anger. Anger produces abusive situations and in this course, methods to counter abusive anger are explored. How to deal with faulty Christian beliefs that can escalate anger are taught. These five nights of teaching will increase your awareness of the power of anger in our social lives, work experiences and our family lives.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,

for the Lord has anointed me

to bring good news to the poor.

He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted

and to proclaim that captives will be released

and prisoners will be freed.

He has sent me to tell those who mourn

that the time of the Lord’s favor has come…

To all who mourn in Israel,

he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,

a joyous blessing instead of mourning,

festive praise instead of despair.

In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks

that the Lord has planted for his own glory. Isaiah 61:1-3

 

So if the Son sets you free, you will be absolutely free. John 8:36
