What Angers the Lord? | 19 October 2022

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! The scriptures talk about God’s wrath, but what does that actually mean?

Scripture

And in nothing doth man offend God, or against none is his wrath kindled, save those who confess not his hand in all things, and obey not his commandments.Doctrine and Covenants 59:21

Quote

Anger is a feeling of hostility, resentment, wrath, or ire. None of these feelings was present nor, I believe, ever is present with God. I believe God’s actions are interpreted at times as arising out of anger because he applies consequences, including punishment, for violation of his laws. But when we look at God’s punishment, we find that it is just—there is no element of hostility or revenge. This is certainly true in the case of Christ driving the money changers from the temple. He did so with sternness, but his motivation was from a desire to serve God and bless his children, not a desire to harm others.Burton C. Kelly
