Can anyone think of anyone who lost their temper in the bible?
I'm trying to put together a bible lesson, I was wondering if anyone could think of someone in the bible who lost their temper?
Moses lost his temper and killed an Egyptian.
He lost his temper again and hit the rock.
He lost it also when he came down from mount Sinai and broke the tablets.
Jesus got upset at the vendors in the temple.
Balaam got upset at his donkey because it wouldn´t move and he hit it 3 times.
I CAN MOSES DID WHEN HE HIT THE WALL AND WATER CAME OUT CAUSE HE WAS STARTING TO LOSE HIS FAITH
Here are the names of just a few; God, Jesus, Abraham, Moses, Job, Jacob, Samson, David, King Herod, Jonah, Paul, Peter, Judas, Cain, John, Solomon, Rachel, Martha, Miriam. I hope that helps you a bit. The list goes on and on.
Jesus, Moses, Paul, Peter, Yahweh, David,..whole cloud of them, just goes to show they are not any better than any of us, they were all human, and had the human ones had human passions and desires too
The story of Moses getting angry at the people when they were complaining about not having water, is a very good story for children, because afterwards, God scolds him, saying that he was not representing God's righteousness well in the eyes of the people. From this children can learn that anger is not righteous, and also, that anger is not a Godly attribute... anything to the contrary is an inaccurate representation of God.
Didn't that psycho Jehovah (supposedly) lose his/her/its temper a few times and smite people and things?
Moses, and even Jesus became "righteously indignant" when men allow themselves to be influence to go against the commands of the Heavenly Father; blatant disregard for the laws of God warrant strong, firm but loving rebuke.
Cain is one good answer, as others have mentioned. Also, Joseph's brothers became overly jealous of him as a result of his garnering Jacob's (his father's) love, and tossed him into a well in a fit of jealousy. Jesus himself got frusturated in the temple, for the Pharisees were in fact defiling his Father's and as a result, his house.
Yep, the bible god lost his temper with Soddom and Gomorrah, Adam and Eve, etc. etc. Kind of strange that the perfect Creator created a perfect creation and became angry with his perfection.
every last author and most of the people mentioned in the bible has lost their temper
Jesus, turning over the tables of the moneylenders, Samson tearing down the temple of the Philistines, Moses on seeing the Fatted Calf, God wiping out Soddom & Gomorrah, and earlier condemming Adam Eve, - starting the flood, etc Cain killing Abel . Numerous examples
Seems God lost his temper all the time. God seems to be quite the psychopath. He even warned Moses to keep the people away from the mountain (Sinai) lest he have one of his temper tantrums and kill them all.
Nehemiah got so mad that in Nehemiah 13:25 it says "And I confronted them and cursed them and beat some of them and pulled out their hair."
Israel had just come back from captivity and were starting to make some of the same mistakes after a very short time of being back. Nehemiah was determined not to sit idly by and let Israel fall back into idolatry.

If Adam and Eve were the only two people on Earth, who did their children marry?

In Christianity, do non believers go to hell?What happens to the people that believe in another religion and another God. If the Christian God is the only true God, then are those people damned?

Logical thinking. Quick note about John In Revelations 22:10, Don't seal the prophetic words of this book, because the time is near. Let the unrightous go on in unrightousness; let the filthy go on being made filthy; let the rightous go on in righteousness; and the holy go on being made holy....

Do you know a Christian who has pushed you away from the faith?

I know that it will take all of 5 minutes for the atheists to jump on this, but it doesn't matter. The FACT is that Jesus is God. He came in the flesh, redeemed us through the shedding of His blood. He was crucified, died, was buried, went into Hell suffering our punishment. Jesus Christ certainly...

Is anyone else concerned about dangerous theology?There is a new theology out there that says being good means NOTHING. Jesus died for your sins and all you have to do is believe in him. That's it. Nothing more and nothing less. It has nothing to do with being...
