Holy Anger?


I remember reading somewhere about holy anger? But I’m not really sure what’s it all about.

There are so many things around us that can incite anger in us. But when can it be considered holy? Or justified?


John 2:

13] The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14] In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers at their business.
15] And making a whip of cords, he drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables.
[16] And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; you shall not make my Father’s house a house of trade."

17] His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for thy house will consume me.”

**Here is the verse they usually refer to when discussing holy anger. **
