Angry Preachers

In following Christ closely, we have to be careful that we don't wind up following a man or a small group of men. Proverbs 22:24-25 warns us " Make no friendship with an angry man, And with a furious man do not go, Lest you learn his ways And set a snare for your soul."

Some Christians make a ministry out of blasting away at Christians whom they disagree with. But James 1:20 tells us "for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God." Ripping into other Christians is not the way to follow Christ.

Ecclesiastes 7:9  warns us: "Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests in the bosom of fools."

A ranting, raving preacher might be interesting, but he's leading you away from the direction that God wants you to go.
