I know this is not a religious forum. But there is one issue i have. Is wrath biblically speaking the idea of wishing to strangle or kill people. Like it seems justified anger is ok some cases in the bible but that if you seek the intent of being angry then its bad.

Not a catholic. I dont support theocracy or politicians of power elites who support Islam and Catholicism more or less, since i support the idea of wanting to seek it out for yourself and not to conform a society to become a place of knee caps, which is usually what marxist politicians seems to wish to promote from what i notice

A powerful force in the form of anger. Misplaced, or justified, wrath can be seen as an outlet for most. Within the bible wrath is justified as correction and authority. I'm sure we can take from that in this day and age as well to an extent.

I always thought wrath was basically the desire or impulse to harm another or their position out of spite, out of anger. Things like revenge, payback. In anime terms, continuing the cycle of hatred.

We don't really have that "right" according to God, and it's not our place.

Well, I don't study religion and that's just the impression I've always had.

Ahh god ol Wrath. The Bible is a mish mash of historical, fantastical, fictitious stories, letters, moral plays and hypocrisy to the extreme. There are some historical accounts such as the letters (to the Romans and Corinthians) as well as made up crap (Jonah and the whale). It's all beautifully packaged by some of the best word smiths of the ancient era. It's a great book for good or evil depending on how one would like to twist it.

If we're just going with the Bible then wrath or divine wrath is okay. This isn't according to me but to God. I have my own opinions on it. When God smites whole cities for their sin then he's doing so out of righteous wrath. When you or I smite our enemies then we're just criminals. See how that works? But then we can wade into the deeper waters of is it justifiable? Wasn't our wrath against Nazi Germany justifiable? How about God's wrath against Sodom and Gomorrah? Seems a little overkill to smite a whole city but what about Hiroshima and Nagasaki? It's rarely a good idea to take your wrath out on others whether it's justifiable or not. We can justify just about anything if we try hard enough.

Wrath in it's purest form:

Yep--You may hate your co-worker, but you're not the one who can fire him, and you're not allowed to prank his cubicle just out of frustration that you can't fire him...

It's a sin. I know, nothing else comes to my mind.
