Proverbs 29:11

A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.

I Corinthians 13:5

It (love) is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Proverbs 29: 22-23

An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins. A man’s pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor.

James 1: 19-20

My dear brothers, take note of this: everyone should  be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for a man’s anger does not bring about a righteous life that God desires.

Psalms 4: 4-5

In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. Offer right sacrifices and trust in the Lord.

Galatians 6:9

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Psalms 13

How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and everyday have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look on me and answer, O Lord my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death; my enemy will say, “I have overcome him”, and my foes will rejoice when I fall. But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, for he has been good to me.

      I will be putting more of my Bible studies on here.

    God works under slightly different rules: Jeremiah 17:4, Malachi 1:4, Matthew 25:41.

    Really, I’m on board with god, although I’m not as vengeful:

    Micah 5:15, Nahum 1:2, Jeremiah 7:16, 20, Deuteronomy 29:20

    Just recently I wondered what exactly it is that people study in a Bible Study group. Also, which version of the Bible they study.

    The King James Version (from whence I drew my references), for instance, has different words than the ones you list above, some with entirely different meanings.

    So, without knowing the version you are using, I can’t be sure that when you look up those references, you will get the same thing I read.

    There are roughly fifty different Bibles, with various groups claiming their own ‘official’ version.

    For reference:, and

    As an atheist, I’m always curious about how people go about choosing. Also why, if humans are basically deciding what to include, what to exclude, and how a word or phrase of the original text should be interpreted, why people think it is the inerrant word of god.

    More than one group claims, for instance, that the transcription and translation of the bible is guided by god (usually in the form of the holy spirit), but if that’s the case, why then the differences?

    How does one go about sorting things out?

      I would not begin to try to justify how one person chooses what to believe.

      • disperser

        October 21, 2014 at 2:06 pm

        Neither would I . . . but I can justify what I believe (or don’t believe).

        Trust me, I’m not trying to be confrontational, having recently promised myself to avoid arguments based on religion.

        The question is not so much what one believes, but how they arrive at that belief. Again, your belief, not that of others.

        Anyway, Len, I’ve enjoyed following your blog for all these years, but as you can see by the above comment, I don’t ignore stuff easily. The other promise I made to myself is to not subscribe to blogs that post certain things, bible passages being one of them.

        To be fair, I don’t expect for you to subscribe to my blog, as I sometime comment on religious issues and ideas (hint, usually not favorably).

        I’ve enjoyed your writing and illustrations, but for both your benefit and mine, I’ll stop my subscription.

        Good luck to you and your studies, and hope you get to publish your work sometime.

        p.s. the unsubscribe will be effective a few seconds after I post this comment. You need not approve it as it serves no purpose to having my comment appear here, but do as you wish.

        If you want to add something or a response you want me to read, please send it to my e-mail.

        Thanks, and again, best of luck.

    Sometimes we all need a reminder that this world is bigger than us. Thank you for sharing. And yes, sometimes I struggle with my anger to.

      Yeah, I like how Psalms 4:4 allows for us to be angry, but we cannot let that anger to get out of control.
