I read that righteous anger is permissible  http://biblereasons.com/anger-management/.  Would God approve of anger not rooted from sin?

I JUST read Unoffendable by Brandt Hansen, which touches lightly but well on this topic.  It was recently on sale for 99 cents and hopefully may be again.

A number of systematic theologies, in their respective theology proper sections, discuss anger withing/by/from God, and how that relates to anthropology. I'd suggest reading some of those sections, especially in a systematic in your own faith tradition, for help on the topic.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

You might also pick up Bible references by searching through counseling resources / journals:  Heading:anger OR largetext:anger

Searching for references to John 2:13-16 and parallel passages might be a starting point.

Refinement is searching for righteous in anger articles:

([field heading,largetext,surface] righteous) AFTER 111 WORDS ([field heading,largetext] anger)

You might also want to study total depravity and consider whnether you can be sure that anything you do is not rooted in sin. As always one topic leads to another. It is dangeous to build a theology of what we can do based on what God can do.

These forums are here to help us know how to use the Logos software program. I'm glad to see that so far, most answers have pointed back to using Logos to find an answer to your question.

Here's one more suggestion: use Bible Word Study to look at the words translated "anger" in the Bible. If you don't have familiarity with the original languages right-click on the word "anger" in your Bible (for example, in Ephesians 4:26). Then, from the right side of the right-click menu select the English word "anger." With that word highlighted, from the left side of the the right-click menu select "Bible Word Study." This will show you a lot of information about anger. The first section, is a brief Topic guide, showing you places in your Logos Library that discuss "anger." The next section includes the different original language words that are translated as "anger" in your Bible (which you can use to look up these words in an original language lexicon).

If you do know the original languages then you can use the Bible Word Study tool to look at what other ways the original language word might be translated. To do that, right click on the word and select the original language Lemma (dictionary form - to the left of it will be a sort of circle shaped icon, and when you rest your mouse cursor over it, to the right of the word will be the term "Lemma"). Then from the left side of the right-click menu, select Bible Word Study and peruse the different sections in that tool to study how that word is used in Scripture and the ways it is translated in to English in your Bible.

You may also wish to look at what your commentaries have to say about the interesting juxtaposition of "anger" in Eph.4:26 and Eph 4:31 (an example where in one place anger seems to be permissible, and the other where it isn't). Often in paradoxes like this are the best places to try to understand where the truth is (IMHO).
