DESCRIPTION

The concept of the cardinal sin of anger appears in various religions, primarily in Christianity, but it also has parallels in other traditions.

Here is how anger is understood and dealt with in different religious contexts:

  • Christianity In Christianity, anger is one of the seven deadly sins. It is considered sinful because it can lead to hatred, revenge and other destructive behaviour. According to this view, anger in itself is not necessarily sinful, but it becomes sinful when it is acted out with malice or retained in the heart, which can alienate a person from God. Moderation and forgiveness are advised as remedies against anger. St. Thomas Aquinas, for example, distinguishes between righteous anger, which seeks to correct injustice, and sinful anger, which is disproportionate or impulsive.
  • Judaism Judaism also sees anger as negative, especially when it provokes conflict or acts of violence. In the Talmud, it is suggested that an angry person can be susceptible to all kinds of sin. Jewish texts often promote patience and control over one’s impulses as key virtues for avoiding anger.
  • Islam Islam teaches that anger must be controlled, as it can lead to irrational decisions and actions that are at odds with Islamic principles of justice and mercy. The Prophet Muhammad warned against anger, advising believers to seek refuge in God against the impulse of anger and to practice patience and calm in times of provocation.
  • Buddhism In Buddhism, anger is seen as one of the three roots of evil, along with desire and ignorance. Anger clouds the mind and hinders the path to nirvana. The practice of compassion, empathy and meditation are emphasised as methods of overcoming anger and other afflictive states of mind.

In all these traditions, anger is treated not only as a personal emotion, but also as a phenomenon that has significant moral and spiritual implications. Controlling anger is seen as essential for spiritual health and for living in harmony with others.
