Separation of Church and Hate: CivilityStuart Jones 2020 has been quite a year. From the pandemic to riots and protests and the election coming up, there are many people, fueled by anger and frustration, making decisions and posting statements on social media and in our workplaces. We are blaming, shaming and unfriending over all sorts of issues. We are quick to respond to opposing views, but we have to remember the words of James 1:19-20, "be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires." We can also take to heart what the writer of Proverbs 16:32 says: "Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city."
