Quoting Quiverfull: No Anger At God?

Quoting Quiverfull: No Anger At God? March 26, 2013

by John Piper from his book “The Momentary Marriage – A Parable of Permanence” pages 150 – 151

Anger devours almost all other good emotions. It deadens the soul. It numbs the heart to joy and gratitude and hope and tenderness and compassion and kindness.

God has never done anything that should legitimately cause anger in any of His children. We are never warranted in getting angry at God. Ever.
