TEXT: Matthew 5:21-22: "Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."

Warren Wiersbe said, "Sinful anger robs us of fellowship with God as well as with our brothers, but it does not put us into jail as murderers. However, more than one person has become a murderer because he failed to control sinful anger."

Under the leadership of Christ, we are called to not only abstain from evil behavior, but to abstain from evil in our hearts and minds regarding murder and anger. While the punishment is obviously not the same, anger makes us just as guilty before God as murder does. As we have seen, before anger leads to murder, it almost always leads to harsh, ungodly language. Jesus says, "Whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."
