  1. Religions in general, and especially Abrahamic ones, are designed to facilitate manipulation of the population by powerful elites. Therefore, ANGER-which is assigned by status only to the boss – is acceptable for him, and even desirable. But for the flock, only forgiveness is possible… Wipe off – and plow on the owner further!

    I can't help but give a quote about this:

    Artem Pravotorov

    The first sinPride. It is synonymous with pride. Of course, a true slave should not be proud of himself and his merits. And it's hard to control someone who thinks they're something.

    The second sin is Envy. You can't be envious of a slave either, because there will always be stewards towering over him, who have everything that a mere mortal can dream of. Envy is dangerous, because slaves can take it into their heads to take material goods from their owners, and this is not necessary for anyone, right?

    The third sinAnger. Who can a slave be angry with? Maybe at those who live by his hard work, who make him suffer humiliations and beatings? In a fit of anger, a person loses control of himself, and what can he do? Perhaps raise a hand against the owner?

    The fourth sinDespondency. It has a bad effect on the slave's performance. In fact, the sad slave is lost in his own sad thoughts, not focused on his work, and who knows what he will get to in his head? Maybe even understand why he feels bad, and this is definitely not allowed.

    The fifth sinGreed. A greedy slave is unheard of. Besides, what kind of money can a slave have if he has to give it to his masters, because they will be much better able to use it.

    The sixth sin is gluttony. For a true slave, the golden rule of “maximum benefit, minimum cost”should apply. Therefore, he should eat little, and food should be cheap.

    The seventh sin. Fornication. The family is an important social element necessary for the reproduction of cheap labor. Promiscuous sexual relations lead to deterioration of reproductive function due to the fact that it is not enough to produce a future slave into the world. It needs to be properly prepared for its continued existence. In addition, sexually transmitted diseases can significantly reduce the number of employees or reduce their ability to work.

    In any element of any religion, with the right approach, you can see a huge benefit for certain power circles. Is there a ban on alcohol in Islam? Who needs a dysfunctional army of alcoholics? The wheel of Samsara in Hinduism and Buddhism? An ideal lever for controlling society, because even if you are not punished for your actions now, then in the next life you will definitely become a cobblestone on the side of the road. You can continue indefinitely, but is it worth it? After all, everything should have been clear long ago.

  2. God's wrath is absolutely just and its purpose is to help a person, not just to scold or punish them. God's wrath has no anger in it. Human anger is always mixed with malice, the desire for revenge is its driving force.
    Therefore, you should get rid of angry emotions, and it is better to think about how to help the person who has committed an annoying act. Often people do evil not because they want to do it, but because they are deeply unhappy; so being angry at them is like being angry at bad weather…

  3. When you say “gods” in the plural, what do you mean? If you look at Greek mythology, then yes, there the gods are not much different from us, “men”. And they, of course, are inherent in all human passions. But, these are fairy tales.

  4. If you refer to the Bible, it says: “An angry person starts a quarrel, and a quick-tempered person sins a lot.” It turns out that uncontrolled anger causes harm to everyone – both the one who experiences it and the one on whom it is thrown out. In fact, anger is a sign of weakness, not dignity. However, some people think that giving vent to anger means showing strength, but someone who can control his anger is just such a person, and has strength and insight ( Proverbs 14: 29; 16: 32).

  5. Anger is a natural reaction to the wrong thing. When a person sees a weak person being bullied, it's perfectly normal to get angry.

    But just as the need for food can be gluttony, and the need for love can be selfishness, so righteous anger can turn into sinful anger.

  6. James 1: 19-21:
    “Therefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger,
    for the wrath of man does not work out the righteousness of God.
    Therefore, putting aside all uncleanness and the remnant of wickedness, accept in meekness the word that is planted, which is able to save your souls.
    – that says it all: anger in a person does not create the truth of God.
    “God works with truth, His wrath is just, and He endures for a long time.

    2 Peter 3: 9-10:
    “The Lord is not slow in fulfilling his promise, as some consider it slowness; but he is patient with us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, and then the heavens will pass away with a noise, and the elements will be kindled and destroyed, and the earth and all its works will be consumed.
