Managing Anger God's Way
Anger is a God-given emotion, not a behavior. It is neither good or bad, though it excites good or bad behavior depending on our inner spiritual condition.
In this study course, we will learn from Scripture about God’s holy anger. Then we’ll begin the difficult task of aligning our selfish anger and unrighteous behavior with God’s righteousness. This task requires each of us to honestly evaluate our anger tendencies, to remove internal conditions that induce angry feelings, and to learn techniques to manage our anger in a God-honoring way.
If you mismanage anger, this course will guide you into better self-control.
Win the Battle for Your Mind

Dying to Self: Finding Life in Christ

This course will help you expose your flesh, provides four Biblical methods of dying to self, and explores the areas of your life in which you must walk by the Spirit's power.
