I am here, Jesus.
I come to deliver a message on righteous indignation.
Now, this emotion is different from anger because there is a difference in purpose. When the Hebrew prophets fulminated against their people, their motive was pure love. Another motive was to speak for the Lord. There was really no narrow ego agenda involved. Yes, they said things that sounded judgmental, and perhaps they were. But it was not for the purpose of putting down; it was to motivate the people to change.
Righteous people cannot stand hypocrisy and injustice. They burn in them, and the only way they can find release is to express righteous indignation. When this emotion is expressed, it is entirely different from anger, for anger tears down,whereas righteous indignation seeks to uplift.
