“The Revelation 19 picture of Jesus” by Mark Driscoll

“The Revelation 19 picture of Jesus coming again as a warrior with a tattoo down His leg and a sword in His hand, riding on a white horse to slaughter evildoers until their blood runs through the streets like a river, is hardly consistent with the common false portrait of Jesus that lacks any sense of righteous anger.”

–Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears, Death by Love: Letters from the Cross (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2008), 127.

“Righteous anger” by Martin Luther

“I have no better remedy than anger. If I want to write, pray, preach well, then I must be angry. Then my entire blood supply refreshes itself, my mind is made keen, and all temptations depart.”

–Martin Luther, What Luther Says: An Anthology, Vol. 1, comp. Ewald M. Plass (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1959), entry no. 74, 27.
