Why do Christians believe that God is slow to anger?

Some people think God is cross and angry all the time, but Christians believe that is definitely not true. The Bible teaches that God is on people's side; he is patient and kind, he loves people and thinks they are great. The Bible teaches that God does not get angry quickly but is slow to get angry.


The Bible does talk about times when God did get angry, but Christians believe it is really important that everybody everywhere understands that he is a loving heavenly Father who loves everybody everywhere very much.

Sometimes people do things that make God sad such as lying or hurting one another – these things make God sad because doing them is bad for people and those around them. The Bible teaches that when a person says sorry for the bad things they have done or the poor choices they have made God is quick to forgive them and will always help them carry on learning and growing to live his way.
