My son and I have a wonderful relationship. It is very real. That is what makes for a good relationship. If you cannot be honest with a person, your relationship is shallow. For me, with friends, if I cannot be honest, I would rather they leave. It is a waste of time to invest in a friendship if you cannot show your feelings, share what is in your heart and make mistakes and apologize.
My son is Born Again, too. When one has a relationship with a brother or sister in Christ it is very different than a relationship with someone who is not Born Again. If a person is not Born Again, there is a language barrier. There is a heart barrier. God calls this unequally yoked. I can feel this when I talk with a person. There will always be a piece missing with a person who is not Born Again.
That brings me to why I wanted to write this article on righteous anger.
