    Don’t Let the Sun Go Down

    Six of the sins I listed in the beginning of my series on sin all pretty much go together: murder, strife, malice, anger, rage, and brawling – they are all a progression of one sin. Let me define them all real quick just so we know exactly what we’re discussing. Strife = angry or bitter disagreement over fundamental issues; conflict Malice = the intention or desire to do evil; ill will Anger = a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility Rage = violent, uncontrollable anger Brawling = fight or quarrel in a rough or noisy way Murder = the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another Okay, stay with me here in this…
