Is It Possible to Be Angry at God?

Yes, people get angry at God. People can be angry at God for something that happened to them or to someone else that they don’t think God should have allowed.  They can have an expectation that God should have healed someone, or answered their prayers, or not have lost their job, or not allowed some atrocity in life to unfold.

It has been my experience that there is usually a good reason for the anger.  Something happened that wasn’t part of God’s good plan.  From here, some people make a choice to carry the disappointment to blame as a focus of their anger.  When they don’t know who to blame or the events seem so beyond their control they end up targeting God. It happens all the time at both the conscious and subconscious level.

Basic Theology:  Good God and Bad Devil

At a basic theological level, we have a good God and a bad devil.  The famous cartoon of a little devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other shoulder stems from truth.  A person or a human system can be the decisive factor.   People act out of their own free will.  The battle of the ages is getting humans to make a choice to go along with God’s plan or to go along with man’s enemy, the devil’s plan. The next step of the enemy is getting the person to blame God instead of blaming the enemy who is at the root of everything deceived, stolen, destroyed, or killed.
