an emotion of instant displeasure

Anger is part of our original human nature, just as love is. It is not necessarily sinful. It may, however, become sinful when it rises without cause or is excessive or protracted (Matthew 5:22; Ephesians 4:26; Col. 3:8).

God is sometimes angry. This is not a sin, but is merely a result of his righteous displeasure with sin and sinners (Psalms 7:11).
