The only thing evil can’t stand is forgiveness. (Fred “Mister” Rogers, late television personality)

We see evil in lots of ways—anger, bullying, verbal abuse, and more. Have you ever noticed that when you respond to such behaviors in the same manner, it only escalates the madness? But if you confront an angry person with a soft answer, it most often startles them and they hardly know what to do next. Forgiving evil conduct can defuse some tough situations.

A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. (Proverbs 15:1)

The founder of God of Hope used to experience anger towards God. Learn how he overcame it in his book.
