Titus: Because of His Mercy


  • Why are cretans 'always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons'? Are they the only people who fit such descriptions?
  • Who are 'those who reject the truth'?
  • What does Paul the Apostle mean in his constant emphasis to Titus; 'You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine'?

Today's philosophy of tolerance for all it's viewpoints, that no one is declared incorrect, that the same God is everyone's god, has no place in this vital letter. Paul tells his young friend Titus, 'Encourage and rebuke with all authority'. People are 'to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient.' Salvation and the believer's lifestyle are never the result of good works or any other human merit system. The overwhelming thrust is God's mercy and grace, for it (He) is our teacher and our life.
