Book 56 Titus 001:001 Paul, a bondservant of God and an Apostle of Jesus Christ for building up the faith of God's own people and spreading a full knowledge of the truths of religion, 001:002 in hope of the Life of the Ages which God, who is never false to His word, promised before the commencement of the Ages. 001:003 And at the appointed time He clearly made known His Message in the preaching with which I was entrusted by the command of God our Saviour: 001:004 To Titus my own true child in our common faith. May grace and peace be granted to you from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Saviour. 001:005 I have left you behind in Crete in order that you may set right the things which still require attention, and appoint Elders in every town, as I directed you to do; 001:006 wherever there is a man of blameless life, true to his one wife, having children who are themselves believers and are free from every reproach of profligacy or of stubborn self will. 001:007 For, as God's steward, a minister must be of blameless life, not over fond of having his own way, not a man of a passionate temper nor a hard drinker, not given to blows nor greedy of gain, 001:008 but hospitable to strangers, a lover of goodness, sober minded, upright, saintly, self controlled; 001:009 holding fast to the faithful Message which he has received, so that he may be well qualified both to encourage others with sound teaching and to reply successfully to opponents. 001:010 For there are many that spurn authority idle, talkative and deceitful persons, who, for the most part, are adherents of the Circumcision. 001:011 You must stop the mouths of such men, for they overthrow the faith of whole families, teaching what they ought not, just for the sake of making money. 001:012 One of their own number a Prophet who is a countryman of theirs has said, "Cretans are always liars, dangerous animals, idle gluttons." 001:013 This testimony is true. Therefore sternly denounce them, that they may be robust in their faith, 001:014 and not give attention to Jewish legends and the maxims of men who turn their backs on the truth. 001:015 To the pure everything is pure; but to the polluted and unbelieving nothing is pure, but on the contrary their very minds and consciences are polluted. 001:016 They profess to know God; but in their actions they disown Him, and are detestable and disobedient men, and for any good work are utterly useless. 002:001 But as for you, you must speak in a manner that befits wholesome teaching. 002:002 Exhort aged men to be temperate, grave, sober minded, robust in their faith, their love and their patience. 002:003 In the same way exhort aged women to let their conduct be such as becomes consecrated persons. They must not be slanderers nor enslaved to wine drinking. They must be teachers of what is right. 002:004 They should school the young women to be affectionate to their husbands and to their children, to be sober minded, pure in their lives, 002:005 industrious in their homes, kind, submissive to their husbands, so that the Christian teaching may not be exposed to reproach. 002:006 In the same way exhort the younger men to be discreet, 002:007 and above all make your own life a pattern of right conduct, having in your teaching no taint of insincerity, but a serious tone, 002:008 and healthy language which no one can censure, so that our opponents may feel ashamed at having nothing evil to say against us. 002:009 Exhort slaves to be always obedient to their owners, and to give them satisfaction in everything, not contradicting and not pilfering, 002:010 but manifesting perfect fidelity and kind feeling, in order to bring honour to the teaching of our Saviour, God, in all things...
