Why does the spelling look unusual?
Paul a seruant of God, and an Apostle of Iesus Christ, according to the Faith of Gods Elect, and the acknowledging of the trueth which is after godlinesse,
In hope of eternall life, which God that cannot lie, promised before the world began:
But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed vnto mee according to the commandement of God our Sauiour:
To Titus mine owne Sonne after the common faith, Grace, mercie, and peace from God the Father, and the Lord Iesus Christ our Sauiour.
For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordaine Elders in euery citie, as I had appointed thee.
If any be blamelesse, the husband of one wife, hauing faithfull children, not accused of riot, or vnruly.
For a Bishop must be blameles, as the steward of God: not selfewilled, not soone angry, not giuen to wine, no striker, not giuen to filthie lucre,
But a louer of hospitality, a louer of good men, sober, iust, holy, temperate,
Holding fast the faithfull word, as hee hath beene taught, that he may bee able by sound doctrine, both to exhort and to conuince the gainsayers.
For there are many vnruly and vaine talkers and deceiuers, specially they of the circumcision:
Whose mouthes must be stopped, who subuert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthie lucres sake.
One of themselues, euen a Prophet of their owne, said: The Cretians are alway lyers, euill beasts, slow bellies.
This witnesse is true: wherefore rebuke them sharpely that they may be sound in the faith;
Not giuing heede to Iewish fables, and commandements of men that turne from the trueth.
Unto the pure all things are pure, but vnto them that are defiled, and vnbeleeuing, is nothing pure: but euen their mind and conscience is defiled.
They professe that they know God; but in workes they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and vnto euery good worke reprobate.

Paul put a lot of faith in Titus to leave him at Crete. Titus must have truly been a fervent, upright man in that day to stand up and tell the Cretians they needed to turn from their ways. America needs to turn from this Cretians Sodom and Gom... way. Where were the bold folks of God when our leaders decided to allow such immoralities today. Be bolder, preachers but live peacefully....

Truely if we learn to follow Jesus christ teaching and find out for ourselves that His blood was spread for the whole world so we are all save by his blood.and we all should stand from and our faith

Titus 1 encourages us all to stay focus and be devoted followers of Christ. It 's tough to be godly in a world that promotes selfishness and unrighteousness. However we have the advantage of the Christ strength in us to overcome.

I stopped reading at the first verse of Titus. That was the only book I went to. First time looking at site and mispelled words. Someone needs to proof read everything that was written. Going to a different one online.
