    I love the verse, Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

    I wonder what Let no man despise thee means...

    Titus spoke about false prophet. Of recent I now begain to see that not everyone in church are burnagain. And most prophet are not preaching the right thing. Just because they want to keep crowd. Even when when they know they are not leaving the life that is acceptable in the site of God.

    I think that Titus 2 speaks sound doctrine. If ALL of us on this planet followed the scripture, Titus 2, this world as we know it today, would be less dysfunctional.

    Titus 2 speaks about the behavior of a believer, but it isn 't seen much. The world doesn 't see them much neither. When I drive on the interstate and notice that drivers do not obey the law, I wonder where God 's people are? How is it that the world is not seeing our example? This is a very important chapter to all believers, God is watching, and He wants us to make a difference in everything we do.
  • Dave
    dare teach this today - women want thier men obedient.
