Discussion for Titus 2

    Let no man despise thee. Hypocrisy. A person, especially Christians, are despised when they do not follow their own preaching. Say one thing, do another. Speak righteousness, do evil in their lives. And are seen by others.
  • Jamar Wright
    Titus is a good teacher
  • Faith
    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...
  • Mary
    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.
