Discussion for Titus 1

  • Yesmalachi
    Titus 1 vs 10;For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: How true is this verse in reference to churches of this age. Many have left the preaching of the gospel/Christ to motivational speeches, business talks, and self elevation messages today in our various pulpits thereby relegating Christ to the back ground. May God deliver us from such.

    2 Peter 1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

    TITUS 1:14 "NOT GIVING HEED TO JEWISH FABLES AND COMMANDMENTS OF MEN THAT TURN FROM THE TRUTH" Matthew 21:38 "But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance." The Jews absolutely and without apology reject the Lord Jesus Christ, and have entirely set up themselves as the authorities instead of Jesus.
  • Ray321
    Titus 1:3 3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour. Apostle Paul was given the Words to preach from God the Son. Nobody knew what Jesus was telling Paul, when Paul reveal it in writing, the Jews were shocked in unbelief.

    TITUS 1:14 NOT GIVING HEED TO JEWISH FABLES AND COMMANDMENTS OF MEN THAT TURN FROM THE TRUTH ***EZEKIEL 33:31 AND THEY COME UNTO THEE AS THE PEOPLE COMETH AND THEY SIT BEFORE THEE AS MY PEOPLE AND THEY HEAR THY WORDS --- BUT THEY WILL NOT DO THEM --- FOR WITH THEIR MOUTH THEY SHOW MUCH LOVE BUT THEIR HEART GOETH AFTER THEIR COVETOUSNESS
