Titus 1

Tit 1:1 Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ according to the faith of the elect of God and full knowledge of the truth according to godliness,
Tit 1:2 on hope of eternal life which the God who does not lie promised before the eternal times,
Tit 1:3 but revealed in its own times in a proclamation of His Word, with which I was entrusted by the command of our Savior God;
Tit 1:4 to Titus, a true child according to our common faith: Grace, mercy, peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.
Tit 1:5 For this cause I left you in Crete, that you might set in order the things lacking and appoint elders in every city, as I ordered you:
Tit 1:6 If anyone is blameless, husband of one wife, having faithful children, not in accusation of loose behavior, or disobedient,
Tit 1:7 (for the overseer must be blameless as a steward of God), not self-pleasing, not prone to anger, not given to wine, not a quarreler, not greedy of ill gain;
Tit 1:8 but hospitable, a lover of good, discreet, just, holy, temperate,
Tit 1:9 clinging to the faithful Word according to the teaching, that he may be able both to encourage by sound doctrine and to convict the ones contradicting.
Tit 1:10 For there are indeed many insubordinate men, empty talkers and mind-deluders, especially those of the circumcision,
Tit 1:11 whose mouth you must stop, who overturn whole houses, teaching things which they ought not for the sake of ill gain.
Tit 1:12 One of them, a prophet of their own, said: Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.
Tit 1:13 This testimony is true; for which cause convict them severely, that they may be sound in the faith,
Tit 1:14 not listening to Jewish myths and commandments of men, having turned away from the truth.
Tit 1:15 Truly, all things are pure to the pure, but to the ones being defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience has been defiled.
Tit 1:16 They profess to know God, but by their works they deny Him, being abominable and disobedient, and worthless to every good work.

On this day...
