While Timothy had been sent to a church that was already started and had gotten headed in the wrong direction because of false teachings and Elders of the church that led unchristian lives, Titus was starting a new church and picking Elders for the first time. So much of Titus sounds like 1 Timothy, but Paul is not talking to Titus about holding true to the faith and resisting those that would lead him astray.
What role was Titus’ lifestyle supposed to play in growing his church? Does that apply today? How do you speak to others with your lifestyle?
