“Denying Him” ( Titus 1: 16, KJV ) by Carley Evans

Paul warns Titus about “many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers” who “teach things which they ought not.” (Titus 1:10, 11) These persons teach for the sake of money; Titus is to “rebuke them sharply.” (Titus 1:13) Paul is concerned that these ‘teachers’ are leading people backwards into “Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.” (Titus 1:14) These ‘teachers’ are calling for Christians to be circumcised and to obey the law of Moses.

Paul writes, “They profess that they know God, but in works they deny Him.” (Titus 1:16)

What is the good work of God?

“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, to speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men.” (Titus 3:1-2)

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.” (Titus 2:11)

    The old “know them by their fruits” technique. We can speak a good line, and even write some pretty convincing stuff, but at the end of the day, our priorities that we set will betray what we profess to be important. Thanks for these piercing truths Carley. God bless.

      oh, wish I am old as you to know this technique. kidding.

      “your WORK produced BY FAITH, your LABOR prompted BY LOVE, and your ENDURANCE inspired BY HOPE in our Lord Jesus Christ”
      – 1 Thessalonians 1:3

      fruit of Faith is Work
      fruit of Love is Labor
      fruit of Hope is Endurance

      thank you for sharing the technique. I think I have learn from you.

      grace and peace
