Titus 2

(2:4-5) "Teach the young women to be ... obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."
What the Bible says about Women's Rights

(2:6) "Young men ... be sober minded."
I suppose it's good for young men to be "sober minded." But is it OK to have some fun now and then?

(2:7) "In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works ... sincerity."

(2:9-10) "Exhort servants [slaves] to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity."
Should we serve God alone?
Does God approve of slavery?
What the Bible says about slavery

(2:12) "The grace of God ... hath appeared to all men."
At the time this statement was written, only a very small minority had seen or heard about Jesus. And still today there are those who have never heard his name.

(2:13) "The great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity"
Is Jesus God?
Is there an unforgivable sin?

2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2:2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
2:6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
2:7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
2:8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
2:9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;
2:10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Old men should be sober, grave, temperate, faithful, charitable, and patient.
That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. 2:2

Old women should be holy, not false accusers, not drink too much wine, and teach good things.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. 2:3-5

ell young men to be sober-minded.
Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. 2:6

Let everyone see your good works.
In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works. 2:7

Slaves, obey your masters.
Exhort servants [slaves] to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. 2:9-10

Dwindling in Unbelief
Happy Blasphemy Day! (Titus 2:4-5)
