Series: Titus - Part 5
Bible Passage: Titus 2:11-15

Part 5 of Titus – Perhaps the most common religious belief in America affirms simply that a distant God who wants us to be happy expresses some vague desire that we try to “be good.” In social science circles this is known as “moralistic therapeutic deism” (or MTD). The Apostle Paul would have know that MTD is not by any means the Christian message, and our passage this morning clearly distinguishes such “mere moralism” from the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ours is a message of salvation by God’s grace. This morning we consider what that grace has to teach us.
