False Teachers

Part 3 of Titus – Paul’s concern in writing to Titus was to strengthen the young churches that had been planted on the island of Crete. He wanted to see them be healthy and sound. As we saw last week, he directed Titus to appoint godly leaders who “would hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that [they] can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it” (1:9). His focus in our passage today on “those who oppose it”—false teachers in the church.
