Notes On Titus (27)

“Trouble-Shooting With Titus”

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

“Assured of the Source” (3:11)

There is one thing Titus can sure of, that is where this evil is coming from. For this person is warped, bent. You are dealing with a perverted sinful mind of one whose father is the devil, the father of lies, as Jesus calls him. And it is this person himself who is responsible for the separation ultimately, not the church. For he has separated himself from divine truth and therefore from the fellowship of the saints. He has resisted every effort to change his mind and bring to or back to the truth. So it is he who is the separatist. His heresy has separated him from the truth. Therefore he bears his own guilt. He stands self-condemned. He has again and again been confronted with the truth. So having been confronted and presented with the truth and rejected it, the church has no need whatever to condemn itself. The heretic does so himself. And do keep in mind the extensive experience the man has in many churches, in many difficult situations, who is giving this counsel to Titus, and to us today.
