Paul left Titus in Crete to set what remained unfinished in order (1:5). One pressing matter that was unfinished was the appointment of elders. Godly leadership is vital to a properly ordered church. In 1:10-16, Paul explains why Titus’ appointment of qualified leadership and opposition to unqualified leadership in the Cretan churches is so important, namely because there are many false teachers in Crete turning people away from the centrality of the gospel. So, in order to help Titus and the churches recognize and oppose ungodly leadership, Paul gives 12 characteristics of false teachers and 2 action steps to take in order to prevent them from harming the church.

Politics, Money, and Religion have a nasty way of making us think only in extremes: “liberal vs. conservative” “rich vs. poor” “godly vs. godless.” But what if the New Testament offers a different way of thinking? When Jesus speaks about the Kingdom of Heaven, he reveals a reality that upsets our comfortable “us vs. them” mentality. Join us as senior pastors Paul Basden and Jim Johnson explore what it means to have a Kingdom mindset during our 3-week series Politics, Money & Religion.
