On the one hand, an inoculation is positive; on the other hand, it is negative, for it indicates that we need to be protected from a disease that could kill us. Titus — to maintain the order of the church.
1 & 2 Timothy, Titus (Paul M. Zehr) | Paul The Apostle | Acts Of The Apostles
The purpose of the book of Titus is to maintain the order of the church. It was written to assure that a local church would have a proper order. For the accomplishment of this purpose, the following basic and crucial things are stressed repeatedly in these three books:. All these are related to the condition of life. The faith equals the economy, the household administration, the dispensation, of God. Healthy teachings, healthy words, and healthy speech are the ministry of the truth, ministering to people the reality of the divine truths.
Eternal life is the means and power to carry out the divine realities of the faith. Godliness is a living that expresses the divine reality, an expression of God in all His riches. Faith subjective is the response to the truth of the faith objective , receiving and participating in the divine realities. Conscience is a test and check to preserve us in the faith. Philemon does not seem to be related to 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus. According to many Bible teachers, these three books are called pastoral Epistles, books that give instructions on how to pastor, shepherd, a church.
Because the term pastoral as applied to these books is too shallow, I prefer not to use it.

I admit, however, that there is an element of pastoring, of shepherding, in these books. But it is altogether too superficial to speak of them as pastoral Epistles. Although Philemon was a master, and Onesimus was a slave, they shared an equal status in the new man. As we shall see, Onesimus ran away from his master, but was saved through Paul in prison.
God’s dispensation versus differing teachings
Then Paul sent him back to Philemon not as a slave, but as a dear brother in Christ. Therefore, here we see an illustration of the equal status of all believers in the new man. If we put this Epistle together with 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, we shall know how to have a proper local church life. This is the crucial point.

Although this may be true, immersion is not the main point of the divine revelation. However, Peter, John, James, Paul, and the rest of the apostles preached the same thing — Christ and the church. Although the apostles were many, their ministry was one. We should never think that Peter, John, James, and Paul taught differently from one another. No, they all taught Christ and the church.
In the four Gospels one Person is revealed through four biographies. These biographies are written from different angles, but they do not reveal more than one Person. All four reveal the same Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. Because this wonderful Person has a Body, beginning with Acts and continuing through to the end of the New Testament, we see the Body of this Person. Again I say, all the apostles preached and taught the same thing, Christ and the church.

Because the apostles taught and preached Christ and the church, they all had one ministry. The apostles were many, but they had received just one ministry. In chapter one of Acts there is a further indication that all the apostles were in one and the same ministry v. Any so-called ministry that is different from the ministry of Paul and the other apostles is actually not a ministry at all; it is a different teaching.
The command of God is a definite expression, a further direction, of the will of God.
It was according to the command of such a saving God, a Savior God, not according to the command of the law-giving God, a demanding God, that Paul became an apostle. Hence, He Himself is our hope, the hope of glory Col. It was according to the command not only of our Savior God, but also of the One Who has saved us with eternal life and will bring us into the glory of this life, that Paul became an apostle.
His command is of the eternal life and is to be fulfilled by the eternal life, in contrast to the command of the law-giving God, which was of letters and which was to be fulfilled by human effort, without the supply of eternal life. Thus, it means to honor God. Timothy became a genuine child of Paul, not by natural birth, but in faith, that is, in the sphere and element of faith; not naturally, but spiritually. Probably he wrote this Epistle from Macedonia, which is made up of what is today northern Greece and southern Bulgaria.
To teach differently was to teach myths, unending genealogies v.

His ministry completes the revelation concerning the all-inclusive Christ and His universal Body, the church as His fullness to express Him. Concerning the church as the Body of Christ, there are two sides: life and practice. From Romans through 2 Thessalonians, a full revelation is given concerning the life of the church, including its nature, responsibility, and function.
Now, from 1 Timothy through Philemon, a detailed revelation concerning the practice of the church is presented. This pertains to the administration and shepherding of a local church. The same word is translated tales in and fables in 2 Timothy It refers to words, speeches, and conversations concerning such things as rumors, reports, stories true or false , and fictions.
theogeconcbacknab.tk It might include Jewish stories of miracles and rabbinical fabrications. The Jewish myths may have been the seed of Gnostic mythologies. The myths and the unending genealogies give rise to vain talking and cause people to misaim from the goal of the charge of love.
The differing teachings of the dissenting ones in verse 3 caused envy and discord among the believers. A pure heart is a single heart without mixture, seeking the Lord only and taking the Lord as the unique goal. In order to deal with the differing teachings when the trend of the church is toward decline, all these attributes are required.
They are necessary if we are to have a pure, true, and genuine love. According to this verse, those who desire to be law teachers confidently affirm certain things. The Greek for confidently can also be rendered strongly or emphatically. According to verses 8 through 10, the law is good if used lawfully. Anything that is healthy refers to the health of life. The sound teaching of the apostles, which is according to the gospel of the glory of God, ministers healthy teaching as the supply of life to people, either nourishing them or healing them.
In contrast, the differing teachings of the dissenting ones in verse 3 sow the seeds of death and poison into others.
This divine economy must be made fully clear to the saints in the administration and shepherding of a local church. This has been my burden for more than forty years. According to the Bible, God does not first want to have a kingdom. Rather, He first wants a house, a family. Once He has a family, His family will spontaneously become His kingdom. If He is not able to secure a family, a household, a house, He will not be able to have a kingdom.
The dispensing of God into us is altogether by faith.
