Today we begin Paul’s letter to Titus who was one of the church leaders on the island of Crete. The purpose of this letter was to advise Titus of his responsibilities and to teach him. In Titus 1:15 Paul warns Titus of people whose lives are so corrupt they cannot see the truth: To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupt. These people are unable to see the difference between right and wrong. Sadly, they attempt to justify their behavior and make good people out to be the ones who are wrong. If we look around, and are honest with ourselves, we see these people all around us today in our current world. Be aware of them and do not allow them to persuade you that you are doing something wrong in your righteousness.
