Faith Is Not Contrary to the Social Order
Today's reading is the conclusion of the letter to Titus. It summarizes the theme of the middle part of the letter, studied yesterday. In order to be a good Christian, one must be a good person in the eyes of the wider (non-Christian) community. You must not only follow religious rules, but you must obey the laws and customs of the place where you live. A good Christian teacher will insist that people not only learn about Jesus, but live peacefully and honorably among all of their neighbors.
