After last night’s home fellowship study in Galatians, I began to feel some self-doubt, wondering if I have of late perhaps been too hard on apostate priests coming in the name of Christ and misleading people with a false gospel replacing God’s grace with religious works for justification.
God answered today during my personal devotional time in the book of Titus, which says in chapter one: “For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach…. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. For there are many who are insubordinate, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision party. They must be silenced, since they are upsetting whole families by teaching for shameful gain what they ought not to teach…. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not devoting themselves to Jewish myths and the commands of men who turn away from the truth.”
