Epistle to Titus
| Light iron-age reading|
|Gabbin' with God|
Titus is a TV show that ran in the early 2000s with some off color humor. Course, being that it was actually funny, it was pulled within a year.
Titus advises the reader to always obey princes and authorities, slaves to obey their masters, and to avoid foolish controversies and genealogies. Foolish genealogies? This could either mean don't marry your cousin, or don't hang around with those who foolishly trace their ancestry so they can baptize their dead relatives. Titus also contains some choice words about Them. Them? You know, them. "Those of the circumcision". (Wink wink). "These must be rebuked, for they upset whole households"..."Hence rebuke them sharply that they may not listen to Jewish fables"..."Being abominable and unbelieving and useless for any good work". Blah blah blah. Nope, doubt that the circumcised Rabbi Paul wrote this at all.
Titus 1:12-13 gives insight to the famous Epimenides paradox:
One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
Where the Cretan prophet said "The Cretians are alway liars", which pretty much includes the prophet him/herself. See also self-refuting idea.
