Scripture… As We Live It #34

Posted by on Dec 28, 2008 in as we live it, scripture | 5 comments

This is passage #34 in “Scripture… As We Live It“:

But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us : Scripture, theology, Christology, pneumatology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology. (Titus 2:1-8 re-mix)

    What a great reminder that our theology/doctrine cannot be seperated from how we live!

    Let us be sure to use big words so that even if there is no grit to our speech it will sound off
    -putting and people without an M. Div. will not criticize us, or engage us in conversation.

    “train the young women to [be]… submissive to their own husbands”

    That sexist bit is well worth striking out.
