One of the Pauline Epistles that is part of the New Testament. This was written by Paul the apostle to Saint Titus.

This book provides examples of:

  • The Heretic: Paul tells Titus what to do with such a person in Titus 3:10-11.
    A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself. (King James Version)
  • Hypocrite: Of those whose minds and consciences are defiled, Paul says this in Titus 1:16:
    They profess that they know God, but in their deeds they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and worthless for every good work.

  • Polyamory: Discouraged by Paul as far as appointing elders to the church, who says in Titus 1:6 that such a man must be found "the husband of one wife".
  • Sinister Minister: Paul mentions in Titus 1:10-12 that there are "many unruly men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, who must be silenced, who subvert whole houses by teaching for dishonest gain things they ought not teach." One of their own "prophets" even goes on to make Malicious Slander of certain people, saying “The Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, and idle gluttons!”
