Description: We visit Titus chapter 2 and examine how believers are called to imitate Christ and then model such maturity unto others. With the increasing secularization of Christianity in the West, this order has been abandoned in favor of a sinful inclination – namely, the imitation of all that is wicked and contrary to Biblical godliness.
It’s been some time since the terms Pharisee and Puritan were converted into pejoratives, used to describe a hypocrite and overly judgmental censor respectively. In many cases, these words have been employed against Biblical Christians by secularists to euphemistically represent our views as duplicitous and repressive to the rest of society.

“I’m spiritual, but I’m not religious.”
“I love Jesus, but I can’t stand Christians because they are such hypocrites.”
The first and the third ideas are usually repeated by those that assist megachurches and are trend-following Christians. The second and third utterances are customarily stated by sinners of all stripes in one form or another. Do you desire to know what characterizes everyone who has repeated any of the three?
