When we refer to the Holy Word of God, let us do it in a respectable and correct way, teaching what is really good and healthy for our spirit, that the Word gives life, that the Word fills us, makes our downcast spirit regain strength.
The Word of God is effective, and it is like a double-edged sword, let’s teach the Word of God correctly as it is written, let’s not try to mislead what is correct.
In the apostle Paul’s letter to Titus you find a command from Paul to Titus to correctly teach the Word of God, since many deviate from the truth, teaching things that are not in the Bible or misrepresenting what is written.
But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine
Titus 2:1 (KJV)
This is a clear instruction from Paul to Titus and in verses two to ten he talks about exactly what Titus should teach: The duties of the old men and women, he should teach the young men to be prudent, and teach the servants to respect to their masters.
The apostle Paul wanted Titus to comply with these instructions, to teach good manners and the good way, to walk according to the Word of God.
Sound doctrine teaches us every day how to live correctly before God, how we should act, it teaches us that we must be prepared. What is sound doctrine? I invite you to read the entire chapter 2 of Titus, and you will discover that sound doctrine has nothing to do with what many teach today as “sound doctrine.”
