Titus 2:1; Titus 2:7-8; Titus 2:15
Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine.
But mostly, show them all this by doing it yourself, incorruptible in your teaching,
your words solid and sane. Then anyone who is dead set against us, when he finds nothing weird or misguided, might eventually come around.
Tell them all this. Build up their courage, and discipline them if they get out of line. You're in charge. Don't let anyone put you down.
