What you project onto others is a strong indicator of who you are if Titus 1:15 is true… “To the pure, all things are pure, but to the defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their minds and their consciences are defiled.” (Click Here for Part 1)
An untrustworthy person believes others can’t be trusted. A manipulator believes others are manipulators. A liar thinks all people lie. A person who thinks they are always right refuses to consider those who disagree with them could be right. A critical person regularly finds fault with others. That is Titus 1:15…
A person who can be trusted, trusts others. A person of truth believes what others tell them. A person who is faithful will put their faith in others. A loving person will defend those others attack. That is Titus 1:15…
Now let’s examine our heart.
What do we think about others?
What do our thoughts about others mean about us?
Does what you’ve read so far offend you?
Are you finding fault with this application of Titus 1:15?
The purpose for studying Scripture is NOT to first help others get their life right with God, it is to conform US to the image of Christ. God’s Word is a mirror WE are to look into for self-examination. I figure if God has been working this in me, there might be others who could benefit from these thoughts. Hebrews 4:12,
The word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
