Kazi Ya Tito Huko Krete

51:5 Mdo 27:7; 11:30Sababu ya mimi kukuacha huko Krete ni ili uweke utaratibu mambo yale yaliyosalia na kuwaweka wazee wa kanisa katika kila mji, kama nilivyokuagiza. 61:6 1Tim 3:2; 3:12; 4; 1The 3:13Mzee wa kanisa asiwe na lawama, awe mume wa mke mmoja, mtu ambaye watoto wake ni waaminio na wala hawashtakiwi kwa ufisadi. 71:7 1Tim 3:1; 1Kor 4:1; 1Tim 3:3, 8Kwa kuwa mwangalizi, kama wakili wa Mungu, imempasa kuwa mtu asiye na lawama, asiwe mwenye majivuno au mwepesi wa hasira, wala mlevi, wala asiwe mtu mwenye tamaa ya mapato yasiyo ya halali. 81:8 1Tim 3:2; 2Tim 3:3Bali awe mkarimu, anayependa mema, mwenye kiasi, mwenye haki, mwadilifu, mnyofu, mtakatifu na mwenye kuitawala nafsi yake. 91:9 1Kor 16:13; 1Tim 1:10Inampasa alishike kwa uthabiti lile neno la imani kama lilivyofundishwa, kusudi aweze kuwaonya wengine kwa mafundisho manyofu na kuwakanusha wale wanaopingana nayo.

Walimu Wa Uongo

101:10 1Tim 1:6; Mdo 11:2Kwa maana wako wengi wasiotii, wenye maneno yasiyo na maana, hasa wale wa kikundi cha tohara. 111:11 2Tim 3:6; Tit 3:6; Yn 10:12; 1Pet 5:2Hao ni lazima wanyamazishwe, kwa sababu wanaharibu watu wa nyumba nzima wakifundisha mambo yasiyowapasa kufundisha. Wanafanya hivyo kwa ajili ya kujipatia mapato ya udanganyifu. 121:12 Mdo 17:28; 2:11Hata mmojawapo wa manabii wao mwenyewe amesema, “Wakrete ni waongo siku zote, wanyama wabaya, walafi, wavivu.” 131:13 2Kor 13:10; Tit 2:2Ushuhuda huu ni kweli. Kwa hiyo, uwakemee kwa ukali wapate kuwa wazima katika imani, 141:14 1Tim 4:7; 1:4; Kol 2:22; 2Tim 4:4ili wasiendelee kuangalia hadithi za Kiyahudi au maagizo ya wale watu wanaoikataa kweli. 151:15 Rum 14:14, 23; Za 18:26; Mt 7:14-19; Mdo 10:9-16Kwa wale walio safi, kila kitu ni safi kwao. Lakini kwa wale waliopotoka na wasioamini, hakuna chochote kilicho safi. Kwa kweli nia zao na dhamiri zao zimepotoka. 161:16 1Yn 2; 4; Yer 5; 2; 12:2; Hos 8:2, 3Wanadai kumjua Mungu, lakini kwa matendo yao wanamkana. Hao watu ni chukizo, wasiotii, wasiofaa kwa jambo lolote jema.

King James Version

Titus 1:1-16

1Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; 2In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; 3But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; 4To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

5For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: 6If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 7For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; 8But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 9Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. 10For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: 11Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake. 12One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. 13This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 14Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. 15Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 16They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
