Self-condemned (Titus 3:11)

“You know

That such a person

Is perverted,

And sinful,

Being self-condemned.”

εἰδὼς ὅτι ἐξέστραπται ὁ τοιοῦτος καὶ ἁμαρτάνει, ὢν αὐτοκατάκριτος.

Paul said, “You know that (εἰδὼς ὅτι) that such a person (ὁ τοιοῦτος) is perverted (ἐξέστραπται), and sinful (καὶ ἁμαρτάνει), being self-condemned (ὢν αὐτοκατάκριτος).”  Only this letter to Titus used this word ἐξέστραπται, that means to turn inside out, to pervert, change for the worse, or corrupt, and the word αὐτοκατάκριτος, that means self-condemned.  These heretical sectarian dissenters were perverted and sinners.  They condemned themselves.  Titus would not have to do much since these dividers of the Christian community knew that they were doing wrong.  They were condemning themselves.  Do you know people who are sinners?
