False teachers (chapter 1)

Paul said that there were many rebellious people among the circumcised group.  They were insubordinate, vain talkers, and deceivers.  They had to be silenced since they were disturbing whole families with their false teachings.  Titus should remember that the people from Crete were liars, evil, and lazy gluttons.  The testimony of this ancient Greek poet was true.  Thus, Titus should rebuke these Cretans to make sure that they are sound in their faith.  Titus was not to pay attention to Jewish myths and other false human commands.  Then Paul explained that to the pure all things are pure.  However, to the corrupt unbelievers, nothing is pure.  These false teachers pretend to know God, but they deny him by their actions.  Are you consistent in your teaching and behavior?
