Chapter-a-Day Titus 1

For there are a lot of rebels out there, full of loose, confusing, and
deceiving talk. Those who were brought up religious and ought to know
better are the worst. They’ve got to be shut up. They’re disrupting
entire families with their teaching, and all for the sake of a fast
buck
. Titus 1:10-16 (TM)

I couldn’t read this passage without thinking of the "fast-buck" preachers I’ve seen in our own time like Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker or Robert Tilton. Any believer with reasonable discernment could watch five minutes of their programming and realize that it’s not about the Message, but about the money. I find it interesting that Paul says "they’ve got to be shut up". I’m not sure how to do that, but sometimes I wonder if the Church should do more to try and silence these people. I know I do my part by turning them off.
