Is our political correctness preventing older men and women, from teaching this generation what our culture sees as archaic family values? Have we blacklisted many of the gender specific values that our grandparents held as dated and no longer relevant?

Cretan people get a bad wrap in Titus chapter 1. At least in Paul’s day, Cretans had a reputation of being liars, brutes and gluttons. Nevertheless, they were loved by God enough, to receive the ministry and leadership of Titus.

Last week our church started a preaching series on Paul’s letter to Titus. As our church walks through this series, feel free to download our podcast or bookmark the sermon audio or video at whbc.ca/sermons.

In case you missed my previous posts, I begin the week with a post focused on verse 8 titled, “Celebrating Easter with a Single Verse from Matthew“. Then I moved on to a pre-verse 8 post, “The Angel at the Empty Tomb was Not Cute“.

This Easter, God impressed upon me the importance of a single verse from the resurrection account; Matthew 28:8. In particular, 5 words from that verse: “…afraid, yet filled with joy…” (28:8) These 5 words tell me that the angel at the empty tomb was not cute.
