Summarise the various challenges that Titus faced while shepherding the church in Crete

Paul left Titus alone on Crete and assigned him with the task of introducing the Gospel of Christ to every single church on the Crete island. It was undoubtedly a difficult task to handle alone. Churches were preaching vague concepts that were based on falsehood, so the people of the Crete island were for long living a sinful life. Paul was aware of the challenges that Titus had to face, so he didn’t leave him alone and wrote him letters to guide him. To bring the people to righteousness, Titus devised a scheme and appointed older people who were according to Paul’s requirements. One of the problems that Titus faced in Crete and it still can be traced out in the modern churches, is lack of questioning. Most people hear, understand, and obey the preaching conveyed to them in the churches without verifying the information. The inhabitants of Crete had done the same without knowing the credibility of the information. The ignorance about the transparency of information was one of the most significant problems faced by Titus. The book of Titus has words of wisdom, and it quotes his experiences in handling all the challenges. Thus, it is indeed a thought-provoking book for believers. Upon addressing the hardships he had to face while dealing with the Crete inhabitants, he said that it is undoubtedly the love of God for his creation that saves them from ignorance and guides them to the right path.

“For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for humanity appeared, He saved us (Titus3:3-7)”
