In Titus 1:5-12 Paul told Pastor Titus how to choose workers within the church and, very specifically, what kind of leader to avoid. We would do well to follow this pattern in electing government officials as well as church leaders!
In II Timothy 1:5-8 Paul also told Pastor Timothy to remind himself of his godly heritage and the powerful gifts he’d received when he was ordained for ministry and to stir them up inside himself and see the power of God move.
Paul was very clearly admonishing these young pastors that the teachings of Christ must remain pure in leaders in the government and the church, undefiled by evil men’s plans and motives and that they should not tolerate such behaviors. And, neither should we.
