Waiting for minimum critic reviews


While Paul was in prison for the final time, he sent Timothy and Titus, young and relatively inexperienced Christian workers, to check on the churches he had established. While they were gone, Paul sent them these letters, two to Timothy and one to Titus. In each of them, Paul set forth principles that govern the administration of the local church. He dealt with the qualifications of church leaders, the ministry to widows in the church, and the correction of wayward members and those who misuse the Scriptures. He encouraged both Timothy and Titus to be diligent in serving the Lord and to pursue godliness with a pure heart. Persecution and apostasy had already started to creep into the folds of the Church and Paul was concerned that Timothy and Titus would be true to the Lord in both their faith and ministry. He instructed them to put every church in order to give them the best chances to prosper and influence their world for Christ. In these private letters, Paul shared his feelings about his expected martyrdom by the Roman sword and his sorrow over the absence of his friends and co-workers since they fled to safer areas.
