Indeed, those holding leadership in the Church were NOT to be Judaizers, plain and simple. Paul warns in verse 10 that there are "many rebellious people" who are "full of empty talk and deception" and that these people are particularly those "from Judaism." Read just that verse at least ten times. Then read verse 13 & 14, which states that we are to sharply rebuke those who deviate from "truth" and who "pay attention to Jewish myths" and to all those who "reject the truth." Just these three verses alone serve as absolutely critically direct verses against Judaizing!
Titus’s Ministry in Crete5 The reason I left you in Crete was to set right what was left undone and, as I directed you, to appoint elders in every town: 6 one who is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of wildness or rebellion. 7 For an overseer, as God’s administrator, must be blameless, not arrogant, not hot-tempered, not addicted to wine, not a bully, not greedy for money, 8 but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, righteous, holy, self-controlled, 9 holding to the faithful message as taught, so that he will be able both to encourage with sound teaching and to refute those who contradict it.
10 For there are also many rebellious people, full of empty talk and deception, especially those from Judaism. 11 It is necessary to silence them; they overthrow whole households by teaching what they shouldn’t in order to get money dishonestly. 12 One of their very own prophets said,
Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.13 This testimony is true. So, rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith 14 and may not pay attention to Jewish myths and the commands of men who reject the truth.15 To the pure, everything is pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; in fact, both their mind and conscience are defiled. 16 They profess to know God, but they deny Him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, and disqualified for any good work. (Titus 1:5-16 HCSB)
However, let us not overlook the other verses surrounding the three verses above! Paul not only tells us what NOT to be -- i.e., a Judaizer. He also describes the Godly attributes that Church leaders should be, so that they may set the example for all others in the Church. And what are those Godly attributes? The answer can be found in verse 7 & 8. We must be "blameless," "not arrogant," "not hot-tempered," "not addicted to wine," "not a bully," "not greedy for money," (verse 7), "but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, righteous, holy, self-controlled,"...(verse 8). That my friends is a concise definition of "Godliness!" Can you imagine what the world would be like if all people were to take on these attributes?
Now let us look at the inverse of verses 7 & 8. Those who are arrogant, hot-tempered, addicted to alcohol, bullies, and greedy for money are EXACTLY perfect terms to define today's worldly Jews who subscribe to Judaism, and who are "mammon" (or money) worshipers. Those who have worked for Jewish employers know exactly how rude and despicable they can be. A number of them I have worked for have "split personalities" where they are "nice" one minute and then absolutely rude and vile the next minute. It is that very (wicked) attribute that no doubt earns them positions of "power" and "influence." Why? Because, so many cowardly goyim submit to people who are rude and vile and view them as "powerful" and worthy of respect!
As the old (Jewish-promoted) saying goes, "nice guys finish last." Such a statement is a truthful statement in *this* world. The (most) wicked rise to the top. And who is on top of this world? Jews, that's who! Those who want to become the "kings" of this world, must behave as Jews do. They must be more arrogant, more hot-tempered, more pleasure seeking, and they must be bullies who will do anything to satisfy their greedy desires for money! Those seeking riches and wealth in this world do not need to attend Tony Robbins firewalking sessions. Just follow the way of the worldly Jew, and convert to Judaism! You may indeed become rich too!
And to top it off, what else does a Jew do to justify all of their wickedness? Read verse 15 & 16. The Jew professes to "know God," "but they deny Him by their works." (Verse 16) And, that is the hypocrisy of the Jew being fully exposed by Paul. The Jews of Paul's day are exactly as they are today. No different!
Why then does 1/4 of the ENTIRE American population (70+ Million) continue in their Judaizing ways? Why do they insist upon living as Jews do, and why do they continue their support for an apostate nation (Israel) which was built in 1948 and based upon Judaism, which Paul so adamantly warned against in his letter to Titus? Because those who "stand with the nation of Israel" also invariably "stand with Judaism" as well. That my friends is Judaizing, and Paul takes a CRYSTAL clear stance against it! It is time for Christians to wake up, so that they not end up in the same wagon that so many Jews have been in, lest they face the same judgment the Christ-hating Jews shall receive!
