Titus: The true disciple
Paul is known as a proponent of the word “grace” in preference over “good works” but that is not exactly correct.
The misunderstanding is taken from Eph 2:8-9 when Sha’ul was contrasting grace and “works.” This “work” was equated to the “good works” as one and the same, thus, the phrase “we cant be saved by [our] good works.” Verse 10 of the same passage contradicted this whole wrong notion that “we were created to do good works.” Work and good works are two different things.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great G-d and our Saviour Yeshua HaMashiach; Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
