The Titus Mandate by Ted Bigelow

The church is supposed to be the safest place on earth for Christians, so why is it often a place of deep dissatisfaction? Many Christians suffer from difficult church situations and are unsure how to live and worship with such stress, let alone grow in the midst of it. Much of this pain comes from being under poor church leadership. According to Ted Bigelow, if your church doesn’t follow God’s mandate for leadership as set out in the book of Titus, it is almost certainly headed for disaster.

MY THOUGHTS

Many people were and are hurt by churches that have too many programs and activities, but are neglecting the true purpose of the Church. That is to worship our God with singing, praising Him and encouraging each other in the truth of our faith.

I also have been hurt by the church, so this book spoke to me personally.  I am still wandering from church to church trying to find the peace and the unity of a congregation that is searching for the presence of God in the church and in their lives.

Ted Bigelow is correct in pointing us to the Titus Mandate, which was given by Paul to his adopted son Titus and to all the leaders and elders for all the churches from the past, present and future. It is the responsibility of the elders and deacons in the church to keep the scriptural word of God and the reality of the cross of Jesus Christ as the main point in having the church in the first place, with prayers and humility and understanding.

The author Ted Bigelow has written on a subject so important to the overall health of any Church, and we should be well advised by his words. The mandate by God is very clear. However, the reading of this book takes some determination on the part of the reader as it reads more as a text book on Church disciplines.

For serious students of the word of God and any possible leaders contemplating to get involved in Church leadership and interested in the present state of many churches, this book is a must read.

This review was completed by my husband, Dick.
