The object of the epistle to Titus and those to Timothy
The Epistle to Titus is occupied with the maintenance of order in the churches of God.
The special object of those written to Timothy was the maintenance of sound doctrine, although speaking of other things with regard to which the Apostle gives directions for the conduct of Timothy. This the Apostle himself tells us. In the First Epistle to Timothy we see that Paul had left his beloved son in the faith at Ephesus, in order to watch that no other doctrine was preached there; the assembly is the pillar and support of the truth. In the second epistle we find the means by which Christians are to be strengthened in the truth when the mass have departed from it.
