People who foolishly think that justification by faith or belief alone in the finished work of Christ alone is a license to sin do not understand the purposes of the finished work of Christ on His Cross for His elect sheep. Do you?

An overview of the book of Titus by OPC ordained guest preacher Larry Wilson. Titus 2:1-But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: 2 that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; 3 the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— 4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. 6 Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded, 7 in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, 8 sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you. 9 Exhort bondservants to be obedient to their own masters, to be well pleasing in all things, not answering back, 10 not pilfering, but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.
-From birth, we are taught that SLAVERY is the greatest of all sins.
There can be no nuance- all forms of slavery must be viewed the same. There can be no discussion of the matter. The Evangelical church acts just as the Liberal; yet claims to hold to Biblical inerrancy
So: how do they deal with such texts as 1 Peter 2:18: Servants (actually slaves is the better translation of the Greek word doulos), be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh?
So common is the desire to want to do something "Great" for the Lord, yet so many feel stuck doing "Stupid" jobs. Remembering that work is good, that we were designed to work, we are exhorted in this passage to do our work heartily as unto the Lord, because it is the Lord Who has redeemed us. In this way, our "Stupid" jobs become avenues by which we adorn the Gospel in this world.
Peter gives commands to servants in this passage. However, the command applies to anyone under authority, especially employees and students. He grounds all of his commands in the humiliation of Christ. The main point of this passage is that because Christ suffered, we are called to suffer. We broke this thesis into two parts. First, we must suffer only for good. Second, we must follow in Christ's footprints. No suffering occurs by accident or outside of God's plan. He always has a purpose in our suffering. As Romans 8:28 reminds us, all things work together for good, for those who love God. When suffering comes, Jesus invites us to follow in his footprints.
