Titus Outline
Titus 2:9

9 Exhort 1aslaves to be subject to their own masters in all things, to be well pleasing, not contradicting,

91 Not servants but bondslaves bought in the market like oxen and horses. Certainly Paul did not agree with the system of slavery. However, as a teacher appointed by God and as one with spiritual sight, he did not touch the existing social system. To have done so would have given his readers the impression that he was a social reformer, not a teacher of God's economy, and would have obscured his teaching concerning the living out of Christ's divine life in our human living in the midst of any kind of social system.
