Tts 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Tts 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; Tts 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Tts 3:8 [This is] a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. Tts 3:9¶But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. Tts 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; Tts 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself. Paul speaking on behalf of the Holy Spirit states that those who "strive about the law" and do not repent after one or two admonitions are to be rejected as one being "subverted and sinneth". The question would be; Is Paul speaking of one who is arguing that the law is a means of salvation or proof of salvation? Or Is Paul speaking of one who is arguing that the law is not a means of salvation or proof of salvation? One should ask, Has Paul ever argued that the keeping of the law is needed for salvation or for the proof of salvation? Since Paul never argued that one should be observing the law for salvation or for the evidence of salvation, then Paul must have been speaking of those who were arguing that the keeping of the law is a must for salvation or a must as the evidence of salvation.
