1 You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. 2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. Titus 2:1-2
Some friends of mine and I were discussing this passage. Paul had just finished talking about in Titus 1 the "detestable, disobedient, and unfit" Cretans. We were in conflict about whether Titus 2:1 was simply a conclusion of these ideas, or whether the "sound doctrine" refers to Paul's enumerations in the rest of Titus 2 of the roles of various people.
I saw this question which clarified a bit about what constitutes "sound doctrine", but I'm still not sure whether the rest of Titus 2 is a part of this.
Can someone clarify the original intention of the text here?
