Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 3:10

_ _ hereticGreek “heresy,” originally meant a division resulting from individual self-will; the individual doing and teaching what he chose, independent of the teaching and practice of the Church. In course of time it came to mean definitely “heresy” in the modern sense; and in the later Epistles it has almost assumed this meaning. The heretics of Crete, when Titus was there, were in doctrine followers of their own self-willed “questions” reprobated in Titus 3:9, and immoral in practice.

_ _ reject — decline, avoid; not formal excommunication, but, “have nothing more to do with him,” either in admonition or intercourse.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Titus 3:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Titus 3:10

An heretic (after a first and second admonition) reject — Avoid, leave to himself. This is the only place, in the whole scripture, where this word heretic occurs; and here it evidently means, a man that obstinately persists in contending about "foolish questions," and thereby occasions strife and animosities, schisms and parties in the church. This, and this alone, is an heretic in the scripture sense; and his punishment likewise is here fixed. Shun, avoid him, leave him to himself. As for the Popish sense, "A man that errs in fundamentals," although it crept, with many other things, early into the church, yet it has no shadow of foundation either in the Old or New Testament.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Titus 3:10

(4) A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

(4) The ministers of the word must at once cast off heretics, that is, those who stubbornly and seditiously disquiet the Church, and will pay no attention to ecclesiastical admonitions.
