Warn a Feller Intent on Stirring Up Trouble Among That Crew

As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.– Titus 3:10-11 (Titus 3)

Remind tha crew ter be subject ter rulers and authorities. Remind tha crew ter be obey at all times. Remind tha crew ter be ready to do whatever be good. Remind tha crew ter ne’er slander a body, ter be peaceable, considerate, and ter show humility ter all fellers and ladies.

Our service ter Skip be tha way we say thanks ter him fer hauling us aboard. Do not disqualify yerself fer service by spouting instructions contrary ter Skip’s orders or acting in a manner that shows contempt fer tha Son.

Remind tha crew that at one time they be foolish, disobedient, deceived, and slaves ter all manner of passions and pleasures. All has acted with malice and envy. Hated and been hated by others, we have.

When Skip our Savior rescued us through tha washing of water and tha rebirth and renewal by his Holy Ghost of Truth, we be cleaned through and through. Thems who trust in God devote themselves ter doing what be good.

Avoid foolish controversies and arguments and quarreling ’bout tha finer points of Skipper’s Code of Conduct. His navigational charts be clear enough fer them’s that’s got an eye fer reading tha water and wind, currents and channels. Trying ter find rocks and reefs, bars and breaks in waves, that not be clearly marked in Skip’s passages be a waste of time. Warn a feller intent on stirring up trouble among that crew once. Warn him a second time if necessary. After that have nothing ter do with him. Of this ya kin be sure: a mate of that stripe be as warped as an old deck plank. By his actions he shows himself puffed up with conceit and condemns his own self.
