bringing salvation to all men,
has shone forth
putting us under discipline
in order that denying ourselves of ungodliness and worldly covetings
we should live in this present age in a sober-minded and godly manner,
prepared to welcome the happy hope and forth-shining of the Great God and our saviour Christ Jesus,
Who gave Himself up on our behalf,
that He might redeem us from all manner of lawlessness,
and purify for Himself a people as His own treasure, zealous of noble works.
Be speaking as to these things and exhorting and reproving with all manner of authority.
Let no-one despise you."
Exactly why the next quote is inspirational as to the ultimate purpose;
Titus 3;7 ' That being justified by His grace,we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life."
The punishment/correction of mankind, and all the false doctrines, is to establish the fullness of the grace beyond measure- ergo very successful.
