Notice how the enthusiasm of young trainees is not directed towards their study of the Bible, the good news of the Gospel, or good works towards mankind, but enthusiasm to bring others under legalism and submission to the ministry.

Thanks for pointing this out, Drake.

Compare the FTT "enthusiasm" with Paul's instruction to his "trainee" Titus ... "For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men; training us, that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, and righteously, and godly in this world, Looking for the blessed hope and coming of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and might purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous of good works, These things teach, admonish, and reprove with authority.." (Titus 2.11-14)
