Titus 1:9 (ESV)
He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.
Titus 1:9 (KJV)
Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
I find the ESV to be a bit strong while the KJV and other translations indicate a more reasoned approach to convicting someone of the errors in their behavior and beliefs. One who serves as a leader needs to be well grounded in the Scriptures and in their willingness to let the Word of God and the Spirit lead the conversation.
