  8. 8. Christianity <ul><li>Now a bishop must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, dignified, hospitable, an apt teacher, no drunkard, nor violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, and no lover of money. He must manage his own household well, keeping his children submissive and respectful in every way; for if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how can he care for God’s church? </li></ul><ul><li>I Timothy 3:2-5 </li></ul>
  9. 9. Islam <ul><li>O David! We indeed set you as a vicegerent on earth; </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore judge aright between men. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not follow the lusts of your heart, </li></ul><ul><li>for they will mislead you from the path of God. </li></ul><ul><li>Qur’an 38.26 </li></ul>
