Qualified Elders

For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should eset in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you—if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, fhaving faithful children not accused of 2dissipation or insubordination. For a 3bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, gnot given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.
