He must be well thought of by outsiders, so he doesn't fall into disgrace and the trap set for him by the Devil. Ministers, too, must be serious. They must not be two-faced, addicted to wine, or greedy for money. They must hold firmly to the secret of the faith with clear consciences. But they must first be tested.
