    The passages on proper rule in the Bible contradict the
    interpretation of our rule over creation as license. Note especially
    the example of Christ, Who came to serve. In addition, there are
    numerous passages (e.g., Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles) that provide
    guidelines on good or bad rule. In fact, we are responsible for the
    parts of creation under our care (e.g., if our oxen get violent).
