John 15:9-17 (New American Standard Bible)
9"Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.
And so we have a Lisa Fox post: "I was dismayed yesterday to read that Sudan’s Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul has “requested that" the Reverend Lauren Stanley "be withdrawn from that mission field permanently.” This is an atrocity."
The "honorable" Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul is the archbishop of all of the Sudan. That is correct, the place where men are slaughtered, women are raped and children are starved to death. Why this atrocity? Because Lauren Stanley spoke about GLBT rights. "abide in my love"
10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
Henri Luke Orombi is this very weekend not spending time in Uganda but rather with an all-mens group in Orange County California not doubt gathering up support for his anti-gay crusade in Uganda. Oh, but wait, while he is here there is a terrible problem in Kampala. There are literally hundreds of thousands of children that sleep in the city during the night because they have no place to go and the Lord's Resistance Army steals them and makes these 8,9,10,11,12 year olds into "warriors' with guns and bombs and hatred. Bishop Orambi, why can't you save these children?
11"These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.
13"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
14"You are My friends if you do what I command you.
15"No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16"You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you."
17"This I command you, that you love one another."
