Living_Oracles(i) 16 It is not you who have chosen me; but it is I who have chosen you, and ordained you to go and bear fruit: fruit which will prove permanent, that the Father may give you whatsoever you shall ask him in my name. 17 This I command you, that you love one another. 18 If the world hate you, consider that it hated me, before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, I having selected you from the world, the world hates you.
