What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, unhealthy http://csautomation.net/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/wc-conditional-functions.php who can be[against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 

 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Inspector General of Police, website http://class-actions.us/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php Gen Edward Kale Kayihura has refuted media reports asserting that the ongoing killings in the country including that of government prosecutor Joan Kagezi have been conducted by the Al Shabaab.

Gen. Kayihura says that the killings are fueled by organized criminal groups who want to distort peace in the country.

During a meeting with the business community yesterday evening at Protea Hotel in Kampala, http://colbleu.fr/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/i18n/states/us.php The IGP assured the business fraternity that Uganda is safe and secure despite the unfortunate tragedies.

General Kayihura further asked for increased vigilance among the business community which he said was more vulnerable to such attacks.

The IGP also expressed worry about the growing trend of people fearing to assist security agencies when such trouble breaks out.

“Lately people no longer respond to alarms yet we cannot have police everywhere, http://denafilmax.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/single-product/product-image.php every time due to the small number of policemen in the country in relation to the population,” said the IGP.

He has asked for popular vigilance and involvement of the public in fighting crime.
