John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

A judge on Wednesday dismissed child neglect charges against three of the five suspects who were arrested after a New Mexico compound bust earlier this month. Eleven children were found living in filth and the body of a 3-year-old boy was discovered during the raid.

The compound was linked to “extremist Muslims,” where it was discovered one suspect was training the children, ages 1 to 15, to commit school shootings, according to court documents.

Prosecutors missed a 10-day deadline for a hearing to establish probably cause for the child neglect charges, Judge Emilio Chavez said, the Associated Press reported.

Lucas Morton, Subhannah Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahha can still be charged by prosecutors, but there was no indication as to how things would move forward, the Associated Press said.

Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, and his partner, Jany Leveille, still face charges. It was Siraj Ibn Wahhaj’s 3-year-old son whose remains were discovered at the compound.

There were 11 children discovered at the compound, whom Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe described as looking like “third world country refugees not only with no food or fresh water, but with no shoes, personal hygiene and basically dirty rags for clothing,” Fox News had reported. The conditions were “the ugliest looking, filthiest” he had ever seen, the sheriff added.

Authorities described Wahhaj as “heavily armed with an AR15 rifle, five loaded 30 round magazines, and four loaded pistols, including one in his pocket when he was taken down” when the compound was raided, Hogrefe said, Fox reported.

Hogrefe has said that the adults at the compound were “considered extremist of the Muslim belief,” but he did not elaborate, CBS News had reported.

Prosecutors said that Wahhaj was using the guns to train the children “how to perform mass school shootings,” The Daily mail had reported.

The compound, located near the Colorado border, is linked to “extreme Muslims,” according to various reports, includingFox News.

The New York Post had revealed that Siraj Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam of the same name, who is 68 years old and leads the Masjid At-Taqwa in Bedford-Stuyvesant, according to several congregants.

“Prosecutors named the elder Siraj Wahhaj — born Jeffrey Kearse — as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He also was a character witness in the trial of convicted terror plotter Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman,” The Post reported.

The imam was at one point on a list of people who “may be alleged as co-conspirators” to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, court documents released by prosecutors Wednesday said, CBS had reported.

The elder Siraj Wahhaj testified as a character witness for the “blind sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman, who was convicted in 1995 of plotting terror attacks in the United States, CBS said.

There was a monthlong investigation into the disappearance of the younger Wahhaj’s son, 3-year-old Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, who is said to have medical issues and went missing from Georgia in December 2017, Fox said.
