Anti-Biblical One Anothers

An excellent post and reminder form Pastor Ray Ortlund - Immanuel Church, Nashville, TN (posted on his blog) . . .

“One anothers” I can’t find in the New Testament
Jun. 28 2010 - Ray Ortlund

Humble one another, scrutinize one another, pressure one another, embarrass one another, corner one another, interrupt one another, defeat one another, disapprove of one another, run one another’s lives, confess one another’s sins, intensify one another’s sufferings, point out one another’s failings . . . .

In a soft environment, where we settle for a false peace with present evils, we turn on one another. In a realistic environment, where we are suffering to advance the gospel, our thoughts turn to how we can stick up for one another.

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends.” John 15:12-13
