Test #6 Becoming an Anti-Christ – Continued
In our last post, I settled on the topic of church life through a computer monitor, and how this may be a trap. In the post, I challenged the reader to fulfill the “one another” commands, while attending a virtual church meeting that is becoming so acceptable in this society.
As I researched this list, it shocked me as to the volume of verses that contain the phrase “one another” This list does not contain passages that define brotherly love other than with the term “one another” This list only includes that one specific term.
Although lengthy, take your time and consider the consistency of this command throughout the New Testament.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.
Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,
Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another.
Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.
1 Corinthians 7:5
Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
1 Corinthians 11:33
So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another–
1 Corinthians 12:25
that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
1 Corinthians 16:20
All the brothers send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
2 Corinthians 13:12
Greet one another with a holy kiss.
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,
submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices
bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
1 Thessalonians 3:12
and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you,
1 Thessalonians 4:9
Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another,

1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:15

2 Thessalonians 1:3
We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.
But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,
not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
1 Peter 1:22
Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,

Greet one another with the kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.

And now I ask you, dear lady–not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning–that we love one another.
Enjoy fellowship with the saints. Love one another. Turn the one eyed bandit off! Be with the saints!
