Archive for the ‘one another’ tag
Monday, we will discuss my weekly article in Heartlight called “Church?” and talk about the whole issue of “church.” Essential to that discussion are the “one another” passages of the New Testament. I wanted to put those here on the blog so we all could have access to them, but also so that we could begin thinking through what implications these message have on the way we live our lives in community — whether we call that community “church” or not. (These come from searching “one another” and “each other” in the NASB and the NIV — the links are to the searchgodsword.org interlinear of NASB and Greek.
