One-Anothering: An Aspect of Progressive Sanctification
by Dr. Jim Halla
Genres: Christian Living
The Bible contains many “one another” passages for the building up of the saints and the strengthening of the Church. But what does “One Anothering” (OAN) look like in a post-pandemic world? How can we build up the Church and love one another as Christ has loved us?
In One-Anothering: An Aspect of Progressive Sanctification, Dr. Jim Halla takes a closer look at the over fifty New Testament passages that command various activities of OAN to help the reader understand just how to honor God as presented in Ephesians 4:11-14. With social injustice, racial tensions, and political divisions facing American Christians today, we need OAN more than ever. Discover how the truths and commands in God’s Word are still needed in today’s ever-changing world.
A native of Houston, Texas, now residing in Spartanburg, SC. Dr. Halla retired from the full-time practice of rheumatology after four decades. Besides ministering in the office, he authored or co-authored several scientific articles that addressed various clinical issues that every rheumatologist faces in the practice of medicine. He now spends his time developing the concept of the practice of biblical-based medicine and counseling. The practice of medicine is under increasing duress from many sides, both within and outside the Church. Both physician and patient must be aware that man is body and soul and as such is a whole person. The two are linked and must not be separated. To that end he has authored several books and articles including Pain: The Plight of Fallen Man; True Competence in Medicine: Practicing Biblical Based-Medicine in a Fallen World; Being Christian in Your Medical Practice; A Biblical Approach to Receiving Medical Care; How to be a God-Pleasing Patient; Endurance: What it is and How it Looks in the Believer’s Life; Joy in Grief: God’s Answer for Hard Times; Depression Through a Biblical Lens: A Whole-Person Approach; God’s Wisdom and Comfort for Troubled Times; Biblical Counseling: What and How,“What to Do When Your Body Fails You”; Rheumatism; and “When Your Body Betrays You.”
