Fictional "One Anothers"

Many students of the Bible are aware of the numerous "one anothers" in the New Testament (e.g., Rom 15:7; Gal 6:2; Eph 4:2; Col 3:16; etc.). But Ray Ortland has a thoughtful post on the "one anothers" that are not found in the NT but seem to practiced all too often by Christians. Here is Ortland's list but make sure to read the entire post here.
Sanctify one another, humble one another, scrutinize one another, pressure one another, embarrass one another, corner one another, interrupt one another, defeat one another, sacrifice one another, shame one another, judge one another, run one another’s lives, confess one another’s sins, intensify one another’s sufferings, point out one another’s failings . . . .
