Even before sin entered the world, which separated us from God, there was something missing from our lives. The first obstacle for God was not sin, it was man’s loneliness. Adam was never meant to be left alone in this world – so God created Eve as his companion.
Loneliness is a lot different than being alone. God wired us to have a community and relationship with other people. When we get into our own little world – it’s not healthy.
