I've been listening to a few sermons on loneliness.
Orthodox Sermons have some good sermons on it.Coping with loneliness - Fr Anthony MessehFace 2 Face Graduate Retreat
As I was listening, a few questions started to pop into my mind.
Is God the complete solution to loneliness? And if HE is then Adam out of all people should not have felt alone at ALL because he had GOD all to himself. So how does God say that Adam was alone when he has God all to himself?
[quote author=Gen 2:18]
And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” Gen 2:18
How was man alone when he had God?
Why was it necessary for God to create a companion for Adam when only God can satisfy our feeling of loneliness? Eve can't be the solution to Adam's loneliness because she is not perfect. God is perfect and knows exactly how to satisfy our every need.
Is companionship important to the solution of loneliness or is God sufficient?
I would love to hear Fr Peter's spiritual words on this.
