Disconnection: The Fear of Being Alone Dr. Jeremiah continues: “Disconnected” is how I describe our modern world. Cities are impersonal, the Internet is replacing face-to-face interaction, and people flit from state to state and marriage to marriage.One of the first things God said about human beings is that it was not good for man to be alone, so God created a counterpart for the man. But in a sinful world, even God’s plan for intimacy and relationships has suffered. The Bible doesn’t hide that fact. By mirroring this human reality, Scripture motivates us to work at keeping intimate relationships alive in our life.
