A basic Christian primer on sex, marriage and family life. Article 8 – The importance of friendship.

Mar 30, 2020 by

by Martin Davie: As we saw in the previous article in this series, God calls human beings to be either single or married. What both of these vocations have in common is that they are undergirded by a call to friendship. The key biblical passage that tells us this is John 15:12-17 where Jesus’ speaks to his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion: ‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
