Why Can't We Be Friends Why Can't We Be Friends

Avoidance Is Not Purity

by Byrd, Aimee

The church stands firm against culture on many issues of sexuality . . . but misses this one! Society says we are merely sexual beings and should embrace this, and in the church we use this same view as an excuse to distrust and avoid each other! We shy away from healthy friendships, and even our siblingship in Christ, in the name of purity and reputation . . . but is this what we are called to do? The author reminds us that the way to stand against culture is not by allowing it to drive us apart—it is by seeking the brother-and-sister closeness we are privileged to have as Christians. Here is a plan for true, godly friendship between the sexes that embraces the family we truly are in Christ and serves as the exact witness the watching world needs. Endorsements “With this book, the author has done a great service to the church. At a time when society at large is questioning the meaning of friendship in general and the legitimacy of friendship between men and women, she challenges her readers to test their responses and determine whether they are dictated by Scriptures or by culture and tradition. The answers might surprise you. Read this book even if you think you are already the best of friends. You will find many unexpected questions and insightful recommendations. If you have children, it will help you to establish in them, from an early age, good habits of friendship and sibling relationships.” - Simonetta Carr, Author, Broken Pieces and the God Who Mends Them and the Christian Biographies for Young Readers series
