"The loneliness of a Born Again Christian results from a person's walk with God in an ungodly world.  A walk that must often take the person away from the fellowship of good Christians as well as from that of the unregenerate world.  God-given instincts cry out for companionship with others of his kind, others who can understand their longings, the aspirations, the absorption in the love of Christ; and because within the circle of friends, there are so few who share the inner experiences he/she is forced to walk alone!
The person who has passed on into the divine Presence in actual inner experience will not find many who understand and few who care to talk about that which is the supreme object of their passions, so he/she is often silent and preoccupied in the midst of noisy religious shoptalk. For this, the person earns the reputation of being dull and over-serious, so he/she is avoided and the gulf between society widens.  A "born again" believer searches for friends upon whose Spirit he/she can detect has been Born Again with the same mind and heart for Jesus. Unfortunately, few there be that find it he/she keep these things in their heart.  It is this very loneliness that throws one back upon God. The inability to find human companionship drives one to seek in God what he/she can find nowhere else."
