Chuck Swindoll in his book Dropping Your Guard has to this to say about the importance of relationships with in the Body of Christ:


Before anyone can ever be convinced of the value of involvement and mutuality, that person must come to terms with the consequences of isolationism. The fact is, we need each other. The other side of the coin is axiomatic: Without each other, unhealthy and unhappy things happen to us. Empirical studies and psychological analyses strongly suggest that individuals cannot function effectively without deep links to others. Continuous meaningful, and secure bonds are essential or we risk losing our humanity (20).
