People sometimes quote this Bible verse "Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?" to show that tho persons can not have friendship if they don´t agree about everything. That is a lie. If that was a true no one could have friendship with anyone.

Let us look at this verse in context:

Amos 3:1-6
Hear this word that the Lord has spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying:

“You only have I known of all the families of the earth;
Therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.”

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
Will a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey?
Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he has caught nothing?
Will a bird fall into a snare on the earth, where there is no trap for it?
Will a snare spring up from the earth, if it has caught nothing at all?
If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid?
If there is calamity in a city, will not the Lord have done it?

Do you see that it is about relationship with GOD and not between people?
