Confused...

  • No, Anon. It's obviously allegorical.

  • Lexylex is right.

    There are many places in the Bible that refer to the church as the bride of Christ. We are to wait for his return as a bride waits for her bridegroom...expectantly, full of love, excitement for the new life to come. He is also lover of our souls. It doesn't have anything to do with sexuality. Men are instructed to love their wives as Christ loves the church (sacrificially, passionately, truthfully), so on. Really all the questions you seek are in the Bible, you just have to read it.
