Where exactly in that verse does it say that the church is the bride of Jesus? I don't even see the word church.
I too would like that question answered, especially as the root origin for the word "church" is "Circe," a Greek Goddess.
But wait a minute, the Greeks wrote the first NT, didn't they? Stands to reason that would use one of their favorite Goddesses.

No, you do not. You are a big man for admitting that, some cannot you know. I also know this is because of the recent find that suggests Jesus had a
wife, and you think this is just wrong. Right? Well, let's face it, the lies of the Church are being exposed, one by one, more and more of late. Best
think you can do is set your mind to seeking, and look further than your magick book. There is a world of knowledge out there, best viewed without the
Christian filter. And saying you are a servant of truth is a misnomer, "truth" is a subjective thing, not a "person," and as such, only a
"person" can be a "Lord,
" or a
" So, to be a
" you need a person to own you. You are not a slave, are you?
All words have meaning, you just can't make up meanings for them. A final thought on the matter, a quote:
"Truth is beyond social acceptance. Truth is maladjusted and cannot fit into the massively dumb patterns of ordinary relationships and activities.
... Greater truth cannot come to those who never bring up the possibility of it to one another. ... People do not inquire beyond their knowledge
because they do not want to have any disturbing shift in their knowledge pattern. The cognitive system is calm and stable through avoiding any
disturbing new truth" (Gabriel Chiron, "Truth is Greater Than Man").
