How Beautiful and Pleasant You are, O Loved One

I think we, as the Church of Jesus Christ ought not get so bent out of shape when others (especially unbelievers) judge us and ridicule us for our behavior.

I hear a lot about what is wrong with the Church today and I've even said things myself.

So what is wrong with the Church today? Nothing. It's a spotless bride. Jesus Christ has adorned her with his own righteousness. Her only problem is that she doesn't fully understand that fact.

"I am very dark, but lovely."

"Behold, you are beautiful, my love, behold you are beautiful!"

We are beautiful because He has called us so.

Good thought, Boo. :D

I love the "I am very dark BUT lovely" quote from Song of Solomon.

The Church may not do all the right things, but she is beautiful simply because He has made her beautiful.
