You know, the Bible... God's Word? What many say is the "inerrant" Word of God.
Well, I have always been in the God's Word is the truth but stay away from the whole inerrancy debate because it is full of slippery slopes. I always caution my parishioners to be careful that we not worship THE BIBLE instead of worshipping the Christ we find WITHIN its pages.
That being said, here is the love poem, in the Bible. And we're not just talking about love... we are talking about love. This is not the agape love of Christ for his brothers and sisters, this is the love best characterizerd by the word eros. This is passionate love, this is the love of a bride for her bridegroom, these are the words of two lovers... this is also the Word of God about the love he has for his creation.
When Revelation talks about Christ and creation being joined like bride and bridegroom... what kind of love do you think that reflects? Yes God's love for us is much more than a philosophical head nod towards us, God loves us... alot. May our love for him be even a tenth as strong!
