Here comes the bride

Revelation 19:7 says that church is the bride of Christ. But1 Corinthians  6:9 says “Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, sodomites”.  It seems that male prostitutes and sodomites related to sissy. And sissy of course at least related to crossdresser.

Paragraph above seems to make us confused. God wants us to be His bride. And bride gender is female. But in another time, He through His apostle said that our kind won’t inherit His kingdom, won’t go to heaven. How can it be ?

Maybe the reason why He supposes His people as His bride is because marriage is a holy matrimony, a very sacred relationship. And of  course because He is male, so we are described as female as His bride.

So now  the crossdressers maybe can have a reason to say, so we can do crossdressing ourselves as His bride. Crossdressing for God ? It’s like a twist facts or word game. Isn’t it ?

But that is all just my fiction only. I myself actually still confused. So someone please comment my article. Thanks in advance

  1. The church as the bride of Christ is a metaphor, for a wonderful spiritual reality. But that doesn’t mean the church is female. It’s just like the metaphor, God is a lion. In some ways the two things are similar, in some ways they are different. God is strong like a lion, but he doesn’t have fuzzy paws. Like a husband and wife love each other, so Jesus and the church love each other. As a husband would lay down his life for his wife, so Jesus did already lay down his life for the church. As a wedding is a huge celebration, there will be a big celebration for Jesus and the church when Jesus returns to the earth. But the church is not a female person. The church is a group of people, male and female Christians. The church is not a literal bride married to Jesus. That would make Jesus homosexual and polygamous. Don’t stretch the metaphor. In no possible way can this metaphor support crossdressing.

    On the 1 Corinthians passage:
    9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

    Notice that Paul says, “and that is what some of you were.” All of us fit into those categories in one way or another. We are all sinful. But that is what we were. When we are in Christ, we are washed from our sins and justified through Jesus living the perfect life for us that we did not live. This verse does not single out homosexuals or crossdressers. The point is that imperfect sinful people cannot go to Heaven. But Jesus stands in for us and gives us his righteousness.

    Now that we are in Jesus, it’s not that we are perfect. We still sin even though God attributes Jesus’ perfect righteousness to us. But we still sin every day. But we no longer live in a lifestyle of sin. We fight against it. We are continually becoming more holy through the process of sanctification and the work of the Holy Spirit. When we fail in sin, we confess and repent and keep on fighting. And we keep on sinning less, until finally when Jesus comes again to this earth he will make us perfect and we never sin again.

    This verse does not mean that if you sin once you are going to hell. It does not mean that you go to hell if you sin as a Christian. It’s talking about purposefully giving into these sins as a lifestyle without repentance and without being washed in Jesus.
