In Revelations the Bible talks about a "new bride". I just got back from a trip to LA and was able to witness a church service from the lobby of a mega church there. The sermon was given by a young lady who was preaching to the crowd about the grace of Jesus Christ. Many of the happenings we are witnessing today relate to prophecies, or laws, in revelations yet to be fulfilled. One of these has to do with a new bride, or church, for Christ when he returns.
There are a lot of people who have been turned off by the message of the church today. The bible also talks about the church being assailed by Satan and enduring. However this endurance is to be made possible by Christ's relationship to the new Church and it's change to the image that God prefers.
