Transsexual church?

Nathan Colquhoun offers these thoughts on the church as the bride of Christ:
The church throughout the bible is considered and called the bride of Christ. Christ is the groom. In this allegory we are Christ’s bride meant to serve and worship him in spirit and in truth. All too often I find that we are so busy serving and worshiping ourselves. We entertain ourselves with our programs, worship ourselves with our money and satisfy ourselves with a quick altar call. It’s almost as if we ourselves are trying to become the groom. Everything that we are commanded to be for the groom we become for ourselves. Are we not happy with being the bride?
I'd never thought of it that way before.
