If you love Jesus, you have to love his church because that's what Christ gave himself for. The majority of the books of the Bible are written to churches, not individuals, and so it's not just about individuals and Jesus, but about the church and Jesus. We love the church, and we know the church isn't perfect, but what matters is if we treat her with the heart of a critic or of a servant.
