the city is metaphorically the Bride of Christ. this can be correctly metaphorically stated by "the city is the Bride of Christ" SeeWrong.
A simile is NOT "a type of metaphor".
Similes and metaphors are DIFFERENT, they are forms of COMPARISON.
No, Seth... You NENER said, "the city is metphorically the Bride of Christ".
You said that the city IS the Bride of Christ.
Nor do I have to.
If I did, you simply argue with it anyway, and I'm not interested in wasting my time.
My purpose here was simply to refute your false claim that the new Jerusalem has the IDENTITY of being the Bride of Christ.
So my purpose is finished here.
Are you now claiming that the New Jerusalem is NOT actually the Bride of Christ, but simply a "metaphor" for the Bride of Christ?
Rev 20:9+10 the angel shows John the Bride, pointing to the New Jerusalem
