Solomon not Christ I don't know where you stand on racially charged sermons, but your interpretation of Song 5:10 and the woman's failure to open the door are, with all due respect, likely to be misunderstood. The verse clearly talks about Solomon not Christ. "My beloved is white and ruddy" does not speak to Christ's complexion. Christ wasn't born yet, and the Songs are not prophetic; therefore, saying that "Christ's character is seen in his complexion" is your personal opinion as you said. You also say the woman was lazy and failed to open to her lover, while Song 5:5 says she did open but he was gone. Again, personal opinion.In Song 5:5 we see that she put on her coat and defiled her feet to open the door, so what makes her lazy? Because she's black? Maybe her lover was a bit too impatient? Christ is not, so only the deep love described in Songs can be analogically applied to Christ and His Church. Solomon is not a type of Christ. Solomon is said to be "white and ruddy" not Christ. Christ is described in Rev 1.
