Charles H. Spurgeon:
The church is not perfect, but woe to the man who finds pleasure in pointing out her imperfections!
Christ loved his church, and let us do the same.
I have no doubt that the Lord can see more fault in his church than I can; and I have equal confidence that he sees no fault at all. Because he covers her faults with his own love—that love which covers a multitude of sins; and he removes all her defilement with that precious blood which washes away all the transgressions of his people.
