Can you love Jesus but not His bride?

I was bored and looking around on facebook just now, a I read this in someone’s profile:

I’ve been a Christian for 9 years. Went to church for about 8 of those years and then realized that God was calling us to something different – something out of the box. We have a small home group that meets at our house now and I don’t think we will ever attend an actual modern day church again – Love Jesus just don’t love what church has become.

I know this person. I know that she loves Jesus. I don’t want to judge her heart or her motives. I just want to ask the question in the title of this post.

What do you think?
