Should the Song of Solomon be considered Sacred text?


Basically what I am asking is; does the Song of Solomon describe love for God or is it carnal love of a man and woman? I think it can be agreed that it is beautiful poetry, but is it Sacred poetry?

    Thank you for your answer, voted up. The question that this question implies is that just because something is generally considered sacred text, does that necessarily make it so?

    For thousands of years people thought that a tomato was a vegetable. So why would it not be?

    Believing something is Canon by a majority group does not mean the minority is wrong.
