Scripture spoke of John, the disciple Jesus loved, John 13-23. King David also loved Jonathan, 1 Samuel 18 verse 1, here it says that they became one in spirit, this was a spiritual love not a sexual one. David was heterosexual as proved by his lust for Bathsheba. The reason I am writing this is to highlight the love between men. Throughout history we see men forming deep friendships with each other, men go fishing together, play games together, drink together, fight and die together and the love between them is very often deep, yet not in a sexual way. I am convinced that the love between men is often an unspoken love that, for fear of misunderstanding, is made light of and reduced to a lesser importance through the use of banter and merriment, but even so it is the kind of love that will see a soldier weeping, broken- hearted, at the graveside of a lost comrade. I believe that love between men is of God and should be highly revered; however, as we are aware, wherever there is a gift from God we have an enemy that will endeavour to contaminate it. This we see in homosexuality, here we see a gift of God, the powerful love between men, sexualised and brought to shame by Satan, who pollutes all the gifts of God. When homosexual men speak of the love they have for the men their hearts are given to, they speak the truth, and for anyone to deny or denigrate that is to not understand the gift of God at all. That is why the homosexual man can claim that those who decry their love have no understanding, and they are to some degree right, and without the moral compass of scripture, which is now being sidelined in a world where Satan is god, this is indeed understandable. Christians, though, if they read their scriptures, should understand and be able to explain to men, who have been deceived, that the love they have for one another is, when uncontaminated, blessed by God. However, if the gift is made unclean by the act of Sodomy, which is the choice of the person involved, then the penalties that have been warned will be enacted.
