KING DAVID & JONATHAN'S HOMOSEXUALITY




All Christians revere King David as a wise and good King of Israel.But do Christians you realize that King David was, as were most or allof the Prophets of Israel, bisexual, the way that was designed and ordainedby God? Rather than me tell you what the Holy Spirit says the scripturessay, read them for yourself! Open the Bible and read all the relevant surroundingscripture. Don't quit there! You have done only half of the minimum. Thenext step is to humble yourself by getting on your knees -- be thankfulthat Christians don't have to prostrate themselves -- and ask for wisdomand the truth to be manifested to you!

1 Samuel 18:1-4

 1 ¶ And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speakingunto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David,and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

 2 And Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more hometo his father's house.

3 Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him ashis own soul.

4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that [was] upon him,and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow,and to his girdle.

1 Samuel 20:3-4

 3 And David sware (sic) moreover, and said, Thy father certainlyknoweth (sic) that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Letnot Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly [as] the LORD liveth,and [as] thy soul liveth, [there is] but a step between me and death.

 4 Then said Jonathan unto David, Whatsoever thy soul desireth(sic), I will even do [it] for thee.

ANYTHING?

3 Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him ashis own soul.

4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that [was] upon him,and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow,and to his girdle. [This was a very serious gesture, a commitment intheir day!]

1 Samuel 20:4 Then said Jonathan unto David, Whatsoever thy souldesireth (sic), I will even do [it] for thee.

[Sounds like Jonathan loved David more than just as a friend or sibling!]

1 Samuel 20:17 And Jonathan caused David to swear again, becausehe loved him: for he loved him as he loved his own soul.

[Does this not remind you of two homosexual lovers or spouses?]

1 Samuel 20:30 Then Saul's anger was kindled against Jonathan, and hesaid unto him, Thou son of the perverse rebellious [woman], do not Iknow that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion, andunto the confusion of thy mother's nakedness?

[I don't know how many of your friends and/or sibling you could saythis to and not refer to the act of your condemnation as being sex?]

1 Samuel 20:41 [And] as soon as the lad was gone, David arose out of[a place] toward the south, and fell on his face to the ground, and bowedhimself three times: and they kissed one another, and wept one withanother, until David exceeded.

[True. today some friends, some parents and sibling kiss and weep onwith another exceedingly but you would climb on your pusillanimous, religiousbandwagon and label these perverted also!]

2 Samuel 1:26 "...thy love to me was wonderful, PASSING THELOVE OF WOMEN.

I've had known some females as just friends but this is not what Davidis saying.

Was Jonathan and David's love platonic or even as siblings? I don'tknow how your family responds to each other and I have known of a few familiesin which incest was rampant between brothers, sisters, brothers and sisters,father and brothers, father and sisters, mother and brothers and motherand sisters but I doubt this is what the Prophet Samuel is referring to.

Contrary to popular opinion of Professional Faith Merchants, there isno prohibition in 613 Laws of the Mosaic Law nor even the ten commandmentsagainst homosexuality.
