Many people twist scripture for their own wicked purposes, and this chapter is one that has been widely abused. The sincere love that Jonathon and David had for one another was passionate--you can't love someone as your own soul without a depth of passion, which is how God says Jonathon loved David. But the Bible always puts the honest facts about the individuals in the Holy Book. If there had been any homosexual activity between the two, it would say so outright. 

I believe the actions of Jonathon and David show that it is possible to have uncommon love, one man toward another, without sinning against God. Our society today attempts to shove young people into homosexual behavior by sending the false message that it's not only okay but it's the hippest thing going. The problem is, of course, that homosexual behaviors are an abomination to God, as it says in Romans 1:18-32 and elsewhere in the Bible
