Don't believe the lie that this is an addiction. It is perfectly natural human sexual behavior to masterbate. The human species has done this for millions of years and to feel guilty about it and say it is an addiction is a lie emanating from religion, and not based on any facts about what addiction is.
I have a problem with this too, i masturbate 4 to 5 times a week and i'm only 17. When i start working i'm going to a program to stop this because it makes you think about sex too much and also make you ejaculate too fast and when this happends you wont satisfy you're girlfriend at all. personally, i think this is a serious problem because you actually can't stop so do what i'm about to do and go to a program, it migh be you're best option i already try everything nothing.
I#039;ve read five different versions of the bible. I have read the King James version four times with a different study guide each time. Not once have I seen masturbation even mentioned in the bible. A man named Onan is claimed to have quot;spilled his seed on the groundquot;. Many people take this to mean he was masturbating and that was his sin. They are completely wrong. He spilled his seed on the ground while having sex with his sister-in-law. THAT was his sin. The bible tells us to avoid perversions and immorality. Masturbation is normal and unless you are fantasizing about something extremely freaky or illegal... don#039;t sweat it. I've noticed nobody who comments and claims it's a sin can quote a verse supporting them. Isnt it odd that nearly every sin imaginable is mentioned by name in the bible but masturbation isn't?
The devils job is to make people sin more and deny that its a sin and say its normal behavior. It is a sin all you can do is pray harder and try doing things to distract you from it. Man is wicked and the devil uses denial and peoples ignorance as a tool to make others sin. A sin is a sin even though it may be considered normal by man. We have to decide who or what is more important God & Our salvation? Or giving in to sin for a temporary pleasure? God leaves us that choice. Our eternal future is based on the choices we make for ourselves.
These scriptures may help you with your feelings of guilt: Matthew 7:7 "Keep on asking and it will be given to you" (Keep praying about it). Proverbs 24:16 "The righteous one may fall even seven times, and he will certainly get up" and Psalms 86:5 "God is ready to forgive."
OMG, MASTURBATION IS NOT A SIN!!!! You are perfectly fine to do it. You'd be in the minority, if you didn't. Factually, it is a bad thing NOT to masturbate. According to Dr. Oz, you will live longer if you do, or have sex, well, you get the idea. ENJOY!
The only reference the bible makes is that we should abstain from earthly pleasures. Like watching tv, reading non-religious material, not porn, but science. This was brought about by priest in the dark ages to control the minds of the population. It is a nature act and once your old enough to do it. It can be a healthy thing for your prostate gland and testicles they are not designed to remain unused. But if it bothers your religious beliefs, remember the Jesus I know of died so we can be forgiven when sin and he didn't put a limit on how often we can ask
