And you are nominated once again! You always have wonderful, spiritually uplifting, helpful and informational posts.
I'm glad you gave the answer that you gave because there is no way I'd be able to stop cold turkey. I mean it's very hard to control and there are temptations all over the place. But I don't think I really outwardly lust for any woman. I mean I'll look and see what they look like. But I usually don't stare and start drooling. Sometimes, even when I'm not looking at anything thoughts will pop up. It just happens. I know we've discussed it before so you don't have to reply or say much. I just wanted to share that thought. Great post.
I dont think there is anything wrong with looking at women/men... admiring their beauty and attributes, its when it becomes lustful that it falls in to that danger danger danger zone! LOL
DM... you're popping them out!!
i love it!!!
I guess so! How about that?
and it was greaT
I wouldnt think that everyone does.. but it is a subject that many wonder about...
Rev. Nicky Gumbel says there's nowhere in the Bible that actually condemns it, but we have to be aware that it can become obsessive, it depersonalises sex and it's associated with lust.
Since the Holy Spirit filled me, my sex drive has decreased - which is a good thing when i reflect on my former life. However, last night the Enemy must have snuck into my dreams because when i woke up i wouldn't have been able to sleep again without masturbating. That was a sin because the fantasy was angry. Fortunately when i prayed for forgiveness i felt lifted and today's been a really awesome God praising day.
Your blogs are so cool
Yes.. please be careful about angry fantasy's.. by angry I am not sure you are referring to a 'rape' or aggressive style fantasy or not..Next time that urge comes over you to masterbate, try to think of loving things..loving yourself.. .and that its ok..not a guilty thing to do at all....
No, no, no definitely not angry in that way. Maybe angry's not the word i need. But it wasn't a loving one. Since God i've been so much better than what i used to be.
THere is more to answering the question about masterbation than simply judging what feels good and or how far is to far too go. Jesus tells us, if your "right" hand offends you. Cut it off! Fo r it is far better to be without one or two arms than to risk going to hell for eternity.
When a young man was to have had a noctural emmission, while asleep, a "wet dream" he was put out of the camp for a "jewish day" and called unclean.
Jesus tells us not to lust forlust leads to adulty which is considered murder. Therefore, God says, that if we ave lust we are as guilty of murder as if we have killed someone. And when we look under a microscope... do we not see sperm swimming around in the petri dish? Are not the spermazoians living? If we masterbate...where do the spermsazoids go? They natural die because theeir is not a viable host for them to live in. Is that not murder? Just as if we took a fish out of water and simply place it on the ground and left it there, that too is murder. Is it not?
So, what is the correct answer for, "is masterbation OK?"
