So recently I came across an issue with myself. I, being a teenager, am extremely sexual. There are times I have to fight the urge to think of my female friends (Which granted, is rare.) with sexual lust. When you're aroused it is really difficult to make your mind change the subject. I instantly start to feel wrong or dirty when my mind goes in that direction and there are often times my mind stays there all day and I have to resort to masturbation to get on with my life (So yes, there are times I am stuck at school not doing my work because my mind is elsewhere and I have to wait 'till I get home to do work). It is hard to avoid thinking of sex when it's almost all you talk about when you go to a public high school. Yes, they aren't direct mentionings of sex, but if you are already in that mind set anything that's "inuendous" at all instantly becomes wrong. I read this and I now have a sort of different view on how if masturbation is overused it can be bad for you spiritually so it really comes down to who you are as a person. It's a personal thing and everybody is different. My question is: Is it bad to lust after a character that you created yourself? As in some kind of OC or temporary mate?
This is to all members who are struggling with masturbation and porn problems. I leave you the Word of God, which is complete, which stands alone in Its Truth, which is enough to give wisdom for the salvation of the Soul, which is the light of our path. I've been freed from both masturbation and porn addiction over 2 years ago. God is Almighty. God bless you. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. Gal 5:16 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. James 1:14-15 Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. 1 Peter 2:11 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Cor 6:19-20 But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Eph 5:3 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. Rom 13:14 Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God. 2 Cor 7:1 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Mat. 5:28
I just had to put the title in caps to catch the eyes of many because we are being deceived by some people who call themselves christians here on CTF teaching that masturbation is not a sin. I don't want to start hearing about "well, what if my doctor asks me for my sperm and I need to ejaculate, is it a sin then?" That is a totally different case and I'm here to make things clear. My intentions are not to be hard on anyone but I come with the love of Christ to warn everyone that reads this. All glory and honor to God and his Son Jesus Christ forever and ever, amen. Brothers, I've been on CTF for more than a year already and I have read so many topics regarding to masturbation. I know there are so many young christian men out there that are suffering from their masturbation addiction and would like to stop. I want to write this as clear as possible and I am writing to you with all truth and knowledge regarding this topic. I want to point out to watch out for members of this forum who teach that the act of masturbating is not a sin. Do not be deceived by this false teaching. God's word clearly and constantly warns us to clean our clothes, to wash them so that they are not filthy because we cannot present ourselves filthy before God, we cannot enter His Kingdom while being filthy. The act of masturbating is a filthy pleasure. It's self seeking and it's done because you want to feel the pleasure. God warns us in his word to stay away from the desires of our flesh and to deny ourselves constantly. It is very clear and I say again that we all know that masturbating is done because a person feels the need, the desire to FEEL pleasure. If you study the Word of God, you will find out that when God talks about sexual activities that are approved by Him, He's talking about MARRIAGE. God intended sex to be after marriage. He blesses those who decide to preserve their bodies in honor of God's will until they are married to THEN have sex. The act of masturbation is a sexual activity with yourself! This falls under the category of FILTH which is a deed of the FLESH. God warns us in His word that a good tree cannot bring bad fruits nor a bad tree can bring forward good fruits. Only a good tree can bring good fruits and a bad one can bring bad fruits. Any tree that brings forward bad fruits are cut and thrown into the fire that never stops burning. Brothers please understand this. This is serious and it just urges me time and time again to warn you constantly about this sin. Don't be fooled by people who tell you that masturbation is NOT a sin. Why do you feel so guilty when you masturbate? Because you know it's wrong and the Holy Spirit is guiding you telling you to STOP! Stop it once and for all brothers. Please! You never know when your time will come to be judged after you die and you do not want to get caught in the sin of FILTHINESS. God bless you all and may the peace of God and His Holy Spirit be with you and guiding you. Glory and Honor to the Father God. Amen.
