Re: new member needs advice
You don't have an obligation to believe in a religion solely because your parents do. Belief is belief. If you don't really believe in it, and just force yourself into it for comfort, it isn't real faith. This is probably a question better suited for a religious forum. If you really do believe that masturbation is wrong under your religion, try not to do it. It's really that simple. Most religions say you can't apply human constructs to divine things. So, you may have to sacrifice something you don't understand the wrongness of. But that's a matter of your individual faith. We can't tell you what to believe.
I know that isn't a very satisfying answer, but I hope it's of some help.
