God gave masturbation to us as a gift to pleasure outselves sexually without a partner, the only wrong thing is to lust after a woman. x=

You have to decide whether you are going to follow every single things that the church says or are you just gonna select which parts your going to listen to. It's your choice. It depends on how devoted you are to your faith.

There are no such things as strangers.
Only friends that we have not yet met.

It's completely up to your own moral beliefs.
I however, wouldn't think any god would condemn more than 90% of the male population for a private, pleasurable matter. Plus, it's better than having premarital sex in Christianity, right? So why not relieve the tension?

Porn is a bit more controversial, but still generally acceptable, although technically illegal for <18.

personally, I don't think religion or anything else should come in the way of human impulses. What The church tells you isn't what u have to follow--instead u shud be individualistic. Porn and masturbation are typical of teens, so it's perfectly fine to do it.

christians disagree on whether masturbation is good or bad. if ur a christian then porn is definitely wrong. i kno some say that u should never masturbate but others say that as long as it doesn't rule your life then masturbating once in a while is ok.

Well technically it is because God says not to commit adultery, which can mean masturbation... But God also loves you no matter the circumstances. 95% of men masturbate; the other 5% lie about it. I wouldn't worry.

Hope this helps!

I don't think that masturbation is wrong in God's eyes, however I'd say that pornography would be. But above shows what those people find OK as pornography being Christians.

For all of you who think that masturbation isn't wrong from God's perspective, you are wrong. It is wrong but he made us this way, he could have made us to not masturbate, but he didn't, did he? But who cares anyway, if it's good just do it.

This question comes up a lot, and it's hard to answer. Everyone has to decide for themselves what's Ok.

However, you might want to keep a few things in mind. First everyone masturbates, it's a universal activity. Second, the drive, that urge, is caused by biology, it's a natural thing that is impossible to control, it's like blinking or sweating. Lastly, what makes you a 'Good' person is measured by what's in your heart, and what your actions are with respect to other living things. It's how you live yor life, how you treat others. Most people have an incomplete understanding of Faith and religion, focusing only on the restrcitions. Religion (and God) are much more complex than that, if you study religion and talk with people of true Faith (not the blowhards who preach about it in purely ideological terms), you'll get a far more balanced, and very sympathetic view not only of religion in general, but masturbation specifically.

You have a very strange definition of adultery. Adultery is sex where at least one of the 2 people involved is married to someone else. Its impossible to commit adultery on your own.

Hi Lan_Man, i hope the following information is ok, i found it from a site which is sourced at the bottom.


Is Masturbation A Sin?

Question:


"I don't see anyone in the Bible being called a sinner for masturbating. Also, Jesus said that if a man even looks at a woman lustfully he has already committed adultery with her in his heart. What does it mean to look at her lustfully?"

Answer:

The Bible does not specifically condemn masturbation, nor does the Bible specifically condone it. This tends to be one of those "taboo" subjects that people don't often talk about, but if it is a sin then it's important for us to know that. I have tried to deal with this subject carefully, but please forgive me if anything I say makes you uncomfortable. Personally, I don't believe that God cringes at the subject of masturbation (or any other subject), so we should try to set our fleshly reactions aside for a moment in order to seek God's view on the matter. Possibly you will be surprised at my conclusions (I certainly was!), and perhaps you will disagree with me, but it's important that we don't allow our feelings to dictate our beliefs.

Everyone has biases, and personally I always assumed that masturbation was probably a sin. But instead of trying to defend my bias, I wanted to find out what God's view is towards masturbation. Here's what I discovered when I studied the Christian arguments against masturbation and compared them with the Bible.
