isn't that considered the sin of Onan, besides, don't you think i could get rid of testosterone by doing something else, like exercising?


The thing with Onan is usually used to say masturbation is wrong. However, if you read it in context the sin of Onan was not fathering a child by his (dead) brothers wife. The Bible doesn't say anything about masturbation as far as I know. In moderation it can be a release, but don't get addicted! Also be careful of what thoughts you have. If you start thinking lustfully about any females you know then maybe you shouldn't do it.

On another note: Why don't you ask God for guidance instead of ATS'ers? He knows you better than anyone. You should maybe talk it over with another male christian that you can trust as well, if you don't feel you can talk to your church leader, pastor or priest.

My reason for asking is, the swear word that wasn't necessary in your post. As a Christian, you shouldn't swear. A tree is known by it's fruit.

As far as your problem, You need to read the Bible daily for 2 reasons. To draw closer to God and learn what He says about everything. You will hear from God and be changed. You will discover what is right and wrong. Since you want to triumph over this, you need to remember that The Holy Spirit in you, will give you the prompting and strength to say no, but it's your choice to listen to Him and act upon it. Lustful thoughts can lead to sin, so do not act upon them in any way(pornography of any kind) as that will only lead you on into the temptation.

Remember Christ died for your sins, He suffered an agonizing death in your place. When this sin or any sin begins to creep in, remind yourself of that ,and determine in your mind that you don't want to hurt Jesus anymore than you already have.

Once saved the Christian life is a day by day battle because,

Ephesians 6:[11] Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
[12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

and

1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

you wanna know what i think as a devout agnostic (saying that always makes me laugh)?

as a christian, any shortcomings or sins you may commit are forgiven. it's nice to try and control urges you don't want, but if it's that difficult for you to control yourself, then i don't see where it's a problem unless you're hurting other people.

what might be best for you is finding a monogamous relationship that you can take seriously. until then, masturbation is not a crime in anyones eyes except muslims and pentacostals.

hey man, just because something is difficult doesn't mean i'm gonna give up, when i made a decision to follow christ, i knew it wasn't gonna be easy. sure, anyone can fulfill there fleshly desires, its the easiest thing in the world to do, but i would rather try to overcome those weakenesses.

i'm not saying you should give up if it's difficult, either. i'm just saying maybe you should look at whether or not it's something you believe strongly enough in. if you do, well...more power to you.

That's the worst thing you can do.



Marriage is much better than lunar abstinence.

However, the celibate one should at least Transmute through Pranayama before giving into such a foul vice such as masturbation.






Religions of the World




It is Kabbalistically stated that Adam (Humanity) had two wives, Lilith and Nahemah.












Lilith is the Mother of abortion, incest, homosexuality, contraception and pederasty, etc.












Nahemah is the Mother of adultery, lust, fornication and sexual abuse, etc.





The Infernal Worlds within the interior of the Earth are divided into two inhuman spheres: Lilith and Nahemah.

In this epoch of racial devolution, the multitudes of the Left are devolving within the submerged spheres of Lilith and Nahemah.











The path that leads to the Abyss is paved with good intentions.

The Abyss is filled with sincerely mistaken ones.

Fornicators and the enemies of sex are abundant in the Infernal Worlds.

Homosexuals, lesbians, the henchmen of Lilith, who sterilize themselves and women who use contraceptives, devolve within the Infernal Worlds.

The supporters of induced abortion and the women who wilfully abort are also seen in the sphere of Lilith.

Male and female adulterers of the world are also found in the sphere of Nahemah.

The Great Illuminated Beings, that is to say, Sabaoth, fight in order to make the multitudes of the Left comprehend the crude realities of the facts.

Unfortunately, the multitudes of the Left think that they are doing very well.

This terrestrial humanity has reached the maximum of perversity.

Humanity frightfully devolves in this instant of mundane crises and total degeneration.

This devolving terrestrial humanity is entering into the submerged mineral kingdom in surges.

Human beings will destroy each other amongst their own selves in a horrifying way, if the expected cataclysm is delayed too long.

Unquestionably, the ego becomes more and more complicated as time passes.
The complicated ego becomes terribly malignant.

Frightfully, this terrestrial humanity has already failed and will become more and more perverse through time.

To live normally upon the Earth will be something more than impossible within a short period of time.
Malignity will be so great that within a short period of time, human beings will, in fact, have two thoughts in their minds: First, to kill; second, to be killed.

Very shortly, in the direction that we are going, death, assassination, vice and perversity, multiplied to its maximum, will reign in every house.

The great catastrophe that is expected has converted itself into a non-delayable necessity.

Only the great catastrophe can save us from the most horrifying terrors that the ego will let loose over the face of the Earth.

We presently have no more hope, except for the universal blazing Fire. - Samael Aun Weor

i agree with tamahu, masturbation can be very dangerous and addicting, all it will make you do is lust more and think sexual thoughts about everyone you see.

Humbleone,
I praise you for striving towards chastity. Being a Christian Mystic myself, I strive for this state as well and have gone months successfully with no release, other then nigth emissions which I will explain. There are key factors involved to attaining this and there is also a sign that you are on the right path so stay tuned for a long explanation:

First off, as Paul wrote in 1st Corinthians 6:12 NIV version, "Everything is permissable for me - but I will not be mastered by anything." So the road we are treading is to master our thoughts, body, mind, and soul and this takes times, years, decades, and sometimes an entire lifetime. However this is more a calling similar to monkhood and the ascetic lifestyle. You are going for the hard-core spiritual life by doing this.

Again as many of our brothers on this thread have mentioned, it is important to incorporate prayer into your daily life no matter where you are. This helps tremendously. Another important note is that "idleness" is the enemy of your mind and soul. Stay busy at all times. If you get bored then negative thoughts and ideas begin to creep in and direct you. Always keep vigil over your heart in the ways of not letting certain songs, movies, magazines, internet sites into your range. Keep vigil at all times. Don't let your guard down when you are at a spiritual high. I once saw a girl with a short skirt and stared at her legs for so long that it was a subliminal thought I implanted so deep into my conciousness that it led me to fall in some of the worst ways imaginable when it came to casual sex in the past.

Don't put yourself in situations where you are liable to fall. Put pictures of the lord around your computer and as a screen savor. Get porn blockers installed on all your computers and make-sure you don't have the passwords.

The most important commandmant is Love the Lord your God with all you heart, Mind, and Soul. So work on that by constantly thinking about and growing your Love towards God and you will soon be rewarded for this in ways that you never though were possible. Enlightenment through the Holy Spirit is around the corner.

As Tamahu stated earlier that you can perform "Prananyama" breath excercise techniques to transmute your seed and yes early Christians (monks, mystics, priests, ascetics, and so forth) did perfrom these, as we have recorded accounts of this. However your seed and the transmutation of it is not the "holy Spirit" as Tamahu stated.

By doing these breath excercises, you eventually get to a state where you have the ability and control to reverse your seed, but only after it reverses itself first, of which it will go through a system of channels through your belly, spine, back of your neck, to your brain, inside of your face and chin, and back down to where it started in a closed circuit. This is referred to as "Kundalini" and was accounted for as something that has happened to a large number of "saints" and other famous monks, nuns, and other persons of Christ. You do reach and activate certain levels of Enlightenment this way.

However, the Holy Spirit is something that you cannot control and will come upon and descend down into you when it is God's will to do so. The Kundalini rises up and the Holy Spirit Descends down through the top of your head and indwells you all the way to your feet. When the Holy Spirit indwells you, it feels like Hot Liquid Lava of Pure Eletric Love. You instantly go through Ego death and reach the Enlightenment of the Bible. You will become inundated with certain Spiritual gifts and a "Super Strength" ability to control all aspects of sinning, with due time and practice.

With-out this Holy Spirit experience, it is up to your "will power" as to how fair you go, but the further you go and the cleaner you live, the closer you get to that Enlightenment of both Kundalini and the Holy Spirit.

Remember, The Kundalini (your seed) ascends in your body, while the Holy Spirit Descends in your body.

Part 2:

When you are practicing chastity, after about 4-10 days without release, your emission will automatically release itself during urination or during bowel movements when there is pressure on the prostate due to the bowels. You will also have an increased number of wet dreams that will continue for months, but will reside as you continue to purify your thoughts.

There are allot of other key factors, however I cannot openly discuss them here. Please PM me for further details.

Anyone else who is interested in Knowing God/Christ and thriving to live a purified lifestyle with the goal of Enlightenment and pleasing the Lord, feel free to PM me.

were any of the early apostles such as paul or peter known to practice transmuting? can you name some who practiced it?

HA HA HA HA and DOUBLE LOL. How is masturbation dangerous???????? In case you get some in your eyes and trip and fall over onto the top of a running chainsaw while inadvertantly lighting a match inside a room full of gas. You people crack me up with your rules and regulations that some Feckin idiot years ago decided thats what HE wanted.
It might make some people lust more but usually it makes people less 'lustful' but hey its (I was going to say your life but obviously its not - someone else runs you) so, but hey you like be told what to do - you like the safety in the thought that you dont have to think for yourself and someone else will take your hand and walk you through life or maybe you want someone to blame when it all buggers up.

Take control of your own life, your only 18 FFS and it will be a long hard journey if you need to be walked through it.

Edit to add-
You should change the name of this thread because you have NO 'self' control

Shiluhud,
Thanks for the uplifting words. Since you don't know or understand why these things are done, perhaps you should not mock it. What we speak of here is advanced Christianity, the same lifestyle the saints and monks lived/live.

If you can't go a few months with-out masterbating, then masterbation is your master and you are it's slave. The point is to master all things of yourself. Thoughts, body, mind, soul(submission to God).

Again are you the master of your domain, or are there aspects of yourself that are master of you?

If you haven't tried it, please don't mock and have respect for those that do, just as we respect your opnions as long as they are not mockery.

SO its not for mere mortal christians then? (sorry couldn't help it)

If thats what people want to do for themselves its fine by me but why try to master yourself when your never going to be the master of yourself - you are always subservient are you not?


Again are you the master of your domain, or are there aspects of yourself that are master of you?

If you haven't tried it, please don't mock and have respect for those that do, just as we respect your opnions as long as they are not mockery.
No Im not the master of my domain, I live in Britain, Tony Blairs my master, stickin his nose in trying to tell us what we can and cannot do, whats good for us and whats not - so not really. I have respect where respect is due my friend, not because someone else thinks I should for something they respect.

What I meant is that the Holy Spirit is within the Power of Creation itself.

So yes, the Holy Spirit is also within the Christic Semen.

This is why all the fornicating preachers who claim to have the gift of the Holy Spirit are false.

How could they not be fornicators without the Science of Transmutation?


Anyway, from what I've learned, the Kundalini is the spouse of the Holy Spirit.

The Kundalini is Aima/Shakti/Shekinah, and the Holy Spirit is Abba/Shiva.

The synthesis of the two(Abba/Aima) is Binah, also known as Jehovah-Elohim.


So the Holy Spirit only descends as the Shekinah rises.

And Shekinah only rises according to the merits of the Heart, or the Atom Nous, related to the Superior Emotional Center and to Chokmah(and not the inferior emotions of the lunar astral body); and only when we are in Chastity.


Also, Pranayama only raises sparks of Shekinah, through the Od and Ob canals that figure-eight around the Spinal Column.

Though bachelors should practice Pranayama so that the sexual energy doesn't sit and congest in the sexual center.











The Kundalini/Shekinah itself, only rises through the Middle Channel of the Spine with the co-operation of Woman and Man in the sexual act(without reaching orgasm), and according to the merits of the Heart.


So no, the "I", "me", or "myself" does not control the Holy Spirit.

Christ through the Atom Nous in the left ventrical of the Heart does!








Lesson 5: The Sixth Commandment


"Neither shall you commit Fornication."


Sixth Sephirah: Tiphereth (Beauty)

The Virtue of Tiphereth is Devotion to God’s Work


Abraham, Ia-Sac, Ia-Cab, Io-Sep, were always worshippers of the Sacred Cow, ‘IO’, or of the Egyptian Goddess Isis; yet Moses already, or better said, Ezra, (the reformer, who altered the teachings of Moses) demanded the sacrifice of the Cow and the Calf. Thus, let the blood fall upon everyone’s head, especially their children. - from The Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology by Samael Aun Weor


JOHN 4: 6-26 = Jacob's well:

Therefore, Jesus (the Atom Nous) being drained with his journey, sat thus on the well (of the sexual Waters of Yesod): and it was about the sixth hour (Thou shalt not Fornicate).

Shiluhud,
We're not talking about being Slaves to Blair/Bush or any other political machine/robot. Were speaking of mastering all things of self. Yes God is my master and I submit willingly and am happy to do so since submitting to God brings more benefits and freedom then rebelling against God can ever bring.

This has nothing to do with parents, presidents, prime ministers, corporate bosses, wives, etc.

We're speaking of controlling all the aspects of the self. Masterbation, speech, thoughts, actions, emotions, sex, and everything else you can lump into this category.

By reading the Bible, we recieve invisible/metaphysical/spiritual extra strength to begin to tackle all these beasts and put them into submission. By doing so, God draws near to us and helps us in ways that your imagination can't even fathom. Again this is advanced Christianity and whether you believe it or not, there are many Christians in this world that are in a state of complete control over all apsects of themsevles. It's a life-long vigil process/project. This is why Jesus Christ said to a certain degree that the true path is narrow and only few walk it, while the path to destruction is broad!!!!

I will say that even you Shiluhud are called to Holiness by the Lord. You are also called to walk in Holiness and it is the greatest experiences ever!!!!!!! All of these processes will eventually lead to Ego-Death, the Baptism of The Holy Spirit, and Enlightenment!!!! How great is that???? I would not trade these things for all the money, women, power, and technology in the Universe for these things. Nothing can even come close.

______
Greetings Tamahu,
Yes I agree with you that the Kundalini is an ascending movement, while the Holy Spirit baptism is a descending movement. While I have recieved the enlightenment of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I have only since then had hints of the Kundalini stirring, moving, vibrating.

However, some gnostics and other religions claim that kundalini is the exact same thing as the Holy Spirit baptism. This is not so because the Holy Spirit had not been givin out to the masses until the arrival of Jesus, while the kundalini was written about prior to that. Also there are a number of Christians who have had both the Holy Spirit and Kundalini and all describe the same differences of the two.

Are they related? I feel they are, because upon recieving the Holy Spirit baptism, that is when the kundalini area started to become active and continues to do so.

Praise the Lord !!!!!!!!!!!!!
