This is why this nation is going to Hell. Christ said it would be like the days of Noah when the world would end. I think it's fast approaching. I just hope you find Christ and repent before it's too late.

Best start collecting two of every animal then, because thats all we will need, for them to survive!

On a side note...

Does anyone else think that sex being a religious taboo is mainly due to the texts being written by jealous old men bitter because they couldn't get any?

Just curious

Which Christ Your version of Him? Phelps version of him? The Mormon Version of him? The Christian Scientist version of him? The evangelicals version of him? The greek orthodox version of him?
Which Jesus of the thousands of Jesus's must I choose?

It's only a sin
if your mom catches you.

10 minutes self-abuse in a comfortable armchair....

Those who fashion a helmet made of the foil of tin shall be taken out to the city gate and stoned to death
for they are an abomination unto your lord.

Doesn't God say: enjoy you're life anyway you can somewhere? Even if the words are not in the right place, and the words are everywhere in the book, it stands in it, so you don't commit a sin.

It is even needed that you do it, so you don't get dead sperm and it stays fit/new.

No the bible pretty much frowns on any type of joy or human expression.
You must be thinking of this God.

i hope this is meant as a joke, because offering me salvation from a fictitious book character isn't much help.

its like me saying i hope you find gandalf the white wizard before you die. only gandalf can redeem your soul!

the world is what we make of it, and your sin, is my stock and trade!

• I've had both Christian and Islamic teachers tell me that masturbation should be avoided unless it will keep you from committing fornication or adultery.

• If masturbation or spilling/wasting semen is a sin, then what would be the deal with sleeping nocturnal emissions a.k.a. "wet dreams?" These types of things are beyond our control and occur naturally... things that occur naturally are God's doing... correct? So why is spilling/wasting semen a sin when God gave us the possibility to waste semen in our unconscious sleeping hours?

• Beyond mere Command, Decree, Law, Doctrine, or Dogma... why is masturbation a sin? What are the harmful ramifications of masturbation to one's self and/or society?


I have seen a few threads discussing celibacy and it's spiritual benefit only to be destined to the 404 pile. Is there some conspiracy with celibacy and sexual magic, or do those threads keeping breaching the T&Cs? From my observations of those 404'd threads I didn't see any immaturity or vulgarity to warrant any 404s. Does celibacy increase enlightenment and spiritual power? Could this be the reason for classifying masturbation as a sin?

If I had more time at the moment, I would elaborate more on some of what is taught in the following link:

Sacred-Sex Topics: Masturbation

Although for now, let's understand–in the context of what is within the above link–that the cure for both indulgence and suppression, is Transmutation (Transmutation is achieved through Chaste Sexual Magic and/or Pranayama).

The verse in Genesis isn't about masturbation, it's about not giving a son to a dead brother's wife. if someone could masturbate without thinking of women then it wouldn't be sin. But I can't foresee someone doing the act without lusting in their heart for someone else.

If Noah himself never collected 'two of every animal', then why do you suggest the OP do the same?
