Are you sure about that?

Right now there are 7.1 billion people on the Earth and all of them could fit side by side within the city limits of Jacksonville, Florida.



Omg, so wait...hell wouldn't have to be *that* big to fit us all?! That is a total convincer.......

Would you really want to know the answer if someone told you the correct one?

Would you go to hell? If you dont believe in GOD, then quite possibly so. If you do, then you have him on your side. What father would destroy his children for doing wrong if they loved him in return? Its those that donot count themselves loyal, or relative to GOD. I guess in the same manner of... You dont believe in me.. I dont believe in you. I cant give you the perfect answer because I dont know. Murder is a sin, but you refrain well enough from commiting those acts... Some dont.

There are alot of valid reasons that such things were held as law. Everything has a purpose. Wether or not you choose to use that purpose for what it was meant, is intirely up to you. Believe it or not, not all virgins are so because it's they just couldnt get any... Some are actually fighting those urdges to do by what they believe is right and for a proper purpose. No one has the right to take that away from them.


If one is serious about such topics, then ask. If it's for idiocy and mockery, what good is it but childishness?

I really can not see it being a sin...

The simple fact is that private solo masturbation is permitted. And if we reject it as a sin, when it is not, we go against the will of God, Who gave it to us as a gift for our benefit and enjoyment.

"For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be
rejected if it is received with thanksgiving;" (1 Timothy 4:4 RSV)

The way i look at it, is no one is perfect and masturbating is the worst sin you do. A man needs to get rid of that energy and its important.

Whether it is a sin or not, i think its just a necessary part of being human.

God's creating work ended on day 6. Everything we experience today is a result of the fall. Let me fix your last statement:

"Thanks god,your the best!
"


Thanks satan, you're the best!

I'm sinning almost daily, and given that I also have premarital sex, I'm pretty sure I'll end up in hell. Of course the bible is a fictional work and no one has ever proven the god/devil to exist, so I"m not worried at all. Worst case, all the cool people end up in hell, and I'll meet them. All the boring people will go to heaven.

The only thing that worries me is that the Christian fundamentalists will end up in hell too, and I really don't want them there. Have to ask the devil to put those nutjobs in isolation. Yes, if you're in hell, you probably deserve to suffer a bit...but putting you in the same room as religious fundamentalists is beyond cruel, their nonsense can melt brains in minutes

The Bible is noteworthy only because of the morals it provides which help the individual to live an ethical life. I could care less about the truth of events. Once you can see the Bible, at the very least, for its morals, and agree that maybe yes those morals could create a better human experience, then you got the message, and you are a Christian-in spirit. At least, that's what I think from what I've read of the new testament. I could care less about old covenants of the old testament, especially when they have been rebuked by the God who had instated them in the first place.

I'm sorry but this is a silly topic and one that's been discussed (or variations of it) several times on ATS before.

There is no scientific proof or evidence in the slightest that indicates whether God exists.

As far as I know, it's not mentioned anywhere in the Bible that Masturbation is a sin, the OP has just taken quotes and put a personal interpretation on them.

No disrespect but I genuinely feel sorry for anyone who doesn't masturbate because they believe it's a sin.

Come one guys and girls, get sinning!

Only an absolute idiot would believe that masturbation is a sin. This is the exact reason why i am NOT religious. Ludicrous.

Wrong, doing so as a Jew is.

Shrimp are quite tasty.

But of course you can still use the old testament to explain how the world was created, right? So you get to cherry pick the parts you like, and abandon the parts you don't like...like not being allowed to eat shrimp.

Seems perfectly logical

andy, you're spot on! I actually dread to think of what world we would live in if there was no such thing as masturbation. People would be pent up angry the whole time... People need to do it to release all the energy, and some even use it to help them sleep! It has so many benefits, I couldn't believe for a minute that it is wrong to do.

What does eating shrimp got to do with Christianity?

You guys really tickle the hell out of me. Not only does it seem that each responce gets to an all time childish low as they stack up, but it's very obvious that the reason for ignorance is the simple lack of understanding that what you hate...

There is nothing that says that christians are not alowed to eat shrimp.

Wow, your ignorance to the bible is astounding.

1. Christians do not operate under the old covenant. Judaism does. Christians do not operate under the Mosaic law, Talmudic Judaism does.

2. Neither the creation of the Earth, nor the OT prophesies have anything to do with the Mosaic Law or the old covenant.

3. Christianity operates under the new covenant with God through Christ. Kinda why we are called "Christians".
