The Lord Jesus Christ taught us about lust here is the verses:
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. And if your right hand causes you to
sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell. If your right eye
causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.
Here Christ says you shouldn't look upon a woman with lust because you are committing adultery with her in your heart. It's better to maim yourself
rather than enter Hell! He used that analogy to make a point about how serious of an offense it really is.
The Bible has a lot to say about lust
“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman." -Job 31:1
"Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes." -Proverbs 6:25
Do not lust! Masturbation is lusting after women who is not your wife! "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you,
whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." -1 Corinthians 6:19-20. You
are not your body but it's a temple of the Holy Spirit. You are polluting and defiling your body when you masturbate.
1 Corinthians 6:13b-15 “The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By His power God raised the Lord
from the dead, and He will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ Himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and
unite them with a prostitute? Never!”
Wipe the pornography off your computer and shred and printed materials and turn to Christ he can free you from self abuse. Pray to Christ daily day
and night when Satan seeks to tempt you to abuse yourself in that manner.
"Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." -James 4:7 Satan hates the name of Christ, call on Christ to help
you when you are weak and Satan will leave your presence. Sing hymns and or recite scripture verses when the Father of Lies tries to get you to
You can overcome sexual immorality! Don't be a slave to that sin!
