This is literally the most ridiculous thing I have ever read.

Here is what I don't like about religious views such as this.

If somebody achieves something, or lives in a "holy" way, then they have to thank god for the help, right?

But when somebody fails or does something "unholy" it is, "the Devil"

For somebody to thank God or Blame the Devil, they take all personal responsibility out of the equation. From that view point it is not hard to see how religions can cause so much suffering in the world, both in the past and the present.

Anyhow, you are suggesting that your God made a mistake.

If God did not want us to jerk off, he/she/it would have made our arms shorter so we could not reach our genitals. Are you saying that god is not perfect and made a mistake?

Why would god play such a sick game with people? Does he/she/it get enjoyment from watching people deny themselves pleasure? Sounds like a sexual sadist to me, certainly not something worth devoting a life to or worshiping.

Sorry for being dense, but is there a point to this thread other than evangelizing? I mean, I am pretty certain noone asked what devout Christians though about masturbation....

So anything to this thread aside from imposing your beliefs into someone else's life?

If she asks you to do something that is a sin it's okay to disobey. Would you commit a crime if your wife asked you? Of course not. You have obey God first, wife second.

After all it doesn't hurt anyone. I think the moral of the story would better be explained as a parallel to healthy living. All things in moderation or as close to moderation as possible. IE; drinking, eating, exercise, jacking off...etc.

As far as lusting? I look at women as art. I love women's bodies. Each one unique and different. I love looking at women, just like some people love looking at paintings. And I have been happily married for 12 years, and I have no intentions of ever having sex with another woman but my wife, and haven't touched another woman sexually since I made a commitment to my wife.

The lesson is to be true to yourself. Live, love and enjoy yourself, but never at the expense of anyone else. Don't be so goddamn uptight!

You can overcome sexual immorality!


Well, I'm flabbergasted that I'm the first to say this but......

wouldn't you rather have your priests and holy figures masturbating instead of RAPING AND MOLESTING CHILDREN?

Until your "holy men" can learn to keep it in their pants instead of the alterboys, I think you should heed some of your own written advice.

Let he who is free of sin cast the first stone.

I'd be aiming for your nutz by the way.

Any religion that teaches you to be ashamed of your body and it's natural functions serves no purpose in the modern REAL world other than to be a mild nuisance and endless supply of comedy

The Roman Catholic Church is the AntiChrist so you can't account for them as being real Christians. They are a Satantic organization.

You pray and read the Bible daily for strength. Lusting is a sin whether you are married or single. It's something you can't give into or you will burn in Hell fire for it!

It's not limited to the Roman Catholic Church, and it's not limited to Christianity.

It is physiologically impossible to not masturbate.

Yes it is. If you don't masturbate you have nocturnal emissions. The body expels out excess sperm naturally without any sexual intervention.

What a joke this post broke no rules at all, if biblethumper A can call all other religions other than his satanic, I can call his god a jerk.

note to mods, in cases like this I'd suggest a more direct "warning" as in telling me exactly what the warning was issued for instead of deleting the post then running and hiding

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. -Matthew 5:28-30

Here Christ says ..... (

Threads on this topic invariably end up in the trash bin.
While it's still here, I'd say to use the Old Testament on this point is totally unacceptable, because men could have as many wives and concubines as they liked. With such an unlimited access to the real thing masturbation was unnecessary. When they wanted more women they simply went and stole them from other tribes, and rape was OK with God, subject to a minor fine, or making the girl marry her rapist.
The whole aim was to breed the Israelites into existence.
Still, ejaculating outside of constant copulation was not a major sin, and the guy was unclean until sundown or subject to a ritual bath.

Under the thought-crime brought by Jesus and St. Paul, "lustful" men could have one wife as a compromise.
They could never divorce this wife (outside of adultery).
Sexuality now moved from a baby making factory to a spiritual distraction for men.
God had changed His mind.
To paraphrase St Augustine, "Dear Lord please make me chaste, just not today".
So modern man has none of the choice and variation of Old Testament men.
This shows how sadistic the Christian God is - men's desires are still the same, but He just changed the rules.

However the laws on adultery only apply to married men, and directly Jesus said absolutely nothing on masturbation. The OP verses are all decontextualized and forced into a certain interpretation.
If Jesus felt that strongly about it, He would have said so clearly.
No matter how cult-like American Christianity is becoming these days, I've yet to see a man who literally blinded himself, or cut his hand off in a literal interpretation of Scripture. So clearly nobody takes it literally in any case.
At least Origen still took it seriously when he castrated himself.
Ironically parts of the Bible were used for masturbatory purposes by the Victorians.
However, nowhere does the bible mention "self-abuse" of "masturbation".
That is in the mind of the beholder.

if you want everyone to live their life directly according to the words in The Bible, we will have parents killing their children for bad behavior, rapists marrying the woman they raped/victimized, people poking out eyes and cutting off limbs, etcetera.

lighten up, Francis. going through life as a fanatical zealot is not what it's all about. you will turn more people away from the Lord than toward the Lord if you persist in spewing verse word for word.

Then let god see me as a sinner 'till end times for my hands have touched and my eyes have seen with lust upon woman and self. Let the rath of god befall upon me and spare the pedophile priest that hath rapred your brothers and sisters. And have god spare the souls of the murderers of heathens of the days of old sent upon the people by Gods right hand, the pope....gods right hand?!?!...well looky what we have here. I guess you do have to perform sexual favor to go up the ladder then.

I agree, why did god make the genitals so easy to reach?
And, why did he put the prostate gland in such a place that only gay men would enjoy it?
It's almost as if he wanted gay men to enjoy it!!
Maybe homosexuality isn't a sin after all!
If you stimulate your prostate gland with a bible, or a cross, would that cancel out the sin?
