Greg Mason: The bible says love your neighbor AS YOURSELF.....I love myself EVERY MORNING So MASTURBATION IS GOOOOOOOOD!....Thank You Jesus!
Aaron Truth: Now I see why the media hated him.. He does not promote consumerism and supports lawful disobedience. GOOD JOB!! Mark.
Tu Bailey: Here's a suggestion: If anyone is Needing wisdom( answers to a perplexing problem), they should ask God. He will tell EACH BELIEVER what his will is for them.
Some say the big "M" is sinful and some say it isn't depending on the situation.
Present your request to the Lord.
Receive His Answer for you. There will be no peace until you ask the one who made you.
If you do not adhere to Christian principles, then why are you reading this? Do whatever you have always done. Believers have a higher calling, and since we want to lift Him up, we need to ask Him.
Solidus Phoenix: If you keep on doing tons of good deeds while avoiding sins, you will need much less sleep, eat a lot less yet have immense energy, be a lot more courageous and resilient, you will feel great! Your spiritual energy will be so high that you will attract great friends and wealth without much effort. Strangers will smile at you for no reason, small children will come to you in a trusting way, animals will approach you. Purify your soul, for you shall feel love everlasting.
Solidus Phoenix: Avoiding sins, doing many good deeds like helping others and giving charity will AWAKEN a human being SPIRITUALLY, you won't stand to see things like nudity or hear bad music anymore. And your brain will feel new, wonderful things. Even your food and music taste will change. You will meet new like-minded people. And your words will have much more impact than usual. You will attract good people easily. Your face will be brighter than usual. You will become much smarter.
EM “BE ME” T: I need to say something. Especially to singles. Masturbation , vibrators, all that is sex. You are not suppose to be engaging in sex when single. So its a sin. Masturbating is a selfish act. You open yourself up to spirits and if you dont stop you open yourself up further to spirits (evil) that will inhabit you, have their way and you will need great deliverance to be set free. I know what I am talking about. When you want to stop you cant because its not you anymore, its demons. I like pastor Driscoll. But he is in error when he says masturbation is not a sin. Sex in its self is great when married between a man and a woman, two people. When it's done alone you're opening yourself up to evil spirits. But the great thing about it, God is a deliverer. There is deliverance and freedom for you. We need to walk in truth . I would want someone to be honest with me. We have enough to contend with, we dont need to be fighting demons.
rmbaker100: I find it interesting that on so many Sites I read, people only want to reply with their narrow thoughts and try to prove how much smarter they are then person who's Post they are reading or listening to. Try to listen to what Mark is saying, masturbating is sin because he's expressing the point you can't separate it from lust. For those of you that are Puritans get over the marriage restrictions you live under and read Song of Salomon. Try listening to what the other is saying before you are an agent of Satan and his condemnation squad.
EXALTEDDIRT: Are you Loving enough to enter Paradise? Have you always loved and obeyed God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength? Have you always Loved your neighbor and enemies selflessly, thinking nothing of yourself? Have you always put God and others before yourself in every thought, word, and deed? Do you deny yourself and renounce everything that you are in order to esteem God above everyone & everything? Would you be willing to sacrifice your life that God may have all the glory even if you still were rejected and abandoned at the end? If this is not your heart; then you have not enough Love to be accepted into Heaven; "He that Loves not (selflessly) knows not God for God IS (sacrificial and selfless) Love"
EXALTEDDIRT: Are you Good enough to go to paradise and escape judgment? How many lies have you told in your life? Ever stolen? ever looked with lust? Ever used God's name in vain? If you have done those things then God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous adulterer at heart and you must face God on judgment day; Revelation 21v8 says; "All Liars will have their part in the lake of fire" the bible declares that "No thief, adulterer, or blasphemer will enter" The guilty will perish eternally in torments in Hell. That is not God's will. You broke God's laws but Jesus paid your fine! Repent, turn from sin, and trust alone in Jesus Christ to save you from the wrath that is to come....
Profitable Traveling: What do you do if you are not successful at finding a marriage partner, getting a date or you are sort a failure with the opposite sex? Even after accepting Jesus and praying deeply for a partner for this loneliness and emptiness to end. Even getting involved in some social avenues, and trying to overcome the shyness and awkwardness, yet....nothing ever happens? You are told by most your Christian associates that maybe God wants you to be single so you can be a better witness, but that only builds more on emptiness and loneliness that God wants you to live a celibate life, but it makes you very unhappy, and starts to distance you from God if that is what He wants for me. I am not a young man anymore, but have had this major problem all my life that I have lived a majority of life alone, without dates and so I began to fall into illicit affairs when I was younger. I don't do that anymore. It only deteriated my soul. I have been in many counseling sessions, and I still do not succeed to overcome this problem. And I don't believe I am alone on this issue. Women seem to find me not very appealing, even though I am not a bad looking person, but no one has ever miraculously come into my life to change the issue. I am in my mid sixties now and still alone without a partner, and without much of a chance for a partner (and I mean marriage, male & female partner). So, What is your comment on a average, guy who just seems to have a problem communicating with the opposite sex, lives alone....and doesn't even seem to have the ability attract the opposite sex in the first place?
Donnie Raveling: Excellent message
gregory J: masturbation saves my marriage
TheWordOfGodInTRUTH REPENT: Masturbation is wrong Gal: .5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. The key word here is SUCH LIKE masturbation is such like to the sexual sins in the above text. .. I got saved and I stopped. God took it from me. The flesh has had a sexual last and that is part of it. .. people in porn does it, why should a Christian?
