|What Does The Bible Say About Masturbation? by Nobody: 7:57pm On Apr 11|
Good Evening Nairalanders
I have a young friend of mine who has been masturbating since he was eleven years old and he is going to be twenty this year. His parents are divorced and he does not live with any of them.
We where talking today and he confided in me that he's been masturbating since he was eleven and that he has been struggling to stop out of guilt but he eventually stopped trying ever since he saw that it was almost impossible so he continued.
But I tried to encourage him to stop because I have been there. I started when I was in the university and struggled till 2018 when I eventually got more control. I realized that while I was still a chronic masturbator that I had almost no drive to succeed in anything which affected me a lot because I kept to my self, had no friends, felt guilty, weak and empty but my friend argued that he won't even bother trying because it was just impossible and doctors say it's healthy to masturbate, I argued that those doctors were lying and that it is not Scripturally okay but he also argued that were in the bible is it written? and I couldn't argue more cause I also relapse at times.
So please, that is why I have come here to ask for the advice on how to encourage him to keep on fighting against addiction and what bible verses can I quote for him?

So what are you doing now as a solution, fornicating?
And was that the 'cure' you suggested to him?
The Bible condemns uncleanness and impurities, which masturbation is, and other sexual sins also fall under.

We're all struggling bro. I don't judge or condemn anyone. Just encourage and advise.
A man's body is literally a 24/7 running high-powered living sex machine. All that energy will be released one way or the other, voluntarily or involuntarily.

The only way to overcome sexual sins and other sins is to be surrendered to Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:23
The ONLY WAY to overcome masturbation and other sins is spiritual maturity.
You have to keep growing spiritually by feeding on God's Word, fasting and praying in tongues.
We all consists of spirit, soul and body. The body is sinful and craves sin. The spirit is holy and is in the semblance of God. The soul is the emotional part of man.
The more you feed the spirit with God's Word, the weaker the sinful body becomes with all its sinful cravings.

remember the passage where Christ taught about
the issue of lust ?
even when there is no physical actions between
the male and female.
Christ pointed out clearly that lusting (to have
carnal knowledge with someone) is a sin. and this
sin triggers adultery, fornication, rape and sexual
How Masturbation is a Sin ?
in the act of masturbation there is only one
stimulus needed which lust.
when a man is stroking himself he can not
ejaculate without having a picture on his mind of
who his fucking. lust triggers masturbation. you
can never masturbate without being heavily
influenced by lust.
it's our human nature for instant gratification we
cut corners rather than follow the Godly way
don't mix masturbation with wet dreams.
the former is a deliberate act while the latter is an
unconscious activity which sometimes is caused
by a build of your sexual hormones that want to be
released just like women in their periods.
they are cases that are natural
lusting is abnormal (fallen nature)
masturbation as a product of it is there for a sin
when one masturbates he is lusting
so to you is it sin or not ?
sin starts with a motive not the act itself

Masturbation and Pornography is one of the Easiest and favorite tool of the enemy(Adversary) of Mankind.
Masturbation requested by a doctor for test and other medical checkup is safe, why because its purpose is for Health, but Masturbation for Pleasure is a terrible and dangerous act which continually leads to spiritual death. In the physical realm, its all fun, but in the spiritual realm, The soul is draining out(eaten up).
Masturbation is a stronghold, no matter how many pastors pray for an addict of masturbation, it doesn't change anything until firstly the person is "Tired of Masturbating, disgusts the person, the person hates the act " from within. In simpler terms, masturbation is like a slave master, and its victim a slave. It calls on the slave anytime it wants thereby leaving the slave soul eaten up and spiritually dying. When masturbating, one invites demons to make the thoughts of the mind to become reality. Mankind was not created by The Most High to be slaves to anything, NEVER!.
Hate it, know its a slave master, know you have Authority over it and start working against it.
There are two pathways(entrance) to the mind of a man, The eyes(what You see) and the ears(what You listen to), if sexual perversion (immorality) continually enters the mind through it, The slave master can't be defeated, so what is the answer, Shut it!!! , if its musical video, shut it, if its a friend on social media that posts pictures of such, block the person, if its inappropriate ads from Google(new tactics) block the ad, if its Pornography, I already told you to hate it, so you wouldn't want to visit a pornsite. If you have friends that are always about Sex, unfriend them all, You are responsible for your soul, and your soul is priceless. Psalm 101:3 I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not cling to me.
Study the word, The Bible is the greatest weapon of Mankind, though many people think its a religious book, a fairytale, a novel, a literature, and tho many wrongly use it, but I tell you, The words of The Bible is the greatest weapon of Mankind, That's why it is greatly avoided (it is a tactic) if you continually seek and search in the Bible, You can't be a slave to anything on Earth, I didn't say going to Church, or listening to pastor, You search and seek yourself, It is your mind, It is your soul, and you are responsible, not religion.
N.B - No matter how many times you fall, never, EVER give up, fight till death.
All Praises to The Most High.

Why must we bring dogmas into everything, WHY?
Dumb as fvck, blaming masturbation as reason for failure, I give up on you, what a myopic individual!
My favorite quote, Once an addict, always an addict! People don't just say they are free from addictions, hello, ever heard of the word, RELAPSE?
OP I know you still self-service, so let's cut to the chase. Tell me, how did you manage to stop yours? Yeye dey smell

My brother, we are all humans. My advice for you is never to give up, and sooner than you ever imagined it would be a thing of the past. It is the Holy Spirit that can and shall permanently help you break the jinx if you sincerely pray that HE should take over your life. Many are afraid or think relating with HIM is strange or difficult like some portrayed. Even as a masturbator or sinner just be sincere, that's all. HE created us and understands our weakness. That sincerity is what HE looks for in the hearts of men. Sinful flesh that pushes all of us pushed David to murdered another man and stole his wife. Yet his heart was sincere enough to weep and confess and ask his CREATOR for forgiveness and strength never to do such again(this is the help that we should sincerely desire from HIM as we pray). Satan makes us to think it would be a waste of time, and use guilt to chase us away from Holy Spirit. Don't fall for his lies. HOLY SPIRIT put a part of HIMSELF in you when Adam was cretaed, HE shall always value and treasure us no matter how dirty we become. You don't need to learn any special way to pray. Just relentlessly be saying "Blood of JESUS wash off my sins, Holy Spirit, the SPIRIT of YAHWEH my Creator and Owner, please help me, take permanent Control of my thoughts. And sooner than you imagine, you see that you shall hate masturbation and every other thing that HE hates with perfect hatred. You will only beginning to love what HE loves. . All that want to break this addiction should carefully read this:
HalleluYAH to JESUS! Our risen King shall raise us to eternal life too in JESUS Name.
Romans 8:11 "And if the Spirit of HIM who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, HE that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life to your mortal bodies and make you live forever." Have you ever seen a useful Body without a Spirit?! The importance of the Holy Spirt was erroneously grossly downplayed by the enemy that tried to manipulate the Body of Christ. By doing this, he made Christians to become less vigilant and unwatchful, thereby making them vunerable.
The key to live forever is not only to accept JESUS Christ as our LORD and Saviour but to also accept the in-filling of the comforting HOLY SPIRIT that HE sent to us from above.
Read Matthew 25:1-13. It states clealy that the 10 were not just common human beings but pure virgins (born again Christians) waiting for their LORD's return. What do you think is the Oil that the other 5 that missed the Rapture did not have in their lamps? It was the Holy Spirit.
It is too dangerous not to hunger for Holy Spirit and be filled by HIM in this modern evil World. HE Is our comforter, shield and protection. We read here last few weeks of how a healthy bubbling handsome Groom in Jos died peacefully in his sleep right on morning of his Wedding day before he could marry, could that be a mere coincidence. An accademically sound first-class product friend of mine was used by his own boss who told him to bring the egg in the rest room of his office for him, he innocently did. The boss must have noticed his nonchnalence to the spirituality of life. My friend died peacefully in the the new house he just completed. He's a Christian, but deceived by his superintelligence and subconcious pride that made him saw himself as self-sufficient. Very rarely prayed, fast or go to Church. His great uncommon Glory was harvested just like that.
HOLY SPIRIT is not fiction, HE is very real! Realer than demons that satanists, luciferinas, herbalists, witches and wizards rely on to see, while We walk by Faith which is far superior and powerful than seeing. Angels, demons, other spirits etc are shocked, amazed and wowed by highest Man's ability; Christians' actions of Faith without seeing, this is the essence of Man. In John 30:29, JESUS said we are blessed above even spirit beings because we did not wait to see before believing our CREATOR, that's is the Key to Man's superiority above demons.
Jeremiah 29:13 "You will seek ME and find ME when you seek for ME with ALL your heart." That is the unbendable unnegotiable Condition for knowing the Holy Spirit, it must be with the full surrender of your body, soul, and spirt to Holiness before HE can reveal HIMSELF to you. Life, what is life? You are still alive and useful today because you still have the spirit of life in you. The current spirit of life you have is the small part of HIM that HE breath into Adam. Why not reconnect your spirit back to it's SOURCE; HOLY SPIRIT. So that HE would feed the spirit of life in you to grow into full stature in Spirit so that you can live forever. HOLY SPIRIT is the one that feeds and add to your Spirit till it grow to full Stature of Christ that can never be conquered by death anymore. HOLY SPIRIT is LIFE!
YAHWEH ALMIGHTY is raising a mighty End Time Army, please enroll before it becomes too late. You can not wish it away, there is no civilian true Christian, we are all Soldiers in this temporary life on Earth. We rather live discomfortably like this now, refusing to bow to the god of this sinful World. So that we enter into eternal rest, comfort, joy and eternal enjoyment that truly await us. We are not afraid of death during the course of doing the Will of the CREATOR of Heaven and Earth because we know that the SOURCE of all lives HIMSELF is our eternal Owner and Controller, HE has vowed to make us live forever and ever. The Sun has not fallen from where HE placed it, so HIS Promise can never fail.
My fellow Christians, I want us to know that Holy Spirit is not the most important thing to Christians, Holy Spirit is Everything; our all in all! HE is Everything! HE is not fiction, HE is very real! Realer than demons that witches and wizards rely on. To please HIM is the singular most important reason why we are alive. Without HIM, we are useless and wasted. Luke 4:1, Acts 10:38 "How YAHWEH anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit" So that HE was then able to achieve great and mighty things, healing all sicknesses and delivering those being oppressed by Satan and demons. Even JESUS had to be filled with HIM to fulfill His Purpose of coming to the Earth. Being holy and making yourself condusive for HIM to dwell in is not negotiable!
This testimony above happened years ago when I couldn't distinctively differentiate between the voice of my heart and the Voice of the Holy Spirit. You can imagine what would have happened to me if I concluded in my heart that I MUST be 100% sure it was God that told me to swiftly remove my hand and allow the big bundles of money that the man was paying me to fall to the ground as he handed it to me. I acted as if it was a mistake and said "sorry sir" as I packed the money from ground into my bag. Satan can not create any Glory (he is not YAHWEH GOD that creates something from nothing), he hijacks that of others for his children. I never knew they were programing that I should never see my next Birthday alive, but I stupidly obeyed the Voice in my heart that said "Remove your hand and let the money fall" This is the most difficult aspect for most Christians, because devil holds them back by deceiving them to think it is just their heart speaking.
Satan has used subconscious inner pride to permanently retardd the Spiritual Growth of many that would have become Christian spiritual Giants in this World. HOLY SPIRIT has told many Christians that are passing by a blind, sick or cripple person, "Lay hand and pray for him/her", but fear of the shame, disgrace and mockery of us that would happen if we obey and the miracle dies not happen has incapacitated many. Until you die to your flesh and pride, until you KNOW that your life is not about you but about your CREATOR, until you don't care anymore whether the miracle happen or not, until your desire to see Men free from bondage of Satan/sickness overrides your ego being hurt, it is only then that you shall be transformed to a mighty Miracle Worker for the Kingdom of GOD ALMIGHTY. The schools fees of the School of the Spirit is childlike obedience. Permanent death to pride and flesh is the KEY! A dead man does not give a damn whether people are laughing at him or not, we must relentlessly Cry to HOLY SPIRIT to permanently kill our pride and flesh so HE can become fully alive in us, to make us useful for HIS Kingdom and freely used by HIM to impact Humanity for good.
To grow Spiritually and become Powerful, stop being stagnated by your effort to be 100% sure of if it is your heart speaking or God, stop focusing on knowing the difference between the voice of your heart and the Voice of God before you obey the Voice of Holy Spirit. Babies don't think they must wait to be able to speak fluently before they start speaking, they speak all the same not caring wether you laugh at their babbling or not. Matthew 18:3, Christ say we can not know God unless be become like babies instead of subconciously deceiving/stagnating ourself with our intelligence.
Another lie that Satan uses to deceive and stagnate most Christians' spiritual growth is by telling them that they are not gifted spiritually by God. The CREATOR of Heaven and Earth deposited a part of HIMSELF into Adam, and that is the life currently in you too. The spirit anything, controls the physical anything. You are able too move your hand because the spirit of life in you does. Not feeling body of man, not logical thinking soul of man, it is that spirit of life in man that has ability to communicates with the CREATOR of Heaven and earth because HE is SPIRIT. Every living human being is spiritually gifted already, develop it as a child gradually develops speech. As a baby, don't be enslaved/incapacitated/immobilized by thinking you must know the difference between Voice of God and voice of your heart before obeying to do the spiritually good. Let Philippians 4:8 be your guide on this. Provided what the Voice said is not against God or humanity, do it! It is the only Way to know GOD better, if you refuse to take steps and obey, you will never grow spiritually. This is why many remain dependent baby Christians till they die. You shall fulfill the Glorious Purpose for which ALMIGHTY GOD put you on Earth in JESUS' Name!

I guess people need to understand that this generation is totally different from the Bible's stone age...
You can't use the Bible to compare our present way of life in diz modern day...
Masturbation has been saving a lot of guys from a lot of things.
Scientifically, it has its pros and cons but the latter is minimal ...
Stop comparing everything in this life to a book written in (only God knows when)
If you are single and the urge for sex pops in...kindly soapy it and have rest of mind instead of raping teenagers and Bleep*ING oloshi where u can contract diseases or spiritual shits.
If you are married, let's assume you travel on a biz trip or your wife travelled, if the urge for sex pops in....kindly masturbate....it will save u from Bleep*ING your house maid, your wife's sister or side chicks...
Lastly, when you get married, you will stop it and you will even forget anything about masturbation ...
Am I making sense

You see this issue of lust,only God can save we men cos ladies of this generation has made it incredibly difficult for us when we see them clothed nakedly on the street, ass and boobs everywhere... How do you walk on the street seeing naked ladies everywhere and not fall into lust? Except we wan lie, 90% of guys if not more fall into lust on seeing a girl walking on the street, we start evaluating her bress and ass especially the naked ones we start seeing different sizes and colours of water melon which in the end one way or the other leads us to masturbation or fornication...
