Is masturbation a sin?. And what about marrying? is it a solution for burning?, as the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 7:9 “ But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn”.
ANSWER: The Lord Jesus said that he that looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her in his heart. The sentence shows that sin does not originate from the body but originates from the heart, so sex also originates from the heart, then from the heart and then from the outside, so whatever is done in the body is the result of something already done in the soul, so fornication, masturbation, watching pornography it is the result of immorality that has already taken place in one’s heart.
Therefore MASTURBATION IS A SIN. And the only solution to get rid of that sin is to truly give your life to the Lord Jesus, and resolve to start a new life in Christ, and decide to stop practicing it no more.
, .. they wait for miracles to come and find themselves abandoned and still in their hearts are not turning away from sexual immorality … I want to tell you my God-searching brother, There is no prayer to get rid of that stuff in any person, in order for those things to go away, it is you to decide first to make a decision to stop those things and then the Lord will add you the power to overcome those things. Remember, the Bible says that all prostitutes are part of a lake of fire. And also about marrying the Bible is made clear in the book of
1 Corinthians 7: 1 “Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”
If you read carefully, verse 2 says “in order to avoid fornication” let every man should have his own wife … not because of avoiding lusts… but because of fornication… and fornication means having sex outside of marriage or before marriage, which means that, having a wife or husband does not prevent a person from developing a desire/lust … if one’s behavior is to desire/lust! That behavior will not stop even If he/she gets married … maybe he/she will avoid fornication only after he gets married because he will have his own wife/husband inside! But the desire to lust does not change.
So the only solution to stop the lust for the unmarried or married individual, is to surrender your life to Christ, and intend to give up sin,/ to leave sin by deeds..(remember God cannot help a person who has not purposely given up the wrong thing).
But if one intends to give up the desire to lust,and all the promiscuity, immorality, pornography, insults, words of worthless jokes, then the Holy Spirit comes upon him/her and helps him/her and thus finds that things never bother her again in his/her life..
