Just curious. I can't recall masturbation ever coming up in the Bible.
I have heard fornication, abominations, homosexuality, sexually immoral etc... but what is that?
Now, I aint looking for a fight about homosexuality because frankly I don't care if someone is gay or not.
I figure being sexually immoral is to be a pedophile, rapist, and well I seen some things that I wish I had never seen before and for why someone would show me such things as a joke, well... it's not funny. MY EYES MY EYES! LOL
Anyways, I was talking to my brother about masturbation and religion. Don't really know how it came up cause we were drinking but anyways, I said I think it is okay.
I mean, we're human and well we got urges and feelings and stuff and I think that when a person tries to repress those natural feelings, after a while (which is my shallow understanding I suppose) but after a while if all that energy is stored up and it doesn't get released then you end up with pedophiles, rapist, sexual abominations, and just aggravated men and women who will for the sole purpose of "naturally" relieving their sexual tensions, get involved in relationships that are based on sex. And let's be real, for the most part there is always one of the two who "thought" the relationship was based on love, when that sort of lovin' makes you feel good but not the person her/himself.
And while I personally feel that the biblical description of homosexuality isn't in itself a sin to be in love with another of the same gender but because some part aren't supposed go in other parts. I mean you don't get babies from stuffing a crapper. (sorry if that offends anyone this is just based on "common sense")
Also I figure abominations are like (God help clear my mind!) woman putting octopuses in their vagina and things like boinking chickens and horses and all that stuff that I think is absolutely disgusting and I am not ashamed in anyway to say that that kind of sexual stuff is really friggin disgusting and what I call an abomination.
So I figure God gave you two hands, a dingaling or cookie... so it is either repress it until you become agro and end up doing something you might regret that will have an effect on someone other than yourself, or get it over with and get back to thinking straight.
So is masturbation a sin, or is not masturbating a gateway to immoral behavior?
There are a number of confirmed health hazards that could arise as a result of masturbation. From them: the dispersion of the mind, as it will attempt to recall sexual interactions prior to masturbating, and this leads in the long-term a weakening of the memory. Also, (for the male), the hand is relatively rougher than the vagina, masturbating leads, in the long term, to a weakening of the sensitivity of the male penis. This is a disease widespread amongst Westerners – may Allah protect us from it – where men leave their women, as he is unable to ejaculate during sex with her, and is sufficed with ejaculating by his hand (masturbating), with the aid of pornography. As for the woman, then it leads to an enlargement of the external sexual organs (clitoris and outer labia), and thinness of the vagina, which results in a lack of sexual enjoyment when penetrated by her husband. This is why oral sex is very common amongst Westerners. Likewise, the ease of masturbating compared to sex (as it doesn’t require another person), encourages continuation of doing it, until one becomes addicted. It results in a sense of lowness and sinning. It is also against morals and a scar on manliness
Marriage: The Solution To Get Rid of Masturbation: as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah: They used as evidence, the hadeeth collected by al-Bukhaari [5/1950] and Muslim [2/1018] in their Saheehay from ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ood, radiallahu ‘anh, who said: “We were with some youth not finding anything, so the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam said: ‘O assembly of youth. Whoever from you is able to get married, then let him do so, for it lowers the gaze and protects the privates. And whoever is unable, then it is (on him) to fast, for it is a protection (from committing the haraam).’”
So, masturbation is a sin.
Qur'an Ch 24-Light, V 33
“And let those who find not the financial means for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah enriches them of His Bounty” [24:33].
Masturbating...most definitely NOT a sin. I'd go crazy if I couldn't have that kind of guiltless freedom. It would lead to bad things...the frustration would likely result in yelling at my kids more. So thank heavens for the pulsating shower head. I truly feel sorry for anyone who can't enjoy a little self-stimulation now and again. There are too many genuinely bad/evil things that happen in this world or ours. A little masturbation isn't one of them.
Not by any reasonable definition, however I'm sure we'll be hearing from the bible thumpers soon. I seem to recall a verse that referred to the "spilling of seed on the ground" (I guess they didn't have kleenex back then) as a biblical justification for condemning it. There is an outrageously funny bit about this in the Monty Python movie,"The Meaning of Life" The lyrics were something like:
Every sperm is sacred Every sperm is Great If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate!
You know, I've been meaning to tell you this...that actually is not my cat. I just found that picture on the web with the "Sup" and I thought it was funny. But now I am really going to post a picture of my cat, because she is beautiful and awesome, and, though none of you really deserves to see her, I will let you anyways.
One evening while going through our routine of sexual activities banned in the state of Georgia, my wife started laughing hysterically. I wondered how I could possibly be tickling her, but figured she would steer me by my ears if an adjustment was necessary. The mood was definitely broken, so I came up for air and asked her what was so damn funny. Apparently one of our cats was watching me very intently and cocking his head sideways in a quizical manner. She tried to stifle her laughter for as long as possible, but the cat's expressions were too much for her.
Ummm....I would say the answer to the original question would be a "no". But I also believe you should interpret what the Bible has to say for yourself instead of relying on what other's believe. So don't quote me as the "God's honest truth".
And Ron--even through Maddie's posts about mutilation, I'm still laughing my butt off at your experience here!!!! Are you sure your last name isn't really "White"? (You know the comedian--it's NOT a racial thing!!)
Well, I don't really know, but if orgasmic contractions exercise certain muscles, it may be useful in preventing urinary leakage which sometimes happens-- I have heard -- to older women. Moderate exercise of everything from brain to toenails is healthful.
That is true. The kegel muscle exercises can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles that hold up the bladder. Specifically the pubococcygeus and oliococcygeus muscles I have an anatomy test tomorrow, can ya tell?
Right? I was just quoting this to my sister today and we wondered if anyone's tried to contact her for an interview. Her life would make an amazing documentary. Maybe raise money to stop genital mutilation.
Maddie I'm guessing it was the parent's decision? FGM still occurs in other cultures, both legally and illegally. It is a violation of human rights and is disgusting. But for cultures that have practiced it for decades, it is difficult to argue with.
Yeah like a tv documentary on discovery health? Good idea. It would be interesting. I'm sure she got pleasure out of having sex, just not the same. And can you miss something you never remember having? Probably.
Thanks Brenda! I like you too. I think that we should all seek out who we are, it is painful, and I always know that as I try to grow every bit of growth hurts, so I have learnt to use the pain to find my way. It may seem difficult, but it makes life easier and more loving in the long run.These days I sit back and adore my grandchildren and learn from them.
Ok, as I understand it if you're under 21 its ok as long as you lock the door. I'm sure parents and siblings don't wanna know. As a parent, if your young one is stressing because they can't figure it out, you may have to talk about it if odd things keep disappearing from the pantry. Over 21 but under 40 its not a sin as long as you do it on the even days and alone. If you're married and it becomes necessary then its only a sin for your partner for insensitive, uncaring, selfish and just plain bad behavior. So, if you are forced by your mate to indulge yourself then do it where they can hear you but don't let them watch! If you're over 40 but under 60 its only a sin if you let other people know you're doing it and brag about it. If you're over 60 and and you're still inclined to diddle its not a sin and I bow to your greatness. Peace.
If you have to ask someone for an opinion then I believe deep down you already know what the answer is. if you were not convicted by masturbation then you wouldn't be inquiring from someone else if it's o.k.
You have eyes to see with but can't see, you have ears to hear with but you can't hear what the spirit is saying because you have closed your heart to truth. Someone once said; "What is truth?" When truth was staring him in the face. That's how the heart of man has grown---"If it feels good,do it" After all--God understands, huh? God have mercy on this heartless and sinful nation.
Gotcha, yeah I thought that was what you meant. He had to work a long day yesterday. We only get to see each other 3 days a week (give or take a day). So we usually make the most of that time Tomorrow night is date night! That's my favorite day of the week
Dude Usman you got to chill out. Are you married? And if you are single... dating isn't allowed in your culture..... then what do you do? Holy Cow I haven't read such BS before. Can't you stop quoting some centuries old book... Dude, wake up and think for yourself in present times.
According to Christian it is SINFUL?Masturbation is a sin because a person consents in their own heart to take sexual gratification from impure thoughts. It is sinful to indulge in the sexual pleasure that is derived from the satisfaction of using one's imagination to FIXATE upon obscene images, or...
Quite a powerful story:http://www.danoah.com/2012/04/a-teens-b … e-gay.htmlI think this explains why so many of us are bothered by the "hate the sin, not the sinner" nonsense that many right-wing Christians trot out. Homosexuality is not an act, it's a fundamental orientation, and...
Though I know that being homosexual is not accepted still in today's society why is it individual feel it is there moral and civic duty to cast hatred animosity towards those who live within that population? Does not the bible say Love one another as Christ would love you and did not Christ even...
Do you think homosexuality is a sin?My take is either you believe God's Word or not! If He calls it a sin, then it is a sin. Let me be clear, what I'm referring to is the Sin of homosexuality. That's what sin is isn't it. In general a sin is an ACT that violates a moral rule. So why is it that sooo...
The bible plainly shows that homosexuality is wrong. The Scriptures are thus consistent, not just showing the bad effects of this practice, but also properly condemning what produces those ill effects.So we read at 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10: “Make no mistake: no fornicator or idolater, none who are...
Do you believe a person can be a Christian and continue willingly in a homosexual lifestyle?Culture and some churches are embracing the concept of "gay-Christian." The Bible discusses homosexuality, yet some interpret it differently than others. I write about it regularly as a...
