No. The cult doesn't say masturbation is a sin. They believe masturbation is an act that should be avoided if one is doing the will of Jesus. It's a matter of opinion and many have an opinion that masturbation is a sin because most that masturbate are young adults (teens) and older adults that use sexual thoughts when masturbating.<quoted text>
The cult says its a sin. And allow rotary club members to privately shame children who admit to touching themselves.
But if mastubation was an actual sin, babies and children that do it without understanding what their doing would be sinners and their not.
In the LDS church masturbating has consequences. Just like drinking or smoking or getting high or having sex when being single or being married and having sex with a different person or committing some crimes all have consequences in the LDS church.
I know you think it's an evil, sordid thing of this church's members to expect one who claims to be following Jesus to actually follow his example. I realize it wouldn't be beyond your extreme thinking that Jesus whacked off to prove masturbation wasn't a sin to his followers but, for the time being, masturbation has never been said by God to be a sin. It's what masturbation leads many to do and look at that the church wishes it's members to avoid happening to them.
