Some who say masterbation is a sin because it waste sperm which is a potential human, what if one is homosexual and has No attraction to females and has'nt plans on having children?
And then ofcorse the same who diss masterbation would also demand that a homosexual should be celibate,so no sex with men or masterbation?
This seems like it would eventaly cause thoughts of suicide which is also a sin. I still have a hormone called testosterone,should I have my balls sergicly removed so I no longer have this sexual urge?

Jesus does not prove that there is a G-d! I believe in G-d, but there is no full proof that G-d created the universe there are so many theories out there that demonstrate G-d may have not. You need to not be so closed-minded and realize that each person has their own beliefs and unfortunetly not everyone agrees with you. I am jewish and believe that jesus is not the son of G-d. Masterbation is not a sin according to the old testament and torah which G-d wrote. See, this is what I believe.

I'm only 13. First of all God is real, who the hell do you think created the universe. Plus Jesus proves that there is a God. I believe masterbation is a sin. But you don't go to Hell because you masterbate. Everybody sins because NOBODY is perfect. There is only one way to go to Hell. If you went to Hell because of sin then EVERYBODY would go to Hell. If your worried about it then don't do it. You have a choice you know. Nobody is forcing you to do it. If you have a choice then it could be a sin. Wet dreams are not a sin, they just happen. It's not up to you if they happen. With masterbation you do have a choice. Just like with any sin.

You and the other person that talk about master-bating as a sin are insane! Do you guys not have any women in your life? Is that why you sit there and preach how sex and master-bating is sinful? How about priests raping little catholic boys, is that sinful? I think so.

The only reason masterbating would be a sin is if one implied that you were lusting while doing so. Although the Bible does not touch on masterbating, one could presume that it is NOT an act of sin. It gives you sexual release and raises your mood. If we didn't masterbate we would be screwing people, which is a sin when out of wedlock. In the words of Bo Burnham, "If the sex can't be different, and the sex can't be same. Then the only sex left is some left hand shame!"

Most likely, a good amount of people reading through this have the same doubt as myself; whether or not masturbation is sinful. I have searched the web inside and out trying to find an excuse of why masturbation could not be a sin, but in the end I realize why even take a chance? If I have this same doubt that so many others share about masturbation, something must be telling me it’s just not right. Perhaps it is the selfish aspect of masturbation, after all how is masturbating really for the glory of God? If you truly believe that somehow your masturbation works for his glory, then by all means do it! But how many can truly testify to that? I know personally I get no benefits from masturbation, like other sins of its kind; it is a temptation that leads to a short false pleasure that gives me an empty feeling inside after I have done it. I know only after the act of masturbation why in the first place I should not have given into the temptation but like all other sins-- it just keeps coming back with the help of ignorance and excuses to repeat. If you’re here and doubting whether or not you can get away with it, I’m here to tell you to stop searching—you already know the truth and it is up to you to act in it or play ignorant. Keep searching and you will find your excuse to continue masturbation in the name of “stress relief” or “nature”, but not in the name of God.

My boyfriend argues we should wait to have sex until marriage yet he looks at porn and masterbates. It seems he is making me wait and he is refusing but thinks he is not sinning.

If you masterbate is that a form of adultry?..lets say you have a girlfriend and you masterbate is it considered a sin? Im confused about how i think God will punish me if I masterbate and it would be sinning, but he made us all different and if he didnt want us to sin he would have made us to be perfect...gods so great why would he punish me if he loves me so?

you all are jerks.Islam is the religion that will lead you to happiness and will not let you go astray.on the day of judgment you will be asked for your deeds and if you fail you will go to hell. There is only one God and that is Allah and prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is his messenger! Believe me or it will be too late.masterbation is forbidden in Islam and we cannot say "why" to Allah.

As I was saying.all signs of the day of judgement have been completed exept the bigger ones which are #1 arrival of dajal the man with one eye who is captured on an island and will be freed soon and he will make the mountains walk and he will grow plants in seconds and make rain when he wants and sunny when he wants and he will rule the world for 40 days ,he will draw paradise on his hand and ask humans to worship him as a god and non-Muslims will lose their senses and worship him but a Muslim will be able to refuse him and Allah will save him.#2 the nation of ajooj-majooj. this nation is cptured somewhere in china and they are small human type creatures about 2 feet tall and they are licking the wall everyday in which they are captured but they never say "Insha'llah" (if Allah wants) before licking so they can't get out but the day when they have said it, that day they will be freed and they will destroy everything and eat humans but Allah will save the true Muslims.on the day of judgement the sun will come so close that everything will melt and the planets will crash and the universe will be destroyed.pls believe in Allah.remember god has created us and we have to return to him after all.dont take life easy, it is an exam that only some pass and bear the fruit afterwards.why dont you look around you and believe that god has created this world for you.I'm saying again believe in one Allah.

Oh, really now. I am a divorced Christian man, with a very strong sex drive. Even when my Ex-wife & I were at our worst our sex life was great. After we divorced, I had 2 choices, sleeping around, which I refused to do, or masturbate. I then decided to stop after about 2 years. Then, at the age of 38, I had a wet dream! It was the most humiliating thing I could remember. So, What do you think God would rather me do, since you are so "tuned in" with Him? Sleep around, be totally humiliated and embarrassed, or masturbate? I'll choose # 3 and hope to see you in Heaven

praise the Lord Jesus everyone this is good because some don't know the truth. Can you beat off with out the thought in your mind of either a big booty naked chick or some bigstrong mandingo picking you up and doing blah blah blah blah i don't want to go to far boi the women you can
touch phiscally or emotionally.

the problem is and my elder broke this down for me is that i can not just go in a corner and beat off with out seeing something or imaging something. can you seriously? does a little boi just wake up and beat off without the thoughts first? can a girl play with herself with ouit the thought? no its in your mind and The Lord Jesus covered this mind thing and whats good for men is good for women.

28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to LUST her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. to lust people its allabout the lust it comes from the thought thats in your mind and the lusts of the flesh God hates and the lusts of the eye God hates and the pride of life God hates. 2 of the 3 deal with master bation the key word is master you are pleaseing your self which is self worship which is what happens when you lust or covet which is the tenth commandent of God which i know him to be Jesus.(thats for another day)
o yeah and thats to look at her and Lust after her my bad type o but yes its the Lust of the eye working with the Lusts of the flesh and why would you want to do a thing that results when you look at porn? which you know that is a sin? so if the outcome of watching porn is masterbation and you know porn is adultry if you are married and fornication if you are single why would you do it? it is lust and it can kill you i know because it almost killed me i love you in Jesus name.

Why do we need religion? Is it not enough to believe in God and have a relationship with Him without following a man-made institution to influence you with their interpretation of the Bible?

Who wrote the Bible anyway? Was it God? Jesus?

Do you know if the Bible had been changed throughout history? Consider the Old Testament and the New Testament. If you tell me that it has been changed because of God's influence, how do you know that it wasn't the choice of man that led them to choose and pick what and what couldn't be in the Bible? To drive the nail deeper (not a pun for Jesus, I promise you), how do you know that what your preacher preaches is based on God's intentions and not man's intention or even his own interpration for you and even the Bible?

I can say that religion is an easy way to conform its members to become a "good" community, as the guidelines are there, but really, do you NEED religion to believe in God? Do you really NEED religion to know that taking the life of others is wrong? I would list the entire 10 Commandments, but it would be rather redundant.

I might as well just spill all of it. If you think masturbation is a sin because of lewd thoughts for someone outside of your marriage, would you allow a person, whom is single and doomed to be single until his or her death, hypothetically speaking, to never experience the gift of sex to which God has given us, because today's society does not allow him or her to find a partner based on his or her appearance, class, race, personality, etc.? Would masturbation be wrong in his or her favor? Are you one to decide whether or not he or she should experience God's gift? Quite bluntly, I think that not using God's gift at all because you're bound by the rules of a book is an insult to Him. It can be meant to say that because of the Bible, you're too good for God's gift because you aren't in the right circumstances.

If you look at it, masturbating is better than raping others or even cheating. The world would really be a better place if they had masturbated in the privacy of their own bathroom instead of going and carrying out the act to another person.

When you really think about it, if you believe that the thought of lust for another person is justified as doing the act itself, what does that say about God's gift for free thought? If thought was the actual act, boy, I think I can really become Superman in this lifetime. Isn't it based on our choices to pick what is moral and what is not under the eyes of God, but apparently, people are constrewed to believe that even thought is the actual act.

"God has created us in His image." Does that not mean we are all one and belong to a part of the whole as individuals? Do you really believe that there are no shadows in a room filled with light? There's always a balance. Learn from Star Wars, it has some pretty good concepts of balance, whether it be good or evil, light or dark. Anyway, who are you to say that God is ALL goody goody? Who are you to say that other peoples' thoughts are wrong because they don't allign with yours? Who are you to say that they will not be saved because they do not follow a religion? Are you God? I don't think so. For all I know, He's the creator and He can do whatever He wants if He wishes.

How about the army? Just because you're in the army, does that mean you have the license/right to kill even when the Commandment says "Thou shall not kill"? Do you pass it off as "hey, I sinned, it'll be fixed if I confess to God"? If you do, then aren't you saying that your confession is greater than God's given gift of life to the person you killed because of disputable territory? I mean that's what war is about right? Shoot the people who don't allign with your beliefs so they get off the turf that you want?

To tell you the truth, I'm not religious at all, nor am I aetheist, but I still believe that there is a creator.

Hence, to those who are really religious, aren't these the type of questions you should think about when you go to church on Sunday? Aren't you suppose to be asking yourself "Am I following my preacher or God?"? Do you not question your preacher for his ways and dismiss that he is a man as well? Your faith in Him does not come from going to church and listening to your preacher, it comes from within YOU IF YOU choose to believe and have faith in Him. Thus, I ask my question again, do we really NEED religion to believe in God and to have a relationship with Him?

I think the harsh approach of these questions and situations will allow those who strictly follow a religion to open their eyes to who God really is. You don't need a religion to have a relationship and believe in Him. Even to those who don't believe in God, a creator or some type of higher being, can you say that you have the proof to deny that He exists? And I ask this last question because science is on the path of "no proof, then it doesn't exist."
