Masturbation - Is it a SIN?

Since this question is so often asked of religious leaders, but almost never answered correctly, I thought it was time to clear this up definitively...


No, masturbation is not a "sin", but if it is abused, leading to slothfulness, addiction, social withdrawal, etc, then it is being used "sinfully", just as moderate social drinking is fine, but alcoholism is not.

There is however a biblical caveat to this that Our Lord gave 2000 years ago in Matthew 5:27-30, where he tied "adultery" to "masturbation", and warned of its danger... BUT THIS IS IMPORTANT... One must remember that "adultery" was the violation of the Hebrew command against 'mixing their seed' with non-Hebrews (Deuteronomy 23:2), so Our Lord was warning against masturbating/lusting over non-Hebrews, because it could lead to committing adultery with them.

So Our Lord's warning was, don't do this...
Matthew 5:27-30 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

If it leads to this...
Deuteronomy 23:2 “No one born of a forbidden union may enter the assembly of the LORD. Even to the tenth generation, none of his descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD.

Now you know the truth... So stop letting Christian leaders shame you! LOL 😉

Moderation is key, right?

If masturbation was a SIN we'd all be fucked...


It is also very healthy to do this too. It is a way of releasing stress and good for the body.

The idea that so many could have perceived it to be a sin is not only disturbing, but it's a downright mockery of a divine gift from God. To have the "Feel Good" sensation associated with an evil act when no one is being harmed... truly the work of THE DECEIVER - SATAN!

I am glad it is not a sin. I do, however, now have so much greater understanding about Matthew 5:27-30.

I was expecting to see a lot of fun questions about this one, so I'm a little disappointed.

While I fully agree with everything explained here, I would also add the consideration that I once heard on the matter as a caution. If you abuse it, masturbating can lead to a self-centered perspective on love. Of course, this is a common enough problem with or without any gas on the fire.

Christianity has to many problems and errors with the faith. Corrections like this need to be known across the globe.

The church will always have their own agenda.

Not wanting different spices of life must have been difficult.

Lets hope not ..or I will be DOOOMED
