Masturbation: To Sin or Not to Sin?


In my 43 years of propagating God’s words n the Bible, I have come across numerous people asking me what the Bible says about masturbation: Is it a sin to masturbate or not? Many religious denominations condemn masturbation in whatever manner it is done. In the present Jewish religion, a rabbi has this to say:

“Kabbalah is very explicit about the negative spiritual side-effects of masturbation. The idea is as follows: Your seed is the material by which you procreate; it is the genetic material within you that allows you the opportunity to partner with G-d. When we let human seed go to waste, we squander G-d’s sacred and divine potential”
(http://www.askmoses.com/article.html?h=237&o=53)

While the Jehovah’s witnesses have this to say:

Watchtower 1976 February 15 pp.122-3 You Must Be Holy Because Jehovah Is Holy

“15 In recent years, homosexuality has swept the world. These homosexuals claim that they are ‘bringing it out of the closet’ and they brag by saying, ‘We are proud to be such.’ It was apparent that this erosion of moral standards could pose a danger or threat for God’s holy people, so the congregations were alerted and wrongdoers were cleaned out. Likewise, unclean practices, such as masturbation, which can be a steppingstone to homosexuality, have been dealt with in a serious, yet understanding…”

Sin is defined in the Bible as transgression of the law.

(1 John 3:4) “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”

Everything unrighteous is a sin.

(1 John 5:17) “All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.”

It is a known fact and scientifically accepted that every normal human person experiences occasional lust of the flesh. Even the apostles of Christ testify to this.

(James 1:14) “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.”

Sexual urges in humans is but as natural as experiencing hunger, thirst, tiredness, etc. It is one of the most important processes in the human body. This feeling is moderated by God’s laws and statutes among His people, like the Israelites, because this is God’s instrument in the process of procreation. The Lord killed Onan when he did not obey God’s law to raise seed for his brother who died, and spilled it on the ground.

(Genesis 38:8-10) “And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.”

Onan did not masturbate, as others claim. He lied with his brother’s wife to enjoy the pleasure of sex, but at the point of orgasm, he spilled it to the ground in utter defiance of God’s commandment. So, he was condemned to death.

Frankly speaking, most men (and women), if not all, masturbate — especially those without sexual partners. Even those with sexual partners, like husbands and wife do masturbate also, when situations do not allow them to have sexual intercourse; like when a woman is with her ‘monthly visit’ or pregnant and about to deliver her baby. In a clinic, a man is required by a doctor to masturbate when having a physical check up and evaluation in his capacity to bear children.

In the Biblical sense of righteousness, these situations can not be considered as sin. If a married man or woman, a bachelor, or a spinster, do masturbate to refrain from doing evil or infidelity to his or her partner, are you going to consider it a sin?

(1 Corinthians 7:29; 31) “But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none…”

“…And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.”

Scientifically, there is also evil in too much indulgence in everything we do to our body. Overindulgence in eating, drinking, etc. will cause us to sin and scientifically will eventually cause diseases in our bodies (http://www.uspharmacist.com/oldformat.asp?url=newlook/files/Feat/ACF2F0E.cfm&pub_id=8&article_id=45.)

Gluttony is being condemned by the Bible.

(Proverbs 23:20) “Be not among winebibbers, or among gluttonous eaters of meat…”RSV

Overindulgence in masturbation poses psychological and physiological imbalances. (http://www.herballove.com/library/resource/overmas/fatal.asp)

Scientifically, there are benefits of regular, and not overindulging,in masturbation. In recent study, researchers say that They found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer. They say that men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/3072021.stm)

I do not recommend masturbation to anybody, neither do I encourage anybody to make it a scapegoat of their immoral sexual addictions, but I will not judge nor condemn anybody that because of force of circumstances, and not with evil mind, is doing the act. God judges according to the intents of the heart!

(Jeremiah 17:9-10) “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”

Sins committed by a Christian due to the ‘weakness’ of his flesh is pardonable under God’s mercy.

(Galatians 6:1) “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.”

It is better to marry than to be burned.

(1 Corinthians 7:9) “But if they cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to be aflame with passion.” RSV

May the Lord teach your heart of the proper things to do through His words in the Bible.

God Bless.

    Be extra careful and cautious in greeting via hand shake!

    Hi Babe and bechay!

    “My secret identity”

    • Renz says:

      I’m a married man I admit I do masturbate too most especially when my wife was pregnant and has menstruation. I believe, it’s better this way than to go out there and have sex with somebody other than your wife… It’s like this, if I am to choose between two evils, I will choose the lesser one which is maturbation than adultery.

      • sHea says:

        Sin is sin. There is no greater or lesser.

      • marion says:

        your already a married man can i have your opinion renz? if masturbation is really a sin? im still confused. i admit im doing it….

      • selveen says:

        nope there are 2 kinds of sin. one is pardonable and one is otherwise.

        1 john 5:16-17 “If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.”

      • Judex says:

        You are quite right !

      • Jeremiah says:

        i used to do it very frequently (5 to 10 times a week) but when i joined bible studies and received Jesus as my personal savior, i exercised restraint. I avoided internet porn sites and everything that is of sexual nature. i involved my self in physical activities like jogging and swimming just to distract myself from masturbating.

        To those who still do masturbate, resist the temptation and read 1 Corinthians 6:9. Remember, our body is made for His glory. Also, ask counsel and support from your pastor or Christians brothers.

        But if the temptation persists (spirit is willing but flesh is weak) the Lord understand that we are of dust, dont be disheartened God is merciful :)

      • kQ says:

        but the one who stumbles at one law, is stumbled for the whole law.. your like saying ur going to kill a man rather than to kill him with his whole family. its all wrong

      • uoverme says:

        choosing a lesser of 2 eviles is still CHOOSING evil.
        everyone struggles with it… i have found its just better to go to sleep rather that to worrie about takking matters into you own hand so to speak.

      • Adam says:

        I am a married man, too … in my younger years, i masturbated much not indulging in sexual intercourse … and it has went on in my married life, until i was born-again, when changes started in me … and now, i personally believe that masturbation is a sin.

        i have observed in my Christian life that the more i grow and walk in Christ … masturbation, as has been the sins i have easily done in the past … has departed from me, thanks be to God who has freed me from the law of sin and death.

        masturbation, in the period before i was born-again, was a conscious act … later, ejaculation just happened in my sleep, from erotic dreams (and i believe this erotic dreams are sinful, adulterous in nature because my partners in those dreams was not my wife) … and later on, these ejaculations from dreams has faded, as well as the erotic dreams, thanks be to God for the change in me … a renewing of the mind.

    • Jared says:

      What the hell is wrong with you people!?! So by your law your saying that it is a sin to touch yourself?!? This is the crazy nonsense that leads to rape and molestation!!! Please grow up and find god within each of your own hearts! Following the transcribed nonsense of drunken priest from 2000 years ago is completely crap.

      Do any of you have any idea of the mental capacity of the humans that lived at that time? Do you really believe that we let alone they can truly understand gods will(if it exists?). I have yet to meet god and if I were truly offending him(It) by touching myself I think he would so have made an appearance by now.

      Oh and to the moron who says a sin is a sin…. Lets compare the acts of the Crusaders to a married man making ends meat who masturbates. Let’s see on the left side(crusaders) of the scale you have endless amounts of brutal murder, forced feed beliefs, and pillaging. On the other side you have a guy(or woman) who works there ass off everyday to provide for there family, but touches there own body. If you really classify these two issue on the same page then you should immediately Google the word insane asylum on Google maps and drive yourself there for permanent relocation.

      ABSOLUTELY ABSURD!!!!! In my opinion all of you people shoving this crap down the throats of little children so that you seem correct will be the ones in the fire and you deserve it!!!!

      • Judas Iascariot says:

        YES!!!! Another free-thinker of the world!!

        He is absolutely correct, especially one thing that jumped out for me, the mental capacity of people back then. Yes we are evolving more mentally than physically, but you can not go and read about some people of the past (Zhuge Liang, Leonardo Di Vinci, etc.) and tell me that they are idiots to our standards. We may be evolving more mentally, but we are by far dumber than the humans of the past. Back then maybe they could restrain themselves more or control themselves more, but with the world we live in today with all the references to sex and our much weaker mind, it is idiotic to think restraint is so easy, let alone that masturbation is the same as murder or adultery. I mean hell, I’ve even heard a christian story about how some sins are worse than others:

        In short, a man had a choice between 3 sins: lust, gluttony, anger. He choose gluttony (thinking it least evil), where he then became drunk, stumbled into a house where he saw a beautiful woman and raped her (lust). The husband then walked in and tried to attack the man. The man became angry and killed the husband. He then sobered and found himself in his own house with his mother laying on the bed crying and naked and his dad laying on the floor dead.

        Now you cannot tell me that in that story there was no lesser or greater evil.

        Also the comment on the gay people, “15 In recent years, homosexuality has swept the world. These homosexuals claim that they are ‘bringing it out of the closet’ and they brag by saying, ‘We are proud to be such.’ It was apparent that this erosion of moral standards could pose a danger or threat for God’s holy people, so the congregations were alerted and wrongdoers were cleaned out. Likewise, unclean practices, such as masturbation, which can be a steppingstone to homosexuality, have been dealt with in a serious, yet understanding…”, Is completely terrible. They have no say on if they want to be gay or not, you cannot bash their heads until they become straight, they are gay and GOD CREATED THEM THAT WAY. You cannot choose to be male or female nor can you choose to be deaf or not. I am colourblind, and telling me that me being colourblind is a blasphemy and that I need to stop is the same thing as telling gay’s they need to stop being gay.

  5. R says:

    [...] Masturbation is the manual stimulation of the genital organs (of yourself or another) for sexual pleasure, especially reaching to orgasm or ejaculation. Though, it is sometimes confused to be equally the same as onanism, but it is not.

    Onanism is not masturbation. Onanism is the act of of withdrawing the penis deliberately during a sexual intercourse before the actual ejaculation so that it takes place outside the vagina (also called, coitus interruptus).

    It was derived from Onan, son of Judah (Genesis 38:8-10), who spilled his seed on the ground rather than impregnate his dead brother’s wife: “And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.” Somehow this was twisted by prudes into a prohibition of masturbation.

    Hi Bro. Eli,

    Thank God for this one. I’ve been waiting for this one since this topic was opened (in our forum site), that I needed your ‘stand’ to support my explanations. However, I’ve got a problem to consult which I cannot simply open it up in public, which is also related to masturbation. That’s all.

  7. "My secret identity" says:

    Hi Jeff!

    Im just wondering why u decided to post the letter of dosunmu babatunde when you can in fact answer him directly so that his misconceptions will be corrected immediately.

    I wonder whether your friend dosunmu babatunde has visited local gatherings of the brethren… He probably frequented gay bars that’s why his assumptions are limited to the sceneries he observed at nightclubs and gay bars. Now, he has the guts to make derisive sweeping generalizations against our country and our organization.

    We accept foreigners hospitably but they scorn our people….

    thank GOD and thank you so much bro eli! I’ve been masturbating a LOT, like 3-5 times, almost EVERYDAY! I have a sex partner, but still, i just can’t get enough! Until I read this article, now I know why I’m always feeling weak, and having lower back pains, and always stressed! I hope you realize how thankful I am now!!!!

    • marion says:

      im still confused…. i thnk you know the answer now. i just want your opinion is it really a sin to masturbate?

      • elizer says:

        It is a sin if you ejaculate with cloud mind(unless you are married and you think of your wife, it is not a sin a what the scriptures say and what Bro. Eli explain it. But in my opinion don’t dare to try it, follow the examples of Apostle Paul, no,follow Christ example for he endure all our sins and hang in the cross

  9. EYES says:

    I think masturbation is just normal like urination or regular human disposal as long as you do it necessarilly or uncontrollably because I can feel that I’m re-energized when it release for what reason I don’t know but there are so many studies conducted that tells the advantages of our health for doing it, maybe it is the reason…

  10. education says:

    Wow! This is very intriguing as to expose a personal lifestyle. That thing i did when ever there’s a need for the body to. However, it’s best (personal reason) that my body do the thing,call that, “wet dreams”. We may find many ways to control that ‘urged’ as i (humbly) admit did masturbate on a very limited,very seldom circumstance (5x a year as my memory recalls it right), although am a bachelor,age 32. May you find my funny,amusing lifestyle in having that “urged” thrown at the back of my head under that self old control as you may call it boring. One thing i know when the memory full of testosterone,”it is sharp as a sword”, ready to slash the follies of perverts to an open shame,thei shame!

  11. “My secret identity” says:

    5x a year of “hand” activity (synonym for M) is not normal for a 32 yr old guy… unless u bliv u can fool all of us here!

    Even kids as young as 7 yrs old innocently do the “hand” thing.

    Let’s be truthful here. Anyway, our identities are secret.

      …yeah it is very much possible! 5 times in a year…well if I can clearly remember it, I think I masturbated 10 times last year, and 4 times this year and I feel challenged not to do it for a year.

  12. blue says:

    Honestly speaking, it’s possible that he can do “it” for only 5x a year. You can totally lessen your sexual urges w/ the help of God… even if your still young.

      ..and let us remember, Christians are indeed not normal if the standard of being normal is how the people of this earth see things.

    “My Secret Identity”

    I’ve been trained and reared inside the Church since five years old. I’ve been an active KNC for 6 years and after a short time, I voluntarily submitted myself to be an official member of the Church. Being member of this congregation is not a big change in my daily living. I have never been hooked to cigars, wines, nor things mankind usually enjoy. Adjustment is unnecessary because I am strictly following whatever is implemented to the Church.

    I am an introvert in nature, not necessarily having an inferiority complex. Though I am not made for a teamwork, I motivated myself to be a part of it. I may not be expected to be present in every event happening, especially sports activities, but I never planned to disregard gatherings.

    Bro. Eli became my inspiration. I believe that we have some similarities: scientifically-inclined, introvert, meek, trustworthy, open-minded, rational thinker, and some others. I only lacked memorization capacities, but because of him, I gained interest with the scriptures. I learned through him how important is salvation, both for me and others, that it should be our main focus in living.

    tnx bro eli!to god be the glory!

    im the one who ask this question to you!now i know what will i do to my self!

    cos to tell you frankly, before i do masturbating with evil, mind some times for nothing! just to survive what my flesh needs to!

    when i became a member i start to manage it and control by my self!
    but sometimes i cant stop the call of the flesh!
    because i dont know the whole explanation of this matter.!
    thank god he teach me now!

    hope in god willing

    many people shall open thier mind and hearts!

    to hear th word of god by a little instrument like you!

    Hi “My Secret Identity”

    (Based from your post, which some are off-topic)

    Your comment, “It’s tempting to reply to all of pinch’s accusations: Read James 4:12… But I decided to forgive pinch …. I forgive you for being accusative, hypocritical, judgemental, self-righteous, obnoxious, unforgiving, etc: Read James 5:8-9… “My Secret Identity” replies: God’s preacher did not teach you to be accusative, hypocritical, judgemental, self-righteous, obnoxious, and unforgiving. Cleanse your heart … I forgive you again…. For your info, I’ve seen you in person (ADD convention)…. For your info, I don’t live in poverty and shame, quite the opposite…. For your info, I’d like to greet you with a holy kiss in person once I drop by the clinic.”… Shame on you… you didn’t flush the toilet.”

    Can you point any accusation I made? Have I accused you of anything? Read my posts, and you’ll see who’s far-fetched. It seems that your regressive behavior will not do anything good but will even lead you to greater apostacy and wrongdoing.

    Another comment, “If pinch was indeed a soldier of Christ, he would have defended a “Happy Christian’s” point of view. Instead, pinch went on a barrage of accusative, hypocritical, judgemental, self-righteous, obnoxious, unforgiving statements against “My Secret Identity”…. Mind you, pinch doesn’t have the slightest hint of My Secret Identity but called the person the name a schizophrenic, in direct transgression of the law of the LOrd written in Matthew 5:22…“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”… “My Secret Identity” will be known to pinch come judgment day”

    Let’s take a look on how this “My Secret Identity” distorts the truth to raise it against me. What I said, “Your circulus in probando make me think that you’re schizophrenic (imagine talking with my brain cells asking if they’re still awake).” This “My Secret Identity” is NOT CREDIBLE to listen upon; she does not even know the difference between CALLING, SPEAKING, and THINKING.

    Another comment, “If pinch was indeed a soldier of Christ, he would have defended a “Happy Christian’s” point of view.”

    Let me ask now, Does your post show “Happy Christian” points of view? I ask now my fellow forumers: Isn’t he a “Happy Christian” pretending to be a heterosexual Filipina to fool everyone of us? I knew a man who cheated my fellow internet forumers for making them believe that he’s a straight female by sending two pictures (possibly more than that) of women he ILLEGALLY copy-pasted from various unsuspecting persons. These two persons, this “My Secret Identity” and that homosexual, are maybe related to each other, and since his identity is “secret”, we can’t expect this “My Secret Identity” to admit.

    Had you spotted the copycat culprit? This person is obviously spilling out his betise just to accuse me of accusing him, and even using my OWN post for his personal dissembling. You should know by now how can he afford blathering me for no good reason at all, for we know how INVALID is his stand regarding homosexuals and, to save his pride, he just resorted to ad hominem maneuvers, no more than what Bro. Eli’s adversaries are doing against his person. Anyway, rather than I am insulted, I instead feel intense gladness. “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)”

    I don’t believe “My Secret Identity” is a brethren, based from how he post and how he defensively speaks out of “unprofitable” accusations against me.

    Let’s put some decency and professionalism to Bro. Eli’s blog site and please don’t use it for personal reasons (e.g. to revenge against someone who culled your homosexual love for him) just to show up your smutty reasonings in public to go against him who reveals the truth. Be an educated person; don’t show your nescience in public – it’s for your own good.

    I’ll share the discussion I had on introspectives.org. My answer is always superceeded by Bro. Eli’s, for he is far more better than I regarding this matter. However, I’m not posting these stuff to be scrutinized, so don’t expect me to defend myself regarding these stuff. I am prone to errors and misunderstandings, so better rely to what Bro. Eli will say about it.

    Here are those…

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    VelvetJacket: “i always thought when he (J) said : if your right hand offendeth thee, cut it off “, that was code for ‘don’t masturbate’. what was meant there if not that ?”

    Pinch_Hopper: Let’s read it first. Matthew 5:29, “And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.” If our previous topic is masturbation, then it is improper to give provate interpretations to it. Let’s read II Peter 3:16, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction.” If they add “that was code for ‘don’t masturbate”, it should not be.

    That statement of Jesus Christ is something figurative. What does that verse really meant? In Colossians 3:5, Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:” (Masturbation is NOT mentioned, though for misled religious beliefs, it is uncleanliness). For example, if you believe that to see a woman with evil intent is bad, and then you know that you are sexually stimulated by naked women, then you would find another way for you not to see them. Making that sacrifice can save you from sinning further. However, it is not limited to sexuality. A practical example: If you knew that fatty foods can put you to risk for developing myocardial infarction, you would absain from such foods.

    IO: Regarding masturbation and sex in general, I’m of the understanding that a great many christian denominations and sects forbid, or at least frown upon it. Since there is no mention of it in the bible…why do they frown upon it?

    Pinch_Hopper: Because those so-called Christians who are not teaching Christian doctrines fully, then adding their own words to the one which is written, making men confused.

    Queen_Lyonesse: However, wouldn’t masturbation usually cause the person to think of perverse things? Also, in what extent will you consider it moral? Is masturbating in the following manner moral or not:

    Pinch_Hopper: Note: (The morality of masturbation is not located in the Bible, so I have to give my own thoughts about such questions).

    I want to answer back questions: How sure are you that all those who masturbating think of perverse things? Have you read their minds? Are all masturbating meed to hold their sex organs to be stimulated? How can you say so that a leather fetish is thinking of perverse things?

    Queen_Lyonesse: masturbation due to perverse feelings for a person?

    Pinch_hopper: How about masochists?

    Queen_lyonesse: masturbation with use of sex toys?

    Pinch_Hopper: It is immoral to broadcast it to others.

    Queen_Lyonesse: masturbation while watching or looking at pornographic material?

    Pinch_Hopper: browse my first answer to IO’s question regarding “to jerk off” stuff…

    Queen_Lyonesse: Isn’t masturbation’s purpose to stimulate one-self to release one’s libido? But, in the first place, how can a person have libido if he/she is not feeling or having sexual urges and/or lust?

    Pinch_Hopper: You knew that sexual urges are triggered by parasymphatetic stimulation, while ejaculation is by symphatetic nerve. That’s why your HR & PR increases after the sexual activity. There are persons who can be stimulated by lead pipes, or being scolded by his wife, having an amputation, etc… Urge, there is, but not necessarily that there is lust.

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

  21. K.D.L. says:

    “Scientifically, there are benefits of regular, and not overindulging,in masturbation. In recent study, researchers say that They found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer. They say that men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life.”

    but i am a woman.
    i admit i feel sexual urges and sometimes it is hard to control myself. i would daydream about this particular brother in Church that i really really like, then i’d start doing it. i’d feel ashamed after that becuz i know it is a sin.

    what will you advise me, bro.eli? you said that having sexual feelings is natural. i don’t want to use it as an excuse to consent my lust, but does that mean i can masturbate once in a while?

    “…most men (and women), if not all, masturbate — especially those without sexual partners…”

    and yes, i am single.

  22. EYES says:

    JUST FOR AN ARGUMENT.

    — Fatty foods are ban during Moises time, the wisdom behind of it is to avoid sickness caused by cholesterol.
    — Man prone to heart failure and prostate cancer, masturbation help to avoid it.
    — Man get easily hot and while woman not (is there is wisdom?)
    — Everyman is a liar (I think there is a verses of this )
    — Who said that masturbation shall be condemned, then he is a liar
    — As God will not forget that we came from a dust.
    — Then NECESSITY and UNCONTROLLABILITY somestimes will justified (Read the old testament, there so many instances that the people of Israel doing their own well and others are justified as long as it can’t transgress the law)
    — And for those who insisted that we should be clean and this is an act of uncleanliness, then it is very good but put this first in your mind; Matthew 23:23(Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

  32. inside man says:

    every human living creatures doing sexual acts and having

    lust, most of the time animals likes dogs doing sex

    everywhere they want they are not ashame of

    it….flies…i’ve seen also etc..so it’s a

    process of pro-creation given by God to us, it’s natural..

    so all people with complete senses felt this..but God given

    us mind to know which is to be shame of to show our lust

    everywhere, but other people do like dogs showing their

    lust in films etc., but if you felt it on your own and hiding it

    resulting to masturbation…is it consider a force of

    circumstances and possibly understood by our God..and

    the answer of brother eli is crystal clear!….

    Bro. Eli, I masturbate, just like some of the brethren here, 3-5 times a week. My age is 23. I do not think of girls, especially the female brethen. I do not want to go to hell because of masturbating and fantasizing girls at the same time, but thanks to God, I’m relieved to the topic that is posted here. I”ll try my best to do this in moderation or even better, not to do it at all.

    brother eli,

    thank you so much for discussing this topic on your blog, this actually was one of my questions that I was hesitant to ask ever since I was baptized. But now I am already enlightened.

    I am crying now , because we are lucky that we were able to know the truth adn the way to salvation because of you.
    Thanx be to God.
    we love you bro Eli.

  43. gua00504 says:

    Dear bro eli,
    Thanks GOD for the word of truth you read and shared to all of us, especially to those who are concerned in this topic. man or woman single or married, iam very much happy.
    i was been very eager to ask you this topic, but most of the time im afraid, and even resulted to write a letter but i dont know how to give it to you. and now that you have this website… i can now confide myself regarding all this matters with out showing in public.
    Thanks be to GOD for making me understand “masturbation” what this is all about. For i am single and 30yrs old now and working. i dont have girlfriend and not planning to have one. For you have tought me that as ADAM was given a helper by GOD, i do believe in that same manner. if i only feel this urge of having sex then i feel the need of having a wife. but when this urge subside i fell my self not having need of one. only this masturbation hinders me all the time, that i judge myself in doing this. Mentally and spiritually i am bothered.
    Im not doing this as 5 times a week, i have small control, but the truth remains im doing this. sometimes for pleasure and sometimes doing it while not having the thoughts of doing it. and this “doing it for pleasure” is the one that concern me most.
    Please bro. Eli, i know your busy all the time, and i know this letter will just eat your precious time, but i dont have any body who can help me and answer me much than you can do. if ever i may wish for a partner in life, advice me someone, but if you wanted me to remain single, as far as posible. With GOD’s help. I remain.

    Salamat sa DIOS

  45. Truthcaster's Friend says:

    if masturbation is being done for pleasure, it is sin, but if it is done for a person to prohibit himself to do evil things then it is pardonable.. Sexual arousal may fall down after masturbation, prohibiting someone to think sexual pleasures in mind thus, getting these evil thoughts out of the mind.

Sexual arousal may fall down after masturbation, prohibiting someone to think sexual pleasures in mind thus, getting these evil thoughts out of the mind.”

      masturbation is pleasure. dont treat the word pleasure as a sin. just the over doing of it is the sin(masturbation). if it is always in your mind. like gluttony, if food is always in your mind it and you dont fight the urge and u get obese its a sin, same as bulimic/anorexia where food is always in the mind.

  48. gerj110698 says:

    i believe it doesnt matter if one is single or married..with a partner or without…everyone experiences what is naturally given by GOD to humans to experience…And also,bawat isa ay natutukso,kapag nahihila ng sariling masamang pita…..but we are given the WORD OF GOD as guide in dealing with everything.

    we can study to be persevering,patient,and self controlling.
    Trying to be busy with gawain or church activities to ward of evil….
    fasting is also a way of warding off evil thoughts…created by our enemy and even ourselves.
    we can also compel ourselves to offer thanksgiving ,that we can force ourselves to abstain from sinning with GOD’S help.
    Reading the bible and connecting to GOD thru this blog,and our broadcast programs…hearing GOD’S WORD thru bro.eli’s preachings surely is a way of strengthening the man….the innerman….

    i know a man…for less than 10 years now…who agonize as a normal man….but thanks be to GOD…may mga bagay na natututunan as we age thru the years…we can always learn to be more persevering and it is thru GOD’ s help.pagsanayan po natin…if we cant eliminate it…at least we can try to minimize…

    WITH GOD’S HELP.We know the end of the road ahead of us…and time is short….but we can learn to hold back and use most of our time focused on our job>MAT 28;19-20.and slowly one can see and observe the results.

    And as bro.eli said ….consume the energy of our youth…release your might for the GLORY OF GOD!!!!

    MASTURBATION (Done without sin?)
    1.Required by doctor for clinical studies? Assisted only by wife’s hand?
    2.Sexual pleasures by couples using hand contact?
    3.Doing it without thinking any lust or with an evil mind? Is this possible. I think doing this will not bring you to orgasm.

    MASTURBATION (Done with sin)
    1.Required by doctor for clinical studies. Assisted by other hand’s.
    2.Doing it with lust and an evil mind.
    ALTERNATIVE
    1. Wet Dreams.
    2.Get Married
    3.Be perfect as God is Perfect.
    4.Devout yourself to God.
    5.What else…….I believe there are many ways……… kindly add your suggestions as other alternatives for MASTURBATION…….

    Thank you and God Bless.

  50. Rhina says:

    Masturbation is a sexual act. There is nothing wrong in sex if done in the right place at the right time. To masturbate in own’s privacy in moderation and for purposes that will not hurt others is tolerable. eating, drinking or any other act of man just like sex, when abused and done more than what is normal will tantamount to sin. Scientific and medical requirement to masturbate are exactly exemptions from sin. If one however can control himself or divert his desires to other things then it is something that can be viewed as a good remedy. At least we have read the diverse justification of the pros and cons, rather that evade the issue, it is a good thing that we tackled it today. It is nice that Bro Eli did not hide this topic. GLORY TO GOD.

  51. VaRRoCK GiRL says:

    wow.. this was the question that still going on my mind and want to ask to Bro.Eli and now, as I’ve read the topic about Masturbation my mind and my heart was enlightened.. because as a girl and a single one i did and i do feel ashame because really sometimes it really urges me and i can’t control what i feel.. as i’ve read one who comment here too, what’s going on my mind when it came to me the feeling of urge i said to myself it would be better for me to get married but after that pass i said DIOS ng BAHALA.. it’s true what Bro.Eli said that it would be It is better to marry than to be burned. ^_^ Thanks to GOD Bro.Eli!

      see my comments on this. Be thankful to God not to deceiver like Eli Soriano… If he’s not a deceiver he must have given you the truth….

      Follow Christ Jesus not man like Soriano for he just deceives you.. read God’s Holy Words nad you’ll be set free from such deception…Joh 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
      Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
      Joh 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    2. stay away from malls and public places where there are so many sexy girls
    3. stay away from beautiful girls even though they are not sexy enough, they trigger lusty senses.
    4. stay busy doing profitable things, not lusty imaginations
    5. dont be alone when sleeping! turn that lights on!

  66. george says:

    Sin is a transgression of the law… there is no law about masturbation

    By the law is the knowledge of sin… the law does not give me a knowledge of masturbation.

    What so ever is not of faith is sin.. but faith cometh by hearing and we hear nothing of the sin of masturbation.

    The thought of foolishness is sin, but if a man is not lusting for fornication when he is masturbating he is not thinking foolish

    It is not what we are doing in moderation with our bodies that is sinful but what is going on in our heart.

    Husbands and wives away from their mate, a widow or widower wishing for their mate,a divorced person remembering their love for their mate who no longer wants them is not committing adultery in their heart. A single person imagining their unknown mate on wedding night is likewise not wishing to formicate.

    Many would rather die than fornicate and dishonor God. Controlled thinking and temperance in masturbation may actually decrease thoughts of fornication both in our waking and sleeping hours.

  72. Humble Mark says:

    I believe Eli Soriano is not truthful enough to say the truth of what the Holy Words of God, Christ Jesus the One True Living God Most has said about this particular indulgence of the flesh. When Eli Soriano said; quote”but I will not judge nor condemn anybody that because of force of circumstances, and not with evil mind, is doing the act. God judges according to the intents of the heart!”

    Now let’s listen to God, Christ Jesus. “1Co 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.”

    Therefore, it is a sin against your own body..which means.. it is a sin..1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

    Wherefore Eli Soriano is not telling the truth but trying to tickle people’s ears.

    Now the question is: is he a deceiver?
    1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
    1Co 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
    1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
    2Co 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
    2Co 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
    2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
    2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
    2Co 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
    2Co 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
    2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

      STUPID ARGUMENT! AS LOGICAL AND ANALYTICAL TO REASON, UNDERSTAND THE CONTEXT. AS IT WAS QUOTED, YOU’VE ANSWER YOUR FOOLISHNESS;

      (Jeremiah 17:9-10) “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”

      THAT MEANS GOD WILL JUDGE OUR ACTS ACCORDING TO THE INTENT OF OUR HEART. THEREBY, IT IS NOT OUR GAUGE TO JUDGE BECAUSE WE DON’T KNOW THE HEART OF OTHERS. THAT’S WHAT THE BLOG ABOUT MASTURBATION SAYS.

    This topic ameliorated my mind of such thinking that is awkward to be asked in a brother in church and with this topic, there is no more clutter in my mind.

    Hi bro. Eli,

    I was a catholic before and they taught us that withdrawal is one of the natural ways to a pregnancy control. In reading your article, please correct me if I’m wrong that what Onan had done is literally “withdrawal”.

    In addition, please enumerate biblical ways on how to prevent pregnancy from happening.

    We thank God for having you.

    We love u so much!

    Love lots/ sis in Christ

  85. Bro.WindFanG says:

    Bro. and sisters we must be always cautious and prepared for the matter that the devil is always around us to give us confusions and deceive us …. Our father Almighty is not a god of confusion … we must walk in his ways ,remember that even jesus christ have felt also what we have felt…. i have read in the bible that a kind of attitude we must have is like the attitude of lord jesus christ… We must work for our salvation. I also felt those “urges” but still fighting.

    Like what Bro. Eli said……
    I do not recommend masturbation to anybody, neither do I encourage anybody to make it a scapegoat of their immoral sexual addictions, but I will not judge nor condemn anybody that because of force of circumstances, and not with evil mind, is doing the act. God judges according to the intents of the heart!

    ………………..

    do not make it a scapegoat .. neither make it an excuse of our weakness!!… bro. and sisters remember that we are in the Church of God and the king is the lord jesus christ… we are being polished to become perfect … Salamat sa Dios

    i really blessed and fulfill of answers in my mind right because I’ve been masturbate like others so now my mind refresh all the struggling question in my mind i think God 4 everything and fr the website who became an instrumen of God’s commandment….

  87. Jud says:

    1. You are too young to get married or financially not prepared.

    2. You have sexual urge.

    3. Do you then masterbate or find a woman somewhere or attack a girl somewhere ? You risk going to jail !

    4. If you masterbate, you are safe. No risk committing adultery or going to jail ! Doing nothing may not be good for your physical health. No one wait for wet dreams !

    • One up to three could be considered righteousness. But look animals like carabaos, horses, pigs, dogs, and most of all the goat would NEVER masturbate!

      • clive023 says:

        But do you know that monkeys masturbate? Four-legged animals do not just masturbate, they can’t masturbate.

  88. jano says:

    thanks be to GOd for giving us a wonderful preacher like you. Bro. ELi, more power and may God continue to bless and guide you.

    I am truly enlighten by this topic, because i masturbate a lot even when i became a member of this congregation.i cannot control myself, maybe i can prove that i cease doing this thing for almost a year, but then it came to my mind to do this thing again. one thing is true.. if you make yourself busy in involving in church activities you can stop this kind of thing or do this in moderation(that is proven!).
    for all my brethren—just always put in mind that you must not do it just for your pleasure a bad intent, God sees the heart anyway…

    To God be the Glory

  89. lois says:

    Bro. Eli Soriano taught us to be a better person, he really is an instrument of God to change many people the kind of life they had before adultery,fornication,lasciviousness and uncleanness. And for that thanks be to God for the greatest gift. We have found a true preacher!

  90. buning says:

    topic is good.. I’ve learned a lot.. bro Eli is truly the man/preacher that God sent in our times. Hope that everyone will visit his blog to get new knowledge and apply it in our daily living… God bless you Bro Eli!!!!!!!! hope to read more topics in your blog..

  91. albert says:

    thank you bro.eli me too i was confused on that matter.
    I thank God for giving us bro.eli soriano.?
    But how about if the men are single>is masturbation is a sin to a single..?
    thanks to God.we hope that you may comeback here in Phils.and May God protect u always together with your KNP..

  92. wolverine says:

    I believe the issue is up to what extent MUST we be pure, not up to what extent CAN we still be considered pure before God. Well the Bible is crystal clear about this issue:

    “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, IMPURITY and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, AND THE LIKE. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this WILL NOT inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5.19-21 (NIV)

    The Apostle Paul enumerates differrent sins. Why “obvious”, he says? because these acts are flat sins. We don’t have to argue if these things are right or wrong, because they are obviously sin, right? Besides it is written! Now, Paul enumerates sexual sins first;sexual immorality, impurity(unholiness) and debauchery(unrestrained and uncontrolled sexual appetite/lewdness). Then he goes on saying until the words…AND THE LIKE (i.e. acts-big or small-on the likeness of these)

    Up to what extent then must we be pure? well, listen to this:

    “But among you there must not be even a HINT of sexual immorality, or of ANY KIND OF IMPURITY, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people” Ephesians 5.2(NIV)

    So the answer up to what extent is very simple, Not even a HINT!

  93. Alain Christopher Concon says:

    It’s a good device to avoid adultery, surpass sexual desires, and avoid cancer.
    It’s not bad for me, but like bro. Eli had said overindulgence from doing it is bad.

  94. Learner says:

    If one could masturbate without any lustful thought then masturbation would be natural. In truth, we are driven by what we have seen, read or heard in the past to masturbate with fantasies, and that is addiction which can destroy our life. So long as we do not compromise with this truth and keep asking God for guidance, there is still hope. A pure man can still make love to his wife but he does so without any reference to what he has learnt from either friends, books or TV.

  95. Tony says:

    Great article. This is a tough issue. I have struggle with it most of my life. I think it’s good for Christian men and women to encourage one another in sexual purity. At the same time be merciful and understanding.

  96. japs says:

    i’m afraid to open it to anyone, but you bro Eli thank you, you answered my question.. My God help you to propagate the Word of God… i love you brod Eli… To God be the Glory..

  97. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. So, we need to be careful in everything we do. The images shown in here is too great. It has something to do with our responsibilities in relation to our body. We should observe Chastity. We were bought with a price!

  98. Judex says:

    Whatever God has created is good !

  99. JI says:

    Leviticus 15:16

    16And if any man’s seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.

    31Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is among them.

    Uncleanness is a Sin.

    An Air Compressor has a safety valve. Electrical network has a fuse. So, Humans have masterbation as a safety valv or fuse so as to prevent us to hurt girls like the sexual freaks in prison or in the field.

  102. phim says:

    the morality of sin cannot be contextualized.we should judge moral issues objectively regardless of of circumstances and situations. coz if that is the case there would be no objective truths, everything would be relative. a wrong is alway wrong. as the an adage would say, east is east and west is west and there is no way the two will meet. as with our passions and desires, these things should be ordered towards a right end. in themselves they are not bad, but they should be guided with reason, passions are blind! the human body tells us this, the head is on the top to guide and enlighten, below are the heart and our organs to be guided and ordered. human sexuality is a beautiful thing!but it was made not only for ownselves but ordered towards the other. that’s why man and woman are different, but they compliment to each other making it perfect the union expressed in marriage wherein man and woman became one in the spirit of love. which is self-giving-to love is to love the other, to give our selves to the beloved- that’s why saint paul would say love is never selfish, vain,etc…just read the bible…

  103. Leslie says:

    We girls specially virgins. i dunno but i dont think we need masturbation. Thats something we can live without. However for men its understandable. This is just my personal belief.

  104. ciry says:

    What more we need to hear with this? Thanks God for sending bro. Eli in our time in the midst of verily lusty world which worse we know that this is one of the common diversions or better to say hobbies for most of the youngsters nowadays. They inflicted in thier minds that this was natural and excusable in the eyes of human and God.
    May God give you more strength Bro. Eli, we are thankful to God for having you in our time.

  105. levis says:

    Masturbation is a sin. Period. It is an immoral sexual act. Christ is very clear on this. He said in His Beautitudes in the Book of Matthew, that any one who looks at a woman lustfully is committing adultery with her in his heart. Even lustful thoughts in the heart, is adultery in the sight of Christ and of God. How much more the very act of masturbation which is obviously springs from lustful thoughts. There is no justification and glossing over the Word of God. No masturbator will ever enter the Kingdom of God. Maturbation is sexual immorality and no sexually immoral will ever enter the Kingdom of God, whoever you are. Read it in Galatians chapter 5. God never compromise with sin. and masturbation is a sexual sin.

    • Naiinis says:

      You haven’t engage or done this thing? because if you did this, even once, you will definitely will not enter Heaven because according to you, God never compromise with sin. I hope you live with your hype.

  106. levis says:

    Anyone who calls himself a Christian but keeps on masturbating is not a true Christian but deceiving himself. Masturbation is condemned by God and even the conscience of a Christian will feel the deep seated guilt wrought by the Holy Spirit of God after the act of masturbation. Masturbation go against holiness, purity and sanctification which is the very objective of Christ on converting, regenerating and saving a sinner. Sinners are saved and become Christians to live a holy life, and not to indulge in carnal masturbation. The act of masturbation is an insult to the indwelling Holy Spirit and a trampling of the precious blood of Jesus Christ. But by the power of the Holy Spirit, a Christian lives a holy and pure life as God desires him to live.

    so yeah, is it ok to watch porn while masturbating? man im so confused, and how the hell do u masturbate without thinking any woman?

    tnx and glory be to GOD.

    • Naiinis says:

      you can masturbate without watching porn, like, masturbating like any physical act is already in us, there will come a time that your body will look for it, but according to bro.eli it depends on your intention, if your intention is just to release “things” you feel, i guess it can be pardoned. because even if you don’t want it, it suddenly enters you.

      • Michy says:

        Bro. Eli says…
        “I do not recommend masturbation to anybody, neither do I encourage anybody to make it a scapegoat of their immoral sexual addictions, but I will not judge nor condemn anybody that because of force of circumstances, and not with evil mind, is doing the act. GOD JUDGES ACCORDING TO THE INTENTS OF THE HEART!”.

        he doesn’t mention “IT DEPENDS ON YOUR INTENTION.” and It’s impossible that you are masturbating WITHOUT imagining having sex with someone or fantasizing someone that leads you to do that. Remember, GOD JUDGES ACCORDING TO THE INTENTS OF THE HEART..

  110. sandra says:

    1.masturbating with evil thoughts and mind is a sin for example your single or not married, if you masturbate with evil imagination towards a man or woman can be considered fornication. just remember matthew 5:28-just mere looking a woman to lust after her is already commiting adultery , and you havent yet touch the body of that woman but you already sinned by mere looking at her body with evil thoughts, same also in masturbation , it is evil if you do and imagine it with evil thoughts
    2. a married man or woman who masturbates thinking only their partner is not a sin by doing it by force of circumstances, but thinking other than your wives or husband then it will result to adultery.

  111. chan says:

    so i’ll make up some fictional girls on my imagination while I masturbate. since they dont exist I wont commit adultery right??

    tnx again, more power

    • jas says:

      There are three things that you need to know.A man is a spirit soul and body.
      Jesus said you must be born again. When we believe in Jesus we are born again and becoem a new creature.The spirit is then born again and the previous moral and spiritual condition is passed away.The boble says we are born again with the incoruptible word of God. So this new creation is after God.It does not want to sin anymore.The soul and the body is a different isue.We are to present our body as a living sacrifice.

      Remeber the mind is to be renewed with the word of God.

      One of the fruits of the spirit is patience.Exercising this fruit will help you wait till marriege.Then there is another fruit of the spirit called self control.

      Now we can controll the desire of the body with the new man.The thing is we spend most of our time feeding our minds with things that feed the flesh rather than the spirit man.A pastor once said a bible reading christian stops sinning and a sinning christian stops reading the biblle.A good experiment would be to replace the free time we have with bible reading for a month inclidung tv time asnd see the difference.Our mind will be easy to control.

      So if it is tue we are to grow the fruits of the spirit, then we can take charge of outr body desires with the fruits of the spirit.

      In conlusion making uo people in our minds to masturbate is not the right way to deal with it.

  112. jAS says:

    I cannot pretend to know if masturbation is right or wrong However………….
    If your conscience always condemns you after masturbating and you want to stop, it is possible.
    2corinthians 5:17 says that if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation.Jesus said we must be born again. So we are a new man that is our spirit man.
    Paul said “1Co 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have ……….”

    You the new man, the born again man has the ability to keep your body under.Paul the new man kept his body under the new man.

    I keep my body under the spirit man.Iam not body ruled but spirit ruled.I live my life inside out.Let the new man manifest on the outside.
    So in short Know you are a new man, then keep your body under the new man.

  113. thomjones says:

  117. It happens, sometimes the urged is so strong. So, I think prayers and strong devotion to god may help and maybe is the answer to stop from doing this.

  118. Chard says:

    Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ! it is very uncomfortable for me to question this but I think I need it for my peace of mind. I’m 20 y/o single, I would like Bro. Eli to clarify if a person with elevated hormone like testosterone commit masturbation would it be considered as a forceful circumstances like what you had explained on this article? If I do it due to the influence of this hormone and not by evil mind do I commit sin or not? What can the Bible advise to me to control this urgency. I was afraid that I might commit this kind of action since many years that I abstain from this activity and now I’m at the age of young adulthood where in sexual hormones are at its peak. Thank you po!

  119. Judex says:

    Today we, men, are discussing about Sin or No Sin ! Masturbation or no masturbation ! To kill or not to kill etc etc.

    When I was a Child I learned from the Religious Leaders that God is Omni present, Omni bla bla bla ……., that is He is everywhere always, He knows all things all the time past, present and yet to come, He is all powerful. He must have known that at a point in time Sin would come and stays for ever after as we know it. So what He did to prevent Sin and now we, Men, have to suffer and be punished ? Why He is not shut and block his most beautiful Angel called Lucifer ?

    Finall I am not religious because all these do not make sense to me !

    • jfw says:

      what verse in the b bible saying that god is everywhere?
      do you think god is in hell having ice cream with satan?

      • Judex says:

        It was my Religious Leaders who taught me that God is everywhere and knows all things.

        As a Child I was confused and still am as an Adult. I was wondering that if God knows all things in advance, HE should have known what Satan and Humans will eventually do. Recently I asked Mr. Jack Hook for an answer. According to him, only the God Heads know what is biblical truth and why we do not understand. I believe in God as the great Engineer of the Universe, but I always inquire about what I believe are contradictions. For example, Adam and Eve hid themselves and God had to call them. Here, I wonder why God did not know where they were hiding. I have great respect to the Creator and to the Religious Leaders of all religions, but I always ask Questions !

  120. Child of Jesus says:

    I love what most people had to say about this topic very insightful, I would just like to add God made us with certain body functions to test ourselves and have various ways of fasting perhaps I’m right or perhaps i’m wrong just an idea…. God has given me a mouth to eat, drink and speak out of may I choose any to fast from God has given me the eyes to see things, may I choose certain things to fast from t.v, facebook, or movies exct. God has given us hands to work with we may fast to work or do labor work and use them only for praise for fasting God has given us a sex instrument either a penis or a virgina we will reguardless either have lustful thoughts, wet dreams, masturbate, or have sex, either one we can choose we can choose that at least God doesn’t mention in the bible which is masturbate but even if so we can use that to stop and minimize the masturbation as a way of fasting our flesh needs for God

    • Judex says:

      We really do not know if we are right or if we are wrong !

      No one gives matches and knives to his children to play with because he does not need to test his children. He already knows the danger of matches and knives. The matches can burn the children and put the house on fire, as an example. So, did God give us a thing to play with when HE already knows that thing is dangerous ? Simple logic. Or maybe we simply cannot understand things in a higher level of thinking that is not ours.

    This thing,we called cock playing among normal men,is just a natural outlet of the human body,,,sometimes it is better to do this,than to harm the opposite sex,,masturbating is better than raping…

    • Michy Carlos says:

      hehe.. you don’t having intercourse with opposite sex but you are imagining that you are having intercourse with somebody that’s why you are masturbating. according to Matthew 5:27-29 (27Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

      28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

      29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.)

      Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand. (Micah 2:1 AV)

      Masturbation is SIN!

  125. Judex says:

    Is wet dream a SIN ? Why we have it when we were younger.

    • Judex says:

      I gave more thought to my Question. I made some research. Why Wet Dream ?

      It appears that the Human Body builds pressure in itself in many ways. I would imagine a Volcano that finds an outlet because of too much pressure. So, Wet Dream is similar to an outlet that reduces the Body sexual pressure.

      Masturbation is a conscious way to reduce the Body Pressure, I think. Maybe, when addicted to it, we might consider it as a SIN.

      It is also possible that in the centuries before, the Country needed Soldiers (Fighters) and it was recommended to make many of them like breads in a bakery. We needed many of the Children (Soldiers) to fight. So, do not masturbate, but make Children to produce Soldiers. Is not the Bible a Book of Wars ? I read so many wars, so much fighting in the Bible. So, they were recommended not to throw their seeds into the soil, but rather to produce Men to fight and defend the country. The then recommendation is that masturbation is a SIN. I believe that many Goverment/Religious Sects tampered with the Bible when there was no control over that Book.

      Why Siracides not included in the Bible ? It was supposed to be part of the Bible. Just an example. I believe it is a good Book that has been excluded ( thrown out !).

    is it ok to watch anime porn while masturbating?? pls answer

  127. genius!, you can explain the matter properly. While this topic I was looking for and have been met here. very helpful and thank you……http://secretofmind.com/

  128. Win says:

    To whom it may concern:
    If you’re a man, how could you do such thing, a masturbation without imagining a woman’s genital parts, that could triggers of oneself urge to masturbate? Isn’t it true that the attraction to opposite sex that gives us the urge and feelings that pushed a man to masturbate? Aren’t it sinful according to the bible that you will be committing adultery by just imagining a beautiful lady that you want to be with? So once your imagining a woman’s body aren’t you commiting a sin? To masturbate it is the imagination that works to satisfy one’s sexual urge.
    Please give me a good reason or explanation regarding this matter.. for clarification only…. for me and for others.

  129. Judex says:

    The Body is a network of Nerves. Many surfaces on the body are like Radars. They react to very hot, very cold, sharp things like a nail or a needle. This protects the Body from burns, cuts etc. Obviously, there happens accidents that actually burn or cut the Body.

    Further, the Body is very bio mechanical. There are times when pressure are released as in wet dreams. Same thing happens in masturbation. Getting addicted is possible same as getting addicted in smelling the Vicks or mentholatum Inhaler, or smoking etc.

    There is also the hydraulic part of the Body that caused Blood Pressure and others.

    Any pressure that is not released can cause bottle neck in the system and cause pain.

    Why masturbation is a sin and Constipation is not a sin ? Both need pressure release ? Obviously, we can use Human Language to argue because one is sexual and the other one is ….is what ?

    Hmmm… “seed spilled on the ground”… Sperm cells are “Seeds” only if they are in “FERTILE” condition (capable of fertilizing an egg cell). If its not, its nothing more than body fluids. I’m married and i love masturbation. I’ve been doing it almost everyday since high school and i noticed i look WAY YOUNGER than my batch mates, my hair quantity/quality is still the same even though that of my batch mates and cousin’s hair were mostly starting to lessen. I do not have wrinkles. My skin is great. I hardly have any gray hair. I think it has something to do with LOW TESTOSTERONE level in my body since my wife and i do it frequently aside from my masturbation. Plus, my wife and i never use contraceptives but she never gets pregnant (maybe because my sperms never get the chance to mature/become fertile) so we are extremely happy with our s-life. 1 son is enough for us.

    What is the answer of Mr. Eli Soriano…is it a sin ir not?

    • Otan says:

      Masturbation is not a sin, but overindulgence in it is. It also becomes a sin if you do it with evil mind (masturbating while fantasizing your neighbor’s wife or a 6-year-old girl).

      All in all, the rule is “God judges according to the intents of the heart”. But masturbating per se is just as natural as hunger and is not a sin.

      • michy says:

        well.. I cannot judge a person why are they masturbating… Only God can see the heart of a person…

    oh this is coming from a follower of a religion that was started by that false prophet Charles Tate Russel? hmmm “given eyes to see”?? more like eyes to be blinded if you ask me…..he prophecied the end of the world 3 times and was wrong on all three. you follow a religion started by that guy? Oh yeah….and Micheal the archangel and Jesus are not the same thing.

    I can’t help but feel dismayed by some of the above posts which, to me, reveal people at odds with their basic humanity. It seems to me we were given, or have evolved, a very rich field of experience and feelings to be enjoyed in a simple wholesome way as a part of being rounded mature people. And yet contributors retreat into austere self-negation fortified with Biblical imperatives which, as far as I know, simply don’t exist.

    I was raised in the Catholic Church and look back on adolescence as a period of unremitting conflict between my instincts and the Vatican’s unforgiving teachings on masturbation. I now regard Catholicism’s strictures as perverse – particularly given the church’s utter collapse of moral authority following recent child abuse scandals. I still regard myself as a Christian but am content to listen to my own conscience rather than the Vatican’s hypocritical Catechism.

    I am one half of a totally collapsed marriage. My sexual urges are as strong as ever. I don’t wish to violate what’s left of the sanctity of my home life by going out to have affairs. I happily embrace the solution of regular masturbation as and when the need occurs. I have Christian friends far stricter than I who are in the same predicament and have arrived at the same solution. A close woman friend – a US fundamentalist – is entirely at peace with her feelings and masturbates regularly with pleasure and without conflict in the absence of her husband’s attentions. Am I wrong? Is my friend wrong? I think not.

    Some of the very strict views given in this thread are simply absolutist and I suspect their authors will be absolutist about everything. The flip side of such attitudes is a refusal to make decisions and judgments about moral issues. That’s up to the individuals concerned – but nobody who refuses to calibrate complex personal issues and instead takes refuge in doctrine should expect to get a hearing outside of their closed world.

    its better to marry is you cannot control yourself… but what if one is a homosexual? just having thoughts about sex is sin, when you masturbate you think of sex…

    so, can a homosexual stay righteous? when sexual urges are natural?…sooooo confusing

    Too many Men assume they know the Truth !

    Who created the act of Masturbation ?

    Who created the Devil ?

    Who created free thinking and free acting ?

    Are All related to the origin of Creation ! So, who is responsible for this state of affairs ? We might be far from understanding the Truth !

  140. I agree with this post! Better to marry if can’t control yourself. Thanks for a great share!

    Great post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog and I’m impressed! Very helpful info specifically the closing section :) I deal with such info much. I used to be seeking this certain info for a long time. Thanks and best of luck.

  142. Razel Hasnah says:

    To mastubate too much just to follow the “will of the wicked heart” is to corrupt your original being which leads to destruction.

    Alhough i already married I honestly say,that i am doing masturbation ,but after ive done it,i am blaming myself,is this bugling my conscience?and i always do masturbation everyday,,,does it mean that sooner i will have a prostrate cancer?help me what to do?bro. Eli please,,,

  147. pointsandangles says:

    This is just comforting (no pun intended).

    The problem with some is they do not acknowledge certain realities in life.

    And it’s because of this that though some become tempted at some point to masturbate and commit it, they don’t admit it to others. But in reality, where it really matters, they do it.

    So better just accept the words of God as blogged here by Bro. Eli. We cannot deny things nor lie from God. He sees us and knows us. Be real.

  148. Marie Yap says:

    Another sensible blog, I love it… Bro. Eli is the true only sensible preacher in the whole world…

  149. tops says:

    Remember. You are still human and not angels or spirit being. When you are young and hot blooded, it is hard to control passion. When you are old, sex seldom occupies your mind.

  151. Albert says:

    So, is it a sin to masturbate if you’re a 16-year-old boy who has a very hard time controlling temptations?

  152. My nick name's Karan Shoka says:

    OF COURSE Masturbtion is VERY SINFUL.
    Masturbation is a sin of adultery.Read Mathew 5:28.Sin of adultery because of that person do the masturbation with imagine their imaginer sex partner in his/her brain.

    Masturbation is a sin of sex deviation like homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexual, oral sex, petting.Masturbation is sex deviation because of that is not normal sex as God created it., although somebody do that without imagine their imaginer sex patner(ussualy woman/girls) Normal sex is male with female.Read Rome 1:26 to 27
    Masturbation can be called selfie sex.
    Ok i am sure this explanation and the verses are very clear for you.
    Jesus Bless You
