masturbation is simply selfishness
by OPEYEMI ADEBARI

Sex is not selfish, it is mutualistic.. sex would be totally useless if God never created Eve. It's not self seeking; it is to bless the partners involved. Every sound believer should be glad because sex is a gift from God and not some scientific evolution or philosophical theory
Okay, what's wrong with masturbation? Everything! The fact that it's not expressly mentioned in the bible doesn't make it right..it's implied. It negates God's plan for satisfying man's sexual design. (Gal 5:19). It's the younger brother of fornicationif you masturbate; you are most likely to fornicate. Hey I'm not trying to condemn youall have sinned and have fallen short of God's glory. But it's expedient that we tell ourselves the truth majority of the youth in church today have become slaves to this impure and immoral act we call it safe sex instead of selfish sex born out of greed.. Why should you enjoy it alone, when God had designed to be enjoyed between you and your husband or wife.. Why are you cheating on that guy and that girl that God is reserving for you by masturbating? It's unfair!
I bet to disagree with anyone who says there's nothing wrong with masturbation (2pet 2:2).. why? This is because most if not all who indulge in it have become slaves to itthis is practical idolatry . infact they practically worship the devil when they do it.. The unfortunate thing is that it's so addictive and it can be very difficult to break loose from the habit when it is totally formed. Infact some people have ran high millage in this act to the extent of murdering their conscience and each time they engage in the act, they justify their actionshmmmmmmm.
You think you are enjoying yourself.. when you are actually defrauding yourself.. haven't you noticed some abnormal happens in your life; too much desire for long sleep, nervousness, absent mindedness, lack of focus in everything, easy irritation and inability to meet critical life objectives are medically confirmed consequences of masturbation.this cant even be compared to the spiritual robbery; losing your peace, feeling so unworthy before God, assassination of your prayer and word life haaaaa, masturbation is a bastard!
If only we knew how selfish we have been to God by desecrating he's temple (Rom 12:1) we will be so sorry for ourselves.. this temple is meant for holiness(Eph 5:5-9). Instead we have fed our sexuality wrongly by feeding on pornography, clubbing, reading wild romance novels, engaging in unwholesome sex talks, wild sexual imaginations, sexually inducing music. Add yours to this list. Yet this God we stab in the back has a mind blowing plan on how sex can be used to edify this temple "For God wants us to be holy and pure and to keep clear of sexual sin so that each of you will marry in holiness and honour". (1Thess4:3-4)
Masturbation is a spiritual matter that also requires strict physical discipline. Beyond the deliverance, you need to make a decision to discipline your body to resist sexual seduction in any form. God is not so wicked to have given us sexual organs and place the sexual urge there. He actually wants us to exercise our sexual franchise when we are ripe enough to take responsibility for our sexual actions. I mean when we are married. Please, let's remove every threat that will sweep us away from God's trend.
with selfishness, you can't please God.
