Porn will not stop you from getting married nor will it stop you from doing ministry work.
But, it will interfer will both of those things. It will cause you to not be focused on the true meaning of both things are. If you choose to walk in a life of sin and do not work to remove this you will miss out on God’s blessing for you and if in mininstry it will affect how your mininstry is blessed as well.
This guy I know is stuck in masturbation and lust. He is saved, and has been his whole life. He feels really guilty because he doesn’t know how to stop, but he wants to. Any tips?
the thing that your friend needs to do is first admit that he has a problem and confess this to God. Yes; God knows but He wants to hear it from the person first and ask God to be a part of this battle.
Then he needs to find someone who he can talk to about his problem and provide accountability in his struggle. This can be someone like a pastor, parent, or a consoller. With this person develop a plan of accountability and this person needs to be someone who will hold him accountable and be able to ask the tough questions.
During all of this he needs to remove the things that cause him to lust which ultimatly causes him to masturbate.
Know that he is not alone in this and that God want so much for him to remove this from his life. Also know that there is nothing that we can do to remove the love of our God, nothing!
We are praying for you and your friend as you work through this.
Since me and my friends have started an accountability group, we have debated whether masturbation is a sin. We haven’t held accountable punishment for it, but we still debate it. Is it a sin? Please help us be the best we can be for God.
First I want to say I am a little taken by the wording of punishment for accountability. I hope that it is not as it sounds. There should be no punishment involved with accountability. This should be a place for unconditional love and help for each other.
As for the masturbation is it a sin? Yes; there are no verse’s in the bible that come out and say masturbation is a sin. How ever, it does tell us that lusting after another person is a sin and I honestly do not know a man who can masturbate without visualizing in their head something to help them along. Also sex is a gift given from God to a man and a wife that are married. People have always tried to make them selves feel OK with this act by muddying up the waters but, the truth is that it is a sin.
