Is Masturbation a Sin? Your Opinion Matters.

Is Masturbation a Sin… according to the Bible and/or God’s Will?

Should you feel Guilt or Shame for Self-Gratification?

 

You can rest assured that “You Will Not Go Blind” from Masturbating. However, I would be interested in knowing whether you think that God Approves or Disapproves of self-gratification… and what is the basis of your opinion on the subject of masturbation.

Every human (and especially every Christian) has questions about Sins that are not specifically mentioned in God’s Word. While questions about the most Blatant Human Sexual Activities are explained in the Bible; such as…

  • Fornication
  • Adultery
  • Homosexuality
  • Beastiality

God’s Word does not explicitly name Masturbation as a Sin.

How this came up. Every now and then I like to have a question and answer session, instead of just preaching from the pulpit. It is a great opportunity to be able to dismiss many of the Fables, Myths and Inaccurate Notions that have wiggled their way into the mainstream thought processes of the average church member. I believe that every Pastor would do well in occasionally having such question and answer sessions for their members.

A couple of weeks ago, the question of Self-Pleasure (masturbation) was asked by one of the people in attendance, during one of our Q & A sessions. Is Masturbation a Sin? That’s what people want to know! Masturbation is not a topic that is widely discussed or taught in most churches even though the majority of Christians would like an answer to this question.

I tried to answer the question with as much finesse as possible, but since there were a number of children who were also in attendance that day, I did not feel comfortable going into any kind of detail on this subject and decided that I would dig deeper into this question on my blog. I am currently writing an article which I hope will dispel many of the wrong philosophies concerning Masturbation from a purely Biblical perspective. Since Masturbation is Not Specifically Discussed or Mentioned in the Bible, I thought it would be a great time to allow people to weigh in on this subject.

The Subject of Masturbation (Self-Pleasure, Self-Gratification) is very important to Discuss because of its effects on Individuals, Families and the Overall Christian Conscience. So, let me know your opinion on the subject of Masturbation along with specific Bible verses that explain your viewpoint. I will be monitoring all responses and will delete any comments that I deem to be inappropriate, so Please Keep it Clean!

Your Opinion Matters: Please Leave your Bible-Based Opinion or Response in the Comment Section of this Blog… Let me know What you Believe, and Why you Believe It… and I will post my opinion on this subject in a week or two, depending on how many people want to express their answer to this Question…

Is Masturbation a Sin?

Review of Mohawk’s Amazing Micro-Fiber Carpet Technology: Why are there Elephants on the Carpet?

Mohawk’s ‘Smartstrand’ Carpet Fiber undergoes Incredible Abuse in Recent Research and Testing at the Dallas Zoo. Amazing and Successful Zoo Carpet Challenge!

A Review of Mohawk’s SmartStrand Zoo Challenge:

Recently concluded Research and Testing of Mohawk’s New Smartstrand Fiber: Reviewing Micro-Fiber Technology for Carpet! The Zoo Challenge included the Following Elements:

  • Resilience is the ability of any carpet fiber to “spring back” from heavy, crushing foot-traffic. Smartstrand Fiber Technology has shown amazing ability not to crush, pack, matt, etc… The Superior Resilience of Mohawk’s New Fiber passes this Test with flying colors!
  • Stain Resistance is a carpets ability to withstand normal household stains. Mohawk had already given this fiber a lifetime stain warranty. In fact, it was the first carpet to ever be warranted for Pet Stains. However, researching Smartstrand took this test to the Limits of Clean-ability by allowing over 45,000 pounds of Elephant, a Black Rhino and three Camels to Actually Live On (and Dump On) this carpet… that’s the equivalent of subjecting their carpet to 650 ten year old children, before using the standard hot-water extraction method for carpet cleaning. This fantastic fiber also Totally Passed this Test!
  • Overall Durability in a carpet fiber accounts for Forces that would matt, crush, fuzz and resist any abrasive forces that a carpet could be subjected to. As you can imagine, most carpet fibers are only tested for Normal Household Durability… Mohawk has taken their Research to a Whole New Level of Carpet Endurance… and the Smartstrand Fiber Carpet Handily Passed a most Gruesome Test of Endurance.

Mohawk has taken Research and Testing their product to the absolute extremes of resilience, stain resistance and durability. This is absolute proof of Faith in your product. I have been in the carpet business for nearly forty years and I could never have imagined Any carpet fiber to withstand such overwhelming abuse. After taking extreme punishment from six African elephants, three camels and a black rhino, SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® (SmartStrand) carpet proves to be the New Ideal in durability, clean-ability and resiliency against any of the toughest carpet competitors.

A Mohawk spokesperson states that, “We used the same formula, at the same strength, available to every consumer who purchases Mohawk FloorCare Essentials from their local flooring provider”… which happens to be ‘Carpets –n- More’ if you live in the southern California High Desert Area near Barstow.

This Test lasted more than two weeks. And a combined total of 50,000 pounds of “wild” animals have done their absolute worst to Mohawk’s SmartStrand. This revolutionary micro-fiber technology in carpeting stood up to everything the animals could crush, drag, squirt, “Slop and Plop”! The incessant tracking in of mud and dirt and doing what it is that Big Animals can possibly do, on this average cut of SmartStrand Fiber Carpet!

This is what Sean Greene, the deputy director of education and interpretation at the Dallas Zoo, had to say… “Knowing these are truly wild animals, I thought there was no way this carpet could handle the wear and tear they would subject it to. “It’s amazing to see the SmartStrand bounce back to its original state knowing what it’s been put against for the past two weeks.” SmartStrand’s unique molecular structure is the key to its superior performance. The carpet performs similar to a spring, making the fiber more resilient, crush resistant and durable. The technology engineered in the carpet is guaranteed to provide amazing performance results.

“The carpet proved its resiliency after being hammered into the ground by a herd of elephants,” said David Duncan, Mohawk’s Vice President of Marketing. “No extra steps were needed to restore the carpet to its original lift.”

Using only hot-water extraction and Mohawk FloorCare Essentials Carpet Stain Remover, the dingy, dirty spots washed away…leaving the carpet looking like new.

“We used the same formula, at the same strength, available to every consumer who purchases Mohawk FloorCare Essentials from their local flooring provider,” said Duncan.

The public was also invited to take part in the challenge by experiencing the new Human Habitat exhibit housed in the reptile quarters of the zoo. Approximately 43,000 people interacted with four of Mohawk’s flooring elements – carpet, wood, laminate and ceramic. These flooring samples proved their durability to the crowds of children and adults that walked across the textiles on a daily basis, confirming how the surfaces can stand up to your own family’s wild-life… in your own home.

Review of Mohawk’s Amazing Micro-Fiber Carpet Technology: Why are there Elephants on the Carpet?

Asia Asked:”because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men”. What does that mean?

Asia Asked:”because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men”. What does that mean?

 

Whenever I see this verse of Scripture, I am immediately reminded of Christ’s Teachings in Matthew, chapter 5, which all seem to be Backward when considered through purely Human Logic. This is the “Sermon on the Mount” and this is where you’ll find all the “Blessed is…” verses. But the verses that I find most important to the question asked are the teachings of Jesus in verses 17 through 48.

There is a Wealth of Spiritual Teaching and Application in these verses and all of the teachings are based on “The Law” of God as Jesus explains it very clearly.

Since God’s Logic is nothing like our Human Logic, All of these vital teachings and instructions seem exactly backwards to us. In these verses we find Christ teaching that “Motive” is more important than “Action”… or more accurately stated; “Right Motives are the basis of Righteous Actions”.

As you read through these verses, you cannot help but be struck by the way that each lesson is exactly the opposite of Normal Human Reaction…

  • “Love your Enemies” (this goes against our Ego)
  • “Bless those that curse you” (if some call you a bad name… you would Really Love to hammer them back with a Greater Curse)
  • “Pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you” (praying for people who Use and Abuse us is the opposite of what we would really like to do to them)

We are not to follow Christ’s Teachings according to our own “wisdom”, “understanding” and Ego. But rather to Obey the Will of God by Trusting that when we do the Opposite of what seems Logical to our Human Mind… we will Actually Fulfill our Obligation as a “New Species” in Christ, and as True Children of our Heavenly Father…

Mat 5:45
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:

These are Hard Lessons because they go against everything we have been “taught by the World we live” in and “the Human Nature” that we were in Bondage to before Christ made us FREE! But now that we are Free to “live above the Law” by following the example and teachings of Christ… we are now the Bondservant of Righteousness.

What is a Bond-servant?

A Bond-servant is a person who volunteers to be a “slave” to someone else in exchange for the necessities of life, such as, housing, food and clothing, etc… or to be a willing slave for someone who pays off all our debts… so we can Start Over.

This is not a Slave as we know it today. Someone who is Sold into Slavery Against their own will, but rather, a Willing Commitment to serve someone until a debt is paid in full. And since Jesus Already Paid our Sin Debt, In Full… by His loving and willful death on the Cross as a Sacrifice of Atonement for our Sin… we should Willingly and Lovingly Serve Him as a Free Bond-Servant of Righteousness. (This may seem confusing to some Christians right now… but it becomes clearer and clearer as we Grow in the Spirit and in Faith).

How can I best represent that God’s Wisdom and Strength are so Far Superior to ours. His thinking and actions are so far beyond our comprehension that it’s ridiculous. So you may ask; How can I then Follow the Principle that is taught by this verse of Scripture? I am fond of teaching from the pulpit, something along these lines…

Whenever someone or something throws you into the Temptation toward anger, stress, fear, etc… or before you act on Impulse or Emotion, because of problems that life (and especially people) are doing to “upset your apple-cart” or “tip over your wagon”… STOP… for one moment, and listen… listen to the Spirit of God within you. Whatever you Feel Like Doing in Response to Whoever Provokes You… You will Most Likely Want to Do the Exact Opposite in order to do what is Right! Show your Enemies the Genuine Love and Forgiveness that Christ has shown to you and it will throw them “off balance”.

Your Weakness is your Selfishness and Ego… Turn that Over to God and He will do Great and Amazing Miracles with it. “For When we are weak, then are we made Strong”. Not by our own strength, but by the strength of God who Resides within us.

When you are tempted toward Evil, your Spirit will give you a little nudge. If you have doubts that whether what you are about to do is Wrong or Not… Don’t Do It! Instead, think of the exact opposite of what seems logical to you, and Do That Instead. Each time you do this, you will gain a clearer understanding of the way God thinks and acts.

“God can only Mend the Heart that is Truly Broken”.

 

May God Bless you Richly,

Reviewing the DIY ‘Home Safe’ Home Security System and Alarm with Auto Dialer (No More Monthly Fees)

Complete and Simple Do-It-Yourself Home, Business or Church DIY Security System with Auto Dialer…

Most Security Alarm Systems allow burglars the luxury of being long-gone… before anyone is notified of a crime. You can’t always be there to protect your home or business, but the ‘Home Safe’ System Can be. You’ll have complete peace of mind knowing that ‘Home Safe’ is On-Duty, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, for a One-Time Cost of less than forty dollars.

All the capabilities of ADT without the ongoing charges… Why pay hundreds of dollars, plus another $40 per month (or more) for a Home Security Service when the ‘Home Safe’ system is Always on the Job and Ready to Alert You in Real-Time… at a moment’s notice, without any monthly service fees?

 

Large Scale Security Technology with Smallest imaginable Foot-print! Surface-mount technology allows you to have the same Protection as larger systems costing thousands of dollars, in one Inexpensive and Self-Contained Unit. This system is also capable of storing and calling up to five preset phone numbers so that you’ll have the certainty of knowing when your home or business has been invaded. Set your system to call yourself, a Trusted Neighbor, and the Authorities… be Alerted by Phone, the very Instant that a Break-In occurs.

Many Expensive Home Alarm Systems can be Hacked or Disabled, But Not ‘Home Safe’. I had to learn this lesson “the hard way”. I paid over two thousand dollars for a whole-house security alarm system that could be easily Hacked by a Burglar. Imagine my surprise when I learned that my expensive security system was bypassed by a teenager with very little education or effort. Imagine my shock when I learned that my system could be disabled by an intruder who simply switched off the electric circuit-breaker that controlled my security system. Even after buying an Expensive Electrical Back-up Device, my security system was still Way Too Easy to Hack or be Rendered Useless by the most common of thieves. In this economy, I just can’t afford another break-in… and that is why I turned to ‘Home Safe’ for a Totally Tamper Proof System. No Wires… No Magnets… No Expensive Installation. The integrated system is triggered by a Single and Adjustable Infra-Red Sensor that will accurately distinguish the difference between your pet and a Real Human Intruder.

‘Home Safe’ is a Complete Home Security System that Instantly Alerts You, the Police, a Neighbor or Family member… when an Intruder, Burglar, or Anyone enters your Home without your permission. Easy to Install and Operate so there are also No Installation Charges, This Complete, yet Compact Home Security Technology Sounds the Alarm and Automatically Dials up to five preset phone numbers and you Never have to pay a dime in monthly service charges. Installation and programming is simple with the most basic tool-set (you may want to consider using a stud-finder for a more secure installation). I was able to secure all main entrances to my home by installing the unit near my hallway. You’ll want to consider placement of your unit on any wall at a height of five to six feet while you are waiting just a few of days for it to ship (and you will also want to pick up a standard nine volt battery for back-up power… can you believe that’s all you need? I spent over $140, just for back-up batteries, for my original home security system… What a Waste of Time and Money that thing was).

Secure Your Most Prized Possessions. Money, electronics and some furnishings can always be replaced, but Burglars are also Vandals, and they are not considerate of that which they Take or Destroy! When I consider the possessions that have been removed or vandalized in my home or business I am saddened most by the loss of my personal possessions that cannot be replaced, such as family keepsakes, photographs, antiques and hand-made one-of-a-kind items. These are personal “treasures”. They are Priceless to us because there is No Way to Replace them. Things that I also consider priceless are the Safety and Security of my Family. Peace of Mind can only be obtained when we know that we have done everything we can to Protect Our Personal Treasures.

The ‘Home Safe’ System is a Terrific Value. Once you have purchased a ‘Home Safe’ system for your home… you will most likely understand what a terrific value it is and (if you’re like me) you’ll also buy one for your business. The ‘Home Safe’ System is cheap enough to buy for any need. Protect your Home, business and Church for a fraction of the cost of traditional home security systems. With a price so low, you’ll also want to consider buying and giving a ‘Home Safe’ system to your children or grand-children. The ‘Home Safe’ system works great for any space you want to protect… from home security to dorm room safety. What value would you place on Providing Peace and Safety for your family and friends? Business owners: your ‘Home Safe’ system can also double as a Chime… to announce incoming customers (Just switch modes).

 

The ‘Home Safe’ Security System comes with everything you need (including built-in auto-dialer w/ 5 phone number presets) for Home, Business, Church, Office, Dorm room, etc…

Where ever you need BIG Security and Safety in a Small Integrated and Compact System… Special One-Time Very Affordable Price of Only $39.95.
