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?
