Why is it so bad to masturbate? That's what I genuinely want to know and it's not like I was watching porn one day and this just popped into my mind. No, I got a christian book and it said that if you are obsessed with pornography and such you should not date, but why?
It's not like you're hurting anyone, you're not having sex before your married, so why is it a sin?

Also, I was too afraid to ask a preacher or some other religious leader. So, now I turn to the wonders of anonymously posting on the internet! YAY!

I don't know if this was serious or not but I'm taking it as serious. If they think sperm is babies then sex even during marriage because thousands of babies die just so one baby can be born. Come on God, that's just depressing.

Well before I begin, can I ask if you are a Christian?

That's really hard to define because I've always grown up with the Christian belief so in that respect yes. However, I've had a more open approach to many things. Not the ethical code--those are good--but other things. Basically, yes and no.

Define your "Christian Beliefs". The reason I ask is because from experience, I've seen an overwhelming dichotomy between Christians and Non-Christians over the topic of Masturbation/Porn. It's rather shocking really.

Quick play by play
1. One specific incarnation of God that those present at the times were most willing to accept him as. He, or his consciousness, was also represented in different incarnations or representations in different religions--the many Gods in Hinduism, Krishna, and the actual Buddah.

2. There are many pathways to God.

3. Samsara is real, but reliving your life is like the hell that Christians speak of and escaping it is that enlightenment or heaven.

Well now I can speak candidly. As a person who reads and studies the Bible and Christendom, there is no way I can genuinely say you are a Christian. I am not making an ignorant judgement call. I am simply reading your response, comparing it to the Gospel (Central to Christianity) and deducing that based on what you just told me, there is no way you are indeed a Christian.

You can't mold various beliefs and fashion them into your own Theology and claim that they are Christian beliefs when they aren't. It's basically a lie. sad

But on a positive note, at least now you know. The word "Christian" originated in Greek, being "Christianos", and simply means, "A follower of Christ." It is not an accumulation of various beliefs systems, but rather only that of Jesus Christ.

If you are interested in understanding what it might mean to be a Christian, then please PM me. I will not go further in discussing the original topic because this is much more important. I would even argue that you might not fully understand their implications with out being one yourself. Most don't...
For me personally, it matters if the lust is controlling me or if I'm controlling the lust. If someone is masturbating and watching porn because they feel lonely, then that isn't a healthy thing. But if it is just, err, "scratching the itch", then sure go on xD

That's just how I apply things to myself :3

If it's a sin, then everyone is guilty. Guess we're all sinners. Fortunately, someone died for our sins, so we should be in the clear.

And for those that don't, there is no sin. The problem solves itself. Can't judge those who haven't sinned!
Porn can be an addiction, whether or not you think its bad. Addictions tend to make it hard for people to live their life (it clouds most aspects of time, finances, and other resources).

Porn devalues sex, and makes it seem like a more common thing. Some people believe this to be bad, rather than an expression of the human body.

Porn changes what the image of the opposite sex we initially had, whether or not we are aware of it (and whether or not it is good or bad). Think what you may, but porn can lead to thinking that relationships should be different in a way. Its kinda like Hollywood; it creates unrealistic standards which not everyone can tell is unrealistic.

Porn devalues sex,

I disagree wholeheartedly. Porn is a poor substitute for actual sex in just about everybody I've come across. If anything it will bring actual sex to the forefront of the mind more often, and make sex with another person more valuable. This on top of the educational value of knowing your own stamina, knowing what can possibly please your partner, and inventive new positions and roleplays to try out.

Porn can be an addiction,
So can cleaning, working, and exercising.
