The whole point of this thread was about sexual relations WITHIN THE MARRIAGE COVENANT.........
masturbation is a solo act. It is something one does to/with self to reach that point of pleasure that GOD DESIGNED to be reached ONLY WITHIN MARRIAGE COVENANT WITH ONES SPOUSE.
It will be a very sad moment when those who say they are single, yet practice sexual acts before marriage, get into a marriage covenant expecting all the fireworks and bells and whistle ONLY to find out that they are unable to achieve such moments.
(for those who need help understanding what that means: when one spends time learning how to self please, and self gratify it becomes almost impossible to reach a point of pleasure/satisfaction with/by your spouse. )
the comment about rape was not let go, if you go back and reread what follows it you will see people trying to get back on subject BUT as soon as the rape issue is over SOMEONE
came along and decided to try and be funny with a comment that was less than that.
But AGAIN this thread is suppose to be about sexual relations within a MARRIAGE COVENANT....
not rape, masturbation, whether or not someone is going to hell, or pedophiles. There are PLENTY of other threads for those topics.
God not me who made our bodies and sexuality.
EXACTLY: God made our bodies and sexuality TO BE FULLFILLED WITHIN A MARRIAGE COVENANT WITH ONES SPOUSE ONLY (not by ones self, or with countless others)
