Think beyond lust.... :))

Will you marry somebody just to satisfy your lust? Definitely not!!!

Please read the whole chapter 1 corinthians 7:1-8

Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
I was not trying to say it is okay to fornicate but I don't think that that scripture is applicable to people who are not in relationships because they cannot use it. They are unlikely to be fornicating with others as well as unlikely to have someone to marry because they are not dating anyone. Only people who are in relationships but not yet married will consider this.

Ex. I am single and not dating anyone currently. If some one told me "it is better to marry than to burn" then I'd be like "okay, that's nice" because I have no one to burn with or marry, if that makes any sense.

And as far as lust goes that is what the thread is about. Masturbation, so getting married really has nothing to do with it anyway.

Where in the Bible does it say God wants us to sin just so we can be happy?

Masturbation is a sin, and God does not want anyone to sin. If you can't control your lust, Paul gave you the solution: get married. Paul did not say "If you are burning up with lust, masturbate." He said to find you a spouse. Masturbation is a sin because it is all about self, about pleasing your flesh. It's a perversion of what God intended to be between a man and woman.

If you are so controlled by your lust that you can't be happy unless you masturbate, then you have a serious problem. Repent and get right with God.
When arrogance in God's word takes over common sense. What a shame. Clearly it's not something to be donE in a addictive way. But think about this god made your nature and your body he also made men attracted to boobs and butts. Clearly they are assets use to attract men. Like muscles for women. Quit demonizing what is gods. So foolish and obtaining righteousness by telling others to get it together. Every humans trying their best. Let god be god and how about showing love instead of cultivating condemnation. God was disgusted more by pharisees than something of this nature. And it's not clear in scripture. It wouldn't be that hard to say not too touch yourself. You are allowed to check out women/men. God made us with personalised eyes and hair all the way too our toes. People try to demonize what is gods all the time while trying to please him.. haha sorcery=pharmacy. U ever take advil? You token a spell. Open your mind..more importantly your heart too gods children's processes. Do u want christians in bond age or in personalised freedom in jesus? Good day buddy.. also some people have serious conditions. God knows our hearts and he is infinity greater than his own word. God is god. U are no more clean than the next

Your answer hit the nail on the head. It is a sin. Before my husband and I started our walk with Christ he did do it on occasion and I know I surely did. But since then we have both stopped since we realized it takes away from our attraction to one another in our marriage bed.

NO. Masturbation is wrong and it's a sin. You need to set yourself free from that evil spirit which is causing you to do that. Command it to leave you in the NAME OF JESUS.

I highly doubt God cares whether you masturbate or not. Masturbation isn't sex. Pleasure for pleasure's sake isn't a sin. I don't know why people tend to focus on sexuality more than every other aspect of life and religion, but barring you aren't doing anything God did say is sinful, like lusting after someone in the way the Bible forbids, masturbating is just a ubiquitous, healthy bodily function. And I'd go so far as to say repressing the urge is a lot more harmful because it can lead to thoughts and actions that truly are sinful and harmful to others as well as yourself.

Masturbation is basically having sex with yourself, because you're sexually stimulating yourself by masturbating.
