"Masturbation poses the threat of lifelong bondage and hell."

Masturbation is wrong.
Some people once called masturbation "onanism" ("onanismo" in Spanish) to describe the results of it--Onan spilled his seed on the ground. The Webster's 1828 dictionary defines "onanism" as "self-pollution." (Please do not search for the definition of masturbation if you are unfamiliar with it because you may come across very great evil.) Masturbation is uncleanness and lasciviousness and often leads to incontinence (inability to control one's self, an habitual indulgence of lust) and an obsessive compulsive disorder.
Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness (ref. 1 Thessalonians 4:7).1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
I taught my daughter that our secrets (a Bible term) are secret. We use them for going to the bathroom, we clean them, and, if we marry, they are for our spouses and for making babies. Other than that, leave them alone.
Nobody wants to talk about masturbation (I don't) but I mention this extremely sensitive area because it is pervasive--people (young and old) are having big problems with it, they are out of control--I have heard from some of them. I've actually seen this practice taught in children's books to get them hooked on it early. Someone must cry out about this and not let it go on without sounding an alarm. I have read from a mother's own lips the devastating results of it in one small child not even four years old. The television, the school system, books, cartoons, movies, fairy stories, Christmas traditions, etc. ARE DANGEROUS. How many masturbation spirits have come into people's lives through these things (Santa Claus in the country where his tales originated is said to have an evil spirit riding with him. We wrote about that spirit on the website in the past, not knowing about it riding with Santa Claus)? Look at all the societal, physical, and mental disorders that we previously never had in this great country (tremendous rates of suicide, addiction, ADD, obesity, STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), compulsive disorders like masturbation, inability to control one's self, profligacy (a vicious life that has abandoned what is right), etc.). They just grow in number and severity.
Like sorcery and enchantments, the various assaults (television "programming", etc.) work to bewitch the people so that the people are spiritually and mentally influenced, overwhelmed, overcome, weakened, brought into bondage, and deceived but do not fully realize it. The people think that they are doing okay, but they are not. That is the nature of deception--believing what is not true, and not believing what is true. Yes, these things are dangerous, BUT WHAT IS REALLY DANGEROUS IS NOT BEING SAVED AND NOT BEING LED BY GOD'S WORD. Without the word of God, the Authorized King James Bible, people have no guide to direct them through this life and these perils that they find within themselves and outside of themselves. The people are in the dark, stumbling about, going from iniquity to iniquity and making many errors as they are led about by the flesh, the devil, and the world. What a woeful and dangerous position to be in.
People need to REPENT of their sins and BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ--his death, burial, and resurrection. They need to believe in the blood of Jesus that was shed for the remission (forgiveness) of their sins. The blood of Jesus paid for our sins and by his resurrection we are raised to a new holy life. People who are saved can walk at liberty and be free from all these filthy traps and snares that have been set all over the world.
By God's grace, Christians entangled in masturbation can
- read God's word,
- and walk away from that evil habit BY GOD'S GRACE* AS THEY
- do good,
- WORK--DOING THINGS FOR THEMSELVES (making homecooked meals, building, sewing, gardening, making what they need, etc.--this helps the mind and body. Modern man sits around with "nothing" to do when there is something to do, he just lets others do it for him. The Bible talks a lot about work and about slothfulness (e.g. 1 Thessalonians 4:11; Proverbs 12:24). Work and teach your children to work alongside of you.)
- and frankly walk away from it and from all worldliness like television and start living a useful, clean, and holy life.
*WHEN YOU START DOING RIGHT AND PUTTING BOUNDS ON YOURSELF AND YOUR ACTIVITIES (like forsaking television), GOD'S GRACE COMES IN AND TAKES CARE OF THAT INVISIBLE PART AND YOU LOOK UP ONE DAY AND FIND YOURSELF DELIVERED. NEVER ACCEPT SIN. IF YOU DO WRONG, REPENT AND GO FORWARD, KEEP PRAYING AND READING AND OBEYING GOD'S WORD AND WORKING DOING GOOD THINGS. MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR LIFE--STOP WATCHING TELEVISION AND READING THINGS THAT ARE EVIL. STOP BAD HABITS, RELATIONSHIPS, ETC. KNOW WHAT CAUSES YOUR PROBLEMS AND MAKE A STRATEGY AGAINST IT.

PROTECTION: PROTECT YOUR EYES, EARS, HEART.
MALES PROTECT YOUR LOINS; FEMALES PROTECT YOUR WOMBS.
Somebody rended us away from our natural propensity for self-preservation and self-protection and lured this nation into incessant whoredom. It is time to get self-protection back and not let this enemy do to our children what it did to us. Everything is all broken down and in ruins and we walk through the rubble trying to paste together an existence. The following is excerpted from the Jesus-is-Lord.com index page--
Repent and save yourselves from this untoward generation.
- Protect your eyes and your ears and your heart from the television and other wicked devices. They blaspheme God and are designed to weaken and corrupt you. That is why America has become a nation of bastard children--through the temptation of the television. A man has three daughters, all three are slain and not one makes it to a marriage bed untainted. He has a son who has abused himself with whoredom and been mentally corrupted by whoremonger movies and whorish women.
- Males, protect your loins.
- Females, protect your wombs.
- Do not abuse yourself with mankind--thereby avoiding the creepy diseases (e.g. syphilis and herpes, warts, and cankers) and plagues (e.g., AIDS) and parasites and bugs (e.g., crabs) that are infesting the disobedient world both physically and mentally (e.g., depression, compulsive disorders, suicidal and homicidal tendencies, panic attacks, child abuse, etc.). [Note: If someone has abused you, you can call on the name of Jesus and be saved and helped. You are not a product of your abuse, you are your own person, even if you never knew it. What somebody did to you was the wickedness that they did; their actions are not you. You are a person separate and distinct from any vicious acts that may have been perpetrated upon you (whether physical, verbal, etc.). My real "me" was buried for so long under my personal response to "socialization" that I only recently understood that my life is not just a series of accidents and incidents and that I am a person separate from what is happening outside of me--this does not happen to everyone, but I believe that in America it may happen to many.]
The false church will tell you that you can do whatever you want to and that the Lord Jesus will accept you, but the scriptures quickly show that they are liars. If Jesus Christ is not the Lord and Master of your life, he is NOT your Saviour. The Lord Jesus helps his people to overcome sin as they obey his word and mortify the deeds of the body--you have to put bounds on yourself and, as you do, the grace of God comes in and takes care of that invisible part and a person looks up and finds himself delivered. If you have already been through the ringer having messed over people and they have messed over you, you can still be free once you repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and serve him by obeying his word. By his grace, he will change your very desires as you obey his word and deny the filth of this world.
