already no this will Not be the popular answer but I call it for what it is
agree or disagree that is my 2 pennies
I still AM an evangelical Christian. I've never heard nor seen the Bible directly discuss Masturbation (as in "never"). It does talk about sexual impurity, but I think MB and sexual impurity have precious little to do with each other....no....nothing to do with each other.
We were sinned against and damaged. Though our sex-switch was turned-on prematurely or not, MB is an element of life. Its a body-life element.
I KNOW for a fact that if some younger perpetrators knew they could MB their way out of dramatically-strong urges, some CSA would never take place.
Finally, dropping the "SIN
" bomb/label upon someone seeking answers is not answering anything. Its bombing him with a judgement. Judging the item a survivor is seeking help with is not helping. Its tossing a grenade and ducking-down.
Don't do that here please. Its fully non-constructive to God's wishes. it smacks of police enforcement and we are NOT called to be God's earthly enforcers. "SIN"
does not help the wounded do diddly or understand squat. It just comes-off as arrogant Christian Crap.
The truths of the bible are always truth, but this topic is not even defined therein.
