    What are you talking about? No one is telling me to stop masturbating EXCEPT myself. I know it's a natural occurence. I just dont want it to control me the way it does. I live what I belive to be a unhealthy lifestyle because I'm addicted to it. I thought this thread was supposed to be safe? The way you talk sounds hostile towards the Catholic church.
    sometimes when noones home i enjoy seperating m&m's into colour groups and pretending they're little villages of people with their own economic and social problems, and then i try to fix them thru free trade agreements and other diplomatic measures

    I am actually pretty hostile towards the Catholic church. My above post is just one reason. You're 18 and unless you're physically hurting yourself, there's nothing wrong with what you're doing. Every normal 18 year old boy does it, the ones who didn't are lying about not doing it.

    Anything done to excess can be harmful. The whole idea isn't that something is wrong just that people need to have some self-control. I mean bodybuilding is the perfect example, eating is natural and trying to force yourself to stop will cause problems. However having control over what you eat and how often has immediate positive results, while eating whatever whenever has it's own negative results.

    Bottomline is the basis of happiness does not come from excess, it does not come from doing whatever you want. It also does not come from repressing every feeling. It does come from having some self control in our lifes.

    You can, and need to find a ground that you know you are suppose to stand on.. hence, stand your ground, this is the place where you know everything is as it should be for you. If you stand in a place where you know in your heart things are wrong, most things around you will never be right.

    Rule number one, never work at being what another man defines as being "honorable", Honorable is is being true to what you know and and doing what you know is right for you..

    lol

    back in college one of my roommates was in class (a Bible class of some sort) and someone was having a discussion on the morality of sorts regarding masturbation (or as we call it, fapping). so at some point, one kid got so offended that he declared he had never fapped once, which sent the extremely conservative, reformed presby, room into hysterics. this kid stuck with his story until another student told him that God doesnt like liars. rofl, the kid was so embarassed

    I'm sorry you harbor so much resentment towards the Catholic church.

    Just because I'm not hurting physically doesn't mean I don't suffer. You don't quite understand what I'm saying. I hurt emotionally because I'm not in control at ALL. Masturbating takes a hold on me that is really hard for me to break. I don't think God intends for any human being to masturbate every day to women who are obviously more broken than I am.

    I don't know why you keep bringing up the point about EVERY boy doing it. I understand that, I'm not naive. I know it's a natural process.

    I don't understand what you are saying. How do broken women have anything to do with your problem? Do you feel guilty about the act itself or with your fantasies? I seriously don't understand what you said.

    That's what I thought but there's a difference in addiction to porn and addiction to masturbation. There can be a connecton, of course.

    It really does hurt to feel so out of control. I have read some articles regarding this and it was interesting that a lot of times it goes beyond healthy and is the result of other issues. One example was of a man that was raised in a very repressed home. The father and mother never showed affection of a sexual nature, sex was never discussed or at best very brief and uncomfortably. Sex was also never joked about.

    When the man was a young teen he started masturbating and felt terrible guilt, instead of being able to discuss it with his parents he felt great shame. The shame made this normal part of growing up become a fixation and at the point the story was at he was a grown marrried man that was still struggling.

    I guess the point of that is finding a councelor that could help you work through it, would not recommend one that has a religious agenda.

    On the short term, just try cutting back, if it's everyday try stopping one day a week. Or try this get a small backpack and fill it with rocks. Symbolic of the baggage this makes you feel like you are carrying around. Each day you make it without masturbating then take a rock out. It will be a visual reminder that you are gaining control. Be happy with any progress and exspect this isn't something you have to be perfect in. Don't put rocks back in for days that you backslide, just watch the pile of rocks building up and the backpack emptying and be happy with the progress.

    Life isn't about being perfect, it's about the hike, keep climbing, learning and growing. Understand that if one thing doesn't work well try something else. Learn to trust what your heart tells you. Also if that doesn't work try adding discipline in other areas like getting up on time, not missing workouts. These are all law of Moses stuff, but you have to start at where you are, you have to have some control on the physical before you can move on to the spiritual. Sorry to ramble.
    You can, and need to find a ground that you know you are suppose to stand on.. hence, stand your ground, this is the place where you know everything is as it should be for you. If you stand in a place where you know in your heart things are wrong, most things around you will never be right.

    Rule number one, never work at being what another man defines as being "honorable", Honorable is is being true to what you know and and doing what you know is right for you..

    Maybe you're missing my point, it's like going to the bathroom. You don't need to control that and you don't feel bad for not controlling it. It's religious dogma that makes you feel bad. It will get better as you age or if you get a girlfriend. You're 18 and your body doesn't care what God thinks, it wants to reproduce.

    Sorry to have confused you man. I'm just distraught and I don't think too clearly these days. The reason I came to this thread was because I thought I could turn to and confide in my Christian brothers and get some helpful ideas.

    You're right, I have no place to judge how broken those people are. I was just saying that from what I've seen from interviews with porn stars and prostitutes what kind of background they come from and for most of them, they definitely did not have the happiest childhoods.
    sometimes when noones home i enjoy seperating m&m's into colour groups and pretending they're little villages of people with their own economic and social problems, and then i try to fix them thru free trade agreements and other diplomatic measures

    I don't understand your foundation of saying it's OK to do because it's "natural".

    It's natural for a murderer to kill, but that in no way makes it "OK" to do. It's natural to have sexual tendencies, but that doesn't mean i should have sex with anything that i can and defy god's tools for us to procreate.

    It is not natural to masturbate, it is natural to impregnate. And to further the existence of the human race. Christians should not satisfy the flesh in a unnatural way to satisfy their own needs.

    Op should surround himself around fellow Christians that would help him ignore the urges of 18 year old hormones.

    I had the same problem when i was 18 and i had just been born again at the time. It was a major conflict, but i surrounded myself with friends that cared and not around things that would lead me back to temptation. I made mistakes and slipped up from time to time, but what can i say. I'm a sinner.
    "Don't be envious when the grass is greener on the other side because you don't know how much crap it took to fertilize that ground.�

    Are you ready? "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.� (John 8:24).

    ALRIGHT EVERYONE!!!

    I don't read the thread for a few days and I come back to all this... I don't even have time to reply to OnTop.... Either way, can we drop the masturbation topic??? I think a few members have already suggested it. And a female member was on here trying to introduce herself, or say hi, and I doubt this is what a Christian female wants to read about...

    I am proposing (and in fact pleading, I'd really appreciate) if we could drop the subject. Arguing over this could go in circles forever. And I think it really brings us into some unedifying jokes and comments.

    I don't want to leave anyone seeking questions high and dry, so if you want to hear a solid Christian view on the subject, PM me. I wrote a pretty detailed response earlier. And I can even explain a few other views held by Christians which are different from my own. If you want to hear some logical (but in my opinion, not biblical) views that are PRO, send Harbinger a PM... Otherwise, lets get over it. For the sake of a better conversation, and for the sake of what this thread is supposed to be fore.


    What would I give to be a moderator for this thread...


    P.s.-GottaBeHUGE- If you look back toward the beginning of this conversation, I gave a think I gave a pretty clear description of a Christian stance on this issue. Like I said above, if you PM me, I'll answer any questions you have and I can even give you a few opinions.

    I have to disagree a little. Granted, we don't need crude comments. We have to face all sorts of issues in our lives. Some of them, like masturbation, might be difficult to discuss. If a young Christian man is stuggling with these issues, it could be extremely difficult to discuss it with a pastor, father, brother or other real person. Perhaps the anonymity of internet Christians is exactly what he needs.

    Sure, some topics can make us uncomfortable, myself included. If someone is sincerely reaching out for Christian help, I don't think it should be denied because the topic makes me uncomfortable.

    I think it's admirable that you're willing to to offer advice. The only problem is that for every issue Christians are concerned about, there are just as many differing opinions as there are Christians. That's why I feel the need to answer a lot of these questions. While I'm not going to tell anyone it's OK to kill steal and lead a life of wreckless abandon, I do think I offer dogma free alternative.
