Re: Self Gratification

No, I actually wasn't asking either of those questions, but your response answered my question.

A sin is a sin.

So, if one is not lusting while masturbating, then it is not considered a sin?

That makes sense

Thanks

Re: Self Gratification

This is my concern.

If lust is a sin, and people lust all the time, even while sitting at their desk working, then I would assume that masturbation is no worse than that, right? (If one were lusting about another at the time)

This is a question that I have been pondering for some time.

Self Gratification

I am trying to determine if masturbation is truly a sin, or not. There is no mention of it in the bible, and I get conflicting answers from the Internet.

If a person is abstinent, is masturbation wrong?

What are your thoughts?

Thanks,

Re: Marijuana vs Pharmaceuticals

Phillip, I am not sure if you understood my question, but I can see that your viewpoint is quite similar to those in the insurance and medical profession, who do not want to see their profits diminished by an alternative resource, that will basically remove them from the process. Point in case, take...

Re: Marijuana vs Pharmaceuticals

It has been used without a prescription for thousands of years. There has not been one reported incident of overdose, or death from it's use. So I am not so sure I want the insurance companies, Big Pharma, and the govt, controlling it. All they want is to profit from it. Greed is bad... Sorry to hea...

Also all plants etc meant to be consumed?
What about poisonous ones?

How do you think a poison plants were discovered? Someone, or something either ate it, touched it, or inhaled it, in order to experience the effect. That is how early man learned what is what.

Re: Marijuana vs Pharmaceuticals

My main reason for writing this post, was to try and get some serious responses to an issue that I know a lot people struggle with. My personal understanding of what God meant, was that things of the earth (plants, fruit, trees, etc) that he created, are good for us, and from all of the historical d...

Marijuana vs Pharmaceuticals

Hello, I recently read several articles/posts that indicate using marijuana was unacceptable by God. These articles made no mention on the use of pharmaceutical drugs. So I thought I would delve into this topic a deeper. God said that all plants, seeds, trees, flowers, were put on this earth for the...
