Hi, I am new here. I need help from Christians.... the worldly view on this is not the truth.

I have a problem, I am a computer geek which feels at home at the PC I have been a Christian for a very long time and for my whole life i have struggled with masturbation. This is hard for me to talk about, but my from the time I was a we lad i have screwed up. I am a Christian, meaning i believe Jesus died on the cross for my sins, and i feel guilt when i masturbate... I feel stupid coming to this forum and asking for help...

I really need someones help, recently i was browsing the internet at sites that don't have bad content, and was browsing a forum, I saw a picture that aroused me... i continued to look and lust after it. I still was continuing to screw up praying to God to forgive me, but each day after i would continue to do that exact same thing... but its getting worse, now i am looking at the g00gle search page and typing stuff that will bring *bad* pictures up... I KNOW ITS WRONG I SHOULDN'T LOOK.... i cant control it, I ask for forgiveness and then i feel intimate with God, and the next day I frickin' do it again... I am so tired of this, no matter what i do, i end up masturbating and looking at things i shouldn't, I Want to STOP---> I cant control it and i need guidance from a Christian which can guide me through the Bible and help me.... I am desperate, i am so tired of sinning, confessing, freaking doing it again thinking (i'll be forgiven... this chance may only come once... or I just cant control it) I pray to God through His Son and ask forgiveness, but i dont understand why I continue to FAIL THE FREAKING NEXT DAY, i mean everything i read in the Bible that is against it is just gone and i do it.... there is a little voice, very little voice telling me i shouldn't... but a bigger voice says "this may be the only time something like this comes along" or it says "hey, if I do it this time, i should be able to hold off" i cant even control myself for more than 1 week--- i am very embarrassed about this

I need serious prayer and guidance... i need accountability---->

I CANT CONTROL MYSELF my lust, my self-pleasuring, and my adultery *i dont have a wife, so i dont know exactly what looking at bad pictures would be, but i know its bad*

Someone please, please help me out... I need help

I am righting this, because i have gone to far... i cant control it please, please pray for me

Right now i am crying, and feel so depressed.... and you know what will end up happening tomorrow, i will fail again, and again, and again...

i don't even know why God has me on earth, all i do is freaking screw it up... please, please someone help me :cry: :cry:

I'm proud of you for taking the courage to stand up against yourself.

Don't be embarassed, as I'm sure most people here are similar to you in one way or another.

I have a way for you to purify yourself and to be under God's guidance.

You see, when you can't control your action, it's hard to prevent the wrong action from occuring.

You must be able to control your own actions, to do that you have to be able to withstand temptation.

What is the biggest temptation in this world?







FOOD!!

We've been living off Food since before we realize it.

So I suggest you go on a fasting, for 3-4 weeks without food, only liquid. Then once you are able to go through fasting, you should be able to conquer the problems you are experiencing right now.

As this type of temptation you're going through is not really the biggest temptation of modern life, for some people it is, for other's it's nothing. But one thing is for sure, it's not the most important thing in our society today.

So if you can withstand the temptation of food, you should have no problem withstanding sexual temptation.


Let me know how it goes. :)

Err... no. While I'm agreeable to fasting, I believe fasting for 4 weeks would be a dangerous thing to do—especially to someone just going to do so at their own whim.

Fasting for 3-4 weeks is not as dangerous as it seems.

If you look deeply into the subject, you'll realize that fasting actually improves your health as it eliminate the toxin build up in your body.

Its a good idea to fast from a debatable habit such as mastubation, smoking etc - just to prove that you are not a slave to it. That may be more difficult for some people as compared to food.
Maranatha!
