Masturbation Is Not a Sin if You’re a Christian

Masturbation Is Not a Sin

Masturbation is not a sin if…

  • It glorifies God
  • You do it with no pornographic thoughts and lustful intent
  • The Holy Spirit works you to do it

Matthew 5:27–28, KJV

“27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 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.”

Romans 14:23, KJV

“23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.”

1 Corinthians 10:31, KJV

31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 6:19–20, KJV

“9 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Galatians 5:22–23, KJV

“22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

Philippians 2:13, KJV

“13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”

Galatians 5:16–17, KJV

“16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”

Genesis 38:9–10, KJV

“9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. 10 And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew him also.”

This scripture says wasting your seed (semen) is not a sin. God put Onan to death for refusing to provide an heir for his deceased brother; Onan rebelled God’s command.

Yes, it is if…

  • It does not glorify God
  • You do it with pornographic thoughts and lustful intent
  • The Holy Spirit does not work you to do it

Christians glorify God. We’ve the mind of Christ, not pornography and lust. And it’s God which worketh in us both to will and to do of his good pleasure. So, we don’t masturbate, per our nature in Christ.

You’re blessed.
