God bless your relationship with your future spouse.
God bless your relationship with your actual spouse.
If you control yourself while you are celibate,
chances are that you won’t cheat him / her even in your thoughts.
CONSIDER THAT TO LUST AT A WOMAN / MAN IN YOUR HEART AND MASTURBATE IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS GOING TO THE WHOREHOUSE TO THE EXCEPTION THAT THE WHOREHOUSE IS NOT FREE BUT YOU DID SLEEP WITH THAT WOMAN / MAN IN YOUR HEART
THE PRACTICE OF CHASTITY IS NOT ENOUGH EVEN SOME PAGAN MONKS ARE CAPABLE OF ACCOMPLISHING THAT THE PRACTICE OF SEXUAL PURITY IS WHAT IS REQUIRED FLEE FORNICATON DON’T BE CONFORMED TO THIS EVIL WORLD BY ACTING THE SAME WHICH MEANS TO FLEE PORNEIA, WHICH INCLUDES ALL KINDS OF SEXUAL IMPURITY.
and they eventually become demon possessed. Fornication is porneia in greek, which includes sexual impurity. As singles, it is not good enough to be chaste (meaning not sleeping with anyone) because even few monks and priests can accomplish that. I even met a man who was my age and was virgin. Chastity is not enough but we are called to sexual purity and this starts in the heart / thoughts. Like Jesus said, if a man looks at a woman and lusts at her, he commits adultery so that means that I am right saying what I just declared that chastity is not enough and that is why it is not true that only adultery is solid ground for divorce but fornication because fornication porneia leads in hell and this includes impures thoughts that could lead to masturbation and most definitively masturbation is literal self abuse.
Bottom line is that we are called to be sexually pure because otherwise, we end up in hell.
p.s. for the internet, the way to start is get a good pop up blocker so you won’t have stupid ads of all kinds popping up.
YOUR SOUL IS AT STAKE IF YOU DO PRACTICE SEXUAL IMMORALITY DON’T FOOL YOURSELF AT LEAST !!!
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Jesus never masturbate even one time, (therefore he was a real virgin because the word virgin means untouched) otherwise we would all be going in hell.
Why would He preach to not look at a woman to lust at her and tell that is adultery if He was doing it himself? It’s because he never lust at a woman. No lust, no acting out.
Ph. 4: 8-13
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoeuer things are true, whatsoeuer things are honest, whatsoeuer things are iust, whatsoeuer things are pure, whatsoeuer things are louely, whatsoeuer things are of good report: if there bee any vertue, and if there bee any praise, thinke on these things:
9 Those things which ye haue both learned and receiued, and heard, and seene in mee, doe: and the God of peace shall be with you.
10 But I reioyced in the Lorde greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished againe, wherein yee were also carefull, but ye lacked opportunitie.
11 Not that I speake in respect of want: for I haue learned in whatsoeuer state I am, therewith to bee content.
12 I know both how to bee abased, and I knowe how to abound: euerie where, and in all things I am instructed, both to bee full, and to bee hungrie, both to abound, and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth me.
