Welcome to #SoulTies 28. In this this session, we examine the subject of Masturbation. We do a self examination to see how masturbation sits with our conscience as New Testament believers. This is the last of a 3-part series on Masturbation. We also examine 2 addictive instances of masturbation. There is a bonus tweet cast on how to be free from masturbation. Please watch out for it in #SoulTies 29

#SoulTies 28 starts shortly.
- Is Masturbation a Sin? (Part 3). If you missed (Part 2), please check my tweets from 7:00pm yesterday.
- I want to state that we are not here to condemn anyone or stigmatise anyone who has repeatedly fallen into sin due to #SoulTies
- We are here to expose #SoulTies as the works of the enemy that the blood of Jesus has been shed to purge us from.
- I also want to say that this isn’t a motivational broadcast but this is the gospel of Jesus Christ. #SoulTies
- We are looking at this from the standard of the Word of God and no less. No compromise. #SoulTies
- The flesh finds the Word and the Spirit of God unbearable but we cannot dilute the message. #SoulTies

- Today, we are discussing masturbation. is it a sin or not? Should the Christian indulge in it or not? #SoulTies
- This broadcast is not being served to everyone but spirit-filled Christians interested in walking victoriously with God. #SoulTies
- Let’s get into business. Is Masturbation a sin or not? #SoulTies (Part 3)
- Yesterday, we stopped at examining various arguments by bible scholars that endorse masturbation as acceptable. #SoulTies
- Today we continue by doing some self examination on ourselves to see how the practice of masturbation fits in. #SoulTies
- But before we do that, I want to quickly make 7 statements to anyone currently involved in masturbation. #SoulTies
- (1) Believer or not, the love God has for you is not any less because you masturbate. God loves you the same. #SoulTies
- (2) Masturbation does not erase your name from the book of life. Not masturbating doesn’t put your name in either. #SoulTies
- (3) Masturbation does not affect the composition of God. It only affects you and your spiritual effectiveness. #SoulTies
- (4) No one has a right to make you feel inferior because you masturbate, many of us did it before but we won’t tell. #SoulTies
- (5) Everyone else has some other weak area that may not be masturbation, that we seek grace to help for. #SoulTies
- (6) If you now see the need to be rid of the addiction to masturbation, we will go through a few bible steps. #SoulTies
- (7) There’s power available in God’s Word to crush any addiction we are facing in our privacy, without telling the church. #SoulTies
- Now let’s start our self examination by reading 1 John 3:20-22 #SoulTies
- 1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. #SoulTies
- 1 John 3:21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. #SoulTies
- 1 John 3:22a And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, #SoulTies
- 1 John 3:22b and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. #SoulTies
- There’s a part of us called the conscience. Our conscience is that part of our heart that condemns or excuses us. #SoulTies
- Our conscience is the traffic light inside us that turns RED or GREEN when we do OR are about to do stuff. #SoulTies
- If you are a tongue-talking and spirit-filled believer who practices masturbation, I want to ask a question in the next tweet. #SoulTies
- Read your bible, then pray in tongues for 10 minutes each. Then think of masturbation. Does your heart feel right to do it? #SoulTies
- Do you see a GREEN light or a RED light deep inside you? Do you feel like worshipping Jesus just after masturbating? #SoulTies
- After watching porn & then treating urself to an orgy of masturbation, do u feel like just worshipping Jesus 4 a good time? #SoulTies
- Don’t tell me your answers, please just keep them to yourself because there’s a jury out here on twitter. #SoulTies
- Please permit me to share these 2 uncomfortable examples of masturbation I once read about on twitter. #SoulTies
- D first was reported by a UK based female follower of mine. She works in an office where d toilet is shared by both sexes. #SoulTies
- She was at d top of a queue waiting to use the toilet. The toilet indicated UNOCCUPIED and she then proceeded to enter. #SoulTies
- There was a male colleague in the toilet masturbating himself during work hours & had forgotten to even lock the door. #SoulTies
- Anything you hide in the toilet to do during office hours in secret and forget to lock the door behind you is an ADDICTION. #SoulTies
- The second example was shared by another female follower about a dude sitting next to her on a bus in South London. #SoulTies
- This guy unveiled his ‘equipment’ and started masturbating himself completely oblivious of the lady next to him. #SoulTies
- These two examples prove to me that what would have started as ‘harmless’ could rapidly turn to a dangerous addiction. #SoulTies
- For d non-believer, there is this deceptive feeling that dangerous things can be consumed as long as they aren’t in excess. #SoulTies
- However, the instructions to believers on such matters differ from this deceptive mindset. Let us examine a few scriptures. #SoulTies
- 1 Cor 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; … #SoulTies Flee not negotiate.
- 2 Tim 2:22 Flee also youthful lusts:but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, .. Masturbation is a youthful lust #SoulTies
- 1 Thess 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. #SoulTies If it has the potential for evil, we are advised to abstain. #SoulTies
- Based on these 3 scriptures, MASTURBATION is not a spiritually safe practice you should engage in as a believer. #SoulTies
- How do we then solve the “lack of sex” problem that makes bible scholars justify masturbation as a good practice? #SoulTies
- Ps 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. #SoulTies
- Ps 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. #SoulTies
- The WORD of GOD is the ULTIMATE and VALID answer to our sex problems in Christianity, not fleshly tools. #SoulTies
- I don’t promise that u won’t stumble on the way but you’ll get there. I’ll do a Masturbation Part 4 on how u can be free. #SoulTies
