Soul Ties 26 – Masturbation 1

Welcome to #SoulTies 26. In this this session, we examine the subject of Masturbation? Is it right or wrong? We start by examining the Old Testament to see if God endorsed it or outlawed it. This is the 1st of a 3-part series on Masturbation. Please don’t miss #SoulTies 27 & 28.

#SoulTies 26 starts shortly.

  1. Is Masturbation a Sin? (Part 1)
  2. I want to state that we are not here to condemn anyone or stigmatize anyone who has repeatedly fallen into sin due to #SoulTies
  3. We are here to expose #SoulTies as the works of the enemy that the blood of Jesus has been shed to purge us from.
  4. I also want to say that this isn’t a motivational broadcast but this is the gospel of Jesus Christ. #SoulTies
  5. We are looking at this from the standard of the Word of God and no less. No compromise. #SoulTies
  6. The flesh finds the Word and the Spirit of God unbearable but we cannot dilute the message. #SoulTies
  7. Please take time off to LIKE our Facebook page using this link http://dld.bz/cU2zp #SoulTies
  8. Please join our FaceBook group here as well to receive timely updates about our activities. http://dld.bz/cU4fR #SoulTies
  9. Going forward, we’ll be hosting more interactive #SoulTies hangouts and reducing the frequency of the tweets.
  10. So please be sure to hook up with me on Google+ for the hangouts. https://plus.google.com/+OlusolaAdio #SoulTies
  11. In these #SoulTies hangouts, there’ll be room for people to ask questions about what we have been learning.
  12. I also have a BBM pin dedicated to #SoulTies; 7c5bbd57 so you can hook up on BBM at your earliest convenience.
  13. Please visit our new blog page to access audio downloads of the #SoulTies tweets. http://dld.bz/dgwCB
  14. Please follow @SoulTiesTweets an account dedicated solely to #SoulTies just for you to read #SoulTies stuff. Kindly RT.
  15. I interact a lot on my personal account @solaadio so if you want to avoid my constant sparring, @SoulTiesTweets is better. #SoulTies
  16. But if u choose to stay with @solaadio, u miss nothing. All my #SoulTies tweets feed into @solaadio, @SoulTiesTweets & @charisgrays
  17. Today, we are discussing masturbation. is it a sin or not? Should the Christian indulge in it or not? #SoulTies
  18. This broadcast is not being served to everyone but spirit-filled Christians interested in walking victoriously with God. #SoulTies
  19. This broadcast is not being served as a commandment to anyone here so it can be ignored if it doesn’t go down well with u. #SoulTies
  20. Let’s get into business. Is Masturbation a sin or not? #SoulTies
  21. I would define masturbation as d act of stimulating ur sexual organ till u reach excitation, plateau, ejaculation or orgasm. #SoulTies
  22. I ran through my concordance looking for masturbation and I couldn’t find any occurrence of it in the bible. #SoulTies
  23. I also couldn’t find masturbation in the list of specific sins God commanded us against both in OT & NT. #SoulTies
  24. Effectively, we can’t find God directly forbidding masturbation or authorising masturbation. #SoulTies
  25. On d basis of my last 3 tweets, I allude that God said nothing specific about d legitimacy or non-legitimacy of masturbation. #SoulTies
  26. We then continue by eliminating all d traditional arguments against masturbation before zooming in on its negative effects. #SoulTies
  27. The first argument against masturbation is usually drawn from an account of some guy called Onan. #SoulTies
  28. Gen 38:8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. #SoulTies
  29. Gen 38:9a And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife.. #SoulTies
  30. Gen 38:9b ….. that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. #SoulTies
  31. Gen 38:10 And the thing which he did displeased the Lord:wherefore he slew him also. #SoulTies
  32. In ancient culture, when a man died without kids, his brother was called in to impregnate his wife so he too can have kids. #SoulTies
  33. Onan turned up for the assignment. He stuck his organ in the woman but pulled it out before the sperms could flow out. #SoulTies
  34. The Lord was so angry with Onan over this mischievous act that He executed Onan. #SoulTies
  35. It doesn’t sound like masturbation to me what Onan did there. He had full sex but pulled out before d sperms could get out #SoulTies
  36. Onan then went on to spill his sperms on the floor and the Lord struck him for not providing seed for his late brother. #SoulTies
  37. The Lord didn’t kill Onan for masturbating cos he didn’t. D Lord killed him for refusing to raise kids for his dead brother. #SoulTies
  38. So this scripture passage cannot be used as an argument to assert that the Lord is displeased with masturbation. #SoulTies
  39. Lets examine another passage that is used by scholars to argue against the legitimacy of masturbation. #SoulTies
  40. Pro 6:26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought 2 a piece of bread: & d adulteress will hunt for d precious life. #SoulTies
  41. Pro 6:27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? #SoulTies
  42. This passage in Prov 6:26-27 again makes no reference to masturbation but to full sex with a whore or adulteress. #SoulTies
  43. With these 2 scriptures out of the way, we can safely conclude that God was silent about masturbation in the OT. #SoulTies
  44. God’s definition of sin in the OT was described articulately in detail through the laws that He gave to Israel. #SoulTies
  45. I started this conversation by saying that these tweets are directed to believers who have received Christ & d Holy Spirit. #SoulTies
  46. Let’s start to make our incursion into the New Testament. The coming of Christ is a huge game changer. #SoulTies
  47. Under the Old Testament, sin was defined as an outward violation of commandments but Jesus changed the game. #SoulTies
  48. Lets check out Matthew 5:27-28 #SoulTies
  49. Matt. 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: #SoulTies
  50. Matt 5:28a But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her …..  #SoulTies
  51. Matt 5:28b ….. hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.  #SoulTies
  52. Jesus expanded the definition of sin from mere outward violation of laws to include an inward lust for the forbidden things. #SoulTies
  53. Just avoiding an outward violation of God’s laws isn’t enough to walk in the Spirit. #SoulTies
  54. The Words of Christ need to renew our minds after our spirits have been reborn for us to walk above sin. Rom 12;1-2 #SoulTies
  55. For us born again Christians, it’s not only just an outward compliance but an inward submission of our thoughts to Christ. #SoulTies
  56. Jesus is effectively saying that escaping an outward violation of OT commandments isn’t enough to please God. #SoulTies
  57. Heb 11:6a says But without faith it is impossible to please him:for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,… #SoulTies
  58. Heb 11:6b says …. and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. #SoulTies
  59. Rom 14:21 says And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, cos he eateth not of faith:for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. #SoulTies
  60. We continue in Part 2. If you got here, don’t miss Part 2 tomorrow for anything. Part 1 is the foundation #SoulTies
