Thoughts on Masturbation

Masturbation is a sin in the same way that eating an entire tub of your favorite ice cream on your own is.
It is a different type of indulgence perhaps?
There is so much wrong with all the guilt instilled in us from birth about sexuality.  Sexuality is beautiful in its own special way.  Sexuality can be gentle and loving and kind,  as it should be.
Why does everything have to be so complicated.
Our church says that is is bad because while we are all sinners, indulgence of any kind is a sin.  Our culture says it is good because it helps you relax and be comfortable with yourself and it is good for your physical health and mental health.
Our church looks at things outwardly.  That the path to salvation is to deny ourselves.  Our culture looks at things inwardly. That in the moment,  all we need to think or worry about is making sure we are physically and mentally healthy and happy.
Our church says,  turn to God with all your troubles and turmoils and anxieties and in Him you will find rest.
Faith.  It takes faith to find peace. Peace in anything.
