Modern sex educators have been going around telling people that masturbation is normal, that it is okay. It feels good, just do it, like some ad for a Nike commercial.
For some people, not masturbating can be difficult once the habit is picked up. A favorite anti-porn Web site of mine suggests that you imagine that every time you masturbate, God kills a kitten. That may work for some, but perhaps reflecting on the real dangers of masturbation will be a little more sobering.
As has been pointed out recently in congressional hearings, masturbation produces erotoxins that work directly on the brain and do permanent damage. Now in initial studies they looked at erotoxins caused by masturbating to pornography, but I am pretty sure that further study will show that any form of masturbation produces these erotoxins. It only makes sense. I believe it will be proved that these toxins are a leading cause of violence and crime, as was suggested in the congressional hearings.
That’s bad enough, since it alone will destroy your life. If you read the work of pioneering researcher Harvey Kellogg (yes, the same guy who also invented those delicious breakfast corn flakes on your morning table), you’ll know that an amazing number of diseases have been traced directly to masturbation. While so-called modern scientists may try to refute the work of Kellogg, you show me someone with a disease and I’ll show you a masturbator. It just makes sense, since it depletes your energy and damages your brain, which is pretty much a guarantee of weakening your immune system. That’s just basic science.
Still, these are just worldly problems, and what we should really be worried about is the next world. This is where it gets really ugly. When you masturbate, you are almost assuredly lusting after someone other than your wife, if you have one. The Bible says that lusting in your heart is just as bad as adultery. Now, what was the punishment for adultery? They stoned you to death. Now, imagine facing God and let us say you masturbated once a week for twenty years. That is over 1,000 incidences of adultery! If God condoned stoning for just one incidence of adultery, what do you think He will do to you when you show up with the stain of over 1,000 incidents? I would not want to be in your shoes, I can tell you that!
