This masturbation is really wrecking my life and i cant stop it, so hopefully chemical castration will work for me.
Regular castration is an option too, look into it, research it.
If you look into it and decide for yourself and mostly ‘is this what Jesus wants’?and im speaking of the Jesus of the bible, not the mormon Jesus.They will undoubtedly assist many young men and couples in alleviating harmful guilt and pain… I hate the thing because it makes me lose my self control. The truth is, even when you’ve figured it all out, you will likely still sometimes fall into the trap of pornography. All good things in life take hard work, and most of them will require a change in you. Its about looking up and seeing what your missing, the person you could be. Pick yourself up by the boot straps and start making it better, by your own sweat. I only wish that the church did not foster the “trashy” feelings that it does in relation to these issues, but the more I learn about the church, the more I am certain that, almost invariably, these are the feelings that it fosters. i am a born again believer in Jesus, and i struggle with lust, lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and masturbation is the spinoff of lust and porn also, i have done everything i know to do, regarding the bible, etc.I forget what is important to me and hunger for this thing that, aside from driving away your spirituality, interferes with your life in general. prayers, and it came to me to be chemically castrated.I think what revolutionized my life was the concept of grace and not trusting my own flesh(Philippians 3:3),not even a bit. Please read through Romans chapters 3-6, you’ll see how no one is righteous, how righteousness can only be received through faith and is imputed to us from Christ, and being justified by faith we now have peace with God, we’ve found REST : D, Being crucified with Christ means that our self(sin nature) was crucified, and now being in Christ WE DON’T OWE THE FLESH anything because “the body ruled by sin might be done away with” “When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.
21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
Or you can do what is natural for a few minutes, get a release and go about your day a happy person. “Sin” is measured by how you affect others and it affects yourself. If you’re spending it on porn and masturbation, and not saving it for your spouse, I think you can consider it harmful there.
But being in control of your own happiness is the last thing the church wants. The church says “you are bad” and “We are the only ones who can take away the badness.” Thus they tell an untrue story which gives them power over you. It’s difficult to imagine a greater sin than to contribute to a guilt-shame cycle so intense that it makes somebody want to castrate themselves. Women: if your husband starts to require you to do thing with which you are uncomfortable, starts to become critical of your body, expects you to change your body, tell him it’s not okay, and if he persists, then consider dumping the loser. I’ve spent an entire life trying to overcome the damaged sense of self from having grown up Mormon. Pornography has destroyed so many marriages, destroyed so many lives, and it is such an awful way to demean something sacred.
Remember, we have victory in Christ, and no matter what you do, that doesn’t change God’s unconditional love for you.
It’s a little funny, but after I talked few months ago with Mormons about the concept of grace, and how they have to be perfect so that grace is sufficient, or a verse from BOM says that “we are saved by grace after all we can do” I now know better how much grace means to me, and how impossible would it be to save myself through my works.
I think it’s important not to punish yourself for it, or torment yourself.
