  1. Masturbation is not even mentioned in the Bible. Yet some Christians are adamant it is a sin, a crime against God. Are they right or wrong? What is your take?o_O

    Isn't sin defined as when your actions are hurting someone? So how can Masturbation be a sin if you are not hurting anyone? :kiss:

    What do you say to the following passage?

    6 Judah got a wife for Er, his firstborn, and her name was Tamar. 7 But Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the LORD’s sight; so the LORD put him to death. 8 Then Judah said to Onan, “Sleep with your brother’s wife and fulfill your duty to her as a brother-in-law to raise up offspring for your brother.” 9 But Onan knew that the child would not be his; so whenever he slept with his brother’s wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from providing offspring for his brother. 10 What he did was wicked in the LORD’s sight; so the LORD put him to death also.
    Genesis 38(NIV)
