Why is masturbation wrong?

by Lorna


(I don't personally but) I read so much about people having problems with masturbation... I don't see why it is wrong. Does the Bible actually say it's wrong? I've heard that it can be healthy....
I don't want to discourage those who are trying to give it up... please don't measure yourselves by me... I just want to find out :)

Masturbation is a form of sex. God says that sex outside of marriage is wrong. He also designed sex to be between a man and a woman, not a one sided thing. Masturbation is an addiction. People do it for self-gratification. The only purpose it serves is for the person doing it. God want's us to do things that please Him not ourselves. He doesn't want us to be selfish, but to encourage others with the things that we do.

We could also look at it from a different stand point. If you were married and instead of coming to you for pleasure, but fulfilling himself and leaving you out of it, how would you feel?
