10 Reasons To Make Masturbation Part Of Your Wellness Routine by Alexandra JamiesonMay 5, 2015 10:42 AM mindbodygreen.com
“..Through working with thousands of women as a health coach (in addition to my own personal experience), masturbation has been both an uncomfortable topic to talk about — while also being a powerful healing technique. It’s time to finally embrace it.
Masturbation has gotten a bad reputation, mainly because religion and culture tell us it’s a sin. The Bible doesn’t explicitly talk about masturbation, although there is some stern warning against “spilling your seed on the ground.” The Catholic Church decided that masturbation (sometimes referred to as “onanism” after Onin, a Biblical character) was a sin deserving of eternal damnation.
By the time World War I came around, onanism was being called “self-abuse” and described in medical texts as more dangerous to young boys than lying or stealing. Girls and women aren’t even mentioned, as if “the fairer sex” couldn’t even possibly do something so dirty.
So it stands to reason that most of us would feel some traces of shame, guilt, or even fear when practicing this very natural act. But take heart from the animal world and modern science! Dozens of mammal, bird, and insect species have been documented to masturbate in captivity and in the wild. From penguins, to dolphins, horses, and even porcupines, mother nature has no judgment when it comes to wrapping your hand, wing, or fin, around your own personal magic wand. ..”
Masturbation Debate (Part 1) , from youtube.com
“..Published on Aug 17, 2012
One of the most common topics that gets debated in our ministry is masturbation. Is it a sin? Does the Bible say anything about it? Does it even matter when talking about sexual purity? These and many other questions come up over and over. This 3-part series will help shed light on this issue from a biblical perspective…”
Masturbation: Is It Wrong? Dr. Juli Slattery todayschristianwoman.com
Yes . . . and no. Guidelines for sorting out a complicated question.
“.. 1. What are you thinking about?
While masturbation itself isn’t immoral, the sexual fantasies that usually go with it may be. Most women only masturbate when they are thinking about or looking at something sexual. Sexual fantasies about someone you are not married to are, as Jesus stated, “adultery of the heart.”
“But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman [or man] with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:28)
If you are single, fantasizing even about some fictional sexy guy is promoting lustful thoughts. If you are married and fantasizing about another man, you are violating, in your mind and heart, your promise to give yourself sexually only to your husband. On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with a married woman fantasizing about her own husband…
2. What is your motive?
The Bible makes it clear that God is very concerned about our motives. For example, giving money to your church might be a wonderful act of worship or an empty gesture, depending upon the attitude of your heart. The same can be true of masturbation.
3. Is it mastering you? (No pun intended.)
The apostle Paul taught that “nothing should master” us. In other words, we shouldn’t be controlled or addicted to anything…
4. Am I honoring God with my body?
“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20)….
Can Christians Masturbate?
“Published on Jun 9, 2013
This video uses common Protestant theology to show that masturbation for Christians does not need to be such a guilt-ridden, condemning act as it is often treated.
For my regular subscribers, please note that I am not using a skeptical method of analyzing doctrine but am staying within the bounds of commonly accepted Protestant beliefs.

Negative Effects of Masturbation
September 24, 2012 by Andrew Michell howtostopmasturbation.com
Does masturbation have negative effects? Scientists published this very revealing graph in the Archives of Sexual Behavior here. You can see that as masturbation increases the satisfaction with life decreases. The more a person masturbates the more dissatisfied a person may become. This leads to depression, unhappiness, lack of motivation, and other problems. (click to enlarge picture)
If masturbation is so healthy as so many claim then why are so many people here complaining of pain and negative effects from masturbating? Religion has nothing to do with it because even non religious people experience the same pains and negative side effects. Actually %100 of the data from this study came from Sweden, which is the most atheistic country* in the western world! The more often atheists masturbate the worse they feel. Some will reply “But masturbation is okay unless you are doing it 10 times a day.” Look at the graph. People who feel the worst masturbate only 10 times a month. ..”

The Azusa Street Revival of 1906 was the most powerful expression of revival in modern times. Multitudes were saved, healed, filled with the Holy Spirit and experienced miracles. 110 years on Lou Engle of TheCall is trusting God for a fresh outpouring… at Azusa Now.
Join many leading revivalists LIVE from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday 9 April, including Bill Johnson, Heidi Baker; Todd White; Daniel Kolenda; Shawn Bolz and others. With worship led by Bethel Music and Jesus Culture.
For 15 years TheCall has proclaimed an uncompromising message of consecration to Jesus, crying out, “Prepare the way of the Lord”, just like John the Baptist. Now Lou Engle believes it is time for a new Jesus Movement that will “Behold the Lamb!”
Azusa Street transcended barriers as diverse people gathered in bonds of love, unity and prayer. Azusa Now is built on the hope that such revival can happen again. Azusa revivalist, William Seymour said it would. He prophesied the Holy Spirit would be poured out even stronger, 100 years later…
Watch Azusa Now and trust God for a fresh encounter with Jesus!
“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29)..”

Turkish and Armenian Christians Reconcile on Genocide Anniversary
Televised prayers at Yerevan memorial cap an unprecedented effort at forgiveness.

(WWM) “We came to share your pain,” Turkish Christians declared in early April, standing before TV cameras at the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Yerevan.
“We have come here to apologize for what our ancestors did, to ask for your forgiveness,” two spokesmen for the Turks went on to say.
Shocked viewers across Armenia watching the Azdarar TV news channel on April 11 could hardly believe their eyes and ears.
Turks, claiming to be Christian? And laying wreaths at the nation’s genocide memorial? How could Turks, of all people, come to Armenia to honor the memory of more than a million Armenian Christians who had been slaughtered 100 years ago by their own forefathers, the Ottoman Turks?..”

The Azusa Street Revival of 1906
“Published on Jul 12, 2013
Documentary about the Azusa Street Revival :
The Azusa Street Revival was a historic Pentecostal revival meeting that took place in Los Angeles, California and is the origin of the Pentecostal movement. William Joseph Seymour was an African American from Louisiana and was a son of a former slave who had severe case of smallpox which left him blind in one eye and a disfigured face. He was born May 2, 1870 in Centerville Louisiana. The Revival began with a meeting on April 9, 1906, and continued until roughly 1915. It came to be known as the birthplace of the Pentecostal Movement Revival and the birth of a spiritual renewal that hit around the world.”

Dream of a Glimpse of Hell
When I was a kid, I loved watching “horror” films with neighborhood friends. Unfortunately, all that “negative” visual movie scenes produced some nightmares and fear (e.g. I would be afraid of the dark, like going upstairs when the lights were off in the house). However, when I was sick (e.g. flu), I would somehow have these repetitive dreams:
“I was in this “hot, dark, red-lava-like, etc..” place somewhere underground or some cave. I would see these “non-human” shape creatures/figures all around. I would be sweating and scared. “
I would get these same dreams almost every time I was “sick”. It wasn’t just movies too. I had a family background and personal (sinful) lifestyle that had some cultural practices that opened doors to “demonic” strongholds, which I’ll share later. When I became a Christian (e.g. saved, see http://testimony.goodnewseverybody.com/ ) in my early years of college, I would become more knowledgeable about “good” and “evil”. I look back and feel that these dreams were just a “glimpse of hell” after studying the Bible (see What Does the Bible Say About Hell? – OpenBible.info)
I had a dream that I can still remember to this day when I was in college. A friend from church invited me to do a tape recording of his radio show “Living Waters”. This particular show, we were going to do a story of “Hell”. I was to play a guy who goes to “Hell” and was given a script prior to our rehearsals on a Saturday morning. Well, I studied and practiced it the night before. That evening, I would have a dream of a glimpse of “Hell”. I was in my bed and felt my jaw locked together. I tried to physically open it, but I couldn’t. I then woke (in my dream still) -up and saw a demon on the corner of my bed. Remembering from Scripture, I told “it” to go away in “Jesus’ name”. Through this, I was able to open my jaw. I then woke-up from my dream and was sweating. That day, I was able to get ready for rehearsals for this skit as I had this personal experience of “Hell”…(see Deceiver)
I can testify now that I don’t have any nightmares as I’ve learned to practice a more “safer” (Biblical, Christ-like *disclaimer: I’m not perfect) lifestyle from the darkness out in our society. What you feed your mind, you’ll reap. I encourage you to seek God on this particular lifestyle.
