The “M” word. A topic rarely talked about in the Christian world, especially with women, but one that needs to be discussed openly and freely. Before going to college, I believed nothing was wrong with doing it because one wasn’t “having sex”. At this point in my life, I was not an authentic believer, and rarely spent time reading God’s Word. Then I went to college and began getting mentored by an older believer. She shared with me that it is a sin, but I had to turn to scripture to figure out why. I want to pass on this information not to make you feel guilty, but to help you realize why masturbation is a sin. If you don’t fully understand the issue, you won’t have the heart desire to want to change your actions.
