Answers:
Even if it is a sin, it is a MUCH better option than have pre-marital sex which MOST people nowadays believe to be okay
If that's true, plentiful of us are going straight to hell...
Let's be realistic. Many things we do are not "perfect". You'll never survive contained by this world if you are perfect. While I'm sure masturbating is nothing to be proud of, it's not exactly something to touch real guilty about any.
it depends
but i think its more of a sin than good
There is a story contained by the Bible about spilling your seed on the ground, the guy say he didn't, and thus he has sinned. (Kinda summarized that story a bit) Anyway, you could take from that story that it is a sin, or you could give somebody a lift from it that lying is a sin. Adultry is a sin. Adultry is sex with anyone but your spouse. Sex with your fiance is a sin also...end in they still are not your spouse. If you sin with your heart it is the same as in actuality committing the sin. Therefore you could say masturbating is a sin if you are thinking about anyone bar your spouse.

Kinda boring huh... have to be masturbate about your spouse. :P
God wants you to masterbate. Thats why he made it consistency so good.
According to the bible, it is a sin for men to masturbate. I don't believe that Female Masturbation is brought up.
yeah masterbating is a sin
Is looking at a rock a sin? It adjectives depends on the person you are asking. If you ask a christian if masturbation is a sin they might reply one way or the other. One Jesus freak my articulate that it makes god unhappy because you are giving within to your flesh and falling into temptation. Another might say that god made you a sexual anyone and masturbation is healthy. All scientific information supports that it is in fact natural on many levels: Population control, rigidity release, STD prevention, etc. For guys, since we are all on a testosterone high 24/7, its apt to release the sexual tension we store up. For women, the same entity... for some. Some times women are born with high sexual appetites that call for to be fed. So its healthy.
But on the other side, anything can become seedy. Just like drinking, gambling and what not. If you consent to your self fall into being controlled by any feat or substance and become addicted, then it is a bad piece. Masturbation is potentially harmful if you need to do it adjectives the time any time anywhere... so just be jarful and never let your self become over taken by anything. Always be within control. And enjoy! lol Source(s): my brain
dont listen to that crap...it's not a sin.face it your human, humans masterbate, animals masterbate everybody has atleast masterbated once within thier lifetime. dont fall for that crap please, do it when you please and on your own private time and noone will punish you...believe me!

JESUS SAYS ..STROKE AWAY!!
It depends what you are thinking in the region of. Be careful because you may burst into flames.
it isnt but it also depends on what are you watching or thinking when you are
NOPE :}

What do you think about when you are doing it?
You are lusting after someone, that's call covet!

If something happened to my wife
I would to some extent do that then to commit fortification though,
sinning againist myself is better

AND

Yes masturbation is a sin, because it causes lust, and for other reasons:

Matthew 5:28 But I influence unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Genesis 38:8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go within unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.
9 And Onan know that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass by, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should make available seed to his brother.
10 And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.


We can see from these that masturbation is indeed a sin - though document that Onan's sin was not masturbation but the practise of a form of rudimentary contraception. The principle still applies, though. Source(s): http://www.freejesus.net/home/viewtopic.…

You should'nt have to take the thing into your own hands, find someone to do it for you, like a wife/husband
NO, its your body, do what you feel close to doing!!
It's completley robust. I am a christian, and I do it. Do what you think is right.
do what you want. it is a good bearing to release stress. Dont listen to that tool who is married talkin to a girl about masturbation. If he wants to be criticle, i could say aloud he's cheating on that wife he speaks of.

Look I am a guy 20 yrs matured come from a deeply catholic family, but im not that bizarre and i got along pretty well next to chicks so i decided to send my parents to fly along beside what they taught me and started my sexual life at 16 (which is scarce for mexicans in my social context) at 19 i had gotten laid adequate times, and i didnt feel really that happy i masturbated speak what once every two days if I didnt have sex and quite frankly it construct you feel like you cant hold contained by and you have to 'release' that sexual energy I started to read why ethnic group where in favor of masturbation and consequently also considered necessary to know why they were against it. The bottomline i found out that by not masturbating (excercising control over your sexual urges give you stronger willpower) make you take on a different approach to sexuality, (not pleasre only orientated but involving the from the heart aspect) and you feel more in control of yourself making the time you in actuality do engage in sex w/ someone you love something more pleasureable. I am striving not to masturbate and own stayed "virgin" for 9 months and im holding up quite well, o ive fall a couple of times into masturbating but its mainly when i have drunken alcohol. I speak if i want to be religious then ill do it right. I progress to mass everyday work and study in college i also work out and i am not stressed, turning gay or any other weird S*it i lately took a decision a abdided by it.
I really don't think it is a sin, and you made a good point something like not having sex. I definatly wouldn't stress about it if you are doing it surrounded by the privacy of your own home.
yes, lamentably it is... just think roughly speaking it, if you have to ask, and if it doesn't initially feel right, later what do you think, it's really your call, but i believe it's a sin...
Ask a Roman Catholic priest.
