Introduction Both the Old Testament and the New Testament of our Bibles are unequivocal in teaching that God created human sexual expression when He created everything else, and that His intention has always been for sexual expression to be confined to marriage--between one man and one woman.
All pre-marital or extra-marital sexual expression--as well as all infidelity within a marriage, reflects our broken condition as sinners in this present world.
The New Testament uses words such as porneia in a broad sense, as an umbrella term.
Is masturbation, as discussed below, on the list? This very common practice is selfish, self-centeredaugmented by fantasies and usually followed by guilt, real or imagined.
Masturbation is often downright idolatrous. The norm for followers of Jesus Christ is agape self-giving love. Younger people do start out relatively innocent.
There is really no hope for purity or wholeness without the help of the indwelling life of Jesus Christ.
Sadly few marriages these days portray what "Holy Matrimony" was designed to be. The resouces Jesus offers are more than adequate to heal and make whole our brokeness in any area of life.
God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Masturbation is widely accepted as normal and harmless. Biological drives demanding fulfillment are powerful without doubt.

The man Jesus himself never married. He was killed at about the age of 30 after living a pure and obedient life before God in harmony with the Law of Moses.
Jesus returned from the dead three days later. After an interval of time spent meeting with his disciples and other believers, Jesus ascended into heaven.
There in heaven this same Jesus is now in charge of human history. From heaven He will one day return to rule mankind in perfect justice and with perfect, holy wholistic love. He always lives to make intercession for us, Hebrews says.
The true church is spoken of in the New Testament as the Bride of Christ. She is made up of millions of men, women, boys and girls. This virginized and revirginizedgroup of people from every nation and people, waits eagerly for the event called in the Bible, "The Marriage Supper of the Lamb" the Lamb is Jesus.
God alone makes broken people whole! Men and women, boys and girls, without exception. Old things have passed away, behold all things are made new.
