Tell me, what form of self pleasure would you consider NOT moraless? Like some people in this thread have mentioned, it's not about your actions, but your intentions. Right? So what's the difference with people that have watched porn with people that haven't, but resist the urge to?

Also, any kind of premarital sexual acts are considered to be immoral. Why? Without reference to anything in the Bible, what is it that gives post-marital sex more moral value than premarital? You're telling me that a guy can have the worst intentions, chasing after a girl only to get what he wants but it's not immoral since they get married but couples who have been with each other for years and have remain faithful, but they are condemned to hell because they don't have a piece of paper that says they're legally bonded?


READ THIS! This is a serious answer.
The main one is masturbation. This is a really controvertial topic since the bible didn't mention ANYTHING about MASTURBATION specifically. it did mention lusting, and looking at a girl lustfully. Looking at a girl lustfully is already sin, and if you masturbate, you are fantasizing in your HEAD that you are doing it with her. Furthermore, 99% (not a real statistic) watch porn (males) to accompany masturbation. This is the sin. Fantasizing someone that is not your spouse is the sin. Although some people (Christians) say that they can masturbate without fantasizing. Although that is high unlikely, if it is possible, then it might not be a sin. It is best to just avoid masturbation and porn overall since one leads to the other. Your question about intention is a good one too. If you INTEND to and KNOWINGLY masturbate/watch porn if you are a christian, and you KNOW that this is against God, then you are not following his commandments. We follow his commandments because we love him, and he loved us first by (blah blah blah jesus sent down to earth blah blah). The difference is that the people that have watched porn have sinned, but it is the ones that do it intentionally that sinned more and is truly the ones that are against god. While the ones that haven't watched porn and resisted the urge to is clean, and have not committed that particular sin. Though they might have even though about a girls breast or body once, and that itself is sin. Thus, no one is sinless. Although statistically, it is proven that 90 percent of men watch porn, and thus they have all sinned. What matters is are you truly feeling guilty and want to follow god because you love him, versus disobeying him and just watching it anyway, tricking yourself that it is all normal since everyone else does that.

Extramarital acts are considered immoral because god created men procreate with ONE other women. We believe that men are born with a chosen spouse that god will lead you to. This doesn't mean that it WILL be her, but that god has prepared someone for you that will satisfy your every expectation and be a better spouse than opposed to what YOU choose after you sin. Thus, this also means that divorce is not right, however, god forgives and still blesses those divorced couples with new wives/husbands. God wants you to be faithful to YOUR WOMEN (or other half) to REFLECT YOUR RELATIONSHIP with HIM. Thus, if you are faithful to that one wife, then you are faithful to god, and this gives Him joy. Thus, by having sex ex maritally, you are CHEATING on your future wife, and having sex with the future wife of someone else.
The whole point is NOT about the paper, or about the legal stuff. its about YOU and YOUR WIVES status in the eyes of God. thus the blah blah church and priest and blah stuff.
Furthermore, about the chasing after the girl with the worst intentions. In this case, he truly is not relying on God and looking for the one he truly loves.
Ex. The man marries for money
Answer: God BLESSES you no matter what you choose. Even when you sin, he just wants you to repent, and he will forgive you and bless you. Thus, if he really marries that women for her money, then God might in one scenario, make them love each other at the end, and make them a happy couple. That is if he is a practicing Christian that believes in those values. This question is slightly off the porn question, but its a lil hard to answer.

WOW. that took long. If you really have a question about Christianity, why not just ask a pastor or something. Or even search it up on Google, trust me it works. But that sums up the long hours of Church/Programs sunday throughout my life..

Thanks for reading. clapclap

I do have friends who are Christian and watch porn. They tell me that to be human is to err therefore we all make mistakes. But I feel it is not a mistake if they purposely view pornography. Anyone?

you are talking about pure/strict christians??? If you think about a pure-strict christian, then think Ned Flanders from "the simpsons"

I think REAL Christians should just cut ribs out of people and pray for God to make them into offsprings.

Everyone someone has sex that does not result in pregnancy, it's a sin. That applies to wife and husband too.

My local priest named Billy Bob Joe Thomas told me so.

I think the whole "no porn thing" is a stupid idea. As a Catholic, I believe that the verse "thou shall not spill thy seed...." or something along those lines being a misinterpretation of the scriptures. In that verse, God was specifically instructed the man to have intercourse with another woman and procreate. He pulled out (Bible is kinda graphic, eh?) and God got pissed at THAT man for disobeying his directions. THAT guy was supposed to follow God's directions. He didn't. It does not mean we cannot masturbate or watch porn. That's a dumb interpretation. We are not hurting anyone by doing this. In fact, I believe we are hurting ourselves by not watching porn. Take Japan for example. With all their hentai and porn, they have the lowest rate of sexual crimes. Catholic priests have the bad reputation for being child molestors. You never see a Protestant priest on the news saying he was a child molestor. Why is that? Because he is married and has sex! Our pent up frustrations for lack of sexual activity leads us to commit these crimes in the first place! If we weren't intended to watch porn, God would have never allowed us to make porn.

To a christian, watching porn is a sin. A sin like lying.

Do christians lie? yes. Is it wrong for them to do so? Yes, but it's wrong for everyone to do so in Christianity, not just christians.

Christians are different from non-christians not because they don't and won't sin, it's because they believe in Christ. That's the main key point for christianity. Christians are still human, they will commit sins. It doesn't make it more wrong or more right, because actions are not what determines salvation in Christianity. I'm not saying all Christians can watch porn and be fine about it, they shouldn't be fine about it, but just saying it's no different from any other sin they'll commit in their lives.

That is a stupid question, Christianity is a religion, I am a christian and I have seen porn, do you think christians live or carry on their lives in a guilded fortress? They do the same thing all of us do, whomever say they do not watch porn is a bloody liar.

So, you reckon that everyone in this world has watched porn at least once, don't you? If anyone says he/she never sees it, you'll regard him/her a bloody liar?

Christians commit sins all the time, I bet most people have watched porn and think impure thoughts. If they refuse to admit it then they are commiting even more bad deeds :loool:

Makes sense to be a Roman Catholic because you always have the option to repent your sins! lol....

My husband and I are both Christians and I consider us good Christians mostly, active in the church, pray almost daily, donate but do sin of course. We also do view porn together and apart (him more than me) and well i know we shouldn't technically i don't really feel guilty or embarrassed about it. If a church friend asked i would answer truthfully and hope they would not judge me and treat me differently. just my 2cents...

Christians do watch porn, I'm a christian and I sometimes watch porn. It is not bad nor satanist like to look up porn nor is it evil.

It really depends on your reason and purpose to look up porn. Porn is used in most cases to ease masturbation which is obviously not bad at all because you are simply uses it to help yourself, afterall masturbation is something we do normally to relieve tension hence it is not bad for us.

If you look up porn to see people get abused or used or pushed beyond their borders or doing things that are unnatural such as molestation and animal porn and stuff like that YEAH your going to be begging for forgiveness from God.

These are the basic reasons for looking up porn so far:

- To relieve tension - good

- To exercise the mind (like if your inexperienced at sex or just want to know how to lol) - good

- To avoid others - bad

- To see people get hurt/abused/used - bad


It all comes down to this basic question; "Do Christians ever watch porn?"

Yeah they do, and it's bad depending on the reason for why you watch it, but since most people only look it up for good purposes such as to relieve tension and educational reasons lol it's not bad and you will go to heavy and so will your friends.

No matter what anyone tells you, don't believe them, believe God and what he tells you, not anyone else.

Good post, good question. God will always love those who are loving, and that's all that matters.

I hope I made some sort of sense to the viewers of this post lol

well...i have watched porn before, and it was more than once..and i feel terrible about..like i feel like such a horrible person. I begged God to forgive me and I believe that he has. I love God far to much to let such a thing get in between us lol.

I have been working to get my life together with my relationship with God and I believe once I form a stronger relationship with him that I will no longer have a desire to think about the possibility of viewing porn.

i believe that porn is wrong but i will not be the one speaking to you on your judgement day. only God knows your heart. i always hope that people arent judging my every move because that is only Gods job..so why shuld we do that to others.

Not only do they watch porn, their priests also molested children. Don't worry, their all forgiving GOD will still love them....right Christians?



i know it sounds bad...but God forgives if the heart is honest. Sin cannot be ranked. Murder is just as bad as lying. Sin is sin. But, a person must honestly repent to God. We do not know what is in the heart of those priests who did molest children....IT IS DISGUSTING AND I DO NOT CONDONE IT AT ALL....but its God's job to decide who is truly repenting...who really loves him. There is also the discussion of demons...but that is too intense for me lol. but sumone could of had a demon of lust that was causing them to behave this way..

I dunno'. I know plenty of Christian who watch porn. Honestly, as long as they don't bash on you for watching porn, and they don't claim to be perfect. Why hate 'em for it? As long as they aren't a hypocrite, I really don't care what they do that's technically 'wrong' in their religion.

of course(even though id don't do this).. being a christian doesn't really mean that you obey that 10 commandments received by Moses... well it does mean like that but you get what i mean.. we are still human that's prone to sin.. that's why we confess to our priests if we do for them to guide us on to what to do..

i don't know if i will go to hell if i watch porn. im a christian and i do believe in god. i watched porn since im 11 when i got curious and ive done it regulary until a week from now. i planned to lessen my porn watching for 2 a week or 1 a week. and im doing fine. I watch porn so i could masturbate for the good. So i wont be tensed and be more crazy of sex. im 13 right now. guys do u think ill go to hell if i did porn once or twice a week? am i making sense?

And one thing that convinces me that i wont go to hell is because our parents have sex and sex is worst than porn. But they've done more good things than that and im pretty sure they wont go to hell.

post reply please asap thx for reading this.

Rhetoric

Did Buddha ever have sex?
Has any Muslim ever seen a horse having sex with a human girl?
Are all Muslims terrorists?
Why do we stereotype Muslims?
Why do we stereotype Christians?
Are Christians "perfect" - I know you think they are, and they're theologically "in Christ" but only because of being "in Christ".

I feel like some truth needs to be added to this discussion. Yes, some christians look at pornography. Some do it and don't care (are they really christians? I don't know). Some do it because they feel drawn to it but want to stop and feel helpless to quit. Some are seriously struggling with it.

It is wrong to look at porn because you commit adultery while doing so.

BUT......God understands we are not perfect and he understands our struggle as christians trying to do what is right, although we mess up a lot.

God forgives. Period. His Son Jesus took care of our sin long ago. Now we owe Jesus our lives. So, we try to do what He says. But we sometimes mess up.

We are not without respnsibility for our actions when there are consequences to them. And we do suffer consequences. It's natural. But, we lean on Jesus when it comes to forgiveness and we have confidence that despite our mistakes, God accepts us and forgives us and will not forsake us, because of Jesus.

You're not supposed to watch porn, but there's this thing called temptation that is hard to resist.

Christians are tempted by porn just like any other sin but it defiles the purity of the marriage bed so it is wrong and it is very addicting and can lead to the act itself outside marriage or lead to cyber porn and wreck a relationship. It is not healthy for any relationship.

Extramarital acts are considered immoral because god created men procreate with ONE other women. We believe that men are born with a chosen spouse that god will lead you to.


If that is so then explain why "great" biblical men such as Abraham, David, Solomon had more than 1 wife.
