Be encouraged brother!It took some time to get to that level and it will take time to get out of it!
Even single Christians get married to Jesus in heaven as part of the Bride of Christ. That is important to remember in avoiding fornication, masturbation, and pornography. True intimacy with God in heaven is way better pleasure than sex on Earth. I think we just get a small taste of that in the form of sex on Earth before going to heaven. Sexual desire can be a blessing or a curse. If it drives you to sin, then it is a curse. If you can resist sexual temptations, you will receive more rewards in heaven and will be a blessing. Fornication is always easy for me to avoid, but masturbation has been the biggest problem. Realizing that sexual desire can be a blessing as a single person has provided me a lot of motivation to avoid masturbation recently. It is really hard and not easy. Minimize masturbation as much as you can to honor God. God knows what you can handle in that mission. Just stay motivated and keep your eyes on the prize, which is Jesus.
Yh, I’m not married and the sexual urges are strong but where do I want to spend eternity?
Mark, as said earlier, the fight is real. Keep fighting but know that one day, it will end. With everything that’s been said, let’s bear in mind that our life here on earth is only temporal. When Christ comes, I’ll rather He finds me fighting to stay pure than in sin. If few minutes of pleasure in the wrong way can guarantee a HELL FOREVER, man, think again. Because on that final day, when rapture has occurred and you find yourself left behind, your sexual desires will not even come to mind. Pray and ask God to make away for you in marriage. And when you pray, do not doubt. He knows best and Mark, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Know that.
I just left a similar comment to someone else because they too said what you said, to get married to control your sexual desires
Well, I’m single and I’m burning. I get you more than you can imagine. I wish God sent a man who’d marry me and we’d be intimate every day. God bless, Bly, 48 year old very attractive and loving God woman
Its not easy overcoming this stuff but with God it is very easy. He is our strength. I am 31 and these feeling hey keep becoming high everyday! I want to be married.
If you want to have sex, have sex. God doesn’t care about your marital status. A bunch of controlling people want you to think that, though. No shame. Marriage is made up by man-not God.
That is NOT why you get married. That is literally THE WORST REASON. And just because two people are married does not mean they owe each other sex. Just because you’re married DOES NOT mean you have to have sex. I hope you get married for all the right reasons and to the best person before any of that..
To anyone reading this: first off, be healthy and have sex only with who you want to and when you want to. Second, anyone who tells you that God “wants you to be married” to have sex is, frankly, a lying sack of crap. Nowhere does it say that. Sexual shame is a tool for people to control you and it is unhealthy. Just be accountable to your own heart, soul, and head. You can believe in something bigger than yourself and still control your sexual destiny-it isn’t either or.
