MASTURBATION MOLDS YOUR MIND INTO THE WORLD’S PATTERN OF THINKING.
The world’s pattern is largely based on lust (1 John 2:15-17). Masturbation rehearses lust in our
thoughts and reinforces it with physical pleasure. Using pornography or recalling sex memories while masturbating further ingrains the world’s pattern in our thoughts. The consequence of embracing the world's pattern (i.e. the pleasures of sin), is that we will block God’s love from operating in and through us: 15...."Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world-- the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-- is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:15,16. God wants us to no longer conform to the world’s pattern of thinking, but be transformed in our thinking.
