Masturbation Is Not A Sin – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome [Video]

For people worried about offending God on the issue of masturbation, yours truly renowned man of God of the Christ embassy Pastor Chris Oyakilome reckons it is not a sin to masturbate.
In a television broadcast of Pastor Chris Live, a viewer from Ghana sent in a question asking how one can overcome masturbation.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome kept his cool and tackled the questions head on – even though his answer must have got a good number of viewers going OMG!

“The reason you want to stop this is because of what you think it is,” he says. “You think there’s something wrong with this. Get this straight, in itself it is not a sin against God but satan uses it to oppress our minds to make us feel ineffective and inefficient in the things of God. God has got nothing to do with it, he is not offended by it unless it takes a hold of your mind.”

Pastor Chris likens masturbation to playing football. It’s a habit, he says, and if you want to stop it, replace it with another habit.

Ok, so certainly, this must come as a relief to many!

  8. there is not even a single time a person masturbates without thinking or bringing the picture of an opposite sex with all that imagination as though that person was having sex with them, hence i disagree with this statement to say “masturbation is not a sin” coz it causes one to sin according to MATHEW 5:28.

    by Tobias Mutombo on Feb 23, 2012 at 9:39 pm

  9. Which Scripture in the Bible forbids masturbation? I ve read the Bible from Genesis to revelations and I ve not seen any Scripture forbidding this act. If it’s sin then what manner of sin is it? You cant commit adultery or fornication alone except with an opposite sex

  16. what kind of ignorance is this? If Christ said who ever looks at a woman lustfully has comited adultery; Matt 5:28, “But I say unto you, that whosoever lookth on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” come on guys, when you masturbate for you to reach orgasm you have to fantasise of some woman in your mind. that is what makes it sin. You can’t do it without those thoughts. If Chris can say it is not sin, I will not be shocked to hear him say having a boy/girl friend is not sin. CAREFULL!

  20. Do Not get the man of God wrong, what makes Mastabation a sin are the pictures you create in your mind when mastabating. Jesus said that whoever committing adultery by thinking of a woman in a negative way.
    Pastor Chris has said it is not a sin in itself IF IT DOES NOT GET HOLD OF YOUR MIND. he is right in this case, most people create pictures when mustabating of women their admire but if you can do it without thinking of another woman/ man then maybe it may not be so

  21. Genesis 38
    Judah and Tamar
    1 At that time, Judah left his brothers and went down to stay with a man of Adullam named Hirah. 2 There Judah met the daughter of a Canaanite man named Shua. He married her and made love to her; 3 she became pregnant and gave birth to a son, who was named Er. 4 She conceived again and gave birth to a son and named him Onan. 5 She gave birth to still another son and named him Shelah. It was at Kezib that she gave birth to him.

    6 Judah got a wife for Er, his firstborn, and her name was Tamar. 7 But Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the LORD’s sight; so the LORD put him to death.

  23. 8 Then Judah said to Onan, “Sleep with your brother’s wife and fulfill your duty to her as a brother-in-law to raise up offspring for your brother.” 9 But Onan knew that the child would not be his; so whenever he slept with his brother’s wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from providing offspring for his brother. 10 What he did was wicked in the LORD’s sight; so the LORD put him to death also.

    by Deyablo on Feb 24, 2012 at 12:14 am

  25. commercialisation of the word of God is now leading to pastors preaching and imposing their opinion on issues rather than what the Bible ACTUALLY says about those issues. I thought pastor Chris would refer to a verse in order to help us understand God’s position on this matter.

  36. My take on masturbation: After studies on the subject, the said benefits, risks, countries like the UK encouraging it, etc, considering the fact that “masturbation usually involves fantasy, visualization, and often pornography”, I’m still of the opinion that it is sinful and I strongly believe it can be linked to demonic activity. “Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?” Proverbs 6:27,28. Masturbation is like taking fire in one’s bosom: he who engages in it will be burned. Self-control and mental purity should be encouraged. Thank you.

    8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s awife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.

    9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

    10 And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew (kill by violence’to destroy; extinguish) him also.

  52. Just so that we are all clear masturbation is a sin!

    Its like having sex with yourself and not the way God intended; which is through a proper blessed marriage!

    by FD on Feb 24, 2012 at 9:07 am

  53. is this biblical??can some one explain to me where the man of GOD is basing his answer?is it based on the morality or scripture???????

    by pamz on Feb 24, 2012 at 9:09 am

  54. masturbation usually involves fantasy, visualization, and often pornography. The Bible is very clear as to what God expects of us in these areas of fantasy and lust. It teaches that we must not look lustfully at each other nor should we behave in such a manner as to entice others to lust after us.

    “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look with lust upon a girl. I know full well that the Almighty God sends calamity on those who do” (Job 31:1-3, The Living Bible).

    “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28).

    by mark andi on Feb 24, 2012 at 9:10 am

  56. Since masturbation begins with sin in the mind, it might be called an “affair of the mind” because it brings about sexual sin inflicted against one’s own body. Although it brings a short lived gratification, it makes one feel defiled when continued on a regular basis. In fact, it is a form of fornication because fornication is more that just sex with someone before marriage, it includes many other sexual sins such as pornography and the use of sexual toys for gratification. People who are not satisfied with God’s plan for sex commit idolatry by using evil things to experience weird and unlawful forms of sexual intercourse. Some verses in Ezekiel actually describe this kind of fornication.

    Ezekiel 16:15-17:
    15But you trusted in and relied on your own beauty and were unfaithful to God and played the harlot [in idolatry] because of your renown, and you poured out your fornications upon anyone who passed by [as you worshiped the idols of every nation which prevailed over you] and your beauty was his.

    16And you took some of your garments and made for yourself gaily decorated high places or shrines and played the harlot on them–things which should not come and that which should not take place.

    17You did also take your fair jewels and beautiful vessels of My gold and My silver which I had given you and made for yourself images of men, and you played the harlot with them.

  62. It is like going to the tarven. In itself is not sin but what you find there (mahule etc) and what you will definitely do will be sin.

    by Deks on Feb 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

  63. What he is he talking about?Does he really read the bible?He is saying committing fornication is habbit and one only needs to replace it with another habbit in order to get rid of it? For one start murstabating,there has to be a trigger or motivation from somewhere.This maybe fantasising about having sex with a women you saw or an imaginery woman,reading a romantic story or book,watching a pornogaraphic movie or magazine and the list is endless.The moment this thoughts infiltrates your mind and you fail to control them,then you are in it the same way with the person who ends up commiting fornication or rape because you all have the same thoughts in mind ie having SEX.Conclusion,masturbation is a sin.

  65. IT IS REALLY SAD THAT GREAT MAN OF GOD OF HIS CALIBRE TO SAY MASTURBATION IS NOT A SIN.HOW CAN SELF SATISFICATION BE NOT A SIN . WHEN GOD SAID :THE LORD GOD SAID IT IS NOT GOOD THAT THE MAN TO BE ALONE; I WILL MAKE HIM A HELP MEET FOR HIM. GENESSIS 2.18 1 Corinthians 11:9
    God would not have given man a woman if HE knew man could satisfy himself. Please Men of God not dilute God’s words to suit your situation. You will be accountable to God for what ever you are doing

    by HAzel on Feb 24, 2012 at 10:14 am

  67. Gen 38. I think the man disobeyed God by spilling the sperms on the ground against Gods instructions. if the issue is of releasing the sperm in the woman, then what do you say of people that use condoms; are they sinners because Gods initial plan of sex had no condoms in it.
    people who masturbate just go an extra mile. the sin is no greater than the man that looks at the woman lustfully and in the end doesnt masturbate.
    to defend the man of God, it is not stated whether this person has fantasies of some woman or not and you know that the bible forbids us to judge others. i think pastor chris was just being sensitive to this case since the bible doesnt say that it is sin and we do not know the circumstances that lead to Him masturbating.
    @thy kingdom come. i think you become a murderer when you think of it or plan it, because thats wats gona cause you to pick the gun and shoot.
    masturbating in itself is not sin but can you afford to do it without lusting for some woman? what of a married man whose wife is out (or a widow) and masturbates whilst thinking of her is it sin?

    by mack on Feb 24, 2012 at 10:14 am

    by FREZARI on Feb 24, 2012 at 10:39 am

  70. It is sin,but what circmstancese leds to this? The way our bodies are.In the first place what makes a man think of proposing a woman,you can not propose a woman without imagining sex with her.no man think of a good food a woman will prepare whn he wants to marry,the first thing is sex.so do we say every married man sined b4 marriage and after marrying the sin is forgiven? its better to masturbate then to defile and kill after.Think of the mapepe,the recent chibombo defilment case.if that guy thought of masturbation that girl would be living 2day.

  71. Hey Pipo,

    So much talk out there about masturbation and homosexuality but no one talks about man/woman prostitution going on in our country.Does it mean it is legal in your minds?,certainly not legal with God.So plz talk against it than just against homosexuality and masturbation.To me they are all not right.

  73. Well,pastor Chris is man,and sometimes his tongue may slip but this doesnt mean we start judging him to hell.AND l think if given chance he may clarify the context on which he tried to explain this.We need to understand HOMILETICS(bible interpretation).Even adultary is a sin against yo own body.l m uncomfortable with pipo who start saying pastor chris is not a man of God.pipo be careful not to fight God.

    by Nicky on Feb 24, 2012 at 10:52 am

  74. Ths z rerious! Masturbation is a sin! The bible sayz in matt 5:29 if yo ryt eye causes u 2sin, pluck it out n cast it frm u; 4it z mo proftabo 4u that 1 of yo memba perish, than 4 yo whole body 2b cast in2 hell.. So if masturbation z cauzin u 2sin STOP IT! Thoz of u sayin its nt sin, u jst fulfilin wats writen in 2timothy 4:3-4 togetha na chris. Vs 3. 4the tim wil cum wen they wil nt endure sound doctrine, bt acording 2their own dsire, bcoz they hv itching ears,they wil heap up themselves teacherz (chris) n turn their ears away 4rm the truth..

    by kamfron on Feb 24, 2012 at 10:52 am

  75. ba chris are sure with what you said or it was a slip of the tongue? which Bible said it is not a sin? when one wants to masturbate what does he want to achieve? and what is the purpose of masturbating? if only these questions can be answered using the HOLY Bible then the answer will be found to this question that was asked by that bro. this is just an eye opener to those who think that every one called man of God is actually a child of God. open your eyes because the Bible is very straightforward, it says you shall know them by their fruits. Can an apple bear an orange?

  84. GALATIANS 6: 16-21
    This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
    For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh : and these are contrary the one to the other ; so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

  86. to all the people citing the example of onan in genesis. there is NO masturbation involved in the passage. its a passage disussing selfishly performing coitus when the man was obligated by law to produce offspring for his dead brother. I agree with the pastor. There is nowhere where masturbation is forbidden.

    by Sexy miss on Feb 24, 2012 at 12:27 pm

  89. Masturbation-simply defined- is to give yourself or somebody else sexual pleasure by stroking the genitals or, usually to orgasm. That definition clearly tells as that masturbation is a form and type of sex.And the bible is clear on both pre-marital (fornication) and extra marital affairs.

    Ask anyone who has masturbated in their lives before, they will tell you that they always have graphic pictures or even pornography itself to stimulate and enhance their act of masturbation.
    Masturbation comes about as a result of sexual desire that we all have as sexual beings God created us to be no doubt about that .If masturbation is ok, according to either medical personnel or any preacher however popular or famous they may be, then we might as well say that homosexuality or even lesbianism is ok too.
    If masturbating with graphics in our minds of people we are not even married to is ok, then we are also in a way saying it’s ok to sleep with any man or woman who is not your partner, that’s absurd, sinful and pervasive.
    Matthew 5:27-28-You have heard that it was said,’ Do not commit adultery.’ Verse 28 But now i tell you: anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed sin with her in his heart.
    This is talking about our minds and our thought parterns.Just by looking and thinking beyond the limits, undressing her in your thoughts and even wishing you were doing something with her, is sin the bible says. In masturbating you have images, pornography itself, that is more than just your thoughts and no one can justify and say that masturbation is not sin.
    Pornography is said to be a victimless crime yet its effects on women, children and marriage as a whole are adverse.
    We can and should not allow anyone irrigardless of who they are,to create false revelations and doctrine that contradicts scripture and God’s morale principles. It’s more important to check out and scrutinise/examine the lives of those who preach to us and speak into our lives.Remember, whoever speaks into your life, determines how far you go and what you become in life.
    So let us be careful.Whatever anyone says as long as it’s not scriptural and contradicts the bible, trash it and walk away from them.
    Know the lives of those who speak to you, who are they? Are they married, if so what is their marriage life like? How do they run the affairs of their families?
    When you check most of their lives, they are not usually with their families and their wives thus allowing these funny doctrines and so called revelations. Some of them even tell their female church members that if they have sex with the ‘’man of God to’’,’’service,’’ him, they will receive a blessing.
    They go on to say sexual sin is not so serious because a person only sins against his own body that there is even no need to repent of it. This is heart breaking because these people are seen to be authority figures with large followings and what they say is taken as gospel truth by the masses.

    That is why we can’t keep quiet on these matters of morality. Sin is sin and sin will be sin no matter how much we try to justify it. Some of these leaders will even give you some of these females in their churches that they have trained themselves and misled to to have sex, ‘’service ,’’you,’’ as a visiting preacher away from home even if you are married.

    Thats how most cults started. Let us be careful these are the last days and thank God He has a remnant for the end time ministry that will truly usher in the coming of Christ WITHOUT COMPROMISE.

  94. The wrath of man cannot bring about the righteousness of God.
    God created man with the feeling of sexuality, not to be ashamed of but to be celebrated. Satan makes people feel guilty about something that God does not worry about. That is why Satan glorified ‘celibacy’ as though those who are OUTWARDLY celibate are better than those who marry. Masturbation comes in all sorts of forms. 1. In a dream. How can one be sinning in a dream? 2. With pornography. This masturbation is wrong because it is a mind that is set to lust after another. 3. Physical process without images. Nothing wrong with that.
    Therefore, a Christian should RENEW his mind and not to be conformed to the world. The mind renewal has nothing to do with this is sin or not, it has to do with ‘setting your mind on things above.’

  96. the bible is clear its not everyone who says lord lord is a true son/man of God moreover the bible says in the last days many false prophets will arise why should we doubt that he is not one of them after such misleading statement, its not good to make people living in sin to feel good for their wrong doing simply because one needs to be popular, of cause them that are in it will be the followers of Chris but remember what the bible says in
    Jude 1:7Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. but it also says in
    luke 10:12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than
    for that city. open your eyes people.

  123. Much like a person who is an Alcoholic must avoid any kind of drinking like the plague, where others can drink with moderation and without sin, the same principle applies here.

    The question is..

    Can you in honesty, masturbate without sinning against the clear commands of Christ? If yes, then we are never told that the act is impure or forbidden. But let us be honest and admit that it is not easy to do if we are committed to avoid sexual sin.

    by Bunyuz on Feb 24, 2012 at 9:47 pm

  124. By very uncommon reasoning, what makes masturbation wrong is that it goes against the proper use of the faculty of human sexuality. Sexy is meant for mutual enjoyment; there is so much of mutual-self-giving to the other loved person involved in the practice of sex. No wonder people tolk of soul-ties. To who do you give yourself each time you masturbate? To noone; but rather use yourself to attain some pleasure. It is morally wrong to use a person for Your own individual pleasure; worse to use yourself. It is a very selfish act that defeats the whole purpose of human sexuality; mutual self-giving (sex is meant for this).

  135. Much like a person who is an Alcoholic must avoid any kind of drinking like the plague, where others can drink with moderation and without sin, the same principle applies here. So people might come to different conclusions concerning masturbation, and that is anticipated within our faith. Each man must live in holiness before the Lord in his/her own body, and this might mean different disciplines and personal leading in each case. What works for me or you… we should not impose on anybody else as a stumbling block.

    Rom 14:12-13 (NIV) So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling-block or obstacle in your brother’s way.

    The important thing is that we live holy before Him, and this is a matter that we should take very seriously. I assume this is why you are interested in this question, because you want to please God by avoiding any kind of sin. And when it comes to sexual sin in the thought-life, in our culture this is an easy temptation to fall into. So care and caution are appropriate as we consider these things and make choices before the Lord.

  136. Can you, in all honesty, masturbate without sinning against the clear commands of Christ? If yes, then we are never told that the act itself is impure or forbidden. But let us be honest and admit that it is not so easy to do if we are committed to avoid mental sexual sin.

    by Pastor Paul Wise Lumbu on Feb 25, 2012 at 11:04 am

  137. Is Masturbation a Sin?

    Today’s Question: Is Masturbation a sin?

    Carlos M.

    Bible Answer: Just recently I came across a passage of Scripture that seems to deal with masturbation.

    “‘When a man has an emission of semen, he must bathe his whole body with water, and he will be unclean till evening. Any clothing or leather that has semen on it must be washed with water, and it will be unclean till evening. When a man lies with a woman and there is an emission of semen, both must bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening. (Lev 15:16-18)

    Notice verse 18 deals with seminal emission during sexual intercourse, but verse 16 is speaking of a seminal emission that does not occur as a result of intercourse. If this is indeed a reference to masturbation, the matter-of-fact way in which God deals with this matter certainly indicates that no feelings of shame should be attached to it. He simply said, “Go take a bath.”

    It seems to me that if God were really bothered by such a practice, then He missed a teachable moment here in this passage. Since He clearly condemns sexual intercourse between men in Leviticus 18:22 and says “that is detestable”, I think that if He had really wanted us to avoid this particular practice, He would at least have said something like “That is disgusting” instead of “Go take a bath.”

    Masturbation has been around for a long time, and since God does not clearly condemn it, I would not be too bothered with it either. Masturbation is practice far more than adultery or fornication yet God is practically silent on the issue. This ought to tell you that God is not overly concern with it.

    However, let me caution you against addiction to masturbation. Just like most things, masturbation can turn into an addiction. If you find yourself constantly—several times a day—masturbating then you can be reasonably sure that you have a sexual addiction. Paul said, “‘Everything is permissible for me’—but I will not be mastered by anything” (1 Cor 6:12). This includes masturbation. Also, you should never use pornography to masturbate, and if you are married, keep your thoughts on your wife. It is the same sin to make love to your wife while thinking about another woman as it is to masturbate while thinking about another woman. Concerning single people, I have no advice other than a prohibition to pornography.

    If a believer uses masturbation to alleviate sexual temptation that’s far better than actually being tempted to commit fornication or adultery. I would rather have a man masturbate than go to a prostitute.

    Another thought, if masturbation is sinful, then you would expect there to be bad health consequences to it, such as found in adultery, homosexuality, and fornication (diseases for one thing). Instead, research has found that masturbation serves to release sexual tension. If a man is prevented from having sexual release, then the seminal fluids can back up, causing increased sexual tension and physical discomfort. It also increases the risk of prostate inflammation. This might explain why priests who practice celibacy and who view masturbation as sinful have a higher rate of prostate cancer.

    Since there are proven medical benefits to masturbation, it is difficult to make a biblical and reasonable case against it.

  140. Brethren, please be warned….when commenting on matters concerning Men of God such as Pastor chris or indeed many other men of God, we should all be careful not to make careless statements that will attract curses unto ourselves. If you do not heed this warning, do not cry when you are in trouble.
    about the matter at hand, you need Spiritual maturity to understand this topic. when you replay the clip Tumfewko has attached to this article. you will see that Pastor Chris is clear about this matter. Tumfweko should also attach a clip where Pastor’s views on homosexuality are clearly mentioned. thank you @Pastor Paul Wise Lumbu for your comments. the thing is we are so judgmental and have classified anything we do not like as Sin instead of seeking God’s word on such matters. Please start going for bible study and watch Pastor Chris’ teachings on love world television , better still start getting yourselves copies of the rhapsody of realities book which is all over Zambia. Stay blessed.

  151. Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
    3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. 4 Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

    7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

    9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.James 3:1-12

    I know your are a man of God and pliz ask God to lead you once again and preach on this sermon again.
    I am aware that this is not a sin but it is a sin because it makes the doer to be selfish with his/ her organs. God said we should use them for reproduction but if one is masturbating himself or herself is sinning because he is refusing to obey to what God said. Pliz really I know God will be with you in your second preaching.

    Masturbation is a sexual addiction just like sex itself. It is fueled by the bombardment of the mind by immoral pictures and scenes, and if the mind is polluted the Holy Spirit is grieved. It is no different from lust which Jesus describes as adultery.
    By the way the young man who asked the question like many others was nit told it was a sin ,his conscience convicted him against it. And the HolyGhost works with our conscience all the time,even when we do not get to know what the word of God says about any topic.
    The man of God said it was his body; not totally true,because 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 clearly states that our bodies are Gods Temple, “therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit,which are God’s”. The body of a child of God is not he’s but God’s. The body is to be presented as a living sacrifice to God, which is our reasonable service,Romans 12:1.
    The young man felt bad not by the devil but by the vonviction of the HolySpirit.
    We need to pray for aout spiritual leaders.

  161. Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm,Guys it is not your role to condemn the man of God, God has not appointed a spokesperson on earth,LEAVE THIS ISSUE ALONE!!!!!

  162. I think one characteristic of sin is that it depends on the one who thinks he has committed it. The Holy Spirit understand and knows all things and hence convicts us of sin for the purpose of leading us to repentance. To one it may be sin to another it may not depending on His conviction.
    whether habit or sin the young man thinks he does not like it and wants to come out. He did not ask for God’s stand on it. May be he found out that it may lead him to sin. If any part of your body will cause you to sin cut it out for it is better to go to heaven without that part than to have your whole body cast into hell

  165. This is strange to hear. let us not foreget scripture. “many will call me Lord, But very few will enter Heven”. Christ said ” If you look at a woman lustfully you have comited adultary”. To one who is comiting the act of masterbation, What gose in his mind is lust or ponographic issues. Let us not take this issue lightly. we might miss lead the weak. Sin is sin no two ways about it. When we stand to minister to people, let us speak the mind of God and not our minds. Let’s put to proper use the members of our body for it’s the temple of God.

  167. I am really surprised that many people are surprised at this man’s utterance. Jesus himself said that in the last days, wolves would come in sheep clothing to deceive the sheep. People who are JUST motivational speakers and not inspired by God’s spirit would say all sort of blasphemous things so as to make headlines and stay in focus. Col 3:5,6 says,”Mortify(deaden) therefore your members which are upon the earth as regards fornication, uncleanness….which is idolatry on account of those things the wrath of GOD is coming”. Those who people actually look up to are those leading humans from the creator. The common people can know God if only they take the bible, pray to God for his spirit to direct them and read it. Jesus said, “not everyone saying Lord, Lord would enter into the kingdom of God”. There is a small group who actually teach the truth, I shall not mention their name but from my research I have concluded that they teach truth based on the bible ONLY. it’s left for who is willing to ask God to guide him to true worshippers of his.

  168. shalom, todo hombre comete errores,no es razon por la cual debemos juzgar el hombre de DIOS,mucho cuidado,si no estamos deacuordo con esta enseñanza porque como todos creo que la masturbacion es un pecado,un insulto,una blasfemia contraJEHOVA DIOS,porque por este medio (la masturbacion)le dice a DIOS que la semilla que te dio para sembrar en tu mujer y que tengais hijos segun su voluntad no te sirve y que es un error de su parte…. Bien que debemos hacer:ORAR por el siervo de DIOS y perdir que el SEÑOR clarifique esto mediante su SANTO ESPIRITU.Se que es escandaloso una decleracion semejante,pero debos orar y no jusgar.
    Sigo creendo que pastor chris es un hombre de DIOS y le respeto no solo a el sino tambien la uncio que DIOS a deramado sobre su ministerio.

  169. Its like seperating the word from the holy spirit. All scripture was sinspired by the holy spirit. They go together. Neva inseperable. Is it possible 2 seperate ur body with the mind. Masterbation is sin period. The bible says ‘ who is fit 2 enter into d presence of the most high’ n the repl in dat verse is ‘ those who are clean in the body and mind’. Masterbating does not offer one as a holy sacrifice b4 God. It renders u with stains of sin and uncleanliness in mind. Brethren let’s not be mislead, the holy spirit as d bible says is a comforter and a teacher amongst many things. Wen jesus was leavin the earth , he told his disciples, u’ll know wat to do wen d holy spirit comes upon u. For those who are sincerely. Wanting honest biblical based answers, I say to u ‘ its a sin dat grieves the holy spirit and we crucify Jesus a second time everytime we steal, lie, kill, or even masturbate. God has a higher callin for us dan just sittin in our rooms and masturbating. That higher callin can trully be deiscovered only when we key in into wat the holy spirit is sayin. And trust me he won’t tell u to masturbate. Let’s not challenge God with our actions or deaden our ears to his voice nor our hearts to his voice. He who have ears , let him hear wat the spirit of God says. The 2nd coming of our lord is @ hand and let’s strive to be holy cos without holiness, no one can see God.

  170. Pastor Chris should be taken to a medical centre for check up. Nobody masturbate without thinking of the opposite sex. St. Paul said if u can’t keep your self, get married. Masturbation is a gate way to rape. Members of his church should not keep silent. Pastor Chris should step aside as a pastor. He is not a true follower of Jesus Christ

  172. The Bible mentions Masturbation when it talks about lasciviousness Please see (Mark 7:22, 2Cor. 12:21, Gal. 5:19, Eph. 4:19, 1Pet. 4:3, Jude 4) it means: 1. Given to or expressing lust; lecherous. 2. Exciting sexual desires; salacious…. Does the above definition look anything like godly?

  173. The reason you want to stop this is because of what you think it is,” he says. “You think there’s something wrong with this. Get this straight, in itself it is not a sin against God but satan uses it to oppress our minds to make us feel ineffective and inefficient in the things of God. God has got nothing to do with it, he is not offended by it unless it takes a hold of your mind.”

    I totally believe that masturbation is likened to lust because the doer might have lustered over a woman/man before s/he decided to masturbate. However, in some cases masturbation thoughts just develop in our minds. It is also true that such thoughts can lead to adultery, rape or fornication, but take notice of the last statement by Pastor Chris, he says “unless it takes a hold of your mind.” Now taking a hold of one’s mind is letting that masturbation go as far as commiting adultery, raping etc.
    But honestly I think masturbation and lust are two different things; a doctor once advised a friend of mine who suffered from backache to masturbate some times because he was single and thus had lived longer without having sexual intercourse. So does that mean when a person masturbates because of medical reasons…is that also a sin?

    by Amy on Apr 12, 2012 at 5:14 pm

  174. i think you guys are missing the point, masturbation in itself is not a sin, but the question is, what drives you to masturbate? it is the impure thought you have before doing it, that is a sin, for e.g, if you steal bread, it is a sin, it is not the eating of the bread that is a sin

  175. Am so cnfused,wat do we believe…only God cn put dis striaght.

    by Ojayjeffrey on Apr 26, 2012 at 3:59 pm

  176. If masturbation is nt a sin,why does it leave the doer wit a feel of guilt afterwards…why does it make one hav a sence of seperation frm God…4 me it weakens my spiritual life nd i cant go b4 God in prayer after masturbatin..so i tink it is a bad thing to MASTURBATE

    by my view on Apr 27, 2012 at 8:06 pm

  177. Wit due respect Pastor Chris, I express great disappointment. Nevertheles I pray for him & d countless millions who do not necessarily read bible on issues of consecration & holiness, dat God will set them free frm fleshy lusts & deliver dem from blindness. Psalm 66:18 declares, if I regard iniquity… God will not hear me. Pastor Chris should remember “let not your good be evil spoken of” Masturbation, homosexuality, solosexuality, bestiality, pornography, use of sex toys equal FLESHY LUSTS.

    by Pastor Mike Akwudi on May 6, 2012 at 3:01 am

  178. We love u Pastor chris and its not a sin,you are the man of GOD

  180. “I believe” Adam was at first made asexual,
    Able to enjoy sexual pleasure with himself, Able to reproduce by himself, (Gen 1:27)
    Certain birds can, certain fishes can, so why can’t he anyway?
    Yet, God saw Adam was alone; God didn’t see he’s unable to reproduce. (Gen 2:18)
    God did not create just “a child incubating machine” but a Help, meet for him. (Gen 2:20)
    God removed the feminine quality in Adam and made a woman of it. (Gen 2:21-22)
    Therefore a man is not permitted to enjoy sexual pleasure with himself
    Neither is he permitted to enjoy it with another man
    He is not permitted to enjoy sexual pleasure with an animal or any other thing.
    If he wants sexual satisfaction or desires to reproduce
    HE MUST GO GET A WOMAN!
    But what kind of woman can a man do this with?
    His mother, his grandmother, his biological sister, his fiancée, girlfriend, friend, WHO?
    She must be a woman with whom they have become one flesh, (Gen 2:23)……..

  181. Why wld u call Pastor Chris Oyakhilome a false prophet for saying masturbation, in and of itself is not a sin? If u were a student of Science & Tech, like me, u would have known that even babies in d womb masturbate and touch themselves. LOL! The righteousness or unrighteousness of an act is not determined by d act itself. It is determined from d real motive or reason behind d act. #GetSpiritualWisdom

    If u masturbate w/ lust or lustful tots in ur mind, and if u have made this a habit, then u may be hurting urself and welcoming “sin” into ur heart. But d case is different for, say, a man or woman who masturbates, thinking of or imagining having sex w/ his or her spouse. So, u see, my dear, 2 similar scenarios of ppl doing the same thing (outwardly) but w/ entirely different reasons or motives in mind. God judges them differently…

    I give another example: 2 men looking at a woman. One is thinking of ripping off her clothes, consuming her – lustfully – to lure her, and then to use her as a thing, or toy and then to dump her. On d other hand, d 2nd man looks at her as she walks by and allows true respect and admiration to well up in his mind. He thanks God for His wonderful creation and renews his commitment to ensure that women enjoy equal rights w/ men. Once again, we see 2 men, looking at the same woman but w/ totally different motives. God judges them differently… d act of “looking”, in and of itself cannot be regarded as a “sin”. The righteousness or unrighteousness of, “d act of looking” is not determined by d act itself. It is determined from d real motive(s) or reason(s) behind d act. #GetSpiritualWisdom

  182. For those who are casting stones at pastor Chris please think for a while. personally I was whaaat? but giving it a second thought I think Chris is spot on. He says masturbation ‘in itself’ is not a sin just like many others. it becomes a problem when we engage our conscious. Realize that for example if your conscious tells you that drinking some wine is sinful, you go ahead and drink it, definitely you commit sin and the opposite is true. Its the meaning we give into many life situations and circumstances that determine whether they are right or wrong. One man’s meat another man’s poison, so to speak. Having said that I still believe masturbation is wrong. A christian can masturbate without a feeling of guilty and get away with it but then when we get born a again and enter a personal relationship with Christ, get filled with the Holy Spirit then even without us realizing it we stop the bad old ways and get passionate with things that glorify Him.
    In this case pastor Chris behaved himself a scholar rather than a pastor, it was meaningless of him debating a complicated issue which does not contribute in the ultimate salvation of an individual but has far reaching implications in the congregation.

  191. Before we start critiicising, we need to understand the concept of sin? What is sin in the first place? What about married womaen who lick their husbands sex organs? Shall we refer to that as sin? Cos it’s masturbation… Now if a man steals bread and goes to eat it, where has he sinned? Is it the stealing if bread or the eating of bread? Of course! The stealing of bread is wrong.. But dat doesn’t make eating of bread a sin, does it? In a case like this, if God will help such a person he would not tell him to stop eating bread… But help to deal with him stopping stealing…now like we are all saying it’s obvious masturbation
    comes as a result if lust which leads to imagination and then to masturbation itself…
    And Jesus said if one luks lustfully at a woman, that person had already sinned in his or her HEART. Notice the lord didn’t just say the person has sinned but that he has sinned in the heart… So wat wud God do? Deals with the person heart… Pastor Chris said if it Gets hold on

    your mind, then it’s a sin against God… Why is he saying that? Cos in 1 John 3:20-21 the bible states;
    20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
    21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then
    have we confidence toward God. So if you masturbate and it holds your mind, then you lose confidence towards God and therefore it’s sin… It’s therefore correct if the man of God says it’s not a sin unless it Gets hold on your mind, he is absolutely right unless of course we are confusing right and wrong with sin…
