Which g sound do I use for Gehenna? I don't think it's that big of a deal to masturbate. I think there are very few people that are actually in hell.

It's Greek so hard g

Repent, heretic.

I hope you're right, but I wouldn't count on it. Do you think that just because it gives you assurance? Because that's a terrible and unbiblical way to get assurance.
Nothing in the bible specifically forbids it.
As for whether or not there are many in hell, I simply believe in a God more merciful than angry. I still believe that there is justice, but I just don't see a loving God punishing people forever. I have enough faith to know that I am going to be resurrected.
It may not be explicitly forbidden, but the Lord's stance on lust is much, much clearer. Lust and masturbation go hand in hand, and it's immensely difficult to completely separate the two. It's better for your own sake to show complete obedience and caution rather than trying to justify sin.
Do you guys think the end could ever justify the means? I'm not a Christian, but in my efforts of self-improvement I'm withholding myself from the consumption of any pornography. It's harmful psychologically and spiritually. My rule for myself is that I can masturbate as much as I want, but no porn is allowed. As a result, I've made far more progress easier than the Christians who try to drop it all at once. This is because the urge for release will come back, and the only way they know to deal with it is by porn. For myself, I am tearing away from that connection and dependence. The desire to masturbate is far lower because the whole dopamine processes of porn aren't there, and when I do give in I end up strengthening my abilities of visualization and focus. The goal here (for me) is to come to the point where my instinctual fulfillment of an urge is meeting IRL women, rather than looking at women on the internet and fantasizing about horrible things. Now I know that isn't what you guys want for yourselves, but you could use that instinct just the same to find a pious wife, and ultimately this practice would leave you in a far better state psychologically than porn addiction. It works for me, but is this practice acceptable for a Christian? It seems like it might be the only way in this society.
