Sex: Masturbation

Question
Does good Christianity allow for masturbation? I’m going through adolescence and I cannot stop masturbating. However, I am also a spiritual Christian and I wonder if God approves of it. In Matthew chapter 5 verse 30, it states, “if your right hand causes you to sin, you should chop it off, for it is better to have a part of a body rather than a full body thrown into hell.” I use my right hand to masturbate. Is Matthew telling me to chop it off, or is the verse to be interpreted differently? Thank you for answering my question.

Answer
Thanks for such open honesty. I am not aware that Scripture says anything directly about masturbation. However, I can tell you that the Scripture that you quoted from Matthew 5.30 has nothing to do with masturbation.

Masturbation often has to do with lust. So you might ask yourself the question of why you are masturbating. It’s tough to be in adolescence. Keep honest and open and God will see you through these years and hopefully many years to come.
