Every day, billions of people bow down at the altar of self or solo sex.
At the slightest image played before the mind, a man is drawn into false sex in pretending to have sex with that “object.”
So a dual worship is taking place.
Worshipping a sexual object and worshipping you.
2 Timothy 3:2a
“For men will be lovers of themselves…”
Masturbation is the most difficult to break. Most men and women break the habit of porn easier than masturbation because of the self pleasures associated.
With the chemicals hitting the blood stream, and experiencing the pleasure drug dopamine, we see that we do not break self pleasure easily.
That’s why it takes the supernatural power of God, and a willingness to take charge of the mind and flesh to put to death or crucify the flesh and renew the mind with the Word of God.
“You shall have no other gods before Me.”
“Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.”
While this is speaking of homosexuals, masturbation is the beginning stages of homosexuality.
But notice what is worshipped?
“Professing to be wise, they became fools.”
In other words, when they appear intelligent, their intelligence is foolishness.
Smart but dumb.
Truth will insult.
For practicing male homosexuals, your penis is penetrating an anus. Or you are infected with HIV/AIDS and you deliberately have sex or bisexual sex and you knowingly infect your partner.
Or for solo sex, you keep watching porn and masturbating. No harm. Right?
That sad feeling is your conscience telling you that you’ve sinned against God and your body.
