Hey I'm a 16-year-old male from *********. I have just recently become Christian and I keep worrying that I'll do something foolish like say I'll sin once more (have sex once more) then I wont do it again. Sometimes I feel I have to do it and I'm having a really hard time trying to control it. I don't want to use Jesus so I can commit sin. I love God and know It hurts him but I just cant help myself sometimes. It's the same with masturbation. Tell me what you think I should do?

thank you for your time,

Name withheld:

Thanks for writing. It sounds like you are being tempted to sin and when you commit the sin you are asking for forgiveness. Of course, you should ask for forgiveness but you don't want to use this as a license to commit the same sin over and over. This sounds to be what you are concerned about.

The Bible does speak that we as Christians do have liberty, but we should not abuse our liberty to commit sin against God. Galatians 5:1, 13 says, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage...For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.”

The most difficult thing for anyone to do is to decide whether to live in the spirit or in the flesh.  Most people try, at least for a while, to live with one foot in each, but it does not work.  Galatians 5:17 says,   “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.”

Any time you have a sin in your life there are two things you must always do. One, ask the Lord to forgive you and to deliver you from that sin, and He will. Second, you must turn from that sin and stop flirting with it. If you continue to watch movies or television shows that are sexual in nature it is going to lead you right down that path again. If you continue to be in the presence of situations such as wild parties, bars or alone with your girlfriend in a compromising state you are going to leave yourself open to sin.

A new Christian requires a lot of guidance, especially at the beginning.  He must learn to get rid of portions of his life that cause him to sin.  Perhaps these things are not sins in themselves, but they lead to temptation and therefore to sin.

If you love the Lord you are going to have to turn away from the things that cause you to sin against Him. You may have to stop dating women until you have this problem under control. Or you may have to limit your time with women to a public place where you are not tempted to become sexually involved (you should do this anyway). This is a serious matter and should be taken serious. God does not take sexual sin lightly and neither should you.

The Bible says that if "thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire (Matthew 18:9)." Jesus didn't say that to hear Himself talk. He meant it as a serious warning to stay out of compromising positions that would lead you to sin against God. This should not be taken as that a person can lose their salvation. The problem with many today who have sought God for deliverance from an addiction is they continue to flirt or dabble with the addiction once they have been delivered. I'm not saying that this is the rule but many times it is.

As far as masturbation is concerned, don't let your mind wander into thinking or watching things that will cause you to do this. It's important that you make a conscientious effort not to watch, think or get involved with things that would trigger you to do this. You may have to give up television, movies and magazines. With sex rampant on the internet, you may have to get off the internet or find away to block pornography. And yes, it's that serious. Here is a passage of scripture to live by that will help you keep on track with your thinking. It's found in Philippians 4:6-9:"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you."

If you truly want to stay delivered from a sin, you must not dabble in the sin and resist all immediate urges to fulfill your lust. In fact, the Bible instructs us to flee youthful lusts and resist the devil (II Timothy 2:22, James 4:7). If you don't resist him (fight him), he will overpower your mind.  Only you can make that decision to change your life in this way and it isn’t easy. Do not be too hard on yourself if your first efforts meet with some failures. 

I hope this has helped you.
