"...Masturbation can be a form of homosexuality because it is a sexual act that does not involve a woman. If a man were to masturbate while engaged in other forms of sexual intimacy with his wife then he would not be doing so in a homosexual way. However, any man who does so without his wife in the room is bordering on homosexuality activity, particularly if watching himself in a mirror and being turned on by his own male body."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/21...
Imagine that! Or maybe not... if it gives you a mental picture you can do without...
but really, without sounding like I have a "bromance" I LOVE MARK DRISCOLL !:]
This guy cracks me up! Now I don't agree with some of the stuff Mark concludes from the bible, but the topics Driscoll covers nails the contemporary bent, and he has MEGA fans!
Where would you expect to find edgy topics covered on any given Sunday (except maybe our Church), some of this stuff is "here and now" but most ministers would rather avoid it. I think that just opening a dialogue in front of God and everyone, is the best thing for these topics... some feel so condemned but they don't even know why...
when really the truth is designed to set us free!
Check it out for yourself !:]
