Overcoming masturbation & homosexuality

Hi to all who are reading this. My name is Daniel, I'm 15 years old struggling with homosexual thoughts. Ever since I was little, like as far as in the fourth grade, I was always attracted to guys and never really had any desire for women. Once I hit puberty my attraction towards men sky rocketed and I started o masturbate and I ended up becoming addicted to it but thank God I stopped. I started looking at gay pornography ever since I was 10-12 years old and as I got older I viewed it more and more and more. Last Saturday I rededicated my life wholeheartedly to Jesus Christ and I haven't masturbated or looked at gay porn since. As of now I still have these homosexual thoughts racing through my mind. I mean, thank God I am now attracted to women and thank God I now desire to be with one, but I still cannot completely get rid of all these homosexual thoughts. I pray to God to deliver me from homosexuality and the addiction to masturbation, i rebuke all those homosexual thoughts in Jesus name, yet why haven't I been completely delivered from them? It's also a struggle to also overcome the addiction of masturbation. I just really need your help on this my fellow Christians. I ask that any of you reading this please pray for me to overcome homosexuality and this addiction to masturbation. Thank you and God bless you all!

Hi Danny

You obviously started masturbating early due to having access to the internet? I'm assuming now even at the young age of 15, you probably have viewed everything that could possibly be viewed related to homosexual sex? so you know what it's all about?

I hope at this stage in your journey you've only viewed and not participated. If you've never been with another guy, keep hold of that, GOD will help it stay that way.

The internet Danny is going to be a massive problem because you'll be able to view gay porn at any time and it's going to lead you to masturbate. The addiction is there because the images are easy to access them. The more you view it, the more you'll do it!

Even with masturbation, you can get fed up with it, as with viewing gay porn. But just like the dog returning to his vomit, the same with you. Just make sure your not in that 'mood' at the moment, of simply being fed up with masturbating. Place a picture of Jesus near your computer and focus on that picture when your on the internet, if you associate your computer with it being a means of material to masturbate with, re-install windows and over write everything that was there before. Start again, afresh, a new copy, a new you, and use the computer for other purposes that what your using it for now

Danny, your only 15, do you go out in your free time with friends? you need to occupy your mind with other things. Even as a gay man I can see the beauty in women and see why GOD made man to be with a women.

Tell GOD everything, he knows you, no matter how dirty or filthy you think what you've done get used to talking to GOD about it, the strength comes from you being truthful to GOD.

Just plod along now, don't let this become the centre of your life, have some fun with friends your age (including girls) and see if things start changing in your life.

You are not alone in this, but you can rise above it (though the thoughts may still persist). Remember that one can be effeminate without being homosexual. I am a retired social worker and have knowledge of the problem. Look up always!

Hello Daniel. Gold and silver are tested by the fire; likewise, I believe, God is testing you. Make Him proud and obey Him, keeping yourself without spot from the world, pure and holy, as He is pure and holy.

It is possible to overcome homosexuality, as Paul mentions some did in the New Testament. Fear God and obey Him. Fear of God is something that we can choose, and is the beginning of wisdom. You will still be tempted, but you are still young, and it is better to deal with this before you get older, when it will be much more difficult for you. Your sin will destroy you if you don't overcome it, but 1 John 5:4 tells us that what is born of God overcomes the world.

God wants you to learn to keep yourself in holiness from sexual immorality and from this world. Obey Him and you will have a good life.

I will pray for you.

Fight the good fight.

Shawn

Hi Daniel! I'm so glad to hear that you've rededicated your life to Christ, and that you're taking steps to get pornography out of your life.

I will certainly pray for you. And please don't be discouraged - being close to God doesn't mean that we will be freed from temptation. You may continue to experience homosexual urges, but they do NOT define you as a person (the only label that does is CHRISTIAN). And you may still desire to use pornography - but the more you say 'no' to that temptation, the less control it will have over your mind.

Keep staying close to God no matter what - He loves you immensely!

Your sister in Christ,
Jess

My brother. Keep fighting the good fight of faith. One day, when you finally overcome this you will do wonders for our Lord Jesus Christ and you will be able to reach out to so many people who face this same kind of problems. I thank God that he has begun working in you and helping you to overcome. I am happy for you. There are people that you can and will be able to reach that I just won't be able to because I have never been there. God sometimes allows us to go through certain things so that he can one say use us mightily for his cause. Put your hands in God's and he will work wonders in your life and through you, work wonders in the life of others.

Young Christian Brother, I believe that you will overcome your <staff edit> homosexual desires and have a beautiful sacred wife in Christs name. It is <staff edit> the great accuser (satan) who is tempting you with sodomy. Please stay true and <staff edit> fight satan's temptation of the male flesh <staff edit>.
<staff edit> God bless and I will pray for you to have a <staff edit> transformation <staff edit> to Christian and Godly values.
Amen

Good day, you are not alone in your struggle with sexual lusts. All of us who have sinful nature (or what the Bible called 'Flesh') are experiencing the same. The big difference between Christians and non-Christians is that Christians have Christ in their hearts and there is the provision of power to overcome and put to death all these sexual evil lusts and all other sins that resides inside us. The non-Christians do not have the Spirit of God living in them, that's why sin mastered them and committing all these wicked and sinful acts are natural things for them as eating or breathinig. The Book of Romans is the very clear explanation and definition of what Christian life really is. I suggest that you read this epistle many times, so you will understand that as Christians we have daily struggles against sin and temptations, but god provided us the provision of power and victory in the Person of the Holy Spirit who lives in us and empower us to live a holy life everyday.

One thing more, our mind is like a storage, or like a hard disk of a computer. Whatever we store in our mind will eventually dominate our thoughts and actions. If we fill our minds with garbage, like pornography in the internet, foul conversations with unbelievers, listening to worldly songs from worldly singers, then we will easily fall into temptations and sin. But if we fill our minds with the Word of God, meditate on it day and night, pray every moment of everyday, and sings songs of praise as the Holy Spirit prompts us any moment of every day, then we will eventually become like Christ, holy and pleasing to God.... Praise God, let us walk in the path of Christ in righteousness and holiness.

It's really actually comforting that everyone is so open with their struggles. God does want us to be transparent with one another. so this is good. just wanted to say that.
