Ashamed About Masturbation No More: The ABCs to Victory
happy Part 2 is the best way to launch this commentary. It is a definite response to those who appealed for help after my recent article, "'I'm Ashamed to Admit I Have a Problem With Masturbation.'"

One person expressed it this way: "I appeal for part 2. This area is epidemic-especially among men. Please don't leave us hanging. We need more info and real solutions!"

So that's exactly what we will do. Let's lay out a strategy for success.

If you haven't read the initial article, I encourage you to start by clicking here so you have a solid foundation for what follows. If you did read it, why not go through it once again. As Zig Ziglar said, "Repetition is the mother of learning."

The response generated by the commentary is no surprise. Ever since I wrote a book almost 40 years ago entitled Why Wait Till Marriage?, I've found issues related to sex draw lots of questions and attention. And that's a good thing so long as the answers come from sound, scriptural counsel.

Here's the deal: Those who are teachable and approach God for guidance in humility receive life-giving wisdom to bless their lives. Those who are prideful and twist the Scriptures for selfish reasons are resisted by God, don't progress and usually live defeated and depressed.

James 4:6 tells us, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Our Creator is not neutral towards the proud but opposes them. If there's one person in all the universe you don't want opposing you, it's Almighty God!

Proverbs 28:13 instructs us, "Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper (advance; go forward) but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy." read more
