Which is a sin, to Masturbate or to become a Masturbator?

There are somethings it is a shame to talk about they in public. Not all teachings are for public consumption and this is what most Christians do not know. This is what the Apostle Paul said in

Ephesians 5:12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.

Masturbation is something that is done in secret and it is very shameful to even mention lest talk about in public.

I see masturbation just as wine, but wine can be talked of publicly but I don't think it is so for masturbation since it's very shameful. I don't see people drinking in secret but masturbation is something that is done in secret.

Masturbation whether is a sin or not is something that is very debatable since the bible do not make mention of it but talks about secret sin which I can include masturbation, but this is still debatable since the bible never made mention of these secret sins.

There's this question I often ask, how well can you talk or preach about masturbation if you yourself have not seen or done that before? Please let be truthful, masturbation is not something you can easily preach and go away, you must be ready to answer questions, that's what I think.

How can one associates masturbation with wine?

Pastor Chris of Christ Embassy once said something about masturbation and lots of pastors were saying is a heresy. This is what he said, Masturbation in itself is not a sin against God, then he continues to say that God is offended when one can't live without it, in this case when one becomes addicted to it. From these statements of the Pastor, I concluded that masturbation is just like taking wine. The bible does not forbid us from drinking wine, but it warns us of the dangers of wine.

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;



I don't know how you understand the scripture above, for me, what I understand is that, we ought to be wise when taking wine since it uses the word EXCESS. So the bible does not completely stop us from drinking wine. You can drink but use your mind, we don't drink wine because it makes us feel good but for a purpose. It also doesn't need to be a habit, because that's what makes it a sin. There are somethings about masturbation that tells whether if one masturbates is a sin or not but I won't talk about it here, I will only associate it with the taking of wine for now.
