  • What do you think are the sins males tend to fall into most easily?

    For me, its porn and masturbation.

    They call lust "every man's battle" for a reason. Our culture pushes those values aggressively.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

      You mean it is not tatting?
      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

        Add in also pride. Every man has to be THE MAN and we can't show any weakness. In dating and marriage, this can also lead to jealousy.

          I'm not even sure masturbation is a sin. It clearly is, if a guy is fantasizing about a woman or whatever that is not lawfully his, and having a sexual experience with it. And I suppose that would be the case most of the time. For the Christian who is involved in that sin, let him beware that the sexually immoral shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

            So GB, you're saying that Christians who masturbate to fantasies of other women, etc, are going to hell?

            No, I'm saying it is a serious sin that needs to be confessed to God and repented of. God takes all sin seriously, but sexual sin in particular seems to get called out for special consideration. Flee from it, says the Scripture. It's a trap. Satan has captured his most with that one, I'd say. It's like a drug, once you're an addict, it is hard to get free. But all things are possible with God. I wasn't trying to come down on anyone. Just want to see my brothers get free.

              All of them.

              Why would males have anything special? The difference seems to be less gender oriented and more socially-acceptable-to-acknowledge-and-discuss oriented.
              I'm not here anymore.

                Any and all of them.

                I'd say I fall into two sins, which, despite on the surface seem to be against each other, really aren't. I tend to go through life as if I were on an island (little interaction with the people around); and I often will collect data about a decision until analysis paralysis sets in--and I then do nothing. The former is poor relational skills, the latter is poor leadership. Both of which are rather important to being a man.

                  I appreciate your candor. thnx. I think all of us could reveal how far we miss the mark of being everything God would have us be, but it's just too embarrassing.

                    How do you understand "woman [...] that is not lawfully his"? A woman who belongs to someone else, or any woman that does not belong to him?
                    I think the latter is the case, but I'm not a very intelligent person, I probably missed something when I was reading the Bible.

                    On topic:
                    I think the top three would be lust, pride and anger. Not sure if exactly in this order.

                      It looks like Hell is going to awfully crowded, and then again Mark Twains Heaven.

                        " A woman not lawfully his" would refer to a woman outside of marriage. Lawful in the biblical sense---God's law.

                            If we'r going by the seven dedly sins it's definitly sloth for me. I like to spend time doing nothing on the computer, like rite now.
