Masturbation is not a sin – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

As many Nigerians had predicted, Nigerian Pastors have begun lambasting Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy over his comment that masturbation is not a sin against God but a mere habit that God is not angry about.

Since the controversial Chris Oyakhilome recently made the comments on masturbation, angry reactions have been pouring in from Christendom over what they called heresy, being preached by the pastor, which negates the words of God.

Pastor Chris was answering a question about how to overcome masturbation. He replied that:

“The reason you are thinking of stopping it (masturbation) is because you think it has become a habit for you… masturbation is not more than a habit than any other habit.

“So once you make up your mind that you want to break a particular habit, you just do it, you make up your mind… in fact the best way to break a habit is to replace it with another habit.

“There is one thing I would like to bring to your mind that may be of help to you because the reason you are thinking of stopping this is because of what you think it is.”

He further added that:

“No matter how wrong you think this is in your mind, get this straight, in itself, it is not a sin against God,”

He said that as a result of this belief that it is a sin, Satan used it to oppress people of God “making them feel ineffective and inefficient in the things of God.”

Reacting to Oyakhilome’s comment, the Prelate, Methodist Church Nigeria, Dr. Ola Makinde said there was only one way of having sex permitted by God in the Bible, which is only through marriage.

“There is only one way of having sex in the Bible which is natural. Masturbation is unnatural and unethical. Whatever is unnatural and unethical is abomination. I leave him to his own opinion,” he said.

According to Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly, every believer must be able to subject his body to control because it could lead to something else.

Popular Evangelist, Pastor Akin Fasawe said Masturbation is a sin as stipulated in the Bible, saying that death was even recommended in the Bible for those who practiced such things.

“Masturbation is a sin because when you masturbate, you will release. If the minister of God said masturbation is not a sin, he can easily tell his church that fornication is not a sin. The Bible recommends death in the Old Testament,” he stated.

According to Primate Elijah Ayodele of the INRI Evangelical Church, it is stated clearly in the Bible that masturbation is a sin against God.

“That is his own view. Where did he see it in the Bible that masturbation is not a sin? Maybe he has his own Bible. It is a bad thing. Maybe it is in his Bible,” he laughed.

Pastor Akin Akande of the Men of Purpose Ministry stated that masturbation is a sin.

“It is like abusing the gift of God. It is heresy. The Bible says it is a sin to derive pleasure outside the content of marriage,” he added.

Pastor Leke Akinola of the Upper Room Baptist, said self-induced masturbation is a sin against God and that it is heresy for any minister of God to say it is not a sin.

According to Rev. Sam Ogedengbe, “masturbation is a sin and it is unbiblical. It is demonic and anyone engaging in it should know that it has spiritual connection.”

Reacting to the issue, majority of InformationNigeria readers indicated that they did not support Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s view on masturbation through their comments on an earlier article on the Oyakihilome’s statements. http://www.informationnigeria.org

  1. Can I simply jhst say what a comfort to discover a person that actually knows what they are discussing over
    thee internet. You definitely know how too bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people have to look at this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you most
    cerainly have the gift.

  2. Yeah, stapletonrc,

    We sure “are in a race and have to keep a steady pace to the finish line”, and as for the argument, it sure is, “a spiritual act and not a psychological one. Besides, they are ‘fantasizing’ about women!” A bunch of spiritual ignoramuses, pastored by the same!!!!

  3. It has been my experience when a pastor is living in error, it comes out of his mouth at times. It matters not the white suits his holy demeanor, something is not right! Years ago, my pastor was very friendly towards everyone and other invited others for fellowship. After the fact, he later began to tell my roommate that it was okay to masturbate but he had to think about his wife only. I took issue with this because I came out of a life of perversion in the worse way. I also knew that something was not right with the pastor. His behavior changed. He stopped being friendly and would not allow anyone into his home. He later started taking money that was not his and purchased him a home. One thing led to another. I do not always believe where there is smoke, there is fire. I believe that where there is smoke, you better go and investigate it. These t.v. ministers are all the same and drink out of the same cup. The largest Christian ministry in the world TBN is father to most of them worldwide. Those ministers who come under his banner follow TBN’s demonic teachings. Those who refused to comply were discontinued and vilified. It is time to focus on Jesus, but most of us still stuck on man. We have the Holy Ghost and do not need anyone speaking contrarily to him. It is unfortunate, but many will not listen to the Spirit but embrace teachings like this and are mislead. The argument is “It is a psychological act and not a spiritual one. Besides, they are not fantasizing about women.” I will not get into foolishness, but it is a sexual act nonetheless. This controls millions of folk and lead them down the road to greater oppression. It happened to me and took me places in Satan that I never anticipated going. Even to this day, I have not fully recovered. Don’t worry about this preacher or any other, for we are in a race and have to keep a steady pace to the finish line.

  4. Mkandya, kwa kiasi fulani nimekuelewa vizuri sana. Yaani hiyo Punyeto inapokuwa ‘involuntary’, hiyo pamoja na wetdreams ndiyo nimevifananisha na hali ya ‘kikojozi’ maana uwajibikaji katika jambo hilo huwa haupo, ndio maana nikasema watu wa jinsi hiyo wanahitaji kumuona tabibu maana hizo ni disorders katika mwili. Na katika hili nami nakubaliana nawe kuwa hawawezi kuhesabiwa dhambi katika jambo ambalo wao wenyewe watakuwa wanamlilia Mungu awaondolee karaha hiyo!

    Lakini mtu mzima wa afya aliyekomaa, si hao watoto wa vyuo ambao wengi wangali katika foolish age, halafu huyo aliyekomaa, tena unasema ni huyo aliyeukiri wokovu, halafu wakati mkewe yuko katika siku zake, ndipo kwa mnyeregesho alionao, mke anamsaidia mumewe kupiga punyeto!!! Sijawahi kusikia mzaha wa wokovu kushinda huu, maana huu unauzidi hata ule mzaha wa Siyi anaofundisha kuwa sabato ndio muhuri wa Mungu! Yaani mtu aliyeokoka hana hata uwezo wa kuvumilia wimbi dogo la mnyeregesho, basi Mungu atakuwa amewaonea iwapo atawaadhibu hao wasio okoka kwa kosa hilo!

    Huo ndio mtazamo nilionao kuhusu jambo hilo as far as Kutakaswa kunavyohusika kwa huyo aliyeokolewa. Labda unishawishi vinginevyo!

  5. Lwembe hao walikuwa wanafunzi wa chuo na wengine sekondari.

    Sijui unapouliza kama alikuwa mwalimu wa kike unataka kuibua hoja gani. Lakini pointi ni kwamba ‘tension/panic au tuseme kwa kiswahili mfadhaiko ndicho kitu kilichowapata hao watu, ni mazingira ambayo mtu hawezi kuwa na nafasi ya kumtamani mtu.

    Ndio maana hata suala la wetdreams si kila mtu hupatwa na hisia za mahaba ndipo atoe shahawa akiwa usingizini, kama Kinyau alivyosema huko nyuma, lakini wakati mwingine huwa ni panic tu fulani mtu anakuwa anaota, eg labda mtu anaota kaachwa na basi, kapoteza labda pesa, kafeli mtihani, nk. Yaani kitu ambacho husababisha namna fulani fulani ya mfadhaiko na kisha mtu huyo hujikuta ametoa shahawa.

    Kuna wengine kweli huota ndoto za mahaba, eg labda kaona mwanamke yuko uchi, au anaota analala na mwanamke nk

    Kitu ambacho mimi nakikataa kabisa ni kule kusema kuwa kila anayefanya masturbation ati ni lazima awe na picha ya mwanamke kichwani mwake,hiyo si kweli.

    Halaf pia huwezi sema kuwa masturbation ni dhambi kwa sababu ati ni kufanya mapenzi unnatural. Na kama ni dhambi kwa sababu mtu lazima awe na picha ya mtu fulani akilini mwake, vipi kama picha hiyo ni ya mke wake, kosa linakuwa wapi hapo?

    Mimi nasema hivi ni mbaya tu ikiwa mtu atamtamani mtu fulani( asiye mkewe) kisha akaamua ku-masturbate kwa ajili yake, au atajinyegeresha kwa kuangalia mikanda ya ngono, na mengine yenye kufanana na hayo. Hiyo ndio namna inayoweza kuingia kwenye neno la Yesu kwamba kila amtazamaye mwanamke….amekwisha zini naye moyoni mwake.

    Kwa hiyo si sawa kusema masturbation ni dhambi moja kwa moja, basi mtasema hata kutamani ni dhambi moja kwa moja.

  6. Mkandya, hao waliopatwa na “mnyegeresho”, na kisha kupikicha sehemu zao za siri, walikuwa ni wanafunzi wa darasa gani, la nne? Au walikuwa ni wanafunzi wa chuo? Tena, walijuaje kuhusu kupikicha sehemu zao za siri? Yaani kuambiwa “bado saa moja” tu, mnyegeresho juu! Aliyewatangazia alikuwa mwalimu wa kike? Au ni wagonjwa wa akili hao??? Jaribu kutafiti, huenda wanahitaji huduma ya kitabibu!

    Pia Mkandya, ejaculation na masterbation ni vitu viwili tofauti katika jinsi ya uwajibikaji! Kwahiyo ni vizuri “Wapiga Punyeto” ukawatofautisha na vikojozi!

  7. Past Divine, u are doing the very thing that u caution us not to do, ”teach our own opinions as the truth of God”

    What you have commented here is just your own opinions, no scriptural substance that you have shown that masturbation under whatever circumstances is sin .

    As u recommend that Past. Chris should consider more spiritual researches, can u please present here the spiritual researches that yourself have done concerning this?

    Thank u!

  8. Sikuwahi kuishiriki hii mada,
    Lakini nimepitie michango ya wapndwa wengi kwa uzuri.

    Nilichojifunza ni kwamba wapendwa wengi kama ilivyo kawaida yao ni kukurupuka kuanza kuongea hata kwa vitu ambavyo hawana rejea ya kueleweka kwenye maandiko. Na wengi hujikuta wanaongea yale waliyofundishwa katika dini zao tu.

    Ukweli nni kwamba hakuna hata mpendwa mmoja ambaye amethibitisha kimaandiko kuwa punyeto ni dhambi.Wengi wametumia nguvu nyingi kulazimisha tu kuwa ni dhambi.

    Na kwa bahati mbaya wengi pia wamemsema vibaya mtumishi wa Mungu Chris bila hata kuwa na tahadhari yoyote kuwa kumnena vibaya inaweza ikawafanya wajibu siku moja, utadhani wao wana uhakika wa 100% kuwa punyeto ni dhambi.

    Mimi nilishawahi kuwauliza wanandoa waliookoka kama huwa wanafanya punyeto. Waliniambia hivi: kwa mfano mke wako akiwa kwenye siku zake, anaumwa, amejifungua nk, ilmradi hayuko katika nafasi ya kufanya mapenzi punyeto hufanyika,tena hufanywa kwa msaada wa huyo mke.

    Ushahidi mwingine ninaoujua kuhusu mtu kufanya punyeto bila nia ya dhambi ni wakati wa wanafunzi shuleni na vyuoni kufanya mitihani.

    Rafiki zangu wawili tukiwa shuleni waliwahi kusema yafuatayo; wa kwanza alisema kuwa alipomsikia mwalimu anasema ”bado saa moja” na wakati huo yeye amefanya swali moja tu kati ya matatu, alipaniki na kusikia mnyegeresho mwilinu mwake ambao ulimfanya ajikute anapikicha sehemu zake za siri na kujikuta shahawa zinatoka.

    Wa pili yeye alisikia hali kama hiyo kiasi cha kushindwa kuendelea na mtihani, ndipo alipoamua kukimbilia toilet na kujichua kisha mkazo wa akili ukamwacha akarudi kuendelea na mtihani.

    Swali ni je walifanya hivyo wakiwa na picha ya wanawake ( fantasy) fulani akilini mwao? Kwa jinsi mazingira yalivyo jibu ni hapana. Kwa hiyo punyeto si lazima mtu awe na picha ya mtu fulani kichwani ndipo ifanyike.

    Ukiangalia sasa majibu ya watu wengi kuwa kwa nini ni dhambi,utagundua vitu vitatu kimsingi.

    1. Ni dhambi kwa sababu unatoa/unamwaga shahawa kwa njia isiyo ya asili (yani bila kufanya mapenzi na mkeo)
    2. Ni dhambi kwa sababu kila anayefanya punyeto lazima awe na picha ya mwanamke fulani kichwani/mawazoni mwake (fantasy).
    3. Ni dhambi kwa sababu unamwaga chini mbegu ( utadhani wao wakati wa tendo la ndoa na wake zao mbegu zote huenda ndani)

    Majibu haya yote hayana ukweli wowote zaidi ya dhana za kufikirika. What if mtu anafanya punyeto huku anamfikiria mke wake aliyefariki au aliye mbali naye, dhana ya kufanya punyeto ukiwa unawaza mwanamke fulani inatafsirika vipi hapo?

    Mimi sioni kama pastor Christ au Steve kakosea kitu hapo.
    Punyeto inaweza kuwa dhambi kama tu zilivyo dhambi kama ulafi, ambayo hutokana na kukosa kujitawala katika suala la kula. Si kila punyeto ni dhambi na si kila punyeto si dhambi.

    -Ila kufanya punyeto kwa kumtamani mtu fulani moyoni mwako kweli ni dhambi

    -Au kufanya kwa kuangalia picha za ngono ni dhambi kweli

    Millinga hongera kwa kuleta hoja zenye mashiko ndani yake,ambazo haziko katika dhana ya za kufukirika,bali kwenye uhalisia.

    Bless u all!

  9. Masturbation is against the real plan of God for sex, it is negating and denial of the real natural pleasure God intended to be got out of sex, so it is displeasing to God and thus a SIN which kills its victim slowly by slowly first by killing the conscious and finally the entire man disconnecting the man’s spirit and the soul and finally the body impaired. I hope Pr Chris whom i surely respect as a servant of God as per this his point of view is heretic and should considers doing more spiritual search. AND TO MY FELLOW MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL, let us be mindful not to teach our own opinions as the truth of God.

  10. Nimeyasoma maelezo aliyoyatoa pastor Steve, nikiwa nje ya boksi! Kimsingi jambo hili la punyeto hakuna mahali lilipotajwa katika Maandiko, hilo ni kweli kama alivyolitafiti. Kwamba hilo halimo katika Maandiko hiyo ni changamoto kubwa sana. Mtazamo tunaoyatazamia Maandiko huiongeza changamoto hiyo na kutuleta katika  hali kama tuliyonayo katika mjadala huu. Na kubwa zaidi, kutupa fursa ya kuliangalia jambo kwa kina katika Maandiko tukisemezana nayo, eeh, ni upendeleo kiasi gani tuliopewa; twapaswa kumshukuru sana Mungu!!!

    Kwa wale walio katika dhana ya kwamba “Punyeto Si Dhambi”, wamejihakikishia hilo kwa kuyakagua Maandiko, ni kweli katika orodha ya dhambi halimo, nimeona hata pastor akiainisha jinsi ambavyo hakuna dhabihu ya dhambi iliyotolewa kwa wale waliojikuta katika hali hiyo bali walipaswa kujitakasa tu. Lakini, huo ni mtazamo wa pastor pale alipojaribu kuzitazama hali zilizoshahibiana na punyeto, akizivinjari dhana tofauti tofauti  zinazo ziadhimisha hali hizo kuwa punyeto, naye akizikosoa kutoka kuifanya ni dhambi na akizileta katika masuala ya Usafi unaoambatana na ibada, hivyo akitamatisha kwa hitaji la kujisafisha na si kulazimika kutolea dhabihu ya Dhambi iliyohitaji Damu, maana si dhambi! Mtazamo huu nadhani ndio uliompelekea pastor Chris kufundisha jambo hili la punyeto kuwa si dhambi, akijua fika kuwa hakuna Andiko la kuthibitisha kuwa ni dhambi. Na wale wenyekutumia mfano wa Onani, huunukuu kwa makosa maana hauhusiani na punyeto. 

    Lakini, kwa wenye kuiona punyeto ni dhambi, mimi nadhani katika mijadala kama hii ambayo watu wako makini kutaka kuona ushahidi wa ki Maandiko katika kujenga au kutetea hoja,  tupunguze jazba na kupersonalise issues ili kuwa na wasaa wa kuingalia hoja na kuiendea katika Nuru ya Maandiko, ndipo twaweza kupata kitu cha kutusaidia katika maamuzi yetu safarini. 

    Basi, tukirudi katika mada, labda kabla ya kuendelea nadhani tukiliangalia tena hili neno katika jinsi yake lilivyo, twaweza kupata mwanga zaidi, haswa “tukiwa nje ya boksi” kama alivyoshauri ndugu Millinga!

    Haya, natuliangalie neno lenyewe tuone linavyojitafsiri ili tujihakikishie ni nini ndipo tumuulize Roho Mtakatifu kama naye alikuwa halijui kama akina pastor Chris na wenzake wanavyotuhakikishia! MASTERBATE: Stimulate one’s genitals for sexual pleasure. Au kwa tafsiri ya kawaida; PUNYETO: kujiamsha hisia kwa kuvichezea viungo vyako vya siri ili upate starehe ya ngono. 

    Sasa kulingana na tendo la ngono, hilo huhitaji watu wawili. Ndio kusema mpiga punyeto yeyote yule hulazimika kuvuta hisia za mtu fulani na kumleta katika mawazo yake katika namna anayomfikiria na hapo ndipo ashiki huamshwa naye huvichezea viungo vyake mwenyewe kimwili, lakini kiroho huwa na huyo aliyemvuta! Sijui kiulinganishi, wamekosaje hawa wahubiri kuliona hilo la punyeto katika lile Andiko lihusulo Uzinzi kama alivyolimagnify Kristo pale aliposema mtu akimtazama mwanamke kwa kumtamani, amekwisha kuzini nae! Punyeto sio ejaculation. Mpiga punyeto anaweza aka ejaculate mwisho wa mchezo wake au akatoka mkavu lakini amemaliza shughuli yake na msongo kumuondoka!  Mmeelewa wapendwa? Wapiga punyeto wote wana kesi za kujibu za Uzinzi waliofanya! Kama una mawazo ya kimwili itakubidi ukaishi enzi za agano la kale maana huku sasa hivi ni Agano Jipya, la mambo ya Rohoni, ndio maana unasikia sana mambo ya Roho Mtakatifu tofauti na huko nyuma! Hivyo basi, mpiga punyeto atakuwa chini ya utawala wa pepo wachafu ambao humsonga na kumsukuma katika kitendo hicho chenye kumdhalilisha! Adhabu ya uzinzi ni Kifo, kwa leo ni cha kiroho, ndio maana wengi wetu tunaendelea tu!

    Jamani tukaeni sawa, Maandiko hayajasaza kitu. Hawa mapastor wengi wanatuletea mambo yao waliyosoma vyuoni wakiamini wamefuzu Biblia, hao hapo wanakwambia punyeto haijazungumziwa kwa hiyo si dhambi. Kwa hiyo usipoliona jambo katika Biblia basi si Dhambi, ni wapi ilipoandikwa hivyo?? 
    Wamechemkaa !!!

    Tubarikiwe soote!

  11. Mpendwa,

    Kwa kuwa madaktari nao wanafanya kazi ya Mungu kwa upande mmoja, naomba nikushirikishe mtazamo wao kuhusu “masturbation”. Hata hivyo, naomba usinifikirie kwamba nina msimamo kama wa madaktari. Elewa kuwa utafiti wao huenda usiukubali wala usilingane na Msimamo wako kiroho na kimaandiko. Hata hivyo jilazimishe kuyasoma maoni yake yaliyotokana na utafiti wake wa kina.

    MASTURBATION PREVENTS CANCER IN MEN.

    By Dr Chris Hiley, From The Prostate Cancer Charity

    Men could reduce their risk of developing prostate cancer through regular masturbation, researchers suggest.

    They say cancer-causing chemicals could build up in the prostate if men do not ejaculate regularly. And they say sexual intercourse may not have the same protective effect because of the possibility of contracting a sexually transmitted infection, which could increase men’s cancer risk. Australian researchers questioned over 1,000 men who had developed prostate cancer and 1,250 who had not about their sexual habits. They found those who had ejaculated the most between the ages of 20 and 50 were the least likely to develop the cancer. The protective effect was greatest while the men were in their 20s. Men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life.

    Fluid

    Previous research has suggested that a high number of sexual partners or a high level of sexual activity increased a man’s risk of developing prostate cancer by up to 40%. But the Australian researchers who carried out this study suggest the early work missed the protective effect of ejaculation because it focussed on sexual intercourse, with its associated risk of STIs. Graham Giles, of the Cancer Council Victoria in Melbourne, who led the research team, told New Scientist: “Had we been able to remove ejaculations associated with sexual intercourse, there should have been an even stronger protective effect of ejaculations.”

    The researchers suggest that ejaculating may prevent carcinogens accumulating in the prostate gland. The prostate provides a fluid into semen during ejaculation that activates sperm and prevents them sticking together. The fluid has high concentrations of substances including potassium, zinc, fructose and citric acid, which are drawn from the bloodstream.
    But animal studies have shown carcinogens such as 3-methylchloranthrene, found in cigarette smoke, are also concentrated in the prostate.

    ‘Flushing out’

    Dr Giles said fewer ejaculations may mean the carcinogens build up. “It’s a prostatic stagnation hypothesis. The more you flush the ducts out, the less there is to hang around and damage the cells that line them.” A similar connection has been found between breast cancer and breastfeeding, where lactating appeared to “flush out” carcinogens, reduce a woman’s risk of the disease, New Scientist reports. Another theory put forward by the researchers is that ejaculation may induce prostate glands to mature fully, making them less susceptible to carcinogens. Dr Chris Hiley, head of policy and research at the UK’s Prostate Cancer Charity, told BBC News Online: “This is a plausible theory.”

    She added: “In the same way the human papillomavirus has been linked to cervical cancer, there is a suggestion that bits of prostate cancer may be related to a sexually transmitted infection earlier in life.” Anthony Smith, deputy director of the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University in Melbourne, said the research could affect the kind of lifestyle advice doctors give to patients. “Masturbation is part of people’s sexual repertoire. “If these findings hold up, then it’s perfectly reasonable that men should be encouraged to masturbate,” he said.

    Ni matumaini yangu kuwa umeelewa utafiti huo. Biblia inasemaje kuhusu mada hii, nadhani wapendwa wengi wameshasema hapo juu. Kama jambo unaona linakupa utata kiroho naomba usije ukalifanya KAMWE.

    Jifunze kuishi kwa kufuata kiwango ulichonacho cha Maandiko na Imani. Kadri mtu anavyomwelewa Mungu na Maandiko yake ndivyo anavyotarajiwa kumpendeza Mungu pia. Usifuate mkumbo wa wengi kuhusu jambo ambalo hujalielewa kwa kina.

    Ubarikiwe zaidi kiroho, kimaandiko na kiimani.

  12. TAHADHARI WAPENDWA,

    Kama nilivyodokeza awali niko hapa kutaka tujifunze kwa pamoja Neno la Mungu. Kwa kuwa huwa kuna kipindi tunawakubali madaktari, nimeona niwashirikishe mtazamo wa baadhi ya Madaktari wa afya zetu wanasemaje kuhusu “masturbation” hasa kwa wanaume. Narudia kusema kwamba hii haina maana nataka kuwahimiza watu wafanye tendo hilo ila nataka tujifunze kwa kina. Naomba pia kila mtu aendelee na msimamo alionao kuhusu mada hii huku akiendelea kujifunza kila iitwapo leo bila kujidhania kwamba umekwishafika mbinguni.

    Yafuatayo ni maoni ya Dokta Chris Hiley na siyo lazima yafanane na maoni yangu katika mada hii kiroho wala kiimani. Aidha, siyo lazima ukubaliane na mtazamo wake wala kuufuata, bali jifunze tu.

  13. Wapendwa,

    Kutokana na mitazamo ya wapendwa wengi hapa hasa katika mada hii, nilisema awali kwamba mimi sina upande ninaoegemea. Mada hii ni ngumu sana. Inakuwa ngumu kwangu kama zilivyo mada nyingine zenye kuhitaji uelewa wa maandiko na uongozi wa Roho Mtakatifu kabla ya kuanza kuwahubiria watu.

    Inakuwa siyo vizuri kukurupukia mada fulani na kuanza kuwafundisha watu kwamba swala fulani ni dhambi tena ukasisitiza kisha baada ya siku kadhaa ukasikika tena ukisema swala fulani siyo dhambi. Tatizo hili huwakumba watumishi wengi sana. Wanakuwa na msimamo mkali kabisa juu ya swala fulani kuwa ni dhambi mbele za Mungu lakini muda ukipita huwasikii tena au unakuta wamebadilika mtazamo.

    Mifano ipo michache hapa naomba niitaje. Kanisa la Tanzania liliwahi kuwa na msimamo mkali kuhusu nywele za bandia (wigs) kwamba Mkristo kuvaa wig ni dhambi. Siku zimeenda sana na kwa nyakati za sasa ni nadra sana kusikia wachungaji wakiwakemea waumini wao wasivae wigi vichwani mwao.

    Mfano huo hapo juu unaendana pia na mtazamo wa kujipaka wanja, kukalikiti nywele, kupaka lipsticks, kujichubua, nk. Sasa hivi ni kama yote haya yameshabarikiwa na makanisa ya kiroho. Kama kuna wahubiri wanaokemea hayaa basi Mungu awabariki. Inawezekana wamejifunza maandiko zaidi wakagundua kwamba SIYO DHAMBI HIVYO KILA MWANAMKE NA AFANYE KWA KIASI, YAANI UWE NA KIASI USIZIDISHE.

    Mfano wa mwisho kwa leo ni hili swala la mwanamke kuvaa suruali. Makanisa mengi kwa sasa hayawakatazi wanawake kuvaa suruali kama ilivyokuwa miaka ya 1990 hadi miaka ya 2000. Mimi wakati nasali kanisa la KLPT Dar nakumbuka mchungaji wetu alivyokuwa mkali sana. Lakini ilipofika miaka ya 2005 mchungaji aliwaacha rasmi wanawake wavae suruali ila wasivae zinazowabana. Hali hii imeruhusiwa makanisa mengi.

    Kwa kusema haya naomba nisieleweke kwamba natetea ukengeufu wa Imani na Maandiko, LA HASHA. Nachotaka kusema hapa ni kwamba tuwe na tabia ya kujifunza kwa undani maandiko, hasa swala linaloonekana kuwa na mjadala mpana au mrefu baina yaa watumishi wenyewe kwa wenyewe.

    Kama mtumishi fulani wa Mungu ameonesha msimamo wake hadharani juu ya mada fulani, natamani wapendwa wengi tufanye uchunguzi wa kina kuhusu mada hiyo, tukijiuliza ni kwa nini watumishi wa Mungu wawe na mtazamo tofauti. Mbona maswala mengine au dhambi zingine watumishi wote wanakubaliana, inakuwaje mada fulani watofautiane.

    Tufanye hivyo kwa nia njema wala siyo kuoneshana misimamo yetu bali kama wachambuzi wa HOJA tukisaidiwa na maandiko na bila kwenda nje ya mktadha wa maandiko au mada.

    Napenda niwahakikishie wapendwa wote wanaofuatilia mada hii kwamba mimi NAMPENDA SANA YESU ALIYENIOKOA TOKA DHAAMBINI. NAMPENDA SANA YESU WANGU, NAYAPENDA SANA MAANDIKO. NIKO HAPA KUJIFUNZA ZAIDI. Mada amabayo huwa sijaifanyia utafiti wa kina huwa sitoi maoni yangu kabisa. Katika blogi hii wengi wanaonifahamu watagundua kwamba siyo kila mada ninayochangia maoni yangu. Hii inatokana na kwamba mimi sijui kila kitu. Kwa mfano kuna mada inayoendelea kuhusu ni TUNDA LIPI HAWA NA ADAM WALIKULA. Mada hii kwangu ni ngumu sana ndiyo maana hutakuata nimetoa maoni yangu sana. Maana kuna mambo huwa najifunza kwanza toka kwa wapendwa wengine.

  14. Wapendwa hebu someni mtazamo wa huyu pastor maelezo yake hapa chini. Nadhani kuna watu wananielewa vibaya hapa. Mimi siko hapa kutetea dhambi. HATA KIDOGO. NIKO HAPA KUJIFUNZA MAANDIKO. Kama kuna mtu ananiona hivyo, naomba kwa kauli yangu hii afute mtazamo wake. Baada ya kusema hayo naomba watu wasome maelezo yafuatayo yaliyotolewa na Mchungaji mmoja kuhus kujichua au masturbation….
    Unaposoma maelezo hayo ukumbuke kwamba siyo lazima yafanane na msimamo wangu kuhusu mada hii. Hebu soma ukiwa nje ya sanduku ulilolomo.

    IS MASTURBATION A SIN?
    By Pastor Steve Van Nattan and Richard Anthony
    ________________________________________
    This topic promises to get me into trouble🙂 Nevertheless, here it is.
    It is customary for those who write books for teens and youth to caution them against masturbation. Beyond this, many will even find a way to say it is a sin. So, what does the Bible say on masturbation? There is virtually nothing said in the Bible about masturbation.

    Abuse of the Bible on the Subject
    This is practically the only text used against masturbation.
    Genesis 38:9-10
    Genesis 38:9-10, “And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.”
    This text cannot be applied to masturbation, because Onan was having sex with a woman at the time, not by himself. In this passage, Onan rebelled against the direct command of his father in Genesis 38:8, “And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.” Onan displayed contempt towards both his dead brother and his wife. Indeed, this was evil in the eyes of the Lord, “therefore He killed him” (Genesis 38:10).
    The whole context is in regard to a man trying to engineer which of his wives will give birth to the first son and thus the heir (Deuteronomy 25:5-6). Onan displeased God in that God did not want his people manipulating His sovereignty. The point is not wasting the “seed,” the point is about cruel control of destiny, degrading of the wife, and disobeying a direct command of God.
    Here is what Adam Clarke’s Commentary says on this passage:
    Verse 9: “Onan knew that the seed should not be his.” That is, that the child begotten of his brother’s widow should be reckoned as the child of his deceased brother, and his name, though the real father of it, should not appear in the genealogical tables.
    Verse 10: “Wherefore he slew him also.” The sin of Onan has generally been supposed to be self-pollution; but this is certainly a mistake; his crime was his refusal to raise up seed to his brother, and rather than do it, by the act mentioned above, he rendered himself incapable of it. We find from this history that long be fore the Mosaic law it was an established custom, probably founded on a Divine precept, that if a man died childless his brother was to take his wife, and the children produced by this second marriage were considered as the children of the first husband, and in consequence inherited his possessions.
    Leviticus 15:16-18
    Another passage that some use against masturbation is:
    Leviticus 15:16-18, “And if any man’s seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even. And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even. The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the even.”
    Yes, the “man’s seed of copulation” does refer to his semen. However, as you can see, this passage is not in reference to a man copulating by himself, but with “the woman also.” This passage is a regulation governing an occasional emission of semen. The practical effect of this legislation was that when a man had religious duties to perform, whether this involved worship or participation in God’s holy wars, sexual intercourse was not permitted (Exodus 19:15, Leviticus 22:4, Deuteronomy 23:10-11, 1 Samuel 21:5, 2 Samuel 11:11).
    But, let us assume for a moment that verses 16-17 refer to masturbation. Does this passage say it is a sin? No, it does not. Most of the other unclean acts mentioned in the previous chapters stated one must sacrifice an animal to atone for that uncleanness. However, look at the context of Leviticus 15:16-18. No sacrifice was required! No sin offering is required. The man (and woman) had simply to wash themselves in water and wait until evening. That’s all!
    Remember, anything that is considered a “sin” in the Old Testament requires a blood sacrifice. No exceptions. If a sin is involved, there must be the shedding of blood, period! The fact that Leviticus 15:16-18 does not require even an animal sacrifice is proof that the act mentioned in this passage is not a “sin.”
    Just because someone is “unclean” it does not mean they committed a sin. For example, it is not a sin if a priest touches an unclean thing, but he would be considered unclean, and he must bathe himself in water and remain unclean until the evening (Leviticus 22:1-7). Menstruous women do not commit a sin every month when they have their cycle, but they are considered unclean. Anyone who touches her will be unclean until evening. Anything she lies on or sits on is unclean. Whoever touches her bed, or anything she sits on, must wash their clothes and bathe in water and will be unclean until evening (Leviticus 15:19-24). But it is not a sin to do so.
    Therefore, there are two ways in which this “emission of semen” could happen. The ejaculation could be the result of a nocturnal emission, that is, a wet dream. Or, it could be the result of masturbation. Either way, the man is “unclean” until evening. This unclean is nowhere described as sinfully unclean. Throughout the law, people are called unclean, but they have done nothing evil (e.g. Leviticus 11:24-26, 43; 22:4-7; Numbers 19:7-8, 10-11, 14, 16, 22).
    Masturbation is Homosexuality?
    Another objection people make is that masturbation is homosexuality. And use verses such as:
    Leviticus 18:22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
    However, by using scripture to interpret scripture, to “lie with mankind” does not refer to a lone individual committing masturbation, to “lie with mankind” always involves two people, not one.
    Leviticus 20:13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
    Notice the above verse starts off in the singular sense “If a man,” and ends in a plural sense, meaning it takes at least two individuals to commit a sexual sin. All sexual sins must involve at least two.
    Masturbation is Fornication?
    Some teach that masturbation is self-abuse and sexually immoral, citing 1 Corinthians 6:18. The problem with their use of this passage is that masturbation is never described in the Bible as sexually immoral, or as fornication. The context of 1 Corinthians 6:18 is sex with a harlot (1 Corinthians 6:13-17), which is certainly sexually immoral. But, masturbation is never identified in this way.
    Their self-abuse argument comes from “modern dictionaries,” because masturbation is given as a synonym for self-abuse in modern dictionaries. But this begs the question at hand. Is it truly abusive, in and of itself? Is masturbation an intended use of the sex organ, or is it abuse? Obviously, some people think so, and so they identify the term synonymously with self-abuse.

    Reason
    Reason is the tool of the apologist from here on out. He will reason that sex is only for making babies during the marriage state. He will not talk about sex being pleasurable. Note Solomon on the pleasures of laying with one’s wife:
    Proverbs 5:15-20, “Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well. Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets. Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee. Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love. And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?”
    Solomon clearly talks about pleasure in sex, and procreation has nothing to do with it. The fountain is a discreet reference to the man’s pleasure in copulation. The graphical language is very obvious. The sin would only be in sharing the fountain with anyone other than the god-given wife. In the right setting, the fountain is to be very busy for a godly man and women who are married (Song of Solomon 3:11; 5:1).
    Song of Solomon 1:2,13, “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine. A bundle of myrrh is my wellbeloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.”
    Song of Solomon 7:8, “I said, I will go up to the palm tree, I will take hold of the boughs thereof: now also thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of thy nose like apples;”
    There would be a lot less stress in marriage if husbands and wives talked to each other in these terms. Also, note that procreation is not mentioned once in the Song of Solomon. The satisfaction of laying with one’s husband or wife is everywhere in the book, and it is of God and good. So, masturbation cannot be pushed into the sin category by saying that copulation is only for having babies.
    Now, some claim that if a married couple has sex for purposes other than to bear children, then they would be defiled. Even though one of the reasons for having sex with your wife is to have children, it is not the only reason. And if it is wrong to have sex with her other than for the purpose of having children, it would contradict Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled,” which states that having sex in marriage is not defiling. Hebrews 13:4 does not say the bed is undefiled only in situations where the couple is making children in bed.
    The next trick the alleged experts will use is that masturbation is selfish. Well then, so is eating a chocolate bar. If I eat a chocolate bar and enjoy it, I am selfish. It gratifies my need for pleasure in food, and that too is sanctioned by David, Solomon, and others as they describe special feast type foods which satisfy them. So, that one won’t fly either.
    The next trick is to say that there are many things the Bible does not mention, but we know that they are sin by other contexts. Things like smoking and drug abuse will be cited. Well, masturbation was not some late thing to come along which Bible writers did not know about. Adam could have conceivably masturbated if he had wanted to. Masturbation is lawful. There is nothing in the word of God that condemns it. The Lord never even intimates that it is some form of abuse or not according to His purpose. There is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9), and it is not as if this is a new thing of which the Lord was unaware! Leviticus 15:16-17 addresses the issue, at least the result of it, and no condemnation is given. Therefore, neither should we condemn what God does not (Matthew 7:1-2).
    God gave council on much to do with sexual things, and He made it very clear which things were sinful or forbidden:
    1. Adultery
    2. Fornication
    3. Sodomy
    4. Women grabbing a man’s testicles during a fight
    5. Having sex with an animal
    I suppose I missed something, but you see the point. Masturbation is so common, and it is available to both men and women, that we must not assume it into the sin category when God made no comment at all on the subject. Scripture does not teach that it masturbation is not according to the purpose of God. Moreover, the Word of God never identifies it as unnatural. Homosexuality is unnatural (Romans 1:26-27). Masturbation is never spoken of in this way. Leviticus 18 and 20 lists every sexual act that God considers a sin. Every one. If a sexual act is not listed here, then it is not a sin. The act of Masturbation is never mentioned as a sexual sin here, or anywhere else in scripture.
    Also, young people, as they gain sexual performance in early teens, commonly experiment with the body God gave them. To assume that the playing with one’s privates, and eventually masturbation, is sin, is doing violence to what God did. If God did not want kids playing with themselves, God would have commented on it. And, God would have given kids longer to develop so that their ability to perform sexually would coincide better with the accepted age of marriage and starting a family. God is not the author of confusion. The talent of generating confusion is reserved for those who proscribe what God does with man made codes and assumptions.

    Can Masturbation be a Problem?
    Yes. Jesus made it clear that adultery can be committed in the heart, even though no physical intercourse has taken place (Matthew 5:27-28). “The imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth,” (Genesis 8:21) so it would not be surprising to find evil masturbatic activity rampant in society. Masturbation with evil imaginations, which could include the use of pornographic material, is most certainly wicked and beyond any hope of redeeming value. But, masturbation, in and of itself, does not demand such evil thoughts. To say it does, goes beyond what is written (1 Corinthians 4:6) and adds to the word of God (Proverbs 30:5-6).
    All the sex perverts, exhibitionists, and sex criminals of all the ages masturbated before they got around to criminal sex. But the problem with this logic is that so did all the great and godly men (with very few exceptions). We don’t need to prove anything, but we do need to stop making cases for morality based on stupid statistics and notions.
    Masturbation becomes a problem when boys masturbate together. This kind of social masturbating, or stag party, often leads to acts of sodomy as boys start stimulating each other. The solution is to teach young people that masturbation is a private matter and should not be made public. This will help them to realize that sex in marriage is also a private matter between husband and wife. Neither form of sexual stimulation should be the subject of gross humor and light conversation. Telling jokes about masturbation pushes the thing into the dirty category. Beware of that.
    If masturbation becomes obsessive it will lead to a loss of control in the life just like gluttony or any other form of appetite gone astray. The young man or woman should be taught to confess the sin of appetite which is out of control rather than to tell them that they are sexually perverted or nasty. The sin is that of not letting the Holy Spirit lead in appetites. Read that again please, especially if you are more than ten pounds overweight🙂
    Another way in which masturbation is wrong is when it is accompanied by the use of pornography, filthy music, or even mental fantasies of certain women (such as those who we are not supposed to have sex with – Leviticus 18). This is so common that it is assumed to be the only method of masturbating. Of course, many young people do not start out in their first masturbating venture with any fantasy. They have no history to work with mentally. They are just playing with their hardware. But the older a man gets, the more he accumulates a mental history which feeds fantasy, and thus, the more tempted he will be to use mental lust as he masturbates. This is why Paul warns Timothy to “flee youthful lusts” (2 Timothy 2:22).
    So, it is true that masturbation is easily perverted by fetishes of the mind or magazine. I knew a man who fantasized in lust for a woman in the church fellowship while he masturbated, and whenever he came to church and saw the woman, he blushed with shame. So, this is a danger for sure.

    Does Masturbation serve any good Purpose?
    When a husband and wife are separated against their will and one is having severe temptations with lust, masturbation can serve as a release for those drives. This has saved many men from infidelity. In that sense, and I suppose I shall be thrashed for this, I suggest that masturbation is a very useful solution. Masturbation is also a release to young unmarried men. We just don’t like to admit it. Many a young man has defused a setting for fornication by masturbating ahead of time. Cold showers are fine, but they don’t last. Of course, a young man can further help this struggle greatly by making sure he is only found in modest company.
    Masturbation can also be therapeutic according to one report I read. It seems that copulation in a man will help to relieve the effects of prostrate problems of middle age. Of course, the ideal is for the man to simply increase his bed chamber life with his wife, but if that is not possible, masturbation could be helpful to keep the plumbing working well. Also, this therapy is no excuse for obsessive behavior, and young men need not think this is a matter of getting an early start on the thing.
    Also, ask any Roman Catholic priest how he avoids fornication (if he does, that is). Guess what he will tell you, if he feels free to speak candidly. Rome’s celibacy laws are wicked indeed.
    Finally, Paul said, “All things are lawful, but not all things are helpful.” Can masturbation be helpful? Certainly, it can be helpful in alleviating the sexual drive, as long as it is done with pure thoughts, as it is written, “To the pure, all things are pure” (Titus 1:15). Even though Paul says, “All things are lawful for me,” he also says, “but I will not be brought under the power of any” (1 Corinthians 6:12). Masturbation should not control the individual. The individual should be in control of any masturbation. Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:23) and should be a continual reality in the life of any believer (Romans 8:5-6).

    Moral
    Romans 14:14, “I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.”
    There is one area we need to beware of. If someone sees masturbation as defeating and unclean, we better be cautious about encouraging that man or woman to just let go on and enjoy it. Enjoying it is also not taught in the Bible. Masturbation is not anywhere spoken of at all. So, we dare not try to deliver someone of their dedication to avoid and flee from masturbation. To them, it is important and related to their victory. Again, this is why the thing needs to be made a private matter for a kid at an early age. If you catch your son or daughter masturbating, do not panic. You don’t have a budding pervert in your family. Deal with it discreetly and kindly with a word of advice to keep it very private and personal.
    Suzie, “Oh Mommy, I’m so sorry you caught me doing that.”
    Mom, “Well, you know, God made your body so you could get sexual pleasure at your age before you got married. Sex feels good doesn’t it? Sex is not dirty, but sex is the most exciting after you get married. The more of your sexual pleasure you save for your husband, the happier you will be. If you feel you have to play with yourself, just be careful to keep this very private, and don’t allow it to be the main thing in your life. God wants you to think on His Word and His holiness as much as you can. He will help you decide what is good and okay for you if you ask Him.”
    OR:
    The kid, “Dad– Is it wrong to jack off?”
    Dad, “Son, the next question is important– What does the Bible say about masturbation?”
    The kid, “Dad, I can’t find anything.”
    Dad, “Nor can I son.”
    The kid, “So, what about it?”
    Dad, “If you have to masturbate to get the pressure off of you, then okay, but talk to the Lord about everything in your life. He made you with all this sexual drive. He will help you know what is important. Stay in the Word. Don’t let sex ever be the main event in your life. Keep some ammunition for the wife God is getting ready for you. Here is a question son– What if you found out the lady you are going to marry was masturbating all the time?”
    The kid, “Uh, that’s a weird question Dad.”
    Dad, “Well, think of it as saving some of your strength for her and for the honeymoon. But, if you masturbate once in a while, God is not mad at you, or He would have told you about it in the Bible.”
    If masturbation is a sexual sin to you, well deal with it that way. But, you have no grounds to teach that to anyone else, for God pointedly said nothing about it, and it is the first and possibly the most common form of sexual activity with all of humanity.

    Question: “Why did you have to put this article on this Website?”
    Answer: I know that thousands of little kids in Christian homes have grown up with a warped and twisted terror of their privates and of sex. Some of these kids have never had sexual pleasure for many years later after they got married. Some of these kids become sodomites as a result of neurotic behavior by their parents. So, after much deliberation, and after some desperate questions from readers, this is needed. I hope it helps some kid grow up without crippling terror, and I hope some Mom or Dad learns to be more wise with the kids as they grow into puberty. It is an exciting thing to see a little kid start looking grownup and act like an adult. How wicked it is then, to twist their new found sexual desires until they are too mutilated to ever give pleasure again. I would liken this to castration. I pray that you see why this discussion is needed.

    Conclusion
    Not once is masturbation mentioned…not once in the entire scriptures! Some may claim the reason for this is because there was not a word for “masturbation” in the Hebrew or Greek. However, there was no word for “bestiality” back then either, but God made it clear that we are not to have sex with animals (Leviticus 18:23, Deuteronomy 27:21). There was no word for “homosexuality” back then either, but God made it clear that we are not to have sex with those of the same sex (Leviticus 18:22; 20:13). There was no word for “incest” back then either, but God made it clear that we are not to have sex with those who are near kin to us (Leviticus 18:6-18).
    Likewise, God could have easily said that man must not have sexual relations with himself, or something similar, but God never even hinted at any such act being sinful. If masturbation is a sin, there must be somewhere in scripture where it says that having sex with oneself is a sin, because all sins are mentioned in scripture. If something is a sin against God, He will tell us it is a sin against Him in His Word, and won’t leave any sin out.

  15. Mungu awabariki ndugu zangu katika Bwana nimekua nikijifunza kupitia mada mbalimbali bila kucomment,but for this napenda niungane na watumishi wote wa KWELI wa Mungu waliosema punyeto ni DHAMBI. na ijulikane shetani ni mwenye hila haijalishi mtumishi ana umaarufu gani bado yeye ni mwanadamu na akizembea shetani anaweza kumletea mawazo potofu. mfano Mtume Petro alipokua na Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo,Yesu alimwambia,mwili na damu havikukufunulia hilo pale alipomwambia wewe ndiwe KRISTO mwana wa Mungu aliye hai.hapa tunajifunza kua Petro alipata ufunuo huo kutoka kwa baba(Roho Mtakatifu)lakini hapo hapo tunaona Yesu anamkemea rudi nyuma shetani,maana huyawazi yaliyo ya Mungu ila ya wanadamu.Math 16:16-22.hapa tunaweza kujifunza kitu kua ya wanadamu = na ya shetani.pia Biblia inatuonya kua msitweze unabii jaribuni mambo yote,lishikeni lililo jema.hii inamaana kua kuna lisilo jema ndani ya huyo huyo anayesema jema.1 Thethalonike 5:20-21.napenda kusema kweli ni mtumishi wa Mungu lakini kwa hili si jema.tumuombee najua siku moja ataungama.Mungu awbariki wapendwa.

  16. Ndugu yangu Orbi na wengine wote,
    Ahsanteni sana kwa pongezi zenu, sifa na utukufu wote umrudie Mungu wetu. Naomba Mungu aendelee kufungua macho yetu ya ndani ili tuweze kuona wazi wazi hila na mitego ya mwovu Shetani. Nadhani ndg yetu Millinga naye atafunguliwa macho hayo na kuiona dhambi hii wazi.

  17. WAPENZI, nashauri, kila mtu aliyeokoka na amejazwa Roho mtakatifu akae sawa na Mungu wake! Maandiko yaeleza, tunapoonyana tuwe makini sana ili tusije sisi wenyewe kumkosea Mungu!

  18. Ndugu Kinyau,

    Mungu na Akubariki sana…….sikutegemea kabisa jambo hili kuleta mjadala……kuna nyakati Paulo alipotoa orodha ya dhambi au maovu alisema “na mambo yanayofanana na hayo”………..na hakika Paulo akiongozwa na Roho wa Mungu alijua alichokuwa akisema. Na vile vile mjadala huu umenikumbusha ule mjadala uliojitokeza kwenye mjadala wa kuwapongeza wanandoa na ukachipusha mada ya “dhambi za sirini”…….kwangu mimi punyeto ni dhambi ya sirini…….kuangalia picha za ngono ni dhambi ya sirini.

    Mungu Akubariki mno

  19. mimi nawashangaa kwasababu tu ni pastor chriss wa kanisa linalojiita la kiroho ndio kasema huo uchafu,eti mnasema yeye ni mwanadamu jamani anaweza kupitiwa.lakini ingekuwa ni askofu malasusa au kadinali pengo mngesema ni freemasons au kanisa la kidunia tokeni kati yao mkatengwe nao. acheni unafiki jamani nilichojifunza mimi ni kwamba HE IS NOT LINKED WITH GOD.
    HATUWEZI KUMTETEA HATA KAMA NI MTUMISHI MKUBWA NI KUMUOMBEA ATUBU ARUDI KWENYE MSTARI.

  20. Haggai
    Ndio maana kwenye post yangu ya mwisho niliandika

    “Tunapo kuta tumetenda kama Onani mwana wa Yuda Mw 38:9-10 Ni vema kuomba rehema kwa Mungu kama alivyoshauri Binti wa Yesu’,

    Nakumbuka ukiri wake Millinga, kukubalina na Pastor Cris sio .jambo la kushangaza.,Tuombe kwaa Bwana Yesu amjalie ili aweze kufikia toba,tukihesabu uvumilivu wake Bwana kuwa ni wokovu kwa Mpendwa wetu.Millinga.

    Bwana atuponye.

  21. Ndugu Millinga, ubarikiwe na Bwana.

    Awali ya yote naomba nikushauri kitu kimoja kwamba kila mara unapouliza maswali, usiwe na majibu yako ambayo umekwisha kuyaandaa ili kulinganisha na kila kinachochangiwa na watu wengine. Ukijiweka kwenye nafasi hiyo kamwe hutaona kitu chochote cha maana toka kwa watu wanaojaribu kujibu maswali yako.

    Kufuatana na post yako ya jana iliyofuata baada ya mimi kukujibu maswali yako inaonekana wazi kwamba uliuliza maswali yako ili watu wajibu jinsi wewe unavyotaka na wala si kwa jinsi au muongozo wa neno la Mungu. Hapa hatujadili mambo ya kijamii yasiyokuwa na msimamo wa kiimani, mambo ambayo husimamiwa na sayansi au sayansi jamii zaidi kuliko imani kwa Mungu wetu. Benki za mbegu za kiume na benki za damu na mambo mengine yanayohusiana na hayo msingi wake ni wa kisayansi zaidi kuliko msingi wa neno la Mungu. Hili linathibitishwa ndani ya huduma ya Yesu hapa duniani kwamba kuna mambo mengi na magonjwa mengi aliponya bila msaada wa kisayansi kama ambavyo wewe unataka tuelewe kwamba Mungu wetu anaweza kusaidiwa na sayansi.

    Hii ndio ilikuwa sababu kubwa ya mimi kukuambia kwamba maswali yako ni ya kidunia zaidi kuliko kiimani kwa Mungu wetu.

    Hebu ona ulivyoandika hivi;
    “Biblia inasema mtu anakuwa hai anapokuwa na roho. Mwili bila roho ni mauti au kifo………. Huwezi kumcha Mungu vyema kama mambo ya kidunia hujafanya vyema”

    Hakika kifungu cha maneno haya kimenisikitisha na hasa kwamba kimetolewa na wewe Milinga ambaye kupitia chambuzi zako mbali mbali nilidhani kwamba upo hatua fulani kubwa zaidi kiimani na katika kumjua Mungu wetu.

    Hebu tuone maandiko yanasemaje juu ya mtu kuwa hai au kuwa amekufa hata kama bado roho yake haijatengana na mwili wake. Kitabu cha Mwanzo kinatueleza kwamba Mungu alimwambia Adamu na Hawa kwamba wakila tunda la mti wa ujuzi wa mema na mabaya, hakika watakufa. Na kweli wakala lile tunda na baada ya hapo, je, roho zao zilitengana na miili yao? Kama hazikutengana je, walikufa au walikuwa hai? Je, tuamini kwamba Mungu alisema uongo alipowaambia kuwa watakufa? Ndugu Milinga nina imani unayo majibu yake!!

    Kilichonisikitisha zaidi ni hicho kifungu cha pili kwamba huwezi kumcha Mungu vyema kama mambo ya kidunia hujayafanya vyema. Hebu tuone pia maandiko yanasema nini juu ya kuyafuatisha na kutenda mambo ya kidunia na athari zake katika kumcha Mungu.

    Tuanze na neno tulilolizoea sana toka Wagalatia 5:19-21, neno linasema hivi;
    “Basi matendo ya mwili (ya kidunia) ni dhahiri nayo ni haya: Uasherati, uchafu, ufisadi, kuabudu sanamu, uchawi, uadui, ugomvi, wivu, hasira, fitina, faraka, uzushi, husuda, ulevi, ulafi, NA MAMBO MENGINE YANAYOFANANA NA HAYO (punyeto ikiwa mojawapo). Nawaonya, kama nilivyokwisha kuwaonya kabla, kwamba WATU WATENDAO MAMBO KAMA HAYO, hawataurithi Ufalme wa Mungu”
    NB: Neno la kwenye mabano ni langu!

    Ndugu Millinga, mimi ninachokiamini ni neno la Mungu ambalo ni chakula cha roho yangu, ni taa na mwanga wa njia zangu, ni uzima (uhai) wangu, ni uponyaji wangu, ni kila kitu kwangu, n.k. Kama neno la Mungu limenionyesha mambo ya kidunia (ya mwilini) kama yalivyotajwa hapo juu na mengine yafananayo na hayo, na neno linaniambia kila atendaye mambo hayo atakufa au amekufa tayari ingawa bado anaonekana akitembea, sikuelewi kabisa wewe unapokuja na hoja iliyo kinyume kabisa kwamba, ILI UMCHE MUNGU VIZURI LAZIMA UYAFANYE MAMBO HAYO TENA UYAFANYE VYEMA.

    1 Kor 6:18 inasema “Ikimbieni zinaa. Dhambi nyingine zote atendazo mtu ziko nje ya mwili wake, lakini yeye aziniye hutenda dhambi ndani ya mwili wake mwenyewe”

    Kumbuka ndugu Millinga zinaa imetajwa pia kama moja ya matendo ya mwili au matendo ya kidunia ambayo wewe unatusisitiza tuyafanye kwa ukamilifu ( yaani vyema kabisa) ili tuweze kumcha Mungu, hii ni hatari kubwa.

    Warumi 6:11-13, “Vivyo hivyo, jihesabuni WAFU katika dhambi LAKINI mlio HAI kwa Mungu katika Kristo Yesu. Kwa hiyo, MSIRUHUSU DHAMBI itawale ndani ya miili yenu, ipatikanayo na kufa, ili kuwafanya mzitii TAMAA MBAYA. Wala msivitoe viungo vya miili yenu vitumike kama VYOMBO VYA UOVU VYA KUTENDA DHAMBI, bali jitoeni kwa Mungu, kama watu waliotolewa kutoka mautini kuingia uzimani. Nanyi vitoeni viungo vya miili yenu Kwake kama vyombo vya haki”

    Mimi sielewi Ndg Millinga unasoma biblia gani kwa sababu neno la Mungu lipo wazi kabisa juu ya aliyeokoka kuvitumia viungo vya mwili wake katika kumcha Mungu; labda niwe sielewi maana ya neno kumcha Mungu!

    Kwa hiyo mimi nilipoongelea habari ya kwamba mtu ambaye hajaokoka, roho yake imekufa, nilidhani mwenzangu utanielewa nina maana gani kwa kuwa nilidhani kwamba unajua kuwa roho ya mtenda dhambi huwa haiko hai kwa Mungu, lakini kumbe mwenzangu ukanielewe vibaya kwamba ni kifo cha mwili kutengana na roho. Kifo cha kutengana mwili na roho ni lazima kitokea kwa kila mtu yamkini hata wateule! Lakini kabla ya kifo hicho kumbuka kuna watu wanatembea na kuongea vizuri lakini roho zao zimekufa, hazina mawasiliano wala mahusiano na Mungu wao.

    Sehemu nyingine kwenye post yako umeandika hivi;
    “Yaani mwili ndio unaohusika kuzitenda kwani lazima kuna kugusana na mwili wa mwamnamke au mwanaume ndipo tuseme fulani amezini, amefanya uasherati au amefanya “punyeto”. Matendo haya ni ya kidunia na ni ya kimwili zaidi. Lakini mtu afanyapo ANAATHIRI UHUSIANO WAKE NA MUNGU. YAANI KIROHO CHAKE AMEMWASI MUNGU ASIYEOONEKANA…..”

    Nimeweka msisitizo kwenye maneno niliyoyaandika kwa herufi kubwa.

    Hii dhana kwamba ili ionekane umetenda dhambi ya uasherati au uzinzi ni lazima mwanamume na mwanamke wagusane, sijui umeitoa wapi, maana maandiko yako wazi kabisa kwenye Injili ya Mathayo 5:27-28 kwamba;

    “Mmesikia kwamba ilinenwa ‘Usizini’. Lakini mimi (Yesu) nawaambia: kwamba YEYOTE AMTAZAMAYE MWANAMKE KWA KUMTAMANI, AMEKWISHA KUZINI NAYE MOYONI MWAKE”

    Kwa maana hiyo, hiyo hoja yako ndugu Millinga imefutwa na neno hilo ambalo nina imani unaamini kwamba halitatanguka milele. Kwa hiyo wapiga punyeto wengi huwa na tamaa zao na huweka mawazo au huwaza mioyoni mwao kuwa wanafanya ngono wa wanawake, hivyo hufanya kitendo cha uzinifu.

    Hapa nakushukuru kwamba umetambua kuwa uzinzi na uasherati ni matendo ya kidunia au ya mwilini na yanaathiri sana mahusiano ya mtu na Mungu wake, wakati hapo nyuma ulitusisitiza tuyatende sana ili kuweza kumcha Mungu wetu vyema! Huu ni mkanganyiko unaotoka kwenye kinywa chako mwenyewe na sijui mkanganyiko huu unalenga nini.

    Pia umeeleza vizuri jinsi punyeto inavyoathiri uhusiano wa mtu na Mungu wake kwa yule anayefanya kitendo hicho, lakini mwisho wa post yako ukasema mpaka sasa hujajua ukae upande gani, kwa wale tunaosema punyeto ni dhambi au upande wa wale wanaosema kwamba punyeto sio dhambi. Hivi huoni hapa ndugu Millinga unataka ama kupotosha watu kwa makusudi au unataka tu mjadala huu uendelee kwa jinsi wewe unavyotaka?

    Kama umeeleza wazi na kuiweka punyeto kwenye kundi moja na uasherati na uzinzi, ni kipi kinakufanya usione kuwa punyeto ni dhambi? Tena angalia ulivyomalizia sentensi yako kwa kusema; “…….mtu afanyapo anaathiri uhusiano wake na Mungu yaani kiroho chake AMEMWASI MUNGU ASIYEOONEKANA…..”

    Biblia inaeleza wazi kuwa dhambi ni uasi, nawe umekiri hivyo kwamba afanyaye matendo ya punyeto anamwasi Mungu asiyeonekana, sasa ni kitu gani kinafumba macho usione kwamba punyeto ni dhambi?

    Nakumbuka kuna mada fulani ilikuwa inaendelea hapa na kati ya mambo mengi uliyoyasema ni kwamba wewe uliendelea kupiga au kufanya kitendo cha punyeto hata baada ya kuokoka mpaka ulipooa. Nakumbuka tulikushangaa sana kwamba ulimpokea Roho gani wa Mungu ambaye hakuweza kukufanya uache punyeto baada ya kuokoka mpaka ulipooa! Wengine ikatutia mashaka kwamba hata baada ya kuoa inawezekana hujaacha (zingatia; nimesema inawezekana). Labda hii ndio sababu kubwa inakufanya usione dhahiri kwamba punyeto ni dhambi!!!

    Mwisho, kama nilivyoanza kukushauri kwenye post hii kwamba ndg yangu Millinga, katika kujifunza au kutaka kujua kitu (na kufundisha pia), siku zote usijaribu kuuliza maswali wakati una majibu tayari ya maswali yako kiasi kwamba yeyote anayechangia kinyume na kile ambacho wewe unakitaka au majibu uliyo nayo, basi unadiriki kusema kwamba kama mtu hana majibu basi ni afadhali akae kimya! Kwa kufanya hivyo ndg Millinga utakuwa umejifungia kwenye box na kuona kwamba kila kinachoonekana ndani ya box hilo ndio kila kitu!

    Hakuna mchango au majibu ya mtu ndani ya blog hii ambayo hayana kitu hata kidogo cha kutusaidia kwenye safari hii ya kwenda mbinguni, inategemea muuliza swali na msomaji anataka kujifunza nini au amefungua moyo wake wazi kiasi gani kwa ajili ya kujifunza!

    Kama ungekaa na kutulia vizuri ukausoma mchango wangu wa jana na kujaribu kuyatafakari maswali kadhaa niliyoyaweka kama njia mojawapo ya kujibu maswali yako, nina imani usingeniambia kama sina majibu ningekaa kimya! Jambo moja kati ya mengi ambayo nilitaka ulitafakari ni kwamba akina Ibrahimu na Sara, Hanna na Elikana na wengine waliopata watoto baada ya muda mrefu tena uzeeni, walihitaji benki za mbegu za kiume? Mungu aliyemuumba mwanadamu amekosa uwezo wa kumsaidia mtu mwenye low sperm count hadi aongezewe kwenye benki hizo? pamoja na mambo yote uliyaongelea lakini bado hata hukuthubutu kusema samahani kwa kuchanganya maneno mawili ya wetdream na bedwetting ambalo moja lilikuwa halihusiani kabisa na mada hii, kana kwamba yana maana moja. Ina maana hata kwenye hilo hukuona kitu chochote kwenye mchango wangu kiasi cha kuniambia nikae kimya?

    Nikutakie baraka za Bwana na tusiwe wepesi wa kudharau kila kitu kinachowekwa mbele yetu, lakini pia tusiwe wepesi wa kumeza kila kitu, maana yake tuwe Waberoya zaidi badala ya kudharauliana!

    Godlisten,
    Ahsante sana kwa mchango wako mfupi wenye ujumbe mzito kwetu wote. Ni maneno machache lakini yanayoweza kufafanuliwa kwa kujaza kurasa nyingi mno.
    Mungu wa mbinguni akujalie afya ya kiroho na ya kimwili pia.

  22. Ukishaanza kujadili na kutetea mambo ya namna hii angalia sana,
    ” YAK. 1:14 Lakini kila mmoja hujaribiwa na tamaa yake mwenyewe huku akivutwa na kudanganywa.”

  23. Mpendwa Haggai,

    Ninashukuru kwa majibu yako. Ubarikiwe sana. Nimejifunza mengi toka kwako. Roho yangu imeburudika sana kwa majibu yako.

    Mpendwa Haggai, Kuna mambo kadhaa nahitaji kupata uelewa zaidi. Inaonekana watu wengi hupenda kutaja mambo fulani ni ya kidunia na mambo fulani ni ya kiroho. Mara nyingi huwa siwaelewi. Mambo ya Kiroho au ya kidunia? Ni nini?

    Mpendwa Haggai, Mimi najua kwamba Biblia inasema kuwa Mwanadamu anakuwa hai anapokuwa na roho. Yaani mwili bila roho ni mauti au kifo. Au mtu asiye na roho ni marehemu. Pasipo mambo ya mwili hakuna ya mambo ya rohoni. Ni sawa na Imani bila matendo imekufa. Pasipo mambo ya kidunia hakuna mambo ya Kiroho au ya Kimbingu. Huwezi ukamcha Mungu vyema kama mambo ya kidunia hujayafanya vyema. Yaani mimi naelewa kwamba mambo ya “kidunia” ni mambo yote yanayogusika au kuonekana kwa macho ya kibinadamu wakati yale ya Kiroho ni mambo ambayo huwezi kuyagusa kwa mikono wala kuyaona kwa macho ya mwili. Hivi mimi ndivyo naelewa mambo ya kidunia na mambo ya kiroho. Sijui wenzangu mwaelewaje.

    Hata ukiatama maswala yote yahusuyo “masturbation” , uzinzi, na uasherati, ni dhambi zinazofanywa katika mwili. Yaani mwili ndio unaohusika kuzitenda kwani lazima kuna kugusana na mwili wa mwanamke au mwanamume ndipo tuseme fulani amezini, amefanya uasherati au amefanya “punyeto”. Matendo haya yote ni ya kidunia na ni ya kimwili zaidi. Lakini mtu ayafanyapo anaathiri uhusiano wake na Mungu. Yaani kiroho chake amemwasi Mungu asiyeoonekana. Au wengine mwaelewaje? Nisaidieni.

    Mzee Haggai, Katika mada hii tunayojadili ili tupate kuwasaidia wengi tunapochambua iwapo “masturbation” ni dhambi au siyo dhambi, nategemea kuona watu wakichambua kila kona ya mada ili kila mahala palipo na utata au kila kona shetani anyoitumia kuwateka watu tuielewe na kuikemea ili watu wapone.

    Kwa hiyo ukiniambia kwamba maswali niliyouliza wadau mengi ni ya kidunia au ya kimwili nakuwa sijapata ufahamu zaidi katika hilo. Mimi naelewa kwamba huwezi ukampendeza Mungu kiroho tu na kimwili ukasema haya ni ya kimwli hayahusiani na ya kiroho kwa hiyo tusiyajadili.

    Mimi nadhani watu wengi huwa wanamkosea Mungu kwa mambo yanayodhaniwa kuwa ya kidunia. Tukiacha kuchambua kwa kina hayo unayoita ya kidunia, nanukuu, “Ndio sababu nilikuambia kuwa maswali yako hayo ni ya kidunia mno badala ya kuwa ya kiroho zaidi” halafu tukadhani sisi tunatakiwa kutoa ufafanuzi kwa “mambo ya kiroho zaidi” nadhani ndipo tutakapomkosea Mungu zaidi.

    Mimi nafikiri kama mtu hana majibu kwa maswali wayaulizayo watu ili kuzidi kujifunza ni vema akaacha kutoa majibu.

    Kutokana na maswali niliyouliza katika mada hii inaonekana yamewaweka watu katika makundi mawili:

    Kundi la kwanza: Wapo wanaosema kuwa kufanya punyeto siyo dhambi inategemeana na malengo au dhamira ya mtu mwenyewe. Hapa nawanukuu waliochangia kujibu maswali yangu, mfano Haggai anasema, “Kitu cha muhimu cha kusisitiza kwenye punyeto ni dhamira ya mfanya kitendo hicho…” Ukimnukuu ndg John Haule anasema, “Mosi, tunaangalia Neno(maandiko)kwanza, ndio kiongozi .
    Pili, Dhamiri ndani ya kile tunachotaka kukifanya, Roho anakushudia nini…”

    Na pia ukinukuu maelezo ya Mpendwa John Paul alipokuwa akichangia utaona kwamba upande mmoja anasema ni dhambi naa upande wa pili siyo dhambi, Nanukuu maelezo yake, anasema;

    “Hakuna tofauti kati ya Kujitolea Sperms na Kujitolea Damu IKIWA TU lengo ni kwa ajili ya Utabibu!

    3. Kutoa sperms kwa ajili ya msaada wa kitabibu si dhambi.

    4. Kutoa mbegu za kiume ili zipimwe kutokana na ushauri wa Daktari Siyo dhambi!

    5. Ninavyoona mimi Siyo dhambi kuwa na sperm Banks kama ilivyo kwa Blood Banks.

    Kwa hiyo ningekuwa na mamlaka ya kutoa hitimisho katika mada hii, ningesema kwamba, mada hii imeshindikana kupata majibu sahihi au bado ni mada yenye utata zaidi.

    Nasema hivyo kwa sababu unapokwenda hospitalini kutibiwa matatizo ya uzazi ni lazima utalazimishwa kufanya “punyeto” ili mbegu au shahawa zikapimwe kama unavyolazimishwa kutoa damu ili ukapimwe Malaria, nk. Mimi nina mfano wa Mchungaji ambaye hajapata mtoto tangu mwaka 1986 alipooa hadi sasa. Amekwishaenda Bugando yeye na mkewe mara nyingi kupimwa na kutibiwa lakini hawajafaulu kupata mtoto hadi sasa. Huyu ni mchungaji tena wa kanisa lenye waumini wa kiroho (Naomba nisimtaje hapa).

    Unapofanya “masturbation” au “punyeto” au “kujichua” iwe Hospitalini kwa nia ya kutibiwa au iwe uko chumbani au bafuni mwako ukafanya hivyo kwa nia ya kuondoa msongamano wa mbegu na shahawa katika makende yako ili zisikusumbue kisaikolojia mimi naona vyote ni hali moja. Hakuna tofauti.

    Kama tunasema kutoa mbegu au shahawa ni dhambi basi hata kutoa damu mimi naona ni dhambi pia bila kujalisha dhamira yako. Huwezi ukasema utaangalia makusudi ya huyo mtu ndipo useme ni dhambi au siyo dhambi. Kitendo ni kile kile. Hakuna tofauti. Uwe bafuni. Uwe chumba cha Daktari. Bado umetenda tendo lile lile.

    Naomba nisiwachoche kwa leo ili mjadala nisije nikaonekana nimeufunga. Jamani bado naomba tuendelee kujifunza zaidi.

    Hadi sasa sijapata upande wa kuegemea.

  24. Millinga ,

    Shalom,

    Naongelea mada kuwa punyeto sio dhambi
    Mungu ametupa hekima ya kutambua dhamb/hakii ,Roho wake anatuongoza/saidia.ili tusichague maneno ya kumwamini kwa kutumia akili zetu.kwamba ili jema ili baya Roho wake anazishuhudia roho zetu.

    Imani tunayoiamini inatutaka kuangalia Neno+Roho = hekima ya Mungu.
    Neno+Roho=hekima ya Mungu- Punyetoni dhambi.kama nilivyoandika

    Maandiko yanatuonya tusifuate hekima ya dunia hii,
    kwa mfano wa maswali uliyouliza yana hekima ktk dunia hii.

    Rumi16:8…., lakini nataka ninyi kuwa wenye hekima katika mambo mema, na wajinga katika mambo mabaya.
    Pia maandiko yameandikwa kuwa neema ya Mungu imefunuliwa; yatufundisha kukataa ubaya na tamaa za kidunia; tupate kuishi kwa kiasi/haki/utauwa, katika ulimwengu huu.
    1Kor10:10 Basi mambo hayo yaliwapata wao kwa jinsi ya mifano, yakaandikwa ili kutuonya sisi, tuliofikiliwa na miisho ya zamani.

    Basi Ndugu yangu Millinga tukisoma Maandiko Utisho unatuingia tunaogopa ili tusije tukamtenda dhambi Mungu

    Tunapo kuta tumetenda kama Onani mwana wa Yuda Mw 38:9-10 Ni vema kuomba rehema kwa Mungu kama alivyoshauri Binti wa Yesu,

    Ninawashukuru Haggai,Sam na wengineo naona wametoa maelezo ya kutosha.kwa habari ya maswali uliyoniuliza

    Ubarikiwe

  25. Dear Milinga,
    Thank you for your good challenge.

    please can you give us the contexts of “And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also”.

    I will appreciate to hear your description regarding “THE THING WHICH ONAN DID” from your “reading inside context”. And probably you may help us know what killed the other brother (Er).

  26. Ndugu Millinga,

    Ahsante kwa kutusisitiza kujibu maswali yako ambayo umeyaita ni magumu sana kiasi cha kuyafananisha na chakula kigumu cha kiroho. Lakini mimi naona sio maswali magumu kwa sababu karibu maswali yako yote yameegemea zaidi mambo ya kimwili kuliko kiroho. Nami sasa, kama ndugu yangu John Paul alivyofanya naomba kujibu maswali yako kama ifuatavyo;

    1. Swali la kwanza unataka kujua tofauti ya ndoto nyevu (wetdreams or bedwetting) na punyeto. Kwanza kabisa lazima watu tujue kwamba kuna tofauti kati ya wetdreams na bedwetting.

    Wetdreams can be defined as an erotic dream usually at night when somebody is asleep and is accompanied by the emmision of semen.

    Kwa Kiswahili kisicho rasmi tunaweza kusema kwamba ‘wetdream’ ni ndoto anazoota mtu wakati akiwa amelala fofofo ambazo ndoto hizo husababisha mtu huyu kutokwa na mbegu zake za kiume. Sasa hapa sielewi upande wa akina mama inakuwaje!! Naomba Milinga unisaidie.

    Bed wetting is also known as enuresis during sleep especially or is common in children. Thus Enuresis can be defined as an inability to control the flow of urine and hence involuntary urination.

    Kwa Kiswahili kisicho rasmi tunaweza kusema ni kukosa uwezo wa kiasili wa kuzuia mkojo kutoka na hii mara nyingi huwa ni zaidi kwa watoto wadogo ambao bado wanakua na hili huwa sio tatizo, linakuwa tatizo tu kama likiendelea au likiwa kwa mtu mzima na mtu huyo hujulikana kama kikojozi kwa Kiswahili cha mjini.

    Ndugu Millinga niliona kwanza niliweke sawa hili ili tusichanganye maneno haya mawili, na hasa neno bedwetting ambalo lina maana tofauti kabisa na mada yetu. Kwa maana hiyo basi neno ambalo ungetumia hapa kulilinganisha na punyeto ‘labda’ ni wetdreams tu.

    Sasa kufuatana na maana ya wetdream niliyoitoa hapo juu unaweza kuona wazi kwamba kuna tofauti kubwa sana ya mtu kuota na mbegu zake za kiume kutoka wakati akiwa amelala fofofo na mtu anayepiga punyeto. Aliyelala usingizi wa pono akili zake hazitambui kitu wala hana control ya kinachotokea na kuendelea kwenye mwili wake. Lakini pia hapa kama John alivyosema this is a mechanism ambayo Mungu mwenyewe aliiweka ndani ya mwili wa mwanadamu ili mwili huu uweze kuji-regulate bila kulazimishwa na utashi wa mwenye mwili huo.

    Kwa punyeto ni kinyume kabisa kwa sababu hufanywa na mtu akiwa amenuia (amekusudia), tena kama mchangiaji mmoja alivyosema wengine hufanya hivyo wakiwa wanaangalia picha za wasichana au mikando ya ngono. Huu ni uasi wa makusudi kabisa dhidi ya mapenzi ya Mungu. Kwa kifupi hii ndio tofauti yake kubwa.

    Kitu cha muhimu cha kusisitiza kwenye punyeto ni dhamira ya mfanya kitendo hicho. Hakuna anayefanya kitendo cha punyeto bafuni kwake au chumbani kwake awe na dhamira nzuri kiroho. Kumbuka ndugu yangu Millinga, kama mtu hajampokea Yesu na Roho wake kuingia ndani mwake, chochote anachofanya dhamiri yake haiwezi kumshitaki kwa sababu roho yake inakuwa imekufa.

    Lakini Roho wa Mungu akiingia ndani yake, huihuisha hiyo roho na chochote anachotaka kufanya ambacho kipo kinyume na mapenzi ya Mungu, lazima Roho Mtakatifu augue au aachilie uchungu ndani mwake kumuonyesha kwamba hicho anachotaka kukifanya ni kinyume na mapenzi ya Mungu. Nasi tunajua wazi kwamba kila kilicho kinyume na mapenzi ya Mungu si kitakatifu, ndio sababu Roho Mtakatifu anaugua ndani yake kwamba unataka kuingiza kitu ambacho si kitakatifu, kitu ambacho ni cha ufalme wa giza.

    Kwa hiyo mimi nitashindwa kushangaa kama mtu anasema ameokoka na Roho wa Mungu yupo ndani mwake halafu dhamiri yake na Roho aliyeko ndani yake vikae kimya wakati mtu huyo anaendelea na kupiga punyeto! Sio Roho ninayemwamini na ninayemjua jinsi anavyopiga kelele pale mteule wake anapoingiza wazo baya ndani mwake.

    2. Maswali yako kuanzia namba 2-5 naweza kuyajibu kwa pamoja kwamba haya maswali kama nilivyosema ni ya kidunia zaidi, lakini kwa kifupi ni kwamba Mungu wetu ameruhusu watu wake wawe na ujuzi na utalaamu mbali mbali alimradi ujuzi na utalaamu huo hautumiki kinyume na kile Mungu alichokikusudia ndani ya ujuzi huo kwa ajili ya utukufu wake. Haitanipa shida kuwa na benki za damu au benki za mbegu za kiume, alimradi kuna kusudi jema ndani yake.

    Lakini hebu niambie ndugu Millinga, kijana au mwanaume anayepiga punyeto chumbani kwake au bafuni kwake, huyo anaweka benki gani ya mbegu zake huko bafuni? Mbona tunataka kuhalalisha mambo haya kirahisi namna hii kwa ajili ya kukidhi tu tamaa za miili yetu?

    Biblia imetuonya mara nyingi sana kwamba kama tunataka kutimiza matakwa na tamaa za mwili huu, basi tujue tutakufa na kamwe hatutamuona Mungu wala kuingia kwenye Ufalme wake.

    Millinga, hebu soma maneno haya kutoka 1 Wakorintho 6:20;
    “Kwa maana mmenunuliwa kwa gharama. Kwa hiyo MTUKUZENI MUNGU KATIKA MIILI YENU NA KATIKA ROHO ZENU AMBAZO NI MALI YA MUNGU”

    Sasa maswali;
    1. Je, kuna utukufu gani kwa Mungu wetu kwenye mwili wako unapoutumia kufanya kitendo cha kupiga punyeto?

    2. Je, wakati unaendelea na kitendo hicho, kuna ashirio lolote la kumwabudu Mungu wako?

    3. Kama sio kuwambudu, je, kinampa Mungu sifa na utukufu na kuwavuta wengi waende Kwake?

    Unajua ndugu Milinga niliyatafakari sana maswali yako hasa kuanzia namba 2-5 na nikajiuliza maswali kadhaa;

    Je Sara na Ibrahimu walihitaji benki ya mbegu za kiume katika kumpata Isaka?

    Kama hawakuhitaji benki hizo katika umri wao wa uzeeni namna hiyo na bado wakapata mtoto;

    Je, watu leo wanaomwamini Mungu kikweli wanahitaji benki hizo ili kupata mtoto/watoto?

    Je, Hanna naye alihitaji benki za mbegu za kiume kumpata Samweli?

    Kwani Mungu wetu amebadilika kiasi kwamba hatuwezi kumuomba aongeze low sperm count zije kwenye kiwango kinachotakiwa na matumbo ya akina mama ambayo hayazai yakazaa?

    Ndio sababu nilikuambia kuwa maswali yako hayo ni ya kidunia mno badala ya kuwa ya kiroho zaidi. Umeshasema toka mwanzo kwamba watu wengine wanajiona ni wa kiroho sana, lakini hilo ndilo tunalotakiwa kutafakari kila wakati maana biblia inatuambia tufikiri na kutafakari zaidi yaliyo juu aliko Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo kuliko haya ya hapa chini ambayo ni ya kitambo tu.

    Mungu atubariki tuendelee kumtafakari Yeye siku zote za maisha yetu.

  27. Dear, eucalyptos and others, Praise God?

    Reference is made to your post of Sunday, May 6, 2012 at 11:54 am

    I advice you to reread well the verse you quoted ” Genesis 38:1-30″ . Try to read word by word so that you may come up with the reliable interpretation within the context and not out of context.

    I have read many comments of many blog readers trying to quote this verse while trying to relate it to musturbation topic. This is not true. I can I assure all of them that they are interpreting the word of God OUT OF CONTEXT.

    Do want to convice blog readers that Onan was practicing musturbation?

    The true context of this verse is that God killed Onan right away not because he did musturbation but because “he did not want to give an heir to his brother” and not because he was “wasting life”.through musturbation.

    Be blessed as you read and interprete the Bible within the Context.

  28. Ndugu Yeconia,

    Je, hii namba ya simu uliyotupa, ndiyo simu ya Mungu?
    Maana umesema: “Muulize Mungu hata sasa Atakujibu.. Amen +255713254210”

  29. Mpendwa Milinga,

    Swali ni gumu na “down to earth”! Hayo ni kati ya mambo ambayo hututatiza, na wakati mwingine Cults za kikristo hutengeneza mafundisho yenye kufisha kutoka mambo hayo ! Kuna wengine hawaruhusu kabisa waumini wao kuongezwa damu, wengine kwenda hospitalini na mambo yanamna hiyo!!!

    Lakini, unajua ndugu yangu, hakuna jambo jipya hapa duniani! Mambo yooote tunayoyaona na kuyasikia leo hii na siku zijazo, asili yake iko katika kitabu cha Mwanzo. Hicho ndicho kitabu cha MBEGU, huko ndiko zilikopandwa, haya tuyaonayo leo hii ni mazao ya mbegu hizo!

    Basi unapozungumzia huduma za kitabibu na namna yake, iwe ni Blood Bank au Sperm Bank nk, ili mradi ni jambo la kitabibu na si ki ibada, basi hayo yote ni katika ule Ujuzi wa Mema na Mabaya katika tawi la Mema.

    Nayo mambo hayo Mungu ameyaruhusu kwa wasioamini yawasaidie katika safari hii fupi tuliyonayo. Kwa kanisa lililo katika mapenzi yake makamilifu, hilo limepewa njia nyingine isiyoeleweka kwa ulimwengu, NENO lake ambalo ni package iliyobeba mahitaji yake yote! Hebu mtazame Musa na lile kundi la watu milioni mbili, wakiwa jangwani kwa miaka 40, hakuna hospitali ya rufaa wala muarobaini na wala hawalimi mashamba!

    Kwa hiyo mambo hayo yako hivyo, kwa huo “Ujuzi wa Mema na Mabaya”, ndio unayaona makanisa yakijenga mashule, mahosipitali, au wakiwasaidia yatima huku wameongozana na waandishi wa habari!! Ila wao Mungu aliwaambia wakahubiri Injili, wawawekee wagonjwa mikono nao watapona, wameambiwa mkono wa kushoto ukitoa, wa kulia usijue … Hakuna mahali wameambiwa wakajenge mahospitali, bali ni katika rejea hiyo ndio tunaiona Permissive Will ya Mungu katika mambo mengi mema kanisa linayoyafanya, yaani sisi waaminio!

    Na pia usisahau kuwa Ujuzi huo wa Mema na Mabaya umo ndani yetu sote, huo ndio unaitwa DHAMIRA kwa lugha ya kawaida.

    Ubarikiwe!

  30. Dear all. Praise be to our Lord Jesus Christ.

    If we read right from Genesis 38:1-30, we can learn that;
    God dislikes “all means of miss using/wasting the sperms/seeds” even more than harloty etc.
    WHY? He killed Onan right away after he emitted them on ground.
    This happened not becaulse “he did not want to give an heir to his brother” but simply because of “wasting life”.
    I say this because there were other thousand means of giving Er an heir. Two among the thousand means were through his brother Shelah and secondly through Judah (the father) himself- This is what realy happened. God didn’t kill Judah for this nor did he kill Tamar all though they did what was wrong in God’s site.
    If yo read the book of Ruth you will see how the oher means of bringing heir of her late husband happened.

    What I wantt to share is just to emphasize that, the so called masturbation is a sin like other sins and if Go punished Onan for it while his intension want to

  31. Watu huongea mengi wasiyoyajua. Hujilazimisha kujielewesha wasichokijua Kwa njia zao wenyewe..
    Endapo limetokea neno gumu ambalo ndani ya Biblia Takatifu halikuandikwa , kwanini tusiulize Kwa BWANA. Toka lini tumekuwa Na uadui mkuu namna hii Na Mungu BABA , kiasi cha kurushiana maneno as if Mungu yu LIKIZO.
    Jambo HILI nilishamuuliza BWANA siku nyingi Na nikapatiwa majibu .. Nashangaa mpaka Leo bado watu tunaburuzana..
    Muulize Mungu hata sasa Atakujibu.. Amen +255713254210

  32. Mpendwa Haule,nashukuru kwa maoni yako.

    Umesema tunapaswa kuangalia maandiko kwanza kwamba ndio kiongozi. Pili dhamira ndani ya kile tunachotaka kufanya na Roho anakushuhudia nini na ukamaliza kwa kusema kwamba ni dhambi.

    Natamani unisaidie kuelewa hivi kuna andiko lolote (ukiacha tafsiri za watu kwa kujaribu andiko lisiloeleza moja kwa moja) lisemalo KUTOA DAMU MWILINI MWAKO NI HALALI HATA KAMA UNAOKOA MAISHA YA MTU? Kwa nini tusiache watu wakafa badala ya kutoa damu zetu? Kwanza je ni halali kujitolea damu kama wewe umeokoka? Unatumia andiko gani kukubali kwenda Muhimbili au Aghakhan kujitolea damu? Kama unalo andiko linalokulinda usimkosee Mungu unapotolewa damu yako basi hata kutoa Manii zako zikasaidie wengine haitakuwa DHAMBI.

    Kama utasema kutoa damu mwilini mwako ni sawa Kibiblia hasa unapookoa maisha ya watu wanaotaka kufa, utasemaje kuhusu kufanya punyeto ili kutoa mbegu zako zipimwe au usaidie mwenye uhitaji huo kwamba ni Dhambi?

    Nachelea kuamini kwamba wapendwa wengi wanaamini kwamba Manii, shahawa, mbegu, kama zinavyoitwa na wengi wanaonekana kuziweka katika kundi la UCHAFU.

    Watu Wengi wanaamini kwamba mbegu ni uchafu(dini ya kiislam inaongoza kwa fundisho hilo). Ukiadhania kwamba manii au shahawa ni uchafu unaomtoka mwanaume ndipo hata kuzitazama hutaweza.

    Hivi manii tunaelewa kwamba ni majimaji yabebayo chembe hai kamili za mwanadamu kama ilivyo kwenye damu ya mtu? Damu nayo ni kimiminika kibebacho chembe hai nyekundu na nyeupe zinazobeba uhai wa mtu.

    Kila mtu anapaswa kufahamu kwamba pasipo shahawa au manii hangeweza kuzaliwa duniani hapa. Shahawa ni protini fulani hivi zinazosaidia mbegu za kiume kuogelea kwenda juu katika mfuko wa uzazi na kama hazitakutana na yai la kike basi hakutakuwa na kutungwa mimba.

    Kwa sababu nimeuliza maswali hapo juu, naomba kwanza niishie hapa ili kutoa nafasi ya maoni zaidi na majibu kwa maswali yangu ya awali.

    Wapendwa wenye majibu juu ya maswali yangu bado wanakaribishwa. Mpendwa Kinyau, Binti wa Yesu, Lwembe, Orbi, nk bado natamani maoni yenu hasa kwa maswali niliyoyapost hapo juu.

    Ubarikiwe kila mmoja wenu.

    Kauli mbiu: Elimu ya Neno la Mungu haina mwisho.

  33. Ndugu yangu Millinga,
    Shalom
    Mosi, tunaangalia Neno(maandiko)kwanza, ndio kiongozi .
    Pili, Dhamiri ndani ya kile tunachotaka kukifanya, Roho anakushudia nini.

    Mimi kwangu wapendwa ni dhambi.

    Asante

  34. My friend in Christ, Mr Haggai KInyau

    I do agree with you that we need to pray for Pastor Chris because he is also a human being.You know Mr.Haggai no one is perfect but we are perfected by Jesus Christ himself when we pray him.We also need to be strong in the word of God because by so doing that Word of God we have in our heart will makes us knowing the real truth and that truth will decide in our heart and gives us direction on where is to go,what is to follow and do.

    Always our God is the God of all Truth.

    Let us pray each other!!

    Thanked and appreciation

  35. Ndugu Milinga, mi naomba kujibu maswali yako ambayo umeyaita “mazito” na ukaomba yapatiwe majibu “mazito” pia! Sina uhakika kama majibu yangu yatakuwa “mazito” lakini hiyo ndiyo namna ambayo nimeona naweza kujibu.

    1.Tofauti MUHIMU ya Ndoto Nyevu na Punyeto ni kuwa Punyeto ni Kitendo cha Hiari wakati Ndoto Nyevu Siyo Kitendo cha hiari. Mtu hufikiri kisha kuamua kufanya masturbation lakini kwa suala la Ndoto Nyevu mtu hana uamuzi wa kukataa kuota ndoto fulani wakati akiwa usingizini.

    Tofauti nyingine ni kuwa Punyeto husukumwa na Tamaa za Zinaa wakati Ndoto Nyevu huendeshwa na maumbile ya mwili katika kuuweka mwili kwenye hali ya kawaida, kwa kupunguza kiwango cha sperms kinachotakiwa kukaa kwenye mwili pasipo kuleta madhara.

    2. Hakuna tofauti kati ya Kujitolea Sperms na Kujitolea Damu IKIWA TU lengo ni kwa ajili ya Utabibu!

    3. Kutoa sperms kwa ajili ya msaada wa kitabibu si dhambi.

    4. Kutoa mbegu za kiume ili zipimwe kutokana na ushauri wa Daktari Siyo dhambi!

    5. Ninavyoona mimi Siyo dhambi kuwa na sperm Banks kama ilivyo kwa Blood Banks.

    Hayo ndiyo majibu yangu ambayo nimeona nishiriki hivyo kwenye mjadala huu. Hayo ni maoni yangu ambayo yanaweza kuwa na maoni ya mtu mwingine!!

  36. Wapendwa,
    Nimejaribu kutafakari zaidi baada ya maswali yangu hapo juu. Naomba wasomaji wote wanaojua kimombo wasome maelezo haya ya jinsi Madaktari wanavyofanya uchunguzi wa mbegu za mwanaume. Baada ya kusoma naomba majibu ya maswali yangu niliyouliza. Maelezo haya nimeytoa kwenye mtandao Baby Hopes.

    How Is Sperm Count Testing Done in Hospitals?

    Sperm count testing is done as one of the most basic parts of a fertility workup that a couple will go through when they see a fertility specialist. In addition, the fertility specialist will also very likely do an FSH test of the woman to verify that she has not already entered menopause, and a test to verify that her fallopian tubes are not blocked. The sperm count testing that is done actually tests the sperm for other things as well. The test looks at the motility of the sperm, which is the percentage of sperm that are moving forward. It also looks at the sperm themselves, to see if they are abnormal in their composition.

    The semen analysis of which the sperm count testing is a part, does have some preparation. You should avoid sexual activity of any sort, including masturbation, for somewhere between 2 to 5 days prior to the semen analysis. Your health care provider can give you specifics as to how many days you should avoid ejaculation. This is done so that your sperm count will be at its highest level, and that the test will be as accurate as possible. You should not avoid sexual activity for more than a week or two prior to the test, however, because a longer period of inactivity can leave you having actually less sperm. It is also likely that you will be asked to avoid alcohol for several days before the sperm count testing.

    Sperm count testing is done, simply, by having the man ejaculate and then the semen being analyzed in a lab. In some cases, a man may be asked to ejaculate at the office in a private room. In other cases, it is usually acceptable for a man to ejaculate at home into a specific container and then to bring it into the lab or into the fertility clinic at another time. Obviously, your fertility specialist will give you specific instructions as to how the ejaculated semen should be brought in for sperm count testing.

    Ni matumaini yangu kwamba wapendwa wengi wanaojua kimombo watakuwa wameelewa ni kwa nini nimeuliza maswali yangu.

    Hebu tujadiliane kwa upana na tuache kwanza mapokeo tuliyofundishwa huko nyuma kisha tupate hitimisho.

  37. Wapendwa, Naomba msaada wenu!

    Nimesoma maoni ya wengi juu ya mada hii. Asilimia kubwa wanakemea tabia hii kwa nguvu zote. Binti wa Yesu amenibariki sana kwa maelezo yake marefu na baadhi ya maandiko wengi waliyoyatoa.

    Ukweli uliopo unaoaminiwa na wengi ni kwamba punyeto ni DHAMBI. Somo hili kwangu limekuwa gumu zaidi baada ya kusoma maelezo ya wengi na nikazidi kupata maswali mengi zaidi ambayo naomba Binti wa Yesu, Edwin Seleli, Kinyau Hagai na wengine wanisaidie majibu.

    1. Kuna tofauti gani kati ya Ndoto Nyevu (wet dreams or bedweting) na Punyeto. Je nikiota ndoto usiku kisha shahawa zikanitoka kama maandiko ya WALAWI aliyasema Binti wa Yesu nina tofauti gani na aliyefanya punyeto mchana?

    2. Kuna toafuti gani kati ya kujitolea damu (blood donating) na Sperm Donation kuokoa maisha ya watu wanaohitaji huduma hiyo?

    3. Je nikijitolea kutoa mbegu zangu kwa mtu mwenye tatizo la shahawa au mbegu za kiume ili kumsaidia tatizo la ugonjwa wake wa upungufu wa mbegu (low sperm count) nitakuwa nimetenda dhambi kutoa msaada huo?

    4. Hivi watu wanaelewa kwamba unapoenda hospitali kupimwa uwezo wako wa kuzaa (sperm count) wanapaswa kufanyishwa punyeto ili kuweza kupima uwezo wa mbegu zao kama wanaweza kuzaa au laa? Je hapa inakuwa Dhambi kama Doctor atakwambia uzitoe mbegu zako ili zipimwe na mabingwa wa maswala ya uzazi kisha utibiwe tatizo lako?

    5. Je ni dhambi kwa madaktari wetu na Hospitali zetu kuwa na Sperm Bank kama ilivyo kwa swala la kuwa na damu ya akiba mahospitalini (Blood Banks). Hospitali nyingi duniani kwa sasa zina utaratibu wa kuwa na SPERM BANK kwa ajili ya watu wasioweza kuzaa au kubeba mimba kwa njia ya asili (natural means of conceiving).

    Naomba watu wajadili changamoto hizi za kisasa duniani kwa kujitahidi kuondoka ndani ya mtazamo mmoja tu. Naomba watu watoe majibu mazito kwa maswali haya mazito.

  38. asante sana ndugu haggai,

    asante kwa kujibu swali langu, huo mwaka 1999 ndio nilikuwa naanza kidato cha kwanza kwahiyo forsure you are not “the” haggai wa kipindi kile nilichokuwa nakiongelea.

    thanks.

  39. the truth is, kuna watu wengi sana ambao wamekuwa wakimuamini sana pastor Chris na mafundisho yake. Mimi nawashauri sana na kwa moyo wa upendo katika hili, Any human being anaweza kukosea katika jambo fulani!
    Ingawa hata sasa mimi binafsi sina uhakika lengo la Huyu mtumishi wa Mungu kwa kusema masturbation sio dhambi!, lakini kama Mungu aishivyo, Tupone kupitia mafunuo na mafundisho yanayofuatana na ile statement tata ya Pastor Chris.

    Hizi ni nyakati za mwisho, wapendwa tunatakiwa kuwa makini sana, sana, sana if at all tunataka kwenda kuishi na Yesu milele mbinguni.

    thanks to you all who have contribbuted on this confusing matter! May God bless u all as much!

  40. Some, mistakenly, cite Onan in Gen 38:9 as suggesting that masturbation is a sin. In fact, “onanism” has become a synonym for masturbation. But this is obviously an error, and a rather daft one at that. We know what Onan did, for it is spelled out for us in lurid detail; and we know why it was a sin: he was maliciously using and cheating Tamar in way that was wrong. In any case, what Onan was doing was certainly not masturbating, and you have to be pretty dimwitted to miss this.

  41. Ndugu yangu Mkami,

    Bwana Yesu asifiwe. Labda nikujibu moja kwa moja swali lako kwamba sio Haggai huyo uliyekuwa unafanya naye debate huko Bagamoyo. Kwa kifupi mimi nilianza form one mwaka 1975, Moshi sec school na baadaye nikahamia Tumaini Secondary 1977 na kumaliza kidato cha nne huko. Nikaendelea na kidato cha tano na sita Musoma Alliance na baadaye Elimu ya juu huko West Germany by then.

    Hivyo Mwaka 1999, unaousema mimi nilikuwa hapa hapa jijini Arusha nikifanya kazi nikiwa tayari baba wa watoto watatu kama ilivyo sasa. Nilipokuwa Musoma Alliance nilikuwa Mwenyekiti wa UKWATA wa mkoa huo.

    Nadhani nimekidhi kiu yako ndugu Mkami, lakini kama umeokoka kama mimi, sisi wote ni ndugu katika familia ya Mzaliwa wetu wa Kwanza yaani Yesu Kristo.

    Ubarikiwe na Bwana Yesu.

  42. Wapendwa,

    Tunaopenda saaana vipawa na miujiza; Yapendeni na Maandiko!
    Huyo muhubiri ‘hajateleza ulimi’ bali Mungu alisema atawaumbua!

    Basi mwenye Macho na aone, na mwenye Masikio na asikiye!!!

    Bwana na atupe Macho yake!!

  43. samahani , out of topic .
    nilikuwa na rafiki yangu ( pen pal ) anaitwa haggai mwaka 1999 , nilikuwa nasoma kaole secondary na yeye alikuwa anasoma shule moja iko btn bagamoyo and dar( nimeisahau jina) ila tulikuwa tunafanya debates btn our two schools. so everytime nnikisikia hilo jina huwa namfikiriaga , ila kama ninavyosema ilikuwa mwaka 1999, i don’t remember much about him. so kaka hapo juu kinyau haggai are you the one?

    thanks …

    ottawa -canada.

  44. Mpendwa ndugu yangu katika Kristo, Lwitiko Katule.

    Sifa, Utukufu, uweza na Heshima ni kwa Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo ili tuendelee kumtumikia Yeye kwa uaminifu wote tena kwa kuutimiza wokovu wetu kwa kuogopa na kutetemeka.

    Mungu awabariki wote waliopata kitu toka kwenye mchango wangu mdogo sana kati ya mingi iliyoletwa na watumishi wa Bwana kupitia blog hii.

  45. Kaka Haggai, na mimi pia nimeweza kuona jinsi ulivyoweka mistari hii vizuri, nimekuwa nikisoma Biblia yangu lakini sikupata mwanga wa kutosha katika mistari hiyo, lakini umeongozwa kuandika kwa jinsi ambayo nimeelewa na kupata mwanga vizuri sana, asante sana

  46. My friend in Christ, Mr Bida.
    Glory be to God for whatever you have said and I humbly say let us continue praising our Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and Truth. But also above all let’s keep on praying immensely to our God about the Pastors of the type of Chris. They are also human being, thus are subject to err. I’m sure Pastor Chris will realise his mistakes and repent and God is awesome, He will forgive him and start afresh.
    From the way I see masturbation and from whichever sweet words might have been presented by any renown clergy worldwide, it will remain as a sin to me come what may!!
    Thanking you too, Mr. Bida and God Bless you.

  47. Hallo!! Mr.Haggai Kinyau

    I just want to thank you for your deep explanation on this matter.Really i was so confused.You know Mr Haggai those scriptures you had mentioned i used to study many times, but this time it was different.Now i have recognize some truth in those scriptures.But i was also so much impressed with this one of your paragraph.

    A simple question one should ask herself or himself is how does our Almighty God sees the masturbation practice? Is it a pleasing thing before His glorious eyes? When He looks on one of His believers doing masturbation, does He say, ‘congratulation my son because you are doing the right thing’!!

    Ya i do agree with you now that it is true that God isn’t pleased by this practice,I think any one else (who knows his God) who will ask himself about this question will get a clear answer even if he wont read the Bible at that time.

    More about this i think we must all ask for Gods help when we want to give an explanations(especially those great man of God) about those matter in which their answers may seems to bring a negative impacts or contradictions among the people and above all can lead them into wrong interpretation and walk in wrong direction.

    Thank you Mr Haggai.

  48. Mhh! Jamani hiki kitu ambacho pastor Chris anasema siyo dhambi ninataka kusema ya kwamba ni dhambi na ni roho ya kipepo. Hebu kwa wale wale wenye Biblia ya Amplified Bible wasome na waangalie ile amri ya sita ambayo inasema usizini jinsi ilivyoandika. Amplified Bible imeeleza kwa maelezo yaliyojitosheleza kwa habari ya amri ya sita. Masturbation ni dhambi na watu wengi wamekamatwa na hiyo roho na hawajui wanatokaje hapo. Msaada wa Mungu unahitajika kwa mtu yoyote ambaye amefungwa hapo. huwa kutamani au lust haitawali viungo vya mwanaume au mwanamke ile inatawala akili ” mind” mind ikishakamatwa na tamaa mwili utaitika tu. Na kuna namna ya kujifunza na kukabiliana na majaribu ambayo shetani anayeleta.

  49. Yeyote anayeteseka na roho hii na umetamani sana kuacha, Kwanza kabla ya yote, tafuta kujua kwanini unataka kupiga punyeto? Inakuathiri vipi kwenye maisha yako? Na hii tabia chafu umeitoa wapi? Nk na baada ya kupata ufahamu kuhusu tabia hii chafu unayotaka kuiacha, ufahamu wako utakurahisishia, utakupa nguvu ya kuweza kuacha. Sasa, tuone Neno la Mungu kuhusu punyeto.

    Mwanzo 38:9-10 Onani mtoto wa Yuda alimwaga mbegu zake nje, kwa sababu hakutaka kumpa uzao yule mke wa ndugu yake. Mungu alimuua Onani sababu tu, alimwaga mbegu zake nje….

    Mambo ya Walawi imeandikwa sura ya 15:16-17 “Na mtu yeyote akitokwa na shahawa yake, ndipo ataoga mwili wake wote majini, naye atakuwa najisi hata jioni. Na kila nguo, na kila ngozi, ambayo ina shahawa, itafuliwa kwa maji, nayo itakuwa najisi hata jioni”

    Mtu yeyote anayetoa mbegu zake nje, au anayetoa kwenye mazingira machafu. Mtu huyo ni najisi.

    Marko 1:23 “Na mara palikuwapo ndani ya sinagogi lao mtu mwenye pepo mchafu; akapaza sauti…..

    Pepo wachafu wanaozunguka kwenye hewa wakimtafuta mtu gani wa kumwingilia, wanatafuta mtu anayewaza uchafu na wanafanya lolote lililo nje ya Neno la Mungu. Kuanzia kwenye ufahamu wako mpaka unafanya halisi.

    Kwahiyo wanaopiga punyeto pepo wachafu wanamvaa mtu huyo kwa sababu anawaza mambo machafu na kujikuta anafanya kituko hicho kichafu, sasa baada ya kufanya hivyo (kutoa mbegu, shahawa au kufanya ngono) pepo wachafu wanapata uhalali wa kumvaa mtu huyo na kumvika tabia chafu sugu.

    Ili utoke kwenye kifungo hiki, inabidi kuwaza mawazo masafi, kufuata, kujifunza kanuni za utakatifu. Kwasababu kinyume cha najisi/uchafu…ni utakatifu. Kuishi maisha ya utakatifu na kuachana na uchafu wote.

    Marko 1: 27 “Wakashangaa wote, hata wakaulizana, wakisema. Nini hii? Ni elimu mpya! Maana kwa uweza awaamuru hata pepo wachafu, nao wamtii”

    Masturbation ni kitendo kichafu kinacho shawishi kukuingiza kwenye uwepo wa hali ya kufanya mambo machafu (kwasababu kupitia masturbation watu wanatoa mbegu zao nje kwenye uwepo wa roho chafu. Sasa hizi roho zinapata uhalali wa kukumilikisha tabia nyingine chafu) hautaishia kwenye kupiga punyeto tu!!!

    Kitu kinachotakiwa kwako, ni kupata mafundisho kutoka watumishi wa Mungu ambao watakusaidia uache tabia hiyo, watumishi wanaoishi maisha yenye utakatifu, ukisikiliza mafundisho yao, na kumtii Mungu. Ule utii utakupa uwepo mtakatifu kwenye maisha yako ambao utaondoa tabia chafu ya kufanya masturabation.

    Kumbuka kutubu kwenye maombi yako na utamke tatizo hili, pia kataa mazingira yaliyoifunga nafsi yako kukuunganisha kwenye maisha yako na kupiga punyeto.

  50. That is the problem of anointing, it attracts everything if you are not careful. Look how the great man of God like Pastor Chris causes such a spiritual accident. How many people are trusting him? That is how the devil operates. Masturbation is a SIN. I do not care who say otherwise.

  51. My friend in Christ, Patrick Bida.

    There is no complication at all on this issue of masturbation because it is clearly an immoral thing to be practised especialy by the ones who have been saved by our Lord Jesus Christ.

    We do not need to see in the bible the whole list of sins so that we believe that, this and that is a sin or not. The bible is very clear and self explainatory on immoral things like masturbation.

    If you carefully ready the followings verses (just to mention but afew), you will see it vividly that masturbation and anything of that kind are sins. Let’s see few of them as follows;

    “So any person who knows what is right to do but does not do it, to him it is sin” (James 4:17).

    “And that servant who knew his master’s will but did not get ready or act as he would wish him to act shall be beaten with many lashes (Luke 12:47).

    “Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin, but because you now claim to have sight, your sin remains” (John 9:41).

    The last verse can be explained that if you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin, but because you insist ‘that we do see clearly’ you are unable to escape your guilty. Have you seen something there? What means here that once you claim to be saved by Jesus Christ, you eyes are opened to see all kind of sins whether they are overtly or covertly!

    A simple question one should ask herself or himself is how does our Almighty God sees the masturbation practises? Is it a pleasing thing before His gloriuos eyes? When He looks on one of His believers doing masturbation, does He say, ‘congratulation my son because you are doing the right thing’!!

    Tell me my friend Bida, if it happens that you find your biological son in his room or bathroom undergoing masturbation, will you tell him ‘good boy’ keep on doing so?

    It is really astonishing and shocking to hear from Pastor of this dimension to say masturbation is not sin, it really shocked me!

    I wish Jesus would come today to take His church, otherwise no one will be saved!

  52. wow this is really a problem,many time i have been asking to myself, other men of God as well as listening some preachings about this, everyone have his own answers.It seems like there is no clear answer about this,is it true that the bible is silent about this,

    What now is the real Truth of this!,He is also the man of God and he preaches the Gods truth from the Bible ,how can he speaks something which is not true while knows that is not true.Here there is a problem ,Is it just a matter of bibles interpretation!,but inst the same spirit!.how now people differ in this,Who knows the real truth of this! Is it too complicated like that!

    Every christian should take and see it seriously.

  53. He is human being subject to mistakes, wrongs, weakness and faults. The grace is only available in this respect, if what he said is an accidental sort of utterances, assuming that in his sound mind, spirit and as we know him,wouldn’t say what he said.Otherwise if what he said is seriously an intentional and authoritative as far as is concerned, God has no jokes, if he punished Moses the great man of God- not entering the promised land, who is he? who does he think is he anyway?

  54. Pst. Chris amekosea nae ni mwanadamu si Mungu, Roho Mtakatifu amsaidie kusahihisha hapo maana adui anaweza peleka wengi jehanam kwa kauli aliyoisema Pst. Chris, maana dunia ya sasa wapo wengi wanasikiliza na kuamini mtumishi sana kuliko kumwamini Mungu, hasa wapenda miujiza na ishara. Mungu atusaidie.

  55. mmmmh!!! God’s mercy… i dont know what to comment but lets be under the might hand of God’s grace as we need to overcome all kinds of sins regardless its form and content

  56. Masturbation against the real plan of God for sex, it is negating and denial of the real natural pleasure God intended to be got out of sex, so it is displeasing to God and thus a SIN which kills its victim slowly by slowly first by killing the conscious and finally the entire man disconnecting the man’s spirit and the soul and finally the body impaired. I hope Pr Chris whom i surely respect as a servant of God considers doing more spiritual search regarding this.

  57. Any sexual act that is not ‘natural’ is a perversion and sin. There is no way one can masturbate without fantasying (having someone in the picture).

    If Christ said that a sexual act in the heart is an adultery, what about manipulating one’s body in an indecent act while fantasying? The world is drunk with sin. I even hear Christian couples doing ‘oral sex’. Watch out brethren!

  58. I think Pastor Chris Is now wrong. I belive in miracles and a believer should pray to the lord and he or she will get deliverance. MIracles are there and after that comes the testimony.

    I was so deep into secular songs then I left after prayer, and faithful prayers. (cause faith without action is dead.)

    So I listen to strictly gospel stations.

  59. Biblia takatifu inatuonya kwa habari ya kutamani.Yesu alisema yeyote amtazamaye mwanamke kwa kumtamani alikwisha kuzini naye nafsini mwake.Tuombe neema ya Mungu itusaidie kushinda dhambi lakini siyo kuhalalisha kushindwa kwetu.Kweli kabisa mtu akikemea dhambi hii ya masterbation Mungu anampa ushindi mawazo mabaya huondoka,kama isingekuwa dhambi basi isingeondoka kwa kukemea.Siku nyingine nitakuja na reference za neno la Mungu kuhusiana na suala hili.Mbarikiwe sana
