Here are excerpts of his masturbation article, misconceived and wrongly judged:
Bro eli used 1cor7:29;31 which speaks of sexual restraint as you have to live as though unmarried, and not abusing it, in this regard is marriage. The Greek word used for “abusing” is “katachraomai” which means “to misuse”, meaning, we must not live in the ways of this world, the lifestyles of this world permitted for us, to misuse it for evil, such as sex. Thus pointing inevitably to the reality that we must not use marriage as a ground for our sexual perversion such as masturbation as masturbation per se under normal circumstances, without any compulsive element, is sin.
Masturbation is lasciviousness, meaning, unlawful sexual act. It is a sin that merits hell, if done accordingly.
a lascivious gesture.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Lasciviousness is any unlawful expression of lust such as masturbation, unlawful in the sense that there is no law permitting anyone to masturbate under normal circumstances thus being classified as “lasciviousness”, it must be avoided which as god said, merits hell.
Considerably, in cases of compulsion as bro eli emphasized, “force of circumstances” such as when intolerable sexual urge brought about by high level of sex hormones which if beyond self-control you do it, it is logically, not wilfully consented thus, it is not sin.
Whatever you do, it must be wilfully.
2 Corinthians 9:7
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give (contribution, judgment, gospel) not grudgingly, or of ANAGKE (constraint, force, compulsion): for God loveth a HILAROS (willing) giver.
Meaning, giving judgment on certain issues, on personal matters must not have elements of compulsion. You must not be forced to do something or you must not do things by force regarding religious practices such that when a situation arise, such that judgment is not wilful, but forced, it is not considered sin, if you do evil things like for example, a kleptomaniac stealing. He don’t sin bec he was forced to do it by intolerable internal compulsion.
Only things done wilfully merits punishment.
Bec masturbation, due to high level of sex hormones, which naturally, if it forced you to it, it is in this occasion wherein you do not sin. It is not by wilful consent.
At this instance, you are forced to masturbate whereas actions to be considered punishable, must be wilful evil.
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Bro eli enumerated some situations which he thinks is not sin.
Masturbating as an alternative bec a wife is pregnant or has “monthly visit” and saying, I don’t recommend masturbation as scapegoat for immoral sexual addiction, bro eli apparently is saying, logically, masturbation is permitted only when youre under “force of circumstances” or if youre forced by internal compulsion which causes involuntary responses,
If youre forced to do greater evil such as infidelity, bec of these compulsive elements brought about by natural sexuality, the intolerable sexual drive, wherein it push you to another woman for sex, masturbation as the second option must be preferred if by any chance there is no other option.
Personally, that is my logical analysis of bro Eli’s teaching.
