Anything that you do that can’t give you confidence to come to the presence of God is a sin.
To wander away from the law of God is a sin
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1 John 2:16 KJV
Sin is divided into 3 departments, any sin you will commit in this world is under these three department
Lust is simply a desire or a craving or longing for what is forbidden
Why do we masturbate? Why do we fornicate? Why are we addicted?
Addiction is first spiritual before natural, sin comes in like a king and reigns.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
Romans 6:12 KJV
If sin is the king then you cannot have any control
How does sin operate?
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
James 1:14-15 KJV
Some lies of the devil is that since you don’t fornicate oya masturbate.
How can you come out?
Name it and be sincere with it, that’s the first step from coming out.
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
Proverbs 28:13 KJV
until you are genuinely tired of it, you can’t come out. If you are still enjoying it, am sorry you can’t come out
Lastly Genuinely repent
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
2 Corinthians 7:10 KJV
