I came across this page and found myself nodding and muttering, "Mm-hmm" on several occassions:

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2010/09/10/how-did-christianity-warp-your-sexuality/

I was at work last night and thinking about the depression and anger that plagued me throughout much of my teen years, and I think much of it can be linked to Jesus's words about lust in Matthew. I often felt guilty and angry when I felt any kind of sexual urge, and since adolescence is a time when we guys feel that frequently, there was a ton of anger and guilt. It wasn't until fairly recently that I saw a minister on TV teach that the purpose of those passages wasn't to make us feel guilty or repress our sexuality, but to emphasize God's grace and to make us realize how much we need Him in our daily lives. It was like, "Gee, NOW someone tells me." 

I recently deleted my Christian Mingle profile because I don't want kids and, because of that tremendous spritual burden, I've pretty much rendered myself asexual.

Rant over, prayers appreciated.

I pray you discover the joys of watching porn while masturbating.  Grin

Just a brief update to proudly announce that I'm being delivered from this deception by God. Hallelujah!
