is this a mortal sin if i thought that it wasn’t a mortal sin if i didn’t ejaculate

sorry if this sounds stupid, but im confused and i would like to know
i want to know id i should go to confession

You are incorrect in your basic assumption. What you are doing is a misuse of God’s gift of sexuality.

What you have done is, as you know, a grave sin. You did it knowinly, even if you tried to convince yourself otherwise.

Resolve to cease this practice and go to confession.

This is slave morality…ignore it

This is not an accurate, or even an informative, assessment of what I posted.

Your statement, in addition to being quite incorrect and not founded on Church teachings, is also needlessly insulting. Please remain charitable.

I would also like to direct the OP to this thread where many resources are listed to help you overcome the habit of this grave sin.

May God bless you and give you strength.

rpp is right again! :clapping:

Time to unsubcribe to this thread…:stuck_out_tongue:

Good point. Yep, I got sucked in. :blush:

But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. -Jesus Christ

If you say so!!!
