Hi, Im no different than the rest of you guys struggling with lust.
I think my main problem however is that I simply can’t see how it’s such a big sin, I mean its not like Im jerking of instead of making love to my wife or anything (Im single btw so that couldn’t be) in that case I could see how it’s ruining the chance of a new life,
I know that the typical argument is that sex is only ment for reproduction and I understand that argument, but I simply can’t see the harm in a little stress release by myself.
I know that the church sees it as a severe sin so I try not to do it obviously, but my lack of understanding makes it hard not to give in to the lust.
I’m a catechumens btw and Im unable to confess until Easter due to the fact that that’s when I’m being initiated into full communion (Im a convert) so the thought also sneaking in that Im free to commit sins until then, becouse Im prohibited from making a confession until them.
It’s like, it doesn’t matter how much Im confessing then so why not give in to the lust.
I know it’s not like that and Im feeling horrible afterwards.
If there are any other converts here please give me an advise how to not give into this sins.
Thanks in advance for any answers I may receive.
Yours in Jesus and Mary
