Masturbation as Bad as Gambling, Cleric Warns

A Nigerian cleric has warned youth about the dangers of masturbation and gambling, thrusting the two activities together.

Deacon Tope Kolawole of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Living Waters Parish in Abuja preached to the children Sunday morning.

According to Kolawole, masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one’s genitals for sexual arousal or to derive other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm, likening the addiction to that of gambling.

“The Bible says an idle man is the devil’s workshop, so youths need to engage in activities that will take their minds away from things they are addicted to.

“For everyone God has created, there is a talent He gives he or her, so it is up to you to ask God to reveal it to you and get busy with it.

“I know there is a potential in every one of us, but it is left for us to identify what we are good at and begin to use such potentiality to touch the lives of other people,’’ he said.

He urged youths to shun social vices and strive to become productive.

This weekend, Kolawole leant a hand in promotion of a book “Overcoming Masturbation Through My Journey," written by Kate Edward.

In it, she writes on how to overcome addictions such as masturbation and gambling.

“I was addicted too but God helped me to overcome it,” she said of masturbation.

“So, I see this book as a medium to reach out to other youths to tell them the dangers in it and how to come out of it.

“This is because the act is demonic and affects one’s health negative,“ she said.
