That was my god, my idol, and it went hand in hand with Internet and pornography because that computer –I was there, literally in my heart, bowing down and worshiping that as my god. Well around 18 years old, I really hated the sin of pornography.
And again, I know of another who dreamed he was being jerked off by his master, and, later he was bound to a pillar and then he received many blows…” οἶδα δέ τινα δοῦλον, ὃς ἔδοξε τὸν δεσπότην αὐτοῦ δέφειν, καὶ ἐγένετο τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ παιδαγωγὸς καὶ τροφός· ἔσχε γὰρ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶ τὸ τοῦ δεσπότου αἰδοῖον ὂν τῶν ἐκείνου τέκνων σημαντικόν. Soon, one of the interlocutors stops “because the skin is irritated by masturbation.” (῾Οτιὴ τὸ δέρμα δεφομένων ἀπέρχεται, 29)] The verb is not common, to say the least, so later commentators found it necessary to gloss it and explain Aristophanes’ joke.
Through the explanations of the joke, it immediately becomes less funny, and the language used in the commentaries. For, when men touch their genitals they don’t complete as they began, but they move more eagerly towards the secretion of semen.
” (2 Samuel 9:8) and that was after David had said “You shall eat at my table all the days of your life.” I say the same, why did the Lord pay regard to me, a dead dog, a flea, a worm?
I don’t know, I start to say I don’t know why he paid regard to me, but I do because Is.
Zeno also does not disapprove of masturbation, which is shameful in our culture.
We have also learned that others practice this wicked habit as if it were a good thing.” οὕτω καὶ τῶν σοφῶν ᾧ μὲν οὐκ αἰσχρόν, ᾧ δὲ αἰσχρὸν ἐδόκει τοῦτο εἶναι.
One of the greatest, I guess, deceitful things about any sin, is the pursuit of the sin.
As you’re pursuing the sin, there is exhilaration and excitement, but once you gain the sin, and you satisfy yourself with the sin, then it just leaves you barren and empty. I had more joy being a video game character and worrying about the level-ups and the gear that my character had than my real life character.
καὶ ὁ Χρύσιππος δὲ ἐν τῇ πολιτείᾳ δογματίζει τόν τε πατέρα ἐκ τῆς θυγατρὸς παιδοποιεῖσθαι καὶ τὴν μητέρα ἐκ τοῦ παιδὸς καὶ τὸν ἀδελφὸν ἐκ τῆς ἀδελφῆς.
