A place to love and accept the people who think about and live Mormonism on their own terms.
I was thinking about this today. My previous response may have overthought it a bit. Service is masturbatory if it is for the benefit of the giver of service and them alone. If others are helped then it is not masturbatory, cause it's sex. And just because another person is involved doesn't make it non-masturbatory.Emower wrote: ↑Mon Dec 30, 2019 12:53 pmMaybe its just me and my cynical mind, but I think most (not all) charitable acts are masturbatory in some form or another. Do people give because it makes them feel good? Because it fits with what they view of their personality? Because they want to honor some dead person? Because it helps their tribe? Dont get me wrong, I appreciate charity but if you negatively view charitable acts that seem to help the person doing it you will be ruling out a large bit of charity that happens.
