INDEX

a vileness of this sort. For similar vices the wicked inhabitants of 

Palestine were destroyed, and their lands given to the Hebrews. For 

a single violation of the seventh commandment, one of the most notable 

Bible characters, David, suffered to the day of his death. Those who 

imagine that this sin is not a transgression of the seventh commandment 

may be assured that this most heinous, revolting, and unnatural vice 

is in every respect more pernicious, more debasing, and more immoral 

than what is generally considered as violation of the commandment which 

says, "Thou shalt not commit adultery," and is itself a most flagrant 

violation of the same commandment. 

 

Those who imagine that they "have a right to do as they please with 

themselves," so long as no one else is immediately affected, must learn 

that we are not our own masters; we belong to our Creator, and are 

accountable to God not only for the manner in which we treat our 

fellow-men, but for how we treat ourselves, for the manner in which 

we use the bodies which he has given us. The man who commits suicide, 

who takes his own life, is a murderer as much as he who kills a 

fellow-man. So, also, he who pollutes himself in the manner we are 

considering, violates the seventh commandment, although the crime is in 

both cases committed against himself. Think of this, ye youth who defile 

yourselves in secret and seek to escape the punishment of sin. In Heaven 

a faithful record of your vile commandment-breaking is kept, and you 

must meet it by-and-by. You are fixing your fate for eternity; and each 

daily act in some degree determines what it shall be. Are you a victim 

of this fascinating vice, stop, repent, reform, before you are forever 

ruined, a mental, moral, and physical wreck. 

 

Self-Murderers.--Of all the vices to which human beings are addicted, 

no other so rapidly undermines the constitution and so certainly makes 

a complete wreck of an individual as this, especially when the habit 

is begun at an early age. It wastes the most precious part of the blood, 

uses up the vital forces, and finally leaves the poor victim a most 

utterly ruined and loathsome object. If a boy should be deprived of 

both hands and feet and should lose his eyesight, he would still be 

infinitely better off than the boy who for years gives himself up to 

the gratification of lust in secret vice. For such a boy to become a 

strong, vigorous man is just as impossible as it would be to make a 

mammoth tree out of a currant bush. Such a man will necessarily be 

short-lived. He will always suffer from the effects of his folly, even 

though he shall marry. If he has children--he may become 

incapable--they will be quite certain to be puny, weak, scrofulous, 

consumptive, rickety, nervous, depraved in body and mind, or otherwise 

deprived of the happiness which grows out of the possession of "a sound 

mind in a sound body." 

 

Let us notice a little more closely the terrible effects resulting from 

this most unnatural and abominable vice.
