How come when I sin God answers my prayers?

But when I don't sin he doesn't answer my prayers?

I have struggled with masturbation since I was in jr high school. It was something I tried very hard not to do but it didn't matter what I did, I would always go back to doing it. Now I am 32 yrs old, and I still do it.

I've noticed that since I haven't been doing it, Gos doesn't answer my prayers. But when I would masturbate and ask for forgiveness afterwards, he would always answer my prayers. I just don't get it. So I've decided to start doing it again because I've been praying about certain things but they go unanswered. That never happened when I was doing sinful things.

How come after I sin he blesses me but when I don't sin he doesn't bless me?

    God invented masturbation. Why feel guilty?

    It probably has something to do with divine mercy and compassion. Perhaps God has a "soft spot" in his heart for habitual offenders. Or perhaps, you're simply mistaken. Lets compare notes on Judgment Day and see how it all turns out.

    Who is answering your prayers? Is it God, or is it the devil keeping you on side by giving you some of what you what you want, and using that as a snare to keep you in sin?

    Onan wasn't masturbating so whoever brings up Genesis 38 is a false teacher to be ignored.

    Your understanding is somewhat twisted. The living God is not some sort of vending machine or genie in a lamp that readily grants your desires and wishes.

    Tell these "claimed Christians" AGAIN that

    "GOD RAINS ON THE JUST AND THE UNJUST" (Matthew 5:45) while they are believing "GOD answered my prayers because I am Holy."

    "Masturbation is a waste" and "waste is sinful" according to Scripture.

    "Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity" (Colossians 4:5).

    "But Onan was not willing to have a child who would not be his own heir. So whenever he had intercourse with his brother’s wife, he spilled the semen on the ground. This prevented her from having a child who would belong to his brother" (Genesis 38:9)..

    Conviction . Walking in the word .

    Things idiots at cult meetings say .

    If you're a Christian then every Christian believes in gods plans

    so it's gods plan for you to yank it and answer and not and not answer .

    It's also gods plan to not answer prayer unless the cult says he answered .
