From the discussion we had on human sexuality specifically on all on masturbation, homosexuality,pre-marital sex and cosmetic enhancement are those acts merely a sin. We had varied opinions and statements from all those. On some testimonies we've heard from people they actually say that masturbation is not a sin,it's man's innate.On the basis of human sexuality God created human beings with many dimensions, one of which is their unique sexual nature. As men and women, we are physical, intellectual, emotional, relational, and spiritual beings, and thus distinguished from the rest of creation.God created human beings to be in relationship with each other and continually blesses us with diverse powers, which we use in living out those relationships. These include powers for action, reasoning, imagination, and creativity. Sexuality especially involves the powers or capacities to form deep and lasting bonds, to give and receive pleasure, and to conceive and bear children. Many levels of sexual expression are possible between men and women.God has designed the most intimate expressions of sexuality, including intercourse, specifically for the marriage relationship. With this sexual relationship God has given us, we should put in mind all the set limitations, hindrances and don't. Sexuality from the very start is primarily considered sacred yet in today's time majority are now having it for pleasure sake and others for one's own survival due to severe poverty. Though sexual love remains God's good gift, sin permeates human sexuality as it does all of life. When expressed immaturely, irresponsibly, or with hurtful intent, then love — or its counterfeit, coercive power — can lead to harm and even death. Too often lust is mistaken for love, which in turn becomes the rationale for selfish behaviors. When infatuation, lust, and self-gratification take the place of the responsibilities of love, cascading consequences result that can be devastating for partners,

children, families, and society. One of the most rampant problem occurring in our society today is homosexuality. Homosexuality is romantic attraction,sexual attraction or sexual activity between members of the same sex or gender. As an orientation, homosexuality refers to "an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectionate, or romantic attractions" primarily or exclusively to people of the same sex. This issue has contributed to certain diseases like HIV aids, and the like. This can be a sin if viewed by some but others not. Another issue talked about is Pre-marital sex is sexual activity practiced by persons who are unmarried. Pre-marital sex have contributed to broken relationships, sanity of sexuality and its ultimate meaning and purpose. Sexuality has degraded at some point merely of this. Cosmetic enhancement the act of pursuing cosmetic surgery beyond corrective procedures. The idea is to enhance, or improve upon the quality of one's natural appearance. Oftentimes women will choose to prevent the natural processes of aging through various procedures. This term may be used either positively or negatively depending on the amount of procedures a given individual chooses to get. But if used for beauty purposes for the sake of vanity this would be the other way around.

God has given us the liberty to decide on things, he has given us this capacity to choose on things that will suit us. Not to worsen us but to make life a lesson to be learned and experienced. Thus, we should not blame him for our own lapses and errors. Taking part in every action and doing we do is the least and simplest thing we could do. We have our inner self and we knowingly have the intellect towards things that would put us to sin and bring us to harm.
