Do You Think You Can Get Your Innocence back? - March 27th 2013, 06:07 PM

Title says it all : do you think it is possible to get your innocence back?


I for one just read a great article that you could through Gods help. You would never get back your ignorance of sin, but you can live as if its not there. I recently started cursing and eventually started masturbating...both of which I consider dirty. I'm trying to stop and get my innocence back...but I mean, am I fully non-innocent?? What else is there to lose in my innocence?! Do you think i can regain my innocence?

Well, I personally wouldn't define "innocence" or "dirtiness" the same way that you would, but in general, I don't believe you can.

Trying to deliberately be naive and shut your awareness to the things going on in the outside world would be stupid, but you still wouldn't "forget" it completely.
The innocence of a 4 year old is in the naivety of the 4 year old. Whether it's a good thing or not is very much debatable.

No. I think that one can change oneself for the better and live a purer life, but it's impossible to get innocence back once it has gone.

On a side note, I don't think that masturbating is 'dirty' at all. It's healthy and natural and everyone does it.

I don't believe in innocence in this kind of sense. I guess you learn knowledge, and through knowledge, you lose a sense of naive-ness about the world? But other than that, I don't believe in sin in the way that you describe. Even in Christianity, I thought that we were born with sin? So...you were never "innocent" in that sense. And in my sense, I don't really believe in any of that. I think you're just a person with choices and mistakes, and that's okay. Just be yourself and do what makes you happy and content with yourself.

Hmm, well, i said never, and that stands for me and for me only... I have done some worser stuff than masturbating and cursing... Things i wont say in public. But no, not even God can bring back my innocence...

No, I think once you've lost the innocence you had as a child, it's gone forever. Doesn't make you a bad person at all, though. But really, you wouldn't want to have that innocence as an adult because once you're an adult, it's not innocence really, it's naivety.
