I read this ladies blog this morning. I wanted to share it with you.
What the Bible Says About 50 Shades Of Grey
This blogger has posted some valid thoughts on this subject. My thoughts .... it's labeled as erotica. Erotica is nothing more than pornography in other forms. It can be a painting, a drawing, a sculpture, a photo, or yes, even the written word.
Think about it. If your Lord, in which you profess to believe was reading the book or watching the movie right along with you ..... would you still read or watch it? I'm guessing that you would be embarrassed to have Jesus know that you are viewing or reading erotica / pornography. Well, guess what .... He sees what you do. Everything.
Let's take this one step further. Do you want your children to think that you approve of the character's behavior? I mean ... you read it or you watched the movie. They know that you did. Someday they will read the book or watch the movie and they will think , "Mom watched this and she liked it so it must be okay. It must be how men treat women. " Really? Do you want your daughter to allow a man to dominate her that way? Do you want your son to treat women as the man in the movie does? Really?
The movie, the book, uses your own human desires to trick you into believing that such behavior is good. It's not. The porn industry spurs human trafficking. Human trafficking enslaves our young ..... sometimes very young .... and uses them for sexual pleasure. They are mistreated, abused, and thrown away when they are no longer usable .... just like the perverts throw away a used condom.
If we let these kinds of movies and books become "okay .... because everyone is doing it, everyone is watching it, everyone is reading it" in our society .... then we are nothing more than whores and pimps. We condone the evil that goes along with erotica and pornography when we allow it to be in our lives.
Don't justify this book / movie because it makes you feel good. The good feeling is fleeting and the regret and morose that follows will last much longer.
And the next time that you park your butt on a church pew or say a prayer and profess to be a Christian .... stop and think, "What was I thinking?" My guess is that you weren't thinking with your head or your heart. You were thinking with your loins.
I'll probably take some flack for posting this. It may embarrass some of the ones that I love. It may cause some ridicule to be flung against me. I don't care. I have to stand up for what I believe and when I feel that something is wrong .... I have to say something.
50 Shades of Grey is evil disguised as a sexually stimulating piece of entertainment.
