4 Reasons Fifty Shades of Grey Will Not Spice Up Your Sex Life

Creation Swap. Matt Grueber, Closed Doors4 Reasons Fifty Shades of Grey Will Not Spice Up Your Sex Life

Fifty Shades of Grey is a box office hit before it even hit the box office for Valentine’s Day.

I can’t say that I’m surprised that over 100,000 million (give or take) are interested in this trashy erotica. But the part that blows me away is that even Christians are getting into it. And it disturbs me thinking that my brothers and sisters are lining up in droves see this “soft” porn movie all in the name of spicing up their sex lives.

Okay, I’ll confess—yes, my pillow talk could use a little boost. But, friend, this is NOT the way for you, me or for anyone to go about it. What’s being propagated here is, well, sick. Sin sick. Plain and simple.

Filthy Shades of Grey 

So what’s the big deal about Fifty Shades of Grey anyway? Let me fill you in.

The plot is, basically, a tawdry sexual relationship between an unmarried couple, which should send up a red flag right away. The sex saga between main characters Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey gets confusing and just plain gross. (And the fact that his name is Christian really makes me cringe.) They hook up, but only on his terms, and, oh yeah, he’s into BDSM—bondage, dominance/submission, sadism and masochism.

The BDSM of Fifty Shades of Grey is a completely unbiblical, warped manifestation of sexual interaction. This version of sex stirs our rebellious flesh by causing us to dwell and act on fantasies that are dishonoring to both people and to God. And here’s the tricky part—it may actually add the zing you think you want to your marriage. But it isn’t the zing God desires for us. God has better in mind for this sacred union.

So, here are four reasons (out of a million) why Fifty Shades of Grey will NOT add to what God intended for your marriage bed…

  1. Fifty Shades of Filthy is the most accurate description I have read, Christy. And as a reader, I USED to devour all the popular material (Notice that word does not say literature), yet I have no desire (no pun intended) to even crack a cover open or walk thru the movie theater to watch 50 shades of degradation. debasement, defilement.

    God in the midst of a married couple’s union is a true celebration of love. That’s what I choose to celebrate this Valentine’s Day. Here’s my question-Would I Want God Watching Me Watch 50 Shades Of Grey? I do not think so. #TrueLove #GodlyLove

    Thank you, Christy, for joining the dance today at #DanceWithJesus Friday.


  2. Amen! Not seeing it, didn’t read it. I don’t need to add more yuck to my marriage. I want God’s best for it. Posted on Facebook an urging for people not to see it or read it. Got such an interesting comment from someone who obviously thinks it is okay. My heart breaks for those who are deceived by Satan in this area. Stopped in from #GraceTruth


  3. Christy,

    Thank you so much for speaking out against this! My husband and I went to the movies last Friday and there was a line around the building to see this movie. I couldn’t help but pray for each of the women (and some men) as I passed by. Praying that the truth of Christ will impact hearts and marriages through your obedience to speak out.

    I’m featuring you at Grace & Truth this week! Feel free to stop by and grab a featured button!



    • Hi Christie,
      Thanks for your encouragement and also for featuring! That is an awesome way to help get the word out!
      I felt like I needed to address the very real temptation for some to indulge in 50 shades. Most articles I have seen on the matter don’t admit that it could lure someone expecting a love story right into a web of lies instead.
      I echo your prayer that God would show Himself strong and that He would help people who are searching to look no further than Him!
      Thanks for connecting! 😊


  4. I love your post Christy, and especially love how you gave Biblical explanations for why 50 Shades is trashy. I appreciated you saying how bondage is simply against the freedom available in Christ. Duh! Why would we want to be enslaved again? Appreciate your writing, friend.
