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…
