Matthew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”
We’re admonished by Scripture to guard our hearts, including our choices in entertainment! Any entertainment would lead us away from whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable or praiseworthy supposed to be avoided.
Today, the release of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey will be a true challenge for everyone called Christian!!! The Hollywood chose the Valentine’s Day to release this movie deceiving people, making people think is relationship, love story movie but the truth is, Fifty Shades of Grey is real porn movie, promoting depiction of bondage/discipline, dominance/submission and sadism/masochism as normal and pleasurable, promoting premarital sex and sexual deviance.
Don’t be surprised if next week or following weeks will increase the domestic violence, will increase the addictions to deviant sexual behaviors.
“Movies with the message that women must find their worth through sexuality are exploitive. God doesn’t place our value in our sexuality, but rather who we are as people and our relationship to each other.” said Michael Bartel, co-founder of FREE International, an Assemblies of God ministry assisting human trafficking victims.
Also, Pastor Rick McDaniel stated: “The movie does more than raise questions focusing on BDSM stuff. It makes it relevant to talk about sexuality and marriage, and the related topics of adultery, divorce, pornography, cohabitation, and gay marriage. Fifty Shades puts too much focus on fantasy and removes the reality of the effort it takes to make a marriage. To enjoy the gift of sex we need to understand human sexuality through the lens of God’s morality.”
As the Author of intimacy, God wants us to experience life-giving closeness with Him and with our spouse. This requires us to fully trust God’s Word and reject our culture’s over-sexualized, demoralizing views.
If you are truly a Christian, think twice before buying tickets to this movie. With this money you can do something more useful and practical for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Days!!!
