No Shades of Grey - It's Black and White - Pornography is Pornography

Dirty books, Psalm 101:3, 50 Shades of Grey
The book and movie Shades of Grey represent the increasing acceptance of pornography in modern culture, but Scripture calls it harmful immorality...

An Englishwoman I met in Croatia told me she was shocked when she downloaded Fifty Shades of Grey to her Kindle. Her friend recommended it, but she found it "profane."(1)

I was surprised when it became so popular among mainstream women that it was dubbed "mommy-porn." And I was shocked when I heard a few Christians defending it.
 
Sometimes we modern-day Christians see things in shades of gray when they are actually black and white, and this “mommy-porn” is one example.

No shades of gray here: We should not be entertaining ourselves with anything that glorifies immorality. It doesn’t enhance our relationship with God or our husband, no matter what anyone says.*

We mock God’s design when we enjoy books or movies that glorify illicit sex in any form, but especially when associated with bondage. 

It’s black and white: Women who sow to please their sinful nature, will reap destruction (Galatians 6:7,8). This book and movie will damage our souls, whether we realize it or not.

LA Times,      Academy of Women's health
May we glory in godly womanhood, in clean sexual pleasure in the context of love and marriage, as God designed it...not as man has perverted it.

  2. I am so happy to see this post. I often get criticized for going against this book and movie, but God's opinion is so much more important. It seems like I can't get away from it anymore. Even Ellen DeGeneres talks about it on her show day after day, which makes me sad because the show used to be good, clean humor. We need to start paying attention to better forms of entertainment.

  4. I have not read this book but I have read so much negative reactions from many women.
    I am grateful for this insight.

    I guess I will not venture into purchasing let alone reading the book.

    God Bless and thanks for sharing at the link up.

  5. I am thankful to read such negative reviews and comments on this book/movie. I have not, and will not, read or watch such... and I have been shocked and very disappointed that this is even a needed rebuke for people in general... and especially for Christian women who should know better. Thank you for writing this.

  6. Thank you for this. I have been going through much weariness after warning a woman who asked me to mentor her about this movie.
    She informed me she had read all the books and that it was a rescue love story. It went ugly fast.
    The backlash was huge and I really began to believe her -she was telling me I was I was judging her, when really it was out of love. I warned her about the movie and what it would plant in her.
    She not only ' unmentored ' me, but also unfriended me. And dragged several other new believers into the field to hate me too. Tough stuff.
    Clinging to God and asking for strength to continue to speak the truth in love.(even when you know it can lead to persecution.)

    1. I'm glad you stood firm, Kimmie.
      I'm sorry that this other woman is deceived by this movie/books.
      and I'm sorry you were persecuted for it.
      You did the right thing.
      The right thing is often the hard thing.

  7. Is people like you the world need to be saved. Someone who will tell the truth as it is.
    Thanks for educating and rebuking us on this. Pornography is a strong hold to one's life that destroyes completely.
    God bless you

  8. A friend received the book from her daughter in Australia as a gift .... she was horrified when she opened the book. Her daughter apologized as she had no idea of the content. We can be so fooled by a cover.
