A movie is hitting our box offices that seems to be causing much controversy and conversation. You may be asking yourself, “Should I go see this movie?”
Why would you?
- Perhaps you’re curious. Curiosity has caused me to take foolish actions and try stupid things. Many I wish I could take back but you know how that goes.
- You feel left out. No body wants to be that kid who didn’t get invited to the party. I hate feeling left out and it has caused much insecurity in me. We all want to be with the “cool kids” and know the pain of being left out.
- Sex has become boring. Maybe you’ve been married a long time and the sparks in the bedroom have diminished. Or maybe you haven’t been married very long but you thought sex would be oh-so-much-better. Either way you may be thinking that this movie will give your sex life a boost and some new energy. Maybe you’re hoping it can renew your marriage.
Allow me to offer you a much better idea to spice up your love life. Lock your door. Put on some romantic music. Light a candle. Slip into something sexy. Enjoy each other with reckless abandonment.
Then, treat each other well all day and every day. And keep what happens in the bedroom, in the bedroom! What happens there should stay between husband and wife. It is sacred, created by God, a mystery for us to enjoy.
The movie has been described as soft-core porn. Soft. Hard. Gray. Let’s call it what it is. It’s pornography.
This is a black and white issue with no gray area and boils down to this:
- If you view pornography and want to view more, go see the movie.
- If you like watching men dominate women, go see the movie.
- If you enjoy watching women be demeaned, go see the movie.
- If you like to see excessive nudity, go see the movie.
- If you want to promote watching a man inflict bodily harm on a young woman, go see the movie.
- If you enjoy hearing God’s name misused more than a dozen times, go see the movie.
- If you want to use your money to promote more smutty movies in the future, go see the movie.
Go over to Plugged In at Focus on the Family for a full review of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.
There is enough pain and violence in the world. There is way too much domestic abuse. Go visit a women’s shelter and see how many of them would like to watch the movie. Women are not property and we need to teach our young people how to respect and love each other. This movie is a sad direction of the moral decay of our country.
Instead of putting energy into viewing filth, work on strengthening your family. Vow to put your spouse first and commit to loving them with all your being. Show love and admiration.
