On Valentine’s Day the world is going to be treated to a very much hyped movie, 50 Shades of Grey, which depicts the relationship between this wealthy, handsome man and a naive young woman. I have not read the book but I have read some reviews of the book and quite a few say it is poorly written. So how does this trash get to be made into movie? Please note: while returning to my table in the Barnes and Noble Starbucks cafe from the bathroom, my eyes fell on an end-cap display of not just 50 Shades of Grey, but two more of them. A trilogy of darkness.
This world has fallen so deeply into darkness that many will go to see it and many will start to practice whatever is shown on the screen. So we move from sex between a husband and wife which God said is good, into something dark and twisted. Evil has already become the norm in society and many embrace darkness and rebel against the Light. No one wants anyone to tell them what to do. That’s what Satan said and found himself tossed out of Heaven. Humans reason, “Well whatever goes on behind closed doors is no one’s business.” True. But your perversion is a poison that will infest all other areas of your life.
The infestation of evil knows no bounds. This sort of trash, 50 Shades of Grey, gets made into a movie because Satan wants it out there as one of a series of final attacks on mankind to bring humanity so far down into the slime pit of darkness it will never get out save Divine intervention of Jesus’ return. Christians should not under any circumstance go see this movie because once it is in your head, you can’t get it out. If you put on a white glove and go out into your backyard after it rains and stick the gloved hand into the dirt, the dirt does not become “glovey”. It is so important to guard your mind because the enemy will not stop bombarding you. There are some days I just want to put aluminum foil on my head to keep out his crap. But our best weapon is calling out to Jesus. Just saying His name carries a lot of power. The devil has to submit and leave.
But I cannot emphasize enough to stay close to Christ and if your faith feels shaky go to Him and He will restore you. This movie has permeated other markets out there, too. I was looking on Sephora’s site for something which I can’t remember if it was a lipstick or something else. Anyway, I noticed under new items they had a makeup set by Makeup Forever that was from the movie. It seems that the makeup artist for the movie used certain colors on Dakota Johnson, the actress, and now it was being marketed and the box it all comes in also comes with a little key to unlock a compartment. I’m guessing this is to correspond to the key that Christian Grey has for his special room where the S&M take place. Urban Decay, another cosmetic company, has come out with a lipstick set in a grey box that is called “Full Frontal”. What in blazes is a full frontal lipstick? I am sure that by Valentine’s Day there will be a flood of 50 Shades of Grey items so that, unless you live on the moon, it will be impossible to escape it. Keep in mind, one of Satan’s best weapons is seduction and he is very good at it.
I dread to think where this is all leading because 50 Shades is only the tip of the iceberg. (especially when there is the potential for two more movies since there are two more books)
You have to guard your mind and heart because we are at war. We are citizens of Heaven, of the mighty Kingdom of God, and we must uphold all that our Lord wants us to uphold and not get soiled, defiled and corrupted by the seductiveness of our enemy. Not sure if this is going to be the only post on the subject either.
