Over the last few days social media has been abuzz with talk of the new movie 50 Shades of Grey, which is based on the book of the same name that has sold over 100 million copies and has been translated into 52 different languages. Initial signs are that the movie is going to break box office records.
Even some professed Christians have said to me that the book and movie aren't anything to be concerned about.
However, from the reviews I've read so far I'm deeply concerned. The book and movie try to glamorize fornication, pornography, BDSM, torture, and domestic violence.
Our society has abandoned the anchor of biblical morality and is lost in the treacherous sea of immorality. Sadly many are unaware they are lost and in danger of being shipwrecked when the consequences of their abandonment of wisdom hits home.
Many people are so lost that they have no idea what true love actually looks like. Here's one comment from the Facebook page 'Boycott 50 Shades of Grey':
Here's another angry comment from the same page from another hater showing us what they know about how to do good without dogma (God) by telling others to get F%$#ed:
Truly, truth is the new hate speech. Black is white, hate is love, and bad is now good. The only unforgivable sin in our modern world is to say that sin exists, because clearly it's wrong to tell people that something is wrong, right??!! And like the proverbial frog being slowly boiled alive most people aren't even aware of what's going on.
