Fifty Shades of Grey

I want to take a moment to strongly encourage you not to watch the movie fifty shades of grey. I believe it will be destructive and corrupt to your heart... 

I will tell you up front that I don't know a lot about the movie or the book. In fact every time the trailer has been shown I've looked away so I haven't even seen the whole thing. I haven't read any excerpts from the book and I haven't asked anyone who has read it what it was about. But I know enough about it to know that I don't want to have have any of the images or "fantasies" that it creates to be in my mind. If a movie that is based mostly on sex and sexual content is promoted as "provoking " women's fantasies then I know that it is a destructive movie for any female to watch- Married, single, old, or young- No woman will come out of that theater a better person with a stronger marriage or more confidence then before she filled her mind with that garbage. 

Our minds retain a lot. && watching other people have sex and be involved in erotic behavior will definitely plague your mind && your heart. It is rated R for GRAPHIC NUDITY! My husband and I have made a choice not to watch sex scenes or nudity because we don't want images of others in our minds. Watching other people in intimate situations does not raise ones confidence or create more intimacy in your own life. We want to be as pure as we can be for each other and to honor God. If fantasies are provoked by watching another man or woman have sex ... will they be fantasies about your husband or fantasies about this grey guy or how your husband could be more like him? What will you be thinking of when you are intimate with your husband or future husband when you have all of these fantasies and images flashing through your mind? 

Enough about my opinion...We are given very good counsel when we are told to keep impurity from us. Let's see the opinion of who really matter- God.

Romans 1:24 
Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them

Their bodies were "dishonored". They were lusting after impurity. 

Matthew 5:28
but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Will you be lusting after greys naked body as you watch him partake in sex acts?

Galatians 5:19-21
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Jude 1:7
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

I believe that the things you will see and the fantasies of erotic acts is an UNNATURAL DESIRE.

Ephesians 5:3
But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

FILL YOUR MIND WITH PURE THINGS... Not impure things like you will see in Fifty Shades of Grey. 

Proverbs 4:23
Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.

We must protect our hearts!!! It is so important. 

Colossians 3:2-5
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

Set your mind on things above. Fifty shades of Grey and it's erotic sex scenes and impure relations between the two characters is not GODLY.  Put to DEATH sexual immortality && impurity. That's hat this movie is promoting!

Please please don't fill your minds and hearts with this impure ungodly worldly nonsense. Yes I will call it for what it is. DESTRUCTIVE. Its out to kill steal and destroy... Marriages, views on relationships and sex before marriage and much more. The question is - will you let it?
