50 Shades of the Same Lie

Amen Pastor! Love is not bondage!

Movies

There was a time back in the day when I was not allowed to go to a movie theater. As a matter of fact, it was not until 1977 (I was 10 years-old) that I saw my first movie in a theater: Star Wars.

You see, the prevailing thought back then was that Hollywood movies were of the devil, sinful, ungodly, etc., and no Christian who claimed to be right with God would go pay money to see one. So much has changed since then, hasn’t it?

Really, even though I have seen my share of films since 1977, I am beginning to feel the pendulum is swinging back in the other direction. Not much is worth seeing anymore, and especially 50 Shades of Grey.

  1. Thank you, Diana, for sharing my post. Why is it important for us to speak out about these things?

      And yes, damage is done. As a parent of teens this whole internet age makes safe boundaries difficult. With one click they enter into places we never had access to. Lord, help us shine on and teach all our kids what love is and what it isn’t.
