Fifty Shades of Grey – Toxic Sludge for the Empty Soul

Or rather… 50 Shades of Lust

This book and now movie are nothing more than toxic sludge for the soul. Written with all the maturity and acumen of a sixth grader who hasn’t reached puberty yet, this tripe targets and is degrading to women; designed for those desperately looking for fantasy that will numb the pain of shattered, unfulfilled love. Ladies, you’re better than this.

Real love is unmerited, undeserving, unfailing, self-sacrificial and unreciprocated. Why? Because that’s how God loves us through Christ! It’s Valentines Day weekend. May I encourage you to stay home from the movies, nestlé up with a great book, the Bible, and hear about the substance of genuine love. Where you should you begin? Here are a few passages to discover a right, good, true enduring love: 1 Corinthians 13; Romans 5; John 10; 1 John 3-4; and Psalm 136.

Grace and peace to you!
Pastor Steve
