At the Risk of Offending…

There are so many things I wish to talk about but I fear offending.
There are many things bothering me. Does anyone want to hear complaints?

However, one thing I can no longer keep my mouth shut about is the of reading 50 Shades of Gray by Christian women. It has been touted as “housewife porn.” From what I know of it, that is exactly what it is; porn.

God tells us in His word “…among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.” (Ephesians 5:3)

Again, “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.” (Colossians 3:5)

This doesn’t leave any room for interpretation other than this book is pornography and not to be consumed by the believer. Wake up, sisters! Do not be a part of this world. We are meant for something greater. This is spiritual warfare and we must not relent in this battle. Speak up!

That’s all I have to say on that subject.

  1. Have seen reviews ofthe book here and there and was wondering what it was about. Thanks for this G. So I know, not to read it. Porn comes in many diff forms, sadly, it’s finding its way to many of our children and teens through books. blessings G, for your faith and conviction and daringto speak out. 🙂

  2. I haven’t heard of that book; however, I am sure I agree with you! I even believe it’s wrong to read “romance novels”… honestly, they are so ‘full of it’ and girls/women read this, wish they had it, look over at their own husbands and sigh. There are certainly things we can spend our time putting into our heads that are uplifting, true, and just…. don’t you think?

    • Absolutely. I used to read romance novels and became addicted. A number of years ago I promised God I would not read another one and have kept that promise.
