3 Reasons You Must Not See ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey tells the story of Ana, a college student, and Christian, a successful entrepreneur. The two engage in a sexual relationship that becomes increasingly abusive. 


Please, do not see this movie. And do all you can to encourage others not to see it. Why is it so dangerous? Consider three facts.

One: the movie is pornographic in the extreme. It is a “terrible” movie, according to The New York Times, with bad writing and awkward dialogue (Us Weekly lists “50 Problems With the Raunchy Flick”). But far worse, it is a porn movie disguised as a romance. According to The Atlantic, the film shows at least 20 full minutes of sex.

Two: the plague of pornography is an epidemic in our culture, and this movie will make things far worse. GQ, a magazine not known for biblical morality, recently cited reasons readers should quit watching pornography immediately. Among them:

  • Porn damages the brain. Scientists at Cambridge University recently determined that people addicted to pornography show similar brain activity to alcoholics or drug addicts.
  • Porn motivates people to seek new sexual partners. This is an example of the Coolidge Effect, or novelty-seeking behavior.
  • Porn use escalates. In one study, 64 percent of porn viewers reported that their tastes in porn had become more extreme or deviant.
  • Pornography saps energy. In the same study, 67 percent reported an increase in energy levels and productivity when they stopped viewing porn

Fifty Shades of Grey will spread the plague of porn to even more people. Don’t be among them.

Three: the movie glamorizes and normalizes sexual abuse. One study concluded that nearly every interaction between Ana and Christian was emotionally abusive, including stalking, intimidation, and isolation. It also noted pervasive sexual violence, and that Ana exhibits classic signs of an abused woman. A second study showed a correlation between those who read the novel and developing an eating disorder, having abusive romantic partners, engaging in binge drinking, and having five or more sexual partners before the age of 24.

The executive director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation calls the movie “a sensationalized lie, telling women that they can, and should, fix violent and controlling men by being obedient and devoted, and that, somehow, this is romantic. It is no surprise that Hollywood is betting millions of dollars that now is the right time to offer sexual abuse and sexual violence against women as mainstream entertainment.”

God tells us to “flee from sexual immorality” (1 Corinthians 6:18). The psalmist prayed, “Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways” (Psalm 119:37). Job said, “I have made a covenant with my eyes” to refuse sexual sin (Job 31:1).

Let’s make the same covenant today. Please, do not see this movie.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie Is A Sign of The END Of The WORLD – Pastor Says

A noted bishop from Dallas, Texas said that the film Fifty Shades of Grey could be a sign that the end of the world is near.


According to Pastor Robert Jeffries of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Fifty Shades of Grey constitutes one more factor in the string of moral and cultural signs that herald the coming of the apocalypse as foretold in the Bible.

“I just think this movie may represent a new low in popular entertainment,” Pastor Jeffries told Alan Colmes in his radio show last week.

“I’m just saying the Bible prophesied that in the End Times, there will be a lack of moral restraint, and I think we’re seeing that manifested in so many different ways,” the pastor explained.

Jeffries is one more voice to the many others that are criticizing the controversial film, which is based on EL James’ trilogy of novels. Criticism is particularly focused on the abusive relationships between the two characters, Christian Grey and Anastacia Steele.

The film has already been banned in Kenya and Malaysia because of its “pornographic” content, while various groups in the United States have called for its boycott on its release.
