It’s hard to stroll down Facebook lane or channel surf, without seeing something about the movie Magic Mike, or the book Fifty Shades Of Grey.
All of the “discussion” led me to take a few minutes, and share these thoughts…
First of all, let me make it clear that I’m not judging. Only God can do that, and He will.
Will this offend? Possibly, but please know that I’m an equal opportunity offender. 🙂 This book and movie may be geared toward the ladies, but this blog is written to ALL. The same words I’m sharing now, I’ve spoken to myself, the men of our church, and to previous generations for years.
In times like this, I try not to share my opinion, but HIS. So what does the Bible say?
I understand these views are not popular to some. I probably won’t have to start an extra Service at church this week, to seat the influx of new people. Truth however, sets people free. That is my heart. Even more, it’s the heart of God. In John Chapter 8, a woman that is bound in deep sexual sin, comes face to face with Jesus. (We can’t see HIM, and not be changed!) In the story, Jesus doesn’t condemn her. He loves and forgives her, but He does tell her to stop sinning.
I’m so thankful for HIS GRACE. I couldn’t live a day without it… If we’re a Christian, our response to His grace is found in Romans 6:1&2. It says, so what do we do? Keep on sinning so God can keep on forgiving? I should hope not!
I’m pretty sure that my blog won’t hurt the ticket sales of the movie release this weekend, and people will continue to stand in line for the book signing…
BUT, if it helps someone see THE TRUTH, it was worth my time.
