Unless you have been living under a rock you have heard of the book 50 Shades of Grey. When I first heard about the book, all I was hearing was that it was so good and all these girls I knew were hooked on it. I love reading and love book suggestions and many times I will try out the trends. Well I really hadn’t heard anything about the content of the book, just that people loved it. So I did what I usually do and went to Amazon.com to read reviews. Boy was I surprised after what I read, just after reading the short synopsis I was horrified. Mainly because I couldn’t believe the types of women who were reading this and loving it. Many reviews praised it and its fabulous character “Mr. Grey” but there were also many comments stating it to be “porn”, “erotica” and many other filthy words. I still have not read this book, let alone put it in my hands. I have my many reasons for not doing so but in this link below this woman explains it very well and I stand with her!
A pastor at my church and a man that I truly admire said in a recent message that it makes him weep to think about how this book is specifically designed to target women in the way porn targets men. He was crying as he said this as he is expecting a daughter in less than a week and knows that sadly this is the way the world is going.
Stand strong! Don’t read this book and subject yourself to the thoughts it puts in your head and if you are dating or married think about how unfair that is to your spouse. I always try to ask myself “is this going to bring glory to God?” In this case I think it is the exact opposite.
