Christians who tell others not to watch Fifty Shades are being legalistic. It would be legalistic or judgmental to say only people who follow the rules are loved by God. But it’s not legalistic to say something is harmful or that those who revel in pornography grieve the Holy Spirit, hurt themselves and others, and need the Lord’s healing grace. While there might be occasion for cultural critics or individuals to read a book or see a movie like this to fight against it, the idea that these stories can be read or watched for entertainment by Christians without grieving the Lord is perhaps the greatest myth of all.
Do not see this movie. Don’t read this book. It is pornographic poison, attempting to change the culture’s view on sexuality and trying to make pornography commonplace, removing the rightfully existing stigma.
