A movie about sex and bondage has many up in arms, while others defend it as a wonderful love story that just happens to include sex and bondage. While I can certainly understand the outcry for Christian women, and men, to avoid this film, I think it may be a late response to an issue that has been going on so long many fail to see the problem. It is similar to the old frog in a pot of water where the temperature is slowly turned up until he boils, without even realizing what has happened. You see for years Hollyweird has been slowly pushing the limits on sensuality in the television and film industry. Remember Ricky and Lucy who, even though they were married, slept in separate beds? While those days may have portrayed life as a little more conservative than was reality, today we have gone way passed the calm medium. Average tv shows now paraded sex as a natural instinct that is neither sacred or confined in any way. Characters sleep with whoever they like as if they are a pack of animals that just need a sex fix, with no regard for the emotional and spiritual aspects of such acts. The train came off the proverbial track long ago and because of society being bombarded so often, like the frog, many do not see that there is anything wrong. We have been simmered in sin so long, we cannot discern that we are in trouble and if we do not wake up, like the frog, we will be boiled.
Isis works as the self-proclaimed instrument of allah, the god of Islam, but there is only one true God and it isn’t him. Some in our nation help this rebellion against the one true God with idiotic statements and suggestions. They are justified by our own president when he likens them to be no worse than the folks who fought in the Crusades. He failed to mention of course the Crusades were a direct response to an Islamic invasion. It seems, in the eyes of the president, Islam can do no wrong. Another government official at the State Department even suggested we could not stop the terrorists by killing them but by giving them jobs. This is yet another attempt to blame the horrific acts of ISIS on society, or more importantly on the United States, making us responsible for their evil deeds. On the other hand, many of us are outraged at the ISIS situation yet are fine with the daily slaughter of 3500 babies right here in the United States but that will have to wait.
Finally, homosexuality is consistently being paraded as normal, as Christians such as Judge Roy Moore are made to be villains, because they stand on Scripture. This may have been more prominent to me because the latest attack has happened in my beloved home state of Alabama. I have even witnessed Christians who will defend the parading homosexuals, telling other Christians to stop judging the person who lives the lifestyle. These Christians should know that God has already judged homosexuality and every other sin as evil. Simply pointing it out and begging the sinner to repent and trust the Savior is seen as hateful and judgmental, even by many people who claim to belong to Christ. One said it was not showing the love of Christ to tell homosexuals they were wrong. Letting anyone walk off into eternity thinking they are okay, when hell awaits them, is ultimate hatred.
All of this is rooted in the fact that man is a slave to and loves sin. The light has come into the world but the darkness rejected it because it loved it’s evil deeds. (John 3:19)
Repent and trust the Savior today!
Until All Hear!
