I so totally agree with our author here and am thrilled to know that someone out there will take a strong stand against this kind of degrading “entertainment.” Yes, we can take a stand but what about our young adult kids who have their own rights to choose what they watch, and go along with peer pressure just because it’s too difficult to go against the onslaught! We fill the theaters with eager eyes as degrading images and thinking fill young hearts and minds, and then we wonder what’s wrong with our young adults, our country and our world in general. We blame the government and it’s leadership but the real truth of the trouble lies in our hearts of sin as we allow this stuff to do it’s damage in our lives and in the lives of the younger generation. This Valentine’s Day it time to refresh our own hearts with God’s promise to His people:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
Dear Film Goers and Readers Everywhere,
February 13, 2015 will mark an important moment in American cinema, one which is a deplorable moment for our country and our world. In 1939, Gone with the Wind used the first swear word in a film, when Rhett Butler stuck it to Scarlett O’Hara, saying a well-deserved though sad “frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” While some might say that opened a door to the onslaught of immorality in films, I maintain that there’s a difference between that one word and the 554 times The Wolf of Wall Street f-bombed the world. But back to the point, there’s something that’s even worse happening on Valentine’s Day this year.
Opening in theaters that day is 50 Shades of Grey, an erotic, pornographic film that has a disturbing story line accompanied by overt sexual exploitation. And no. It’s not okay.
