On Valentine's Day, 2015 the movie version of E. L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey opened in theaters in the U.S. There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the book and now the movie. Christians are not the only ones who have objected to this "romantic" glamorization of an abusive relationship. There are even feminists and people in the BDSM life that have objected for various reasons.
What is it about this book and movie?
A Little History
The Fifty Shades Trilogy started its life as a "fan-fiction" story by Erika Leonard (pen name E. L. James). The "real" series it was based on was Stephanie Meyers' Twilight series and the original main characters in Fifty Shades were actually Bella and Edward the vampire. Considering the history and content of the Twilight books, this shouldn't be a big surprise. Abusive sexual relationships could be called a form of emotional vampirism.
Bad trees do bring forth bad fruit. It is an unavoidable law that God has set in motion.
Matthew 7:17-20 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
