If you follow me on Facebook, especially, you know that I have been blowing up your feed with posts about the book Pulling Back the Shades by Dannah Gresh and Dr. Juli Slattery. This is in response to the movie, based on the book Fifty Shades of Grey, that is scheduled to come out in about a week.
Friends, the reason I am so passionate about combatting Fifty Shades of Grey with Pulling Back the Shades is because every woman I know deals with the effects of sexual sin – either her own sexual sin or the sin of people in her life. Many women across this world are real-life sex slaves. Yet we fictionalize sexual sin and pretend it’s not real. Stories of erotica, pornography, sexual bondage, and just plain, old-fashioned sex-out-of-wedlock, like Fifty Shades of Grey, are not make-believe. It’s time the Church talks about that fact.
Will you pray with me?
This week before the movie is released will you commit to pray with me every day that:
Today, February 6th: God’s Truth about sex will reveal itself across this country this next week in response to the book and movie Fifty Shades of Grey.
February 7th: Deliverance, healing, and restoration will come for people in bondage to sexual sin – past and present, their own and sin committed against them.
February 8th: Women who are sex-slaves and trafficked all over this world will be released and healed through the miraculous blood of Jesus.
February 9th: Our girls’, daughters’, nieces’, and granddaughters’ minds will be protected and the truth of Jesus will prevail.
February 10th: Marriages being destroyed by pornography and erotica will be restored.
February 11th: Your future husband or your daughter’s future husband (or your son’s future wife) is protected from the temptation of sexual sin.
February 12th: Your future marriage or your daughter or son’s future marriage is protected against the schemes of the enemy in regards to sexual sin.
February 13th, the release of the movie: Hearts will be led back to Jesus. That people will experience Jesus’ true love for them in a way that that find He is all they need.
And will you be bold?
It’s time we stop caring what other people think of us, especially on social media. Because friends, I’m here to tell you, one day we will answer the question, “Why didn’t you stand up for truth when you had the opportunity?”
That is very convicting!
