RE: 50 Shades of Grey
It's taking quite a bit of flack from womens groups as it glamorises an abusive relationship (confirmed by two friends that have read it. Yes other people that aren't me smart arse. Erx i know you were thinking it!) and its plagiarised apparently?

Behold the power of the force!

Matthew 5:28 ESV
But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Luke 21:34 ESV
“But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap.

Romans 12:1-2 ESV
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

1 Corinthians 6:18 ESV
Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 ESV
For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

Ephesians 4:22-24 ESV
To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Philippians 2:5 ESV
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,

Philippians 4:8 ESV
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Colossians 3:1-2 ESV
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.


Just sayin. Drinking Beverage

My sister is not the intellectual type; she never reads. However, she has already devoured the first two books in the series. I like to call it "Fifty Shades of Penis" just to make her laugh.

Convictions are convictions.

If she's reading it for the entertainment and not "lusting" then she's not doing anything wrong.

It's a fine line, sure, but again... not everything is black and white.

There are many

Cool

Wait wait wait. Are we all still pretending KC is a theist? Just cause he hasn't come out and said it officially? One of the biggest contributors to the atheist cause in this forum and one of the first people to mock and discredit theist newcomers... is a theist?

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

I mock and discredit people who don't know what they believe and/or can't back up what they believe. Regardless of their beliefs. It just so happens it's mostly people from the Christian camp.

But, I find "mock and discredit" a little too harsh. I like to use the term "challenge".

I challenge other Christians to use the Bible to back their claims. Most can't because they are regurgitating their indoctrination.

For instance... that new bloke that said he believes in election but also believes in freewill. That's like saying you believe a square is a circle with four corners of a triangle.

RE: 50 Shades of Grey
This is fictional porn. And bad porn! I'm on chapter 8, I started reading yesterday. I stopped because it's SO dumb! If this were video porn, it's the low budge cheesy music kind. The charecters are boring. The only thing I know about the two main charecters is that she blushes all the time a trips a lot and he is a billionaire who runs his hands through his hair constantly. Then after 7 chapters of that they meet up in a fetish room with whips and buckles and start to tango in explicit detail.


This book is popular because sex sells. That's the entertainment value, the sex. Sure as hell is not the literary skill, because it's repititive and boring.
