Fifty Shades of…Blah

blah_blahThis is my post on ‪#‎50shadesofgrey‬: Blah. Blah. Blah.

So goes the culture in which we live. Full of the blah, blah, blah drone of a zombie culture looking for the next thing that will make it feel human once more, but gravely missing the mark yet again. Sleepers, awake! You were not created to be the walking dead, reduced to searching endlessly to satiate your immediate desires. You are made in the image of the glorious Creator! Bring sexuality back from the dead. It is a life-giving part of being human, not a zombified float on the surface of the earth. Where is our desire for the depths? Where is our dignity and resolve? Have we forgotten what it means to be human? Yes….and so blah, blah, blah goes even our artistic endeavors: revelry in the mundane, death where there should be life. And yet, there is hope.

  1. Dear Mary Jo,

    As one who believes in the glory of biblical sexuality, after falling short too many times for too long. I agree. And this message needs to be explicated and preached well and heard in churches. Especially those who claim similar convictions. As the following article makes the problem very clear and a bit embarrassing: http://www.economist.com/news/united-states/21643170-strange-popularity-fifty-shades-grey-south-all-tied-up-bible-belt.

    Blessings, Stephen
