Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ (YouTube)
Lee Grady is right. Fifty Shades of Grey—erotic mommy porn that is making its way from the printed page to the big screen this Valentine’s Day—is perverted.
“The book was accurately dubbed ‘mommy porn’ because it is sexually graphic and full of crude language, and also because Christian expects his girlfriends to totally submit to his sexual tastes—which involve whips, chains, handcuffs and gray neckties,” Grady writes. “This is not just mainstream porn. This is mainstream bondage porn.”
Grady is spot on with his three-pronged assessment. Fifty Shades of Grey encourages sexual deviance, glorifies violence against women and totally perverts the meaning of love. The movie release is somewhat ironic, given Hollywood’s focus on—and profitability—producing faith-based films like Noah, God’s Not Dead and Heaven is For Real in recent years.
Of course, Hollywood has long served many gods—just like Queen Jezebel in the Old Testament (see 1 Kin. [16:31]). The spirit that influenced the wicked queen—and the spirit driving much of the filth emerging from Hollywood—is alive and well today. The problem is that most don’t recognize this sinister spirit for what it is. The spirit of Jezebel is not merely a spirit of control and manipulation. It’s a spirit of seduction that woos people into sexual immorality and idolatry (Rev. [2:20]). Hollywood exalts the spirit of Jezebel and Fifty Shades of Grey glorifies its perversion.
Jezebel Makes Its Home in Hollywood
The Old Testament Queen Jezebel was a Phoenician princess who married Ahab, king of Israel. Her father was Ethbaal, king and high priest of the Sidonians. Queen Jezebel introduced Baal worship into Israel and encouraged Ahab to build Asherah poles (see 1 Kin. [16:33]).
