It didn’t take long for the message of love through abusive relationships to be taken to the next level. Read “Twilight Author in Love with Demons” for reference.

At a young age, the character, Christian Grey, witnessed traumatic experiences by witnessing abuse of his crack-addicted mother by her pimp. He later involves himself into a submissive adulterous relationship with one of his mother’s friends. His BDSM (Bondage, Discipline and Sadomasochism) continues by creating multiple emotionless contracts with “Submissive” women. The story feints love when Mr. Grey starts to break his own rules because he begins to have feelings for the innocent virgin, Ana. Readers cheer Ana as she is able to break through his disciplined desired into his heart.
Now, one of the “Top 100 Most Influential Women”, E.L. James composes her Twilight fan-fiction book and follows in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight footsteps of becoming a fantasy “Mommy Novelist”. It has evolved into a more “mature” Twilight for women. Read the description from the Author, herself.
“…Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. …Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.” – 50 Shades of Grey
…While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life – 50 Shades Darker
…Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality. – 50 Shades Freed
This trilogy dubbed by the world as “Mommy Porn” has accolades for saving marriages and serving as an economic stimulus. These physical advances are deemed healthy for home and economy. Many have also claimed that this bondage/submission lifestyle is based on trust and builds a strong relationship. These are the positive compliments the readers repeat.
Notice the author’s warning of the consequences in the above description. It “will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever”. Mr. Grey is portrayed to have been tortured by demons of control. This mimics the same storyline of the lusty Twilight. This theme is described as someone “good/innocent” that falls in love with evil. It is the demon’s function to control and torment. When Ana participates in the BDSM, she opens herself up to the emotional and physical abuse that the demons inflict upon her. Although Mr. Grey experiences a higher level of attack on his person, Ana soon finds out she has to suffer more than for which she had bargained.
Once a reader has become intrigued by even the forward, they have come into agreement with the author’s curse of obsession and possession. They agree to take the same journey the author had taken into a world of BDSM or rather Sexual and Emotional Abuse. The reader will soon share the same desires of the author, “Wishing they met someone like Mr. Grey”.
“93% of women surveyed want a spanking NOW.” – Huffington Post
The story lauds the “Love Overcomes All” theme that appeals to women. Knowing that Satan is the Father of Lies (John 8:44), it is not uncommon that he would devise a plan that would lead astray. This love that Fifty Shades of Grey portrays is not the Love that is described in the Song of Solomon. It is rather a lust that created a Soul-Tie with Ana as a similar story in Genesis 34:2-3.
And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel. Genesis 34:2-3
The word “love” (ahab in Hebrew) in this passage does not relate to the same that has been given by God. For a quick Hebrew lesson, in a concordance, you will notice there will be a Qal/Niphal, a Piel/Paul for this word. The “Qal” and “Niphal” are very simple and have many definitions. The “Piel” and “Paul” of the word is usually more descriptive and precise. For this word “ahab” (157) in the Strongs, the precise/intensive definition (Piel) is “friends, lovers or adulterers”. Reading the verse in context, Dinah and Shechem possibly could have been friendly at first, but agreement was lost once he had forcibly taken (3947 Strongs) and defiled her. The feelings he had we’re a result of fornication. This could not have possibly been the same love that Jesus displayed. This in fact was an ungodly Soul-Tie driven by lust. He could not contain his desires and had to have her as his wife. This is described in vs. 3 when Scechem’s soul “clave (1692 Strongs)” unto Dinah. The “Paul” of the word “clave” is to be joined together. Shechem’s soul “joined together” with Dinah.
“What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.” 1 Corinthians 6:16
“Clave” (1692) is the same word in Hebrew that is used in Genesis 2:24 and 1 Kings 11:1-2 when describing a husband and a wife becoming one flesh. This is a Soul-Tie.
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave (1692 Strongs) unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
“But king Solomon loved(157) many strange women … Solomon clave (1692) unto these in love (157).” 1 Kings 11:1-2
Not all Soul-Ties are evil, but this is not the case for Mr. Grey and Ana.
Is BDSM OK in Marriage?
BDSM is performed by one partner being the Top/Dom (Dominant) and the other the Bottom/Sub (Submissive). An interchangeable or switch relationship is often rejected by the BDSM community.
The 3rd Edition to this series, leads to a marriage that is based on an ungodly Soul-Tie of lust. These acts of BDSM are not honoring the body in marriage. In adverse, it is dishonoring. For example, a misconception of a wife’s submission, stance from men, is usually taken from Colossians 3:18. Some men believe a wife is to submit no matter the circumstance. Yet, this is not true. It must be “as it is fit in the Lord”.
“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord” Colossians 3:18
This verse is following commands to do all things with love. It is then restated for the husbands to love their wives.
“Husbands, love [your] wives, and be not bitter against them.” Colossians 3:19
This love is not insistent on it’s own way as BDSM describes. A husband should not have his will sexually against his wife’s will.
“(Charity) Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;” 1 Cor. 13:5
Even if a wife claims she is agreeable with BDSM, you cannot justify what is done to the flesh. It is to be nourished and cherished, not beaten or starved.
“So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:” Eph. 5:28-29
This is the same for a husband and wife. They both submit themselves unto each other.
The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 1 Cor. 7:4
This is very contrary to BDSM participants, because it is against their nature to switch roles. Oft times in some relationships, touching and sex is not allowed.
“Defraud ye not one the other, except [it be] with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.” 1 Cor. 7:5
Unless you are in agreement for fasting and prayer, a husband or wife should not deny each other.
As contracts and castings are made, the invasion of the BDSM fad will infect more men and women by hitting Hollywood. The target?
“People of all ages are reading it, from girls at university to women in their 90s.” – Belfast Telegraph
This is not particularly a children’s book, but it is directed towards those who have been primed by the abusive love story, Twilight.
This series based on BDSM follows the same thought process that Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight promotes. This thought process, love with demons. This is another attack of the enemy to infiltrate existing marriages with Marriage Breaking Spirits and wound young men and women who plan to marry.
