More and more of women who call themselves “Christian” are entering into secret sexual fantasies and reading EROTIC TRASH.
Some even imagine their involvement in bondage and control over them by others.
Even this kind of imagination is seeking to control others actions within our thoughts so they do what we want them to do.
But should this ever turn into an adventure in real life, it will be Satan who controls not only you but also the person you may want to be an active partner with you.
Dare to step out of the bounds of mental purity and even consenting role playing will kill any relationship you have with God and your spouse or intended spouse. Play the role of a victim and that entered into thought alone makes you a victim of Satan.
Play the role of bondage and sadomasochism and the anticipated sexual pleasures will burn in your soul until you have done it for real – and for real is done in the mind by the completion of an active thought that seeks self serving pleasure.
Just a little bit of roughness, spanking, humiliation and emotional upheaval can cause some intense sexual pleasures when played out in the mind and when masturbating, but reality is that Satan will drag you into an addiction you’d wish you never toyed with. Did you know that pain and pleasure register in the same part of our brain? Pleasure however can soon turn into pain and we even have the ability to consider certain physical and emotional pains pleasurable for brief periods of time.
What your thoughts enter into and do not reject as being a lie, will be what you have then accepted as being okay. The journey into degradation all starts with mental images and thoughts that seek to take the soul into its darkest history of what we may consider to be a perception of unmet needs.
If we have ever been abused, and have never experienced the full restoration of our ‘old despicable me’ in our soul by the blood of Christ and we have never agreed to experience the active mind of Christ we will believe that just because we have been abused in our past that others must continue to have control over us.
But how does God want us to see ourselves?
We must work at having a pure mind, and when evil thought seeds are presented to us – be it for our viewing consideration or our role-playing fantasies, we need to capture such thoughts and reject them for what they are – beliefs in lies and therefore disobedience and SIN.
God wants us to be SAINTS
not sinners who are always “Phew- saved by the skin of our teeth.” grace.

They broke the rules!
The subject matter…raunchy. The writing…real, blunt, and taboo, at least within the church. Dannah Gresh, a best-selling author and the founder of Pure Freedom, an organization defending abstinence, and Dr. Juli Slattery, a widely known clinical psychologist, author, speaker and broadcast media professional, boldly go where few have ventured, specifically within the Christian realm of women’s issues. In a rebuttal to the Fifty Shades of Grey series, Gresh and Slattery address erotica amongst churchgoing women – in your face and without apologies.
Erotica, always a man’s problem, right? Not any longer. Gresh and Slattery “pull back the shades” on the real problem – “spiritual women struggle with sexual issues” and shame. The lie: BDSM promises sexual fulfillment and revival. The truth: Women long for intimacy, passion, and adventure.
Struggling? You are not alone. Christian women secretly yearn for a strong, confident man to provide, protect, and lead them. This is where erotica comes in, luring you into an unreal reality that whisks you into a world “far, far away.” It promises a pulse racing adventure, yet abandons you in the end leaving you empty and devoid.
Whether single or married, Pulling Back the Shades is here to rescue your heart and bring you to the Living Water of true reality. Searching for your lost pulse? Gresh and Slattery have the answers that lead to authentic intimacy that is heart pumping and pulse racing, with a happy ending – no imagination needed.
