The terrorist attack in Nice was unfathomable – the carnage too graphic to show on television. One minute the crowds are enjoying fireworks on the Riviera; then an Islamic terrorist mows down well over 200 people, babies and children included. Over 84 dead and 202 injured – some severely.
My heart breaks for the people of France. But as a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, I am fully aware that the actions of a nation has dire consequences. Most don’t believe in God. We know that our God not only “exists” but He does not wink at sin. He answers many times by taking away His protection. We saw this during this horrific terrorist attack. Just what was happening in Nice as the terror unfolded?
Fifty Shades of Gray Sequel
The sequel of the pornographic film was being filmed in Nice at the very time of the attack. This is certainly no coincidence.
The sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey” has been filming in Nice, France where on Thursday night a truck armed with explosives killed 80 people after plowing through a crowded Bastille Day celebration.
According to sources, the “Fifty Shades Darker” cast and crew are safe and accounted for. The film, starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, had been shooting on the French Riviera the past few weeks.
It’s unknown if production will be suspended this weekend. Sources say the erotic drama shot scenes Thursday in the region but wrapped production before the attack.
A rep for Universal Pictures could not be reached for comment.
Officials are describing Thursday’s rampage as an act of terrorism. It marks France’s deadliest attack since ISIS hit Paris last year.
Earlier in the evening, producer Dana Brunetti posted a photo on Instagram with James and producer Michael De Luca in the nearby city of Monte Carlo.
“Back safe in my hotel room,” Brunetti tweeted after the carnage. “Thanks for everyone’s concern and messages.”
“Fifty Shades Darker” actress Eloise Mumford later posted an image of the French flag with a broken heart icon. – source

The attack in Paris in 2015
During the attack in Paris which left 137 people dead, I wrote this article:
We will continue to see horrific terrorist acts. I believe that this world is now experiencing the end of the end times. The sad thing is that most people have no idea that God is real, and that He loves them and wants them to repent and turn to Him. In their unbelief, these people are bound for hell. I do pray that many of the deceased knew our God, and I also pray that this tragedy will cause many to turn to Him.
We can only pray for countries and for individuals. I will write on these events as long as I can.
I have a feeling that the powers that be will eventually shut me down.
But, until then……..
