If the effects of gravity are relative to an objects stress-energy-momentum tensor, is the equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Fg = Gm1m2/r^2

fundamentally flawed since it is based off the mass of the two objects? Ignoring the "gravity isn't a force" (I understand that it is what is observed due to curves in spacetime) argument if at all possible. Simply put, does this formula accurately predict how "normal" objects will be effected by gravity or is it just wrong?
