Valuing the Importance of Watching Christian Movies and Videos
Whenever you think about the videos and movies you watch online or in cable TV, the usual things that come to mind when it comes to themes or concepts are politics, crime, fiction, or violence. In fact, it’s very disturbing to learn that some content in children’s videos and movies have some violence in them. The sad truth is because of the conveniences of technology plus the influence of Hollywood, it seems like there no longer is that much interest in biblical and Christian teachings.
The worst is that as a fellow Christian, you’re making some type of contribution to the promotion of violent and negative movies and videos since you’re most likely paying for cable TV and you even subscribe to video streaming services.
It’s Time for a Change
If you really consider yourself as a devout Christian, then you have to realize that spending some of your time usually spent in watching senseless content through videos and movies can now be allocated to watching Christian videos instead. Now the first and most obvious question you ought to ask is what are you getting out of Christian videos?
Value of Christian Teachings in Videos
The greatest thing about Christ like media is that you are not just learning and becoming close to your faith, you also will be entertained by what you have to learn along the way. Isn’t entertainment the main reason why you spend much of your time watching mainstream movies and videos?
But unlike those violent, sexually-themed, and fictitious videos and films, the value of watching Christian videos is that they speak of morals and the truth. Now if you want your entire family to continue living for the glory of God, then it’s high time you think about what you are watching. While it seems like there is no harm in constantly seeing defiling and immoral stuff via videos since we’re all adults and we know wrong from right, the same cannot be said when it comes to the young generation. Be reminded that if the young generation, including your kids, will repeatedly be exposed to videos that contain things they aren’t supposed to see, it means they likely will fall prey to its influence and forget the very essence of living the Christian way of life.
Your Effort is the Key
There are so many different ways for you to be able to promote the value of watching Christian videos and films other than buying DVDs from your nearest local Christian store. One of these convenient ways is to send an email to your fellow Christian family, neighbors, coworkers, and friends, giving them a heads up on upcoming films or movies about Christ, the bible, or anything that showcases the Christian way. You likewise can sign up for Christian movie newsletters or use your Facebook and other social media profiles to post information about Christian movies.
