The Value of Watching Christian Movies and Videos
When it comes watching movies and videos either online or through cable television, you normally spend a lot of time on stuff that portray politics, crime, violence, and the like. 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.
What’s even more unfortunate is the fact that as a Christian, you’re actually contributing to this trend since you’re paying for cable TV or you spend so much time watching videos and movies online.
Change is Coming
If you look at yourself as a real Christian, you wouldn’t hesitate allotting some time in watching and learning from Christian videos instead. At this point, the most logical question you are to ask yourself is this: what am I getting with Christian videos?
What Christian Teachings in Videos Can Do
The beauty of Christ like media is that you not only learn more about your faith, you also are entertained in the process. Isn’t entertainment the main reason why you spend much of your time watching mainstream movies and videos?
Yes, it’s true that you get very entertained with movies and videos that showcase and even promote sexual-content and violence, as well as fiction in general; but the greatest value of Christian videos is that they tackle the truth and good morals. 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 the easiest efforts you can put in is by sharing via email or other means of any upcoming films or movies showcasing Christian teachings and the bible with your friends, coworkers, family, or neighbors who are fellow Christians. You even can start posting information via your social media account about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters.
