The Value of Watching Christian Movies and Videos
All people watch videos and movies and spend a lot of time doing it, either online, multimedia players, or cable TV; and for the most part, the theme is among the following: crime, fiction, action, politics, and violence. As a a matter of fact, even videos made for children and young ones are now portraying some kind of violence or negative content, too. 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
Now if you really intend to be a devout Christian, it wouldn’t hurt if you can spend some time watching and learning from Christian videos and movies instead of binge watching all day all your favorite TV shows and Hollywood films Now you might be asking: what’s in it for me if I watch Christian videos?
Value of Christian Teachings in Videos
The beauty of Christ like media is that you not only learn more about your faith, you also are entertained in the process. After all, entertainment is arguably the main reason why you spend so much time watching conventional or 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. If you intend that your kids and everyone in the family live for the glory of God, it’s important that you start thinking about what you’re watching right now. While you might be under the impression that seeing videos with violent and immoral content won’t do any harm to you, the same cannot be said for kids and children. 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
You have to realize that there are so many things you can contribute in spreading the value of watching Christian films and videos aside from buying DVDs from your favorite 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 also can use your social media profile and accounts to post information about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters online.
