The Value 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. 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. It’s hard to fathom that because of modern beliefs plus the effect of technology, it seems like there no longer is that much interest and value given to 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 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 you might be asking: what’s in it for me if I watch Christian videos?
Value of Christian Teachings in Videos
One of the nicest things about Christ like media is that aside from learning more about your faith, you also will allow yourself to be entertained in the process. There’s no denying that the foremost reason why you spend so much time watching mainstream movies and videos is because you want to be entertained.
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. If you hope that your entire family continues to live for the glory of God, you have to realize right about now how important it is for everyone to start filtering what you’re watching. Although at first you believe that seeing immoral and violent content in videos won’t do a lot of damage to you since you’re an adult who knows how to filter wrong from right, children and young individuals don’t have the same luxury. If you continue to let the young generation constantly get exposed to videos that they aren’t even supposed to see, then they eventually will forget the every essence of living a Christian life.
Put Some Effort in It
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 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 even can start posting information via your social media account about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters.
