Valuing the Importance 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 quite alarming that some videos and movies made for young children and teens even contain some kind of violence. 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.
And what’s even more disturbing is that as a Christian yourself, you can’t deny your contribution to Hollywood or any media franchise that show violence and other bad stuff in movies and videos since you’re most likely subscribed to cable, video streaming, and the like.
It’s Time for a Change
If you look at yourself as a real Christian, you wouldn’t hesitate allotting some time in watching and learning from Christian videos instead. Now the first and most obvious question you ought to ask is what are you getting out of Christian videos?
What Christian Teachings in Videos Can Do
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. 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. 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. 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
Aside from buying DVDs from your local Christian store, there are so many other ways that you can help in spreading the value of watching Christian videos. For example, you can send emails to your fellow Christian friends, co-workers, neighbors, and family about interesting films that tell the story of Christ and His teachings in the bible, be it previously released movies or upcoming flicks. You also can use your social media profile and accounts to post information about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters online.
