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
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 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
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. After all, entertainment is arguably the main reason why you spend so much time watching conventional or 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. 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. 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 the younger generation is constantly exposed to content they’re not supposed to have access to, then the whole idea of living a Christian life will largely be compromised.
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.
