Valuing the Importance 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. 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.
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
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?
The Value of Christian Teachings in Multimedia
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. Isn’t entertainment the main reason why you spend much of your time watching 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. 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.
Putting in the Effort
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. 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 likewise can sign up for Christian movie newsletters or use your Facebook and other social media profiles to post information about Christian movies.
