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. 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.
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?
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. 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. 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. 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.
