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. 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 probably Hollywood or the effect of modern technology that many people seem to no longer value the importance of 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.
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?
The Value of Christian Teachings in Multimedia
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. While you might be under the impression that seeing videos with violent and immoral content won’t do any harm to you, the same cannot be said for kids and children. 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 likewise can sign up for Christian movie newsletters or use your Facebook and other social media profiles to post information about Christian movies.
