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 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.
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
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 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
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. 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. 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. 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
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 likewise can sign up for Christian movie newsletters or use your Facebook and other social media profiles to post information about Christian movies.
