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.
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. At this point, the most logical question you are to ask yourself is this: what am I getting with 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. 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.
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
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. 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.
