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. In fact, it’s very disturbing to learn that some content in children’s videos and movies have some violence in them. 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.
It’s Time for a Change
Now if you really intend to be a devout Christian, it wouldn’t hurt if you can spend some time watching and learning from Christian videos and movies instead of binge watching all day all your favorite TV shows and Hollywood films At this point, the most logical question you are to ask yourself is this: what am I getting with 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.
Putting in the Effort
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.
