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 very disturbing to learn that some content in children’s videos and movies have some violence in them. 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.
And what’s even more disturbing is that as a Christian yourself, you can’t deny your contribution to Hollywood or any media franchise that show violence and other bad stuff in movies and videos since you’re most likely subscribed to cable, video streaming, and the like.
Time for a Change
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?
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. 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. 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 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. 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 the easiest efforts you can put in is by sharing via email or other means of any upcoming films or movies showcasing Christian teachings and the bible with your friends, coworkers, family, or neighbors who are fellow Christians. You likewise can sign up for Christian movie newsletters or use your Facebook and other social media profiles to post information about Christian movies.
