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. 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.
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. 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. 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.
Your Effort is the Key
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 also can use your social media profile and accounts to post information about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters online.
