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 quite alarming that some videos and movies made for young children and teens even contain some kind of violence. It’s probably Hollywood or the effect of modern technology that many people seem to no longer value the importance of 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.
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 Now the first and most obvious question you ought to ask is what are you getting out of Christian videos?
Value of Christian Teachings in Videos
The beauty of Christ like media is that you not only learn more about your faith, you also are 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.
While you’re getting entertained by fiction and violence in films, the value of Christian videos is that they talk about 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 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.
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. 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 also can use your social media profile and accounts to post information about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters online.
