Reasons Why You Should Start 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. 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.
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 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?
Value of Christian Teachings in Videos
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. After all, entertainment is arguably the main reason why you spend so much time watching conventional or mainstream movies and videos.
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. 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. 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 even can start posting information via your social media account about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters.
