Reasons Why You Should Start Watching Christian Movies and Videos
When it comes watching movies and videos either online or through cable television, you normally spend a lot of time on stuff that portray politics, crime, violence, and the like. 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.
The worst is that as a fellow Christian, you’re making some type of contribution to the promotion of violent and negative movies and videos since you’re most likely paying for cable TV and you even subscribe to video streaming services.
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. Now you might be asking: what’s in it for me if I watch 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. 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. Although at first you believe that seeing immoral and violent content in videos won’t do a lot of damage to you since you’re an adult who knows how to filter wrong from right, children and young individuals don’t have the same luxury. 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.
