Reasons Why You Should Start Watching Christian Movies and Videos
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 quite alarming that some videos and movies made for young children and teens even contain some kind of violence. It’s hard to fathom that because of modern beliefs plus the effect of technology, it seems like there no longer is that much interest and value given to 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?
The Value of Christian Teachings in Multimedia
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. 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.
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. If you hope that your entire family continues to live for the glory of God, you have to realize right about now how important it is for everyone to start filtering what you’re 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
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 these convenient ways is to send an email to your fellow Christian family, neighbors, coworkers, and friends, giving them a heads up on upcoming films or movies about Christ, the bible, or anything that showcases the Christian way. You also can use your social media profile and accounts to post information about Christian movies and sign up for movie newsletters online.
