It is encouraging to see that redemptive family movies with excellent content and quality are popular top-sellers in theaters, on DVD, and on streaming. The more the pubic shows consumer support for these kinds of movies, the more they will be made.
Good family and redemptive movies continue in theaters because of consumer support. Today individuals as consumers have more freedom to express Christian values in movies than in most public spaces. Christians must understand and use this power positively for the sake of their families, communities, and our world. Statistics have shown that good family and redemptive movies have demonstrated consumer support and staying power for many years and that is why they continue in production.
Where expressions of Christian values are limited in many public arenas they are less limited in movies, television, and streaming media where there is consumer support. Today we are seeing a social trend in which a new morality has been developing that values tolerance and inclusion. Ironically, in many areas of our church, school, and community lives, this new social trend is often not inclusive or tolerant when it comes to Christian values, except where there is consumer support. Therefore, we see more open expressions of Christian values in movies and other media in public spaces where there is consumer support.
Therefore, when consumers choose good redemptive movies in theaters, on DVD, and on streaming they are serving themselves, their families, and their world for good.
