Our first few months of YouTube has been challenging, enjoyable, frustrating, and encouraging, at the same time. We are trying to keep the mindset that this blog emphatically states in it's introduction, that what we have belongs to Christ. As General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson said, "Duty is ours, consequences are God's". We are called to speak the truth of God's word and to glorify Christ. Whether we get 5 views or 100,000, that is God's business.
We have struggled to keep our video time length below the 15-20 minute mark, on most videos. We realize that in this generation people do not want to sit through long videos. There is a good Christian brother that we follow on YouTube who posts hour long videos of himself talking about subjects, sometimes multiple times per week. While we would enjoy watching them all, we simply do not have time.
I was praying the other night about random things and the LORD brought to my mind a couple of different routes to go with the videos to try to make them as short as possible, while remaining hard-hitting and relevant. I received two ideas for a series we will probably go through in the coming weeks:
1) A series titled, "Woe unto you Christian Hypocrites". Sort of a knock-off of Jesus' Matthew 23 "Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, Hypocrites". The religious hypocrites of our day are in the Church. The primary topics we would cover would be regarding the issue of Kinism. They would follow a pattern as follows:
Christian Hypocrite Argument: "If you do not allow your daughter to marry a Negro, that means you hate Negroes".
Kinist Response: You hypocrite. Does that mean if I do not allow my daughter to marry a child, that I hate children?
And I plan to turn these into acting skits, if possible. Would be a fun project, perhaps.
2) Going through the FAQ list on Faith and Heritage website; each video would be answering one of the frequently asked questions regarding Kinists. We would add our own commentary, and perhaps make an acting skit out of these as well.
These are just off the top of the head ideas. Let me know what y'all think in the comments.
We still have two more videos to post this week and afterward, that are already recorded.
May the Lord Jesus Christ receive all the glory.
