Are you watching too many true crime videos on YouTube and want to find better channels to watch instead?

There are much better YouTube channels out there that focus on things that are lovely, true, and praiseworthy, so let’s start bingeing those instead! Here are 9 YouTube channels you can start watching instead of true crime!

1. Good Fight Ministries YouTube channel

Good Fight Ministries is a great channel to start watching in place of true crime.

It addresses lots of current cultural events and highlights how the music and entertainment industries may actually be operating ever so subtly in opposition to God’s word.

Remember the claims of worrywarts back in the ’60s and ’70s that if you played rock’n’roll records backward, a secret satanic message would play?

Is there any truth to that stuff?

Good Fight isn’t afraid to dive in and give an unbiased, well-documented look at such topics.

What about the demonic-looking Grammy awards shows, bloody performances, and witchcraft-mimicking shows put on by current popular music artists?

This YouTube channel takes a look at current events from a biblical perspective. It’s no less exciting than watching true crime videos, so it’s a great alternative for Christians (or anyone!) to watch.

3. Koinonia House YouTube channel

Koinonia simply means fellowship, so don’t freak out before you hear what it’s all about! Lol.

Oh, Koinonia House’s channel is just amazing! The teaching is so rich and deep, and all based on God’s word.

Chuck Missler delves into the study of Hebrew words found in the original scriptures, mining the implicit value and meaning that we would never know exists just by reading our English Bibles.

If you’re interested in having a deeper understanding of scripture, especially in Genesis, don’t miss this channel.

It’s truly another wonderful source for things mysterious—but without having to go the true-crime-content route—and all glory instead to the Lord!

DISCLAIMER: Just because a resource is on this list doesn’t mean I’m aware of all their beliefs, nor that I endorse or agree with them all. As always, be the best Berean you can be and test every teaching against God’s Word! 💛

4. L.A. Marzulli’s YouTube channel

How should I describe L.A. Marzulli’s YouTube channel? Hmm, let’s see…

In one word? Mind-blowing!

If you’ve ever been curious about Nephilim, giants, sasquatch, aliens, UFOs… look no further.

L.A. doesn’t shy away from any of these, and all from a biblical perspective!

He interviews lots of guests—many of whom have personal testimonies of encounters with giants or supposed aliens—doing so in a respectful manner, even if he might disagree on some points.

This is your go-to YouTube channel for all things “conspiracy” or “cryptid,” but L.A. vets everything scientifically, and he examines it all from a scriptural perspective.

If you’re looking to break your true crime addiction, this is the perfect place to find a thrill similar to that offered by true crime content.

5. Jan Markell’s YouTube channel

Jan Markell has had a radio show for many years which she brings to her YouTube channel in the form of a podcast.

She features tons of collaborations with Christian pastors and authors, having them on her show to discuss end-times events.

This channel is unique because, not only does Jan look at world events, she looks at biblical signs that point to the last days, including global economic concerns, political happenings, world governments, and especially the nation of Israel.

Jan is a Messianic Jew, so her perspective on the end times and how the Jewish nation of Israel is involved in all of it is so valuable.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about why Israel is God’s chosen people, how they figure into the last days, and whether or not God will keep His promises to them, this is the channel for you! Another stellar Christian alternative to true crime YouTube channels.

6. Billy Crone’s YouTube channel

Billy Crone’s channel goes in-depth on many current topics of concern, especially for Christians.

He examines whether or not we should be worried about certain so-called conspiracies… and every video is engrossing!

For just one example, take Freemasonry. Is it all a load of hogwash fabricated by conspiracy nuts, or is there something to all the speculation?

It was from Billy Crone’s channel that I first learned about the World Economic Forum and its extremely problematic leader.

If you’re unfamiliar, I suggest you search pastor Billy Crone’s YouTube channel for those videos because you won’t believe your eyes!

Billy pulls back the veil on a lot of what the news media doesn’t want us to pay attention to, and he studies God’s Word to be sure messages come from the perspective of scripture.

If you’ve wanted to research more about these types of topics, this YouTube channel will make the perfect addition to your list of alternatives to true crime channels!

7. Jenn EXpsychic YouTube channel

Ever wondered about the paranormal but not sure how that fits in with the Christian worldview, or if it’s something we should even consider?

Jenn EXpsychic is a wonderfully helpful resource for that exact question!

Jenn was a professional medium who left the New Age when she encountered Christ upon reading in God’s Word that divination is an abomination to the Lord.

While her past isn’t something she’s proud of, she seeks to glorify God by sharing her testimony of deliverance from occult mediumship and by warning others not to go down the path she did.

Jenn does a lot of videos on TikTok, so if that’s up your alley, check her out there.

However, you’ll find a lot of those same short-form videos on her YouTube channel, plus longer videos including her testimony and interviews with other former psychics.

Jenn also offers discernment videos that warn us of specific New Age dangers to avoid. A great replacement for true crime channels!

8. Expedition Bible YouTube channel

This is the newest channel to me on this list, and it’s so intriguing!

Expedition Bible seeks to bring the historic sites of the Bible to life by locating them via expedition!

From the Temple Mount to Sodom and Gomorrah to King David’s tomb, this biblical archaeologist seeks to uncover them all.

This channel is a super exciting place for Christians to turn to instead of turning back to true crime—it offers adventure at its finest!

Expedition Bible presents a rare opportunity to tag along on a journey to different locations of the Holy Land and beyond, bringing the scriptures we read to life by giving us visuals of the locations where biblical events took place.

How cool is that?!

9. Tipping Point YouTube channel with Jimmy Evans

This list of YouTube channels is meant to provide better places to go instead of true crime channels, but this one is also a great alternative if you struggle with immersing yourself in doom-and-gloom news 24/7.

Tipping Point with Jimmy Evans gives us global and political current events from an end-times perspective, all while helping us keep our eyes on Jesus, knowing He is our redemption and that we need not live in fear.

End times prophecies are coming to pass as we speak, and they will continue to do so at a greater and greater rate.

We should be aware of these things because it helps us know how to pray, and it helps us see that the time is short before Christ’s return.

And of course, with that realization, we need to see the urgency of sharing the life-saving gospel with our neighbors, friends, and family.

Frankly, we don’t have time to waste on watching true crime documentaries or listening to serial killer podcasts.

There is much more at stake all around us as people go about day to day without the Savior!
