    Thank you for being watchmen on the wall and warning of deception.
    My sister, born-again and believes she has discernment, was raving about the wonderful production of the Chosen and began telling me of how Mary went off and fell into sin again, etc. I said, WHERE is that in the Bible? She got quiet. I said that is NOT in the Bible. and it is not known to be true, and it will deceive people and confuse them.
    However, she was so taken with the series that she has now decided to write a children’s book about “the ‘3’ Wise Men’s daughters”. I said, there were no wise men’s daughters in the Bible.
    Again, she was quiet. Obviously, the fact that the Chosen could take all kinds of fictitious liberties and mix them right into God’s truth had greatly influenced her thoughts.
    If this is what it can do to a raised in church believer, WHAT might it do to the new and non believers??

    Is it possible that Dallas Jenkins was chosen to be the face of Chosen to put a “happy evangelical face” on the series. An organization called “Rent an Evangelical” does exist.

    I, like many of my Christian friends, have really been enjoying The Chosen series , but in the last episode I think it was, when Jesus said, “I have come to start a revolution”, I was very bothered by that statement even though I could not and still cannot explain why. Sounds like dominionism to me. I believe the Bible says Jesus came to seek and save the lost. Also the world will grow worse and worse in last days.

  4. Hello Eddie,
    By reading just this one critique we wrote, perhaps you got the impression that we are more concerned about who paid for the production than what they produced. But actually that is not the case. We are definitely most concerned about the content and the influence that some of the producers and creators are having on the content. And as for this most recent article, it wasn’t we who made the false claims in the first place – it is The Chosen fellows when they came out with a recent media blitz saying that the series is “not produced by Mormons.” You see, rather than dealing honestly with the issue that some are concerned about, they are trying to cover things up and then vilify those who are challenging them.

    As for your second thought – who is glorified in the production – this is a legitimate question you have. What seems to be overlooked by so much of the church today is that the Bible warns about “false christs” and spiritual deception. And, also, we must remember that the apostle Paul warns about those who come preaching “another Jesus,” “another gospel,” and another spirit.” It is good for Christian believers to be Bereans and to be discerning. Of course, we are to do all things in a manner of love but we also must speak the truth.

    Lighthouse Trails is trying to put the obscured facts out there, and then each person must decide for him or herself what they believe. But surely, it is not wrong to question and challenge different movements that arise.

    Eddie, if you would like to better understand where we are coming from, we’d be happy to send you a couple booklets we publish (for free). If you would like them, please email us at editors@lighthousetrails.com.

  5. I find it interesting that you are more worried about the who paid for the production than what they produced.

    I wonder if Christians were as worried about Jews producing Ben Hur, King of Kings, etc., in the 50s and 60s as you are with this.

    I can only think of when the John, of all people, came to Jesus and said: “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told to stop, BECAUSE HE WAS NOT ONE OF US.” Mark 9:38

    And Jesus said to him: “Do not stop him”..Mark 9:39… “whoever is not against us is for us.” Mark9:40

    The real question should be, who is glorified in the production? Jesus, the Christian church, Jews or the Mormon church? If your focus is on anything but Jesus, YOU have the problem not the group producing “The Chosen.”

    The Chosen is deception in epic proportions! Thank you for exposing this false Jesus!
