For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
Responding to article: The Chosen: “Get Used to Different”
Dear Lighthouse Trails Editors:
Thank you for your tireless research into the deceptions that are fast infiltrating the Church.
The subject of The Chosen is Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God and the LORD of all creation. But rather than using the Bible to create content, the producers created content based on what “the biggest spenders online” wanted to hear about Jesus and His disciples. Is there anything more ear tickling than this?
That the target audience is “the biggest spenders online”  tells me the goal is to make money.
The fact that Mr. Eves cares little whether YouTube connects the dots to “unicorn-poop-flavored [ice cream]” or to Jesus tells me that he has no reverence for the biblical Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. (I can almost hear the demons screeching with glee over that comparison by Mr. Eves.)
Again, thank you for all your hard work and for publicizing this behind-the-scenes info. So revealing. God Bless. ~Brenda
LTRP Note: For those who are skeptical about what we and this reader are saying, our recent article (see link above) has several quotes from The Chosen’s Executive Producer Derral Eves’ book, The YouTube Formula as does our article: “Latest Chosen Series Defense—’Not Produced by Mormons’—Misleading, Evasive, and Wrong.”

So You Still Think The Chosen Is an Accurate Reflection of the “Authentic” Jesus Christ? Really?

Thank You for this excellent work exposing The Chosen’s agenda and deception. Mormons always have an agenda, At first, it was an all out assault on the Christian church. When that didn’t work, they did a radical 180 and are now trying to pass themselves off as just another Christian denomination.
Never once have they renounced or repented of their evil doctrines. Same “bat channel” just a different mask.

We do have serious concerns that while a number of pastors and Christian leaders are speaking up about cultural issues (which we are not saying is wrong), almost none of them are speaking about the spiritual aspects of deception that have entered the church. THAT is the silence we are most concerned about. We will explain in more detail soon.

Eric Metaxas has come out recently comparing the silence of the Churches in Germany before and during the holocaust, with today’s American churches and the attacks on biblical morality.
Churches dont even have the spine to confront, The Chosen.
They are too ashamed of the Gospel to expose any heretical books or movements.
Their are a thousand ways to deny Christ. Cowardly silence is the worst. It’s like Peter denying Christ, with a megaphone.

Interestingly, Calvary Chapel pastor Greg Laurie chose Jonathan Roumie (The Chosen’s “Jesus”) to star in the upcoming 2023 full feature movie about the Jesus movement from the 70s. Roumie will be playing Lonnie Frisbee: https://www.movieguide.org/news-articles/jonathan-roumie-kelsey-grammer-to-star-in-greg-lauries-jesus-revolution.html.
Thank you for truth about The Chosen. Very sad to see thousands adoring it.
There is video of Dallas Jenkins firmly stating that Christians and Mormons worship the same Jesus.
Season 2 Episode 5 was the clincher for me. Jesus PRACTICING His Sermon on the Mount “speech.” Jesus telling John the Baptist NOT to confront Herod on his sin (“they all do it”) and laughing about John’s “brood of vipers” words to the Pharisees.
An added danger is Jonathan Roumie (“Jesus”) directing his followers into Catholicism and The Hallows app download.
