    2 Corinthians 5:16
    New King James Version
    16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer,
    The false Jesus of the Chosen is a figment of the fleshly imagination of the Mormon producers. Dallas Jenkins has admitted that 95% is not biblical.

    Why would Jack Hibbs see nothing wrong with The Chosen and other Christians think it’s ok to watch this movie, and see nothing wrong with it ? How disappointing !😟

  3. How dare anyone put words into the mouth of God, or add to stories in the Bible? It’s so common but still so wicked. Revelation 22:18-19 and Deuteronomy 4:2 warn us not to add or take away from the word of God. Making up dialogue and events for Jesus and the apostles that aren’t in the Bible is a deadly game, no matter how common it is these days. Since we know their motives are ecumenical and commercial, it’s even worse. I never ever want to have an image of Jesus in my mind that’s not a description of him straight from the Bible(Rev. 1:12-18; Rev 19:11-6; Is. 53, etc.).
    I always considered Jesus a semi effeminate hippie (thanks to western media)til I read Revelation 1:12-18 as a 19 year old, and my perverse view of him was forever destroyed by the biblical portrait of him in glory and power: it matters. Thanks for fighting the hood fight.

  4. Lynn,
    Well, with that frame of mind, then Christians don’t need to be discerning about anything at all because most deception is partly accurate (which is how it deceives people). We can guarantee that The Chosen is not in the same camp as some of those older films. It’s in a league all its own, and it is presenting a false christ. Hopefully, you’ll read some of the documentation we’ve submitted in numerous articles and reports, which is not just giving opinion but is providing facts directly from the source. Lynn, it might be a good time to read up on some of the criticism about The Chosen (and we aren’t the only ones providing it) because while you yourself may not be watching it, almost for sure, some friends and family you know are, and if it is a dangerous deception, shouldn’t they be warned?

    I confess that I’ve not watched much of The Chosen, nor have I followed the threads of criticism about it. But I also confess to being a bit baffled. There have been movies/series related to (or attempting to connect to) Bible events since filmmaking began. But I don’t see a flood of outrage against all such (ex: The Ten Commandments, The Da Vinci Code, The Greatest Story Ever Told . . .). Don’t we all know perfectly well that any given depiction can be partly accurate and partly flawed—and that we need to verify against Scripture? Beyond that, online blasting/venting is so common these days, as is making assumptions about people’s motives. Just saying, let’s keep ourselves in check.

    One other note about this. There is ussually some apologist for Dallas Jenkins and The Chosen who will argue the artistic liberties are to be expected and its not possible to make a word for word depiction according to the Gospels as the Bible gives a bare minimum concerning the data of the Christ event. That the story must be fleshed out in the new medium (i.e. television and streaming) to make it entertaining. There are obvious problems with this.

    For starters, these “apologists” are the ones who are making the issue of an objection that the show isn’t word for word from the Bible. Neither myself or anyone else who criticised this show ever raised that objection at any time. The objection has always been getting the Christ event depicted correctly and the show makes it clear that they are not interested in depicting accurately what actually happened.

    The other problem is the need to entertain the audience in order to share the Gospels. I cannot think of a more disservice to the early authors of the Gospels, disciples, and martyrs by twisting the Christ event to entertain lazy christians who sit on couches to not be bothered to share the truth when these early Christians were tortured and brutally killed for accurately testifying on what actually happened regardless of the sensibilities of others or themselves. The Gospels were written to spread the truth, not designed for people’s entertainment.

    When the show’s writer is deriving 95% of his content from somewhere that is not from the Bible, when members of the LDS can’t tell the difference between their version of jesus and the show’s version that was constructed by an alledged evangelical, when the authority of entertaiment is more important than depicting the truth, I can then no longer give it the credit of calling it artistic licensing. It is a revision.

    Thank you for getting the word out about this “christian” entertainment. I’ve been speaking out about this show for over a year as I too noticed that there hasn’t been any criticism from our mainstream leaders in the Evangelical community. And what does pass as criticism from them is just lazy guidance to watch the show with your Bible open (see Todd Friel).

    Fortunately, it seems that people are starting to realize that the show fails to depict the Lord Jesus Christ of the Gospels. Although some are only doing so now that it is fashionable and safe to do so. Please feel free to use any of the information from my video about the show and Dallas Jenkins if it will help. Keep up the good work.

    people do not seem to remember God’s commands not to add or take away from what is written seriously. That which is in the bible is not to be embellished by one iota or tittle. This is the only book where a literary license is absolutely and blatantly a wicked sin. We are commanded to never go beyond what is written. In Jeremiah God expresses His intense wrath for anyone who puts words in His mouth. It is flippant; its disrespectful; its dishonoring; it’s the pot talking back to the potter. Its conjuring up a false Christ. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom and understanding. God is to be worshipped in Spirit and truth, not in campy irreverence.

    I understand stuff coming from the book of Mormon goes against God’s word, so I agree there. However, if you think Jesus was serious all the time or didn’t love on or connect with the children, then you don’t truly know Him or have sadly never felt what its like to be close to Jesus IMO! GOD is love, joy, peace, and always just. But in a generation that has been even more abused then those prior I believe that seeing a man who laughs an “blows strawberries” or whatever is important. If He didn’t then how could He honestly say that He felt everything we feel etc??? Kids needs to know that a might God is also their closest friend and savior.

    Colossians 2:8-9, as LH’s article begins, can be applied, without hesitation or fear, to both the abominable “The Chosen” and the Calvinist “Elect.” Both these manmade philosophies (Mormonism’s fairy tale and Calvinism’s evil) are bouncing around in darkness somewhere, hopping towards a Godless eternity. “Chosen” and “Elect” . . . too similar in meaning; the real author behind these movements has shown his dark hand. Accept it not.

    Ephesians 5:3-5

    But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
    4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
    5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
