  1. As a Christian Pastor, I wanted to see for myself what a few of my congregation were raving about. In the three episodes I watched, there were inaccuracies to God’s Word, blatant inaccuracies that led the viewer that to believe that Jesus had committed sin, and disrespected His mother and Earthly father. My critique of the program generated a discussion among those that had been watching the program regularly. But there was one hold-out that said he was going to continue watching the program. The others have stopped watching. So the one still watching the program is being prayed for to have his eyes opened.

    I agree with Anna King. I couldn’t keep going with the series after the preparation of the sermon on the mount scene. Too many things concerned me, even though it was beautifully filmed with strong characters that people connected with. The compromises were a step too far for me.

    So glad I found this website that agrees with what my husband and I felt when trying to watch this series that everyone seemed so excited about! We just could not watch it, the dialogues not aligning with the Scriptures and my spirit felt grieved in spite that everyone around us seemed to enjoy watching “The Chosen”. So glad “His Truth is marching on…” but we need to continue to pray for the many innocent souls…thanks for your courage!

    As the Newsweek article linked above refers to the involvement of Brad Pelo, it may seem helpful to re-look at parts of his résumé from an archived link:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20220807161452/https://byuicomm.org/latterdayprofiles/brad-pelo/

    “Brad Pelo is an entrepreneur and movie producer. His story was first chronicled in the New York Times as a “Teen Entrepreneur” long before it was acceptable to drop out of school and start a business at a young age.

    “His first business, started at age fifteen, brought real estate listings to the computer age. After his LDS mission to Michigan he attended BYU and joined four fellow students to cofound Folio, the creator of one of the earliest search engines and predecessor to companies like Google. Folio was successful enough to garner the attention of the market incumbent in search, Lexis-Nexis, which ended up buying the company and asking Brad to lead its effort to bring their own services to the Internet.

    “In 1997 Brad returned to Utah where he negotiated the purchase of the book and magazine company, Ancestry Publishing. With the new acquisition in hand Brad and fellow cofounders created Ancestry.com, today’s leader in genealogical research. The following year Brad negotiated the purchase of the LDS publishing house Bookcraft and lead the effort to bring LDS culture, history and literature to the Internet.”

    Having heard tell about LDS culture, history, and literature and part of the purposes of genealogies for them as reflected in the ancestry site, it seems interesting to read even more details about possibly very purposeful work:

    “In 1988, Allen had worked at Folio Corporation, founded by his brother Curt and his brother-in-law Brad Pelo. The service was initially to help members of the church to research their ancestors to support the church’s practice of conducting baptisms for dead relatives/ancesters into the church.”

    You’re right.

    “Listening to God”… is a broad brush stroke… until the finished painting scene emerges.

    Playing Russian roulette with the conscience is not “a joke”.

    What I’m writing on a related subject, but I think applies…
    “Contorting the image of God created and described through His Word… the “frozen chosen” divorcing the God-given conscience… are exclamation points towards that direction. “

    I stopped watching TC after Jesus and Matthew were out alone. Matthew was critiquing what would become the sermon on the mount. Plausible? No, Jesus is God and the Word! The Son of God, the Messiah, would not need any “feedback” from his disciple. Not in the Bible & just fiction!
