The Chosen + The Shift – Ingrid McCullough

I watched Season 1 of “The Chosen” and I’ve watched the first 4 episodes of Season 2. Although I did note some “liberties” taken, in general, I have enjoyed the series. However, the article below raises some serious discernment issues that I was not aware of. If you are a fan of “The Chosen”, I would recommend you seriously consider the valid concerns that are raised, by Ingrid McCullough at the link below:

  1. Thanks, Bruce. I was semi-interested in watching The Chosen eight months ago, but when I learned it was produced by Mormons, I didn’t care to see it. I fully believe it was a calculated effort (with support from the LDS hierarchy) to attract unwitting nominal “Christians” to Mormonism.

  2. I don’t watch TV much, so I’ve not seen this show. But I do recognize it. I had some videos come up on my YouTube that are interviews with the man who created The Chosen. If you’re interested I could go find them, then come back with the links. I imagine it’s the same guy, unless there’s more than one The Chosen show…

    • Thanks Yari, there are a good number of videos available with Dallas Jenkins interviews about “The Chosen” on You Tube, so I’m pretty sure those would be the ones that you saw. Most of them that had questionable comments have already been noted in the linked article I posted, but thank you for offering to do that! Blessings!

  3. This shows just how much we have to guard against false teachings infiltrating our minds and hearts. It’s especially harmful for new Christians who aren’t grounded in the Word and truth. I know when I was first saved I was approached by Jehovah’s Witnesses and by some ultra charismatic Christians from my neighbourhood. If it wasn’t for a Friendship Bible Coffee group I might have been taken in by the falsehoods they tried to make me believe. (e.g. if you truly have the Holy Spirit, you would speak in tongues; the Trinity is not real)

    • I agree Candice, it’s almost like every conceivable distortion of God’s truth has been let loose. Rampant is an understatement. Thank you for taking the time to comment, always appreciated. Blessings!

  4. Hey, Bruce! I watched the first season last year per the request of some friends. I struggled with the ecumenical nature of the show. I haven’t watched any of this second season. I didn’t realize all the LDS involvement so thank you for sharing this!

  5. When it first came out, I watched ten minutes of it and turned it off. I found it more beneficial to actually read the Word, rather than spent my time watching and having to go back to the Word later to check for accuracy. Way back when, a doctor once said, “Try not to eat food you see in expensive commercials. Most likely it’s bad for you.” Sometimes I wonder if that goes for things we consume in the church. Hmmm. Thanks for your diligence, brother.

  6. Thanks for this info, Bruce. After watching the first two episodes of season 1, I had already stopped. They troubled me because I felt they were not really true to Scripture. Now I know why I had such a strong feeling on it.

    • Hi Sheila, yes, considering this is supposed to be the “authentic” Jesus, they did take a few liberties. Thank you for taking the time to comment, sincerely appreciated. Blessings!
