Young Star Shows His True Colors
Angus T. Jones, who plays the teen character Jake Harper on the CBS sitcom, makes quite a statement in a YouTube video as part of a religious testimony given to The Forerunner Chronicle; a website dedicated to “declaring the three fold message of Revelation 14:6-12.”
After sharing his quest to find a church that was right for him lead him to the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Jones added, “If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men. I’m on Two and a Half Men. I don’t want to be on it. … Please stop filling your head with filth…Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television and especially with what you watch on the television. It’s bad news.” The young television star also shared that his new found faith has completely changed his life and that he only wants to do God’s work and not cause any harm to the world.
Although some watching this video might be turned off by its preachy tone, the boldness of the young actor to speak his truth is commendable.
In our culture today, the domination of being politically correct, as to not offend anyone, has caused many to become silent.
Removing prejudice, judgment, and condemnation of others due to their skin color, political views, or religious beliefs frees us to be able find peace with one another. However, when it crosses the line to becoming afraid to say anything at all then it creates more separation among us.
Now more then ever, the world is in need of courageous people who are willing to come forth with their positive messages of inspiration.
Although he is only nineteen and on his own personal spiritual journey, Jones’ comments about a television show have created an opportunity for people to think about what messages they are allowing into their consciousness.
In order to stay positive, make good decisions, and come from a place of love in both our lives and relationships, we must stay aware of what we choose to focus our attention and thoughts on.
It is far too easy to fall prey to fearful thinking that can lead us down a road of anxiety, depression, and an unhappy existence. However, when we intentionally decide to put good into our minds good will come out!
