“Choose you, this day, who you will follow.”

That’s one of the ominous demands Angus T. Jones, longtime co-star of Two and a Half Men asks viewers in a nearly 15-minute video, wherein he all but announces he’s done with the hugely popular show, due, in part, to his religious beliefs.

“It’s bad news,” he says about the show on which he’s played Jake Harper since 2003. “I don’t know if it means any more coming from me, but you might not have heard it otherwise. So, just watch out, because a lot of people don’t like to think about how deceptive the enemy is.” We can only assume the “enemy” is “Satan.”

“He’s been doing this for a lot longer than any of us have been around,” the 19-year-old actor continues. “So, we can’t play around. There’s no playing around when it comes to eternity.”

The video, shot for religious group Forerunner Chronicles who boasts the motto “The Truth is the Truth,” also features Jones directly telling people to stop watching the CBS show that has brought him fame and gobs of money. He even says he doesn’t want to be on the show anymore.

“If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men,” he says. “I’m on Two and a Half Men, and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it, and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment. 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.”

It’s possible the video represents some sort of prank, but it’s highly unlikely, given this religious group’s standing as an advocacy organization. You can watch the entire video below.

    He says things like that because it’s about more than just a TV show. It’s about an eternal truth and he cares more about you hearing it than he does about his earthly wellbeing…he sacrificed that for you to hear the truth since you may not hear it elsewhere. Can’t believe you found this Angus in the environment you are in. Prayer really does make a difference! Praise God!

    Remember not to pass judgement over him for his beliefs. And the message in the video was not only about the filth that tv has on it but the message of a young man who on his own terms came to the Word and the testiomy he has in that. God Bless him and all who pass any judgement on him.
