Although you may not recognise the name Angus T. Jones, you'll certainly recognise him once you know that he plays Jake in hit American comedy Two and a Half Men. He's the half. Recently he spoke out in a video 'testimony' in favour of his faith and in criticism of the show that has been a part of his life for almost ten years and that pays him over $300,000 per episode.
In the videos, that can be seen on Youtube, he calls the show 'filth' and urges viewers to stop being viewers. He says that he doesn't want to be a part of it and even potentially goes as far as to align the show with Satan, referring to it as the 'enemy'. 'If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan," He said. "I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the bible says and being on that television show.'
In the video he also refers his parents concerns about him because apparently they think his involvement with the Forerunners church is something of a 'cult'. The Daily Mail transcribed some of the video: "Of course... some of my family were like 'he's going to a cult' trying to tell me to get out of there... But I didn't feel like I was being fooled, I could study it for myself. It's there in the bible and there's no evidence for the opposing views."
