Dallas Jenkins states Mormons, Christians “love the same Jesus”

Some years ago a pastor said that in the end times all false religions and spiritual movements would begin to trickle, and then would stream back together into one big river–in other words, the one world religion. Is this beginning to happen through The Chosen? Is Dallas Jenkins being used to bring about Christian acceptance of Mormonism?

According to Dallas Jenkins:

“So I can honestly say, it’s been one of the top three most fascinating and beautiful things about this project – it’s been my growing brother and sisterhood with people of the LDS community that I never would’ve known otherwise and I learned so much about your faith tradition and realizing, gosh, for all the stuff that maybe we don’t see eye to eye on…that all happened, that’s all based on stuff that happened after Jesus was here. The stories of Jesus we do agree on, and we love the same Jesus. That’s not something you often hear…sometimes it’s like, oh they believe in a different Jesus than we do. No, it’s the same, I mean I’ll sink or swim on that statement. I know that’s controversial and I don’t mind getting criticized at all for the show, and I don’t mind being called a blasphemer, I don’t like it when my friends are. I made it very clear that if I go down, I’m going down protecting my friends and my brothers and sisters and so I don’t deny we have a lot of theological differences but we love the same Jesus.” 

To watch Jenkins state all this start at 9:44 in this video.

Christians and Mormons do not love the same Christ at all! *

According to Don Veinot:

“The Mormons opted for a different sort of Jesus. In their version, He was born as a spirit being on a planet near the starbase Kolob (wherever that is!) to a god and one of this god’s many Mormon wives. The Mormon “Jesus” came to earth and was born into a human body. He then went on to earn godhood – like his father before him and his father before that … you get the idea. The good news (gospel) of the Mormons is we too can become gods and goddesses like all the gods and goddesses before us. The male gods each marry many goddess wives, keep them eternally pregnant, giving birth to a new spirit baby every nine months to populate their own planets. Just in case you missed it, you might note that this is a different Jesus and a different gospel from the Jesus and gospel we learn about in the Bible.” [1] 

For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it! (2 Corinthians 11:4)

When all is said and done, The Chosen is not family entertainment at all, but rather an assault on the biblical Christ.

*A reader was concerned several months ago because I had some positive things to say about the Mormon people. I totally understand her point, in that we should be more concerned about reaching them with the true gospel of Jesus Christ rather than constantly noting how kind and likeable they are as a people.

  1. Just like Roman Catholics do not worship the same Jesus as Christian’s-they literally believe they eat their Jesus through their wafer. 💔


    1. A lot to be concerned about with our Catholic friends, but at least the Catholics are correct about the hypostatic union and some other basics. I agree their theology is not biblical, but I am not certain that most Catholics understand what their Church teaches in terms of the Eucharist. Love these folks a lot.
