In Support of Angus Jones, a Seventh-day Adventist
« on: November 28, 2012, 08:45:53 PM »
When we make a decision to follow Jesus, it brings forth a new creature and a radical transformation of nature. It is true that we retain our old fallen nature, but there is a new power when we allow Jesus to take possession of our hearts. We become partakers of His divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world (2 Peter 1:4). When most of us are converted we are often allowed time to adjust to our new life in Christ. This is not the case with Angus. He is in the fire and if the world hated Jesus, then it will hate all who follow in His path.

By warning others to not partake of the evil in this world, Angus has opened himself up to the wrath of Satan. We want to support Angus in that decision and encourage him to continue as a witness of the love of God for us while we were yet sinners. He is in a position to help many who have no peace and are quickly losing their hold on life as they sink lower and lower in the confusion and evil in the world today. Angus made a brave decision to testify publicly of his love for God and to be single minded to the glory of God.

All must respect the sacrifice that he has made in so doing, even if they disagree with him. It was an unselfish act and God will reward him abundantly as He does all who make a full surrender and live for His glory.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Angus understood when he was converted that it was an all or nothing commitment. Many who believe they are converted never give it all and they will be lost unless they make a full surrender to Jesus and become partakers of God's divine nature, new creatures in Christ Jesus.

Today, we read much from the world about how Angus has experienced a "meltdown". Many including his family and friends are concerned.  Yet, they ought to be pleased that a young man in today's world has become more concerned about his future than living for the moment. They must not understand that Angus was using drugs and now he is not. They must not understand that he is happy and before he was not. It appears to me that many are being quite selfish in how they look at the situation.

Here is a typical worldly response to the conversion of Angus Jones.  From his former co-actor, Charlie Sheen being reported by HuffPost TV. "'With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed.' Sheen was referencing the Heaven's Gate cult, an extraterrestrial-centric religion, whose 39 members committed mass suicide in 1997 in hopes of reaching a UFO following the comet Hale-Bopp." source

Sheen has no understanding of religious things, as his response reveals. His reaction as told to TMZ "I dare anyone to spend ten years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre's hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami" ought to please him that Angus recognized exactly what Sheen believes, that it is no place for a young child or for an adult. So, why call it a meltdown, Charlie? Unlike Sheen's experience when leaving the show Two and a Half Men where Sheen did have serious problems, Angus has gone in the opposite direction. He is dedicating his life to helping others, not hurting them.

And another from the same article: "The main concern is that he is going to give away all his money to the church. It's like he's been brainwashed. Everyone is shocked and very concerned." We all know better as we listen to Angus explain the Bible. He is thinking for himself and is being taught to look to the Bible, not to man, be it producer, mother, or preacher. That is the teaching in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
