One of the most viral news stories to unfold over the past few days is teen actor Angus T. Jones' public repudiation of "Two and a Half Men," the television show in which he stars. As TheBlaze reported, Jones shared his newfound Christian faith, called the show "filth" and urged viewers not to watch it in a YouTube video that has gone viral. Now, all eyes are turning to Christopher Hudson, the faith leader who appeared alongside the 19-year-old actor in the video.
Hudson runs The Forerunner Chronicles (FC), a video series that deals with current events and faith issues, alike. According to a description on the FC web site, the series is "dedicated to declaring the three fold message of Revelation 14:6-12." The description goes on to say that: "This message entails three heavenly proclamations symbolized as being declared by angelic agencies to the inhabitants of our world."

TheBlaze spoke with Hudson via telephone on Tuesday to gain more insight into his relationship with the young actor and to learn more about some of the controversial claims that have been laid against him. At the beginning of the exchange, the faith leader explained that the FC is a Christian media ministry that he has led, full-time, since 2006. The evangelist said that he travels throughout the world to speak about the Bible and his faith.
Contrary to what outlets like TMZ have reported, Hudson said that he is not a spiritual guide to Jones and that the two merely met through associates and decided to sit down for an interview last week (TMZ called Hudson a "homophobic, anti-Obama, doomsday theorist"). "I'm not Angus' spiritual adviser," he plainly stated. When asked to more properly describe his role in the 19-year-old actor's life, he said they are merely "brothers in Jesus Christ."
"We both believe that we're living in the last days of this earth's existence as we presently know it," he proclaimed.

TMZ highlighted some of the beliefs that are allegedly espoused by Hudson -- beliefs that were purportedly outlined in his FC video series:
-- Why he believes Jay-Z is a Freemason with ties to the devil
-- How Obama's pro-gay agenda has similarities to Hitler
-- How the NYC gas crisis can lead to cannibalism
TheBlaze asked Hudson about these claims. As for Jay-Z, the faith leader attempted to frame his views about entertainment and its dangers in a more general sense. He shared portions of the Bible, including Revelation 14:8 and Jeremiah 7, to note that he was merely showcasing the overarching idea that the devil uses entertainment to distract people.
"What I was presenting is that this system of deception has been constructed by the devil," he told TheBlaze. "He's putting out into our society, whether it be via Hollywood, via music -- he's putting out into our atmosphere things that are very destructive to humanity that basically cripples our ability to reflect the image of God."
When it came to discussing the comparison he allegedly made between Obama and Hitler, Hudson was clear that he was not directly tying the figures together.
"Obama's not Hitler. That's pretty evident on many different levels," he explained, going on to highlight his real fear for America. "One thing I really wanted to put forth in that video -- we need to be concerned. History notes that when established governments begin to make provisions for sin and takes under its umbrella unrighteousness it usually has historically been the precursor of the demise of that nation."
Here, he was referring to Obama's gay marriage stance. Hudson said that he is by no means homophobic and that he is not "saying that homosexual people need to be dealt with as less than any other human being." However, his concern is with Obama's support for gay marriage -- something that is directly oppositional to God's word, in his view.
He dismissed his comments about cannibalism as "colorful language." While he said he wouldn't call it a joke, per se, that his comment about a "baby looking like a chicken wing" was uttered to create a picture in peoples' minds and to show them the seriousness of the issue at hand.
"What I was stating in the video is the clear fact that the little Island of Manhattan -- there's only a seven day supply of food there," he said. "In any [tough] situation, those bridges get shut down and trucks don't have the ability to bring food into that city...people who are not given over to the guidance of the spirit of God -- they will do whatever it takes to survive."

As for Jones, Hudson said that he cannot comment on whether the actor will return to the set of "Two and a Half Men." As a newfound member of the Seventh Day Adventists -- the evangelist said that he's happy to see the young actor making a positive impact.
"Jesus Christ has the opportunity to be lifted up through a young man like Angus, who the eyes in many people has it all," Hudson said. "But Angus is telling people that to have it all is to have Jesus Christ."
