Has Angus T. Jones pulled a Charlie Sheen?

The 19-year-old Two and a Half Men star has spoken out against the CBS sitcom in a manner that's sure to ruffle some network feathers.

"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men," Jones says in a video posted on YouTube by TheForerunner777 (watch it below) in which the actor discusses his Christian faith. "I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."

"People say it's just entertainment," he continues. "Do some research on the effects of television in your brain and I promise you, you'll have a decision to make when it comes to ... what you watch on television. It's bad news."

Jones, who in 2008 was paid roughly $1.2 million a season, then references "the enemy" and how someone like him cannot appear on a TV show. (Jones has played Jake Harper on Men since 2003.)

"A lot of people don't like to think about how deceptive the enemy is," says Jones. "There's no playing around when it comes to eternity ... People will see us and be like, 'I can be a Christian and be on a show like Two and a Half Men.' You can't. You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't."

On the subject of his series, Jones concludes, "I'm not okay with what I'm learning [about] what the Bible says and being on that television show. You go all or nothing."

A rep for CBS tells PEOPLE they are "declining comment." Jones's mother also declined to comment.
