    That was rly bad , so when ur kid was sick u never brought him to the doctor u always relied on god ?? And obviously healing comes from god how does it have so many like lol

  2. Rubes says:

    As a Christian shouldn’t you be looking forward to death so that you can complete this test (life) and get to heaven? Shouldn’t strictly obeying Yahweh be every Christian’s number one goal closely followed by the number two goal of death?

    Jesus is the way the truth and the life

  4. Arkascha says:

    "… we should … we should .. we should .. we should ..:"
    Unfortunately it turned out that followers of the christian doctrine are very often among those spreading nonsense about the actual situation, refusing to fulfill their responsibility in society but, as so often, loudly claim their egoistic "right" to only take care of themselves.
    Yes, you should, but you don't. Because it would mean that for once you'd have to live by those rules you always try to impose on everyone else.

    Everyone watching please share this video everywhere and get Social cross

  6. ra.a says:

    In Israel people are losing their vaccination status/"greenpass" for not having the booster shot.

  7. Semper Fi says:

    Going against your government is going against God's will. Romans 13 talks about love thy neighbor and to listen to your government, or your going against God's will. Timothy 5:23 says take some wine to help your stomach. Luke 10:34, Luke bound wounds for the injured. Physicians are a blessing.

  8. Diana B says:

    An extremely irresponsible statement. God has granted us the reason and intelligence to minimize illness and death among innocent citizens. Black death aside, one in eight people in the US has tested positive for Covid, and more than 700,000 have died. If that doesn't compel a pastor to encourage his flock to get vaccinated and follow simple health prevention guidelines, then we have a problem of compassion among Christian leaders.

    What a bunch of doo doo

  10. Jolnichek says:

    Talk about running one’s mouth without anything of value to say. He is not taking a Christian stance here. He is not talking about the spiritual war being waged against us as Christians. He says be calm and cool ….ok wise one. Didn’t need you to tell me that. Why don’t you stand up for the Lord and actually take a stance other than “be calm”.

  11. Gearhead2008Yeehaw says:

    And yet John got vaccinated

  12. Angela Lorna says:

    WHAT IS THIS HYPOCITICAL MUMBO JUMBO. THIS IS NO HELP TO ME. MUST WE TAKE THE JAB OR NOT? WHAT DID JESUS TELL U TO TELL US?

  13. Daniel August says:

    If you want to know how John really believes about how Christians should handle Covid. Just look at how he failed to admit he had it when he actually had it. Hypocrisy

  14. Senza Senso says:

    The multi-horned "beast" in Revelations wasn't an actual beast you know…now look at Covid under a microscope. The beast would give authority to the dragon….again not an actual dragon. Unable to buy/sell/work without the "mark" on your hand…in the days when Revelations was written it would "appear" that a person would be showing his/her hand, unable to identify the cellphone in their hand.

  15. First name Last name says:

    GOD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER LOVE AND A SOUND MIND!

  16. Jen A. says:

    So is he for the jab or not?

  17. PicturesofTravel says:

    “You should have your tax exempt status revoked for spreading misinformation from the pulpit and elsewhere. If you get Covid and are un vaccinated you are choosing to roll the dice. Why then go to the hospital but reach for Jesus? If he alone can protect you couldn’t he do it at your house? Think about love thy neighbor and a favorite adage God helps those who help themselves. People who spread misinformation have the blood on their hands of all those who died and should have to take their “church” money to support parentless children.“ Karen Forgood

  18. Heather C says:

    Thank you thank you thank you. I refuse to fear, my faith stands with God and if God decided it's my time to go then I shall go.

  19. Eddie deRoma says:

    1 Corinthians 15:55-58 King James Version (KJV) 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

  20. Darren Arthur says:

    Christianity is not the way .it is idolatry .turn to the Torah repent the torah is truth

  21. Johlibaptist says:

    We should love our neighbours and remember those who are suffering. In the world we shall have tribulation and thousands are dying daily in the USA. It is not over yet by a long way. Reality will bite, but the last enemy has been conquered.

  22. Blue Sky says:

    I think a big mistake the American church makes is to think like the world in which the laws of reason take precedence over the understanding and knowledge of spiritual laws when the Lord uses reason but is also above it. Many around the world have been clearly revealed in spiritual ways of the outcome of these vaccines, backed up by Scripture on why we should be even leery of any vaccines and medicines before taking them. And reason itself, when studying about the particulars of each vaccine, leads you to know it's wise not to take them. The consequences of taking these vaccines will be far more deadly than this virus in 3-5 years. The Lord has warned to the ones who have a ear to hear. The rest will have no choice but to watch and repent when the consequences come.

  23. David Devries says:

    My wife had her second heart attack after second Covid shot,,these shot s are not the answer,,

  24. Amber Dennis says:

    So am I doomed to hell since I am fully vaccinated

  25. Neel1567 says:

    That's a nice tie.

  26. Eli T says:

    In 2020 I think most of us prayed for our Doctors and Scientists . God answered in giving them the ability to develop a vaccine. If it shortens our life, then we live be with our Eternal Father faster. Thanks for the encouragement Pastor John. Always praying for you and your ministry.

  32. Sylvester Mondhlane says:

    Amen. Most definitely not to prove to anyone but as obedience to God's command

  33. Steve Sizemore says:

    Mac Arthur is prime evidence of evangelicalism's increasing ruin. Denial is not in the Bible.
