    Um…wow! Just…..unbelievable.

  2. Bob Sweat says:

    My question is, how can you continue to teach book by book, verse by verse, and still believe these things?

  3. Michael says:


    Because they didn’t learn anything in the other books, chapters, and verses…

  4. Wendi says:

    Well, Jack Hibbs did say that he believes that one’s response to COVID is an indicator on who is a true Christian or not, sooo (insert eye roll )

  5. Dave Rolph says:

    I love when kooks excommunicate themselves.

  6. Michael says:


    It does solve the problem efficiently… 🙂

  7. Michael says:


    Another brilliant expositor…

    If only more of them would follow that advice. You would have a much smaller movement, but perhaps one that might have a greater impact.

  9. Linn says:

    I almost choked on my soda. I can’t find “zombies” in my Strong’s Concordance.

  10. Captain Kevin says:

    Calling this guy a prophecy wonk is an insult to prophecy wonks the world over. Well, many of them anyway.

  11. Captain Kevin says:

    Linn, you must have the abridged version. It’s a tool of satan to keep folks from detecting the reality of the zombie apocalypse.

  12. JD says:

    The “zombie apocalypse” is in the zombie apocalypse bible.
    -JD (no relation)

  13. Reuben says:

    Wait, WHAT?!?

  14. Janet Linn, BrideofChrist says:

    Wow. My daughter and her family lived in Hawaii for five years and we drove by this CC church several times. I had no idea that the pastor there was so crazy. She attended Calvary Chapel with us for 18 years in San Diego as a child. Thank God she never attended this CC with her family in Hawaii.

  15. Reuben says:

    It seems like every time I read something about a church lately, it confirms my lack of desire to darken the door of another one. I have not been to a service in about a decade. What goes on in those places that sinks people’s minds to lizard people and zombies, wife killers and right wing politics? I would rather perform my own eye surgery! COVID vaccines make zombies?!? For real?!? People wonder why Christianity is shrinking?

  16. Michael says:


    I have a very small church of good, large hearted people trying to follow Jesus.

    There is nothing I could report that would interest many…but it is a life giving group.

  17. Alan says:


    Much of the church has none of that.
    Find life.

  18. Captain Kevin says:

    Reuben, I understand how you feel. Fortunately, there are still a few small churches with broken, but good people and humble leadership. Michael pastors one and I’ve found one in Arizona.

  19. Reuben says:

    I have no doubt that there are a few good churches out there, but my God, how do things like this keep happening in churches? Do they even have a food pantry? Does Jesus come up in the sermons? This is yet again an accelerated evolution of the mentality that AIDS is bad, but not as bad as condoms, and deifying those who spew such filthy nonsense!

  20. Janet Linn, BrideofChrist says:

    I share Reuben’s lament. What is happening in so many evangelical churches that so many have evolved into such insanity? There must be some common cause. It’s almost as if these churches are teaching people to be paranoid. I don’t see paranoia taught anywhere in the Bible, so where is it coming from?

  21. Michael says:

    The common cause is theological illiteracy…evangelicals talk more about the Bible and understand it less more and more as time passes…

    If there really a zombie apocalypse, then one better get prepared by reading this:


    Interestingly, Max Brooks is the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft.

  23. Xenia says:

    Zombies… weird. I indulge the guilty pleasure of following true crime stories, especially those involving Mormons. Right now Chad Daybell is on trial in Idaho for conspiracy to murder several people, including his girlfriend’s 2 children. He imagined himself to be a visionary and if anyone got in his way he said they had become zombies so it was ok to kill them. This was all tied up in his bizarre end-time scenario (and his lust for the lovely Lori). So, Zombies.

  24. R'as al Ghul says:

    The zombie genre has been overdone. Though if one wants to see a comedic version of the genre, one can watch “Shaun of the Dead.”

  25. TRY says:

    Pastor JD is not for everyone, but he is loved, and I am one who loves this awkward, emotional brother in Christ. He is an Arab who loves Jews, and he was wise enough to decline the temptations of worldly success after he became a popular speaker at prophecy conferences, pulling back to serve his own congregation and community. Calvary Kaneohe is providing for the needy in many generous ways, and they never ask for tithes or donations, either from their own congregation or from online viewers, and yet they always have a surplus beyond their needs with which to take care of widows and orphans and poor, sick, and hungry. As for the zombies, that is his name for the flat affect and personality changes that he says have afflicted some of those who take the Covid19 vax. I have not observed this, but a vulnerable member of my family does suffer neurotransmitter swings whenever affected by Covid, so I can see his point, especially as I did the medical research after my own bout with Covid gave me sleepless manic periods followed by depression caused by depletion of serotonin. No doubt Pastor JD carefully and prayerfully considered the effect of his words on his congregation and online viewers, and knew that those who hear him teach regularly would “get the reference.” Context and history would assist with understanding, but the Holy Spirit is the One who connects us, and it grieves Him when the church becomes known for its scorn rather than its love for one other, my brethren.

  26. Captain Kevin says:

    Nice try. Next.

    Farag is not for anyone who is biblically literate or versed at a minimum level in actual science.

    For those like you who are biblically illiterate and enjoy sensationalist tripe, he’s the ticket.


  28. R'as al Ghul says:


    If you would like to try some zombie fiction, go with Max Brooks or Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies (and similar literary mash-ups).

  29. TRY says:

    I am quite Biblically literate (and also literally literate, as I am a retired English teacher and researcher). My father was an Episcopal priest, and we raised our family in the Anglican church. I have a great respect for the scholarly method and the recent discoveries and translations of the Dead Sea Scrolls, which clarify many puzzling verses in Scripture, as the angel foretold to Daniel. The heart counts more than the brain, however. God bless you, brother.

  30. Michael says:


    If you think Farag is a good teacher, you are biblically illiterate.
