I am quite surprised that a story like this is on 'Sky News'.

A man claiming to be Jesus is gaining followers and causing concern among cult experts in Australia.


Former IT specialist Alan John Miller, or AJ as he prefers to be known, runs a religious movement known as the Divine Truth from his home near the small town of Kingaroy in the state of Queensland. Mr Miller claims that not only is he Christ, but his partner, Australian Mary Luck, is in fact Mary Magdalene, who according to the Bible was present at the crucifixion. He told Sky News: "I have very clear memories of the crucifixion, but it wasn't as harrowing for me as it was for others like Mary who was present.




Dozens of this guys followers have bought homes near him. A former neuro-scientist has given up her career to move near the couple. A guy also left his wife and home in California to be near him.

Some, however, are concerned - like the Rev David Millikan, who has met AJ Miller and has studied cults for 30 years.




"The danger is you'll be drawn closer and closer into his web to a point that you lose access to your social life, you spend all your money, you'll have the curses of all your family ringing in your ears and you may well lose your relationship."


Through DVDs, the internet and in person AJ Miller is spreading his word globally.

I find it hard to believe that so many people buy in to this. I mean leaving homes/careers/countries to move closer to this guy. It is turning in to a cult, and we all know they dont end well sometimes.

Jesus the IT guy is it?

Not sure whats worse, the attention he is getting, the people that uhmmmm how do I word this... drink his jesus juice?, or that/if he really believes what he says.


To me just seems like a bit of egomania fueled by morons who are like oh yeah? You probably are Jesus.


And his gal pal just happens to be Mary?


You'd think they were on something.

ps: You know he's not the first Jesus claimant to come out of Australia lol I wonder what the stats are world wide for each continent.

Aaaand its another cult. Usually with him having sex with as many women as he can convince to join his cult. And with tax exemptions.

Are there any proofs that he is more than a man? Some miracle or some prophecies which could be verified?

Until then: Myth busted!

ha.. i live in Australia and vaguely remember seeing something on one of the news shows a few years back, about this guy.. i don't think anyone here would think he was Jesus.. he obviously has followers, but its a huge statement to make.. and to believe?

very odd, that people from over seas move here to be near him..

yeah but I think those people who move country and leave their careers to be near him must be missing something in their own lives. Or are just very gullible, naive people.

i guess we are all searching for what is truth to ourselves, so that must be their truth.. their connection..

im really spiritual, not in a religious way, so i get how sometimes there is the desire to be fully immersed in your version of spirituality.. it just seems a tad extreme to move countries.

yeah, maybe they are missing something within themselves.. they need someone else to validate what they are feeling possibly.. instead of knowing all the answers are within ourselves..

are there not people like this in Ireland??

When Jesus returns, he will not need to make a claim. He will have the stature and authority beyond question.

Not many cults here, that I know of. Apart from the odd staunchly religious catholic old lady that you come across. I suppose christianity could be seen as a cult

The vatican had Ireland sewn up for years, it is only this generation you find many Irish people starting to break away from it all. Disillusioned.

Well even an atheist or an idiot reading the Bible purely from it's written content would understand how ridiculous this is so......

It's amazing anyone would worship and believe in every word this man says. I'm an atheist and I see this as mind boggling. #Yahoos!

Well, thing is, there's no real proof that ol' jesus from 2000 years ago was more than a man.

So, from carpentry to IT. Should ar least be a pay rise!

Let's see him heal the ill, make the blind see and the cripple walk! At least turn water into wine!

Can't do?

Sorry!

Sounds a lot like this guy - the Jesus of Russia.

Anyway, my former brother in-law's younger brother once had an episode on a plane back from Egypt. He thought he was Jesus reincarnated as well, and started touching people because he thought they all had cancer and he needed to cure them.

It's my understanding that the is a pretty common mental illness.

It does make sense that if Jesus did return he'd be an IT guy as we all know 'Jesus saves'

Who is more whacked .... the guy claiming to be Jesus or those following him? I don't know. He obviously isn't Jesus. I wonder what his schtick is ... sex or money or power or fame or just batcrap crazy?

Nay-sayers beware many poo-pooed Jesus the first time around and eventually killed him.

Not saying this man is or isn't the Christ reborn, just reminding all of the first self proclamed
Son of God being laughed at,spat at, acused of lying, feared, threatened, and finaly crucified.

Maybe God keeps sending Him and we keep laughing at Him or doing away with Him.

How much is Jesus hocking DVDs for?


Is there any special commentary on said DVD that might establish the claims he is making?


Why would he hand out pamphlets, instead of a Bible?


Chumps will be chumps.

Well,he claims he remembers being crucified and bringing Lazarus back from the dead...
But I think the real test would be if he could knock together a decent table or chair from wood,in the style of 2000 year old middle eastern carpentry without help.

Only in the west. If you believe your a god in eastern philosophies, then you will be considered to have cracked it and realised your true self.
