Australian Couple Claim To Be Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene [Video]
This man and his wife actually believe they are Jesus and Mary. Alan John Miller, 47, and Mary Suzanne Luck, 32, form Australia claim to be the reincarnated beings of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. Watch the video and see for yourself.
The couple claim to be the biblical figures from thousands of years ago, under the title of Divine Truth:
Just a little over 2000 years ago, we arrived on the Earth for the first time, Miller says on his website. Because of my personal desire and passion for God, as I grew, I recognized not only that I was the Messiah that was foretold by ancient prophets, but also that I was in a process designed by God that all humans could follow, if they so desired.
Since moving to Wilkesdale region of Queensland in 2007, the two have gathered nearly 40 disciples. However, cult watchers are concerned and want to end it:
Australia's Cult Awareness and Information Centre and the Anglican and Catholic churches are concerned that the couple, relying on supporter donations to sustain themselves, appeals to the vulnerable.
The moment someone becomes God or God's voice on Earth, it gives them another level of authority to enforce submission to them, Cult Awareness and Information Centre spokeswoman Helen Pomery told the Courier.
Since moving four years ago, the couple's presence has actually improved life for those around them. The Wilkesdale real estate market has greatly increased, however it is due to their followers purchasing the surrounding land. Nearly $400,000 was pooled by the group in 2009 so that they could purchase one square-mile of land in order to hold frequent meetings and build an international visitors center.
I don't want to be Jesus. Who wants to be Jesus? Miller told his followers. But I love the divine truth.
What do you think of this couple and their claims? Do you believe there is some truth to it or is it all a hoax for attention and money?
