Last night I was watching the ABC Primetime show “Outsiders”. Several types of “outsiders” were discussed but the last one they focused on was a man from Puerto Rico claiming to be the second manifestation of Jesus Christ. He lives in the suburbs of Miami and has a house in Houston as well as Puerto Rico. He drives in luxury vehicles and wears Rolex watches. His message is this: Paul was the only biblical writer to get the message right. Paul’s message is this: There is no sin.
Jose de Jesus claims that there is no sin and no punishment outside of what is received here on earth. No Hell. No Satan. All will go to Heaven and all should enjoy the things of this world.
Jose de Jesus goes so far as to mock organized religion. He mocks the church and encourages his followers to get 666 tattooed on their bodies to show that it is meaningless. When asked why he keeps the monetary gifts and cars, etc. instead of giving the proceeds to the poor, he answered by saying that it would be wrong of him to give away something that someone gave to him. That would be offensive. When asked about those who deny him as being the embodiment of Jesus Christ, he simply stated, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”. Why do they need forgiveness if there is no sin?
