How to Convince People That You Are Jesus
A.J. Miller has decided
he is Jesus. He has moved with his followers to a rural compound near
Kingaroy, Australia, and an estimated 60 people have joined him there.
These kinds of arrangements usually end pretty well. How does he pull
it off? He follows the 5 easy steps...

So you want people to believe that you're Jesus Christ. Or, if
you don't want to be tied down to anything so specific as Jesus, then
you at least want people to think you are the physical embodiment of
God on earth.
Who wouldn't want this? The list of benefits is as long as my arm.
First off, if you're a man (and generally speaking, it mostly seems to
be men who reach for this dream), then you get to have sex with all the
women in the congregation.
Which if you think about it, is an incredible privilege for the
women. I mean, you're having sex with some gullible, emotionally
fractured woman. That woman, on the other hand, is having SEX
WITH GOD. Where to even begin? Let's just call that one a
What else? Oh, yes. Everybody has to give you all their
money. That's a nice perk. You can use that money to buy
yourself stuff, like cars and cocaine and weapons and a big plot of
land somewhere to hole up for when the End Times come.
Sound good so far? I don't want to oversell it, but if you ask
me, being Jesus or God or even just the reincarnation of the
Bodhissatva of Compassion, is a pretty sweet gig.
But how do you go about it? If you just start telling random
people you're God, that's not going to fly. Bullshit detectors
are going to flash red alerts left and right.
Luckily, there's a well-established template you can use. And
there's a man in Australia who's using that template to good effect
right now. His name is Alan John Miller, or AJ Miller, or just
AJ preaches what he calls the "Divine Truth," a message which mostly
boils down to the idea that he is the reincarnation of Jesus, with a
little bit of the Law of Attraction thrown in.
Let's break down what AJ is doing into 5 steps, in case we want to
apply these principles in our own lives.
1. Find lonely,
damaged people, or people who are at a low point in their lives, and
offer them unconditional acceptance and love.
This is known as the "Love Bomb." There's no end to the damaged
people out there, and the internet makes them easier than ever to
find. The trick is to get them among your people, and create
instant, loving, attentive friends for them. At least at first,
this often requires repeatedly contacting, visiting and pressuring your
target to come to group events.
Labor intensive, but it works. AJ's followers often say that they
were outcasts before they joined, but found total acceptance from AJ
and the group.
The key to remember here is that you don't have to convince everyone
that you're God - far from it. For this to work, you only have to
convince a relatively tiny group of people, and you can pick them out
one by one.
2. Make liberal
use of fear and intimidation, as well as Character Assassination and
Once you've got someone believing in you, the task is to break down any
remaining resistance they might have, and achieve total
domination. Breaking Sessions are long meetings where targeted
people are criticized and insulted, and encouraged to dwell on their
failures and weaknesses. The ideal outcome of this is to leave
the target in an abject state, crying uncontrollably.
If the target dares question you or your ideas, you subject them to
blistering attacks on their intelligence, their looks, their abilities,
whatever you've got on them. If they try to use logic, you answer
them with nonsense. Obviously, you plan this abuse ahead of time,
and you encourage other group members to pile on.
By all accounts, AJ makes frequent use of Breaking Sessions, with some
sessions reaching such an extreme that neighbors of his compound call
the police because of all the shrieking and
a simple message, which is the One True Message, that you hammer
Pretty self explanatory, right? It's the old Keep It Simple,
Stupid approach. In AJ's case, the message is the Divine Truth
that he is Jesus reincarnated.
He combines this with elements of the Law of Attraction, which might be
where he stumbles just a touch. The Law of Attraction is the very
old idea, popularized in recent years by "The Secret" books and movie,
that whatever you think about, good or bad, will magically come to
pass. Cosmic, sure, but why add unnecessary elements?
In any case, AJ is on the record as saying that Divine Truth is "God's
truth," and the "absolute truth of the universe."
people a new identity as members of your group, and create an Us vs.
AJ has a rewards system called "spheres." The more you understand
about his teachings, and the better you follow them, the higher the
sphere you attain. AJ's followers tend to identify closely with
the sphere they've reached.
AJ also encourages his followers to regard outsiders with suspicion and
contempt. Obviously, people outside the group are inferior, since
they haven't accepted the Divine Truth that AJ is Jesus.
AJ also employs a nifty concept called the "soul partner."
Numerous people have left their spouses and families after AJ helped
them wake up to the fact that the person they married was not their
your followers from the outside world and from competing messages.
Most would-be Messiahs do this by establishing a private compound where
followers live. Once you've got followers living on the compound,
you can control who they see, what information they have access to,
when they get up, when they sleep, what they do - pretty much all
aspects of their lives.
You can cement this control by inventing a DoomsDay scenario in which
most people on earth will be killed, but people on the compound will be
AJ hits all these notes. His compound is about
600 acres in a
rural area outside Kingaroy, Queensland, Australia. The compound
was purchased for him by his followers, and currently houses 60 or more
people. AJ preaches that a coming world catastrophe will wipe out
the major coastal cities of Australia, and turn his compound into a
There you have it. You're armed with the 5 steps, and you have
AJ's stellar example to draw from. If you're diligent and you
apply yourself, within a couple of years, you should have disciples
flocking to you in droves.
