    A friend of mine claims to be "Jesus"

    It's not a claim that has taken over his life, he functions as a normal person, he doesn't wear robes or preach in the street, etc. like this person does: Inri Cristo - Wikipedia

    I made a post about this a few months back so this post is a continuation of that post

    I initially dismissed his claim

    But now I think he could genuinely be onto something.......

    I actually think that he is an extraordinary individual and he is just using the term "Jesus" as shorthand for a being who is extraordinary, for want of a better term

    So not literally Jesus, but something similar to Jesus - without being personally divine of course!

    And obviously he is like Jesus in some regards but unlike Jesus in others

    I think he may have been appointed to some high office based on personal merit:

    Adoptionism - Wikipedia

    And it would be hypocritical of me to dismiss this claim as I myself believe that The Projection directly communicates with me and that I have been somehow chosen for this

    Indeed I think I may have influenced him towards believing he is like Jesus

    Sounds delusional, since Jesus is God’s ONLY begotten Son. Unless, he is born again and has been transformed to new life in Christ; then the scriptures indicate believers do become more and more Christ-like as they mature in the Lord.

    Unless you're meaning the Arsenal footballer I'm pretty sure Jesus died a good while ago,
