Man who says he’s Jesus brings his controversial message back to Houston

HOUSTON — He claims to be the second coming of Christ, but his message is controversial.

Dr. Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda came to the Houston area Sunday, and once again, a crowd gathered, rapt on his every word.

Miranda runs a worldwide organization called Creciendo en Gracia (Growing in Grace) – an organization that he claims has millions of followers.

He preaches a message of freedom to indulge.

“His message tells us that we’re perfect, that there’s no sin, there’s no devil,” Gisela Villanueva said.


Miranda also says there’s no hell.

But experts say Miranda’s operation has signs of being a cult.

Miranda wants to establish a world government with himself as the leader.

He’s also been criticized for accepting expensive gifts from followers like watches and cars, and living an extravagant lifestyle.
