WWJD? I read the story, and I thought this was good coverage on this man/religion ["This Man Thinks He's Jesus H. Christ!" by Keith Plocek, November 30]. I heard about this man before on the Today Show. I don't particularly care for this religion, but to each his own, I guess.
I am curious though; if José Luis de Jesús Miranda is Christ himself, would he be wearing a Rolex watch? Why not sell the Rolex and give it to the "outreach" program? If I remember correctly, Jesus walked many a mile; why is Christ driving a BMW now? But if I think about it some more, I guess I can answer my own questions and ask myself, what would Jesus do?

Very good article: I do believe that José Luis de Jesús Miranda is God among us. Once more our loving God has become flesh for us, so that we can see him and hear him, exactly like in the days of Jesus of Nazareth. People believe in Jesus of Nazareth because they were not there, that is very easy to do. Jesus of Nazareth was a human just like José Luis de Jesús Miranda, and for that reason people back then did not believe in him either. We don't think José Luis de Jesús Miranda is God in the flesh/carnal body, no; we believe that the Spirit is God, and that Spirit is the word that comes out of his mouth, the powerful word he preaches/teaches. We are able to prove everything he says in the Bible. The people, his believers, are not stupid -- we have brains, and we are thinking humans. As a matter of fact, I believe we are very smart, because we no longer believe in the lies of religion. All that José Luis de Jesús Miranda does is give us hope and a reason to live a good and abundant life. We are free from bondage, and he has given us our true identity. We know where we came from, what we are doing here and where we are going. No longer afraid of any hell or devil, free from sin and condemnation...Well I can go on and on, but it is too much to express in a comment.

Dangerous: I cannot believe people would fall for this crazy nonsense. I read all the Left Behind series. Those books are meant to be fictional but inspirational. Some of José Luis De Jesús Miranda's chatter is too similar for comfort. World domination? Murder? What about innocent children being harmed? Stealing? How is all of this okay? Next we will hear suicide is good for you. Go ahead, do it!
I believe that his followers are in a dangerous situation. I pray that we don't end up finding them all in some warehouse "educational" center rotting, cuz he said so. May God bless all of these followers with the truth and keep them safe. And may those who are brainwashed find the truth soon and run away from this guy as fast as they can.

Saved forever: First of all, I want to thank you for your professionalism. Most of the time, the editor or writer puts his own beliefs into the story instead of just reporting and allowing the readers to form their own opinions. I am 26 years old, and I guess you could say I grew up in the religious system. Until about ten years ago, I thought the Devil was lurking around looking for me. Then I heard this man and the words that were coming out of his mouth. At first, it was kind of difficult, but because everything he said was coming directly from the Bible, I listened more. His teachings were clear and unbiased. Every "church" you go to has a different translation for every verse, and usually the pastors add to the scripture. Here it was what the scripture said, no adding on. This is what really convinced me that all of De Jesús's teachings were real. De Jesús never proclaimed himself as anything, the Church proclaimed who he was. It wasn't until after the church named him Jesus Man that he himself proclaimed it. I now do not fear anything. I know that I have angels who provide me service. I know that I am saved forever, and that I am blessed.
Say I committed a crime. I still would always be my parents' son, and they would always love me. Now, imagine God's love toward you. Do you really think that God would deny you over anything the religious system claims is a sin? Not one living person can obey the thousands of commandments written.
Fantastic fajitas: I agree with many of the statements about Santos, The Taste of Mexico -- the margaritas are outstanding, and the enchiladas are delicious ["Chipinque Cuisine," by Robb Walsh, November 30]. However, I wholeheartedly disagree with your assessment of the chicken fajitas. The meat is not standing in a "pool of water," but rather in awesome peppery gravy that makes the fajitas to-die-for. (I thought a food critic would know the difference between water and gravy.) My husband and I eat at Santos at least three or four times a month and rarely order anything besides those chicken fajitas. We have never tasted any better, and we have tried many throughout Houston. Furthermore, the service at Santos is second to none. We have always been extremely well-attended to by each and every staff member. The chips and salsas are always plentiful, the tea glasses are never empty, and the service comes with a smile and a welcoming handshake. If your readers are looking for a great meal at a fair price, do what we do, and make Santos a weekly habit...You won't regret it.
