Spirits take over his body and through him, perform miracles.

John of God - What are your thoughts on him and his powers?

I noticed his website compared him both to a mythical man and to Edgar Cayce who several times diagnosed dead people as having serious illnesses.

It might be better to look to oneself for a savior. IMO everyone has everything they need for the miraculous journey called life. It's good to learn from others but a distraction to worship others or give to them powers above those you yourself have. :mushroom2:

He made it to Oprah only 1952 after this OP.  He must be doing well.

Reminds me of the end scene of Man on the Moon, when Andy Kaufman is getting surgery from some scam-artist and he sees him take a piece of meat and conceal it in his hand, as it's supposed to be the tumor he's removing.  In the film, Andy laughs, because his whole life was a practical joke and now in his final hours, the joke was on him.

He should heal Stephen Hawking.  That would earn him a lot of respect and a lot of followers.  Of course he's incapable of doing this because he's a fraud.
