The ‘Jesus of Siberia’ has been arrested on numerous charges, including the founding of an illegal religious organization, extorting money from his followers, and subjecting people to emotional abuse and grievous bodily harm.
It seems he’s not the messiah; he’s a very naughty boy! During the police raid, cops found a cache of items that are somewhat unbecoming of a self-proclaimed messiah – both empty and full alcohol bottles, jewelry, weapons, sex toys, and a stash of money, held in rubles, dollars, and euros.
The unholy haul was uncovered at the cult’s compound in Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk Region, as the Siberian incarnation of the Prince of Peace was being arrested and charged with “creating a religious association whose activities involve violence against citizens.”
Siberia’s second coming of ‘Christ’ happened in 1991, when Sergei Torop, believing himself to be quite literally God’s son, started calling himself ‘Vissarion’ and established the Church of the Last Testament.
Followers of the c̶h̶u̶r̶c̶h̶ cult were banned from smoking, drinking, or exchanging money, and they live as vegetarian subsistence farmers. But apparently, those rules didn’t apply to the ‘god’ among men.
