(MIRROR) — This man believes he is Jesus Christ reincarnated despite being arrested more than 40 times and banned from Britain.

Brazilian preacher Inri Cristo, 66, dresses up as Christ and has been spreading his message to hundreds of ‘followers’ for decades.

But not everyone appreciates his sermons, and the bearded man has spent plenty of time in police custody for his views on capitalism, abortion and even Christmas.

In fact, when Inri began his religious path in 1979 by visiting 27 countries, it resulted in him being expelled from the United States, Venezuela and Britain.
