“My parents enable my brother and his lifestyle and behavior,” Harmony says. “I wish my father would show more tough love on my brother. I wish he would just put his foot down and tell him to go get a job or ‘We will not pay for your food anymore. You cannot stay in our home rent-free.’”

Woman Claims Ex Who Told Her He Believes He’s Jesus Would Lecture Her ‘For Hours On-End – Until I Was Drained Mentally’

Jem says she dated Joshua for a year; asserting she was attracted by his “New Age” way of thinking. “It’s always been very abnormal and unusual – and at first that intrigued me,” she says. She says that was before she realized he had manipulated her into following him. She claims Joshua told her he was channeling “ascended masters,” and eventually claimed he was Jesus.

On Thursday’s Dr. Phil, Jem claims Joshua tortured her by making her take scorching hot baths (which he denies), forcing her to run through the snow until she collapsed, and even forbidding her from eating (he says they were fasting), so she could live off “God’s energy.” Jem says she lost 30 lbs. and didn’t resist because Joshua would lecture her “for hours on end until I was drained mentally.” She says she gave in just “to try and get him to shut up.”

“When I first met Josh, I was intrigued by his seemingly mysterious New Age thinking,” says Jem.

That was nearly three years ago. 


“He was extremely manipulative and controlling,” says Jem. She’s alleging that – during the year they dated – Joshua used what she now says are his “delusions” to manipulate her and justify “torturing” her. She’s claiming he required her to take scalding baths, made her run through the snow until she dropped from exhaustion, and forced her to fast for days at a time. “He tried to get me to give up food and live on God’s energy.”

Joshua’s family says he’s told them he believes he is the second coming of Jesus, and Tommy says that’s ripped their family apart. “When Joshua tells me that God speaks through him – I believe that I’ve lost touch with my brother.”

Joshua says he feels like when he told his family he was Jesus, they weren’t ready for that message. Tommy says he’s frightened because his brother is delusional.

“Every time Joshua is around our family he demands that we listen to him,” claims Tommy. He says he feels like he’s been bullied by Joshua “and it makes me feel disrespected because he doesn’t care about what I have to say.”

Tommy claims he once witnessed Joshua sitting on top of – and restraining – an ex-girlfriend, and that made him scared. Jem – another of Joshua’s exes – claims Joshua also told her he believed he was Jesus Christ and used that to justify manipulating her, starving her (he says they were fasting), and choking her when she told him she wanted to leave him.

Joshua says he regrets Jem was hurt when she was with him, but claims he was in “spiritual warfare” at the time – and has since repented.

“That’s what you expect when you’re a servant of the Lord – and this is what this is – persecution to me,” says Joshua. “I’m being persecuted for the way I was and my sinful nature.”

Joshua admits he told his family that he’s Jesus Christ, but says they weren’t ready for that message. Now he claims they’re persecuting him. Joshua’s dad, Willie, younger brother, Tommy, and ex-girlfriend, Jem all claim he’s delusional. 

 

Willie says his son dropped out of college, quit the National Guard and went through a “wizard phase” all before announcing that he is the second coming of Jesus. “I think Josh is using this craziness he’s portraying so he can be lazy and not have to work.” He claims Joshua can’t hold down a job “because he thinks he’s above it.”

“When my brother tells me he’s above work, all I can think is that he’s pretentious and arrogant,” says Tommy.

“My dad and my brother have a definition of work that requires a financial income,” says Joshua. He says he has a job – doing the Lord’s work – he just doesn’t get paid.

“I feel like Josh was lazy. He used spirituality as an excuse to get out of doing a lot,” says Jem. “I feel like all of it is just a bunch of baloney.”

“My Heavenly Father takes care of everything I have need of,” claims Joshua.

When Dr. Phil asks what his plans are, Joshua begins talking about scripture and the Apostle, Paul. Then Dr. Phil reads a statement from Joshua’s mother saying he told her a year ago “he knew him being Jesus was a false delusion.”

When Joshua changes the subject Dr. Phil says “You’re just avoiding, deflecting and filibustering – but I’m just asking you … Were you sincere when you said that to your mother?”

Neighbors Hector Campos and Ana Weed reportedly got into an altercation in their driveways on January 24, 2017 that ended in Weed dying after being shot in the heart by Campos.
