Crazy or real Christian?

Pastor Josmar Flores Pereira hijacked an Aeromexico flight in 2009 while claiming he was on a mission to warn people that god was planned a big earthquake. He sounds nuts, right? But he claims that becoming a Christian got him off drinking and drugs. I’m confused. How can god cure a drinking problem and skip the whole mental illness shtick?

Bolivia sentenced Pereira to 7 years in prison. He’s been in prison since his arrest.

Flores Pereira hijacked Aeromexico Flight 576 flight from Cancun to Mexico City while threatening to detonate a device he claimed to be a bomb. The alleged explosive device was a couple of juice cans with wires.

The Bolivian pastor was in Mexico organizing and holding a series of meetings to predicate his Christian beliefs. He later alleged that he never intended to detonate any explosives.

I’m going with nutball pastor on this one. What else can it be?
