It is said that there used to be a Church of England clergyman named John Hugh
Smyth-Pigott. His congregation in Clapton declared him to be the Christ. It was

false Christs. Most of us are too wise to follow such a person, and much too
humble to think that we ourselves are Christ reincarnated. We would never claim
that, though some may act at times as if they believed that!
