    Which is correct:

    1-As you, I believe that John's theory is wrong.
    2-Just as you, I belive that John's theory is wrong.
    3-Like you, I believe that John's theory is wrong.

    I think "3" is correct.
    I believe that John's theory is wrong, as you do.
    is correct but there is no "do" in "1" or "2". However it seems to me that people might say things like "1" or "2". I am not sure

    I would go with 3.

    Like you said, "as you" is normally followed by some form of the word "do". "Like you" can also be followed by "do", but "like you" sounds much more natural to me on its own than "as you" does.
