Chapter 13: Knowing religion by experience.
To prepare me for what I would be asked to do in the future, nothing could have provided me with more experience—hence, according to Einstein, more knowledge—than being completely faithful and loyal to the religion of my birth—the LDS/Mormon Church.
By the time you read this autobiography you should have enough information to understand the Real Truth™ about what both Joseph Smith, Jr., and I have done in publishing the Book of Mormon and The Sealed Portion—The Final Testament of Jesus Christ. You should understand that neither book was written by either of us. You should now understand that a group of highly knowledgeable individuals, who prefer to remain anonymous, developed the stories and asked us to publish them in the form that we did.
So that neither Joseph nor I could take credit for the books, nor be blamed for them, this anonymous group developed stories which included characters used to introduce and represent who they are. Their Book of Mormon introduces these characters as the “Three Nephites” (Timothy, Mathoni, and Mathonihah), “Mormon,” “Moroni,” “John the Beloved,” and “the brother of Jared.”
These seven characters, none of whom was actually real, were specifically chosen and included in the storyline of the books. They represent the seven individuals who belong to the anonymous group that oversees the work that I have done, and am doing. They are also the seven individuals who, along with myself, comprise the Board of Directors of The Humanity Party®.
“John the Beloved” is introduced first in the Book of Mormon as one of Jesus’ original apostles (see 1 Nephi 14:19-30). A clue to his existence is contained in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
“Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
“Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
“Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
“This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.”
A counsel of Roman politicians and leaders commissioned the Greco-Roman Caneaus to be the main writer and editor of the first three stories about Jesus. After Caneaus presented his literary work known as Matthew, Mark, and Luke, to this, the anonymous group of highly knowledgeable individuals whom I described above were able to persuade Caneaus that another version of Jesus’ life would be beneficial. Caneaus, in turn, was able to convince the counsel to include this version as the Gospel of John.
(Note: Some historians and scholars refer to Caneaus as “Q” … Yeah, and one of Grandpa’s all-time favorite television series, Star Trek, also used the “Q” character which is uncannily similar—look it up for some entertainment. But anyways …)
Incognito (with their identity hidden), this anonymous group was able to convince Caneaus that he had failed to include many things about the character Jesus in his (Q’s or Caneaus’) original three stories. Of this, it was written: “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.” (John 21:25.)
When they wrote their Book of Mormon, this anonymous group implied the exact same thing: “And now there cannot be written in this book [1830 published Book of Mormon] even a hundredth part of the things which Jesus did truly teach unto the people . …” (3 Nephi 26:6.)
The Book of Mormon storyline went on to explain its purpose. It was meant to “try [the] faith” of the European-American Bible-believing Christians for whom it was written:
“And these things have I written, which are a lesser part of the things which [Jesus] taught the people; and I have written them to the intent that they may be brought again unto this people, from the Gentiles, according to the words which Jesus hath spoken.
“And when they shall have received this [Book of Mormon], which is expedient that they should have first, to try their faith, and if it shall so be that they shall believe these things then shall the greater things be made manifest unto them. And if it so be that they will not believe these things, then shall the greater things be withheld from them, unto their condemnation.”
—3 Nephi 26:8-10.
If you don’t believe in the Book of Mormon (the lesser part), you’re certainly not going to believe in The Sealed Portion (the greater things). If you don’t believe in the Bible, then you won’t believe in the Book of Mormon or The Sealed Portion. You don’t need the religious books associated with Grandpa and his work. But, because you belong to the human race, you do need the last book, The Dream of Mortal Life, Understanding Human Reality—A Final Warning to the Human Race.
So, if all this religious stuff was all made up, then why? Why did this intelligent group of people feel it necessary to keep making up stuff? Really?
Do you actually think religious people are going to listen to Grandpa, after I tell them the following: God isn’t real. Their own brain is the only god they’ve ever known. And, the true source of the spiritual feelings they get from God actually comes from the neurological functions of their own brain?
Do you think that people who believe the Bible is the word of God are going to listen to Grandpa, after I tell them that all religion is actually from the devil? Will they want to hear that the devil is the only entity answering any mortal prayers? Are they going to be open and willing to accept the fact that all scripture was made up from the philosophies of men (from the devil)?
The New Testament presented a new idea at a time when the Great Roman Empire was on the verge of collapse. The poor (the majority) were rising up against the rich and powerful (the minority). The poor people were uneducated and much more religious. As Grandpa explained, religion gave the poor, who were controlled by the rich, a feeling of equality that their daily lives living in the Roman world denied them.
The New Testament was responsible for the success of the leaders of the Eastern Roman Empire. This is where most of the poor lived. They were rising up in rebellion against the government of Rome located in the Western Empire.
The success of the Eastern Roman Empire led to the success of the Roman Catholic Church, which led to the reign of the kings and queens. This led to the eventual development of the white-skinned European powers from which the United States of America originated. Similarly, to how the Eastern Roman Empire became the greatest nation on Earth, the United States of America became the greatest nation on Earth. Both “successes” can be attributed to Christianity.
Christianity developed because of the desire of the marginalized, disenfranchised, slaves to corporations (i.e., employees) to feel equal. Christianity thrived because spiritual feelings are real and strong and can convince people that God is present in their lives.
European-American Christians took advantage of these spiritual feelings, when they began to import slaves from the African continent. They developed Christianity to control their slaves. Sure, guns and chains worked; but the greatest cause of calming the slaves and keeping them from rebellion was their conversion to Christianity. The belief that Jesus would one day come and make all things good for the slaves worked. It gave the slaves hope. In the meantime, Jesus taught them to be humble and contrite and that this would lead to their “salvation.” … Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
Although Jesus Christ has not yet come to save them and bring equality to the world, Christians still believe that He will someday. Until then, the majority clings to patriotism and loyalty to the Christian god. They believe that it is okay to do or think bad things of each other because their Christian god has provided them with a release of their guilt. This is provided through the blood of Christ and by payment of tithes and offerings to God’s church.
Nothing has done more harm to the true purpose for our existence as mortals upon this earth than Christianity. But, on the other hand, nothing has done more to unite the people of this world and give them hope and faith in humanity than Christianity. This is the great emotional conflict I have always had in doing what I do. Where the world might be a nightmare, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is a good dream.
After I wrote the last chapter, one of my critics and enemies posted the following comment:
This man, William “Bill” Witt, is a perfect example of why I am forced into seclusion and hiding. He likes to call himself a friend and lukewarm supporter of me and the work that I have been asked to do. However, from the moment I first shook his hand, I knew who he was and what part he would play in my life.
In introducing the world to The Sealed Portion—The Final Testament of Jesus Christ (see How I Received The Gold Plates), I was counseled to write:
“I then received many instructions and was told that I would lose all my friends, family, and close associations before I would be ready to present the translation of the plates to the world. I asked these beings what further would be required of me and whether I should tell my family and friends. I was instructed to leave the employment of the LDS Church and to give no indication as to why, or tell anyone what had taken place. I was not even to tell my wife, for she was to be tested to prove her worthiness and ability to support me in this work. I was told that I would travel extensively in preparation of doing this work and that I would become known as an apostate of the Church, but that I should allow the Church to do with me as they wished, for its own sake. I was told that I would be given many opportunities to meet those who were being prepared at this time to aid me in this work, but I was cautioned to test each one, so as not to be deceived or betrayed by them. I was also instructed in many other things that I cannot reveal at this time.”
After the transfiguration of my brain on June 16, 1987, whenever I have met a person and physically touched them, I have had an immediate sensation and flood of memories of who the person was in a past life, but ONLY if I had shared memories with them.
It is no secret that in one of my past lives, I was Hyrum Smith, brother of Joseph Smith, Jr., the Author and Proprietor of the Book of Mormon. As Hyrum, I was not a True Messenger. Hyrum’s life was needed to prepare me with the experience necessary for obtaining knowledge to become the True Messenger that I am today.
In an ironic twist, meant to provide some proof of my calling, when I met Bill Witt, I realized that he lived before as William Earl McLellin. “Bill” McLellin was one of the original members of the First Quorum of the Twelve Apostles* of the LDS/Mormon religion.
*A very important historical fact, which might help shed some light on the work in which I am involved is that Joseph Smith had nothing … ABSOLUTELY NOTHING … to do with choosing and organizing this First Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Joseph would cede the authority to Oliver Cowdery, Martin Harris, and David Whitmer—who were known as the Three Witnesses of the Book of Mormon—and all three would later become some of Joseph’s most bitter critics and enemies.
Long story … as short as possible …
The early European-American Christians, who had accepted the Book of Mormon as another source of scripture (God’s word), failed the test of their faith (see above) when they read the book. Therefore, Joseph was counseled to give them things that they could not understand and that would make them stumble. (See Jacob 4:14.). He gave them the priesthood.
I knew the reason why Bill Witt was drawn to me and the MWAW. It was in his DNA, per se. Bill Witt would act during this lifetime exactly like he acted in his last, as William McLellin. McLellin never lost his belief in the Book of Mormon, but he often called Joseph an impostor and “a dis[a]llusioned Satan.”
Bill joined forces with others of my enemies and critics in an effort to discredit me and persecute the MWAW. The Real Truth™ about Bill Witt is uncannily profound in proving that I knew him for who he really was the moment that I met him. But remember, as you consider this Real Truth™, what Bill Witt has done is actually good for his True Self. As I have explained, our mortal incarnates follow very closely to the same pattern of behavior each time we connect to a mortal body.
William McLellin wanted to be part of the work Joseph was doing. He pleaded with Joseph to befriend him. Joseph did to some degree. I did to Bill Witt … to some degree. But unlike Joseph, I did not call Bill Witt on a mission to help (see Doctrine and Covenants, Section 66). I have avoided Bill Witt as much as possible.
Bill Witt would love to see me put in jail. Bill Witt would love for it to be proven that I am not who I claim to be.
My advice to Bill Witt has always been the same: go back to church.
While Joseph Smith was in the Liberty Jail, that he wrote to other leaders of the Church about the true nature of William “Bill” McLellin. After Joseph wrote this letter, not only did McLellin want to physically fight Joseph (as Grandpa has explained men tend to do when they get angry because they have no knowledge with which to repudiate the Real Truth™), but McLellin became one of Joseph’s most vociferous enemies.
McLellin eventually joined forces with John C. Bennett. Both men were present, with painted faces, outside of the Carthage Jail on June 27, 1844. Both men fired at Joseph from outside of the jail. But, before the mob these men had formed retreated to the outside to shoot at the windows of the jail, “Bill” McLellin rushed the door to the room where Joseph and Hyrum were being held. It was a single bullet from McLellin’s gun that enter Hyrum’s brain and ended that mortal existence.
Bill Witt will read these things and follow the course of his mortality, as he has always followed. I will never be around him again and will stay safe from the collusion (secret agreement) that he has with others in trying to usurp (take possession by force, without right) and find fault with this Marvelous Work and a Wonder®.
Is there any wonder why I avoid people like Bill Witt? There shouldn’t be now.
As I did in June of 2009 to his friend, Harry Dschaak (a.k.a. John C. Bennett), whom I will introduce later in this autobiography, I am calling out Bill Witt and revealing the Real Truth™ about him and his character. I do this for the good purpose of presenting an example of how religion can cause so much damage to a person’s life, when the Real Truth™ is revealed.
Again, as I wrote above, I need a lot of experience in order to have the knowledge necessary to fulfill the role of a True Messenger. A past life as the closest companion and friend of the founder of the first, original religion that started in the New World (the United States of America), was profoundly important. My brain was changed to allow me to remember this past life. This was important for my protection. My brain change allowed me test each person with whom I would come into contact, so as not to be deceived or betrayed by their mortal Self … by their Lucifer.
Bill Witt was a member of an LDS/Mormon Bishopric, when he came across and began to read The Sealed Portion. Like McLellin’s, Witt’s testimony of the “lesser part” (Book of Mormon) was strong, but way beyond the mark intended for the book. The Sealed Portion did what it was meant to do—open Witt’s mind. Once opened, Witt began to lose all of the “payment” he was receiving working for Lucifer. He lost his LDS/Mormon Church membership and his wife and kids.
I was contacted by one of Bill’s old high school girlfriends whose first name was Coral. (There is no need to reveal her full name, as she is an innocent participant in my relations with Witt). Coral asked to meet me with Bill. We met at a library located in Murray, Utah. Coral proceeded to tell me that she and Bill wanted me to marry them one day, after Bill divorced his wife. Coral threatened the very things from which Witt gained his self-worth and value in life—his religion and family.
Witt deceived Coral into thinking that he was going to leave his family for her. Coral was staying at the home of one of my former loyal friends and supporters at the time she was waiting for Bill to leave his family. Although they were having sex, Bill did not leave his family for Coral and eventually broke her heart. Feeling sorry for Coral, I would one day meet with her and her brother and explain that all that Witt had done to her had nothing to do with me or the work I was doing.
Bill Witt began to blame me, personally, for all of his troubles. Just like many of my critics and enemies have done and do, I am blamed for their choices. Although Joseph placated William McLellin and gave him a mission to do, I did not counsel Bill Witt in anything. Unlike Joseph, my sole purpose as the True Messenger was to give Bill the Real Truth™.
To many, I am the monster. I am the devil … the deceiver … the “dis[a]llussioned Satan.”
Those who have lost value and worth in their lives, by listening to the Real Truth™ and leaving religion, have a hard time with it and must place the blame on someone other than their own Self. Many have come to me in order to receive value and replace the worth that they have lost. Joseph Smith allowed McLellin to get close enough and involved enough to “pay” him for what Lucifer was not willing to continue to pay him after McLellin accepted the Book of Mormon as God’s word. Although Bill Witt had lost his position in the Bishopric, I had nothing to offer him to replace the value and worth he had lost.
Witt would turn to drugs and alcohol as a means to placate his loss of self-worth … just like McLellin. Witt’s wife would remain loyal to the LDS/Mormon Church, just like McLellin’s. McLellin’s wife would remain loyal to the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. McLellin could find no value to replace what he felt Joseph had taken from him. For the rest of his life, McLellin searched for that value. He would seek out David Whitmer and ask Whitmer to help him organize a new religion, a new church that would give him value. The Real Truth™ destroyed Bill Witt’s life and turned him into my enemy and critic.
I have seen how the work that I have been asked to do has destroyed the lives of many people. It has affected many with whom I have been intimately involved, including my own children and family.
While I was religious, my life was fine. My hope was secured in the value I received as a member of God’s only true church. It was an easy life. Do what you’re told by the Church leaders and you will find value and self-worth and have an easy life. (This is why I have pleaded with Bill Witt to go back to church.)
I came home from my mission and knew the next step that the leaders of the Church wanted from me was to get married and start a family. Upon my return from my mission, I went to work at the same company where my brother, Mike, was a supervisor—Paramount Acceptance. I was a bill collector. I was the best collector the company had ever had. Mike had set all the collection records in the company. I broke all of Mike’s records my first month.
During a meeting with the other collectors, many who had been collectors for years, I was asked by the general manager, Glen Bendixon, how I did it … how I became so successful as a collector with little experience.
My response was typical of an LDS/Mormon: I pay my tithing.
I got into an argument one day with another collector, who was LDS/Mormon. He said that he would have to pray about anything that he was told to do by an LDS General Authority. I was livid and defended the Church and its leaders based on I believed they were—God’s ONLY true and living authorities on Earth. We got into a pretty heated argument. One of the sweetest ladies present, Alyson, almost crying, asked us to stop arguing. For her sweet sake, I stopped the argument. Paramount wouldn’t fire me for arguing. I was the best collector. Well, also, Paramount was owned by LDS/Mormons. How could they fire me for defending the faith?
As collectors, we were paid a small hourly wage with an opportunity for commissions. Each time, I would beat my own collection record from the previous month. The managers changed the commission structure, lowering it to what management felt a collector should earn. This would eventually lead to my quitting such an unfair and corrupt company, as I began to see it.
I did not go back to Argentina to bring Alicia Ester de Olexen to the U.S. to be my wife. I broke her heart. I destroyed her life and her dreams. It was shortly after returning from my mission that I met Paula Rae Blades.
I was destroying the lives of the other collectors. I was the cause of their losing income because of collecting so much and having the commission structure lowered. I would end up destroying the lives of many people throughout my life, taking away the worth and the value that they once received from the world, especially from religion.
In 2004, I would write in The Sealed Portion introduction:
“Yet in all my experiences, I have never hurt another human soul. The depth of my compassion for my fellow human beings is hard to imagine when one considers the effect that others’ lies and behavior have had upon me. There are many who consider me their enemies, but I love them all and wish no ill upon them. I have lost wives, children, and all of my personal effects, and have been persecuted by those who once loved me. But in spite of all of these negative experiences in my life, I have yet to turn against another and harbor ill feelings toward him or her. In other words, my conscience is clean and pure before my God and my fellow human beings.”
I feel sad for Bill Witt. He’s actually a very personable guy … but so was the man who ended one of my last incarnates. Both of these men are good because they are gods; and I am simply a part of their eternal dream.
There was no possible way that I could have a clean conscience doing what I would be asked to do (destroy people’s self-worth and value). I needed to understand that religion was the cause of all the world’s problems; that religion was actually from Lucifer—our mortal egos. I needed to know that, unless we get rid of religion, humanity will be destroyed for the very last time upon this earth.
Einstein knew what this intelligent group of seven anonymous people also knew, “The only source of knowledge is experience.”
The only way I could possibly gain this experience was to work for the religion in which I believed with all my heart, and which I would defend to the death. I needed access to everything that a lay member would never see. I needed the empirical evidence provided by the experience of being part of the Security Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
