Here is a video of Christopher Nemelka speaking about the first time he defrauded people with his sealed portion. In his own words he admits he wrote the sealed portion himself, he did not translate it, and there were, of course, no gold plates whatsover.
Yet he convinced Ida Smith and the current followers of the sentence at the bottom.
Was he really just running from his calling in 1995? Or is he a sociopath, a convincing actor and a pathological liar with a lifetime pattern of criminal activity perpetrated against vulnerable believers? How has he gotten away with this for so many years? Because he has learned how to use his fiduciary power as “one like unto the son of man” and exert undue influence to accomplish his will, benefit himself and defraud people of burial spots, retirement money, and personal dignity – and he gets away with it all because he disguises it as religion.
We have added the beginnings of Nemelka timeline to help investigators compare his words to the facts.
1980 – May – Nemelka graduates from high school
1980 – August – Goes on a mission to Argentine Aug
1981 – By his own admission, has an affair with an underage girl
1982 – Opts to go home early from his mission
The docudrama “Prophet or Predator” is discussed and clarified.
Taken from the comments on this site:
I’ve been a casual observer of CN and his organization (if it can be called that) for a year or so now. Why? I don’t know other than it fascinates me. Not anything CN teaches or espouses, just the dynamics of it all. As a non follower/believer, I’m not -nor ever will be emotionally tied to what CN has or hasn’t done, preached, or will preach. With that said, I have some genuine questions I’m hoping someone can answer. From what I can gather (and it isn’t easy given the obvious shifting around over the years), CN is an atheist. He doesn’t believe in a God, nor Jesus Christ, no atonement, no devil, no sin, etc etc. With that premise…
1- What saving graces does his plan/philosophy offer the rank & file human being?
If you believe in Chris Nemelka, would it be a sign of disloyalty if you took 10 minutes to read something Chris wrote when he wasn’t “running from his calling.” ? Here is the link.
You deserve access to objective information that is not someone’s hateful opinion. If you are considering making more sacrifices for this man you believe in, you have the right to do due diligence, to clink on links, to explore this site, read the documents and call them all false.
This link is just more of Chris’ research and writings, that’s all. There might be gems in what he wrote. There is no commentary from this site. Just a link to Chris’ writings about the things he believes.
It’s one thing to be a religious fraud. It’s another thing to commit financial fraud. Some people use one to commit the other. When considering whether Chris Nemelka deserves to be label a fraud of any kind, here is an article that might shed some insight.
THE THREE PIECES OF FRAUD
“A con artist requires three elements to commit fraud: opportunity, motivation and rationalization. First, he must have the chance to steal money and, second, a reason to steal it (usually involving profit or revenge). The third element is the unique part of fraud: He needs an explanation for himself as to why it’s OK that he’s doing it—an unappreciative boss, for example, or sometimes merely a big company that “won’t miss the money.”
Consider those elements in the case of Christopher Nemelka before jumping to conclusions. Does he have the opportunity? Does he have a motive? Does he have a way to rationalize it?
For criminal non-support. It is our understanding that Nemelka is scheduled for a preliminary hearing where he will try to convince the judge that he was a victim of the court system which disabled him from working, and he really does not owe that much.*
*NOTE: We previously stated that Nemelka entered a guilty plea in abeyance, but it has been brought to our attention that we made a mistake. As per our stated policy to correct misinformation as it gets pointed out, we have edited the statement to reflect Nemelka’s version of the negotiations regarding the current status of the criminal non-support case.
