Here’s the story of John Todd. He was a man who exposed Illuminati secrets and told how it influences to music industry. I have read many testimonies and this one is one of those, which I believe is true, why? John Todd belonged one of Illuminati’s bloodlines himself called The Collins. Here’s info about John Todd:
John Wayne Todd (c. 1950 – November 10, 2007), also known as “John Todd Collins”, “Lance Collins”, and “Christopher Kollyns”, was an American speaker and conspiracy theorist. He claimed to be a former occultist who was born into a ‘witchcraft family’ before converting to Christianity. He was a primary source for many Chick Publications works against Dungeons & Dragons, Catholicism, Neopaganism, and Christian rock. Although most of his activity was during the 1970s, his claims continue to be spread in some fundamentalist Christian circles.
Todd was discovered in 1968 preaching and married to a woman named Linda. He claimed to have been a witch “in the Navy“, but converted to Christianity while visiting a southern Californian Pentecostal church. After disappearing for a few months, Todd returned without his wife, saying that God told them to seek other mates. In 1969, Todd joined the United States Army, later saying that he did so with the intention of establishing a coven of witches. He claimed to have served as a Green Beret in Vietnam before being transferred to Germany, where he killed a commanding officer. His explanation for not serving jail time for this was that the Illuminati freed him from jail and eliminated his military records.
These records were later recovered by investigative journalists working for Christianity Today, who found that he had never been to Vietnam, but was only stationed in Germany for a few months before being discharged for psychiatric reasons and drug abuse. One report concluded that Todd found it difficult to distinguish reality and fantasy. After being discharged, he disappeared again until 1973.
During the early 1970s, Todd became one of a handful of speakers making the rounds in evangelical Christian circles warning young people against the occult. Like two other of those speakers, Hershel Smith and Mike Warnke (whose claims of being an ex-Satanist have likewise been disproved), Todd claimed to have been a Satanic high priest before his conversion, which he dated as 1972. (In one meeting between Todd and Warnke, the two had a backstage confrontation and Todd accused Warnke of stealing his testimony regarding the Illuminati.) Todd also claimed that John F. Kennedy was still alive and that he had been Kennedy’s “personal warlock”. Christian publisher Jack T. Chick created a comic book, “The Broken Cross”, based on Todd’s allegations that Satanists were taking over America. In 1973 allegations surfaced that he had been making sexual advances toward young women and teenage girls at Christian meetings and a Jesus Movement coffeehouse, was incorporating witchcraft teachings into his Bible studies, was carrying a .38 handgun into church meetings, and was using drugs. In addition, he impregnated his wife’s teenage sister. After some Christian leaders who had promoted him took steps to distance themselves, including evangelist Doug Clark denouncing him on his television show, Todd dropped out of sight from fundamentalist Christianity. During this time, Todd spoke in charismatic churches, claiming to have evidence that fundamentalist churches were tools of the Illuminati.
In 1974 Todd moved to Dayton, Ohio where he opened an occult bookstore and began recruiting for a Wiccan coven. In 1976 Todd became the subject of a criminal investigation over reports that he was involving underage girls in sexual initiation rituals for his coven. Following an investigation of his activities by neopagan leaders Isaac Bonewits and Gavin Frost, which uncovered drug use and underage sex, Frost’s Church and School of Wicca revoked the charter it had granted to Todd’s coven. He was convicted of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and given a six-month sentence, but served only two months before being released due to epileptic fits.
Todd resurfaced in the evangelical Christian community in late 1977, this time claiming the existence of a vast Satanic conspiracy led by an order of witches called the Illuminati, supposedly including a number of Christian organizations and well-known Christian figures such as Jim Bakker, Jerry Falwell, Billy Graham, Bob Jones, Sr.,Oral Roberts, and Pat Robertson. He claimed to have given, as a member of the Illuminati, $8 million to Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel to launch the Christian rock industry, which Todd said was a Satanic invention to entrap Christian young people in rock music and its “demonic beat”. He claimed that Falwell had been “bought off” by the Illuminati with a $50 million donation. He also claimed that US President Jimmy Carter was the Antichrist and that the Ayn Rand novel Atlas Shrugged was the Illuminati’s blueprint for unleashing a planned Satanic takeover. He urged Christians to stockpile weapons and food in preparation for a Satanic takeover in 1980. He found a niche speaking in fundamentalist Independent Baptist churches, and for a time created quite a stir.
Tapes from Todd around 1979 just prior to dropping out of sight indicate that he had returned to teaching Oneness Pentecostal (aka, “Jesus Only”) theology. Todd dropped out of sight again after 1979, reportedly moving to rural Montana after issuing warnings that the Satanic takeover had begun. He was later reported to have delivered a speech in Cedar Falls, Iowa in 1983 at the invitation of Randy Weaver.
Todd was arrested in May 1987 for the rape of a University of South Carolina graduate student. After his arrest, he was additionally charged with sexually molesting two children who attended a karate school where he worked. He was convicted of the rape in January 1988 and sentenced to 30 years in state prison. In 2004, Todd was released, but he was put in the care of the Behavioral Disorder Treatment Unit run by the South Carolina Department of Mental Health. On November 10, 2007, Todd died in the institute.
Here is the info concerning Todd’s death:
John Todd has been deceased for some time, but when and how he died is a matter of debate. There are 3 different accounts listed on different posts on this page.
- Fritz Springmeier says in his book, Bloodlines of the Illuminati, that John Todd was killed immediately after his release from prison in early 1994.
- John Todd passed away Nov. 10, 2007 while being held in the “Behavioral Disorder Treatment Unit which is overseen by the SC Department of Mental Health”
- John Todd was murdered in the fall of 1979. Please see the May 9, 2008 update on this page.
Take your pick! For a long time I held Springmeier’s account, but now I consider the possibility of the 3rd account. I definitely do not believe the second account even though Wikipedia published that one. I like to go to Wikipedia for information that I consider uncontroversial, but I also know that it doesn’t measure up to scholastic criteria of an encyclopedia, which is supposed to be truth. Wikipedia itself says, “The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth:” (From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Verifiability )
Below lists chronologically the emails I received concerning John Todd.
Email received February 7, 2006:Former Inmate Christopher Kollyns, SCDC# 145461, AKA John Wayne Todd, was serving a 30 year sentence for Criminal Sexual Conduct 1st Degree. His sentence started in May 1987 and he was released from our agency in April 2004 due to the expiration of his sentence. Dennis R. Patterson, Sr. Director, Division of Classification and Inmate Records South Carolina Dept. of Corrections (803) 896-8551Mr. Kollyns was deemed a Sexually Violent Predator pursuant to SC Law. He is currently housed at the Behavioral Disorder Treatment Unit which is overseen by the SC Department of Mental Health. He has been housed there since his release from our agency. Dennis R. Patterson, Sr. Director, Division of Classification and Inmate Records South Carolina Dept. of Corrections (803) 896-8551
On March 9, 2006 I received emails from a person named Sekhmet*:John Todd is alive and well and IN PRISON. I have visited him there. He was convicted for rape, and there are many other victims who have come forward. He has served his prison time, but is deemed too dangerous by the State of South Carolina to be released to society, and I completely agree. Another thing you should know is that Todd made my acquaintance when he asked for a wiccan chaplain.
* On May 16, 2007 I received an email from a man who states:
“Sekhmet is Arabic for Venus, the destroying female god with the face of a lion.” Knowing how the Illuminati likes to use symbolism, I find this very significant! Also see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sekhmet
I sent copies of both of these emails to trusted friends. One of them said he telephoned Sekhmet and believes her story to be credible.
Please do not ask me for the full names or email addresses of my sources for I would not wish for their privacy to be invaded. If you would like to verify this information, you can call the telephone number listed.
June 21, 2007 update
I received an email on this date that stated:
On page 93 of Springmeier’s Bloodlines of the Illuminati, he states “reports to this author allege that the day Todd was released from prison, he was picked up by a helicopter and killed. To the best of my knowledge Johnnie Todd was killed the day he won his freedom.”
“Johnnie Todd won his appeal (the Federal appeals court came down hard on the state of So. Carolina) and in Jan. 1994, Todd called this author from prison to inform him that he was to be released, but that he needed tens of thousands of dollars. This author was not able to come up with the thousand of dollars that Todd wanted immediately. Later, Springmeier was told that the Illuminati offered to let Todd live if he could come up with a large ransom. Reports to this author allege that the day Todd was released from prison, he was picked up by a helicopter and killed. To the best of my knowledge Johnnie Todd was killed the day he won his freedom. Obviously, the Illuminati does enforce the oaths and vows that their members force d to make. The entire episode is of course a sad one for this author.”
My opinion: I would certainly take the word of Fritz Springmeier above that of a Wiccan chaplain whose name means “destroying female god”!! I tend to believe that the person claimed to be John Todd in the Behavioral Disorder Treatment Unit is not really him and that John Todd graduated years ago from the sorrows of this sorry world to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus in Heaven!
Dec. 29, 2007 update
On this day I received an email that said:
I called the institute that John Todd was staying at in South Carolina. and they told me that he passed away 11/10/2007
But again I say, it may not have really been Todd who died in that institution.
May 9, 2008 update:
On April 30, 2008 I received the following email:
Back in 78 I attended Liberty University. A guy named Steve Hoffer was a John Todd promoter of sorts on campus. This amounted to simply passing out some tapes and the like not really like some sort of official promoter. I saw him last in the fall of 79. He had a letter he claimed was from Johns wife and it informed him that John had been killed that fall late. He read me the letter, I saw the letter. He was warned that he could be in danger. He has some close relationship at least by mail with the Todds.
He left for home for Christmas break but never showed up. His car was found abandoned in Cincinnati about two weeks later. He was found around early May of 80 a few mile outside Lynchburg tied to a tree and garroted in classic style, his body still hanging there. As you may know this is a special method of death and has a history and meaning. The death of a heretic.
At the time of his death Steve had been publicly investigating Jerry Falwell while a student at Liberty. As you can figure this caused no small controversy considering Steve was a student there. As you may know Falwell was on Johns list of conspirators. Falwell publicly told the student body that he didn’t know Todd, as Todd had claimed he knew Jerry personally, as well as saying Todd was off the hook mentally. Steve’s death can be verified if the records are still available or if Todds wife is still living she may remember Steve.
I to am from Columbus Ohio where John claims to be from. Listening to some YouTube yesterday jogged my memory. Its been 30 years since I last listened to him. Anyway there is actually a small Druid cemetery in Columbus. The stones are in a circle and have no dates or names on them. These graves may indicate the founding members of the original lodge that apparently left Wales sometime in the 1800’s. There are also a lot of Welsh and Pickish graves nearby. John claimed to be a Druid and Pickish or lowland Scottish.The name Todd means father in Cymraeg and is old Celtic. Columbus Ohio is said to have had the largest concentration of Welsh immigrants in the US. There was even a Druid Hall being used in Columbus and so known as such up into the 1940’s. It may still be there and is in an old part of town and it and the name were openly known which may indicate the measure of their presents.
May 22, 2011 update:
In April 2011 I received another email from the same person above:
Good to hear from you and to read this letter. Please don’t publish my name although I hold out little hope that the thing isn’t known anyway by the right folks. Or wrong folks. The Collins folks are very powerful and well connected around here. Not in public as it were but when one does some looking into it the truth can be found. And it’s not just the Collins folks.
As I think I told you in an email that Druid grave area have vanished. The stones were moved. It was a large scale fail on my part not to get a photo of the 13 markers all numbered and in a circle. But as important someone is watching at least what goes on at your web site. While we cant produce photos of this grave area let its removal even if only between a few serve as a reminder of some realities.
More info. It may be that Steve Hoffer’s style of death was not published in the news. But it was mentioned by Fallwell and I heard it with my own ears as I had made a trip back to Liberty U after bootcamp to see a girlfriend and attended a service. Steve’s body had just been found that week and Steve being of note around there Falwell talked about it. Plus it was a big mystery on campus as to what had happened to Steve. Falwell felt it was the work of God. That Steve was turned over to evil for the destruction of the flesh as a warning for attacking Falwell himself and thus Gods work. I sat and listened to that knowing about and having read that letter from Todd’s wife and that Steve had been warned but it didn’t sink in but slowly over the years. In fact I have come to the point of seeing all this as not simply happenstance. My being from Columbus and meeting Steve etc. etc.
It was great to get confirmation that Jack and Todd’s old pastor say that they had not heard from him since late 79. Great work on this guy’s part. I am understanding here that Todd was killed very late in 79, his wife sent Steve a letter within weeks and Steve was dead by say 3rd week in Dec 1979. Looks like related killings. I am also going to believe that this letter and any related paper tying Steve with Todd was taken from Steve’s things. If Steve had anything at his parents home it was taken as well. His parents are most likely passed on.
Have you had any sort of traditional or otherwise demonic harassment over this? Let me just say that Columbus has some very powerful witches here of the first order. And they know i know about them not just from this but before I ever knew of John Todd. That’s one reason I perked up back in the day when first learning of John and where he was from.
By they way another guy that got a hold of me from YouTube said he was from the UK wanted to know what I knew about the Collins folks. I sent him some info about high up government appointments in state government. Have not heard from him. He wanted me to dig but these are just not the sort of folks you want to dig on outside the net. I told him even if they knew John and it’s been awhile now what 30 years they wouldn’t say anything if what he said was true.
