John Todd


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[1] – November 10, 2007),[2] also known as “John Todd Collins”, “Lance Collins”,[3] and “Christopher Kollyns”,[4] 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.[3]

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.[1][3]


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[5]), Todd claimed to have been a Satanic high priest before his conversion, which he dated as 1972.[3] (In one meeting between Todd and Warnke, the two had a backstage confrontation and Todd accused Warnke of stealing his testimony regarding the Illuminati.)[5] Todd also claimed that John F. Kennedy was still alive and that he had been Kennedy’s “personal warlock”.[1][3] Christian publisher Jack T. Chick created a comic book, “The Broken Cross”, based on Todd’s allegations that Satanists were taking over America.[6] 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.[1][3] In addition, he impregnated his wife’s teenage sister.[3] After some Christian leaders who had promoted him took steps to distance themselves, including evangelist Doug Clark denouncing him on his television show,[1] 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.[3]

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.[3]

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.,[7]Oral Roberts, and Pat Robertson.[8] 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,[9] 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.[1] He also claimed that US President Jimmy Carter was the Antichrist[1] and that the Ayn Rand novel Atlas Shrugged was the Illuminati’s blueprint for unleashing a planned Satanic takeover.[10][11] He urged Christians to stockpile weapons and food in preparation for a Satanic takeover in 1980.[7][11] 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.[12] Todd dropped out of sight again after 1979, reportedly moving to rural Montana after issuing warnings that the Satanic takeover had begun.[13] He was later reported to have delivered a speech in Cedar Falls, Iowa in 1983 at the invitation of Randy Weaver.[14]

Later life

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.[15] 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.[16] On November 10, 2007, Todd died in the institute.[2]


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.

  1. Fritz Springmeier says in his book, Bloodlines of the Illuminati, that John Todd was killed immediately after his release from prison in early 1994.
  2. 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”
  3. 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 )

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

Mr. 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.

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:

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.

  1. They operate alot like the mafia. They killed William Cooper as well and he spoke of similar issues. This evil cabal has a long history of destroying reputations and killing ones that reveal too much truth. These bloodlines own the media,the Universities, and the prisons, they can manipulate any form of info they choose in order to cover up the facts.

  2. Thank you for your reply. Sometimes people believe in some things, which are not 100% true but that doesn’t make them liars because they have no other info. I think John Todd story is relevant and has to be shared.


  3. Thanks for this updated info on John Todd, especially the eMails you posted.

    There’s many scenarios one can think of when it comes to this man’s life and demise, but one thing is for certain, He was firmly convinced of what he was speaking about, whether it was true or not… His talks must have surely resonated with the people he spoke with.

    From my experience in life, i have come to know and see that Truth is stranger than fiction and The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

  4. Thank you for your reply. This is correct and the Truth will come out eventually.


  5. John Todd was killed by the Illuminati, and was set up for the jail sentences. He himself said that they made several attempts to kill him and his family he gave invaluable information regarding the Illuminati and Freemasons , and their plans and intentions which all came and are coming true.

  6. Thank you for your reply. Just trying to do my best to inform people and try to find the Truth.


  7. Hi and thanks for your reply. I think that main thing John exposed was the Illuminati influence in music industry and that is a very real phenomenom. For example all the satanic activity towards lead artists and how occultist situations the record releases are. Check that aspect first before you make assumptions too hastly.


  8. How many saw John Todd live? He was a fear monger who thrived on the fears of the Church and people who wanted prophecy to be true. Not one of the things he said have come to past, ie, Charles Manson leading a race war.

  9. Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately those are only ones I have found myself. Now when Youtube is just spreading pedo videos and support satan’s agenda I think we are not going to get any more videos about him from there. Elite is scared to shit now and they are closing all their platforms so that Truth can’t be spread. Solution is you.. it is up to you now to speak and spread the info. I have done it 6 years now.


  10. Hi and thank you for your reply. That is absolutely right and you are on the right tracks just start a blog or site and spread this info. We need all the help we can get, thanks.


  11. read the articles of incorporation of the churches Mr Collins talked about, and you will see they are a creation of Satan, and Mr Collins was right. All corporate churches are franchises of the Illuminati, this is how America has been destroyed, the corporate church is the nexus of exchange of power from the Kingdom of Yahshuah to the fictional dominion of Satan and they have maintain the servitude of The People to the BEAST.
    When anything is registered it is moved from the jurisdiction of the land to the Sea, from life to death from the nativity to the BIRTH CERTIFICATE, slave from cradle to grave. and you put your trust in a corporate church pastor like Chuck Smith and Greg Laurie. and the breach that trust in the most evil and Illuminati way, they made the work on the cross void by compelling you to serve the Beast. and breach of trust is a commercial charge and enough cause to dissolve these corporations. period

  12. Is there any videos of John Todd Collins speaking ?
    In doing a web search, all that comes up are audio recordings and a black and white picture of John ?

  13. Thanks for your comment. Truth has many sides and only thing we can do is turn the stones and try to make our own conclusions.


  14. Key point: “Todd found it difficult to distinguish reality and fantasy” and so did Jack Chick, that’s why they got along so well. The truth is somewhere in the middle: yes, fundamentalist churches ARE a tool of dark forces, some consciously and some not. They promote mental illness and criminal behavior by teaching that molesters only need to confess their sins to god and obtain forgiveness from god, not from the victim. Organized religion is a magnet for child abusers and other sociopaths who hide behind a cloak of religious piety. Yes he was right that Jim Bakker, Jerry Falwell, Billy Graham, Bob Jones, Oral Roberts and Pat Robertson are all frauds and con artists. But so was Todd. Remember how Jimmy Swaggart accused the other AoG members of soliciting prostitutes when he was doing it himself. The crazy fuck couldnt be satisfied with making 100 million a year and they busted him for hypocrisy more than anything else. Swaggart is also a pedo. The problem with these self-contradicting schizoid predators is that they discredit real conspiracies and real occult forces.

  15. I think he was killed in 1994 because one day in the 90’s I wrote to David Meyer of Last Trumpet Ministries asking if he knew him, because he wrote a lot like John Todd talked. He wrote back to me that he was in prison. Then another day not so long after that, I started really thinking about John Todd again, he was really heavy on my heart, and I wrote to David Meyer again and asked if there was anything new. David wrote back that he had been released from prison but he was killed on the way out. I wish I still had those letters so I could verify the dates, but they got lost in moving.

    David Meyer died a few years ago and I don’t know if his wife or his son know anything about this, but I guess if anyone is interested they could write to them through their web site:

  16. But Paul, what concrete evidence do you have that John Todd actually was incarcerated? If they can get him out of prison for killing a Sergeant in the military then I’m pretty sure they can put him in prison if the want to. Honestly I think he was killed in 1979. Here is some info, he released several different audios of The Illuminati in the early and mid 70’s. At that time he was traveling giving lectures in churches and advising people of the true evil that is out there. So you mean to tell me from mid or late 1970s to 1987 (the year I was born) he just all of a sudden stopped going around and traveling spreading the true information that people need to hear. Just look a the time line. Quiet for almost 10 years and now when you hear about him he is gone to prison for child abuse. One of the worst crimes you can possibly do. I mean like you said, it’s not rocket science right. Check the timeline.

  17. i’ve looked into this and and there is not one bit of evidence that john todd was anything to do with zodiac productions….. the rest is just the stuff he’s claimed but i can’t find any REAL evidence to any of his outlandish claims…. many people believe what he says but i just can’t find anything concrete …… it adds to the conspiracy that he died while in custody BUT he was in for child abuse and those people are the most hated in prison by the general inmate population so it’s not rocket science that something happened to him while in prison…… the same as would most likely get beaten up outside in the real world if people found out he was a child abuser …….. if someone can show me definitive proof though that he wasn’t scamming everyone with his claims i’d be interested to see the evidence

  18. Thank you for your comment. I’m sorry, but I don’t have any info regarding about the letter. But I have to check more about Steven Hofer, thanks.


  19. Hello . . . Great blog thank you for the work. . . I’ve read the letter about Steven Hofer being murdered in 1979. Do you know who the letter is addressed to? . . . .and who it’s from? . . . Do you know if there is any record or quotes out there of Falwell being questioned by Hofer? . . .or if there is any other good sources from Liberty University?

  20. Thank you very much. I’ll try to do my best. Sometimes it’s hard because 2 jobs and other projects.


  21. Your site came to my attention today by reviewing John Todd, just want to say great job on this site Blogman. Very well done! Very well. Keep up the good work.
