    Understanding the True
    Origins of Mormonism

    The Incredible Story of a Race of Celestial Beings
    that once Came to the Earth...

    by Clare Gregory


    Chapter 12
    Return of the Nephilim

    On Independence Day, July 4, 1998, I celebrated my personal Independence. I made a commitment to myself to resolve the Mormon puzzle that had troubled me for more than twenty-three years, and I was determined to unravel the truth of the matter once and for all, no matter what the cost. I actually decided to quit my brand new job at Sun Microsystems in Silicon Valley, so I could devote my full attention to finding the answer. The contradictory facts of Mormonism’s theological history painted a story that I could not comprehend nor piece together. Either I was going to stay a Latter-day Saint in the “True Church” for good, or God would need to break down the spiritual mountain and send me into the plain valleys of truth and righteousness.

    I prayed again earnestly for an answer, but this time God led me to my Bible. I read the promise of Jesus who said that if we have the faith of a mustard seed, we could move mountains. The light poured into my mind, and it was clear that Jesus is not talking about physical mountains. He is talking about spiritual, mental, and emotional roadblocks that beset us all. If we pray and have faith in Jesus, God can take any spiritual mountain and cast it into the purifying ocean of truth, dissolving uncertainty, confusion, despair, and fear. I had read that scripture a hundred times but never caught the true meaning. I could imagine and believe that God knew all things, and He knew the truth about Mormonism. I reasoned, therefore, that He had the power to unravel the web of lies and contradictions that stood in my face.

    My heart throbbed. I felt my direction moving away from my LDS roots, and I feared making a mistake. I really didn’t care whether the LDS Church was true or false. I wanted to know the truth, and that is all. I was willing to do whatever the Lord desired and prayed sincerely that I would accept the truth, whatever it was. If the Church were true, then so be it. But God would have to unravel the conflicts for me.

    So I prayed even more fervently. I told the Lord that I believed He could move the mountain of Mormonism and completely cast the conflicting doctrine and historical roadblocks into the sea of the Holy Spirit, dissolving any falsehoods according to His will and timetable. I got up from that prayer doubting nothing. I didn’t know if it would be done in ten minutes or ten years, but God was going to give me exactly what I asked Him for.

    I’m here to witness God is faithful. Within two months, the mountain of Mormonism was completely moved into the sea of truth, and I’ve happily watched the contradictions dissolve bit by bit, concept by concept. God revealed to me the false logic and the imitation, false light of the LDS religion to my complete satisfaction.

    The way the Mormon puzzle of contradictions unraveled for me was unusual. I traveled to Sweden to meet with a very spiritual man, Christopher Warren, a former member of the LDS Church and Reorganized LDS Church who had studied the Book of Mormon intensely for over twenty years. He had written a summary of what the Lord had revealed to him about Mormonism on the Internet, which is included in the appendix of this book, but his posting did not answer the origin of the Book of Mormon. His web site intrigued me, though, and I wanted to meet Him in person. (1)

    I arrived in Arvika, Sweden, and was picked up by Chris’ wife at the train station. We chatted as I gazed out the car window, observing the pristine pine trees and lakes on the way to their house. Finally we pulled into a dirt driveway that winded around onto the Warrens’ property. A white house with two large pillars in front came to view. Forests and open greenery could be viewed for miles in this isolated place. A tall, lanky man stepped out of the house to greet me with a smile. We shook hands, and immediately I connected with him spiritually. He had a kind demeanor, unpretentious and gracious. He walked me around the property telling me about his calling from the Lord and mission. “Oh yes, right over there is where the Lord showed me a vision that a generator will be built someday. I saw it clearly,” he said, speaking as though he said nothing unusual, continuing in the next breath to speak about the property and his house in general.

    He had invited me to stay with his family as long as I wished, so I chose to stay for two weeks. I wanted to resolve the Book of Mormon issue once and for all, and I was determined that Chris could help me. I was not about to unplug my roots in Mormonism until all the major discrepancies were answered. My opinion was that Joseph had translated gold plates and saw angels with the witnesses, and I was not budging off that belief. What I had studied confirmed that those events actually occurred in history. If it took more or less that two weeks, I could always change my plane tickets.

    The first few days I suffered from jet lag, and felt like sleeping, and not a lot of progress was made. He gave me several books and pamphlets to read. Most of my time was spent studying in my room, trying to unravel the Mormon tangles. On the third evening, Chris and I got together to talk about the Book of Mormon. He had me read the following:

    “Behold, I am he of whom Moss spake, saying: A prophet shall the Lord your god raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass that every soul who will not hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people.” (3 Ne. 20:23.)

    Chris pointed out to me that this was supposedly spoken by Jesus soon after his resurrection. He could not be quoting Moses, but the verse is a word-for-word copy of Peter paraphrasing Moses. In acts we read:

    “For Moses truly said unto the fathers: A prophet shall the Lord your god raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass that every soul who will not hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people." (Acts 3:22-23.)

    In Deuteronomy, we read what Moses actually wrote:

    “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord they God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire anymore, that I die not. And the Lod said unot me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet form amongh their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.” (Deut. 18:15-18.)

    I could see that the Book of Mormon Jesus could not be quoting Moses, but Peter. But this is impossible for the Book of Acts containing Peter’s summarization had not been written at the time Jesus spoke to the Nephites. At that time, Peter would still be in Jerusalem waiting for the Holy Spirit to come as Jesus had promised his apostles. (I can already hear the LDS response: “There was another Book of Moses that Jesus is quoting that Peter also used, but it has been lost from the Bible, just like Paul and Moroni were quoting from the same source about Charity-- Corinthians 13:4-7 vs Moroni 7:45.).

    I was not surprised or shocked by the Book of Mormon contradiction. I had spent the last month reading much more damaging evidence than that. For example, the name Timothy, Jesus Christ, Alpha and Omega are Greek names not Hebrew, and yet these are included in the Book of Mormon. Lehi and his family would not have known them. Then there is the contradiction of archeological evidence and even the genetic tests of Indians matching Mongoloid blood, not Hebrew. I quickly admitted to Chris that something in the book of Mormon was not right, but I still couldn’t get passed the evidence of the witnesses. Where did the Book of Mormon really come from? To me, that question needed to be answered to close the door on Mormonism.

    Then Chris explained a principle about angels and spirits I was ignorant of. He explained that false angels can materialize as physical beings as well as produce tangible objects such as gold plates. Immediately I thought of the live snakes that Pharaoh’s magicians produced from wood staffs and realized the Bible supported his statement. It made sense. I had assumed that only resurrected angels from God had the power to do work in the physical realm.

    My mind was opening further. Chris’ wife had had an experience in which a demon appeared to her at bedside. She was so frightened, she didn’t know what to do. She went to grab a Bible that was on her nightstand, but the demon reached over and physically held the Bible down. She finally resorted to praising Jesus, and the demon vanished. But even with this evidence and testimony, I still insisted the Book of Mormon was God’s book. I had a sure testimony of the spiritual truths it contains. I had born my witness a thousand times, and I wasn’t about to just give in so easily. Feelings can be persistent, can’t they?

    The next couple of days I read some more information. David Whitmer wrote a pamphlet before his death reaffirming his testimony of the Book of Mormon and why he left the Church, which, among other reasons, was because of his belief that only Jesus is our High Priest. He believed that the “High Priesthood” in the LDS Church was introduced by Sidney Rigdon who influenced Joseph Smith and was not correct. David Whitmer later was involved with the Church of Christ, and in 1940 William A. Draves who was an Apostle in the Church of Christ with the Elijan Message, testified that John the Baptist appeared to Him, just like he did to Joseph Smith. He also spoke with one of three Nephites and shook hands with him, confirming the angel was from God according the key Joseph Smith revealed on discerning angels, and so on. Finally, I read another book that exposed the alcoholic drinking of Joseph Smith, revealing that all of the sacred spiritual manifestations at the dedication of the Kirtland Temple came when the brethren were drunk, Joseph and Hyram throwing up in spittoons and puking out the window.

    I had NO IDEA that such information existed, and the puzzle was being put together before my eyes. Oh, the angels in Mormonism were a real experiences all right, but they were CONTERFEIT ANGELS. These false angels laid their hands on Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdrey in a tangible form and gave them a bogus priesthood! They materialized gold plates from the spiritual realm into the physical and worked with Joseph Smith to translate the “bogus engravings” by occult powers using his peep stone into the Book of Mormon. It’s why when you read the stories of Joseph Smith’s translation process that it sounds more like “magic and tricks” than the power of God. It’s because he was using “white magic” and mixing this power with the Holy Spirit, creating a theological web of half-truths that once believed to be true, it is almost spell-binding to get out of! This explains Joseph’s use of divining rods to find objects and his interest in the Masonic rituals, which also having occult origins. It’s no wonder Joseph Smith was killed with an occult Jupiter talisman in his pocket!

    By my second week in Sweden I was finally disconnecting my mind from Mormonism, but it didn’t come easy. My head was clearly sorting through the errors, but my feelings were still pushing for a different direction. One night, at about 2:00am I tried to sleep. A “burning sensation” began revealing all kinds of principles of “light and truth”. It enveloped my entire mind and soul. It started in my head, moved to my heart, and even went into my fingers and toes! It burned deep within my spirit like fire. It was not a physical sensation. It was a deep, spiritual burning from the inside out. It actually felt very good. It was warm, peaceful, and comfortable. Voices entered my head, trying to convince me to submit to the light and believe in Mormonism. It was compulsive. I sensed it was not good, for God would never force His will on anyone. I was being spiritually raped, and I knew it. Suddenly, all the “good feelings” became disgusting to me. I resisted with all of my mental capacity and effort, trying to get the dirty white light out of me. But it was like trying to get super glue off a pencil. The rapist would not leave. It lasted for about an hour. I kept holding on to the fact that I could believe as I chose to, and nobody or no power was going to change my mind. After a while, I finally praised God for the trial, and lifted my voice up unto Jesus Christ in praise and thanksgiving, and I finally found the peace and power to break the demonic spell and go to sleep.

    While at Sweden, I had several confrontations with this false light and experienced the “burning in the bosom” that I had always heard about. This powerful light tried to force me to believe in the Book of Mormon. False angels appeared to me in semi-dream visions, and I wrestled with this “white light”. It was awful. I had been on a path for twenty years believing in the “burning of the bosom”, and I finally received what was promised. However, the “burning in the bosom” was not what I thought it was. It was a forced “white light”, and the power tried to compel me down a course I did not want to go. Now I can truly understand Joseph Smith, for with the burning in the bosom came thoughts and ideas of light that would enlighten my mind in the most unusual way. It is easy from me to see how someone could mistake this light for the power of God. I also better understand his Joseph’s approach, I believe, who rather than changing course when the light made a mistake or lied, he simply chose to remain faithful to it.

    It is also important to state that although prayer and praising Jesus got me through the initial shock and nighttime visitations of this false light, it was only through rational thinking and my intellect that I could control these compulsive feelings over time. My head taught me that I should not trust any of my feelings for a while. And for the first time in my life, I realized a freedom I had never understood. I FINALLY REALIZED I DID NOT HAVE TO TRUST MY FEELINGS ANYMORE! I was free to trust in reason, common sense, and my logical mind. I could build my life on truth, not my illogical feelings. I was free! And within a few days, the burning in the bosom subsided, and I was back to using reason and commons sense to guide me.

    I was completely delighted with the answers I had been given about the Book of Mormon and my false feelings, but the puzzle was not yet complete. I was going to learn something that tied all the loose ends together with a red bow. A few days prior to my departing Sweden, I was alone reading the Bible, and Christopher Warren walked into the room and sat down. My Bible was turned to Genesis Chapter 6:1-5 in the New International Version of the Bible:

    "When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal, his days will be a hundred and twenty years. The Nephilim [Nephis or Nephites] were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time." (Gen 6:1-5)

    In the Kings James version of the Bible, Nephilim is translated “giants”. To really understand these verses, the whole thought needs to be taken in context. It is describing the time before the flood. The world had become so wicked that God destroyed it. I used to think that people in Noah’s day went around killing each other, being angry, and just being “terrible” to each other. But after my experience with false light, I believe that much of the evil that covered the earth was a “self-righteous” attitude of “spiritual giants” that covered the land. It’s the kind of false light and hypocrisy that exists in the LDS Church today. It is imitation light in which people seek to become “spiritual giants” as an end goal in the mind, without the grace of God. God is not praised, but man is praised for his great wisdom and strength. Or worse, human beings begin thinking that they are gods themselves. God is viewed as a being who provides “opportunity” for this spiritual development made possible through gift of free agency of man, not the gift of Jesus’ love and grace. By choosing the right, men can become exalted. Jesus is not really a Savior, He’s a cosmic opportunist, being used by believers to achieve the end goal of eternal life as a god or goddess. Believers step on Jesus and use his power, rather than holding Jesus up as God to be praise and worshipped, there being only one true God.

    The concept of God and righteousness can become so corrupted, that we can believe in ourselves that we are “good” and “the sons of God” by birth-right because our spirit body supposedly was born of the Father’s resurrected body, thus giving us inherent “divine” capabilities and attributes. “Spiritual genetics” gives us the ability to become as God is. His divine power is part of our spirits, not His. But this spiritual genetics denies the fact that fallen men and women are truly “sinners” and unworthy of God’s presence, transforming the pure grace of Jesus Christ into an “opportunity of choice”. We are “saved by obedience to the laws and ordinance of the gospel” through the atonement of Jesus Christ. Priesthood ordinance and free agency saves us being made possible THROUGH the atonement of Jesus.

    Spiritual genetics is a counterfeit theology in the LDS Church as well as many other groups such as the “New Age” movement that are now spreading over the earth. Spiritual genetics denies the blood of Christ as being the only justification for eternal life. Eternal life is something one earns through the gift of free agency and spiritual opportunity. This is the God worshipped in Mormonism. Our choices saves us, not our belief and trust in God.

    "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matt. 24:37-39.)

    This is an extremely important verse to understand in connection with Genesis 6:1-5. Jesus Christ describes people that “appear” as normal human beings. They ate and drank, so they must have worked normally to produce food and drink. They married each other and had families. But they “knew nothing” about what was coming. Why? Because they were full of a self-righteous spirit, and they were “men of renown”. The King James Bible states these “mighty men” came from the “sons of God” that procreated with the “daughters of men”. They were called Nephilim or giants.

    Notice Genesis 6:1 makes a clear distinction between “sons of God” and “daughters of men”. One interpretation of this passage is that the “sons of God” refer to those who obey God and are righteous, whereas the “daughters of men” refer to those who follow after the carnal inclinations of fallen men. But if true, why were the men righteous and the women impure? People don’t degenerate based on gender--the men becoming good and the women becoming wicked. Jesus taught that the environment in Noah’s day was still forming marriages and family bonds. Therefore, we would expect men and women to be affected together, either for good or bad. For this reason, there is a much better explanation of what the “sons of God” refers to.

    To a Latter-day Saint who believes that spiritual beings can not materialize, the concepts that I’m about to explain will sound quite unnatural. The “sons of God” were not the sons of Adam, but they were fallen angels that found the daughters of Adam so attractive, they fell from Heaven and chose to create a race of “spiritual giants” through genetic breeding. From the notes of the New International Version of the Bible, we read:

    The phrase “sons of God” here has been interpreted to refer to either angels or to human beings. In such places as Job 1:6; 2:1 it refers to angels, and perhaps also in Ps 29:1. (where it is translated “mighty ones”). Some interpreters also appeal to Jude 6-7 (as well as Jewish literature) in referring to the phrase here to “angels”. (Notes Gen 6:1 NIV.)

    This is a much clearer explanation, I believe. Corrupt angels who could materialize mated with human beings, causing a world so mixed with false light and counterfeit doctrine, that God needed to send the flood to destroy it. The doctrine these fallen angels brought with them is spiritual genetics. We can become gods because we are good and divine by nature. The doctrine breeds a race of “spiritual giants” called the NEPHILIM. It is the LDS doctrine that teaches human beings are “sons and daughters of God” and not “sons and daughters of Adam.” It is the foundation of the LDS faith.

    But the doctrine is only a half-truth. The truth is we are not children of God by nature, but we are children of Adam. We are subject to the fall of human parents. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and only through Him do we become begotten sons and daughters of God. It takes the seed of Christ to beget us. That relationship is established by grace, through our belief in the Word of God. We become children of God through Christ only. That is the error.

    As Chris and I discussed Genesis 6:1-5, the word Nephilim shot into my mind like a sniper bullet piecing a steel plate. To my complete amazement, Chris told me the suffix “lim” in Hebrew is the plural form of the word. Therefore, the direct translation is “Nephis” or as the Book of Mormon renders NEPHITES. I then remembered the words of Jesus about the days of Noah. It suddenly dawned on both Chris and myself that these Nephilim in Genesis 6:1-5 are the same false angels who appeared to Joseph Smith in fulfillment of Jesus’ own word that history would repeat itself before His return. The Spirit of God touched my mind. I suddenly saw all the giant, golden statues of angels on top of the LDS temples. “These angels want to be recognized and worshipped!” I said. And their name? These false angels were so vain, they could not resist putting their own names as major characters of the Book of Mormon. It contains four books of Nephi!

    The spirit of the Nephilim is a false, arrogant, and self-righteous spirit that imitates the gospel of Jesus Christ so closely, it is difficult to detect the errors without a strong Biblical foundation. The Nephilim spirit produces “spiritual giants” among men, those of “renown” who are of “old” who are VERY IMPRESSIVE human beings. The essential claim proposed is that “secret knowledge” and understanding possessed in ancient times has been “lost”, and these impressive men of renown, according to their great light and revelation and spiritual abilities, have brought back the truths that existed in ancient times. Such is the need to declare universal apostasy and error, thus creating a false need to believe in these glorious messengers, the sons of God, who claim to restore truths that have been lost. Every Christian and Mormon should praise God for leaving such a clear scripture in the Bible to expose these false messengers that dominate and control the LDS religion. The entire paradigm of the LDS Church claims that angels “restored” the “old” truths of God that have been lost. Joseph Smith became a “spiritual giant” in the eyes of his people. Can any other scripture be so clear in the description of Joseph Smith and Mormonism?

    Now look carefully again at Genesis chapter 6:1. What did these “sons of God” or fallen angels lust for what? Beautiful women! And thus we see these identical abnormal desires appear in the early history of the LDS faith. This is no coincidence! What is the biggest controversy the LDS Church has every known? It was the sexual practices of the leader, Joseph Smith. He was sealed to at least twenty-seven women, one of which was only 14 years of age! And some of the wives Joseph had intercourse with were married women!

    "When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose." (NIV Gen. 6:1.) The Kings James versions states: “and they took them wives of all which they chose.” (KJV Gen 6:1)

    What are the chances of the Nephilim having the name Nephi and also having the identical vice of desiring beautiful women to marry just like Joseph Smith did? Did you know that an angel threatened Joseph’s life with a sword if he did not practice plural marriage? And he obeyed. I repeat: an angel coerced Joseph Smith. Where was Emma Smith in the decision? Just look! Joseph Smith was commanded to enter into sexual relationships against his will. And the LDS Church praises his obedience? It is believed this angel was from God? True angels can compel a human beings to marry at the point of a sword?

    May I point out that the issue here is not whether plural marriage in Biblical or not. Of course Abraham and other prophets practiced plural marriage. It can be debated that the doctrine in Biblical. But we must look at how the doctrine was established in the LDS Church to determine if the spirit behind the motivations and practice was from God or another source. Satan can take any true principle and pervert it according to his purposes. The “sons of God” who procreated the Nephilim, for example, were self-assuming and picked whoever they wanted to marry according to Genesis 6:1, inferring that the “daughters of men” had little if any decision in the matter. And such was the case of Joseph Smith. Emma did not want to practice the principle, and yet, Joseph Smith, compelled by an angel, forced it down her throat.

    Wake up Latter-day Saints!

    The word Nephilim, or false spiritual giants, translates NEPHI (s)! or NEPHITES.

    (1+1=2)! The Mormon equation is closed!

    After two weeks I left Sweden a happy and content man. The answer I had prayed for came, and the mountain of Mormonism was moved into the sea and sank. The Lord had finally reconciled the contradictions and inconsistencies of Church history and doctrine. The spiritual code of Mormonism had finally been cracked and exposed.
