He is the head of the Wordwide United Foundation, an organization that claims it alone has the solution to worldwide poverty and inequality. But this claim pales in comparison to Christopher Marc Nemelka’s belief that he is the reincarnated Hyrum Smith, the brother of Mormonism’s founder, Joseph Smith.
Nemelka insists that while working as a security guard in the Salt Lake temple on June 16, 1987, he was personally visited by Joseph Smith and told he was Smith’s reincarnated brother. Joseph and Hyrum met their demise while incarcerated at the Carthage Jail in June 1844. Nemelka claims that Smith told him that he was to finish the job Hyrum was unable to complete.
