Sterling David Allan believes he may have been John D. Lee in a former lifetime.  Allan, who turned vegan in 1996, is a proponent of peace, and speaks against polygamy, contrary sentiments that he ascribes to being possible outshoots of lessons from that former lifetime. He is also a strong advocate for each individuals being responsible for his/her own beliefs, and not leaning on another. He is very critical of the "just follow the prophet" teaching of the LDS Church and has been excommunicated for extreme beliefs.
Sterling David Allan
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sterling David Allan (1963 - ) is the CEO of Pure Energy Systems Network (PES Network, Inc.), discovered scripture codes, has organized several religious and political study groups and organizations, and has run for public office, both local and national.
He lives in Eagle Mountain, Utah with his wife Cheri Moon, and four children: Christian, Emilee, Aubrie, and Hailee. He has a degree from Brigham Young University in Microbiology, followed by two years of graduate work in Physiology and BioElectrochemistry. He considers himself religiously alinged as an Independent Remnant, having been excommunicated from the LDS Church in 1993 for apostasy.
 Religion and Politics
After serving an LDS mission in Hokkaido, Japan from 1992 - 1993 (missions were 1.5 years at that time), then teaching at the LSD Mission Training Center for two years, Allan became politically involved in the tradition of then LDS President, Ezra Taft Benson, who encouraged members of the faith to become active in the political process in general, to defend the U.S. Constitution in particular. To that end, Allan founded the American Study Group in 1991, which grew throughout the Rocky Mountain west to around 4,000 participants. 
Allan was excommunicated from the LDS Church in 1993 after teaching extensively that the Mormon Church in particular, and Christians in general present a chiastic mirror to the Jews at the time of Jesus Christ, except that the Jews were looking for a political messiah, and got a spiritual savior instead; while the Mormons/Christians, in contrast, are focused on the spiritual savior, and are rejecting the political role of establishing a government of God on Earth, which would protect the freedoms of all mankind. Allan said that instead of defending freedom, the Mormons/Christians are helping establish the antithesis of a socialist order prophecied to persecute the saints.
In support of this view, Allan wrote a book called The Vision of All: Our Past, Present, and Future as Foretold in Book of Mormon History  (1997); then published in a magazine he founded called Greater Things (1992) a large number of chiasms and parallels he found in LDS scripture texts, as well as in non-canonical, inspired works, such as the Declaration of Independence, and LDS General Conference talks. 
He then found extensive chiastic and parallel language patterns in a 10-minute lecture had composed two years prior as a wrap-up of his Vision of All book.  Believing this message important and timely to deliver, and believing there to be a mandate to present the message, he attempted to get up in LDS general conference to give a talk in Oct. 2002 and was ushered out by security guards.
Allan's excommunication cited "extreme beliefs regarding a Davidic Servant"  as the causative reason. He believed at the time that he could possibly be the "one mighty and strong" prophesied to set in order the house of God, among other things, and his unwillingness to repudiate that possibility resulted in his removal from the Church. He has subsequently modified his belief, holding that the "one mighty and strong" is a quorum of 144,000 individuals, not all LDS, who effect the planet for good.
In 1997, he discovered a code embeded in the scriptures that he coined "Alphabetics".  The phenomenon is based on the alphabetical presentation of the words found in scriptures, such as in dictionaries and lexicons and the numbering thereof, and associating those numbers and words in their vicinity with contemporary numbers. For example, Word 4150 in the Old Testament Hebrew lexicon (numbering by James Strong) is the last four digits of the LDS Church Headquarters zip code in Salt Lake City. Word 4150 includes the meanings of: "holy tabernacle"; "a place in which an assembly is held", "temple", "seats of the prophets", "an appointed sign". The LDS Headerquarters includes the world famous Salt Lake Temple and Tabernacle and Assembly Hall, where seminanual general conferences are held, presided over by those revered by the people as "prophets".  Not all his findings are as lauditory.
 Was Allan John D. Lee in another life?
In 2003, Allan wrote an article giving his reasons for believing that he may have been John D. Lee in a former lifetime.  Lee was the only person who was punished for the most controversial and repugnant act in Mormon history, in which 120 people were massacred during a time of heightened angst by the Mormon population, which had been driven brutally from place to place and seemed to be at the brink of yet another such driving with the incoming Johnson's army. Allan, who turned vegan in 1996, is a proponent of peace, and speaks against polygamy, contrary sentiments that he ascribes to being possible outshoots of that former lifetime. He is also a strong advocate for each individuals being responsible for his/her own beliefs, and not leaning on another. He is very critical of the "just follow the prophet" teaching of the LDS Church, saying is it the same as the "give us a king" mentality of the Jews anciently, leading to spiritual laziness. "Would God that all were prophets" is the slogan Allan has had posted for years at the bottom of each page at greaterthings.com.
 Political Experience
In 2001, Allan founded Remnant Saints Inter-Continental Congress, to establish a World Constitution that will protect the freedom of all mankind and encourage individual responsibility and goodness.  The group fizzled due to a lack of funding.
After an unsuccessful push to have Congressman Ron Paul drafted to run for President of the United States in 2004 (formerly http://Paul2004.com), Allan ran for that office himself (formerly http://Allan2004.com), founding the United States Providential Party, finding that the Libertarian Party wasn't a very good match for him. The new party never got off the ground, and Allan's write-in campaign gained no following of substance.
 Energy Field
Growing weary of religion and politics, needing a more secure income for his young family, Allan began turning his attention to cutting-edge alternative energy, starting in earnest in 2002. He established a reputation aggregating a news and directory service for "free energy" technology, which by his definition includes solar, wind, geothermal, tide, along with the more exotic technologies such as magnet motors, cold fusion, and zero point energy.
In 2005, he founded the New Energy Congress  to review the various clean energy technologies and rank them according to a set of criteria including: clean, renewable, affordable, reliable, credible, safe; compiling these into a Top 100 Energy Technologies listing. 
Allan sang baritone in BYU's UpperClassmen barbershop quartet for two years. He is also a composer of songs and arrangements for the piano.  He recently joined Timpanogos Chorale in American Fork, Utah.
