Red Gadiantons derives its unusual name from two sources. Red refers to communism. The term Gadiantons, however, is a little more obscure. The name is taken from The Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is a book of holy scripture comparable to the Bible. It affirms the Bible’s authenticity and declares the divinity of Jesus Christ and the centrality of His teachings to our lives. It teaches of Christ’s Atonement and His redemption of mankind. It speaks of His resurrection and witnesses that He lives. It bears powerful testimony, in conjunction with the Bible, that all men must come to Christ to be saved.

Whereas the Bible is an account of God’s dealings with the Israelites in the old world, The Book of Mormon is an account of God’s dealings with the peoples who inhabited the ancient Americas. The primary group within the narrative is the Nephite People. The Nephites, like their Israelite brothers in the old world, went through cycles of righteousness, apostasy, wickedness, war, and internal strife. The Book of Mormon is unique among holy books in that it devotes much time and space to exposing Satanic conspiracy. The prophets who recorded the histories of their people warned of “secret combinations,” or, in more modern language, “conspiracies.”

The most formidable and dangerous of the secret societies warned about by these ancient holy men was the Gadianton Robbers. The Gadiantons formed a murder cult. The Gadianton Robbers originated in about 52 B.C. in the aftermath of a tumultuous election in which their preferred candidate not only lost, but was arrested and executed for his attempt to stir up a rebellion. These seething conspirators sent a man to murder the newly elected chief judge over the Nephite nation. After the deed was done, they swore blasphemous oaths in the name of God to conceal this wickedness. This small, clandestine clique quickly morphed into an intimidating secret society hell bent on capturing the reins of government.

Over time, after numerous assassinations of elected leaders and after corrupting the morals of the Nephite People, the Gadianton secret society came to dominate the Nephite government. In the end, this sect of Gadiantons led to the complete destruction and extermination of the Nephite People. The Book of Mormon informs us that the Gadianton Robbers followed the same pattern of even older secret organizations. The record attests that the Devil is the author of these conspiracies; they are not man-made. The record also warned its future readers – you and I – that a similar “secret combination” would exist in the last days which would seek to destroy the Freedom of the world. Or, as the divine account states:

“For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies” (Ether 8:25).

Today, as The Book of Mormon foretold centuries ago, we do have a Satanic secret combination – a colossal conspiracy – attempting to overthrow the Liberty of the world and subjugate mankind under the iron yoke of bondage. Modern prophets of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – as well as modern scholars of many backgrounds and faiths – have identified this plague of the nations as the communist conspiracy.

The stated goal of communism is world revolution. Communism has spread farther and faster than any ideology in world history. More people have been murdered, enslaved, plundered, and abused under communism than under any other system, or combination of systems, in all of recorded history. Over 100 million people have been directly murdered by the communists and tens of millions more have lost their lives in wars instigated by communist agents and their sympathizers. Truly, no greater threat exists than communism.

Communism is not an atheistic dogma. Rather, as I devote much time discussing in Red Gadiantons, a Luciferian or Satanic conspiracy. While communism is “officially” atheist, its chief leaders have been Satanists. They have been the high priests of Satan’s church. Adam Weishaupt, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and other arch-communists have been devotees of the Adversary. They serve and worship him; he is their god, their master, their enabler. Like the Gadianton Robbers of old, modern communists are bound together with blasphemous oaths invented and administered personally by Satan.

Contrary to the propaganda, communism is not dead. The Soviet Union faked its “collapse” and is, under the guise of “democracy,” advancing at an alarming pace worldwide. Whether we realize it or not, mankind is currently at war with this anti-Christ philosophy. Our Freedom, culture, Constitution, religion, and way of life are at stake.

In a war, deception is key. To win, the enemy employs every tactic to deceive and mislead us. They have gone so far as to play “dead” and feign weakness – a tactic the ancient Chinese strategist Sun Tzu recommended. To defeat the enemy, then, we must see through the red fog of lies and recognize the enemy for who and what he is. Unless we correctly identify the enemy, we have no hope of countering his attacks.

We must recognize that the world’s chief enemy is communism. We must recognize that communism rarely uses its own name, but operates through front movements. The Fabian Socialist movement was created by communists, as were the feminist movement, environmentalist movement, the LGBT movement, so-called “Islamic” terrorism, and many others. We must recognize that communism is inherently evil and that it was founded by Satan. We must recognized that communism is a Satanic conspiracy designed to subjugate humanity and consolidate the nations under a one-world communist government crowned with a one-world Luciferian religion.

Unless we recognize that this battle is not merely political or economic, but, rather, is spiritual and religious, we have no hope of survival. Our situation is awful. We are losing this war. However, truth always prevails in the end. Red Gadiantons is an injection of truth into the confused mass of lies swirling around us. Red Gadiantons identifies the Satanic communists as the “man behind the curtain.” It explains why and how communism is a Luciferian conspiracy serving the Devil’s purposes. And it calls upon people everywhere to take the sword of the Spirit and fight against this international plot aimed at the destruction of our faith, families, and Freedom.

I urge everyone – especially my fellow Latter-day Saints – to purchase a copy of Red Gadiantons: What the Prophets Have Taught about the Communist Secret Combination that Threatens Mankind so that he can arm himself with the knowledge necessary to safeguard his family and help save the Republic. Because it fuses LDS teachings with secular research – including the testimonies of a host of Soviet defectors who warned the West in clear terms – Red Gadiantons is a fairly unique book that has a powerful potential to open eyes, touch hearts, and inspire its readers with the light of truth.

I close with an excerpt from pages 113-116 of Red Gadiantons:

“If the evil “church” we are seeking to identify is not actually a church, but a political system, which one is it? Perhaps many systems could qualify. For instance, it was the arm of government inspired by demonic priests that crucified the Savior. It was the arm of government, again motivated by evil men of religion, which persecuted and killed the original apostles. It was the acquiescence of Governor Ford that led to the murder of the Prophet Joseph Smith in Carthage Jail at the hands of an organized mob. And so the story has gone for millennia with government being used by men beholden to Satan to crush the Lord’s work and enslave mankind.

“It is a poignant observation that government is the only organization which all men and women belong to regardless of their religious creed, race, gender, principles, etc. Government has dominion over all people irrespective of their point on the compass. This organ, then, is the chief organ through which Satan reaches all men. It is no wonder the scriptures attest that secret combinations always attempted to take command of the reins of government above all else. And today, Satan’s secret combination seeks to not only take over individual governments, but all governments on an international scale.

“If Elder Andersen is correct and “the great and abominable church of the devil” and the secret combination foreseen by Moroni are “one and the same in purpose and method,” then what does that mean for identifying this entity? The answer is obvious: If the Devil’s church and his secret combinations are the same, then his “church” is communism, because communism has been identified by the Church as a Gadianton-style secret combination which constitutes the “greatest satanical threat” to mankind.

“Quoting from Elder Andersen again, we read:

““[I]f Satan has a church on earth today it cannot be other than corrupted government or “domination by the state.” If there is a secret combination among us which is seeking “to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries” as Moroni prophesied, then it has to be the great Communist conspiracy and the movement to impose socialism world-wide. The “greatest Satanical threat on the face of the earth” and that “church which is most abominable above all other churches” must be one and the same organization.”

“The logic is simple, yet airtight. Communism must be the Devil’s church, or, at very least, its predominant branch. If the prophets can be trusted, and I testify their words are the words of our Master, then communism is the greatest evil in the world – the same distinction given in the scriptures for Satan’s abominable church.

“If the Devil’s church wields political as well as ecclesiastical authority, it is well to highlight the fact that communism is the absolute worst form of government ever invented. No other organization has been as destructive of God-given rights as has communism. More people have been butchered, enslaved, raped, and plundered by communism than by any other political ideology. The comparisons aren’t even close. For instance, the fairly minimal crimes of fascism do not even compare. They aren’t in the same ballpark. Communism is in a class all its own. Its atrocities are on an unparalleled scale, boggle the mind, and shock the senses. A minimum of 100 million humans have been massacred by the Bolsheviks, with billions more suffering enslavement.

“Unlike most other political ideologies that are confined to an individual country or region, communism is inherently international. Communism seeks to impose itself on the whole of mankind. This is to be expected if, as we have explained, communism is Lucifer’s priestcraft. Did not Nephi prophesy that the great and abominable church would have “dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people” (1 Nephi 14:11)? . . . .

“The communist virus is spread through violent revolution. Blood, carnage, and confusion are its fertilizers. Satan’s threat to use the armies of the earth to reign with blood and horror has come to pass. It is only fitting that his handcrafted ideology would be transmitted at the barrel of a gun. The spirit of communism is the spirit of the Destroyer.”
