Historic Parallelism in The Book of Mormon


Our nation has a history, which parallels the account of The Book of Mormon. This is not a happenstance or mere coincidence. It is by design. The Lord designed this parallelism into The Book of Mormon.

The Lord showed to His prophets, Mormon and Moroni, the events that would take place in our days. (See Mormon chapter 8 especially verses 34-35.) The Lord then instructed them to take the records of their people, the Nephites, and to assemble the account in such a way as to show us, in the latter days, by parallelism, the kind of events and problems, which will take place among us.

The parallelism starts in Mosiah and concludes in 4 Nephi. We are presently in 3 Nephi 1.

As we are told to liken the scriptures unto ourselves, we would find:
1. We are the Nephites.
2. A free society is established, without kings.
3. The society starts off with righteous men leading them.
4. Antichrists (Korihor and Nehor) come among the Nephites and teach false ideas, which are contrary to the gospel.
5. In contrast, Alma discovers that preaching the gospel had a more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword. (Alma 31:5)
6. Among those, who adhere to these false teachings, are some affluent individuals. (Amlicites, and later, Zoramites) These individuals come to believe, that they are better than the Nephites at large. In particular, they believe, that they are better than the members of the Lord's church.
7. The disciples of the antichrists believe, that it is their right to be rulers over everyone else. They begin to study to destroy the freedom of the people. “Unrighteous lawyers and judges lay the foundation of the destruction of the people.”
7. They seek to establish themselves as kings, to destroy the freedom of the Nephites, and to destroy the Lord's church. They become known as the kingmen.
8. Being the weaker part of the Nephites and unable to obtain their objectives on their own power; the kingmen enter into agreements with the Lamanites and stir up the Lamanites to battle against the Nephites, with the agreement, that after the Nephites are defeated, the kingmen would be placed in power over the Nephites.
9. The kingmen establish secret combinations. They deceive the Nephites into supporting them in government. They even commit murders in order to gain power in government. They become known as the Gadianton robbers.
10. They even fight among themselves for control of government.
11. The prophets (Nephi, Lehi, Moroniha, Samuel the Lamanite, and others) call upon the Nephites to repent of supporting the Gadianton robbers.
12. The Nephites, for the most part, ignore the prophets.
13. The Gadianton robbers gain exclusive control of the Nephite government.
14. The Gadianton robbers seek to destroy the church and those, who oppose the Gadianton robbers. (3 Nephi 1)
15. Many desent from the Nephites and join the Gadianton robbers.
16. The Gadianton robbers become so strong, that they demand the surrender of the Nephites.
17. The Gadianton robbers deceitfully invite the righteous Nephites to "yield yourselves up unto us, and unite with us and become acquainted with our secret works, and become our brethren that ye may be like unto us - not our slaves, but our brethren and partners of all our substance." (a lovely Marxist statement)
18. The righteous are commanded to gather all of their substance, except their lands, and meet together where they will unite against the Gadianton robbers.
19. The Gadianton robbers are defeated.
20. The Nephites begin to rebuild the secret combinations of the Gadianton robbers.
21. The Lord comes and destroys the Gadianton robbers and all who do wickedly.

Antichrists, Korihor and Nehor, come among the people and teach ideas, which are contrary to the gospel.
Here are some of the latter-day antichrists, some of their teachings and the consequences of their philosophies.

Voltaire – Advocated the destruction of all religions and all nations.

As Abbé Augustin Barruel documented in his invaluable study Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism, the intellectual base for this movement was laid in the mid-18th century by Voltaire, Rousseau, Diderot, and other members of the Paris Academy. This fraternity, which sought the destruction of Christian-style civilization, referred to itself grandly as the “Philosophes.”

Voltaire’s influence over King Frederick of Prussia and the publication of Diderot’s Encyclopédie, beginning in 1751, testified of the Philosophes’ early success. The conspirators hoped that the Encyclopédie would become a standard reference source wherein every literate person would seek knowledge on all subjects and thus receive propaganda against civil order and the Christian religion. Its publication caused the influence of this group to grow rapidly.

Voltaire bore an implacable hatred of all religions, of all monarchs, and of all morality derived from religious belief. He was obsessed with a fiendish desire for the total destruction of all three. He ended all his letters with the battle cry, “Let us crush the wretch! Crush the wretch!” The “wretch” to whom he referred, of course, is Christ and His Church. Christians, said Voltaire, are “beings exceedingly injurious, fanatics, thieves, dupes, imposters … enemies of the human race.” In the war against Christianity, according to Voltaire, “It is necessary to lie like a devil, not timidly and for a time, but boldly and always.” …

Robespierre, who had presided over much of the Terror, advocated the systematic extermination of 15 million Frenchmen so that the remaining food supplies would be adequate. Although this prototype ecological “depopulation” program was not fully implemented, the Terror did extinguish the lives of at least 300,000 Frenchmen — 297,000 of whom were members of the middle and lower agricultural and working classes. As always, the “people’s revolution” primarily victimized its alleged beneficiaries. - A Primer on the Illuminati, by William H. McIlhany


Thomas Robert Malthus – Suggested the world was over-populated and that population growth would out-pace availability of natural resources. Advocated world population reduction programs. This militates against the Lord's word, that there is "enough and to spare". It ignores the Heavenly inspiration given to man (as the need occurs) as he labors to conquer a conundrum, which enables man to resolve previously unsolvable problems. Advances in technology come through this means. This false philosophy also works in a direction to frustrate the Lord's plan to bring children into this world, so that they may work out their salvation. It contradicts revealed truth found in D&C 104:17, which says: "For the earth is full, and there is enough and to spare; yea, I prepared all things, and have given unto the children of men to be agents unto themselves." The Lord knows the number of His children and has designed our habitation to meet their needs.

Horace Mann – Socialist and atheist advocate of mandatory public education in order to indoctrinate children against religion and freedom, and towards socialism and atheism.
“What the church has been for medieval man, the public school must become for democratic and rational man. God will be replaced by the concept of the public good. The common (public) schools shall create a more far-seeing intelligence and a pure morality than has ever existed among communities of men.”
Note: That would be “a pure morality” in the socialist sense. The socialist sense envisions taking the property of others by force of government and eliminating those, who oppose them, by military conquest. Of course, this is all done “for the public good”, “to help the poor”, “to help the children”, and to be charitable (with other people’s property).

Karl Marx – The Illuminati (a.k.a. “The League of Just Men”) paid Karl Marx to write Das Kapital, which advocated Government control of property, education, etc. (Naturally, those who control the government then control everything and everyone else.) “Democracy is the road to socialism.” (The Illuminati control the Communist Party as well as much of capitalist societies’ governments, business, and organizations.)
“The classes and the races too weak to master the new conditions of life must give way … They must perish in the Revolutionary Holocaust.” Karl Marx


Charles Darwin – Took his atheist grandfather’s idea of evolution as an explanation for how life came about in the absence of God, and created a framework of evidence to support the idea. Although the models for understanding biochemistry, physical chemistry, physics, and cellular biology have changed tremendously since 1848 (when Darwin published Origin of the Species) the model for explaining how life might have developed without the involvement of God has not substantially changed. Thus the laws of thermodynamics are not addressed when evolution is presented. The consequence – the destruction in society of a fundamental belief in God, without which one cannot name the source of man’s rights, nor to whom man is accountable. This makes it easy to destroy the freedom of a society, when that society knows not who to look to for aid in freedom’s cause.
Aldous Huxley said, “I suppose, that the reason we leapt, as it were, at Origins (of the Species), was that the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores.” In other words, the idea of the existence of God interfered with man’s desires to be carnal, sensual, and devilish without being held accountable.


Francis Galton – Advocate of eugenics and social Darwinism. Encouraged interbreeding of “the elite”. Advocated elimination of inferior races and people.


Hegel – Father of moral relativism and dialectics. (e.g. thesis, antithesis, and synthesis.) Create a problem. Create a false opposition to the problem, in order to spread the conflict. Propose a solution to the problem, which doesn’t solve the problem, but which give you more power, while it creates even more problems. Repeat the pattern.


Immanuel Kant – legal philosopher, taught that a man only becomes entitled the rights of a person in the legal sense if and only if he is accepted within the society. Consequence – when Germans accepted this idea, Hitler was free to confiscate the property and murder those in Germany and Europe, whom he declared to be undesirable.

Nietzsche – “If there is no God, then all things are permissible.” “God is dead.” If there is no God, there is no moral accountability. If so, then you can do any manner of wickedness.

Vladimir Ilexis Ulanov (Lenin) - “Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism.” “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.” “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.” “To rely upon conviction, devotion, and other excellent spiritual qualities; that is not to be taken seriously in politics.” “The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” – “Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.” “Democracy is indispensable to socialism.”

John Dewey –

John Maynard Keynes – “Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens ... Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of over-turning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” (Economic Consequences of the Peace, pp. 235, 236, [1920]) Advocated the destruction of property rights (capitalism) by deficit financing, debauching of currency (removal of precious metal backing of paper currency, then printing excess currency, thus diluting its value). Taught that prosperity could be obtained through government borrowing and spending. Advocated a common world currency controlled by an international body, which, if implemented, would remove control of economic matters from the hands of the people.

John Goodlad – Socialist educational philosopher and designer of public educational programs, which indoctrinate children in socialism and amorality.
“Parents do not own their children. They have no ‘natural right’ to control their education fully.”
“Most youth still hold the same values of their parents…if we do not alter this pattern, if we don’t resocialize, our system will decay.”
“A standardized curriculum of basic skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic cannot prepare people to participate in a democracy. Enlightened social engineering is required to face situations that demand global action now.”
“The state we should strive for is better described in Deweyan terms as a social democracy.”(Def. Democratic welfare state)
“The curriculum of the future 'will be what one might call the humanistic curriculum.'”
(Constitution Presentation 9-18-10, by Oak Norton & Susie Schnell)

B. F. Skinner –

Stalin -

Adloph Hitler – Combined the teachings of Voltaire, Marx, Darwin, Malthus, Huxley, Galton, Hegel, Kant, Nietzsche in creating his National Socialist German Workers Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, NSDAP, Nazi). Hitler's extreme hatred of morally based religion; his preoccupation with the occult; his Marxist policies; his devious mechanisms; his views on eugenics and ethnic cleansing; his amoral view of exterminating any, who did not fit his view of the superior race; all of these practices were legitimized by the antichrist philosophers Hitler followed.

Joseph Goebbels (Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda) – “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

“Hermann Goering, founder of the Gestapo, explained the strategy:
Why, of course, the people don’t want war.... Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship....

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country. “
Why Germans Supported Hitler, by Jacob G. Hornberger.
__
Margaret Sanger – Founder of Planned Parenthood. Financed by Rockefellers. Friend and admirer of Adolph Hitler. Enthusiast of eugenics. Advocate of sterilization and population control of “inferior races”.

Bernard Shaw – “I appeal to the chemists to discover a humane gas that will kill instantly and painlessly. Deadly by all means, but humane not cruel.”

Mao -

Sigmund Freud - Taught that insanity was the result of restrained libido. Encouraged unrestrained sexual gratification as a requirement to a sound mind.

Alfred Kinsey – Produced fraudulent study of sex using a selection of pederasts, criminals, prostitutes, and homosexuals and submitted it to the public indicating that the sexual habits of such deviants was typical of the normal male and female. By selecting the subjects of the study in such a manner so as to load the study with deviants, the results of the study were pre-determined and were deliberately skewed by being bulked up with deviant results. Then, the study was present as if it had been a survey of normal people. Thus, it was suggested that it was normal for 10% of the male population to be homosexual, and that child molestation was healthy and beneficial to the child. The consequence has been an increase in acceptance of such deviant behavior in society.

Hugh Hefner – Advocated “free sex” (unrestrained licentiousness).

Undermining of one's morality undermines one's spiritual connection with Heavenly Father; one's expectation, that Heavenly Father will support them through life's difficulties; one's understanding of the Source of one's rights, blessings, and freedom.



Rising from the teachings of the antichrists are the kingmen, those of wealth and nobility, who are the governing officials. These aspire to overthrow the free government and establish themselves as kings and rulers, with whom they have close affiliation and may be benefited thereby.

Rising from the kingmen are Kishkumen, Gadianton, and the Gadianton robbers. These gain control of the Nephite government by seducing the people to believe their ideas, thus gaining the support of the people. They collaborate with the Gadianton Robbers outside the Nephite government until they are so strong and confident of victory over the Nephites, that they boldly threaten the destruction of the Nephites, if the Nephites do not surrender.

W. Cleon Skousen wrote about these Gadianton robbers and kingmen in his book, “The Naked Capitalist”. Likewise, Ezra Taft Benson wrote about them in his book, “An Enemy Hath Done This”.

"...if they become alerted and informed, these parents can help expose the deceptions of men like Sigmund Freud, Charles Darwin, John Dewey (our district is following a Dewey scholar named John Goodlad), John Keynes and others. There are much worse things today that can happen to a child than not getting a full education. In fact, some of the worst things have happened to our children while attending colleges led by administrators who wink at subversion and amorality. Said Karl G. Maeser, "I would rather have my child exposed to smallpox, typhus fever, cholera or other malignant and deadly diseases than to the degrading influence of a corrupt teacher." (The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 307.)

As Harold B. Lee said,
“One of the greatest threats to the work of the Lord today comes from false educational ideas. There is a growing tendency of teachers within and without the church to make academic interpretations of gospel teachings - to read, as a prophet leader has said, 'by the lamp of their own conceit.' Unfortunately, much in the sciences, the arts, politics and the entertainment field, as has been well said by an eminent scholar, 'all dominated by this humanistic approach which ignores God and his word as revealed through the prophets.' This kind of worldly system apparently hopes to draw men away from God by making man the 'measure of all things' as some worldly philosophers have said. (Conference Report 10/68 p. 59.)

All governments of the world are controlled by these secret combinations. Although they fight among themselves for ultimate control; they work together toward destroying our freedom and making us subject to one super-government, under their control: the New World Order, as they call it. Satan is the head of this secret combination.

Their deceitful philosophies and programs reach down to the local government.

We are called upon to repent, to learn the gospel, apply it in our lives, and to cease supporting the secret combinations. (Ether 8:20-26)

The present administration, like those before, is working to destroy our freedom. But their goal is almost achieved, so things are moving rapidly and dramatically. It seems to me, that so little time remains, that they do not fear being vote out of office in the upcoming election. They, therefore, act boldly in opposition to the overwhelming majority of the people. Even poll numbers greater than 80% in opposition to their programs does not constrain them.

Prophetically, all nations of the world will be destroyed. All will be bankrupted. Then comes World War III. The Gadianton robbers want to reduce the world population to less than 1 billion. They intend to used war, famine, and disease to achieve this.

The Lord will still win. We would be wise to follow His counsel. The Lord will select and prepare a small, but obedient army (as in Judges 7), who will exercise the mighty and sacred powers of the Melchizedek Priesthood as set forth in JST Genesis 14: 30-31.
The rest of the story ...



Leave it to me to build up to the most distressing part of the story and leave it there, unfinished. My apologies.

After the point when the Gadianton robbers achieve such strength that their victory over the righteous Nephites is a forgone conclusion ... that part you need to read for yourself. After all, everyone hates when I tell the conclusion to a book or movie.

Here are the parts to read:

In the Americas:

http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/zech/14?lang=eng verses 3 through 5

http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/zech/13?lang=eng verse 6

http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/zech/14?lang=eng verses 6 through 15

http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/mal/4?lang=eng verses 1 through 3

http://www.lds.org/scriptures/ot/zech/14?lang=eng verses 16 through 21

Then, comes the millennium, the building of Zion, the spreading of the gospel, a world without evil living in peace, because the people cannot be stirred up to wars (as Satan and the Gadianton robbers have done for thousands of years), and the consequent happiness and prosperity.

My favorite scripture:
Listen to him who is the advocate with the Father, who is pleading your cause before him— Saying: Father, behold the sufferings and death of him who did no sin, in whom thou wast well pleased; behold the blood of thy Son which was shed, the blood of him whom thou gavest that thyself might be glorified; Wherefore, Father, spare these my brethren that believe on my name, that they may come unto me and have everlasting life.

D&C 45:3-5
 
What this is all about is the Plan of Salvation, which the Lord established before this world was ever formed. If we had a sufficiently detailed record of history, we could document that what we are facing today is part of one continuous plan from the days of Adam. Sadly, there are gaps in the historical record. Nevertheless, there is sufficient information, that we can trace it back for thousands of years.

We are facing the grand climax of earth's history: the events preparatory to the Lord's Second Coming and His triumphal return. Satan's plan is to stop the Lord's plan. There is one means by which Satan can do this and that is to kill off everyone so that the Plan of Salvation cannot be continued. Essential to Satan's plan is to entice corrupt individuals to carry out his plan. Satan entices those to become as evil as he is. He entices them with wealth and power.
5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
(Luke 4:5-7)
Now, this is where these corrupt individuals become our parallel to the "Gadianton robbers".

In The Book of Mormon, the account contains this historic parallelism. The Lord showed to the last prophets of the Nephite civilization the events of our days. The Lord then told them to go through their historical records, of which they had hundreds of volumes accumulated covering the period mainly from 600 B.C. to 400 A.D. Those prophets, Mormon and his son, Moroni, were to abridge those historical records, so that the abridged account paralleled the events they were shown would occur in our times.

Now, this is a type of composition, that only the Lord can do! (Because it requires knowing the events before they happen.)

The result is The Book of Mormon, which the Lord revealed in time for us to be warned before He returns. If He had not sent these things forth, we would have been unprepared when He returns.

In this parallelism, the "elite" of the Nephite society reject the gospel. They do not believe in sin. They are taught by their false prophets (or teachers of a false concept of salvation), that whatever they do is no sin, that they profit according to their wisdom, and whatever they do is no crime. (Now, what kind of wickedness would such teachings incite in a society that believed those ideas?) The wealthy and "elite" leaders of the Nephite society are taught that it is their right to rule over the people. So, they begin working to destroy the freedom and the religion of that society. (This is exactly what the modern day "elites" have done.) They work to establish themselves as kings over the people. Those who oppose the "king-men" are called "freemen".

As the Nephite people become corrupted by the influence of the secret works of the kingmen, they support the kingmen and give them control over the Nephite government. (The same as we have done throughout every nation in the world.) One of the kingmen is named "Gadianton". We don't have much information about him, but he was a notorious leader at one time. His followers were known as Gadianton robbers. Thus, the term.

Ultimately, the Gadianton robbers become so powerful, that they demand the surrender of the Nephite people. It is at that time, that the prophet leader calls for all of the righteous Nephites to gather together with all of their provisions, to fortify themselves against the Gadianton robbers, and to repent and call upon the Lord to save them. (We are approaching this point in the historic parallelism.)

We learn that the Gadianton robbers essentially want the Nephites to surrender all that they possess to the Gadianton robbers. They offer false promises that they will not make slaves of the surrendering Nephites, but share everything equally. (The false promise of socialism. The leaders always control the wealth to their own benefit, while the common people starve.)

Now, as for the modern day Gadianton robbers: Their plans are to reduce the world population by 90 to 95% by about 2050. I haven't heard any of them volunteering to get off the planet. So, that means that they have slated a lot of us for elimination. Their tools are war, famine, and disease.

But, the story gets better. The Lord is only allowing the wicked to prove how wicked and murderous they are. The Lord is also proving how righteous the righteous choose to be, by allowing them to work to help others and to oppose the plans of the wicked.

That is why we are here.

In the Lord's plan, we get to choose who we want to be like. By our choices, we either become like Satan or like our Savior. By this process, we may become even like Jesus.

Bob
