Secrets of The Melbourne Man: Satan’s Plan of Spiritual Communism Revealed to A Mormon Missionary

Secrets of The Melbourne Man: Satan's Plan of Spiritual Communism Revealed to A Mormon Missionaryby Marion Albert Law

In 1947, I was a 21-year-old missionary Elder, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My assignment was in Melbourne, Australia. My companion and I were going door-to-door in a quaint little section of the city. The lanes were narrow and wandered around, with no sense of plan at all.

Missionaries are not supposed to leave their companions for any reason. But here in this compact area, we decided to each take a side of the lane. Opportunities to teach anyone were so rare that we thought it wise to cover as much territory as possible. If a friendly reaction was received by one of us, the other would cross the street to share in the visit. Usually, we could see each other every minute and could almost touch hands across the lane. So the plan was working well, as we doubled our tracting efficiency.

At one door, a man answered and said yes, he would like to hear more about our beliefs. I looked for my companion, but he had disappeared. So I tried to stall until the Elder came back. He had obviously gone around one of the numerous meanderings and should reappear at any moment. I explained that my companion would be back in a minute or two. (Much later, I discovered that around the corner was a “milk bar”, where he had gone for a milk shake while he waited for me. The Elder assumed that since I was right behind him, I would soon show up there.)

After a few more minutes, the man became impatient and said, “I don’t talk standing in the lane. If you’re not interested, never mind.”

So I said, “Okay, I’ll come in.” My intention was to visit briefly, make an appointment, and return with my wandering companion.

As I began to explain our purpose, he interrupted, “Mr. Law, we have a better plan.” So I asked about his “better plan”.

The Melbourne man, as I call him, described how Plato, an ancient Greek philosopher, had designed a different kind of society. This man’s plan would follow similar lines. There would be three classes of people: the leaders, the workers, and the teachers. The teachers would be trained to condition a sinless society (“…as you call sin…”, he said) – there would be no hate, no greed, no jealousy, no envy, no lust, no malice – no sin. The workers would not be envious of the leaders. The leaders would not oppress the workers. The teachers would condition each class to willingly accept their assigned role in this “perfect” society.

The Melbourne man further described how breeders would be chosen, based on superior intelligence, physical perfection and longevity genes. Children would be taken from their mothers at birth and placed in communal nurseries, and through various tests, their classes would be determined. They would then receive specialized conditioning for that particular class. All defective babies had to be eliminated. The total number of births would need to be controlled to prevent overpopulation and depletion of natural resources. By this selective breeding, a master race of geniuses could be created.

Worker-scientists were assigned to research life extension techniques until future generations could “live forever”. Through space research, they would reach out into the universe to develop planets hospitable to human life. This perfect society then spreads throughout space in a never-ending cycle.

I asked, “How will you condition them?” He then explained, in detail, the basic conditioning tools. They included diet, drugs, music, movies, education, etc.

He described how diet (the basic elements of life, food and water) could be a major desensitizing and conditioning instrument. The Melbourne man said that by using additives and special formulas, by changing plants and animals, the diet of the people leaves them submissive and easily controlled.

When that man told me that the materials, systems and procedures were already in place in 1947, my farm-boy mentality refused to accept it. Especially when he explained drug addiction. He outlined how drug addiction changes personalities, making them so dependent that they will agree to anything to satisfy their needs. I protested that people will not allow themselves to be manipulated that way. He just laughed and said, “Mr. Law, you’re such a child. Wait and see.”

I did not see how music could be used. The man then described “melodic dissonance” for me, in detail. He told of the conditioning experiments of the Russian scientist Pavlov in communist Russia, using dogs and metronomes. Pavlov found that he could condition a dog to salivate when a metronome beat at 60 beats per minute. Then he learned that he could condition the same dog to never produce saliva when the metronome beat at 120 beats per minute.

In another experiment with the same dog, Pavlov had both metronomes beating at the same time, one at 60 beats, the other at 120 beats per minute. The conditioned dog was required to do two totally opposite functions at the same time. This produced nervous shock, and the dog collapsed, unconscious.

Next, with the same dog, Pavlov had the 60-beat metronome suddenly jump to 120 beats per minute. At the same instant, the 120-beat metronome dropped to 60 beats per minute. This produced a melodic dissonance. When the metronomes were switched back and forth rapidly, the dog became so distressed that it died. In communist Russia, these experiments were then extended to humans, with similar results.

Using variations of this melodic dissonance, a new music form was created. Musical scores and lyrics were developed. A team of musicians, called “the Beatles”, was trained in Europe and introduced to America on the popular Ed Sullivan Talent Show, on national television. They were an instant hit, and all other forms of music became “old-fashioned”.

I could not understand such a phenomenon in 1947. But years later, when I first heard “rock & roll”, everything flashed back to 1947; I realized that the Australian did know that it would be a powerful tool for their conditioning plan.

The Melbourne man said they had already begun “behavior modification conditioning” in government schools, using audio-visual programs. When they introduce their messages, beginning in preschool, the results are intense and permanent.

A monster was emerging, that I found sinister and all-controlling. I could not believe what I was hearing. But over and over, he said, “Wait and see. You will live to see our perfect plan in full operation. When we control all the conditioning processes, everything will fall neatly into place.”

I protested that they were forcing their will and control on people, taking away freedom of choice. His answer was, “No, they can still choose, but they will always choose exactly what they are conditioned to choose.”

“But that’s not right!” He laughed at my evident simplicity.

So I protested again, “But God won’t allow it.”

“Why not? How can a just God – there is no such being – keep these sinless souls out of heaven? That’s what you believe, isn’t it, Mr. Law?”

So he began a different tactic. “Who do you love, Mr. Law? You certainly don’t love the Australian people.”

“Oh yes, I do, that’s why I came on a mission.”

“So, how many have you saved?”

This was a hard mission. Few and far between were our welcomes. Fewer were our converts. I admitted grudgingly, “Not many.”

“And,” he said, “all the rest are consigned to hell.”

“Oh no, there are three degrees of glory, and…”

“We know all about your three degrees of glory. It means that many are called to be Mormons, but few are chosen to be gods. We know all about your church. We control every church in the world, except yours, and we will infiltrate that.”

“Mr. Law, you don’t love anybody, do you?”

“I love my mother.”

“No, you don’t. Under your plan, she can either choose to go to hell, or make a mistake and fall through the cracks into hell. If you really loved your mother, you’d be eager to guarantee that she would go to heaven. With our plan, it is guaranteed. In fact, no one will he lost; they will all go to heaven. Of course, we don’t believe in heaven or hell, anyway. But if you really love your fellow man, our plan is the only way to show it.”

I said, “I think I’ve heard this plan before.”

“Where could you have heard it?”

“It must have been in the Council in Heaven, before I was born.” He just laughed.

I was reeling under his attack, but I could not leave. There were no chains on me. But I felt as if I was bound, hand and foot, to the chair – as though I was paralyzed. So I asked, “Who are you? What do you call this plan?”

“I am one of three members of the central planning committee of the communist party for Australia.”

I said, “I’ve heard of communism.” But I knew very little about it.

The Melbourne man told me that the world understood economic, and political, and military communism. But the plan he was outlining to me, he called “spiritual communism”, that would evolve into a worldwide government. He said they were using the current governments until they controlled the world. Then those political, economic, and military leaders would need to be eliminated because they are violent men. Then the new world order would take over.

I asked how they could make the plan work, when there are so many people who are not prepared to accept it. He said, “We will have to annihilate all who cannot be conditioned to be either a worker or a teacher.”

“How many will you kill?”

“Hundreds of millions, maybe even you and me.”

“But that is murder.”

“That is a Christian term that has no meaning. It is really a part of cleansing. We need to reduce the population to a more manageable size, anyway. Only the inner corps of the elite leaders know about the plan. The present communist leaders don’t know it. Spiritual communism is not written or recorded anywhere. It is a secret plan.”

“Then why did you tell me?”

He was a bit perplexed, but he had an answer. “I don’t know. But we are looking for zealous young men who will join this work to help bring about this heaven on earth. Think about it, not one soul will be lost.”

I was not ready to give up yet. “You’ll never take over the world!”

He answered, “Mr. Law, we now control two-thirds of all world governments, politically or militarily or economically. Only the United States of America remains as the last major hurdle to world domination.”

So I boldly declared, “You’ll never take over the United States!”

But he said, “Mr. Law, let me tell you how it is!” He said they controlled all major conditioning instruments in America now: the entertainment industry, the news media, the education system, the courts, the financial system, political parties. Where they don’t have full control, they have infiltrated and have embedded their agents into all important decision-making bodies. He said they control every agency that affects daily living in America. Their agents were everywhere, doing their jobs.

But since I was a high school graduate, twelve years in an education system, I thought that made me an expert in education. Quite triumphantly, I said, “You don’t control the education system.”

Again, “Mr. Law, let me tell you how it is! When you get home, examine any textbook in any school, at any level, from preschool to university graduate school. You will find no mention of Jesus Christ or God or His plan. But you will find our plan being taught at every level. It’s written into every textbook.”

How right he was. I have spent almost 40 years of my life in education, as a teacher and an administrator, in public and private school systems. Satan’s plan is there; God’s plan is forbidden by law. God has even been declared unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court.

I asked when would all this take effect, and his spiritual plan be put into operation. He said, “We have a progressive agenda. We are prepared to take two steps forward, one step back, two forward, one back, until it is time. The American people won’t even know it is happening. When it is favorable, then everything will move swiftly to the purging, or cleansing stage. People will be stunned into immobility. We won’t want a time lag between take-over and full operation of our spiritual phase.”

Then he asked, “What do you think? Are you ready to join our forces?”

I fell back to the only sure ground I knew. “I believe in God, our Heavenly Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ. It’s their plan that I will follow.”

The Melbourne man became violently angry and shouted, “There are no such beings! They are myths created to enslave the minds of men. They don’t exist!”

I answered simply, “But I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost fill me with fire from the top of my head to the soles of my feet, and I have heard the voice of God testify to me that Jesus Christ is His Son. His plan is the truth, and that is what I teach.”

He lunged across the room and attacked me with his fists. Suddenly, I was free. I could move, and I ran outside into the lane. I found my companion wandering around, desperately looking for me. He didn’t dare leave, but had kept on searching for me. He had to help me on and off the tram. I was so exhausted that I was unable to get out of bed for a couple of days.

Elder Matthew Cowley, of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles, was President of all the Pacific missions. He visited us often in Australia. In my interview with him, shortly after this experience, he sensed that something was disturbing me. He asked if I would like to tell him what was wrong.

So I outlined the Melbourne man’s spiritual communism to him. Elder Cowley told me why the man told me the plan. Now that I had been permitted to hear Satan’s plan, in detail, I could choose which I would follow, Satan or Christ.

Twenty-five years after this event, I was in Elder Ezra Taft Benson’s office and told him the account. He said that he had never heard Satan’s plan in this life. But he recognized the details that Satan used to persuade one-third of our brothers and sisters to follow him in the pre-existence. They were willing to trade their agency to choose, for Satan’s guaranteed salvation. Now, I could choose again which I would follow, Christ’s plan of agency, or Satan’s plan of total control. After sixty-three years, my choice is more firmly anchored than ever before.

I have watched spiritual communism eat its ghastly way into every country and into every government, including our own. It is everywhere. All 10 points of Karl Marx’s communist manifesto have been quietly incorporated into American life. They have been accepted as “social progress”.

The Book of Mormon tells how secret combinations destroyed two great civilizations, the Jaredites and the Nephites. The Prophet Moroni warns us:

“Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you.” Ether 8:24

Are we awake? Evidences of the secret combination – spiritual communism – are everywhere. What can we do about it? When the Jaredites and the Nephites followed the Prophets, they were protected. When they rejected the Prophets, they were destroyed. My only escape from the Melbourne man was my witness of Jesus Christ.

The Prophet Nephi warned his people:

“…nothing can save this people save it be repentance and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ…Yea, how long will ye suffer yourselves to be led by foolish and blind guides?…” Helaman 13:6, 29

There is a wonderful lesson to be learned from the Jaredites and the Nephites. There is safety in following the Prophets. I encourage all of us to follow the temporal and spiritual counsel of the latter-day Prophets, Seers and Revelators!

    I find this story fascinating! And it’s very unfortunate that this “economic, and political, and military communism” as well as “spiritual communism” has taken root as much as it has all over the world, even in America.

  2. Jules Allred says:

    This is all so frighteningly familiar! It’s amazing how everything going on in the world today, literally epitomizes Satan’s plan. People believe they are doing the best for their kids by sending them to schools that are being run by evil men with corrupt agendas – and in turn indoctrinate the kids; the good ole’ boys “fighting for our freedoms” are fighting fake wars on terror to further illegal and evil plans; poisons that break down our minds and bodies and cause birth defects and death are being fed to us through our food, medications, in the air, etc… It’s all happening right before us and like sheeple, we all allow ourselves to be herded right into the pen while they sit back and enjoy the show, and watch their power and pocketbooks grow. It’s amazing to me that more people have not seen through Satan’s plan and continue fostering it and doing his work for him – thinking they are doing good.

  3. william says:

    interesting read. sounds like the author has been reading henrymakow.com this is an identical story that appeared on his website, although this was much longer and better written. nice job. fact is, this has been going on for a while now, and if this really happened to the author, well then, its also happened to other missionaries. anyhow, if you want further proof of satanic mind control thru music watch this video on youtube, but i warn you, it isnt for the faint of heart, this is for real, and will shake you to your inner core. look folks, this is no fanciful story, the fact that we are locked in a life and death struggle with the deceiver, and this is not a joke!!! this is red alert time, and all people with any kind of awareness, their alarm bells should be going off like crazy. this is the final push i believe, and by this time next year, i doubt you will recognize what country you live in. think i am exaggerating, then watch this video, but dont watch it with children in the room.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_aQuCQ_yIo
    once again, i caution you, this is not for the faint of heart, it is pure evil and in your face. be strong my brothers and sisters, and show no fear.

    • Brian says:

      Actually, the truth is… henrymakow.com got the original article (a transcript of a fireside Brother Law gave) from LatterdayConservative.com. However, Marion Law has since requested that I pull the fireside transcript down and replace it with what you see posted now.

    • Great Bilby says:

      Watched the video, actually scanned through it, and part 28,29, and 30. That is some scary stuff. People actually go to those? But it’s happening. Satan is getting more blatant all the time.

  4. Felicity says:

    Sounds like The Giver. . . .

    How grateful I am to be awakening, and to be preparing to raise my children up in righteousness. I recognize Satan’s plan, and though I cannot completely shield myself and my children from its influence, I can counter it with Light and Truth. The Lord WILL prevail, in His time. It is up to the Elders of Israel to “awake and arise” and prepare the way for His Magnificent Kingdom.

    Thank you for posting this.

    • Jorgina says:

      My son and I had both read the Giver and as we read the “Melbourne Man” we both said “this sounds just like The Giver.”
      John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both felt that Plato, and I agree, was a bit whacked!
      The concept of “spiritual” communism is not a secret nor a new term. The models been in place for many years and are so obvious. You don’t have to be an insider to have seen the eradication of Christ in Communist Russia, Cambodia, China, etc. Hopefully, as in Lois Lowry’s The Giver, we who have awakened will begin to look for the true love and life. In our case, Christ.

  5. Connie Plemons says:

    I just read Ether 8 today and saw this same verse andit struck me with such force I knew I had to post it on the FB site. To all my friends and family. I know that we are definately in trouble in the US and want to warn my family. I just hope that they wake up and listen. Thanks so much for this it is just another witness to me of what I felt today as I read this passage.

  6. Rob Osborn says:

    Perhaps I am not seeing the murderous secret combination in our country. Could we be more specific?

    • Rob Osborn says:

      And where is the link?

      • Rob Osborn says:

        I watched the videos you presented and I see nothing new, just the same typical jargon from pro conspiracy theorists from the ultra right wing. The usual “bilderbergers, Rockefellers, UN, Illuminati, etc.

        If they are really in so much control to destroy our freedom then how come I don’t see it happening anywhere in the USA today? More importantly, how come the “current” church presidency is silent on the issue of all these supposed conspirators? Why is it that when Rex Rammel sought to run for senate with his pro cinspiracy approach that the church distanced itself from him?

        I don’t suppose you are one of those who believe in that movement out of SLC by some extreme right wing mormons who bel;ieve in leaving our homes to go live in tent cities in the mountains when the UN trys to take over the USA?

        • John says:

          When intruders are invading a home, they always take out the watchdogs first.

        • Theresa Graham says:

          It seems a person would be blind not to believe the obvious. If you refuse to believe our freedoms are not in jeopardy than you arent following what the Obama administration has been doing. My suggestion is read up on New World Order and it will become clear what is happening to our freedoms. The leaders of the church have a responsibility to help keep us faithful and strong against the enemy but not to bring us the latest in politics. Some people already have chips in their hands for banking. It wont be long before America wont be recognized anymore.

  7. Now that I’ve read this… did it ever occur to any of you guys that this so-called Australian “communist” was pulling this gullible missionary’s leg with this “spiritual communism” stuff. I mean, seriously, this stuff is classic. It’s total comedy. But it doesn’t have anything to do with Karl Marx and communism.

    And when I read, “God has even been declared unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court.” What? Really? Wow, I hadn’t noticed God was unconstitutional… But it’s not true. What’s unconstitutional is any kind of state sponsored and/or enforced religion. It is constitutional to have freedom of religion, which means anyone can worship whichever God, or no god, or however they interpret him (or her, or them) without some other dude telling him that he needs to abide by that other dude’s god. That is considerably different than “God has been declared unconstitutional”.

    And when I read, “All 10 points of Karl Marx’s communist manifesto have been quietly incorporated into American life. They have been accepted as “social progress”.” Come on guys, haven’t you read any other portion of the Communist Manifesto and those Introductions that Marx and Engels wrote that are always printed with it? I’ll just say a couple of things about these infamous “10 points” at the end of the second section of Communist Manifesto.

    1) Context, the context they should be in is in the few paragraphs above the “10 points”, in which we read: “We have seen above, that the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy.” Basically, what this is saying is a revolution needs to happen first, the ruling oligarchy of the bourgeois needs to be removed from power, and governing power needs to be put into the hands of the working class. A revolution is not just electing one of the two bourgeois parties to office again and again so they can continue capitalist exploitation as usual. So many anti-communist propagandists ignore this and try to reframe these “10 points” without the revolution, like this article does.

    2) These “10 points” aren’t that important. Why? Because Marx and Engels changed their minds, their thinking evolved. In the Preface to the 1872 German edition of the Communist Manifesto we read: “The practical application of the principles will depend, as the Manifesto itself states, everywhere and at all times, on the historical conditions for the time being existing, and, for that reason, no special stress is laid on the revolutionary measures proposed at the end of Section II. That passage would, in many respects, be very differently worded today.” (You can read the whole preface here: http://bit.ly/jFJZgC) Basically, Marx had learned after watching the revolutions of 1848 in France, and the 1871 Paris Commune, that those “10 points” he had written about in the Manifesto wouldn’t exactly go down all that well in actual practice.

    So, in other words, the idea that “all 10 points of Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto have been quietly incorporated into American life” is a bunch of baloney.

    Honestly, to take this story in any way seriously is just plain ridiculous.

  8. Rob Osborn says:

    Would somebody please list the actual conspiracy that is happening by our government and not just keep going on in the “conspiracy” and secret combination thing.

    I think a lot of times we border on “bearing false witness” when we go off saying it is this group or that group or this person or that person. If one is going to make claims, he needs solid evidence of it. I am just not going to hop on board with all of the other heresay until someone can actually show how and why we are under some great secret combination. And don’t just say that it is so secret that nobody knows. Even the Gadianton robbers didn’t work that way- they always were known and detected by their works of murder and other works of known darkness.

    So, if one says it is the “Illuminati” then show the trail of murder and corruption in it’s wake.

    • Rob Osborn says:

      Give me dates, events, proof besides mere quotes or passed along information. Even beyond that we need positive proof of what a group or individual did that led to a secret combination being manifest. Also, where is the trail of “murder” that always follows the gadianton types that are supposed to be part of this secret combination in our day?

      Now of course, if I lived in Mexico I wouldn’t even have to ask- the trail of the secret combinations are everywhere and are always manifest by the shedding of blood and corruption. But, here in America, if we discount the small gangs, mafia, etc, there aren’t any relevent gadiantons doing secret combinations.

      I asked someone today to name one person who was part of this “conspiracy”. That person said “Bill Clinton”. So I then asked- “What exactly did he do- give me dates and specifics showing how he is part of this conspiracy”. That person said that he had “just heard he was part of it but didn’t know for sure where or how he fit in”. This is typical of conspiracy theorists- plenty of finger pointing and yet very very little proof tying them to anything substancial. Meeting in secret types of groups or behind doors doesn’t count either- we as mormons do that in our temples everyday. We even have secret handshakes and oathes and even have our own plan for a united world order. So just because someone else says they have aplan for a united world order doesn’t mean Jack! If so, then we are as guilty as anyone, as a religion.

      • I disagree. There are and have been secret combinations at work in the United States for decades. I cannot give you dates and names, but you can see for yourself the fruits of their operations simply by observing trends in government, politics, and society, particulalry where the exercise of individual agency and moral standards are concerned. Our current White House administration is one of the most telling examples of fulfilment of the warnings in the Book of Mormon concerning secret combinations and Gadianton robbers. To say there are no such operations at work in America is to claim flasely that “all is well in zion”, a claim which we have been expressly and prophetically warned not to to assume. All is not well in zion, or in America for that matter.

    I am saddened by those who seem to be so hostile to the words of our modern prophets and also the scriptures that clearly testify of the danger of secret combinations in our day. I am surprised that people who do not subscribe to the idea that secret combinations exist in our own country even bother wasting one minute of their time on this site, with ideas they find “ridiculous” to quote from a previous comment.

    I doubt President Hinckley could have been any clearer in his first presidency message from 2005. I doubt that previous prophets and apostles could have been any clearer with their warnings. The Book of Mormon is written for our day. The two great civilizations were destroyed by secret combinations. The righteous Nephites at one time were seduced into believing in the works of the secret combination. (Helaman 6:38) If, as has been suggested that these secret combinations take the form of drug cartels, such as we see in Mexico, we should expect that members of our church today will be seduced into believing and taking part in the works of those drug cartels and other like combinations. I don’t see that this will ever happen. On the other hand, there is ample evidence from our scriptures and prophets that these secret combinations take another form. If you do not know what this is, take more time to prayerfully study the scriptures and the words of our prophets. If you seek to understand their words with a sincere heart and real intent, the Holy Ghost will manifest the truth unto you.

    Alma 9:23And now behold I say unto you, that if this people, who have received so many blessings from the hand of the Lord, should transgress contrary to the light and knowledge which they do have, I say unto you that if this be the case, that if they should fall into transgression, it would be far more tolerable for the Lamanites than for them………
    31Now it came to pass that when I, Alma, had spoken these words, behold, the people were wroth with me because I said unto them that they were a hard-hearted and a stiffnecked people.
    32And also because I said unto them that they were a lost and a fallen people they were angry with me, and sought to lay their hands upon me, that they might cast me into prison.

    • Rob Osborn says:

      The corruption in Mexico is exactly what the BoM was warning against. The BoM was written for the inhabitants of Mexico as much as it was for us. How does a Mexican view what is happening in their country? Do you think there are parallels? You bet.

      But if that is not the secret combination it was warning about for our country then what specific secret combination is happening seeking to overthrow our government. Rather than just making general statements, list some specific secret combinations happening in our government that is in process of overthrowing our freedom.

  10. Sounds like somebody was reading the book Earth Sink. This article is one of the most applicable expressions of what is happening in the world today, and has been going on throughout history. Prophets have warned, and few there be who heed.

    The quote from King Benjamin is a great quote and one I think we all need to remember. However, I think that praying for charity, which is probably one of the greatest gifts of the Spirit we could ever have, would be somewhat in vain if through our ignorance we were supporting and building up those people who are deliberately seeking to destroy man’s agency. That is a terrible sin, and one if we allow ourselves to fall into, has one of the most severe consequences of any sin that I can think of. Ether 8:23 … yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.
    And for those who have been slain by this secret combination, their voices cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and those who built it up. (Ether 8:24) That means if we are ignorantly or pridefully supporting and building up the secret combination, there are those who are crying for vengeance to come upon us. The key is therefore to be aware and awake to our situation. To know and recognize the secret combination and its works. If we are deceived, I think it would be very difficult for us to receive God’s mercy and receive so great a blessing as the pure love of Christ.

    Let us be not deceived as the righteous Nephites were in Helaman 6:38. Let us pray that we will be blessed with discernment and the ability to awaken to our situation. Then, we should by all means pray for charity and the pure love of Christ.

    Alex,

    Great comment. I think you and I agree. I will add one piece of clarification that I think has also been covered in other articles on this site. That is, we do have the details about the nature of the secret combination and who is apart of it and what we can do. Our prophets have been amazingly clear on this topic. Many have been cited in the comments section here and in other articles on this site. We have been given explicit instructions by our prophets and our scriptures to uphold that law which is constitutional and anything that is more or less than this cometh of evil. There are many many members of our church today who are quite unaware of which laws are constitutional and which people in our government uphold that law. Though they may be very valiant in striving to live the commandments.

    The righteous Nephites were seduced into believing in the works of the secret combination, which means it is very likely that we too in our day will also be seduced into believing in the secret combination today. The solution is simple, know the Constitution, know which laws are constitutional and which people are true and faithful to it. Support them and those laws, anything that is more or less will be evil.

    As David O. McKay stated, “Next to being one in worshipping God there is nothing in this world upon which the Church should be more united that in upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States.”

    I notice he didn’t go into the details of the evil doers and secret combinations, President McKay simply stated what it is that we need to do.

    But you are quite right. We also need to help those who are truly in need. We need to pray for and be filled with the pure love of Christ. That should always be our focus.

    All very true. Our nation is prepared for the economic collapse in 2012. Obama will offer the final plan to save all of our investments, social security, jobs etc. He will have to nationalize the country to save us all and we will let him.

    Recently the president of the United States of America called for an investigation into where and how police forces are aquiring military weapons and supply? Should he not know that citizens have been asking about the militarization of police forces for some time! All things good and bad seem to be accelerating in this world,

  15. This article (and the book it reviews) seem to support this man’s experience: The Beatles — Illuminati Mind Controllers.

      Except for the fact that this happened supposedly in 1947. John Lennon was 7 years old. The Melbourne man could not have told him anything about the Beatles. Which makes the whole thing suspect.

      Brother Law appears to have gone to the Paul H Dunn school of storytelling.

      • Tim says:

        ElderGreen, Melbourne Man told him nothing about the Beatles, Bro. Law was just putting 2 + 2 together and put this comment in to highlight that this melodic dissonance had indeed happened later on.

    I am always amazed at those who deny there are conspiracies afoot, and how they label those who try to bring them to light as conspiracy “theorists.” As long as evil exists in this world, there will be conspiracies.

    Well, it’s been 3 years Rob. I hope your eyes have been opened by now regarding what is afoot in our country. It hasn’t just started, either, it’s been going on for many decades. The Lord told Joseph Smith, as recorded in Doctrine and Covenants 38:29 “Ye hear of wars in far countries, and you say that there will soon be great wars in far countries, but ye know not the hearts of men in your own land.”

    As a LDS, this sounds waaaaaay too fishy for me. Way to perfect. With just enough broad strokes, mystery and intrigue to fill a Dan Brown novel, and anachronisms left and right, I have to dismiss this if I want to be honest with myself.

  18. Robin Hood says:

    This is a made up story.
    I do not believe it happened, nor do I believe the conversation could be recalled in such detail all these years later.

    Some things don’t fit right either, eg “longevity genes”…. in 1947?
    And, of course, there is the obligatory name dropping, ie Elder Matthew Cowley and Pres. Ezra Taft Benson.

    I don’t deny the existence of secret combinations, or that international communism is an example, among many, of such.
    But this story is clearly a fabrication, and a very poor one at that.

  19. Logan says:

    I find this interesting that this man is not even describing true communism. He is describing authoritarian communism. True communism perhaps has never been practiced because it involves the participation of all the members of a society. So, like in the Book of Mormon when “they had everything in common with one another” and their was no rich and no poor. Sounds like a communistic society to me. A true one with no masters other than God. Break your glass ceilings in your minds and stop being so scared of communism and Satan. He has no power over you. Consider.
