In the 2nd chapter of the Book of Helaman, Mormon makes a bold statement about one very wicked man.

“And behold, in the end of this book ye shall see that this Gadianton did prove the overthrow, yea, almost the entire destruction of the people of Nephi.” (Helaman 2:13)

How can one man be so malevolent as to cause the downfall of an entire nation?

What evil did he introduce to the people of Nephi that precipitated their demise in the most violent show of divine force imaginable?

The writers of The Book of Mormon answer that critical question very plainly, with just two words: secret murder.

What exactly is secret murder? And what do we need to know about its insidious and corrosive effects on a nation?

This book answers those questions and more by revealing the shocking truth about secret murder and its long, sordid history that can be traced back to Cain’s deal with the devil.

Just as it precipitated the swift and violent demise of the Nephites, it will be shown that secret murder had the same destructive effect on the Jaredite people who came before them.

And, according to the prophecies discussed in this book, secret murder will bring down the same level of divine wrath upon this nation if we do not stop drenching her soil with the blood of our most holy and innocent ones—our precious babies.

Amberli Peterson has been an avid reader of ancient scripture from a young age, particularly The Book of Mormon. Since 2010, she has been conducting and presenting independent research on a variety of scriptural topics throughout the United States and several European countries. Additionally, Amberli has always held a firm conviction of the preeminent power of life endowed to us by our Divine Parents and believes that it should be guarded and protected with the utmost vigilance. While studying The Book of Mormon in 2020, Amberli made a startling discovery: the pernicious plague of abortion and its singular ability to bring a nation to its knees is a central (though obscured) theme of the book and, thus, warrants a deep and thorough examination. #Ripened is her exposition of this timely and significant finding.  


And behold, in the end of this book ye shall see that this Gadianton did prove the overthrow, yea, almost the entire destruction of the people of Nephi.

Helaman 2:13
