The "Mahan Principle"
Cain was the first to master the secret of converting life into property:
And Cain said: Truly I am Mahan, the master of this great secret, that I may murder and get gain. Wherefore Cain was called Master Mahan, and he gloried in his wickedness. -- Moses 5:31“And there are also secret combinations [this gets more serious, you see], even as in times of old,according to the combinations of the devil, for he is the founder of all these things; yea, the founder of murder, and works of darkness; yea, and he leadeth them by the neck with a flaxen cord, until he bindeth them with his strong cords forever.” We immediately think of the Mafia here and things like this—secret combinations and works of darkness. The foundation is murder. That’s what the Mafia sells. The product that brings the Mafia its biggest income is murder. Amazing business, isn’t it? Of course, it’s the same with the military, with arms makers and things like that. You can make quite a list of the Mahan principle, “I am master of this great secret, that I may murder and get gain.” You can convert life into property. They do it all over the place; it’s always done."

Is the "flaxen cord," referenced above, the primary symbol of today's business man?
"[Back to Helaman 6:26:] by that same being who did entice our first parents [that is Satan] to partake of the forbidden fruit—Yea, that same being who plotted with Cain . . .” to make him rich if he murdered his brother. That is why he did it. He murdered his brother to get gain. And notice, this is the great secret of Master Mahan—that I can convert life into property. All of these things I’ve been reading here [from the newspaper, for example] jeopardize life; they all destroy some of the quality of life. They all distract from life. They are all anti-life, but they get gain. The only way you can get money is to convert living things into gain. So the earth is being made absolutely desolate in our time in an astonishing manner."

As long as people keep in mind the simple definition Christ, himself, gave of his church there is a lot of valuable information in the book above. However, I do not endorse the LDS Church or any other organized religion. They all fall under the second church referenced, above, the Great and Abominable Church of the Devil. I will link to an article about that shortly.
