Flaxen Cords ~ A Connection between Secret Combinations and Ancient Khipu Knotted Devices – by Bret Eborn.
Just how did the Gadianton Robbers, and others, transmit their secrets to one another? Whispering their secrets in each other’s ears simply would have been neither practical nor sufficient. This theory suggests that there was an actual device used to transmit these secret combinations after the destruction of the Jaredites, the Nephites,and perhaps even the Lamanites, were still being used by certain Native Americans at the time of the arrival of the Spaniards to the Americas. This book contains a unique and fascinating theory about a method used to transfer secret information among those who practiced these abominations. While this explanation cannot be proven at this time, it is a logical and practical one, the most sound explanation to date,and one that certainly warrants the attention of serious students of the Book of Mormon. Secret combinations are mentioned throughout the Book of Mormon, and in the Pearl of Great Price and Doctrine and Covenants. We know from these scriptures where they came from and that they were used to commit murder and whoredoms, destroy the Saints, and to topple governments. They were often associated with the term “works of darkness.” We know they have existed for thousands of years, that they surfaced in the days of Cain, then among the Jaredites, and much later among the Nephites and Lamanites. We have had the Book of Mormon for almost 200 years and a logical explanation of how these secret combinations were passed from one individual to another has not existed, until now.
