The late Reverend Richard Wurmbrand spent 14 years as a prisoner of the Communist government in Romania , where he was persecuted for his faith in Jesus Christ. His experience led him to spend further years researching Karl Marx and the Communist doctrines he developed. While Communism portrays itself as a noble endeavor for the good of mankind, and claims an Atheistic view, Wurmbrand exposes its true roots, revealing that Karl Marx and the fathers of the modern Communist/Socialist movements were inspired by the powers of darkness.
By examining the confessions, writings, and poetry of Marx and his followers, the author demonstrates how the "prince of darkness" gave these men the "sword" by which they have terrorized the nations. Wurmbrand proves that this movement is not simply the work of greedy men, hungry for wealth and power, but is "after the working of Satan" with the intent of destroying mankind.

- Karl Marx.
_Marx & Satan_, published in 1986 by Living Sacrifice Book Company, written by Rev. Richard Wurmbrand is a fascinating look into the secret life of Karl Marx and the communist revolutionaries he helped inspire showing their Satanic influence. Richard Wurmbrand (1909 - 2001) was a Romanian Evangelical Christian minister who was brutally captured and tortured by communists. As such he had first-hand experience with the atrocities of the communist menace and devoted much of his life to researching the evils of communism. He founded Jesus to the Communist World (renamed Voice of the Martyrs) and was active in helping Christians who suffered at the hands of communists and Marxists. This book is unique in that it makes direct allegations concerning the person of Karl Marx. As is apparent to all those who have studied Marx, he is not only a hater of religion and Christ but also a hater of humanity itself and a promoter of destruction. Marxists have claimed that Marx was in fact an atheist and denied the existence of God. However, this book seems to indicate that Marx was actually a Satanist and involved in Satanic rituals and that communism itself constitutes a "Satanic cult". It should be noted however that the distinction between atheism and Satanism becomes blurry because of the hatred of atheists for Christ and because of the fact that many public atheists are actually private Satanists.
Wurmbrand begins his book by explaining how Marxist ideas have even infiltrated Christianity. Indeed, it is maintained by some that Marx sought to aid the exploited masses and that thus his teachings may be understood as fundamentally Christian. Many Christians and even clergy have also embraced Marxism and preached his teachings as a continuation of the teachings of Christ. However, Wurmbrand quickly shows that this is a Satanic conceit, that Marx had no intention of aiding the poor and oppressed but only sought destruction, and that in fact Marx very likely worshipped the Dark Lord, the very enemy of Christ himself. Wurmbrand notes that the Jew Marx began as a Christian believer as a young man. However, he quickly turned to hatred of God in his writings, although his life had largely been comfortable up until that point. Wurmbrand notes Marx's relationship to Bakunin as well as the role of the Satanist Church (in its diabolical attempts to imitate the Catholic mass through the black mass) in the life of Marx. Wurmbrand shows how Marx composed a drama entitled _Oulanem_ which had Satanic undertones and may have participated in the black mass. Wurmbrand also compares Marx to another diabolical individual hellbent on destruction, the Marquis de Sade, and notes the role of Marx's hatred for books (including his own books which he called "swinish books"). Wurmbrand then turns his attention to Satan in Marx's family, noting Marx's desire to "chase God from heaven" and the role of the thinking of Bakunin and Heine on Karl Marx. Wurmbrand also mentions Marx's devilish poetry and the role of Marx's Satanic thought among the thugs of the Soviet Union. Wurmbrand also mentions Marx's ravaged life, his hatred, and his money troubles. Following this, Wurmbrand turns his attention to the life of Engels (the co-author with Marx of _The Communist Manifesto_). Wurmbrand notes the fact that Engels too began as a Christian (and was eventually to repent of his evils). Wurmbrand however notes Engels counter-conversion and the role of Satanism. Following this, Wurmbrand makes mention of the fact that Marx hated entire nations, including the Jews, the Germans, and the English. Marx in fact was a virulent racist and frequently made hateful remarks about blacks and others in his writings. Following this, Wurmbrand makes mention of a revelation made by one of Marx's housemaids. This maid noted that Marx in fact was involved in spiritual practices and prayed alone in his room with lighted candles and a sort of tape measure around his forehead suggesting phylacteries used by Orthodox Jews. However, Wurmbrand will argue that such practices were actually Satanic in nature. Wurmbrand also makes mention of family letters, biographers testimonies, and the secrets behind Lenin's life. Following this, Wurmbrand explains how the Antichrist of Marxism is in fact a "cruel counterfeit" and attempts only to accomplish destruction with no true interest in aiding the poor, the working class, or the oppressed. Wurmbrand notes the role of Satanism in the words and deeds of such men as Bukharin, Stalin, Mao, Ceausescu, and Andropov. Wurmbrand also notes the Satanic cruelty of the Marxists and communists and their delight in torturing innocents and especially Christians. Wurmbrand also notes the practice of communists for engaging in Satanic rites and includes copies of Satanic inversions of the Lord's prayer used by communist thugs. Wurmbrand considers religious obscenities and Marxism as a church. Following this, Wurmbrand notes the influence of the thought of Charles Darwin on Karl Marx. Wurmbrand also notes the role of a false Zionism based on socialism and Jewish supremacism in the writings of Moses Hess, a fellow communist. Wurmbrand notes the penchant of communists for mocking the Lord such as by naming one of their organizations "Hell". Wurmbrand also relates this to the black magical practices of the Nazis. Following this, Wurmbrand makes note of the Satanist mass within Marxism as well as the Satanic (and Croweleyian) idea that "everything is permitted". Wurmbrand notes the role of a figure called Robin Goodfellow (a nickname for Lucifer) in Marxist writings. Wurmbrand also makes some remarks on Lenin's tomb. Wurmbrand ends by including a chapter on the reaction to this book as it originally appeared, both positive and negative from communist and Satanist circles. Wurmbrand finally asks the question: Marx of Christ? He shows the great gulf between the God-man Christ (the true proletarian hero) and the all-too-human Marx. He also considers the fact that while Marx remained unrepentant one can imagine him saying "Proletarians of the world, forgive me!" for his vile crimes against humanity and God. The book ends with an appendix explaining why a Christian cannot be a Marxist, showing the diabolical influence of Marxism on Christianity through such new movements as Liberation Theology (existing parasitically off the Roman Catholic Church), and attempts to infiltrate the Orthodox Churches as well.
This book provides a gruesome account of the crimes of the Marxists and makes specific mention of the hatred and blasphemy of Christ. The book makes a profound case the Marx indeed dabbled in Satanism and that Marxian communism constitutes a "Satanic cult". While the author notes that the hands of capitalism are not clean, he does note the importance of maintaining a Christian and spiritual brotherhood with one's fellow man. One cannot serve both God and Mammon. While many of those who remain sympathetic to the diabolical Marx are likely to dismiss this as "right wing propaganda", it will certainly give them pause before expressing sympathy for such a profoundly hateful and anti-Christian man who unleashed the terrors of the Twentieth century upon the world.
