The Melchizedek Teachings in the Levant






As India gave rise to many of the religions and philosophies of eastern Asia, so the Levant was the homeland of the faiths of the Occidental world. The Salem missionaries spread out all over southwestern Asia, through Palestine, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Iran, and Arabia, everywhere proclaiming the good news of the gospel of Machiventa Melchizedek. In some of these lands their teachings bore fruit; in others they met with varying success. Sometimes their failures were due to lack of wisdom, sometimes to circumstances beyond their control.

The Salem Religion in Mesopotamia
By 2000 B.C. the religions of Mesopotamia had just about lost the teachings of the Sethites and were largely under the influence of the primitive beliefs of two groups of invaders...


Early Egyptian Religion
For ages the Egyptian peoples had been given to the worship of nature gods...


Evolution of Moral Concepts
Moral evolution is not wholly dependent on revelation.


The Teachings of Amenemope
Amenemope functioned to conserve the ethics of evolution and the morals of revelation, and in his writings passed them on to both the Hebrews and the Greeks.


The Remarkable Ikhnaton
Very wisely Ikhnaton sought to establish monotheism under the guise of the sun-god.


The Salem Doctrines in Iran
For more than five hundred years the Salem teachers made headway in Iran...


The Salem Teachings in Arabia
As in Greece, so in Arabia the Salem missionaries failed because of their misunderstanding of Machiventa's instructions regarding over-organization.
