We're deeply engaged in a fascinating study of Melchizedek, the Third Epochal Revelation of God to our world. We've learned that Melchizedek came to earth on an emergency mission to rekindle the light of truth on Urantia. He thoroughly trained his messengers and dispatched them to the four corners of earth from Salem, now Jerusalem. These extraordinary papers examine how his teachings spread and recount the profound effect Melchizedek had on our world.
This week we dive deeper into his influence in China and India as we discuss great teachers of the past like Lao Tse, Confucius, and Buddha.
The UB says this about these great teachers of truth:
94:6.4 Lao-tse also made one of the earliest presentations of the doctrine of returning good for evil: “Goodness begets goodness, but to the one who is truly good, evil also begets goodness.”
94:6.9 Confucius (Kung Fu-tze) was a younger contemporary of Lao in sixth-century China. Confucius based his doctrines upon the better moral traditions of the long history of the yellow race, and he was also somewhat influenced by the lingering traditions of the Salem missionaries. His chief work consisted in the compilation of the wise sayings of ancient philosophers. He was a rejected teacher during his lifetime, but his writings and teachings have ever since exerted a great influence in China and Japan.
94:7.5 At Benares Gautama founded his school, and it was during its second year that a pupil, Bautan, imparted to his teacher the traditions of the Salem missionaries about the Melchizedek covenant with Abraham; and while Siddhartha did not have a very clear concept of the Universal Father, he took an advanced stand on salvation through faith — simple belief.
