While the Dominion of Melchizedek cannot control the actions of the former founder of the DoM regarding his spiritual beliefs and his activities relating to such beliefs, we don not condone his spiritual work and such work does not reflect the beliefs of the current standing Members of the Dominion of Melchizedek.
The Dominion of Melchizedek hereby denounce the “Melchizedek Bible” and hereby declare it has no bearing to the functions of administration or philosophy of the current standing sovereign Members of the Dominion of Melchizedek. Mr. Korem can choose to believe and profess what he likes. However, in relation to the Dominion of Melchizedek, his beliefs have no bearing on the functions of the State and are separate and apart from how We conduct ourselves as Members of the Family of Nations.
The “Law of Nations” is the guiding principles for the Peoples of the Dominion of Melchizedek. The specific reference being Book 1 Section 220:
Many distinctions will be necessary in order to give a complete solution to the celebrated question, whether a man may quit his country or the society of which he is a member. 1. The children are bound by natural ties to the society in which they were born: they are under an obligation to shew themselves grateful for the protection it has afforded to their fathers, and are in a great measure indebted to it for their birth and education. They ought therefore to love it, as we have already shewn (§122),—to express a just gratitude to it, and requite its services as far as possible by serving it in turn. We have observed above (§212), that they have a right to enter  into the society of which their fathers were members. But every man is born free; and the son of a citizen, when come to the years of discretion, may examine whether it be convenient for him to join the society for which he was destined by his birth. If he  does not find it advantageous to remain in it, he is at liberty to quit it on making it a compensation for what it has done in his favour, and preserving, as far as his new engagements will allow him, the sentiments of love and gratitude he owes it. A man’s obligations to his natural country may, however, change, lessen, or entirely vanish, according as he shall have quitted it lawfully, and with good reason, in order to choose another, or has been banished from it deservedly or unjustly, in due form of law, or by violence.
