yes, all correct. but all of you are absolutely silly if you don't realize that the real knights templars who claim that heritage, divine path,
etc..still exist today in other forms out there. they are all around you, in your face, daily, and you still can't see it. which is sad
you are looking at your local masonic lodge, or shriner and saying..see. they are not real templars
well no crap. the templars today are not wearing metal!
lighten up and wake up. have any of you even existed in this world since 2000 and seen the changes going on?
I will agree that groups using the Templar Ideals are floating around, but they are not the original group. I say this based of the points of them not
fully following the known core values of the original Templars.
I could easily start up a group of people that say that they are from the original Templars (anyone can). We could even have odd rights of passage
that take their acts from history, but none of that means that we're a real group of Templars. I believe that this is what these new Templars are
doing. Ask yourself these questions about these groups;
(1) Are they following the Judeo-christian beliefs that Jesus taught, or are they using the Catholic which most lay-people believe that they
(2)Are they forcibly tauting their religion?
(3)Are they working out in the open?
(4)Can they provide a direct link to the original group?
If they are not following all of these then they can't really be part of the original group. Remember that the Templars weren't afraid to show how
proud they were of being a Templar, and the only thing realy secert about them was the rights of passage when becoming one. I mean sure it can be
argued that they did many things in secert, but they were the military arm of the church first, and an occult group second.
Over the years there have been really good cases made for the continued existance for the Templars, but it points to the Vaticans Swiss Guards. Though
they don't pass the test in that they don't practise Judeo-Christian teachings, but rather Catholic teachings instead.
Why do I make a difference between Judeo-Christian teachings and Chatholic teaching? Well that another discussion for another time, BUT there is a
major difference between them and how they came about.
