Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, scrapped Knight and Dame titles from the Australian Honour System. This led to the misconception, that those titles bestowed onto a Squire/Page from any Order (like ours or E.g. the Order of the Hospitallers); do not exist anymore. That is NOT so, and they are still bestowed onto eligible persons.
NO – this website of the Order of the Australian Templar Knights is NOT just another group of so-called Templar Knights.
YES – we represent and follow the same ideas and ideals of so many groups, which do a great job and follow the basics of monarchy, nobility, chivalry, Knighthood as-such and maybe even the St Bernhard’s Rules; BUT, we keep and uphold the truth, any truth even if it hurts. (John 8:32)
To be a follower of us, you should approve our aim and be enthusiastic and a devotee. It would make you a supporter and a kind of affiliate.
To feel and strive for our goal, and to actively participate in reaching it, will make you a member – a Lord of the Templar Knights. As such, our intention is not to dominate those sub-groups; but to try and work together with them in any way possible to adhere to the Rules and Regulations of the Knights Templar.
The realization of ideological ideals and the demands derived from them are made by the pure feeling and inner intention of a human being.
Only when the ideal and real urge for a military formation in a medieval Order is sought, then will this urgent wish come true. Any ideology, even if it is a thousand times correct and of the highest value to the group; will remain meaningless as long as each individual does not strive for it.
The organizational registration of a group can only take place on the basis of certain conditions. For the faith of any religion are dogmas necessary, for a military group like the Templar Knights; are the principles and rules of the highest importance.
Thus, the highest purpose of the Order is the concern for the preservation of those ancient primordial elements that, as cultural beneficiaries, create the beauty and dignity of higher knowledge. We, as Templar Knights, are thus able to imagine under guidance the living organism of a group, which not only ensures the preservation of this growth but also leads it to the highest freedom through the furthering of its spiritual and idealistic capacities.
We celebrate our victories but we don’t mourn our loss like the palm fronds waving, tearful pacifist mourners. We were founded by the victorious sword of special peoples, taking it into the service of a higher civilization. Anyone who speaks of a mission of the Order of the Templar Knights on earth must know that it can exist only in the formation of a tight togetherness of individuals with the same goal. Templar Knights see their highest task in the preservation and promotion of the undamaged noblest elements not only of our history, indeed but also about our future.
It is, of course, easier to see in authority only the formal mechanism of an organization; than the sovereign embodiment of the self-preservation instinct of a group in the time we live in. The leaders of such an entity must not lose sight of their principals and the goal of the organisation. Any introduction of a variety of Knowledge will inevitably lead to an increase of the overall understanding and implementation of the purpose of the group.
JIHAD (Holy War) – is a war fought in one’s own country, to fight against the infiltration of another religious belief.
The church makes extraordinary admissions about its New Testament. For example, when discussing the origin of those writings, ‘the most distinguished body of academic opinion ever assembled’ (Catholic Encyclopaedias, Preface) admits that the Gospels ‘do not go back to the first century of the Christian era’ (Catholic Encyclopaedia, Farley ed., vol. VI, p.137, pp. 655-6). This statement conflicts with priesthood assertions that the earliest Gospels were progressively written during the decades following the death of Jesus Christ. In a remarkable aside, the Church further admits that ‘the earliest of the extant manuscripts [of the New Testament], it is true, do not date back beyond the middle of the fourth century AD’ ( Catholic Encyclopaedia, op. Cit., pp. 655-7). That is 350 years after the time the church claims that Jesus Christ walked the sands of Palestine, and here the true story of Christian origin slips into one of the biggest black holes in history.
The New Testaments quotes many historical events, but the historical writings state not one of the religious events.
Gospel = God spell
If a group of people thinks that a certain sum of the highest energy and vigour is united in one goal, and thus is withdrawn from the inertia of the broad masses, these few percents have become the masters of the whole number. The history of the Templar Knights was made by minorities who had the will and the determination. What may be aggravating today is really the prerequisite for our success. It is precisely in the greatness and difficulty of our task that there is the likelihood that only the best people will come together to pursue it.
The principle and basic idea of Templar Knights, can not be infiltrated by other ideas or dogmas. It would destroy the very soul and satisfaction of being a Soldier fighting for the truth. A hybrid organisation has no chance to survive by keeping more than one basic idea alive. The culture of being a Templar Knight is unique. By diluting it, it would create a herd of followers with no goal. Templar Knights uphold that very culture because they are the carrier, no better; they are the creator of that culture.
