The Order of the Knights Templar was originally a Gnostic based order that maintained a secrecy of its occult collaboration. These Templar’s weren’t your average Christians, who obeyed and were loyal to the Pope and Church.
The Templar’s practiced many of their occult practices underground, to avoid interference from the Church. Saying that they were charged with the act of pagan worship at their trials in the 1300’s which led to thousands being executed, and some burnt at the stake.
As Templar’s became aware of their impending death sentence, some planned their escape, making their departure from the order, and becoming Masons.
Some charges brought forward at the trials of the Knights Templar were false whilst others were accurate. Evidence was provided of idol worshipping.
Charges against the Order of the Knights Templar:
- When a new Templar was received into the order, he denied Christ, the Holy Virgin and the saints, an act instigated by those receiving him. He was told Christ was not the true God, that he was a false prophet who had not been crucified for the redemption of the human race, but on account of his sins. There was therefore no hope of receiving salvation through Christ. The new member was then made to spit on the crucifix or image of Christ.
- The Templar’s adored idols, with specific mention of a cat and a head of three faces. The head was worshipped as a saviour and venerated as a giver of plenty that could make trees flower and land germinate. They touched or encircled it with small cords which they wore around their waists.
- That they did not believe in the sacraments and that the Templar priests omitted the words of consecration during mass.
- That they believed that the Grand Master and other leaders could hear their confessions and absolve them from sin, despite the fact that many of the leaders were laymen.
- The Order’s receptors kissed new entrants on the mouth, navel, stomach, buttocks and spine, and acts of homosexuality were encouraged.
- Templar’s sought gain for the Order; lawful or not. Donations to the Order were not used in approved ways, nor were they apportioned to hospitals.
- Chapter meetings and receptions were held in secret at night under heavy guard, and only Templar’s could be present. Brother’s who revealed to an outsider what had occurred were punished by imprisonment or death.
From “The Trial of the Templar’s” by Malcolm Barber (2006)
During their time in the Middle-East the Order of the Knights Templar established and maintained contact with mystic sects of different religions and denominations, including sorcerers.
The orders higher echelons acquainted themselves and incorporated into the order beliefs based on mystic teaching of the Cabala, Bogomils and Luciferians, leaving Christianity behind.
In their eyes, Jesus ruled another world, with limited power in this one and Satan was the lord of our world.
The Templar’s revered the idol of Baphomet; a demon with the head of a goat, the symbol of “The Church of Satan.”
Baphomet, the deity worshipped by the Knights Templar, and in Black Magic, the source and creator of evil; the Satanic goat of the witches Sabbath.
During the trials of the Knights Templar, most mentioned worshipping Baphomet. The idol with a scary looking human head and a long beard with shinning eyes. Some mentioned human skulls, cat idols and objects of satanic worship.
The demon Baphomet, an object of satanic veneration; having a goat’s head with two faces, a winged body which is female above the waist and male below the waist.
After the confessions in the French Courts, the Pope interrogated seventy-two Templar’s. They then knelt down before the Pope and asked for forgiveness.
The interrogation of the Templar’s culminated in their dissolution in 1312, and Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Order, was burned at the stake in 1314 on charges of heresy.
Templar’s fled for their lives throughout Christendom, some were captured crossing France, Germany and Italy, and others were more fortunate, reaching countries who offered refuge.
