Why Am I a Knight Templar in Modern Times?
– By Pastor Richard DeFord, OSMTJ-USA Chaplain, Commander, & Baptist Minister
Why am I a Knight Templar in the modern times?
Because a Knight of Christ is needed for times like these. As the culture rages against Christ and his disciples, the whole of Christendom needs men and women of such conviction as to lay down their lives to advance the cross.
When Templars rode in past centuries, their mission was to protect innocents who were attacked without provocation by the despots of Islam. Today our brothers and sisters of Christ around the globe are tortured and murdered by the same.
But our war is not against flesh and blood. Our war is against principalities and powers, the rulers of wickedness in places unseen and their leader, who walks about like a lion, seeking whom he may devour. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but they are mighty through prayer.
We seek to encourage believers, grow disciples, bolster the ones seeking after righteousness in wicked times, and equip saints for spiritual combat. We are Knights and Dames, serving Jesus Christ, and He promises that we can do ALL things through Him because He provides our strength.
