This review is from: The Templar Revelation: Secret Guardians of the True Identity of Christ (Paperback)
I must admit to buying this book in order to find out about the Knights Templar. After the first section, I soon realised this book is NOT about the Templars and their inclusion has little more coverage than other sects and societies ie Cathars, Rosicrusions and Freemasons. The book basically questions the beliefs and teachings of todays church and to the uneducated on these matters (a group that I fall into) I believe this could be very dangerous reading. The authors have undoubtedly done their homework and with the references they supply to back up their findings, I doubt that even the most devout christian could not finish this book and dismiss it as total rubbish.
Though I am not a churchgoer, I have had a christian upbringing and from an early age have been led to believe that the teachings of the bible are to be taken seriously, that the birth and death of Christ are probably the two most critical events that have ever taken place and the church have got everything right and are the main upholders of the teachings we are all familiar with.
I now have very serious, and worrying doubts as to whether I have been misled all these years. The evidence produced in the book that there is another 'truth' can be either taken on board or dismissed either in part or totally but the assumption that the church are actually aware of a different truth and have chosen to deliberately suppress it I find a little more worrying. Can I still take the church seriously and treat it with the respect I always have done? Can the beliefs of the Templars and other secret societies be taken seriously? Someone must be right and someone must be wrong. Perhaps we've all got it wrong and the only thing I believe for certain is that one day we'll all find out just how right or wrong we've been.
