Just the thread to vent about something that's been bugging me for awhile. The knights templar, supposed forerunner of the freemasons. First - scripture says Jesus said there would not be one stone left standing of the 2nd Temple's destruction. Scripture also said the Roman command quarters were up above the temple. It is said that the templars, while in Jerusalem were stationed in the old stables when they found some hidden treasure...ie the grail. 1100 +years after Jesus and the 70AD temple destruction. Even if the temple mount is where the dome of the rock now stands....why would Christ's grail be in the sanhedrin's temple??? Since when does the temple have a stable???? The Davinci Code says they found some manuscripts that said Jesus was married to Magdalene. Jesus is said to have 4 brothers...and at least one had descendants that were questioned by Domitian.....If you don't believe scripture, then those brothers and sisters could have carried the bloodline. I don't think we know where the 2nd temple really was and I think the muslims built on the old Roman command center. I think the templars got rich because they invented the 1st international bank system and I think they were slaughtered out of greed. Everything I have read about the templars doesn't show any of the same ideology unless you consider that all conspiracies against God come from the same place.
