Do you need a religious affiliation to be a Knight?

Post by Butch Hendricks on Thu May 26, 2016 2:45 pm

For anyone that has pursued, or gained Knighthood, it's pretty obvious that there is a huge spiritual component. My question for you all is this:

To truly embrace knighthood, do you think being an active church member is required to be a successful knight? Why or why not?

I hope not. Many of our Knights do not belong to any religion per se. Their allegiance is to certain principles that hopefully all good people can agree upon. In this way we can untie people who are otherwise divided by faith, politics, etc.

Any other thoughts out there?

Dean, KCN

It seems to me, and I mean no insult, that the current climate promotes more means of divisiveness that it does means to unify people.

That's true. That's why our fellowship is failing. Everyone wants it their way, and we all know where that leads. We just can't seem not to prod each other over differences. I suppose on some level that makes people feel good, but quite frankly all it does is destroy everything.

Best of luck.

Dean

Dear Knights,

I am a Christian Knight.

However, for me one does not need a religious affiliation to be part of Chivalry Now.

Chivalry Now is not about religion, it is about believing in values that are made clear in the Twelve Trusts and the Esoterica Concepts. One can be of any religion or no religion at all and come to Chivalry Now because we believe in those values and concepts.

Chivalry Now is for anyone who believes in making the world a better place through our modern Chivalric Code, not through religion.

Arete!
