The Templar Church does not use the letters PBUH (peace be upon him.) behind names of saints or names of angels. Even more, not even behind the name of the messiah, the Son of God! The use of (pbuh) is a pagan* custom. The use (pbuh) is used by pagans as a kind of lucky charm or as a kind of swearing (oath making), both things Jesvs warned against.
- Matthew 5:34-37 ...I say to you: Do not swear at all, neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Do not swear by your head, since you cannot turn one hair white or black. 37 Just let your word ‘Yes’ mean yes, your ‘No,’ no, for what goes beyond this is from the wicked one.
(*) Pagan: any religion that is not christian is considered a pagan religion according to the Templar Church.
the use of TitlesEditThe Templar church also does not use church titles, when greeting or talking to each other. Eventhough one may be Frato, Patro, Avo or Apostle, when greeting an Apostle one does just use the word "brother". For Jesvs told us to do so:
- Matthew 23: 8-10 But you, do not be called Rabbi, for one is your Teacher, and all of you are brothers. 9 Moreover, do not call anyone your father on earth, for one is your Father, the heavenly One. 10 Neither be called leaders, for your Leader is one, the Christ.
