The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Knights of the Imperial Orders is a lay religious order and a vowed clerical order. We are a Christian organization. However, our programs in the community are open to everyone, without regard to race, ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, or faith. We are here and willing to help anyone who is in distress!
We take our orders directly from Christ, the first true knight. He clearly commands us to action through the Gospel of Matthew. Without trying to overwhelm anyone with religious, here is the exact quote - Matthew 25: 31-46:
31 "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left."
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
***You will find no dictate in the words of Christ that those you serve or save must be Christian or White or Straight or Just. Christ's words are very clear. All men are our brothers and all women are our sisters. Color, Creed, Ethnic Origin, Sex, Sexual Orientation or other factors used for discrimination are not acceptable to Christ. Therefore, we seek to serve all human beings and we try to leave all judgments to God.
