What is the Sacred Medical Order of the Knights (church) of Hope?
SMOKH is the Hospitaller Order of Physicians and Ecclesiae (Latin plural: church). The order strives for the promotion of education, historical preservation, and medical welfare. SMOKH promotes modern monastic (natural) life for those living in constant education, helping others, providing spiritual counseling and therapeutics, etc. all in keeping with Matthew 10:8 (NASB): “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.”
SMOKH provides healthcare practitioners a legal and spiritual path to offer Biblical health and wellness services to their clients – the practice we refer to as Ecclesiastic (Monastic) Medicine, a tradition dating back to the beginning of the Christian era. The very word ‘hospital’, as a shelter for the needy, is clearly of Christian origin. Nursing and monastic medicine were the very origins of nature cure (aka ‘naturopathy‘) as our anthology of medical history points out.
