Why Hitler was not a Christian and should never be called one

43 posts in this topic

I've heard a number of Christian-bashers claim that Hitler was a Christian, but he wasn't.

It's important that we defend our faith and stand up for the word of the true God but sometimes we need facts and explanations in order to do so. Here is something for you all to ponder:

 

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Although Adolf Hitler was probably raised as a Christian (Roman Catholic) there is strong evidence that he despised Christianity and he certainly did not follow its teachings. He sometimes used Christian analogies in order to gain favour with the predominantly Christian German population, but he had no regard for its teachings except where it suited him. Hitler however held the religion of Islam in high regard. Below is a quote from Hitler himself :

 

"The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us

than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and

flabbiness …?"

 

Adolf Hitler (from the memoirs of Albert Speer, Hitler‘s minister of armaments)

 

Here is another quote that demonstrates Hitler's views on Christianity:

 

"The Fuhrer is deeply religious, though completely anti-Christian. He views Christianity as a symptom of decay. Rightly so. It is a branch of the Jewish race... Both [Judaism and Christianity] have no point of contact to the animal element, and thus, in the end, they will be destroyed. The Fuhrer is a convinced vegetarian, on principle. His arguments cannot be refuted on any serious basis. They are totally unanswerable."

 

Joesph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda

 

 

Adolf Hitler, who had read the Q'uran, admired Islam because of its military ideology, because Muslims worship a God that you have to fight and die for, and because of the Prophet Mohammed’s infamous hatred of the Jews, a characteristic shared by Hitler himself. Hitler's book 'Mein Kampf' shows striking parallels to the Q'uran.

 

In 1941 Hitler teamed up with Muslim Arab leader Amin al-Husseini who not only helped him in his plans to deport Jews by smuggling Nazi money into the Middle East, but also raised an SS division of Bosnian Muslims, an army specifically designed to fight on the side of the Nazis.

Many other leading Nazis were also admirers of Islam and after the war some of them,  including Goebbels’ aide, Johannes Von Leers and the SS officer, Otto Skorzeny  escaped to the Middle East and converted to Islam to start new lives. Von-Leers changed his name to Omar Amin and became a top official in the Egyptian information ministry.

 

Despite these historical facts, Hitler is often labelled as a Christian. This is absolute nonsense.  Hitler was not a Christian and had no respect for Christians or for the teachings of the Bible.

 

Hitler was also known to have associations with the occult. The infamous astrologer, hypnotist and clairvoyant, Erik Jan Hanussen was known to have lectured Hitler in charisma and public-speaking.

Some people do, especially the ones who criticise our faith. I've been told before that Hitler was a Christian by those who who wish to blame Christianity for all the ills in the World. I was just trying to give solid arguments to throw back at such people.

A thought just crossed my mind about Hitler. I have never read anywhere that he himself actually killed anyone. I find it rather interesting how he got so many to the things that happened during his time in power. He didn't actually kill any Jews, he taught Germans to hate Jews and they willingly did the killing... If someone can do that with educated Germans, one who is talented could do that with just about any group of people.
