Author of Was Adolf Hitler a Bible Christian?
What follows are a few more reasons why I believe that Hitler was a Christian.
Hitler: On His Childhood
"I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals. As was only natural, the abbot seemed to me, as the village priest had once seemed to my father, the highest and most desirable ideal" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 1).
Hitler: On the Christian Social Party
"Not until my fourteenth or fifteenth year did I begin to come across the word 'Jew,' with any frequency, partly in connection with political discussions.... For the Jew was still characterized for me by nothing but his religion, and therefore, on grounds of human tolerance, I maintained my rejection of religious attacks in this case as in others. Consequently, the tone, particularly that of the Viennese anti- Semitic press, seemed to me unworthy of the cultural tradition of a great nation. ... I was not in agreement with the sharp anti-Semitic tone, but from time to time I read arguments which gave me some food for thought. At all events, these occasions slowly made me acquainted with the man and the movement, which in those days guided Vienna's destinies: Dr. Karl Lueger (Karl Lueger (1844-1910), mayor of Vienna and leader of the Christian Social Party) and the Christian Social Party. The man and the movement seemed 'reactionary' in my eyes. My common sense of justice, however, forced me to change this judgment in proportion as I had occasion to become acquainted with the man and his work; and slowly my fair judgment turned to unconcealed admiration. Today, more than ever, I regard this man as the greatest German mayor of all times. ... How many of my basic principles were upset by this change in my attitude toward the Christian Social movement! My views with regard to anti-Semitism thus succumbed to the passage of time, and this was my greatest transformation of all. ... Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 2).
"The unprecedented rise of the Christian Social Party... was to assume the deepest significance ..." (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3).
"In nearly all the matters in which the Pan-German movement was wanting, the attitude of the Christian Social Party was correct and well-planned" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3).
"The anti-Semitism of the new movement [Christian Social movement] was based on religious ideas instead of racial knowledge" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3).
"If Dr. Karl Lueger had lived in Germany, he would have been ranked among the great minds of our people" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3).
Hitler: Referring to Scripture
"Verily a man cannot serve two masters. And I consider the foundation or destruction of a religion far greater than the foundation or destruction of a state, let alone a party" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3). Note here that Hitler was quoting Matthew 6:24, which states in the Anointed Standard Translation: "No one is able to serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and he will love the other, or he will cleave to one, and he will despise the other."
"Hastily and indifferently, people tried to pass by the unpleasant truths, as though by such an attitude events could be undone. No, the fact that our big city population is growing more and more prostituted in its love life cannot just be denied out of existence; it simply is so. ...it is said with such terrible justice that the sins of the fathers are avenged down to the tenth generation. But this applies only to profanation of the blood and the race" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 10). Again, here Chancellor Hitler was referring to Deuteronomy 23:2-3. Hitler used the Luther Bible, which was based upon the Hebrew, and the Luther Bible in English says here: "A mongrel shall not enter into the Body Politic of the Master, even to the tenth generation shall none of his enter into the Body Politic of the Master. An Ammonite or a Moabite shall not enter into the Body Politic of the Master; even to the tenth generation shall none of them enter into the Body Politic of the Master, forever." The German Bible here used the word 'Mischling' for mongrel, or the Hebrew word mamzir. This German word can only mean mongrel and this Luther Bible was the Bible of Hitler and all those who would have heard his speeches or read Mein Kampf.
"The fight against Jewish world Bolshevization requires a clear attitude toward Soviet Russia. You cannot drive out the Devil with Beelzebub" (Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chap. 2). As in many of his speeches, Hitler here shows his vast Biblical knowledge by referring to Luke: "But some of them said, 'By Beelzebub, the chief of the demons, He cast out demons.' And others, tempting, were seeking a sign from Heaven from Him. But knowing the thoughts, said to them, 'Every government divided against itself is brought to ruin, and a house against a house falls. And if Satan is divided against himself, how will his government stand, because you say I cast out demons by Beelzebub? But if I cast out the demons by Beelzebub, your sons, by what do they cast out" (Luke 11:15-19 AST).
"But if out of smugness, or even cowardice, this battle is not fought to its end, then take a look at the peoples five hundred years from now. I think you will find but few images of God, unless you want to profane the Almighty" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 10). Hitler here is referring to the fact that the Bible says that Adamic, White, Aryan men were created in the image of God. He states that the process of race-mixing will destroy the purity of Adamic, Aryan men, and the mongrels that will be left are definitely not in the image of God. This statement should be read in light of the following quotation:
"Certainly we don't have to discuss these matters with the Jews, the most modern
inventors of this cultural perfume. Their whole existence is an embodied protest
against the aesthetics of the Lord's image"
Hitler: On Racial Purity
"What we must fight for is to safeguard the existence and reproduction of our race and our people, the sustenance of our children and the purity of our blood, the freedom and independence of the fatherland, so that our people may mature for the fulfillment of the mission allotted it by the Creator of the universe" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 8).
"Blood sin and desecration of the race are the original sin in this world and the end of a humanity which surrenders to it" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 10). Hitler here refers to the fact that through Cain mongrelization entered into the world, as is taught in the book of Genesis.
"The result of all racial crossing is therefore in brief always the following: (a) Lowering of the level of the higher race; (b) Physical and intellectual regression and hence the beginning of a slowly but surely progressing sickness. To bring about such a development is, then, nothing else but to sin against the will of the Eternal Creator. And as a sin this act is rewarded" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
"That this is possible may not be denied in a world where hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people voluntarily submit to celibacy, obligated and bound by nothing except the injunction of the Church. Should the same renunciation not be possible if this injunction is replaced by the admonition finally to put an end to the constant and continuous original sin of racial poisoning, and to give the Almighty Creator beings such as He Himself created?" (Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chap. 2). Hitler here shows his knowledge of mongrels as "uncreated beings" for the sin of racial poisoning leads to the existence of beings which the Almighty Creator did not create.
In a speech at Nuremberg on September 6, 1938, Hitler said: "But since we set as the central point of this perception and of this profession of belief the maintenance and hence the security for the future of a being formed by God, we thus serve the maintenance of a divine work and fulfill a divine will - not in the secret twilight of a new house of worship, but openly before the face of the Lord." Hitler here mentions the "being formed by God," meaning White, Adamic man who was formed in the image of God.
"A folkish state must therefore begin by raising marriage from the level of a continuous defilement of the race, and give it the consecration of an institution which is called upon to produce images of the Lord and not monstrosities halfway between man and ape" (Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chap. 2). Again, Hitler states that mongrels, the products of race-mixing, are not in the image of the Lord. He also shows his knowledge of the Biblical tenet that only White Adamics are men and all other created beings are animals.
"Peoples which bastardize themselves, or let themselves be bastardized, sin against the will of eternal Providence" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
Hitler: On Antichrist, Mongrel Jews
"The Jew has always been a people with definite racial characteristics and never a religion" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
"Due to his own original special nature, the Jew cannot possess a religious institution, if for no other reason because he lacks idealism in any form, and hence belief in a hereafter is absolutely foreign to him. And a religion in the Aryan sense cannot be imagined which lacks the conviction of survival after death in some form. Indeed, the Talmud is not a book to prepare a man for the hereafter, but only for a practical and profitable life in this world" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
"The best characterization is provided by the product of this religious education, the Jew himself. His life is only of this world, and his spirit is inwardly as alien to true Christianity as his nature two thousand years previous was to the great founder of the new doctrine. Of course, the latter made no secret of his attitude toward the Jewish people, and when necessary he even took the whip to drive from the temple of the Lord this adversary of all humanity, who then as always saw in religion nothing but an instrument for his business existence. In return, Christ was nailed to the cross, while our present-day party Christians debase themselves to begging for Jewish votes at elections and later try to arrange political swindles with atheistic Jewish parties-- and this against their own nation" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
"First, therefore, he goes about making up to the people for his previous sins against them. He begins his career as the 'benefactor' of mankind. Since his new benevolence has a practical foundation, that the left hand should not know what the right hand giveth; no, whether he likes it or not, he must reconcile himself to letting as many people as possible know how deeply he feels the sufferings of the masses and all the sacrifices that he himself is making to combat them" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
"But even more: all at once the Jew also becomes liberal and begins to rave about the necessary progress of mankind" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
"The personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
"And so he [the Jew] advances on his fatal road until another force comes forth to oppose him, and in a mighty struggle hurls the heaven-stormer back to Lucifer. Germany is today the next great war aim of Bolshevism. It requires all the force of a young missionary idea to raise our people up again, to free them from the snares of this international serpent..." (Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chap. 14). Hitler here agrees with Jesus in John 8 that the Jews are indeed of their Father the Devil and that they belong in the Lake of Fire with the Devil and all his messengers.
"With satanic joy in his face, the black-haired Jewish youth lurks in wait for the unsuspecting girl whom he defiles with his blood, thus stealing her from her people" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 11). Here Hitler states that the most powerful tool that the mongrel Jew uses against the White race is that of mongrelization or race-mixing.
Hitler: On Negroes
"It would be more in keeping with the intention of the noblest man in this world if our two Christian churches, instead of annoying Negroes with missions which they neither desire nor understand, would kindly, but in all seriousness, teach our European humanity that where parents are not healthy it is a deed pleasing to God to take pity on a poor little healthy orphan child and give him father and mother, than themselves to give birth to a sick child who will only bring unhappiness and suffering on himself and the rest of the world" (Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chap. 2). Hitler here shows his knowledge of the fact that Negroes do not contain the capacity to be indwelled by the Mentality of Separation, but only white Adamics were chosen by God for this purpose.
Hitler: On Morality
"Parallel to the training of the body a struggle against the poisoning of the soul must begin. Our whole public life today is like a hothouse for sexual ideas and stimulations. Just look at the bill of fare served up in our movies, vaudeville and theaters, and you will hardly be able to deny that this is not the right kind of food, particularly for the youth... Theater, art, literature, cinema, press, posters, and window displays must be cleansed of all manifestations of our rotting world and placed in the service of a moral, political, and cultural idea" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 10).
Hitler: On Atheism
In a speech at the Sportpalast on October 24, 1933, Hitler said: "Without pledging ourselves to any particular Confession, we have restored to faith its pre-requisites because we were convinced that the people need and requires this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out." This statement and the following quotes about paganism, Odinism, and other old Nordic religions show unequivocally that Hitler promoted only Christianity.
Hitler: On Paganism and Heathen Religion
On the 14th of October, 1941, Hitler said: "Nothing would be more foolish than to re-establish the worship of Wotan. Our old mythology had ceased to be viable when Christianity implanted itself ... I especially wouldn't want our movement to acquire a religious character and institute a form of worship. It would be appalling for me, if I were to end up in the skin of a Buddha."
"The characteristic thing about these people is that they rave about old Germanic heroism, about dim prehistory, stone axes, spear and shield, but in reality are the greatest cowards that can be imagined. For the same people who brandish scholarly imitations of old German tin swords, and wear a dressed bearskin with bull's horns over their heads, preach for the present nothing but struggle with spiritual weapons, and run away as fast as they can from every Communist blackjack" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 12).
Hitler: On Christianity
In a speech at Stuttgart on February 15, 1933, Hitler said that the desire of the National Socialist Government was to "fill our whole culture once more with a Christian spirit, and that not only in politics. We want to burn out the harmful features in our theatre and our literature."
In a speech at Hamburg on August 17, 1934, Hitler said, "The National Socialist State professes its allegiance to positive Christianity" (bekennt sich zum positiven Christentum).
In a speech at Koblenz on August 26, 1934, Hitler said, "National Socialism neither opposes the Church nor is it anti-religious, but on the contrary it stands on the ground of a real Christianity. And we have no other desire than to be true to that position. I know that there are thousands and ten of thousands of priests who are not merely reconciled to the State of today but who gladly give to the State their cooperation, and I am convinced that this cooperation will grow ever closer and more intimate. For their interests cannot fail to coincide with ours alike in our fight against the symptoms of degeneracy in the world of today, in our fight against Bolshevist culture, against an atheistic movement, against criminality, and in our struggle for a consciousness of a community in our national life, for the conquest of civil war and unrest, of strife and discord. These are not anti-Christian, these are Christian principles! And I believe that if we should fail to follow these principles, then we should not be able to point to our successes, for the result of our political battle is surely not unblessed by God."
Hitler delivered this prayer at the close of his speech at the Reichstag on February 20th, 1938: "In this hour I would ask of the Lord God only this: that, as in the past, so in the years to come He would give His blessing to our work and our action, to our judgment and our resolution, that He will safeguard us from all false pride and from all cowardly servility, that He may grant us to find the straight path which His Providence has ordained for the German people, and that He may ever give us the courage to do the right, never to falter, never to yield before any violence, before any danger."
"...we must pray to the Almighty not to refuse His blessing to this change and not to abandon our people in the times to come." Hitler was here recalling a speech made by a priest after World War I (Mein Kampf, Chap. 7).
"Even today I am not ashamed to say that, overpowered by stormy enthusiasm, I fell down on my knees and thanked Heaven from an overflowing heart for granting me the good fortune of being permitted to live at this time." (Mein Kampf, Chap. 5).
Hitler: On the German Christians
On July 19, 1933, five days after the Constitution for the United German Evangelical Church became law, Hitler wrote Reichbishop Mï¿½ller, "In spite of all hostility, history will one day bear witness that you and the German Christians have willed, helped forward, and finally affected one of the most decisive acts in the molding of the religious life of our people."
In a radio address on July 22, 1933, regarding reform of the churches, Hitler said, "But this will never be secured by petrified religious forces which have turned their backs upon the world and who counts as of no significance the phenomena and events of their day: it can be secured only through the forces of a living Movement. These forces I see primarily marshaled in that part of the Evangelical communion (Kirchenvolk) which in the German Christian Movement has consciously taken its stand on the ground of the National Socialist State - not in an enforced submission but in a living affirmation!"
Hitler: On Conviction
"A man does not die for something which he himself does not believe in" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3).
"I had so often sung 'Deutschland ï¿½ber Alles' and shouted 'Heil' at the top of my lungs, that it seemed to me almost a belated act of grace to be allowed to stand as a witness in the divine court of the Eternal Judge and proclaim the sincerity of this conviction" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 5).
"Only in the steady and constant application of force lies the very first prerequisite for success. This persistence, however, can always and only arise from a definite spiritual conviction. Any violence which does not spring from a firm, spiritual base, will be wavering and uncertain" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 5).
In a speech at Regensburg on June 6th, 1937, Hitler said: "So we go forward with the profoundest faith in God into the future. Would that which we have achieved have been possible if Providence had not helped us? I know that all the work of men is difficult and transitory when it is not blessed by this Omnipotence. But if this Omnipotence blesses a work, as it has blessed this work of ours, then men cannot destroy it. ... Today more than ever are we of this faith, for this new Germany stands, and clearly marked before it lies its path into the future."
"Heaven will smile on us again" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3).
"For the political leader the religious doctrines and institutions of his people must always remain inviolable; or else he has no right to be in politics, but should become a reformer, if he has what it takes!" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 3).
"The attack against dogmas as such, therefore, strongly resembles the struggle against the general legal foundations of a state, and, as the latter would end in a total anarchy of the state, the former would end in a worthless religious nihilism" (Mein Kampf, Chap. 10).
On June 27, 1937, in a speech at Wï¿½rzburg, Hitler said, "...I am convinced that men who are created by God should live in accordance with the will of the Almighty. However weak the individual may be in the last resort in his whole being and action when compared with the omnipotence and will of Providence, yet at the moment when he acts as this Providence would have him act he becomes immeasurably strong."
"It may be that today gold has become the exclusive ruler of life, but the time will come when man will again bow down before a Higher God" (Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chap. 2).
Hermann Gï¿½ring, like Hitler, was also deeply religious. He shows his Christianity by this and similar quotes: "God gave the savior to the German people. We have faith, deep and unshakable faith, that he [Hitler] was sent to us by God to save Germany."
Julius Streicher was the ninth child of a Roman Catholic primary school teacher, and he also became a school teacher in Nuremberg. When Hitler was released from prison in December 1924, Streicher hailed Hitler's return to politics as a "gift of God." Streicher published a newspaper entitled Der Stï¿½rmer, in which he discussed Jewish ritual murder, Jewish aims to destroy Christianity, and the fact that Jesus was not a Jew. Chancellor Hitler said the following of Streicher: "The main fighter for the DSP [Deutsch-Sozialistische Partei or German Socialist Party], as I have said, was Julius Streicher, then a teacher in Nuremberg. At first he, too, had a holy conviction of the mission and the future of his movement" (Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chap. 7).
Streicher wrote in an article in Der Stï¿½rmer: "If the danger of the reproduction of that curse of God in the Jewish blood is finally to come to an end, then there is only one way - the extermination of that people whose father is the Devil..."
Streicher's articles were always filled with Biblical references: "Only the Jews, he shouted, had remained victorious after the dreadful days of World War I. These were the people, he charged, of whom Christ said, 'Its father is the devil.'"
Both of these quotes of course are in reference to John 8:44, in which Christ said to the mongrel Herodian Jews: "You are of your father the Diabolical One, and the lusts of your father you wish to do. That one was a murderer from the beginning, and he has not stood in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own, because he is a liar, and the father of it" (AST).
Streicher also said: "Germans must fight Jews, that organized body of world criminals against whom Christ, the greatest anti-Semite of all time, had fought."
At Nuremburg, Streicher was convicted of "crimes against humanity," although his only activity during the war was publishing his newspaper which again served to educate the German people about truths such as Jesus not being a Jew. These were his last words: "Now it goes to God ... Purim Fest, 1946."
"No matter what human beings do I shall some day stand before the judgment seat of the Eternal. I shall answer to Him, and I know He will judge me innocent." Rudolf Hess (in a statement to the Nuremberg Tribunal)
"A Jew is for me an object of disgust. I feel like vomiting when I see one. Christ could not possibly have been a Jew. It is not necessary to prove that scientifically - it is a fact." Joseph Gï¿½bbels (speaking to Hitler)
Joachim Ribbentrop was Hitler's Minister of Foreign Affairs. While visiting King George VI, he twice saluted him, saying "Heil Hitler." During the Nuremberg trials, he said, "If in this cell, Hitler should come to me and say, 'Do this,' I would still do it." He was found guilty of all four major types of crimes and was the first to be hanged. These were his last words: "May God save Germany!"
Hans-Ulrich Rudel was Germany's most decorated soldier, receiving the Knight's Cross to the Iron Cross with Golden Oak Leaves and Swords and Diamonds, personally designed and presented by Adolf Hitler. He received this for his extraordinary heroism in a career that established him as the greatest aviator of all time. Shot down more than a dozen times, he fought until the last day of the war - even though he had lost a leg and had his other leg in a cast. He was the son of a German preacher and he himself remained an unrepentant Christian and National Socialist his whole life. These words are on a monument dedicated to him and his comrades: "Sacrificial Bravery Overcomes Death."
Gerhard Kittel was considered one of the world's foremost theologians both before and after the war. Even today, his Theological Dictionary of the New Testament is still widely used and respected. He willingly joined the Nazi Party, feeling it his Christian duty. Even though his activities during the war were limited to teaching and serving on educational committees, he was arrested and imprisoned by the French for seventeen months after the war. He wrote a defense for himself and concluded that race-mixing was wrong, citing the examples of Ezra and Nehemiah.
The misuse of the quotes of Alfred Rosenberg stands as the major reason why so many Americans have been deceived into thinking that National Socialism represented Nordic pagan beliefs instead of Positive Christianity. Hitler chose Rosenberg for propaganda purposes. However, Hitler also established a Reich Christian Church for the future of Germany. Hitler did not believe in pagan cults. Rosenberg himself wrote that Jesus was Nordic, aggressive, courageous, "a man of true Nordic character," a revolutionary who opposed the Jewish and Roman systems with sword in hand, bringing not peace but war (see Matthew 10:34-37). Rosenberg later went on to say that he favored a "positive Christianity." Any other statements that Rosenberg may have made or may have been reported to have made were not known to Hitler, for Rosenberg was careful to always assure Hitler that he was a Christian.
Houston Stewart Chamberlain
Houston Stewart Chamberlain, though born British, became a German citizen at an early age and wrote all of his popular books in German, including Foundations of the Nineteenth Century, one of most influential books in Germany prior to Mein Kampf. He was the son-in-law of Richard Wagner and a great ethnologist. A section of his book is devoted to proving that Jesus was not a Jew, and he concluded: "Whoever claimed that Jesus was a Jew was either being stupid or telling a lie ... Jesus was not a Jew." He also stated that, "... no other people was so well equipped as the Teutonic to hear this divine voice." By 1938, the book had sold more than a million copies. He wrote to Hitler in 1923, stating, "My faith in Germanism had not wavered an instant ... That in the hour of her deepest need Germany gives birth to a Hitler proves her vitality ... May God protect you!"
Party Platform #24
Party Platform #24 of The Program of the National Socialist German Worker's Party states: "We demand a freedom of religious confessions in this state, as long as they do not endanger the nation's existence or interfere with the moral sense of the German race. The NSDAP party argues for a positive Christianity, although it is not bound to any single confession. The NSDAP party fights against the Jewish- materialistic spirit in and around us. We are convinced that the healing process of our nation can only be continued on the basis of the principle that public welfare has priority over individual welfare."
Gottfried Feder was appointed by Adolf Hitler on February 14, 1923, to be the final judge of all questions relating to the Party Platform, including Point 24. He wrote: "The same may be said of all the coarse, stupid attacks on Christianity. Expressions such as 'Christianity has only done harm' merely show that the man who utters them has neither human nor political intelligence. One may indeed blame the [Catholic] Church ... but it is wrong to abuse in general terms the greatest phenomenon in human history because of the perversities and erroneous ideas and defaults of individuals. The Christian religion has uplifted and strengthened millions upon millions, and brought them to God by the way of suffering."
Die Germanische Revolution
Among Adolf Hitler's private papers was found after the war several handwritten sheets outlining a book he had intended to write which would have been entitled Die Germanische Revolution or The Germanic Revolution. He also conceived a book-cover which he sketched. It is clear from the outline that a great part of this book was to be committed to writing about the Bible, including an accurate account of the history recorded in the Old Testament and the true identity of the Israelites of the Old Testament as white people and also a detailed study of the laws in the Bible against race-mixing and the historical consequences of the violation of this law. What follows are excerpts from these outlines which have been reproduced and translated in the book, Hitler's Letters and Notes by Werner Maser. I.
