|Hitler Claimed to be a Christian… The Nazi Party Platform Endorsed “Positive” Christianity… The Churches Supported Hitler… Christians Have Always Hated Jews… Germany was a Christian Country… The Nazis were Baptized Christians… Martin Luther Attacked the Jews… Christians are Intolerant... Christian Anti-Semitism Led to the Holocaust…|
Many Christians are unaware of how these and other arguments are being used in the culture wars to link Christians to Hitler and demonize them as a menace to American democracy.
Relying on the bible as the Word of God, Joseph Keysor’s Hitler, the Holocaust, and the Bible responds to deceptive attacks on Christianity. The widely misunderstood question of what a Christian is is clarified according to scripture, and hatred and cruelty of any sort are shown to be contrary to the message of Christ. It studies the failure of German Christians — with rare exceptions — to stand for Christ, and shows that blind obedience to Hitler was contrary to biblical Christianity.
Also examined is the secular nature of Hitler’s thought. Hitler’s hostility to Jewish-inspired Christianity is shown, and his philosophical roots in German philosophy, secular racial anti-Semitism, and German interpretations of Darwinism are explored. It was human wisdom, not the Bible, that opened the door to Hitler.
As Hitler the Holocaust and the Bible was quite long and tried to deal with many things in one volume, someone suggested dividing it into parts – hence the second book. It is a complete rewrite of the first book.
This is intended to be part one of a two book work. It deals with deals with religious questions and spiritual questions, such as:
~ the New Testament and antisemitism. The New testament does not in teach hatred of Jews or of anyone else
~ the spiritual origins of the Jews, and the spiritual nature of anti-Judaism: God’s use of the Jewish people as an instrument of revelation has made them the focal point of intense spiritual warfare.
~ the problem of Christian antisemitism. Why have people who claim to be Christians ignored so many New Testament teachings to practice hatred, cruelty, and murder?
~ Hitler’s religious, quasi-religious and philosophical beliefs: It is not hard to demonstrate that Hitler had no interest in conventional Christian doctrines, but espoused radical new ideas unheard of before the modern era. Yet, his ideology does contain unmistakable religious qualities.
