Was Hitler a Christian? Can Christianity be Blamed for the Holocaust?

|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, 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.
