HITLERS SWASTIKA , NAZISM and SELF IDOLATORY over JESUS CHRIST , THE CROSS and CHRISTIANITY :
Was Adolf Hitler a follower of Jesus Christ ( Christian ) ?
This is the question that many have attempted to answer and many have incorrectly answered , either deliberately or through a lack of knowledge . So , just how do we find out if Adolf Hitler was a follower of Jesus Christ ( Christian )?
In most cases to find out something about a person it is important and essential to study the person under scrutiny and so in this case we shall take a look at and hear exactly what Hitler had to say about Jesus Christ.
In 1925/26 Hitler published his book " Mein Kampf " ( English: My Struggle or My Battle) volumes 1 and 2. Although , mainly political in content , for a book of such a title and significance there is no mention of Adolf Hitler being a follower of Jesus Christ ( Christian ) .
Given that Jesus Christ said the following concerning His followers Mathew 10;32 "So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven ."
Strangely , " Mein Kampf " ( English: My Struggle or My Battle) is void of any such reference and confession of Jesus Christ . Surely , a true follower of Jesus Christ would be only to eager to confess and acknowledge Jesus Christ with this promise that if we confess Him then He will acknowledge us ?
Dark and Essex wrote :
Mein Kampf has few passages which in any way refer to religion , none that refer to Hitler's own personal religion , or the the teaching of the Bible , nor any branch of Christian teaching.
The War Against God , Dark and Essex , pages 147-171
So , if Adolf Hitler failed to mention and confess Jesus Christ in a book about his personal struggles and battles is there any evidence to demonstrate what he thought about Jesus Christ and who He is ? Well , yes there is . Hitler told Martin Niemoeller........ http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/GERniemoller.htm.......... in 1934...........
Adolf Hitler :
" Jesus Christ was only a man ,and a jew to boot . Why shouldn't I , who am more powerful than Christ , and who am able to be much more helpful than He - why shouldn't I have the right to establish a new dogma for the church ?"
Leo Stein , I was in hell with Niemoeller , New York ; Fleming revel ,18492 , p90
CLEARLY , Adolf Hitler is demonstrating that he is not a follower of Jesus Christ but is presenting himself as above Jesus Christ and before Jesus Christ . Therefore making himself (Adolf Hitler) God . Here is what the Bible says about Jesus Christ in relation to what Hitler denied about Jesus Christ .
Gospel of JOHN 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word (Jesus Christ), and the Word (Jesus Christ) was with God, and the Word (Jesus Christ) was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life,a and the life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
So CLEARLY , The Word , Jesus Christ , is God and not just a man . Yes , he became a man but He was not just a man as claimed by Hitler .
Gospel of MATHEW 1:23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"--which means, "God with us."
PHILIPPIANS 2:5-11 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,a 6who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant,b being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
It must also be noted that Jesus Christ is the head of the church ( followers of Jesus Christ ) and it is He who is sets and makes the rules .
EPHESIANS 5:23b Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Adolf Hitler , as well as denying the deity of Jesus Christ and attempting to make himself God said the following ....................Adolf Hitler " My aim is to make Germany the only power in the world , I must , therefore , eliminate any kind of sickness , and I consider the sentimental feeling for Christianity as a kind of mental sickness ."
Leo Stein , I was in hell with Niemoeller , New York ; Fleming revel p 91 .
CLEARLY , from his own mouth , Hitler would be , as part of his agenda , trying to eliminate Christianity because , according to him , it is a "Mental Sickness ."
The answer to the above question .............................................................
"Was Adolf Hitler a follower of Jesus Christ ( Christian )?"
based on what Adolf Hitler said Himself has to be a resounding "NO."
