As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice…
This is a statement in a speech held on April 12th 1922.
Hitler held many hysterical beliefs which not only include, God and Providence but also Fate, Social Darwinism, and ideological politics.
He spoke, unashamedly, about God, fanaticism, idealism, dogma, and the power of propaganda.
Hitler held strong faith in all his convictions.
He justified his fight for the German people and against Jews by using Godly and Biblical reasoning.
Indeed, one of his most revealing statements makes this quite clear:
“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.”
“My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter.
In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross.
As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice… And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.
-Adolf Hitler, in a speech on 12 April 1922 (Norman H. Baynes, ed. The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939, Vol. 1 of 2, pp. 19-20, Oxford University Press, 1942)
The Church in Germany in the 1930-ties, became a Church that fought for worldly power, justice and truth.
Is is quit similar for the World Council of Churches (WCC) today. They also claim they fight for “justice and truth”. Not so strange, the enemy is the same. The Jews.
The anti-Jewish movement that fight for “justice and truth” in the name of “god” has not changed.
The gospel is not about “social justice”. The National Socialists in Germany fought a noble fight with “Got mitt uns” in their belts. The last army of crusaders will have the same agenda. Today their are fighting for “Palestine”.
