The German Enlightenment gave birth to several movements through the years. Three of the most trivial are Modern Humanism, Liberalism, and Nazism. These three movements have attempted to reduce the Bible into a compilation of fairy-tales. Then and now, Christians who believe the Bible is factual have been referred to as unenlightened or uneducated bigots by the biproducts of the German Enlightenment.
Nazism is anti-conservative and very liberal. Nazis referred to themselves as "The Children of the New Age of World Order." It was especially popular with educators, bureaucrats, and the press. During Hitler's rise and reign of terror, anyone who disagreed with Nazism was branded with the term "Conservative Reactionary." Hitler fired back at his critics calling them "The Dark Forces of Anarchy and Hatred." Being a Nazi in Hitler's day was politically correct. Nazism's official name was "The National Socialist Workers Party of Germany." Hitler and the Nazis wanted government-controlled education, health care, transportation, national resources, manufacturing, distribution, and law enforcement.
Nazis first demanded that no religion allow Jews into their folds. Eventually, Pagan animism became the state religion of the Third Reich and Christians were widely condemned as "right wing fanatics."
"Yes, indeed, I remember the Nazis and they weren't Republicans, or "right wing", or "patriots" or "militias". They were Socialist monsters." -- Thomas Colton Ruthford
"In Germany they first came for the Communists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me--and by that time no one was left to speak up."
-- Pastor Martin Niemoller, 1945
Nazis were evolutionists who desired to nurture mankind into a super race. They wanted everyone to eventually be bread into becoming blonde, blue-eyed caucasians.
"Whoever sees in National Socialism nothing but a political movement, doesn't know much about it.... We shall wash off the Christian veneer and bring about a religion peculiar to our race." -- Adolf Hitler
"Creation is not yet completed. Man must pass through many further stages of metamorphosis.... All creative forces will be concentrated in a new species. The two types of man, the old and the new, will evolve rapidly in different directions. One will disappear from the face of the earth, the other will flourish.... This is the real motive behind the National Socialist movement!" -- Adolf Hitler
Nazism was and is anti-Christian and anti-Semitic. I love the people who share the same ethnicity as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let's love the Jewish people as do we do our families and our fellow Christian Believers. I do ademently reject Nazism. Let us not be so swayed by what is considered politically correct in the 21st Century.
I do ask the Lord to help me forgive those of mankind who have forgotten these historical events who point the world in the same direction of 1930's Germany.
Hitler - born into a Jewish family, believed in evolution, Aryanist, embraced early Hindu scripture, fascinated with the occult, believed that darker skinned people were more closely related to apes than other humans, rejected the Holy Bible, nonChristian, nonFundamentalist
