Atheist Urban Legend: Hitler's "Christianity"

One of the godless crowd's favorite attacks on Christianity is the old atheist contention that Adolph Hitler was a Christian. A book of transcribed notes taken at meetings between Hitler and his staff, called "Hitler's Table talk", has been used to defend the notion that Hitler was in fact quite anti-Christian. Doubts about the reliability of the book have arisen, however, and atheists have used this to defend their position that Hitler was in fact a Christian (of the Roman Catholic faith). An atheist/humanist web article, dealing with "Hitler's Table Talk" and other quotations, both public and private, is linked here:

From the nobeliefs website:

There is really no need to go into a point-counterpoint arguement against the article. Here's why:

First and foremost, Adolph Hitler was a maniac with delusions of grandeur. If he'd been born 40 years later, he'd be Charles Manson's room mate. Whether it's in Mein Kampf, Hitler's Table Talk, or any of the hundreds of speeches Hitler gave, you're simply reading the ravings of a lunatic who was on par with syphilitic philospher Frederick Nietzche.

Second, and even more important, we know what a "Christian" really is, because Christianity has been defined authoritatively in God's Word, the Holy Bible.

From the Book of Acts, we have the definition of the word "Christian":

"The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch." Acts 11:26

The word 'Christian' came from the Greek word christianos, taken from the Roman word and used to define an "adherent" (follower) of Christos (Jesus).

And what does the 'follower' of Jesus do? Most of it is explained quite simply in the Book of Matthew, Chapter 22, verses 37-40:

Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

Jesus gave His followers one more commandment before He ascended to Heaven:

He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news (the Gospel of Jesus Christ) to all creation. " Mark 16:15

That's Christianity in a nutshell.

So, did Adolph Hitler love his neighbors as himself and preach the Good News of Jesus Christ? And why are we expected to believe Mein Kampf, which any half-wit knows was pure propaganda?

Was Hitler really a Christian simply because he claimed the title?

The answer is NO. Case closed.

Not only that, I'd like to add that NO atheist is going to define MY Christianity for me, based on some cherry-picker's knowledge of the Bible, and you shouldn't let these intellectually dishonest people get away with that kind of nonsense.

It's high time the godless crowd tried READING a Bible for a change.

'Nuff said.

Try no to let this guy get under you so bad. His own quotes are his undoing. The Anti-Christian makes claim Hitler was a Christian because he said:
In answer to that charge I should like to make before the German people the following solemn declaration:
1. No one in Germany has in the past been persecuted because of his religious views (Einstellung), nor will anyone in the future be so persecuted....

LOL LOL LOL Ya the jews can sure testify how well Hitler lived up to this declaration.

Here is the truth at the end.

"But on one point it is well that there should be no uncertainty: the German priest as servant of God we shall protect, the priest as political enemy of the German State we shall destroy."
-Adolf Hitler, a speech in the Reichstag on 30 Jan. 1939 [Baynes]

Hitler sought to make himself and the evil he followed the divine and as long as you agreed with him you were okay with him. If you said otherwise you got the gaschamber.
