Other than simply pointing out that your woefully absent knowledge of the facts, is sophomoric at best, I'll simply reply with; the Catholic Church is the single, largest, most financially giving, social organization that has ever existed on the planet. The uncountable good that has been done throughout history at least deserves a small thank you, dontcha think?

The typical followers behavior would be to try to get people to love God, not pronounce your hatred for him.
No one was thinking "wtf" when they read that, huh?
Hitler was a Hindu? LMAO. You can't pay for entertainment like this.
Benedictine monastery Swastika
Although Hitler's inspiration for the Nazi swastika is uncertain, it may have been influenced by the swastika displayed at the Benedictine monastery where Hitler served as an altar boy. Whenever Hitler attened mass, he had to pass beneath the Benedictine swastika graven in the stone escutcheon of the abbey portal. Considering that Hitler once wanted to become a Benedictine monk, it is possible that this swastika stuck in his mind and later influenced his design for the Nazi swastika.
I thought you were somewhat knowledgeable about Hitler. I guess not. I see you haven't even read the thread. The swastika does date pretty far back I think most people know that however no one knows where he got his inspiration for it there is a great chance it was close to his Christian roots.
I have read all of your posts which are nothing but hatred towards Christians and Jews alike. I understand where you are from and I believe I understand exactly who you try to influence.

It takes a real piece of work to claim to know where I am from who I am trying to influence and the feelings I have towards certain religions. You even go so far as to say you have read all 8,552 posts of mine. Sir/mam you are certainly full of it. I only say that because instead of attacking the factuality of my posts you attack my character I wonder is that a christian trait?

Who are you trying to convince us or yourself?
Neither. I don't care if you think he was a Christian, a Jew, a Hindu, or worshiped Zeus. I care what Jesus said. Jesus never commanded mass-murder or genocide. It's clear that Hitler didn't know Christ, and didn't have the Holy Spirit. Hell, I can say I'm a billionaire all I want to, I can proclaim it to everyone I meet till the day I die. Doesn't change my bank account.
Like the age old proverb says, "actions speak louder than words."

How do I feel about Jehova God? About Yeshua? I think that they individually, and together form the most AMAZING peoples EVER! I am constantly being reminded (through revelations, and quiet whispers from the Lord) of how WONDERFUL and PRECIOUS we are to Him! How WONDERFUL the ENTIRETY of CREATION is!! I can't fathom it all, and realistically, I don't WANT to. Then again, there are a lot of things that I didn't want to do, as a believer, however, one cannot escape the Lord once He becomes known to ye. I couldn't continue on in the ways in which I had become accustom. I, personally cannot understand how one can 'backslide,' unless one truly didn't believe in the first place. If one truly accepts the existence of Christ, then one cannot then turn his back on Christ, not without knowing exactly what would befall them. I thank the Man, that I found Him. Because He never lost track of me.
At ONE TIME Hitler stated he was a Christian, maybe on numerous occasions he stated it BUT he walked away from his belief, didn't he?
Hitler most def claimed to be a christian and wrote in the book mein kaumf that everything he does he does to glory god and christ. But...

At ONE TIME Hitler stated he was a Christian, maybe on numerous occasions he stated it BUT he walked away from his belief, didn't he? Just as Judas did - Hitler betrayed his faith. Of course he did ... so he was not a Christian from the time he became leader of Germany.
Judas was an apostle of Christ and follower until the spirit of Satan took him over and he betrayed Christ and this is what non believers like you can not understand......... because the Holy Spirit is not with you otherwise you would not argue this point and it would have been revealed to you.
Christians also have nothing to do with the occult and ANY who practice any of the various occult practices are NOT Christians. Actually Hitler was involved with the occult for many years even before he became leader of the Nazi party. So actually long before he put on that Nazi uniform - he was not a Christian.
Non-believers like you who enjoy slamming Christians by making weak attempts by attacking our faith with evil people who have claimed to be Christians but THEY WERE NOT and then twist the info to deceive others is childish and foolish.
So for the record...... anyone who claims to be a Christian BUT does not walk with Christ and follow his teachings..... then that person is NOT a Christian no matter what they did or who they were in the past. They can of course come back anytime once that person REPENTS, asks for forgiveness and walks with Christ.
I understand that you can't understand what I am saying because you don't believe. Heaven is not for everyone.
Matthew 7:13-14 - Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
As far as your claim that it is insulting to any sane person to believe any person can slaughter millions of humans and be championed as a good person. First I never claimed he was a good person nor have I championed him as one what I have said is he was a Christian. No sane person would equivocate being a Christian as being good.
No sane person would equivocate being a Christian as being good. Furthermore I would never equivocate a grown adult that believes in an imaginary friend that watches over them and punishes those who don't believe in it as entirely sane either.
A Christian is one who believes and accepts Christ Jesus as the Begotten Son of God and then acts upon that doctrine. The doctrine of Jesus does not and has never condoned murder or the cause of murder. Hitler was chancellor (Führer und Reichskanzler) for 13 years and had complete authority in matters of peace and war. You nor anyone can convince me that he, being as such, did not approve and conceal the murders of over ten million people. In doing so you have tried to lay this atrocity at the feet of Christianity by insisting that Hitler believed and acted upon the doctrine of Christ Jesus. That is exactly your accusation as shown in this thread and that is obscene to any Christian whether fundamental or not.
