According to Hitler’s own words, he was in no way a Christian, but those who hate Christianity would like you to think he was. Indeed when he needed votes, Hitler himself wanted you to think he was a Christian — and that the Bible was written in German and that Jesus wasn’t a Jew.
Stu Burguiere of the “Wonderful World of Stu” took a look at Hitler’s relationship with the Church using his own words, concluding that Hitler was a Christian in the same way Stu is a gym rat — not at all.
Hitler needed German Christian voters, saying, “We do not want to battle against Christianity.” Historian Friedrich Timme saw through the Nazis’ pandering, stating: “Everyone who believes their grand promises, and indeed their Christian beliefs, is a fool. You should recognize them by the fruits of their deeds.”
In 1939, Hitler established the Institute for the Study of Eradication of Jewish Influence on German Church Life, which eliminated the Old Testament and decided that Jesus was actually appropriated from an old Germanic god, Krist.
He later said of the Church, “This organized lie has to be broken in such a way that the state becomes the absolute master.” Was Hitler worshiping Christ or competing with Him?
