I often read Leftists who state things such as Hitler was a Christian, etc., or that Nationalism today is just like the Nazis of yesterday, etc. The following is from the "Handbook For Schooling The Hitler Youth" and proves that Nazi Germany was opposed to Christianity: "Even today the racial ideas of National Socialism have implacable opponents. Freemasons, Marxists, and the Christian Church joins hands in brotherly accord on this point. The world-wide order of Free Masons conceals its Jewish plans for ruling the world behind the catchword 'mankind' or 'humanity'. Masonry can take as much credit for its effort to bring Jews and Turks into the fold as does Christianity itself. Marxism has the same goal as Freemasonry. In this case, to disguise its real intentions, the slogan equality, liberty and fraternity is preached. Under Jewish leadership, Marxism intends to bring together everyone who bears the face of man. The Christians, above all the Roman Church, reject the race idea with the citation: Before God all men are equal. All who have the Christian belief, whether Jews, bush negroes or whites, are dearer to them and more worthwhile than a German who does not confess Christianity. The one binding bond, above and beyond all restrictions, is the Belief which alone brings salvation." Observations from this quote: (1) The publishers of this book for Hitler Youth saw Christianity as antithetical to Nazi ideals. (2) I find it curious that the Nazis linked up the Marxists, Freemasons, and Christians all together as globalizing agents trying to unify mankind. (2b.) Many Christians also believe in Freemasonic and Marxist and even Jewish plots to take over the world or change it into a One World Government. (3) The Nazi Handbook summarizes the unity in the Gospel pretty beautifully: "Before God all men are equal. All who have the Christian belief, whether Jews, bush negroes or whites, are dearer to them and more worthwhile than a German who does not confess Christianity. The one binding bond, above and beyond all restrictions, is the Belief which alone brings salvation."
