“…My feeling as a Christian leads me to be a fighter for my Lord and Saviour. It leads me to the man who, at one time lonely and with only a few followers, recognised the Jews for what they were, and called on men to fight against them…As a Christian, I owe something to my people.” - Adolf Hitler

 "I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.." - Adolf Hitler

"...Salvation is of the Jews." - Yahshua HaMoshiach [Jesus] (John 4:22)

"The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: Therefore all whatsoever they bid you to observe, that observe and do..." - Yahshua HaMoshiach (Matthew 23:2-3a)

"Elohim (G-d) has not cast away His people whom He foreknew." - Rabbi Sha'ul [Apostle Paul] (Romans 11:2)

What advantage, then, does the Jew have, or what value is there in circumcision?Much in every way." - Rabbi Sha'ul [Apostle Paul] (Romans 3:1-2a)

The picture to the left shows Hitler praying spontaneously. He often did this in public, during speeches and of course at church.

“The culmination of all persecutions was masterminded by Hitler. Since Hitler was neither a Jew nor a Moslem, he was, in the eyes of the Jews, a Christian. (He had a Catholic background.) If a questioning Christian Gentile strongly resisted the idea that Hitler was a Christian, the Jew will answer that Hitler did not destroy these millions of Jews by himself. Thousands of Germans, Poles and others who called themselves Christians herded Jews onto trains or met them at sites of destruction. If you should have the opportunity to look through old World War II pictures, notice the Crusader’s Cross pinned to the Nazi uniform. The cross is the symbol of Christianity to the Jews.” - From the book I Became a Jew by Shira Sorko-Ram.

Hitler attending Catholic Church (Nazi Cult)

 "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so" -- Adolf Hitler

"A few days ago I was in Eisenach and stood on top of the Wartburg, where a great German once translated the Bible." -Adolf Hitler, in Schleiz, Thuringia, 18 Jan. 1927

 

[The great German Hitler spoke about was Martin Luther] This should come as no surprise to one who is familiar with Luther’s theology concerning the Jew.

 

“In sum, they (the Jews) are the devil’s children, damned to hell…The Jews got what they deserved.” - Martin Luther (1483-1536)

The Deeper Origin of Anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism was never born with the Nazi Regime. In fact a lot of what the Nazis did to the Jew had already been done by Christians. In 535 The Synod of Claremont passed a law that denied Jews the right to hold public office. In 1227 the Synod of Narbonne decreed that all Jews wear an oval badge as a mark of identification. In 1236 Pope Gregory ordered all church leaders to confiscate all Jewish books on the first Saturday of Lent. In 1555 a special charter was issued by the Pope that required all Jews to be confined to ghettos. Hitler merely adopted methods to deal with the Jews that had been carried out centuries before, but with the aid of technological means achieved unprecedented results.

 

The actual term “Anti-Semitism” was first used in 1873 in a pamphlet by Wilhelm Marr called Jewry’s Victory over Teutonism. His intention was to replace the German word Judenhass (Jew-Hatred) with a more politically correct and less offensive term.

 

Anti-Semitism goes as far back as ancient Egypt, when Pharaoh feared that the children of Israel would outnumber his own people. He initiated segregated living conditions (ghettos), hard labour (slavery) and infanticide (murder of all new-born males). Persecution and eradication of the only remaining Torah keeping tribe continued to flow throughout history. Textbook Anti-Semitism is described in the Book of Ester 3:8; “And Hamman said, There is a people scattered abroad and dispersed among the nation in all the provinces of your malchut (kingdom); and their laws are diverse from all peoples; neither do they keep the melech’s (King’s) laws: therefore it is not for the melech’s benefit to let them remain alive.” Adolph Hitler clearly understood the roots of anti-Semitism when one examines this true statement in his book, Mein Kampf; “The anti-Semitism of the new [Christian Social] movement[1] was based on religious ideas instead of racial knowledge.” The deeper reality is that Hitler and the Nazi party were Christians. Adopting their no tolerance stance toward Jews simply followed the faithful roots and past practices of the Church. One can easily see disturbing similarities with Hitler’s Nazi Youth and today’s Catholic Youth League.



[1] In context Hitler was referring to the Christian Social Party whose ideals appealed to his own ideology. Hitler used Christian based anti-Semitist thought to propagate the destruction of the Jewish people.

"The Catholic Church considered the Jews pestilent for fifteen hundred years, put them in ghettos, etc, because it recognized the Jews for what they were".... I recognize the representatives of this race as pestilent for the state and for the church and perhaps I am thereby doing Christianity a great service by pushing them out of schools and public functions." - -Adolf Hitler, 26 April 1933

"We were convinced that the people needs and requires this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out." - Adolf Hitler, in a speech in Berlin on 24 Oct. 1933

[This statement clearly refutes modern Christians who claim Hitler as favoring atheism.]  

Let's have a look at some more Muslim Nazi images.

Pius XII, in the course of his formal diplomatic duties, emerging from a  reception for the elected President of Germany in 1927 during the democratic and pre-Nazi Weimar Republic (right).

“In 1933 Pacelli found a successful negotiating partner for his Reich Concordat in the person of Adolf Hitler. Their treaty authorized the papacy to impose the new Church law on German Catholics and granted generous privileges to Catholic schools and the clergy. In exchange, the Catholic Church in Germany, its parliamentary political party, and its many hundreds of associations and newspapers "voluntarily" withdrew, following Pacelli's initiative, from social and political action. The abdication of German political Catholicism in 1933, negotiated and imposed from the Vatican by Pacelli with the agreement of Pope Pius XI, ensured that Nazism could rise unopposed by the most powerful Catholic community in the world -- a reverse of the situation sixty years earlier, when German Catholics combated and defeated Bismarck's Kulturkampf persecutions from the grass roots. As Hitler himself boasted in a cabinet meeting on July 14, 1933, Pacelli's guarantee of nonintervention left the regime free to resolve the Jewish question. Accordi ng to the cabinet minutes, "[Hitler] expressed the opinion that one should only consider it as a great achievement. The concordat gave Germany an opportunity and created an area of trust that was particularly significant in the developing struggle against international Jewry." The perception of papal endorsement of Nazism, in Germany and abroad, helped seal the fate of Europe.” – Excerpt from Hilter’s Pope by  John Cornwell

The author of this webpage is familiar with the work, The Myth of Hitler's Pope: Pope Pius XII and His Secret War Against Nazi Germany 

Here are some balanced home truths about this work that was principally published to counter Hitler’s Pope:

“David Dalin has written an entire book that misses the point by a whole country mile! As long as Pope Pius XII allowed Hitler to remain a Catholic, the Pope supported his actions, period, and end of story. There was no conspiracy, just failed responsibility, and lack of action. David Dalin's book, ‘The Myth of Hitler's Pope’ demonstrates very little except to try and defend the ridiculous.” - Gordon A. Stamper

"Most holocaust analysts do not defend Pius- See Abandonment of the Jews. Gilbert, The Holocaust. To simply cobble together a few statements of Jewish statesmen eager for Vatican recognition of Israel shows little." – Anonoumous

“…There are also on-going international court cases about the Vatican role in the Ustashe regime in Eastern Europe and missing Nazi gold taken from the teeth of Jews from that time. Then there is the scandal of the use of Vatican passports to allow Nazis to flee Europe as late as 1956 avoiding their due justice for their crimes against humanity.

What can be said is that Pius XII is maligned by being called "Hitler's Pope" since he did not act in collusion with the Nazis. Further, that some Jews were rescued, but evidence is that others were not when it was possible. Beyond that the Church acted in ways AFTER the war that did not indicate respect, justice or love for Jews given the scope of the tragedy known as the Holocaust. It took 20 more years before the Church could conclude (and not unanimously) that a new teaching was needed to "purify memory" in the Church leading to Vatican II and begin the still unfinished business of dismantling official anti-semitism…” - Alan Hoffman

If you're still attending any congregation that goes by the title of a church and follows any practice that cannot be traced back to Yahshua or the Jews, then you're still not 100% clear of Babylon. Her sins are piled up to the heavens. There will come a day when He wont wink at your ignorance anymore.

 

                   Pope Ratzinger

 

The latest head of the Church was a member of the Nazi Youth Party. Whether he's repented or not, surely his association with this movement as a boy should disqualify him to head a supposed religion of peace and goodwill. Apparently not...

 

“…Ratzinger’s Wehrmacht unit shot at allied pilots over Germany. We are supposed to believe that Ratzinger didn’t really mean to hurt anyone. Ratzinger’s response to the most overwhelming evil of our times was to go along with it.”

Early Church Fathers – The Foundation of Western Anti-Semitism

By Jason Jordan

Rabbi Yahshua and Rabbi Sha’ul were never recorded in the Scriptures as ever saying, “Abandon the synagogue for the church.” In their day the church was a sun-centered religion known as the Temple of Circe. Followers of Circe worshipped the sun god on the 25th of December, celebrated Easter and met in buildings fitted with spires and steeples to absorb the sun’s rays. Circe was not the name of congregations who followed Messiah Yahshua, but the name of the goddess-daughter of the Sun-deity Helios. The Messiah would have felt just as uncomfortable about changing the title of a synagogue to a church as a modern-day pastor would if the name of a Christian place of worship were to be changed to a den of HaSatan.

 

 

 The Creator’s unchanging view (Malachi 3:6-7) on superimposing foreign terminology (Joshua 23:7b), marshalling alien customs and using pagan objects to worship and honour Him can be studied in the Golden Calf incident. In particular take note of Exodus 32:5; “So when Aaron saw it (the Golden Calf), he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to YHWH. 

Though the word church, which signifies a particular religious group, appears many times in modern Bibles, it replaces nonspecific terminology such as “congregation,” “assembly,” or “gathering.” Early English translator, William Tyndale even used the word “churches” to describe heathen temples in Acts 19:37; For you have brought here these men, who are neither robbers of Churches (Temples), nor blasphemers of your female mighty One (Circe). The only difference between temple goers of Circe in biblical times and churches goers today is the level of ignorance of what is being truly worshiped. In Yahshua’s day the Samaritans believed they worshipped YHWH, but not according to the custom of the Jews. This is why Yahshua says to the Samaritan woman in John 4:22, “You (Samaritans) worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.”

 

The church was principally constructed to replace YHWH’s chosen people (Israel). To this day it is viewed as an entity completely separate from the Jews despite Isaiah 56:3’s declaration, “Do not let the son of the foreigner who has joined himself to YHWH speak saying, ‘YHWH has utterly separated me from his people (Israel).’”

 

Now let’s take a peek into the mindset of the Early Church Fathers and in their own words read their views on the people that Yahshua said Salvation is of (John 4:22) and Sha’ul said have much advantage (Romans 3:1-2).

 

St. John Chrysostom (344-407AD)

 

“Many, I know, respect the Jews and think that their present way of life is a venerable one. This is why I hasten to uproot and tear out this deadly opinion. I said that the synagogue is no better than a theatre…the synagogue is not only a brothel and a theatre; it also is a den of robbers and a lodging for wild beasts…”

 

Response: As pointed out, nowhere in Scripture was there ever a teaching to cease meeting together in a synagogue and commence meeting in a pagan “Temple of Circe” (Church). Temple prostitution was a characteristic of pagan temple worship and was never tolerated within a synagogue whose male and female occupants were segregated anyway. Yahshua and Sha’ul never attended a church or gave instruction to cease meeting in the same manner as in their day!

 

Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch (98-117AD)

 

“For if we are still practicing Judaism, we admit that we have not received God’s favour…it is wrong to talk about Jesus Christ and live like Jews. For Christianity did not believe in Judaism, but Judaism in Christianity.”

 

Response: The Scriptures say in Romans 11:18; “do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.” This is another reason why Yahshua says, “salvation is of the Jews.” (John 4:22) NOWHERE, and I mean NOWHERE in Scripture do you find the phrase, ‘salvation is of the Gentiles!’

 

Justin Martyr (135-161AD)

 

“We too, would observe your circumcision of the flesh, your Sabbath days, and in a word, all your festivals, if we were not aware of the reason why they were imposed upon you, namely, because of your sins and the hardness of heart. The custom of circumcising the flesh, handed down from Abraham, was given to you as a distinguishing mark, to set you off from other nations and from us Christians. The purpose of this was that you and only you might suffer the afflictions that are now justly yours…”

 

Response: (Regarding circumcision of the flesh) The circumcision of the heart is a Torah teaching that originally appeared in Deuteronomy 10:16; “Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer.”  The circumcision of the heart is not a New Testament teaching that replaced flesh circumcision. Sha’ul disputed the teaching of the flesh circumcision because it sent fear into the heart of the Gentiles and obscured the heart felt motive that should initiate it. Indeed circumcision, on its own, is worth nothing (1 Corinthians 7:19) without the circumcision of the heart that must precede it. Never is the act of circumcision described as an affliction, nor is it ever specifically required for Jews only. In fact circumcision is a seal of righteousness! Romans 4:11; “And he (Abraham) received the sign of circumcision, a seal of righteousness of the faith…” Sha’ul also describes physical circumcision as profitable if the recipient keeps the law (Torah) and as unprofitable if the recipient abandons the law (Torah) (Romans 2:25).

 

(Regarding Sabbaths) Nowhere in the Scriptures are any Sabbaths given as a burden. On the contrary, they were given as rehearsals and object lessons, which are to be a believer’s delight (Isaiah 58:13)! The Commandment to keep the Sabbath throughout all generations (Exodus 31:13) was given to the Hebrews and the foreigners (Egyptians) who dwelt among them at Mount Sinai. Leviticus 18:26; “You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you.” Watch a Sunday keeping Christian try and explain their way out of this one the next time you hear them say that the Commandments were just for the Jews. As a final note apply Isaiah 56:3b, which says, To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths and choose what pleases Me.” And then Isaiah 56:6, which says, “Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to the Lord (YHWH), to serve Him, and…Everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath.”

 

Origen of Alexandria (185-254AD)

 

“We may thus assert in utter confidence that the Jews will not return to their earlier situations for they have committed the most abominable of crimes, in forming this conspiracy against the Saviour of the human race…hence the city where Jesus suffered was necessarily destroyed, the Jewish nation was driven from its country, and another people was called by God to the Blessed election.” 

 

Response: Romans 11:1-2a; “I say then, did YHWH cast away His people? By no means! For I also am a Yisraelite, of the zera (seed) of Avraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. YHWH has not cast away His people whom he NEW AND CHOSE BEFORE HAND.” YHWH never once speaks of a newly chosen people that have replaced the former ones. Surely neither the Gentile nor the Samaritan could be these “other people” when we read statements from Yahushua like this one in Matthew 10:5b; “…Go not the way of the gentiles by staying away from pagan practices, and into any city of the Shomronim (Samaritans).”  Any foreigners or strangers who follow YHWH (through the example of Yahushua) are “grafted in” or “joined” to Israel. Isaiah 56:3; “Neither let the son of the ger (foreigner) that has joined himself to YHWH speak in this manner, saying, YHWH has utterly separated me from His people Origen’s statement is a perfect example of the emergence of “replacement” or “supersessionist” theology. Sha’ul who was an Israelite (Romans 11:1) and a lover of the law (Torah) (Romans 7:22) only identifies with the Gentile for the purpose of provoking his own people to jealousy, because of their acceptance of Yahushua as Messiah (Romans 11:13,14).

 

Saint Augustine (354-430AD)

 

“How hateful to me are the enemies of your Scripture! How I wish that you would slay them (the Jews) with your two-edged sword, so that there should be none to oppose your word! Gladly would I have them die to themselves and live to you!”

 

Response: As this above statement does not address anything scriptural I am at a loss to apply the bandage of Scripture to it.

 

Saint Augustine also wrote:

 

“The true image of the Hebrew is Judas Iscariot, who sells the Lord for silver. The Jew can never understand the Scriptures and forever will bear the guilt for the death of Jesus.”

 

Response: This is statement is very odd, considering that the Jews wrote every word of the Scriptures and that without a Hebraic understanding it cannot be fully realised.

 

Let’s have a look at some memorable words from the great protestant reformer, Martin Luther (1483-1536): “In sum, they (the Jews) are the devil’s children, damned to hell…The Jews got what they deserved.”

 

The Scriptures say that Gentile acceptance of Messiah will provoke the Jew to jealously (Romans 11:13,14), but this is because the Gentiles will also embrace the Torah that he came to fulfill.

 

The Early Church Fathers, having abandon, outlawed, suppressed and replaced YHWH’s chosen people and the modern church that still stubbornly follows and proclaims their lawless replacement theology will have no part in the world to come.

 

The biggest stumbling block to Greco-Roman replacement theology is the following verse sequence: Matthew 23:1-4; "Then Yahshua spoke to the multitude, and to his talmidim (disciples), Saying, The sophrim (scribes) and the Prushim (Pharisees) sit in Moshe’s kesay (seat of authority): All therefore that Moshe’s kesay will invite you to observe, that observe and do; but do not do after their mitzvoth: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens too grievous to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.”

 

Yahshua didn't have a problem with the scribes or the Pharisee’s instructions. And well he shouldn’t have, because their teaching lined up with the Torah as found in Deuteronomy 17:11; “According to the sentence of the Torah that they shall teach you, and according to the mishpat (judgment) that they shall tell you, you shall do: you shall not decline from the ruling which they shall show you, to the right hand, nor to the left.” The problem was with the way these teachers conducted their own lives. They would instruct righteously, but they themselves failed to live according to their own instructions. To them and anyone who teaches with authority the warning is made loud and clear in James 3:1; “My Yisraelite brothers, not many should be rabbis (master’s of Torah), knowing that we shall receive a stronger mishpat (judgment).”

 

The framework for teaching, instructing and ruling as YHWH intended was set down in the days of Moshe (Deuteronomy 16:18 & 17:9,10). A subsequent climate of hypocritical representatives of this framework did not give pagan priests and politicians the right to step in, chop up pieces of foreign religions and glue them together and call them the faith of YHWH. The Hebrews at the foot of Mount Sinai appropriated their own method of worshipping YHWH by building and bowing down to a golden calf and declaring it as a representation of their deliverer from Egypt (Exodus 32:5). This sincere act nearly cost the life of every Israelite man, woman and child.

 

Yes, YHWH is a gracious and Eternal King and He is long suffering, but He does eventually reach a point where He says, "That's enough; I will no longer accept strange fire from these people!!" Look at the examples of the Tower of Babel, Noah’s flood, the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the cleansing of Revelations.

 

If nothing else, this work is a call for serious Christians everywhere to lend an ear to the Jew. I'm not saying become a Jew. I'm just saying that they have the covenants, Sabbaths and Festivals and they have insight into the Scriptures that we can all draw on and learn from.

 

Let the very words from the pen of the Early Church Fathers expose the inner dark recesses of their own hearts and in turn shine light on the rotten foundation of the now wide-spread multi-denominational temple cult of Circe (the church).
