Christmas with Hitler – He was a Christian and National Socialism was based on Christianity, NOT the occult!

Adolf Hitler joining 1941 Christmas event in the middle of German troopsContrary to popular belief based upon propaganda and disinfo, Hitler was a Christian and the National Socialism was Christian-based, and indeed, everyone had the right of “freedom of religion”.  Hitler did also not ban Christmas as some claim, nor was he an occultist.

On December 18, 1941, Hitler attended a Christmas party in Munich. These images were captured by Hugo Jaeger, Hitler’s personal photographer, who buried the photographs near Munich after the war, fearing they might be confiscated. After the war, Jaeger retrieved the pictures and sold them to “Life Magazine” who of course, used them for anti-Hitler propaganda purp

Through subterfuge and concealment, many of today’s Church leaders and faithful Christians have camouflaged the Christianity of Adolf Hitler and have attempted to mark him an atheist, a pagan cult worshipper, or a false Christian. However, from the earliest formation of the Nazi party and throughout the period of conquest and growth, Hitler expressed his Christian support to the German citizenry and soldiers. In the 1920s, Hitler’s German Workers’ Party (pre Nazi term) adopted a “Programme” with twenty-five points (the Nazi version of a constitution). In point twenty-four, their intent clearly demonstrates, from the very beginning, their stand in favor of a “positive” Christianity:

24. We demand liberty for all religious denominations in the State, so far as they are not a danger to it and do not militate against the morality and moral sense of the German race. The Party, as such, stands for positive Christianity, but does not bind itself in the matter of creed to any particular confession. It combats the Jewish-materialist spiritwithin and without us, and is convinced that our nation can achieve permanent health from within only on the principle: the common interest before self-interest.

Hitler’s speeches and proclamations, even more clearly, reveal his faith and feelings toward a Christianized Germany…The following words from Hitler show his disdain for atheism, and pagan cults, and reveals the strength of his Christian feelings:

“My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before in the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice…. And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows.  For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people…. When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom to-day this poor people is plundered and exploited.”  – Adolf Hitler, in his speech in Munich on 12 April 1922

[Note, “brood of vipers” appears in Matt. 3:7 & 12:34. John 2:15 depicts Jesus driving out the money changers (adders) from the temple. The word “adders” also appears in Psalms 140:3]

“It will at any rate be my supreme task to see to it that in the newly awakened NSDAP, the adherents of both Confessions can live peacefully together side by side in order that they may take their stand in the common fight against the power which is the mortal foe of any true Christianity.” – Adolf Hitler, in an article headed “A New Beginning,” 26 Feb. 1925

“We are a people of different faiths, but we are one. Which faith conquers the other is not the question; rather, the question is whether Christianity stands or falls…. We tolerate no one in our ranks who attacks the ideas of Christianity… in fact our movement is Christian. We are filled with a desire for Catholics and Protestants to discover one another in the deep distress of our own people.” – Adolf Hitler, in a speech in Passau, 27 October 1928, Bundesarchiv Berlin-Zehlendorf, [cited from Richard Steigmann-Gall’s]

“We are determined, as leaders of the nation, to fulfill as a national government the task which has been given to us, swearing fidelity only to God, our conscience, and our Volk…. This the national government will regard its first and foremost duty to restore the unity of spirit and purpose of our Volk. It will preserve and defend the foundations upon which the power of our nation rests. It will take Christianity, as the basis of our collective morality, and the family as the nucleus of our Volk and state, under its firm protection….May God Almighty take our work into his grace, give true form to our will, bless our insight, and endow us with the trust of our Volk.” – Adolf Hitler, on 1 Feb. 1933, addressing the German nation as Chancellor for the first time, Volkischer Beobachter, 5 Aug. 1935, [cited from Richard Steigmann-Gall’s The Holy Reich]

“Except the Lord built the house they labour in vain…. The truth of that text was proved if one looks at the house of which the foundations were laid in 1918 and which since then has been in building…. The world will not help, the people must help itself. Its own strength is the source of life. That strength the Almighty has given us to use; that in it and through it we may wage the battle of our life…. The others in the past years have not had the blessing of the Almighty– of Him Who in the last resort, whatever man may do, holds in His hands the final decision. Lord God, let us never hesitate or play the coward, let us never forget the duty which we have taken upon us…. We are all proud that through God’s powerful aid we have become once more true Germans.” – Adolf Hitler, in a speech in March 1933

[Note, “Except the Lord built the house, they labour in vain” comes from Psalms 127:1 ]

“The Government, being resolved to undertake the political and moral purification of our public life, are creating and securing the conditions necessary for a really profound revival of religious life…. The National Government regard the two Christian Confessions as the weightiest factors for the maintenance of our nationality. They will respect the agreements concluded between them and the federal States. Their rights are not to be infringed…. It will be the Government’s care to maintain honest co-operation between Church and State; the struggle against materialistic views and for a real national community is just as much in the interest of the German nation as in that of the welfare of our Christian faith. The Government of the Reich, who regard Christianity as the unshakable foundation of the morals and moral code of the nation, attach the greatest value to friendly relations with the Holy See and are endeavouring to develop them.” – Adolf Hitler, in his speech to the Reichstag on 23 March 1933

“We want honestly to earn the resurrection of our people through our industry, our perseverance, our will. We ask not of the Almighty ‘Lord, make us free’!– we want to be active, to work, to agree together as brothers, to strive in rivalry with one another to bring about the hour when we can come before Him and when we may ask of Him: ‘Lord, Thou seest that we have transformed ourselves, the German people is not longer the people of dishonour, of shame, of war within itself, of faintheartedness and little faith: no, Lord, the German people has become strong again in spirit, strong in will, strong in endurance, strong to bear all sacrifices.’ ‘Lord, we will not let Thee go: bless now our fight for our freedom; the fight we wage for our German people and Fatherland.'” – Adolf Hitler, giving prayer in a speech on May Day 1933

“National Socialism has always affirmed that it is determined to take the Christian Churches under the protection of the State…. The decisive factor which can justify the existence alike of Church and State is the maintenance of men’s spiritual and bodily health, for it that health were destroyed it would mean the end of the State and also the end of the Church…. It is my sincere hope that thereby for Germany, too, through free agreement there has been produced a final clarification of spheres in the functions of the State and of one Church.” – Adolf Hitler, on a wireless on 22 July, the evening before the Evangelical Church Election

“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.]

“The German Church and the People are practically the same body. Therefore there could be no issue between Church and State. The Church, as such, has nothing to do with political affairs. On the other hand, the State has nothing to do with the faith or inner organization of the Church. The election of November 12th would be an expression of church constituency, but not as a Church.” – Adolf Hitler, answering C. F. Macfarland about Church & State (in his book, The New Church and the New Germany)

“So we have come together on this day to prove symbolically that we are more than a collection of individuals striving one against another, that none of us is too proud, none of us too high, none is too rich, and none too poor, to stand together before the face of the Lord and of the world in this indissoluble, sworn community. And this united nation, we have need of it.” – Adolf Hitler, in Berlin, 01 May 1935

“This Winter Help Work is also in the deepest sense a Christian work. When I see, as I so often do, poorly clad girls collecting with such infinite patience in order to care for those who are suffering from the cold while they themselves are shivering with cold, then I have the feeling that they are all apostles of a Christianity– and in truth of a Christianity which can say with greater right than any other: This is the Christianity of an honest confession, for behind it stand not words but deeds.” – Adolf Hitler, speaking of the Winter Help Campaign on 5 Oct. 1937

National Socialism is not a cult-movement — a movement for worship; it is exclusively a ‘volkic’ political doctrine based upon racial principles. In its purpose there is no mystic cult, only the care and leadership of a people defined by a common blood-relationship…. We will not allow mystically-minded occult folk with a passion for exploring the secrets of the world beyond to steal into our Movement. Such folk are not National Socialists, but something else– in any case something which has nothing to do with us. At the head of our programme there stand no secret surmisings but clear-cut perception and straightforward profession of belief. But since we set as the central point of this perception and of this profession of belief the maintenance and hence the security for the future of a being formed by God, we thus serve the maintenance of a divine work and fulfill a divine will– not in the secret twilight of a new house of worship, but openly before the face of the Lord…. Our worship is exclusively the cultivation of the natural, and for that reason, because natural, therefore God-willed. Our humility is the unconditional submission before the divine laws of existence so far as they are known to us men.” – Adolf Hitler, in Nuremberg on 6 Sept. 1938.”

[Christians have always accused Hitler of believing in pagan cult mythology. Here he clearly expresses his stand against cults and reinforces his Christian views.]

“Thus one of Europe’s most serious crises will be ended, and all of us, not only in Germany but those far beyond our frontiers, will then in this year for the first time really rejoice at the Christmas festival. It should for us all be a true Festival of Peace….” – Adolf Hitler, in Berlin, 05 Oct. 1938

[This statement disputes some who claim that Hitler outlawed Christmas.]

“If positive Christianity means love of one’s neighbour, i.e. the tending of the sick, the clothing of the poor, the feeding of the hungry, the giving of drink to those who are thirsty, then it is we who are the more positive Christians.  For in these spheres the community of the people of National Socialist Germany has accomplished a prodigious work.” – Adolf Hitler, in his speech to the “Old Guard” at Munich on 24 Feb. 1939

12 Responses to Christmas with Hitler – He was a Christian and National Socialism was based on Christianity, NOT the occult!

  1. KRISTY R. says:

    I remember reading a few years back (before I was introduced to the idea that with everything else we’ve been lied to, the things taught about Hitler could be added to that list) where Hitler mentioned how the US had treated the Mormons in the early 1800’s. I remember being suprised at his stand against what was done, because of what I had been taught about him. I wish I could find that quote, do you know to what I am referring? He was talking about America’s “so called” freedom of religion and how wrong the US had been to persecute or allow the persecution of the Mormons BASED on their religion. I’d be really interested in reading that speech in context. thanks!

    • Hi Kristy! Thanks for your comment / question. I have read many of Hitler’s speeches, some of which were very critical of Roosevelt for his hypocrisy on many issues, but I don’t recall Hitler specifically mentioning the Mormons. He may well have done so, but my searches have revealed nothing so far. On the other hand, however, the Mormons did seem to have high praise for Hitler according to a number of articles I came across. Anyways, I will keep my eyes and ears open for that, and will also ask some of my friends if they have come across such statements.

  2. Kurt says:

    This article and these quotes make it eminently clear that Adolf Hitler and the National Socialists were not pagans or occultist as is constantly repeated by the likes of the History Channel, et al. My father, grandfather and many uncles all campaigned as soldiers for the Third Reich and they were all Christians. Perhaps not the Universalist Joel Osteen or Jimmy Swaggart type we are accustomed to in America, but true Israelite Christians nonetheless. The women in my family who also lived in Germany during the Reich years were never prevented from worshipping or attending church services. I have in my possession my mother’s confirmation certificate from a church in Frankfurt on the Oder from 1942 which has both Church Insignia and Swastika emblazoned on it.
    After having studied, although only cursorily to this point, both WWII history as well as Covenant Theology I would say that the society that existed in Germany between 1933 and 1945 was the closest to Biblical ideals that the modern world has known. Thank you for this honest and courageous article.

  3. SazzyLilSmartAzz says:

    Happy New Year to you my friend and may our Lord and Savior be with you as you spread the truth.

    • Thank you so much sister! I really appreciate it. May He be with you as well, and I pray that many more hearts, minds and eyes be opened to these truths in the coming New Year! 🙂

  4. Linda Klassen says:

    The LORD is still working wonders in the earth! One of the greatest works He is doing in our day, is blasting through the lies and deceptions, not merely of the last century or so, but of thousands of years, exposing such Truth that the ‘Jews’ who gnawed away at Germany from within and through their agents running the governments of Britain, America, Russia, Poland, France,, devastated a noble nation, are none other than the mongrelized residue of Jacob/Israel’s wicked brother ESAU. Both the Old and New Testament warned us of this perpetual pestilence, even that they would deceive the entire world by impersonating true Israel (Revelation 2:9 & 3:9), falsely claiming the identity of ‘Judah’ by calling themselves by the 18th century English language invention, ‘Jews’.

    It was also the machinery of the Jewish owned and controlled media/press that proffered the vile lies and invented myths about Hitler, the Nazis and the German people and have profitted obscenely from the ‘holocaust industry’ they fabricated, turning the whole world against the real victims, the German Volk and the leader who most succeeded in rescuing them from the chains of bondage the ‘Jews’ had forged for them in their own homeland!

    Christ is shredding the veil of deception, exposing the ‘synagogue of satan’ at work in every nation, and as He does, Hitler, the Nazis and the German Volk are being vindicated. More and more people worldwide are learning the Truth about ‘Hitler’s Germany’, and they are passing the Truth on to still more people. Your site, my friends, is one of His messengers bringing about the victory of His Truth over the satanic lies of the Edomite pestilence, which is soon to be utterly purged from the earth, never to plague mankind again!

    Thank you for faithfully serving Christ and your fellow man by searching out and speaking out the Truth! The LORD bless you mightily and prosper your work in making the Truth known.

    The Führer was a good person.

    I agree with you. I’ve been lied to. I love your website.

    With that in mind i’m a devout Christian and see that our current president claims he is a christian in a lot of speeches but isn’t. Do you have any proof that our Hitler was a christian of a specific church? Do we have his baptismol record? Do we have his confirmation papers? Do we have any accounts of him attending church on sundays?

    • Hello and thanks for your comments and questions. As to current or contemporary US Presidents or Canadian or British Prime Ministers for that matter, they can claim to be Christian all they want, and even go to church regularly, but that does not make them followers of Christ. Their hypocrisy is obvious. Christ did not say “you shall know them by what church they attend” nor “you will know them by their baptismal records”. He said, “Ye shall know them by their fruits”. Matthew 7:16

      Adolf Hitler: “If positive Christianity means love of one’s neighbour, i.e. the tending of the sick, the clothing of the poor, the feeding of the hungry, the giving of drink to those who are thirsty, then it is we who are the more positive Christians. For in these spheres the community of the people of National Socialist Germany has accomplished a prodigious work.” – in his speech to the “Old Guard” at Munich on 24 Feb. 1939

      “Positive Christianity” was the basis of National Socialism. They were inseparable, and the proof is in the marvellous social state he built, and how he too drove out the money changers.

      Please also see my other post on this topic: Hitler was a Christian and felt it was his moral duty to oppose “Jewish influence”

      It is known fact that he was raised Catholic as a child, and it has been said that he desired to be a priest when he grew up, and that he could deliver sermons at age 7. I will have more about this in a future post debunking the “occult” claims, so stay tuned for that.

      In his book “Mein Kampf” and later on too, he was critical of both the Protest and Catholic Church for varying reasons, but mainly regarding what they were not doing for their people, and also, when they (or individuals within the church) overstepped their mandate and intruded on Germany’s internal political affairs. In his adult life, from my reading, he did not advocate for one branch over the other, and was non-denominational, but his faith remained unshakable to the end, as was his conviction that he was acting appropriately and morally correctly on behalf of his people, and in accordance with God’s will.

      Hitler Christian

      • PS After some further thought on this, I am also reminded that it was Hitler who from the outset, and with all sincerity sought peace with Germany’s neighbours, and to avoid war. But it was they who wanted war at all cost and longed for it, and did all they could to provoke Germany. I think of the many times he “turned the other cheek” to the enemy, when they mocked and scoffed and slapped him down personally, and when they later attacked Germany. Time and time again he was charitable. Only when every effort had been made to bring them to reason failed, and after numerous assaults did he finally fight back. He was a lover of children, animals and the environment too, and he regretted all loss of life and hoped to avoid it if at all possible. He knew war and death very well from WWI. Hitler did not intend have another world war or to take over the world. Nor did he have any “genocidal plans”, but the allies did!
