Did Adolf Hitler and the Nazis Go to Hell?

The answer to this fundamental question appears to be obvious and straightforward. Nazis and their allies (the Axis Powers) grossly violated one of God’s commandments – ‘You Shall Not Kill’ by murdering millions of Jews and individuals of other nationalities.

However, this is only one side of the matter. There is another side. On the Easter front, Germany and its European saved the Christian Church and the whole Christian civilization from being destroyed (annihilated, actually) by the Bolshevist Soviet Union.

Sending the “soldiers of God” (who they essentially were) who won the “holy war” (which in many aspects it was) to Hell would have been grossly unfair and thus highly unlikely.

Consequently, although we can never be 100% sure where the particular soul ended up in the afterlife – in Heaven, Hell or somewhere else – it is highly unlikely (practically impossible) that Nazis that made a contribution to victory in that existential war went to Hell.

It is far more likely that their souls currently reside in Purgatory or, possibly, in an entirely different place which is neither Heaven nor Hell (the Valhalla of sorts).

 

Why Did God Allow Nazis to Exterminate Six Million Jews?

Six million of His chosen people have been shot or gassed – a mass murder of truly monstrous proportions that could have been easily prevented. But God did not save His chosen people. Why?

For the very same reason – God respects the human Freedom of Will unless the very existence of the Christian civilization is at stake. True, Holocaust was a horrible crime against humanity, but it did not constitute an existential threat to the Church and the Christian civilization. So He did not intervene.  

 

 

Why Didn’t God Allow the Nazi Germany to Win the War?

In the fall of 1941, Hitler was literally days away from winning the war on the Eastern front and the whole war in Europe. But he let the practically inevitable victory to slip through his fingers, his blitzkrieg to be transformed into a war of attrition on two fronts which he was bound to lose – and ultimately lost. And God allowed it to happen. Why?

The answer is simple – because God respects human Freedom of Will. And thus allows an individual – including Adolf Hitler – to make even disastrous mistakes. And reap the consequences.

God did not care whether Adolf Hitler won World War II or not – all He cared about was whether he prevents the Soviet Union from destroying the Christian Church and the whole Christian civilization.

And thus provided the Nazis with just enough support to fulfil this Divine Mission. Which was enough to save the Church and the whole Christian civilization – but not sufficient to win the Second World War. 

Why did the Omnipotent God Allow the Nazis to Come to Power?

It is very important to always remember that although God is omnipotent, He has no other hands but ours.

Although Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor on January 30th, 1933, Nazis came to power (i.e. established their dictatorship) a month later (on February 28th), when German President Paul von Hindenburg issued the famous decree Verordnung des Reichspräsidenten zum Schutz von Volk und Staat (Decree of the Reich President for the Protection of People and State).

This decree was issued the next day after the infamous Reichstag Fire. Contrary to both Nazi and anti-Nazi propaganda any impartial investigator would quickly conclude that the crime was committed by a lone arsonist – a clinically insane pyromaniac (and a Dutch Communist) Marinus van der Lubbe.

In other words, for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis it was an unbelievable stroke of luck that allowed them to seize the absolute power in Germany, implement sweeping political, economic and social reforms and create the Third Reich.

Those who believe in omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent God (and Christians do), do not believe in luck – good or bad. Consequently, they view each “stroke of luck” (whether “good” or “bad”) as the Act of God.

Therefore, every genuine Christian can make only in conclusion – that God for some reason provided absolutely vital assistance to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Vital for seizing absolute power and Germany and transforming the Weimar Republic into the Third Reich.

The reason is actually obvious. By 1933 it was painfully obvious that the Soviet Union (and its leader Joseph Stalin) were well on their track to invading, conquering and occupying Europe and the whole Christian civilization, destroying them (and the Christian Church) and replacing them with the alternative civilization – global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

And the only force capable of stopping the Soviet Union and thus saving the Christian Church and the whole Christian Civilization was the Nazi Germany.

That was the only reason why the Almighty God allow the Nazis to come to power, implement sweeping political, economic, social and military reforms and transform the democratic Weimar Republic into the totalitarian Third Reich, make Germany a political. Economic and military superpower, score truly miraculous military victories and occupy huge territories in the West and in the East.

 

 

 

Who Did the Western Allies Serve – God or Devil?

Again, the answer to this question is neither simple nor straightforward. On the one hand, the Western Allies (the USA, Great Britain, France, Canada, Australia, etc.) fought to liberate Western Europe (directly) and Eastern Europe (indirectly) from brutal and murderous Nazi occupation.

And thus put an end to mass murders and other crimes being committed by the Nazis on almost daily basis (mostly in Eastern Europe). Which was, obviously, a very important service to God.

On the other hand, Western Allies were the allies of the Soviet Union (i.e., of Joseph Stalin) who fully intended to conquer the world, destroy the global human civilization and replace it with an alternative civilization – global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Which was, obviously, a very important service to the Devil (because ultimately it would have established a genuine Hell on Earth).

Still, by invading and occupying Western Europe (including Western Germany) with mighty military force, by manufacturing a gigantic fleet of strategic bombers (B-17s, B-24s, Lancasters and especially all-but invincible at the time B-29 plus highly efficient escort fighters – P-51s and P-47s) and, what was the most important, by developing and detonating the first atomic bomb (and later using it against the Japanese cities), the Allies created a very powerful deterrent for Stalin’s ambitions.

Which ultimately prevented the latter from achieving his Satanic (literally) objectives. And thus provided a vitally important services for the Christian God.

Consequently, the only correct answer to this fundamental question is this: actions of the Soviet Union (like those of many other people) served both God and Devil. But by preventing Stalin from destroying the Christian Church and the whole Christian civilization, the Allies served God far more than they served Devil.

 

Who Did the Soviet Union Serve – God or Devil?

The answer to this question is also not as simple or straightforward as it might seem at first glance. On the one hand, the Soviet Union fought to liberate its territories and East European nations from the brutal German occupation and thus put an end to mass murders and other crimes committed by the Nazis. Which was, obviously, a vital service to God.

It should be noted, however, that the Soviet Union provoked these very mass murders and other crimes by instigating large-scale guerilla activities on the occupied territories of the Soviet Union, Poland, etc.

And, of course, the Soviet Union (and personally Joseph Stalin) fought to conquer Europe and the whole world, annihilate the Christian Church, destroy the global Christian civilization and replace it with the alternative civilization (global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics). Civilization based on the atheist Bolshevist ideology totally incompatible with Christianity.

Consequently, the only correct answer to this fundamental question is this: actions of the Soviet Union (like those of many other people) served both God and Devil. But as the USSR constituted an existential threat to the Christian Church and the Christian civilization, its actions served Devil far more than they served God.

 

Who Did the Nazis Serve – God or Devil?

The answer to this fundamental question appears to be obvious and straightforward. Nazis and their allies (the Axis Powers) grossly violated one of God’s commandments – ‘You Shall Not Kill’ by murdering millions of Jews and individuals of other nationalities.

National-socialist ideology was fundamentally incompatible with Christianity and the Nazis persecuted the Christian Church (especially in Poland). Consequently, they obviously served the Devil.

However, this is only one side of the matter. There is another side. On the Easter front, Germany and its European allies – Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Croatia and the Spanish ‘Blue Division’ (which included 1,000 Portuguese volunteers) – fought to save the Christian Church and thus the whole Christian civilization from being destroyed (annihilated, actually) by the Bolshevist Soviet Union. Which obviously meant serving God, not Devil.

The Bolshevist ideology that Joseph Stalin used to conquer the world, destroy the global human civilization and replace it with an alternative civilization – global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – was even more incompatible with Christianity than national-socialism.

Adolf Hitler and Nazis believed in the omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent God that shared some features with the Christian God. Bolsheviks were atheists and thus denied the very existent of God – any God.

While the Nazis did persecute the Church, they signed concordats with both Catholic and protestant Churches and used violence only when they believed that the other side violated the terms of these agreements by getting involved in politics.

The requirement to stay out of politics did place serious restrictions on what the Christian clergy can say in public, but the Nazis never intended to destroy the Church (Catholic or Protestant).

The Bolsheviks completely destroyed Catholic and Protestant Churches in the Soviet Union and were well on their way to do the same with the Russian Orthodox Church. Only the German invasion prevented them from finishing the job.

The German authorities on the occupied territories actually helped to restore the infrastructure of the Christian Church (Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant) on a scale that seriously worried Bolsheviks who feared that they might lose the propaganda war – and thus the whole war.

Consequently, the only correct answer to this fundamental question is this: actions of the Nazis (like those of many other people) served both God and Devil. But not equally as Nazi Germany never constituted an existential threat to the Christian Church and the Christian civilization.

Nazi Germany and other Axis Powers (obviously, minus Japan) prevented the Soviet Union from destroying the Christian Church and the Christian civilization thus performing a vitally important service for God. Consequently, they served God far more than “the other side”.

It is very important to keep in mind that Germany and all its European allies (with the exception of Finland) fought under the Christian insignia. Germany used the Balkenkreuz (a derivative of the cross developed and worn by the Teutonic knights worn in numerous wars against European pagans).

Subsequently, this cross was transformed into a so-called Eisernes Kreuz – a Prussian emblem that symbolized traditional Prussian values – first and foremost, the Christian religion.

The military insignia of two largest Allied powers – the USA and the Soviet Union – were decisively pagan (white and red pentagram, respectively). And all other Allied Nations used neutral insignia – neither Christian nor pagan. Only Free France (who fought to liberate their country from German occupation) fought under Christian insignia – the Cross of Lorraine.

Finnish Armed Forces and German Luftwaffe used swastika (the latter also used the Balkenkreuz) – the symbol that was extensively used in Christianity until the start of World War II.
