The Marxist Servants of Satan (1)

Satan_School_01a-1200x720

In this chapter, I will prove beyond the reasonable doubt that the very foundation of Hitler’s policies and activities (and of the whole Third Reich) was conscious or unconscious need to fight and win the existential war with the Bolshevist Soviet Union.

Consequently, to understand the Third Reich, you have to understand the Soviet Union and to understand Adolf Hitler, you have to understand Joseph Stalin. And to understand Stalin, you have to understand… Satan. Devil. Lucifer. The Prince of Darkness.

There are two popular misconceptions about Satan. The first (by far more widespread) is that he does not exist. Alas, he very much does. The second (usually held and preached by Christian and some other religious fanatics) claims that just about every evil deed committed in our world, was carried out by Satan who used this or that individual to do this job. In reality, this is not the case at all.

Although Satan very much exists – and does fight with God all the time for the, well, ownership of our world (and every individual human soul, of course) – practically all evil done by human beings is driven not by the Devil (although he obviously enjoys it big time).

With very, very rare exception these evil acts are caused and driven strictly by very human sins – the so-called “cardinal” or even “mortal” sins. Pride, greed, gluttony, sloth, lust, evil, hatred/wrath (the “favorite sin” of the Nazis) and fear – the “eighth deadly sin” that in most cases generates hatred. Satan has nothing to do with them whatsoever – there is even a serious doubt that he was in any way involved with the “original sin” (the proverbial “fall from Grace”).

Consequently. Although there are cases of genuine demonic possession of human beings (the Bible is right about that), they are very, very rare – and not nearly as common as the “community of exorcists” and some religious fundamentalists believe and claim.

With very few exceptions all cases viewed as demonic possession (even by well-trained and highly experienced exorcists) are mental illnesses and thus must be treated by mental health professionals, not by the Church.

Therefore, in reality, genuinely satanic activities (Acts of the Devil, if you will) are extremely. And not only because Satan is generally prohibited by God to interfere in human affairs directly (and the Devil can do nothing without the consent of an omnipotent God).

But mostly because Satan wants to fry a bigger fish, so to speak. He is not interested in grabbing individual souls (the overwhelming majority of human souls end up in Hell in the afterlife anyway). He wants our whole world – all of it. And all human souls, of course. And is very much willing (and, alas, able) to fight for it.

I am not a big fan of horror novels (or movies for that matter). I’ve seen enough in my life, thank you very much. However, there are a few writers of horror who are genuine mystics; consequently, reading their novels sometimes is the same as, for example, works of Christian mystics. Or Muslim. Or Jewish.

One of such mystics is F. Paul Wilson (another one is John Connolly). Wilson wrote a whole series of books about one Repairman Jack who repairs… not household items, of course. Or cars for that matter. He is more like a Mechanic played by Jason Statham.

All horror series are built on a certain mythology and the Repairman Jack is no exception. The core of this mythology is an eternal battle between two global – Universal even – forces for control over planet Earth (i.e. our world).

These forces are called the Otherness – its description matches the description of the Evil One almost to a “T”; and “Ally” which in some key respects looks and behave like… well, God.

The only deficiency of this methodology (alas, of just about all horror novels and movies) is that it portrays the Otherness (i.e. Devil) as being far more powerful than Ally (i.e. God). Reality, thankfully, is exactly the opposite.

Another fundamental difference is that while in the Repairman Jack novels the war between these forces is eternal and often quite “hot” – with pretty serious casualties – there were only two known cases of an open war between God and Satan (Light and Darkness) in recorded human history.

Obviously, both times it was a “proxy war” between two very tangible (and very human) forces – the “Army of God” and the “Army of Satan”.

The first known “proxy war” was between Christianity and Islam (more precisely, between Christian and Islamic civilizations). It does not mean, of course that Muslims worship Devil (they do not) or willingly serve the Prince of Darkness (they do not either). It only means that somehow the latter figured out how to use the former for his very sinister (actually, murderous and very much destructive) purposes.

How exactly – I have no clue (I am not an expert in Islam or its history). I only know (actually, it is pretty much the common knowledge) that this First Existential Proxy War was fought for almost precisely a millennium. It began in the 7th century and was pretty much over by the end of the 17th century. The Christians won. Period.

They did not destroy the Islamic Civilization (this was never their objective); they only saved their civilization from being destroyed (annihilated, actually) by the Muslims.

The only one thing I am pretty sure about the origins of the First Existential Proxy War is that Satan was able to start it only because in that particular region (Middle East and North Africa) the Christian Church – more precisely, the Eastern Christian Church – was so weakened by corruption and apostasy (it almost openly served not Jesus Christ but the Roman Emperor) that the Gates of Hell, alas, prevailed over it.

Hence, the First Existential Proxy War was, alas, won only by the Western Christian Church (Catholic and Protestant Churches, to be more precise). The Eastern Christian Church lost this existential war – and all of its territories in the Middle East and North Africa.

And thus almost ceased to exist. Fortunately, it was subsequently saved by the expansion into Eastern Europe (Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, etc.).

For about 200 more years, the Western Christian Church was strong enough to keep Satan at bay. Unfortunately, for several reasons by mid-19th century it got so weak that Satan got the chance to “repeat the experience”.

In other words, to launch the Second Existential Proxy War. Only this time his weapon was not a religion, but an ideology; his banner was red, not green; and his primary human tools were philosophers, not a prophet.

This time, it was not Islam but Marxism and not one individual, but four: Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky and Joseph Stalin.

Where Was God?

God

Six million Jews – God’s chosen people – have been shot or gassed. It was a mass murder of truly colossal 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.

But the Bolshevist Soviet Union was. It was a very much existential threat to God’s Church (Christian Church) and the whole Christian Civilization. In fact, to the whole human civilization which the Bolsheviks (unconsciously, of course, but it made no difference whatsoever) would have transformed into a very literal Hell on Earth.

And the only power in the world capable of stopping the Bolsheviks in their tracks was the German Wehrmacht. Wehrmacht + Waffen-SS, to be more precise. The Armed Forces of Nazi Germany. Of NAZI Germany.

Hence, God only wanted the Nazis to (1) prevent the Bolshevist Soviet Union from destroying His Church and His civilization; and (2) not do anything that might constitute the existential threat to “both of the above”. As long as they did what He wanted them to do and did not do what He did not want them to do, he did not care what else they did.

So He did not intervene and allowed the Nazis to exterminate many millions of Russians, Poles, etc. In other words, to commit colossal blunders. Because, again, although these mass murders were horrible war crimes, they did not constitute an existential threat to the Church and the Christian civilization. And thus did not bother God in the least.

Horrible? Yes. Inhuman? Absolutely. However, God has His own logic and His own system of priorities which more often than not are very different from ours (i.e. human).

Obviously, we do not like it – from our human perspective our God is far from perfect (to put it mildly). But He is the only God we have so there is nothing we can do about it. Nothing whatsoever.

Adolf Hitler from the Christian Perspective

AH14As I have already mentioned, I am Roman Catholic. And I have already confessed that I wrote this book first and foremost for myself. So I inevitably included into this chapter a section that analyzes Adolf Hitler, his personality, decisions and actions from a Christian perspective.

I am confident that this section will be useful not only for Christians (Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, etc.) but for every reader regardless of his or her religious views. For a very simple reason – it will explain why so many Christians were so supportive of Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler personally.

I am no theologian (Catholic or otherwise); however, I am familiar enough with Catholic teaching to be able to express my humble opinion about the Christian perspective on Adolf Hitler. It is – as just about anything in Adolf Hitler – decidedly “black and white”.

The “black” part is obvious. Adolf Hitler is guilty of mass murder and other horrible war crimes and crimes against humanity. Very probably, the worst crimes in human history. Which is a very heavy (and very deadly) sin. Murder and plunder – a blatant violation of two sacred God’s commandments.

To make things worse, he committed suicide – which is one more cardinal sin. He died by his own hand without confessing his horrendous sins and receiving the last rites. He lived in sin with Eva Braun for thirteen years although ultimately he did marry her.

On top of that, he was raised Catholic but essentially left the Church and de-facto became sort of polytheist, believing in three gods – Christian God (i.e. the Holy Trinity), Providence (sometimes he referred to it as Fate) and Nature – the latter being decidedly pagan.

On the other hand (the “white” part), Adolf Hitler and his Nazis saved the Christian Church (and thus the whole Christian Civilization) from the practically assured destruction by the Bolsheviks. And thus the whole human civilization to be transformed into Hell on Earth. Literally, because the annihilation of Christianity means exactly that.

It is quite obvious that for the Christian Church and for the Christian God the latter is far more important than the former. Consequently, from Christian perspective, Adolf Hitler (i.e. his decisions and actions) were “net positive”. Possibly even substantially so.

 

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.
