The Hitler Bible
The American Thinker ^ | 08/09/2006 | Joseph Crowley

Posted on 08/09/2006 10:00:31 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

The U.K. Daily Mirror is not the first paper most think of when it comes to serious breaking news. But the Mirror was the first to break the story of Adolf Hitler doing a little editing of the Bible so he could use the power of the religion he hated to his further his maniacal cause. It’s said that approximately 100,000 Third Reich Bibles were actually published and distributed to thousands of churches in 1941.It’s believed this particular copy, discovered in church offices in Hamburg, is one of the few if not the sole surviving “Deutsch mit Gott – Germans with God”. The rest are assumed to have been destroyed by Christians that rightfully considered them blasphemous. Ironically, some may have even been burned along with thousands of other books on direct orders of Hitler himself.

Of course all Jewish words, such as Hallelujah and Jehovah were removed and any and all representations of compassion were erased.

The most blatant and significant amendments were Hitler’s not 10 but 12 commandments! And we’re not just talking about adding two new biblical house rules. Two were deemed démodéd and deleted forthwith and four entirely new ones were handed down from on high. Six and eight, thou shalt not kill or steal, obviously would’ve interfered with the Fuhrer’s plans for global domination so they just had to go. Below are Adolf Hitler’s version of the Mount Sinai Missives.

1. Honor God and believe in him wholeheartedly

2. Seek out the peace of God (So far so good.)

3. Avoid all hypocrisy

4. Holy is your health and life

5. Holy is your well-being and honor

6. Holy is your truth and fidelity

7. Honor your father and mother – your children are your aid and your example

8. Keep the blood pure and your honor holy

9. Maintain and multiply the heritage of your forefathers

10. Be ready to help and forgive

11. Honor your Fuhrer and master (11!? Modesty thy name is Hitler.)

12. Joyously serve the people with work and sacrifice.

Well, it's not entirely incredible. And it wouldn't be the last time collectivists attempted to coopt religion to further their own political aims ... as a matter of fact, we're seeing something along those lines right now, in our own country. It's certainly clumsy and obvious to anyone who even understands Christianity, but that doesn't seem to matter. It's all about "recapturing" the "language," for propaganda value, apparently.

From Wikipedia:

"The Führer is deeply religious, though completely anti-Christian; he views Christianity as a symptom of decay. Rightly so. It is a branch of the Jewish race."—Joseph Goebbels, in his diary, December 28, 1939.

"Christianity is the prototype of Bolshevism: the mobilisation by the Jew of the masses of slaves with the object of undermining society." —Hitler 1941

"My feeling 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." —Hitler, on his belief in the non-Jewish, anti-materialistic, 'Ario-heroic' spirit of Jesus, later distorted by exoteric Christianity

"The German people, especially the youth, have learned once again to value people racially-they have once again turned away from Christian theories, from Christian teaching which has ruled Germany for more than a thousand years and caused the racial decay of the German Volk, and almost its racial death." —Heinrich Himmler May 22, 1936 at a speech in Brocken, Germany.

How about some revisionismed texts in current use?

Three bug me the most
1. "Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me"

WRETCH is replaced with a variety of words that all imply no sinful nature, just an impoverished economic or cultural environment. and LIKE ME is usually replace with the collective US.

2. God said: "Am I my brother's keeper? Yes, you are your brother's keeper."

WRONG. That lying murderer said "Am I my brother's keeper?" In an attempt to throw a red herring into his attempts to escape God's justice. God commanded to be keepers of the plants and animals. But we specifically are NOT our brother's keeper in God's plan.

3. "Robin Hood, Steal from the rich and give to the poor"

WRONG. The government/politicians/Sheriff of Nottingham stole from middle class people for the personal benefit of government employees. Robin Hood stole back the property that the sheriff had stolen and returned the stolen property to its rightful owners.

The poor were not involved in the transfers of property as they had nothing worth stealing.

Bookmarked as proof Hitler was a self-styled Christian (or at least a Deist).

"Bookmarked as proof Hitler was a self-styled Christian"

He cynically manipulated and severely altered Christianity to further his political domination, and also utilized Norse Pagan beliefs to the same end. This is proof that he was NOT Christian.

True, he was CINO (of the worst sort).

I wasn't clear. This is proof that he called himself Christian. He wasn't.

Sorry for my clumsiness.

Creationists seek to find a place for God in science. Hitler sought to replace God with himself.

This isn't proof of anything.

The authenticity of the document is dubious at best. If authentic, its purpose was for National Socialist propaganda, not Christian enlightenment.

"This is proof that he called himself Christian"

There were occasions when he purported to be such for his own advantage, but it's quite clear from his own writings, as well as those of Goebbels and others, that Hitler detested Christianity. Hitler also signed a pact with Stalin ... did that make him a Stalinist? No, it didn't.

3. "Robin Hood, Steal from the rich and give to the poor"

There is a Far Side cartoon about how, before his mission in life was clarified, Robin Hood went around stealing from the rich and giving to the porcupines.

I have a copy of a rather fancy Third Reich magazine that depicts a collection of churches painted by himself before the beer hall days.

How old is the green helmet guy?

The Nazi religion was stated by a Nazi in the following words: "Hitler is our program." One might add immodestly, the Nazi faith was in Hitler too - the Fuhrer was worshipped by the Germans during the Third Reich in the manner in which people would worship God.

Why don't you check the meaning of Deist, and then try to use it correctly.

Hitler repeatedly denied the deification thrust upon him by his admirers.

He wanted the State to be the object of worship.

About 6 years ago, I came across a yard sale which had a dozen or so of those mugs for sale. I bought two, but have since kicked myself for not buying all he had to sell.

Last time I was in Germany I bought six beautiful hefeweissen glasses. The Germans do some great stuff--like cars, pistols and beer glasses.

If Adolf Hitler
were alive today and had
Final Cut Pro on

his Apple, he would
re-cut "Lethal Weapon" so
Woody Allen and

Jerry Stiller were
the evil villains smuggling
drugs to white people . . .

I don't think it was "taxes". The "taxes" were set by the king, who was off fighting a war in the Middle East and using that tax money for finance the war effort.

The sheriff just "seized" property. The property seized was mostly chickens and farm animals. Occasionally it was crops, silverware, jewelry, coins, etc. It would be like today if a cop just took your car or TV as "evidence" or some other lame excuse and then made personal use of it.

I stand corrected. Those early day posts never seem to work out right.
