So you’re denying the direct quotes made by the Nazis in the post?

I will deny it, if Campion does not. Anyone willing to research the Nazi regime will have to conclude that the quote you refer to is merely propaganda. They were occultists looking to resurrect the gods of ancient Germany, blending them with a rather mythical view of the Aryans and their gods (largely unknown at the time). Nazi religion is probably the single most state-structured Neo-Pagan effort in modern times. Any mention of Lutheran Protestantism would necessarily be a marriage of convenience.

And even that neo-paganism was a prop for the masses, IMHO, as it was methodically overlaid with imagery of the state, and quite often depicted nazi leaders in heroic poses - Let us not forget that Naziism is technically socialist at heart. Socialists must abhor Christianity, no matter which stripe (Lutherans included) as it is an unlikely means to state religion, which must replace all existing religions in the socialist ideal.

So the Nazis didn't incorporate Martin Luther's antiSemitism and replacement theology into their genocide against the Jews?

Whether it was propaganda or not, if Martin Luther had not had antiSemitic and replacement theology beliefs, and had not vocalized and publicized his hatred and contempt of the Jewish people, the Nazis would not have had that to use as further justification for their mass murder of God's chosen people.

The antiSemitism and replacement theology continues today in direct and deliberate contradiction to Jesus Christ and His Scripture.

The bottom line, at the end of the day, is that there are people who espouse the same beliefs, whether we want to call it propaganda or not, as the Nazis used as validation for their actions.

” Anyone willing to research the Nazi regime will have to conclude that the quote you refer to is merely propaganda.”

Sadly, as a Christian, I have to see this for what it is: revisionist history. The Nazis enveloped and embraces all forms of German Christianity, and did what they did in the name of my savior Jesus Christ.

This is an anti-Christian site, but it is correct on this issue. The photos are clear.
