What is evil? Or to frame the question better, who is evil? Most people when they think of evil envision Adolph Hitler. But what many do not comprehend is that the depraved nature that motivated Hitler is the same in all of us (Rom 3:23). If that comparison makes you angry, please read on.

I just finished reading Hitler, God & the Bible by Ray Comfort. This needs to be on your book shelf. Please take the time to go get and read this book. It will only take a couple of hours to read and you will not be able to put it down. It is really a companion to the “180” documentary released a short time ago. By the way, “180” is available online if you look it up.

So what did I get out of this book? First, I have always been a fan of history so the story of Hitler’s youth was a fascinating read. It is easy after reading the details of his childhood to understand his character and why he was what he was. He was a spoiled brat with an entitled attitude. He lived a life of deception to fool people into believing he was something he wasn’t, namely, a talented artist and architect. He consistently blamed others for his abject failure and was a self-aggrandizing egomaniac. He would continue these things into adulthood and up until his suicide. Hitler is an example of a depraved human being that is given the opportunity, through the alignment of some very specific circumstances, to be all that he could be. Hitler is an example of what happens when God judges a man and removes His restraining grace (Gen 20:6).

Secondly, Hitler is what happens when God judges a nation. Hitler would not have brought the Third Reich or Nazi regime into being unless he was wanted by the German people. Don’t get me wrong, there was plenty of deception. Hitler was quoted as saying to the doting masses, “The entire system must be altered. Therefore, the great task is to restore to people their belief in leadership”. Fundamental change anyone? A Fuhrer (leader) for change is what they wanted and change is what they got. He propagandized Germany and they were ripe for the deceiving. Germany had high unemployment; high inflation and the conditions were primed for a leader who promised the world. Many Germans wanted something for nothing.

This book pointed out some glaring resemblances to modern day USA. Hitler was a Socialist. In fact, NAZI stands for the “National Socialist German Workers’ Party. For a socialist leader to gain prominence he must be in demand. He knew how to rouse the rabble. We are facing very similar circumstances today. A large portion of our population is discontented and believes that the rich are evil and are not doing their fair share. Germany faced dire economic circumstances following WW1 and the American Great Depression had an impact on them. Hitler created a villain…the business savvy Jews. They were the 1%’s of Germany. Most of Germany’s woes were laid at the feet of the Jew and Germany gave Hitler license to exact its vengeance. He played to the covetousness of the masses. It was class warfare at its finest. Hitler was motivated by greed and so were the Germans. Does this sound familiar? Hitler took wealth redistribution to its natural endgame. The Jews were stripped of all their belongings and clothes (women had their heads shaved so their hair could be sold) and ushered into the gas chambers. After the death sentence was carried out the teeth of the victims were examined so any gold fillings could be extracted. This is what funded Germany’s economic recovery!

But the similarities are worse. Hitler made persecution of the Jews LEGAL. In order to accomplish this he had to de-humanize them. In April of 1933, (Pages 102-103) Jews were denied the right to hold public office, civil service positions or serve as lawyers. To remedy school and university overcrowding Jews had their numbers first limited and then eventually were put out all together. In 1933, the Jews who were also referred to as the “undesirables” had their citizenship revoked. It got progressively worse when in 1938 their assets were seized and transferred to non-Jews. Ultimately, they were rounded up and murdered in mass. Does this sound familiar? What citizen has no recognizable rights today? What citizen is seen as the “undesirable” today? What citizen is murdered by rule of law today? The answer of course is the unborn.

I spoke to someone recently who thought of himself as a good and moral person who supported abortion. My question is what is the “moral” condition of a people that can stand by and watch the slaughter of innocent life? We in America, look down on the Germans that turned their gaze away when the train loads of Jews went by in cattle cars headed for the gas chambers. We cringe at the comparisons of Nazi Germany with modern America. We are too advanced, sophisticated and free a people to be compared with them. We are not for murder; we are for the right of a woman to choose. We really love our children; we are just “terminating” “non-human” fetuses. We say, “They are not human, so did Hitler. We say, “They are not citizens with God given rights”, so did Hitler. We say, “They won’t have a good quality life”, so did Hitler.  We say. “We can’t afford them, so did Hitler. The Holocaust here in America is far greater and in fact, worse than Hitler by sheer magnitude of numbers. We have murdered over 50 million babies while Hitler was estimated to have murdered 6 million Jews in the Holocaust.

Lastly, you must take look at the state of the Church in Germany. They were a religious people (2 Tim 3:1-5). They were idolatrous and could not see the fraud of a Messiah that they were worshipping because they had laid aside the truth. Are we any different today? I hear Christians today saying…I will not get involved in things political. I am only concerned with “spiritual matters” (1 Cor 2:15-16). The church in Germany struck a deal with Hitler that if they stayed out of “Secular” matters he would protect them. He shut the mouths of pastors in the pulpit. By the way, what has the IRS done with the church’s 501c3 status? The church, with a few exceptions, kept their end of the bargain, Hitler lied and many died. He even substituted himself (for the Lord) in the Lord’s Prayer (Pg 146).

The Church and specifically Christians are far too silent today. We have been fooled into being Secularists. What is outside the scope of Scripture? What does God remain silent on? We are called to be salt and light. This means that we are to bring healing, preservation and contrast to the world around us. How are we to do this? We do this by sharing the mind of God with a depraved world. We do this by telling the world the truth. Truth does not stop at the doorstep of the church.

In what is known today as the “great commission” We are commanded to “teach” all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). This is the word (didasko) which means “to hold discourse in order to instruct them”. How are we to instruct them? Jesus said to teach them whatsoever He has commanded us. This means teaching them God’s law which is the very foundation of the Gospel. For purposes of this discussion, “Thou shalt not kill”, will do nicely (Ex 20:13). Jesus said further that if you love me, you will keep my commandments (John 14:15). We must meet them where they are. There is no area of life that is out of bounds for the Christian. (DBL)
