Hitler was influenced by Christianity and here are some of his quotes:

"My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded 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. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice... And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.

-Adolf Hitler, in a speech on 12 April 1922

Just as the Jew could once incite the mob of Jerusalem against Christ, so today he must succeed in inciting folk who have been duped into madness to attack those who, God's truth! seek to deal with this people in utter honesty and sincerity.

-Adolf Hitler, in Munich, 28 July 1922


In the Bible we find the text, 'That which is neither hot nor cold will I spew out of my mouth.' This utterance of the great Nazarene has kept its profound validity until the present day.

-Adolf Hitler, speech in Munich, 10 April 1923

[The Bible quote comes Jesus speaking in Revelation 3:16]

"We want honestly to earn the resurrection of our people through our industry, our perseverance, our will. We ask not of the Almighty 'Lord, make us free'!-- we want to be active, to work, to agree together as brothers, to strive in rivalry with one another to bring about the hour when we can come before Him and when we may ask of Him: 'Lord, Thou seest that we have transformed ourselves, the German people is not longer the people of dishonour, of shame, of war within itself, of faintheartedness and little faith: no, Lord, the German people has become strong again in spirit, strong in will, strong in endurance, strong to bear all sacrifices.' 'Lord, we will not let Thee go: bless now our fight for our freedom; the fight we wage for our German people and Fatherland."

-Adolf Hitler, giving prayer in a speech on May Day 1933

These are this some of his quotes which mention God and Jesus. They are plenty of more in which I can give you.

Hitler was not influenced by Darwinian but by Social Darwinism which has little to do with natural selection.

Hitler said this in Mein Kampf:

"I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.."

Hitler died in believing Jesus that means that Hitler will go to Heaven.

Wow, have you read my posts at all? In one of my former posts I talked about Hitler and Stalin and how they were influenced by evolution. I gave a secular source about how Hitler was influenced by evolution and how he feigned to be a Catholic. I even gave you information about Hitler's secret conversations (which blatantly show you that Hitler hated Christianity).

Here was my former post: http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/66993

Here's the wikipedia link again: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler's_religious_beliefs

Yes, Hitler said he was a Catholic in public, however he never believed in it:

Hitler's private statements are more mixed. There are negative statements about Christianity reported by Hitler's intimates, Goebbels, Speer, and Bormann.[10] Joseph Goebbels, for example, notes in a diary entry in 1939: "The F├╝hrer is deeply religious, but deeply anti-Christian. He regards Christianity as a symptom of decay." Albert Speer reports a similar statement: "You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?"[11] In the Hossbach Memorandum Hitler is recorded as saying that "only the disintegrating effect of Christianity, and the symptoms of age" were responsible for the demise of the Roman empire.

Hitler did not believe in a "remote, rationalist divinity" but in an "active deity,"[18] which he frequently referred to as "Creator" or "Providence". In Hitler's belief God created a world in which different races fought each other for survival along social darwinist lines. The "Aryan race", supposedly the bearer of civilisation, is allocated a special place:

Despite the unclear position of Hitler's public speeches on religion, it may be concluded from his self-chosen suicide, that he had no attachment to Roman Catholic, and general Christian, teachings on morality which forbid suicide in all cases

Hitler was not influenced by Darwinian but by Social Darwinism which has little to do with natural selection.

You're joking right? Read the wikipedia link above.


Some socialists allege that capitalists used Social Darwinism to justify laissez-faire capitalism and social inequality. Others have used it to justify a variety of beliefs such as racialism or imperialism. Many used Social Darwinism to argue against any sort of universal morality or any sort of altruism.

Social Darwinism in the most basic form is the idea that biological ideas can be extended and applied to the social realm. However, the term has generally been used by critics rather than advocates of what the term is supposed to represent (Bannister, 1979; Hodgson, 2004). It has been applied to the claim that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection or by "survival of the fittest" can be used to understand the evolution of society: just as competition between individual organisms drives biological evolutionary change (speciation), competition between individuals or groups in human societies drives social evolution.

May God Bless You All
