Well it was certainly convenient for Hitler to target Jews, as the majority of Germans were Christian, and they already had that major dispute about deities going on. Thus the idea of Jesus was simple to exploit and Hitler did so successfully for some time, as he achieved the goal of having Christians kill Jews in mass for many years.<quoted text>
Point well taken on the Jews. But, the way I see it the Jews were just the first and most convenient... Was it because of their beliefs or their wealth and prominence? World dominance was Hitlers cause. That would mean wiping out everyone (regardless of religion) who stood in the way. Russia at the time was a full fledged communist country. England was bombed without mercy.
I not in the position to argue the Old Testament... For me to defend or something I don't fully understand is hypocrisy at is finest. Maybe someday but not today. I question a lot of things.
Hitler had an army of Christians to kill Jews. Not sure if you wish to call that a Christian army, but I would.
No matter what Hitler the man thought, the point is, he easily swayed Christians to kill the opposing religion of the region.
So you do not understand the OT? Well that is strange. It is the god you worship, correct? Or do you worship a different god? Seems to me if you are going to debate religion here, you should know your god, and the claims of the holy book that describe your god and his actions.
The OT is supposed to be the root of your religion. I look to the book often to judge if the god of the bible is plausible. I do not see it as plausible at all.
Maybe you should read it a bit and see the outrageous things it claims of god. From what I see, he is a murderous dictator. Well if he was real. But the OT shows me that the god is invented by men who were murderous dictators.
