That is only for Ephesians so we can ignore that.

Ephesians 3:1-6.
1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:
3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

Actually, no, it isn't.
For he, G_O_D or Ben or whatever you want to call him, was never vitriolic towards me, so while I dislike certain views of his, I won't be vitriolic towards him.

It's a simple matter of treating others as they do you. On the other hand, all of those who I have negatively commented towards have all made negative comments towards me.
For example, I treated Serah with kindness until she started lying about what I said, against all proof and evidence, and then claimed I needed my DNA changed.

If I were to act like you want me to, I would condemn everyone I met for some reason, for chances are that everyone has something they believe in that another thinks is evil.

That's not what I'm talking about.
I'm talking about comparing a Christian to Hitler or some other negative christian because of personal views.
But not comparing an atheist to Stalin or some other negative atheist because of personal views. There seems to be a double standard here. I'm sorry if you can't see that, then I guess you do not have an unbiased view here.

I will compare anyone who espouses anti-Semitic propaganda to Hitler.

I will compare anyone who espouses racist propaganda to the KKK.

That has nothing to do with whether they are Christians or not.

Now, I will admit that I have anti-religious views AND that I understand why Stalin may have had similar views. That does not mean I espouse Soviet Totalitarianism.

I do find that most of the Communist Manifesto goes more to support democracy than any Government that refers to itself as "communist".

In fact, I would argue that the USA is closer to the ideals of the Communist Manifesto than any alleged communist country.

Godwin's law evoked! ;)

Many American books, television documentaries, and Sunday sermons that preach of Hitler's "evil" have eliminated Hitler's god for their Christian audiences, but one only has to read from his own writings to appreciate that Hitler's God equals the same God of the Christian Bible.

Hitler held many hysterical beliefs which not only include, God and Providence but also Fate, Social Darwinism, and ideological politics. He spoke, unashamedly, about God, fanaticism, idealism, dogma, and the power of propaganda.

Hitler held strong faith in all his convictions. He justified his fight for the German people and against Jews by using Godly and Biblical reasoning. Indeed, one of his most revealing statements makes this quite clear:

"Hence today 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."

Raised as Catholic he went to a monastery school and, interestingly, walked everyday past a stone arch which was carved the monastery's coat of arms which included a swastika.

The German words, "Gott Mit Uns" means God With Us and appeared on many Nazi soldiers belt buckles during WWII. To see the buckle...
