    Hitler Bible Found
    Newspaper
    article by Will Waddell (willwaddell) on 09 August 2006, tagged as history

    A surviving copy of a ‘Nazi Bible’ has been discovered in Hamburg, Germany. The extant copy, one of about 100,000 originally distributed to German churches, contains a rewritten version of the Ten Commandments and has been purged of all Jewish words, such as Hallelujah or Jehovah. In Hitler’s Bible there are twelve commandments, including such exhortations as “Honor your Fuhrer” and “Keep the blood pure and holy.” Hitler sent the Bible, entitled Germans With God to German Christians in 1941 in an attempt to “Nazify” the church and expunge “outdated” sentiments like mercy and love. The Nazi Bible, being the product of professors set to redact the ancient text, was stripped of all references to the Jews or compassion, and was meant to support Hitler’s view of Aryan supermen dominating the world’s lesser races. It is believed that Christians destroyed most copies of the book.

    Slavery in the Bible!!!

    Except for murder, slavery has got to be one of the most immoral things a person can do. Yet slavery is rampant throughout the Bible in both the Old and New Testaments. The Bible clearly approves of slavery in many passages, and it goes so far as to tell how to obtain slaves, how hard you can beat them, and when you can have sex with the female slaves.

    Many Jews and Christians will try to ignore the moral problems of slavery by saying that these slaves were actually servants or indentured servants. Many translations of the Bible use the word “servant”, “bondservant”, or “manservant” instead of “slave” to make the Bible seem less immoral than it really is. While many slaves may have worked as household servants, that doesn’t mean that they were not slaves who were bought, sold, and treated worse than livestock.

    The following passage shows that slaves are clearly property to be bought and sold like livestock.

    However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

    The following passage describes how the Hebrew slaves are to be treated.

    If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.’ If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever. (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)

    Notice how they can get a male Hebrew slave to become a permanent slave by keeping his wife and children hostage until he says he wants to become a permanent slave. What kind of family values are these?

    The following passage describes the sickening practice of sex slavery. How can anyone think it is moral to sell your own daughter as a sex slave?

    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

    So these are the Bible family values! A man can buy as many sex slaves as he wants as long as he feeds them, clothes them, and screws them!

    What does the Bible say about beating slaves? It says you can beat both male and female slaves with a rod so hard that as long as they don’t die right away you are cleared of any wrong doing.

    When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

    You would think that Jesus and the New Testament would have a different view of slavery, but slavery is still approved of in the New Testament, as the following passages show.

    Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

    Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them. (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

    In the following parable, Jesus clearly approves of beating slaves even if they didn’t know they were doing anything wrong.

    The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. “But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given.” (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)

    Luke 17: 7-10. Slavery in New Testament!!!
    Eph. 6: 5-7.
    Tim. 6: 1-3.
    Tit. 2: 9,10.
    1. Petr. 2:18-21.

    The Bible and Racism!!!

    The Bible is clear in teaching the equal opportunity of all races to join God’s family by accepting God’s laws and principles. There are no Scriptures which support the separation of races or the superiority of one racial group over the other. The Bible translation used is the New International Version (NIV).
    SECTION 1: CREATION AND RACE

    Genesis 1:27
    So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
    Genesis 2:22
    Then the Lord made a woman from the rib He had taken out of the man, and He brought her to the man.
    These two verses illustrate that in the beginning there were two people, obviously of one ‘race.’ Just as both were made in God’s image, so would their offspring be. Thus, all mankind is equal in the sight of God as all are offspring of Adam and Eve.

    Genesis 1:24
    And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds…”
    The God-given natural law for each creature to reproduce according to its ‘kind’ may be applied to man: since there were only two humans, Adam and Eve, and all people descended from them, there is no Biblical mandate against racial intermarriage.

    Genesis 9:1
    Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.”
    With the great flood, the only human life remaining on planet earth was Noah, his wife, their three sons and their wives. The racial makeup of these wives is not known or mentioned in the Bible. If, however, racial characteristics are physical variations God allowed to help different peoples adapt to the habitat in the varied regions of the world, these wives could be the sources of the three races. Some scholars have postulated a racial breakdown of the three sons, with the Semitic peoples (such as the Jews), descending from Shem, the black peoples from Ham and white peoples from Japeth.

    Genesis 9:24-25
    When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, he said: “Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers.”
    Because Ham means ‘dark’ or ‘black,’ some have incorrectly theorized that Ham was cursed with blackness because of the sin of the ‘youngest son.’ Since Canaan is specifically named as the guilty party, it is likely that the crime (likely a homosexual act or action) was committed by him personally. The ‘youngest son’ refers to the grandson, a common literary practice in Biblical writings. This curse definitely does not cover all of the Hamitic peoples, just the Canaanites. Additionally, all Hamitic peoples were not ‘black’ or negro: the Babylonians were a Hamitic people.

    Genesis 11:9
    This is why it is called Babel – because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
    The Tower of Babel is sited by some as the origin of different racial groups, but this challenges the specific nature of God’s action in relation to language. The racial differences which result from living in different regions of the earth may have been a result of this scattering, but were not part of God’s act at this time.

    Leviticus 19:19
    “Keep my decrees. Do not mate different kinds of animals. Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.”
    Mating of different kinds of animals can produce infertile offspring, planting seeds together lead to problems in harvesting and different kinds of clothe create a problem in cleaning and care of the fabric. These are practical laws… there is no context to assume it applies toward humans. Even if it did, all mankind has two common ancestors and thus is classed as one ‘kind.’

    SECTION 2: JEWISH PROHIBITIONS AGAINST INTERMARRIAGE

    Genesis 15:16
    “In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.”
    God did not give the Israelites the land of an ‘innocent’ or ‘inferior’ people (the Canaanites), but rather of a wicked people whose religious practices were an abomination to God. This verse shows that God delayed the entry of Israel into the land until the magnitude of the Amorites’ sin justified their annihilation.

    Exodus 34:15-16
    Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land (Canaanites and related peoples); for when they prostitute themselves to their gods and sacrifice to them, they will invite you and you will eat their sacrifices. And when you choose some of their daughters as wives for your sons and those daughters prostitute themselves to their gods, they will lead your sons to do the same.
    This is the initial warning to Israel about intermarriage with the peoples of Canaan whose abominable pagan religious practices were the reason God was giving them the land. Adopting those practices would turn Israel from God, and this was the reason for prohibition of intermarriage and contact in general (Deuteronomy 7 expands on this as does Exodus 23:31-33). Numbers 25:1-9 records a plague sent from God which killed 24,000 Israelites as a punishment for sexual relations and idol worship with Moabite and Midianite women, stopped only by the spearing of a brazen couple by Phineas.

    Judges 3:6
    They took their daughters in marriage and gave their own daughters to their sons, and served their gods.
    This passage summarizes the reason behind the events throughout the Book of Judges: the Canaanite people left behind as a ‘test’ (Judges 3:4) of the obedience of the Israelites to remain separate, entice Israel into idolatry and pagan worship, resulting in God allowing a foreign oppressor to assault them. The repentance of the Israelites and turning to God lasts only a short time, and the Israelites again return to their sin and disobedience

    1 Kings 11:1-3
    King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharoah’s daughter – Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. They were from nations about which the Lord had told the Israelites, “You must no intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods.” Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love. He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray.
    The ‘greatest’ King of Israel serves as the greatest example of the result of the sin of intermarriage with pagan women. The subsequent idolatry of the soon-to-be-divided nation of Israel/Judah, which led to their eventual conquest and removal from the land by foreign empires, is directly traceable to disobeying God’s commands concerning intermixing with the pagan peoples.

    Nehemiah 13:26-27
    “Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned…Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?”

    Ezra 9:2; 10-12
    “They have taken some of their daughters as wives for themselves and their sons, and have mingled the holy race with the peoples around them. And the leaders and officials have led the way in this unfaithfulness.”
    “But now, O our God, what we say after this? For we have disregarded the commands you gave through your servants the prophets when you said: The land you are entering to possess is a land polluted by the corruption of this peoples. By their detestable practices they have filled it with their impurity from one end to the other. Therefore do not give your daughters in marriage to their sons or take their daughters for your sons…
    The reason for remaining separate from the people is reiterated while post-captivity leaders Ezra and Nehemiah deal with the seemingly unending problem of intermarriage with pagan peoples. The term ‘holy race,’ or ‘seed’ as in the King James, does not designate a ‘racial’ group of people but rather is meant to designate the unique status of the Jewish people as a religio-ethnic group

    CONCLUSION: God’s prohibition against intermarriage with the Canaanite and other peoples of the land was not based on racial but rather the religious and societal practices of those peoples. Using this prohibition to support racist theories of superiority or segregationist policy is inaccurate. A further proof that the covenant was not ‘racial’ in nature is found in the accepting and honoring of non-Israelite (and non-Semitic) people in Scripture:
    Numbers 12:21 – Moses marries an Ethiopian woman, resulting in Aaron and Miriam challenging his leadership; God forcefully supports Moses with no condemnation of the marriage
    Matthew 1:5 – Rahab, the Canaanite from Jericho, and Ruth, the Moabite, are part of Jesus’ genealogy
    2 Samuel 3:3 – David’s wife Macaah was a Geshurite, an Aramean
    1 Chronicles 11:26-47 – the list of David’s honored Mighty Men included Zelek the Ammonite, Ithmah the Moabite and Uriah the Hittite, all non-Israelite peoples.

    SECTION 3: THE SAMARITANS

    2 Kings 17:28
    So one of the priests who had been exiled from Samaria came to live in Bethel and taught them how to worship the Lord. Nevertheless, each national group made its own gods in the several towns where they settled, and set them up in the shrines the people of Samaria had made at the high places.
    The ‘Samaritans’ were actually foreign peoples that Assyria brought in to populate the Northern Kingdom of Israel (also called Samaria) after the native Israelites had been deported. The mixing of their own pagan religious practices with the corrupted ‘Israelite’ religion which Jeroboam established at Bethel, led the Israelites to avoid contact with the Samaritans as the new ‘Canaanites.’ Their racial/ethnic makeup was not the issue.

    John 4:21-23
    Jesus declared, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.”
    In His conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well, Jesus reveals the true nature of the point of hostility between the two groups of people (true verses false worship of God), and the ultimate goal of God to have all, regardless of race or ethnic group, to worship Him together.
    SECTION 4: The NEW COVENANT

    Matthew 28:19
    Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…
    While Jesus’ personal ministry was spent with the Jewish nation (Matthew 15:24), He did minister to non-Jews (Gentiles) who called upon him (the ‘woman of Canaan’ in Matthew 15:22, the Samaritan leper in Luke 17:16, and the Roman centurion in Matthew 8). The New Covenant, however, was for all people and the disciples were given the Great Commission to spread it to all, regardless of race.

    Romans 4:16-17
    Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring – not only to those who are of the law but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. As it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations…”
    After writing that all men (Jew and Gentile in Romans 3:9-10) are equally guilty of sin, Paul writes that the true heirs of Abraham and his promise are those people of all nations who believe.

    Acts 8:14; 8:34-39; 11:1
    These verses show how the Samaritans, a black Ethiopian and white Roman Gentiles receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Ethiopian is a direct refutation of racists propaganda that declares blacks are not ‘human.’

    1 John 2:9
    Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.
    The Greek word for brother (adelphos) is used widely in the New Testament to denote a neighbor (Luke 10:29), the ‘brethren’ of Jesus bound by belief in Him (Matthew 25:40 and Mark 3:35), and is widened to include all human believers and angels (Revelation 22:9). Thus, hatred of any person for any reason, including race, is sinful.

    James 2:9
    But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.
    James is specifically addressing favoritism shown to wealthier individuals who visit the church. This command, however, is applicable to showing favoritism for any characteristic, including race.

    Thank You Mrs. Michelle Obama!

  3. Bush Fought the Iraq War by the Bible and Look What Happened

    By Grant Lawrence

    “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
    Included in intelligence updates Rumsfeld gave to President Bush during the Iraq War so that his resolve to kill wouldn’t waiver.

    Well I don’t know about you. But having to give your President Bible scriptures to keep his resolve to keep killing seems somehow Unchristian.

    But then I gave up on being Christian awhile back. It wasn’t Jesus that turned me off so much as it was Christians like Bush.

    I really couldn’t understand how lying and cheating your neighbors in business and supporting an unjustified war to kill innocents was very Christian. Yet, there I was having to listen to my fundamentalist friends go on and on about how capitalism is God’s way of making us free and how Bush was doing the “Will of God.”

    If you believed all of the things those true Bible believers tell you about God then you would likely come to hate God. Fortunately, I never believed them because I read the New Testament many times and I read how Jesus told us to “Turn the Other Cheek” and to “Love” each other. Somehow killing Iraqis for oil didn’t seem like a Loving God would condone that.

    Still there is another lesson in the story of Bush fighting wars by the Bible.

    Just look how that war came out.

    It was a bloody mess. It made America hated by nearly everyone in the world and we are still there today trying to occupy that country while keeping some type of order.

    Fighting the war by the Holy Book didn’t appear to be a good idea. It would have been better for President Bush to use some good judgment and a bit of heart as a leader rather than to try to fit a war into the pages of the Bible.

    This is probably a good life lesson for believers and non believers. Don’t expect one book to give you all the answers. God, if you believe in God, or nature has given us a brain with the ability to reason. Fortunately, most of us were given some human feeling and it is always a good idea to apply that when dealing with human problems.

    Humans always want others to do the thinking for them. Even the President, a supposed leader, decided that a book or some other authority was going to give him the answers. But as history teaches us over and over, if we want a better life and a better world then we have to make good choices based a lot of awareness and proper judgment.

    The tragedy of the Bush years and the killing of over 1,000,000 people is that not only did our leaders abandon common sense but so did many Americans.

    A book, a talking head, or a supposed leader are not going to be able to give us all of the answers. Instead we have to do something adults are supposed to do and that is think for ourselves.
