Hitler claimed it was because when he was making paintings, a famous jewish collector refused to buy his art. But that reason really doesn't make much sense.

Other theories suggest it was because of a gas attack on him and soldiers with im in WW1. Claim is it made him lose his mind. Another theory is he had an STD from Jewish prostitute. Yet another is he may have had jewish roots.

No one really knows for sure. Though most people seem to believe it was because people simply blamed jews because they were "wealthy" and good with money, so the assumption was the "controlled" the world. Which sadly is still a belief that exists today.

Whatever the actual reason was, only Hitler knows.

Possibly? “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on him.’” John 3:36 (NCPB)

Hatred against the Jews was a feature of life in Europe wherever Christianity became the state religion. There were countless pogroms, mass slaughters and expulsions from their homes and nations carried out against Jewish people by 'Christian' nations throughout the Middle Ages and prejudice and violence on a lesser scale continued through the renaissance and into Modern Europe. The only real difference with Hitler was the scale and efficiency of the murder, intended to exterminate Jewish people once and for all, hence the 'final solution' moniker.

Please tell me I'm wrong, but I read your post as suggesting that Hitler was God's instrument in punishing the Jews for not believing in the Son.

They were slaughtered and run out of 114 (or so) nations before that. And Paul says they are under his wrath until the end.

Please answer the question without the double talk.

Are you suggesting that Hitler was God's instrument in punishing the Jews for not believing in the Son?

Why do the Jews exist? All of the Jews who accepted Christ remained Israel. Those who rejected him exist solely because of their hatred and rejection of him.

There may be a few Jews who hate Christianity but, in my experience, most are indifferent to it and some are actually friendly:

JESUS of NAZARETH: HIS LIFE, TIMES AND TEACHING ( 1925 ) by Joseph Klausner:

"In his ethical code there is a sublimity, distinctiveness and originality in form unparalleled in any other Hebrew ethical code; neither is there any parallel to the remarkable art of his parables. The shrewdness and sharpness of his proverbs and his forcible epigrams serve, in an exceptional degree, to make ethical ideas a popular possession. If ever the day should come and this ethical code be stripped of it's wrappings of miracle and mysticism, the Book of the Ethics of Jesus will be one of the choicest treasures in the literature of Israel for all time."

Read the Talmud and try again.

Yet another is he may have had jewish roots.

Genealogical research indicates that Hitler was 1/16 Jewish. It is not known if he was aware of this but it would have been sufficient to have condemned him to the death camps.

So, according to you, the Holocaust was carried out, by Hitler, at God's bidding, as a punishment for Jewish failure to believe in the Son.

I've never met someone so openly and blatantly anti-Semitic.

I'm not antisemitic. God made of one blood all people. Only racists think there are races.

I don't care whether you're talking about a race or an ethnicity or a cultural group or a religion - you believe that the Holocaust was carried out at God's bidding, by Hitler, as a punishment for the Jews not believing in the Son. Since you are a Christian and accept God's actions as legitimate you obviously accept the Holocaust as a justified act.

That makes you an anti-Semite.

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come, and even now already is it in the world.” 1 John 4:3 (NCPB)

It's about false religion and nothing else. Jesus was a circumcised Israeli. Don't lie about me unless you can prove your claim by my lifestyle.

Yet many are coming to Jesus...

Does this not mean we are to love them into the kingdom like any other peoples?
