A poll said that 37 percent of Germans 60 or older saw positives in some aspects of Nazism: "...good sides (such as) the construction of the highway system, the elimination of unemployment, the low criminality rate (and) the encouragement of the family."

The highway system wasn't about bringing forth signs of repentance. Employment cannot be taken in isolation. It is better to die in the flesh than work for Satan's magnification. The so-called low criminality was not a lessening of criminality. It was changing the definition of what is criminal behavior. The acts of the Nazis were criminal but were not treated as such by the Nazis. As for the encouragement of the family, the Nazis encourage the mass production of babies by the SS and those babies were raised without their parents. Now, just how good or bad such rearing is depends upon the spirit of those providing the upbringing. Suffice it to say that the Nazis were planning to raise up eugenically produced Nazis.

Did the trains run on time as they did in Italy under Mussolini? Yes. That orderliness is a partial-truth that does not define Nazism in general. In general, it was an unmitigated disaster. That's the point here. There wasn't anything mitigating.

    I think you expect too much out of people. I'm sure a lot of the Romans in the Roman Empire thought things were absolutely grand when all was well. And that society was certainly Godless. I believe so strongly that a Christian can show love best be helping this world. However wide is the road to damnation and many walk down it. If you expect to create a perfect world on your own, abandon that notion. Only major intervention of God will do that. Yes, praise the Lord, that intervention is coming. But until then realize the world is blinded. Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. Why? Because man has to realize that God's way is the best. Unfortunately they are going to learn the hard way.

    I love your site and think it is excellent. I received information about it from" target="_blank">
    Do your best to be salt and light and don't give up the faith. Store your treasures up in heaven because the theives and the moths will destroy the ones down here.

    Hi John,

    John, my friend, I detect in you the ability to comprehend--"So close, yet so far."

    The problem with the world is that its standard is too low. As Christians, we are to be as Christlike as we are able. Jesus became the new standard. His standard is vastly higher than the standard set under Moses or any other lawgiver of any other nation. We will be measured against what we knew we ought to have been doing. The more souls measure up, the better for all concerned. We speak here both quantitatively and qualitatively.

    Raise the standard, brother. Don't give them the impression they can relax.

    You wrote, "If you expect to create a perfect world on your own, abandon that notion."

    Oh, I never had it. We can do nothing without Jesus and God and the Holy Spirit. We can do nothing alone. I'm not alone. I'm with them.

    Yes, God is intercessional. That's the nature of forgiveness and the infinite things God does.

    You are right. "The world is blinded."

    You also wrote, "Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better." See "Chapter 2: Christian Conservatism: The Most Significant Confusion" of our work: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CONSERVATIVE-REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN: Jesus is a small-c communist. You will find our words, "...things are going to get much worse before they get better."

    Thank you for loving our site and saying it is excellent. Please visit often. Let others know too. We can do nothing alone. We need the help of others so we may help others to help yet others, ad infinitum.

    God bless you, John. Keep seeking righteousness. Don't fall to the temptation to let down. Encourage people to rise. Set the goal at perfection with God. Those who want us to fail, want us to lower our standards. Don't be an offense to our brother, Jesus.

    Your brother,

    Thanks for the encouraging words.

    You are right that God is with every believer. Every time we love others be it a smile, a kind word, or teaching Jesus it changes to world. But they world system will not change until Jesus reigns for his thousand years. That time will begin with an unprecedented and powerful act by God.

    If 37% of those Germans had said "overall Nazism wasn't bad" or "Hitler was right" I would be alarmed.

    Finally about "so close yet so far" I don't know. I have a long way to go that I know. But I do my best and try to follow Jesus as much as I can. I'm glad God doesn't require me to be perfect.

    Hello again, John,

    John, Jesus is within. The kingdom is within. Jesus reigns within. We have a part in the whole one who is God. We are of the whole. We are one with God. Wherever we are, God is.

    The world changes. The more souls come to God and God calls them and chooses them, the more the Christ-spirit in Jesus reigns in the heart of humanity.

    There will be "an unprecedented and powerful act by God." The things concerning us have an end.

    We understand what you mean by choosing not to be alarmed by the statistics concerning the Germans. We are saying that the things that the poll projects as positives weren't in reality positives. They were negatives. We are saying that the meaning of the term positive has been twisted so the people don't know which way to turn. We are straightening out meanings so the flock will head in the right direction of harmlessness, which Jesus taught.

    You also wrote that you are "glad God doesn’t require" you "to be perfect." No, John. Don't be glad for that. Be terrified of that thought. Purge it from your heart. It is misdirected.

    Remember the words of Jesus Christ. Be ye therefore perfect. He sent the Holy Spirit to remind us. It dwells within. The law is written on our hearts. If we let stand twisted and diminished meanings, if we forget the words of Jesus, we turn away from God and are lost and can become spiritually blind and fall into great wickedness harming others and ourselves. Have mercy upon them, John. Teach the children properly. It's what we needed and still need.

    Peace, love, and truth to you, John.

    You are right to advise that we store up treasure in heaven. We do that by giving all we have to feed the lambs and sheep and the poor. By so doing, we will be following Jesus. We will be doing what he told us to be found doing when the Son of man comes.

    The Son of man is here. What does he find us doing? What do our consciences tell us?

    Your brother in Christ if you will,
