Adolf Hitler killed millions of Jews; was the killing of these Jews a judgement by God?
It is a general consensus among Christians and Jews that Gods wrath is delivered upon nations, communities and persons who are unrepentantly wickedly in his sight. Was Hitlers murdering of the Jews a judgement by Yehova for their wickedness as a nation?
Whether it was or it wasn't isn't something for a man to judge. God has his own purposes and plans in things that happen. During the Roman times, when Christians were persecuted, was that a plan of God? Yes, it was, so that Christians would get out of Jerusalem and spread the word of God throughout the world.
With some saying that God is not there, does not mean anything for people who have personally experienced the power of God in their life.
No. That would also mean that the Inquisition was judgement from G-d and that every disaster is which I find it hard to believe. My concept of G-d is that of a loving father. It's weird that lately, after hearing of the Haiti earthquake, I get the same response from "happy" Christians AS IF they rejoiced at other people's misery... Hitler, like some Islamic fanatics, was a crazy anti-semitic small bloke with repressed sexual desires and whose dog didn't even love him.
@debeaner --- Oh I agree with you!
It is a consensus among SOME Christians and Jews -- not the general public.
Hitler was an evil man. He was by NO MEANS the "hand of God". In fact, in the Bible, God warns against harming his chosen people (Jews).
Those who say otherwise are not reading and following the New Testament. Christians are supposed to base their faith in Christ and not on the "old" ways before His birth, death and resurrection.
One might see how those of the Jewish faith may see it as punishment, but there are more of them who recognize it for what it was -- persecution by an evil tyrant and his followers.
Shows you that one can, have freemason connections, rise to power overnight, conquer half the world and then in a twinkling of an eye, it can all be taken away from you and you die early. ( supposing hitler died, the books are still open on this one, i think he did).
So one can indeed be seated on the throne of god as a god and the true god can take it all away very quickly.
Man puts kings on thrones and god deals with it or was god surprised that hitler slaughtered jews, no. or in the old testament what does the book say, "i cause nations to rise and to fall that my will be done". Take your pick
Bottom line, God is in everything and god uses everything and god makes repairs to everything.
The great tribulation many people say is gods wrath poured out and what a hurtful god that must be to do such a thing, but what people don't realize is that its not the well off and the comfortable that come to god but the lowly and the poor and the afflicted. So while all these horrible things happen in the world remember there is always an unseen "saved soul" count going on. This world is not important, the next world is!
What are you with these questions, a senior member of the KKK? So God was punishing the jews for being horrible by making the germans be horrible? Thats stupid. What is the matter with you?
No, it was Hitlers evil, and the jews play an important part in the future, and there will be another holocaust as we go into the 7 years of peace, and before armageddon, the nations under antichrist come against israel and the jews once again, but only to be destroyed utterly. The hatred for the jews is not Gods judgement, for they are his people, it is the hatred of satan that is the blinding factor in all of this, and it is him that is the source of all hatred and animosity against israel
Sixty-nine (69) million Humans, were killed in World War II, fought between an insane people ... during 1939-45 period ..
Of those killed, "only" Six (6) million were Jews ... the "other" Sixty-three (63) million, killed were also humans ... and these now forgotten humans, belonged to other Nationalities.
In Creation, Allah hath Granted Humans, the absolute Freedom, including the Freedom, to Follow His Shown Way ... or, to follow any other way... the Insane are those, who always choose the way of Satan !
Hitler, Einstein, and Oppenheimer ... and then, Churchill, Stalin, Mussolini, Hirohito, and Truman, all Chose, the way of Satan.
So stop blaming God, for what the followers of Satan, did, of their free choice, and willing...
No one ever learns whats Right, from Satan ...
Don't you see, they are at it again !
Un fortunately, Adolf Hitler was following his free will, and so the annihilation of not just Jews, but all those he felt were inferior, was a judgement by Adolf Hitler.
I would never believe God would be behind something like that, when God strikes everyone knows it is God, if He was behind this He would have said so, after all, who is going to do anything about it? They will know it is Him to destroy Gog and Magog when they come down against Israel. He will wipe them out with fire and brimstone. I think we get from God what we ask for but God is not responsible for every death and for the Christian He has taken out the sting of death.
Adolf hitler was just one man. He had thousands of followers who submitted to his rule and authority. It was actually Hitlers top general's and officers who actually carried out mass murder.
God created man, God created Satan, God created freedom to do as one pleases. Of course their are consequences for this. Who killed the historical Jesus, and then who destroyed the Jewish nation and had hundreds of jews crucified? Was it Rome? God? Satan? Did the jews, or any of the other millions of gentile victims of the Nazi's die as a substitution for our sins?
I believe their was at least one or more unknown evil high priests living in these times, and that they contributed greatly to these evil things. If one believes that their is a god and that he does intervene, then one can conclude that God approved of these things for some unknown reasons. We are all familiar with the saying "God works in mysterious ways" right? Please, do not think I am anti-semetic or approving of such an atrocity. No one deserves this, and those responsible for such horrible sins deserve death.
The general public doesn't necessarily think that the Holocaust and other man-made disasters are judgements by God. Actually, I don't think a lot of progressive Christians or Jews think that either. A Holocaust, terrorist groups, etc., indicate that people are not in right relationship with G-d or Allah. Our spiritual fathers, mothers did not and do not accept death as a good--in fact, the worst crimes include killing because the murderer has taken life away from generations... broken relationships come from us, you and I; we are responsible, not G-d. not Allah.

I mean, Good and Bad are relative. So, when American soldiers kill Iraqi civilians, that's OK. When Bin Laden destroys WT Centre, that's bad? I mean, how do you define a universal moral principle?

Jews were delivered from Egypt by God in the Old Testament but weren't delivered from Hitler. Why? Why did God suddenly go silent after Jesus?
