Hitler's Cross

The Third Reich Captures the Church—Can It Happen Again?

Pastor Lutzer | October 23, 1994

Summary

Hitler lied about wanting peace, and then he turned to prosecution and persecution to gain the church’s submission to the Third Reich. 

Selected highlights from this sermon

Hitler’s initial overtures toward the church of Germany didn’t seem that threatening so the church obeyed him and ended up swallowing Hitler’s lies. Then the laws came, and pastors started going to prison. Those who spoke against the Reich were persecuted.

As a whole, the church capitulated, there were very few resisters. Even when all the powers of the state and laws were brought against the church, some trusted in the power of the Gospel.
