Anybody who supported Hitler wasn't really Christian.
Matthew 22:39
And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’


BTW: What about the atheists Mao and Stalin?

He believed he had some kind of divine providence or destiny to lead the German people to glory or something. He was particularly interested in obtaining sacred relics, the occult and astrology among other things.

If Matt 22:39 is the prerequisite for a true Christian then I've met like 3 true Christians in my entire life, and I've met thousands of Christians. Hell, I've met "true Christians" who weren't even Christian

Very unlikely Hitler became a Christian. Didn't show any signs of it and his actions would not have allowed him...or I guess I should say, him being Christian would not have allowed those actions.

Largely because, if you look at the things he said in private, he had nary a good word about Christianity. He as much as admitted to using it as a tool of control: "You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?"

Probably been less than 3. You've met people who say they are "Christians" who are not Christians, but you have never met a true Christian, if in fact you have met any, who is not a Christian.

There's people on this board who say they are Christian and are not.

Yeah. I mean, Jesus said you shouldn't claim to know when the end is. Never stopped you.

He was a confessed Christian and he truly believed he was doing God's work.
