My Brother, My Enemy–Pastor Chuck Baldwin

“Think about what happened in Germany during the rise of the Third Reich. The vast majority of Christian pastors and churchmen turned against their freedom-loving brethren in the Confessing Church and helped Hitler’s henchmen and Stormtroopers to persecute, imprison, and even murder fellow followers of Christ. The historical record indicates that 95% of the pastors and churches of Germany supported Hitler and openly opposed Christian freedomists such as Martin Niemoller and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Niemoller was tortured, imprisoned, and sent to concentration camps, while Hitler had Bonhoeffer murdered.”

“How is it that so many professing Christians today can be so blind to the divine principles of liberty? How is it that they can be so quick to turn against their brethren who choose to stand and fight for these principles? I believe the answer is because 1) they are truly ignorant of the divine principles of liberty and/or 2) they are statists at heart.
