  • Yes he was a Christian.

    Hitler believed that Christ was his Lord and Saviour. So technically (like him or not, what he did or not) he was a Christian. If I remember correctly ( I haven't been in a History class in a couple of decades.. lol) Hitler was a bapitised Roman Catholic, he was even an alter boy.

  • Hitler was a fan of Nietzche and was raised by a Christian family. I don't know about his feelings, but his works were not Christian. You can only know a tree by it's fruit.

  • Hitler was raised in the Catholic Church but all accounts show he was influenced by Pan-Germanism which was anti Catholic. He used Christianity somewhat to garner support in his early rise to power. He was not a believer in organized religion.

  • Hitler may have called himself a Christian...but he was not a true follower of Christ. I can say that I'm bird but it doesn't mean that I'm gonna sprout wings and fly away.

  • No, I don't believe so, from what I have read about him, he was raised Catholic, but left his beliefs. He apparently was against organized religion, but considered himself some what spiritual. He made conflicting comments, and it is believed that his comments about God, were a way of manipulating the people to get them to follow him. He used it to his advantage. So I have read.

  • I could call myself a bird, a model or a Christian doesn't mean it's true. Hitler, like many, claimed to be a Christian, but he , like many missed the message.
