Ouotes - Hitler's Cross by Erwin W. Lutzer

Chapter One
"We are naive if we think Nazi Germany cannot happen again.  In fact, the Bible predicts that it will."  p.21

The First Reich (800-1806)
The marriage of the church and state, with the state being the sword of the church.
"Interestingly, many true believers claimed that little changed when the Roman Empire was "christianized."  Previously, they were persecuted by pagan Rome; next they were persecuted by religious Rome.  Either way, the sword hurt just as much."  pp. 23-24

The Second Reich (1871-1918)
"If the First Reich prepared the way for Hilter by unifying church and state, the Second Reich contributed to the paralysis of the church by teaching that there must be a split between private and public morality."  p.25
"What is taught in philosophy classrooms today is believed by the man on the street tomorrow."  p.27
