“For the wages of sin is death…”(Rom6:23)
Over the past three tidbits I offered ‘Biblical’ evidence that sexual perversion leads to violence, including murder. In this piece I intend to offer evidence of how sexual perversion has ended in murder…in our day! I will begin with a bang: Adolf Hitler.
In the book ‘Germany’s National Vice’, by Samuel Igra, published in 1945, on page 67, he writes, “Dr Hermann Rauschning assured me that he had seen a copy of such document, which was in the hands of a foreign government. It declared that Hitler(1889-1945) had been a male prostitute in Vienna at the time of his sojourn there, from 1907 to 1912 (18-23 years old), and that he practiced the same calling in Munich from 1912 to 1914 (23-25 years old). Mussolini obviously knew of the existence of this document, and had a copy of it at his disposal when he charged Hitler with pederasty and murder at one and the same time.”
In the book ‘The Hidden Hitler, by Lothar Machtan, published in 2001, on page 51, he writes,
“It was an open secret at the beginning of the 20th century that municipal hostels for homeless males were hubs of homosexual activity as well as catchment centers for stray individuals. According to Hirschfield, “homosexual occurrences formed a favorite and far from only theoretical topic of conversation” in these emergency accommodations. For many of their occupants, homosexual intercourse was a substitute for lack of contact with women; others kept themselves afloat by engaging in prostitution. Hitler spent over three years in this environment. The hostel Meldemannstrasse, a relatively modern comfortable establishment by contemporary standards, was an exclusively male preserve.”
On page 68, Machtan continues, “Meanwhile, we had gotten to know Hitler better. We noticed that he never looked at a woman. We suspected him of homosexuality right away, because he was known to be abnormal in any case. He was extremely eccentric and displayed womanish characteristics which tended in that direction. In 1915 we were billeted in the Le Febre brewery at Fournes. We slept in the hay. Hitler was bedded down at night with Schmidl, his male whore. We heard a rustling in the hay. Then someone switched on his electric flashlight and growled. “Take a look at those two nancy boys.” I myself took no further interest in the matter.”
On page 100, Machtan continues, “In France in 1916/17, according to the said documents, Hitler posed in the nude for a homosexual officer named Lammers—a Berlin artist in civilian life—and subsequently went to bed with him.”
Or, in the book Napoleon and Hitler, by Desmond Seward, on page 148, he quotes Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, who referred to Hitler as “that horrible sexual degenerate”. In addition, in page 299, Seward also writes, “the files of Viennese police list him (Hitler) as a homosexual.”
Or, in the book “The Pink Swastika” by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams--one of the top five books I’ve ever read by the way—who identify not only Ernst Rohm, but many of Hitler’s top aides as violent homosexuals; the worst of which was Ludwig Tiene, who was a major leader at Auschwitz death camp. Lively and Abrams quote Frank Rector in his book ‘The Nazi Extermination of Homosexuals’, who writes that Tiene “became the most prolific mass murder of all time”.
When the Nazis came to power, Germany was a bastion of sexual perversion from fornication to adultery to homosexuality. I’m sure you are probably wondering, “how Hitler’s homosexuality connects to the murder of 6 million Jews?” As I have endeavored to prove through the scriptures in the three previous tidbits, the connection is through the understanding the nature of sin, and how it works. One of the characteristics of sin is that it develops or matures over time. As sin develops it sends impenitent sinners spiraling downward into ever-increasing darkness, climaxing in death or murder. In other words, apart from repentance, one sin irresistibly leads to another in numbers and intensity. The Bible calls this phenomenon lasciviousness (Gal5:19), also known as licentiousness—which actually means sexual license.
In other words, sexual intercourse outside of God’s boundaries is not merely what a man and woman naturally and consensually do. Satan uses man’s sin nature, not exclusively…but especially through sexual deviancy to unleash the power of the sin nature plunging a person or people into greater and greater evil—which Biblically and historically only concludes in destruction, death, and murder!
Remember, although Cain committed the first murder against his brother Abel, the Bible does not offer sexual perversion as the cause. However, this situation does unveil the incredibly fast maturity of sin—from a ‘seemingly’ innocuous action of eating a forbidden fruit---to the murder of one brother by another…all happening within ‘ONE’ generation!!!!
However, also remember, from the Genesis 4 murder of Abel by Cain, sin matured and exponentially multiplied landing us in Genesis 6:5: “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” This statement is made in the context of sexual perversion (Gen6:1-4)!!!! This does not mean sexual perversion was the only sin man was committing at this time. However, it does illustrate that sexual perversion was the primary conduit in facilitating the propagation of the power of the sin nature over the known earth--causing God to pour out His wrath in order to preserve 8 people! If God had waited, man’s sin nature would have wholly annihilated himself!
On the contrary, in God’s mercy (Eph2:4), He so loved mankind(Jn3:16) that He dealt with his sin nature through the Cross(Col2:14); hence, God gave His only begotten Son as our substitutionary sacrifice(1Pet3:18)! HALLELUJAH!!!!
Like virtue in the culture, repentance has been cancelled in the church.
