7 Lessons We Must Learn from Nazi Germany

I recently read the book “When A Nation Forgets God” by Dr. Erwin Lutzer (pastor emeritus of the Moody Church in Chicago). Its sub-title appears above. Though it was published in 2010, it seems to be even more relevant now. It describes (and documents) how the people of Germany and its institutions were corrupted during the 1930’s to pave the way for Adolf Hitler and his ilk to take over Germany and lead the nation (and the world) down a path of suffering, death and destruction. The book is not just an important history lesson- Dr. Lutzer connects these seven themes to America in the current era.

I highly recommend this book. It features a great foreword by Eric Metaxas (author of the excellent book, “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy”) explaining the relevance of Dr. Lutzer’s book. I echo the words of Eric Metaxas, “Read Erwin Lutzer’s book!

Tredecim’s Thoughts

Yes, it’s just a blog, but I aim for it to be a “blog of a different color. ” It’s not going to be the “Daily Narcissist News” (I won’t be posting very often and it’s not going to be all about me). I hope to focus primarily on good books that I’ve recently read (and worthwhile videos I’ve seen).

In Mark 13:32-33, Jesus tells us to be alert and on guard. Only God the Father knows the time when He will send Jesus to collect the living (and dead) Christians in the End Times event called the Rapture. But we are expected to be alert for the signs that it’s imminent. Such signs seem to be growing in quantity and strength. As I notice something that seems significant in this context, I hope to report it in this blog. (However, if the Rapture occurs prior to my passing from this mortal life, I expect to stop blogging!)
