The “Final Solution”: January 20, 1942

Today, on the 20th of January, 1942, Nazi Germany held the infamous Wannasee Conference. In this meeting, the “Final Solution” of the Jews was outlined.

May we use this sober anniversary to remind ourselves that murder was legalized in a land and time not so far from ours, that prejudice was carried out to its logical ends in a government that is not hard to imagine, that the climax had been reached in the outgrowth of anti-Semitism that had scorched through history: from they are not fit to live among us as Jews to they are not fit to live among us to, finally, they are not fit to live.

Nazi cruelty did not come out of a vacuum. It built upon evolutionary superiority, that all men are not created equal. It emerged from warped theology, that the Jews as a nation do not have a future, that they are a wretched race that God despises in favor of the Church.

This is blasphemy. Says Paul, “I say then, hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin” (Romans 11:1).

God has a future for His people, and He will not let them prevail in judgement forever. The Jews are special, they are people. Let not the Nazis terror spring up again by letting this nation of the Lord slip from our support.

  1. So true. It amazes me how many Christians forget the Church is rooted in Judaism. We may be different in some ways, but we are the same in many others. We are all people.

    1. You’re right, Heather. The Church did arise from a fulfillment of Jewish prophecy and consummation of Jewish ideals. Jesus Himself was a Jew! (And -that- sure gave Hitler problems, of course.)
