Continuing the presentation of Cajus Fabricius’ book ‘Positive Christianity in the Third Reich’
Positive Christianity was a practical Christianity, which was seen as Christianity in actual practice, rather than just in words.
Real Christianity is not practiced in a church, however before books were available, the church was the only place where instruction in Christian morality could be found.
It is this dissemination of Christian morality that Hitler saw as being the most important role of the church.
The National Socialist movement made war on all those parties who would degrade the church into merely being an instrument for a party’s interests.
The Positive Christianity of National Socialism was an earnest endeavour to practice what Caius Fabricius called ‘the real thing.’
