  • hitler made his own choices.
  • I think Hitler is a pretty good example of why God obviously doesn't exist.
  • Hitler scared God away. I think that's spretty oblivious
  • I hope I don't get flamed for the following: The view that God is present in everyone is simply the view of one religion. If there are conflicts within that view, then it is the wrong view. If we are saying that God wasn't in Hitler, then obviously there is something wrong with this view. The right view would be true for all people at all times. I suppose you could get away with it if you argued that God was, in fact, in Hitler, but that we have free will. Then you must ask yourself, then what good does having God in you do?
  • We are all born with free will to either do good or evil; I choose good always. It is horrible that such people ever lived but we hope that the souls of the people he has tortured and murdered will find salvation in the after life. We all want to travel back and time and make sure he never rose to power. This is one of the deepest philosophical questions for the ages that we must wrestle with.
  • There is always a reaper. Hitler was just one in a series.
  • After a while, we can hush our consciences, can't we? Have you ever done something you knew was wrong, felt guilty about it at first, but gradually began to feel nothing? That's how a lot of people feel when they start abusing chemical substances, having promiscuous sex, or whatever, and by the time it's over they've developed a huge bad habit. On a much larger scale, we have the actions of people like Hitler, Charles Manson, Osama Bin Laden, whatever. They have no consciences. It can be argued that they squelched or perverted that inner voice telling them right from wrong.
  • Hitler turned his back on God. God was still in him Hitler just chose not to listen.
  • God does not control the actions of the person, we have freedom of choice.
  • You can either let the true God influence your actions or the wicked spirit creature in opposition to him....called Satan. It is very clear who Adolph Hitler followed.
  • free will
  • Ur Premise is False therefore most of the Answers U will receive will be based upon that initial ERROR! Here is what Scripture says on the Subject. Enjoy! John DOCTRINE OF THE INDWELLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT A. Definition and Description. 1. The Holy Spirit indwells the body of the Church Age believer at the moment of salvation, 1 Cor 6:19-20, 3:16. 2. The indwelling of the Spirit is one of the six permanent ministries of the Holy Spirit at salvation. The purpose of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is to provide a temple in the body of every Church Age believer for the indwelling of Jesus Christ as the Shekinah Glory and the indwelling of God the Father. a. There are no sacred buildings in the Church Age. The only sacred building was the temple in Jerusalem which belonged to Israel and was destroyed in 70 A.D. b. God the Holy Spirit makes a sacred building out of your body for the indwelling of God the Son and God the Father. 3. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is also a sign of the royal family status, which is superior to being in the family of God, as believers in past dispensations were. In the Millennium, all believers are filled with by the Holy Spirit, but no millennial believer is indwelt with the Holy Spirit. There was no indwelling of the Holy Spirit until the Church Age. Believers in the Old Testament were empowered by the Holy Spirit at times. We live on the best side of history, which is after the cross. Therefore, we are royal family to complement Christ's battlefield royalty. We receive six additional ministries of the Holy Spirit at salvation: efficacious grace, regeneration, sealing, spiritual gifts, filling, and baptism. 4. While no believers are indwelt by the Holy Spirit in other dispensations, all believers are indwelt with the Holy Spirit in the Church Age. The ministry of the Holy Spirit in other dispensations was technically the enduement of the Holy Spirit. For example, David said, "Take not Your Spirit from me," Ps 51:11. 5. The Holy Spirit indwells the body of every believer, but only controls the soul of the believer under the title "filling of the Holy Spirit" or "walking in the Spirit." 6. It is important to distinguish between the indwelling of the Holy Spirit which is permanent, and the filling of the Holy Spirit which is temporary depending on the use of the rebound technique. When we sin we lose the filling of the Holy Spirit, but not the indwelling of the Spirit. 7. The Holy Spirit indwells the body of the believer because the old sin nature lives in the body of the believer. In the life of every believer, human ability must be superceded by divine ability. Therefore, the dynamics of the Holy Spirit are clearly important. 8. However, the actual use of divine power from the indwelling of the Spirit depends on the filling of the Holy Spirit rather than the indwelling of the Spirit. The indwelling is not operational apart from the filling. 9. Therefore, the believer must learn to distinguish between the indwelling of Holy Spirit and the filling of the Holy Spirit. It is the filling of the Holy Spirit by which we deploy the problem solving devices of the protocol plan of God. The filling of the Holy Spirit is the first power option of the spiritual life and without this divine power it is impossible to execute the unique spiritual life of the Church. Divine power is necessary to execute the divine plan. Without the filling of the Holy Spirit there is no spiritual life. A perfect plan demands perfect power for its fulfillment. The Christian way of life is a supernatural way of life and demands a supernatural means of execution, which means anything the unbeliever can do is not the Christian way of life. 10. The indwelling and filling of the Holy Spirit are not synonymous terms. a. While the indwelling of Holy Spirit emphasizes the body, the filling of the Holy Spirit emphasizes the believer's soul. Therefore, the sphere of indwelling is always stated as the body of the believer, 1 Cor 3:16; 6:19-20. Your body is the sacred building of the Church Age. This indwelling makes it impossible for demon possession to occur. b. While both the indwelling and filling are absolutes (they cooperate with each other and are not antithetical), they are different types of absolutes. (1) The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is an irrevocable absolute. (2) The filling of the Holy Spirit is a revocable absolute through carnality. But the indwelling and filling are cooperating absolutes when we are filled with the Spirit. (3) When the Holy Spirit controls the soul, the believer is said to be filled with the Spirit. But when the sin nature controls the soul, the believer is said to be carnal--both grieving and quenching the Holy Spirit (4) The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is both permanent and irrevocable whether the believer is carnal or spiritual, winner believer or loser believer. (5) The filling of the Spirit is temporary, depending on whether the believer is spiritual or carnal. (6) The filling of the Spirit is related to the believer's soul. When the sin nature takes over the believer's soul, then the believer sins. (7) The purpose of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is to provide a temple in the believer's body for the indwelling of Christ as the Shekinah Glory. (8) The purpose of the filling of the Spirit is to provide the enabling power for the execution of the unique spiritual life of the Church Age. (9) Therefore, the indwelling of the Spirit is permanent, while the filling of the Spirit is temporary, depending upon consistency in using the rebound technique of 1 Jn 1:9. c. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is permanent whether the believer is spiritual or carnal, therefore, it is non-experiential. d. The filling of the Holy Spirit is temporary, depending on the experiential status of the believer. e. The filling of the Spirit is mandated by God, Eph 5:18, but the indwelling of the Spirit is stated by God as a fact, 1 Cor 3:16, 6:19- 20. Therefore, the indwelling of the Spirit is a permanent status quo in time. f. Both power options in the spiritual life (the power of the Holy Spirit and the power of Bible doctrine in your soul) depend upon the filling of the Holy Spirit. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is a temple in the body. The filling of the Spirit is the triumph of the soul. 11. Additional nomenclature related to the Spirit. a. We are commanded to "grieve not the Spirit," Eph 4:30, which occurs when we enter cosmic one. b. We are commanded to "quench not the Spirit," 1 Thes 5:19, which occurs when we enter cosmic two. c. We are never commanded to be indwelt by the Spirit (this always exists), but to "be filled with the Spirit," Eph 5:18, or to be "walking in the Spirit," Gal 5:16. 12. Personal judgment decisions, like how much you eat, drink or smoke, has nothing to do with the filling of the Holy Spirit. Overindulgence in these things is sin, but moderation in their consumption is not sinful. B. The Inner Conflict Between the Old Sin Nature and Indwelling of Holy Spirit. 1. The prior indwelling of the old sin nature from physical birth and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit from the new birth result in a great inner conflict, Gal 5:17. 2. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is the principle of victory over the old sin nature, while the filling of the Holy Spirit is the function of victory over the old sin nature. 3. Therefore, emphasis is placed on the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which divorces the believer from the power of the old sin nature and marries the believer to a second husband with a new way of life. It further provides a new marriage counselor for the new life in God the Holy Spirit. 4. The inner conflict between the old sin nature and indwelling of the Holy Spirit is portrayed in Rom 8:2-8 and Gal 5:16ff. The old sin nature has a head start at birth. It is only overcome by positive attitude to doctrine, especially the doctrine of rebound. C. The Prophesy of the Indwelling of God the Holy Spirit, Jn 7:37-39. 1. It was prophesied prior to the beginning of the Church Age by Christ. There are three spiritual uses of water, one of which is mentioned in Jn 7:37-39. a. For salvation, Isa 55:1; Rev 22:17. b. For doctrine, Jn 3:5; Eph 5:26. c. For the Holy Spirit, Jn 7:39. 2. In Jn 14:16-17 Christ again prophesied the indwelling of Holy Spirit, "will be in you." D. The Primary Objective of the Indwelling of Holy Spirit. 1. The primary objective of the indwelling of Holy Spirit is to provide a temple in your body for the indwelling of the other two members of the Trinity. This provides motivation for the attainment of spiritual objectives. 2. Advance to maturity and glorification of Christ is accomplished through the filling of the Spirit and perception of doctrine. 3. Perception of doctrine is related to the teaching ministry of the indwelling Holy Spirit, Jn 14:26. The Holy Spirit provided accuracy of recall through a photographic memory for the writing of Scripture, Jn 16:12-15 cf 1 Cor 2:9-16 and 1 Jn 2:27. E. Anointing or unction is a synonym for the indwelling of Holy Spirit, 1 Jn 2:20, 27. Anointing relates the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to the Church Age believer as a sign of the royal family of God. The indwelling of Holy Spirit is the royal family escutcheon. Because the royal family lives in the Holy of Holies forever, it is important that we are indwelt by God the Holy Spirit. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit demonstrates that we are royalty. Anointing appoints us ambassadors for Christ. F. The Distinction Between the Indwelling of Christ and the Holy Spirit. 1. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is both permanent and functional, while the indwelling of Jesus Christ is the guarantee of escrow blessing in the believer's advance to maturity. The indwelling of Jesus Christ is also in the body and is permanent. 2. There is definite evidence that the reversionistic believer does not benefit from the indwelling of Jesus Christ, 2 Cor 13:5; Rev 3:20. G. Oil illustrates the power of the indwelling of Holy Spirit. 1. Oil lubricates. Friction is removed from machines by oil, just as the Holy Spirit removes friction between people. 2. Oil heals and is used for medicine. The Holy Spirit heals breaches among believers. 3. Oil lights; the Holy Spirit illuminates the teaching of doctrine. 4. Oil propels; the Holy Spirit provides the thrust to maturity. 5. Oil invigorates; the Holy Spirit stimulates production. 6. Oil warms; the ministry of the Holy Spirit warms the life of the believer in relationship to the Lord and other believers. 7. Oil adorns; the Holy Spirit provides inner beauty. H. The Importance of the Power of the Spirit, 1 Kg 19:1-18. Elijah failed to learn the importance of the Spirit-filled life. He was not indwelt with the Spirit in the same sense that we are. 
  • Hmmm... hmmm... Seems like we're arguing much over nothing. Meh, that's all religion is anyway.
  • We have choices and Hitler will pay sooner or later , somehow , somewhere
  • What alot of people dont understand is that God is so great he gives us free will!We choose our own destiny!We can choose to be with him or against him he leaves that to us.He will always love us unconditionally!Just like people who have kids try to tell thier children what to do and what not to do.when they get older sometimes they listen and sometimes they dont but nomatter the outcome you still love them right?
  • Satan is present too. Our choice.
  • God breathed LIFE into man he didn't breathe God into man. So God created all things but he doesn't live in them. Like so many answers before God.......the creator gave us free will to do as we please.
  • God created us "in his own image." Then we take it from there. Like my opinion or not, I believe we all go to heaven no matter what. That's why God gave up Jesus to die for us . . . to save us from sin. I love it.
  • well hitler was his own man, and being. god, doesnt exist, hence why he didnt stop the extermination of thousands of his "people
  • Is there really a conflict here? The Bible, the Quran, and most other Abrahamic holy texts clearly establish their God's long track record of killing people.
  • angels and demons..picture one on each shoulder..our conscious...our awareness of right and wrong...listen to the angel or the demon in us all..God or Satan. God is present in everyone and Satan is also.. It is which we choose to listen to. Hitler, Saddam, are all certainly demon possessed.. This is just how I view this. Barbara
  • Have you ever READ the bible? Joe Hovah is a freaking homicidal, genocidal, megalomaniacal control freak to beat them all! Hitler WISHED he could be such a tyrant!
  • I have to agree, if a supernatural being is around us, and is not in us controlling ones thoughts, it is the choices of ones own self that reflects our decisions and not the supernatural being. AKA Hilter was his own person and his decisions are not reflective of the creator.
  • I think God persent in everyone really mean that everyone has something about them - some trait - that is attributable to God. Maybe Hitler was a good Dad or something. I mean we can't know everything about Hitler, maybe there was some good trait he had, or maybe one of his bad traits is the God-like one & it just went bad. Maybe Hitler knew what his good trait was and decided to surpress it. Who knows. All I know is we can't ascribe every bad thing to God and then call every good thing that happens or that someone has or does a coincidence or say God had nothing to do with it. That's just as hypocritical as the people who say they're Christian or Muslim or whatever and then turn around and make other people miserable by their words or actions.
  • God isnt present in everyone. Hitler being a great example. He is omnipresent in that He is where ever He needs to be. Not that He is in everyone. God wont dwell in an unclean vessel. Thats why there is justification, sanctification and the Baptism of The Holy Spirit according to the Bible.
  • fear can set in and make men of power do terrible things to protect themselves
  • God isn't present in everyone. Only after one becomes born-again does the Holy Spirit enter into a persons heart. Hitler didn't fit that Biblical description.
  • Hitler must represent God's heavy flow days.
  • God (any God) is present in anyone.... we just have to accept Him (or Them or Her). I get Hitler said: no thanks....
  • Who said God is present in everyone?
  • Evil is a parasite. It can do nothing on its own. It can only work its evil by harnessing and perverting something good and great. Remember, devils come not from fallen fleas, but fallen archangels. Hitler would have gone nowhere without his unshakable resolve, his dedication, and his gift for oratory. But also, Hitler was God's instrument of Judgment. He was God's answer to the prayers of a wicked and Godless generation. For two generations, in fact, starting among the intellectuals and the elite, and moving down gradually to infect almost all the next generation, the zeitgeist was crying out for a leader and state set free of the inhibiting principles of the Bible, that would take the race to its supreme destiny and perfection. This wasn't just in Germany, but was everywhere throughout the "civilized" world. Not that everyone was totally of that mind, but vast numbers, especially among the educated, were, and almost everyone was infected with it to some degree or another. God eventually relented, essentially saying, "This is what you want? Here. Enjoy." And also, "Now you have a choice of Gods: choose now whom you will serve." It's a pattern that repeats itself throughout the Bible and throughout history, on a vast range of scale from the personal to the global. But every generation faces a its own days of wrath and judgment.
  • Remember the god of the OT? How vicdictive and bipolar he was, well, Hitler is that old god resucitated
  • God is present in everyone who invites Him. If you haven't invited Him, He isn't there. I don't think Hitler was very interested in God.
  • Hitler was a Christian.
