History Lesson: The Holocaust Controversy
The Vatican & the Holocaust:
Pope Pius XII & the Holocaust
From the article:
Pope Pius XII’s (1876-1958) actions during the Holocaust remain controversial. For much of the war, he maintained a public front of indifference and remained silent while German atrocities were committed. He refused pleas for help on the grounds of neutrality, while making statements condemning injustices in general. Privately, he sheltered a small number of Jews and spoke to a few select officials, encouraging them to help the Jews.
It seems that according to the article that the Jews were in a much better position if and only if, they converted to Catholicism. Once they returned to their own religious beliefs, that protection….was rescinded.
There is no dealing with the Devil.
Disclaimer: I have not explored the site that this article comes from. Take everything with a grain of salt.
After I read what I had written, I began to think about the church of Laodicea.
(update) I had read in another place about the Jews thinking that to go along with the Nazi’s would be less trouble. I’m talking about the issue of their gun ownership.They thought by hanging on to their guns it would cause them more trouble so they complied with their enemy. They gave up their means to protect themselves.
That’s why I was thinking of Laodicea. When trouble comes there will be no placating the enemy. And bowing and groveling will do nothing, at least longterm.
We can’t be fence walker’s. We will have to make a choice.
May God help us all to make the right choice.
