When we lived in Germany, we had several German friends honest enough to say, “Of course, all Germans alive at the time of World War II knew what was going on with the Jews. They were disappearing from day to day. We just knew … But we also knew we could not ask questions and expect to be there to raise our own families!”
The Germans were no different from any other race. Hitler was not an anomaly among humans. We all have sin lodged deep in our hearts and need a desperate remedy.
What, short of our total depravity, would have put the Son of God on a cross to be tortured to death? Think about it.
He brings us very good news. There is a way out of our darkness. His name is Jesus Christ.
