Joseph Goebbels knew the power of the Truth.
He knew that the Truth is a Person, a Person who will not share His preeminent, Ultimate status with anyone.
Hitler wanted to be Power incarnate in the Third Reich.
Therefore, he and his propaganda minister had to suppress every call and connection to the Most High.
William Shirer, author of "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich", reports that Hitler and his Nazi thugs arrested a number of religious and clergy before World War II. Let us not forget the bold martyrdom of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who refused to compromise the grace of God with the hateful State.
Truth indeed is power, yet that Power is embodied in a Person, Jesus Christ, who will strike down every thought and doctrine that rises against Him.
Let this example motivate every soul in the face of Government aggrandizement. Let every believer remember with gentle caution that the growth of the state is not just he diminution of the person, but an attempt to bring down the Person who has extended supernatural, eternal, glorifying grace to all who will believe.
