Mormonism and Adolph Hitler
Some while back, I did an article about The LDS church doing the sacred temple rites for Adolph Hitler. I commented about his residing now with Jesus and all those exalted spirits in [spirit] Paradise, the Mormon waiting room for the worthy dead who will soon be heading for LDS Godhood.
Recently, I received several interesting items on that subject. The first was a letter from fellow minister to the Mormons, Don McAreavy. He had read in a book, The Counterfeit Gospel of Mormonism, by Phil Roberts [page 174] that the temple work had been done for Hitler. Phil had written that on September 28, 1993, Hitler was vicariously baptized, ordained to the LDS Melchizedek priesthood and sealed in eternal marriage to Eva Braun. After talking with Phil Roberts, Don wrote to the LDS church in August of 1998 and asked them if this could be true.
In a letter dated September 8, 1998, Mae Dean Ashton, of the LDS church denied that this was true. She sent him a file entry showing genealogical information on his father, Alios Hitler as the closest thing in their archives. Having obtained copies of the actual documents, Don wrote her and once more asked for the information on Hitler and Braun. This time she wrote back [on October 9, 1998] and enclosed copies of their temple records.
On November 17th, Don wrote again and asked if work had been done for other Nazi war criminals and for some of the evil characters in the Bible like King Herod. He asked, "What is the criteria for making such decisions?" There was no response.
A Horror to Behold
About this time, I received the following e-mail:
Mr. Decker: No message to you would ever get through to your heart and soul - UNFORTUNATELY!!! My only message is that you have our deepest sympathy and greatest pity and we do sincerely pray that you live to a very very old age because what you then have to face I wouldn’t have wished on Adolf Hitler himself. Your eternity is one of horror to behold. Paula from Australia
I responded:Dear Paula. WOW. Can we talk about this?? You do know, don’t you, that the LDS church has done all the LDS temple work for Adolph Hitler and he is out there in spirit paradise with Joseph Smith now, waiting to become a celestial Mormon god. I guess you wouldn’t want to wish that on me. Would you? I sure don’t want to go there! Ed
Back came this response from a third party:
You really need to update your information. The above ordinances were performed but when it was realized that it was a prank on the genealogical database, the name was removed and the ordinances rescinded. This happened while ago but you apparently are not aware of it. But, hey, keep up publishing that outdated work. It only works toward discrediting you as a source of accurate information. D. Charles Pyle
In another e-mail, D.C. Pyle referenced material to support his position that Hitler had been undone.
Here is a secular newspaper article mentioning the expunging of inappropriate records and nullifying of ordinance work for Hitler before October 1999. Happy reading! See: S. L. Tribune Article: LDS Struggle to Keep Proxy Baptisms Appropriate http://www.sltrib.com/1999/oct/10091999/religion/35861.htm
Again, I responded:
Thanks...Great article.... I had just received a huge stack of church documents on the subject and planned to do an article on it either this month or next. One might wonder how these things could have happened. It wasn’t just one person putting that over on the church, doing the work on his [and other baddies] behalf.
There had to be at least another dozen people who were aware it took place; from the workers who performed the proxy baptisms and the ones in the washing and anointing rooms, to the veil workers and those officiating in the sealing ceremonies...And as I had always thought, there were angels who are sentinels in the temple to prevent anything or anyone unworthy or defiled from being there or happening there. Again, thanks for the article. Ed Decker
The Tell-Tale Article
LDS Struggle to Keep Proxy Baptisms Appropriate Oct 9, 1999
BY BOB MIMS THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE
"Four years after the LDS Church agreed to stop posthumous baptisms for Jewish Holocaust victims, perhaps the best-known of death camp martyrs — Anne Frank and members of her family — continue to pop up in Mormon temple and genealogical records. Further, the records show temple work has also been done vicariously for the Holocaust’s chief perpetrator, Adolf Hitler, and many of his Nazi henchmen….
Church officials acknowledge the renegade records are thorns in the flesh, but they insist they have done their best to honor their 1995 agreement to keep Holocaust victims out of temple rites — and to eradicate records for "fictitious or inappropriate" figures, like Hitler, when they are discovered……
The list spans both the noble and ignoble, famous and infamous. On one hand is a host of Roman Catholic popes and saints, among them Joan of Arc, Ignatius Loyola and Francis Xavier, the latter now listed as married, or sealed, despite lifelong celibacy. Columbus also is there, sealed to a Beatriz Enriquez Harana — the explorer’s mistress; so are Buddha and the mysterious "Mrs. Buddha." King Henry the VIII, along with several of his six wives, have appeared in church records, along with the Communist foursome of Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung and Ho Chi-Minh……
It is harder to understand why some Mormons choose to offer posthumous salvation to history’s tyrants and madmen. Herod the Great, whom the Gospels recount massacred Bethlehem’s infant boys in an unsuccessful bid to kill Jesus, was baptized in the Logan Temple in 1994; Ivan the Terrible, Dracula (Vlad "The Impaler," Prince of Wallachia) and Rasputin, spiritual adviser to the doomed Romanov family of Imperial Russia, also have cropped up in church files……
And then there is Hitler, whose dreams of a German Third Reich resulted in the systematic slaughter of 6 million Jews and the deaths of tens of millions of others during World War II…..[A Mormon man] acknowledged having been baptized for Hitler and several of his lieutenants — among them Martin Bormann, Heinrich
Himmler, Reinhardt Heydrich and Joseph Goebbels — in the Los Angeles Temple. …
"Policy is to remove them as soon as possible. Moreover, in the case of the names in question, Hitler, Eichmann, etc., the temple ordinance work for these individuals has already been nullified," Purdy said." [excerpted from article]
So…Where Have All the Despots Gone?
The first question is. "How could the Mormon church, under any circumstances of error, allow these and so many other despots of human history to escape the righteous judgment of God and become exalted beings in the first place?" Oops! It’s not a logical, satisfactory answer. It has gone on far too long and there are far too many checkpoints in the giant LDS computer systems for them not to know. Their legalism requires that everything be recorded correctly. It wasn’t just Hitler, Mr. Pyle! It’s a whole legion of mass murderers.
It’s one of those strange Mormon things. "Joseph Smith said, " The spirits of the just are exalted to a greater and more glorious work; hence they are blessed in their departure to the world of spirits." (Teachings, 326). Those disembodied persons that are not in this group reside in spirit prison. When the temple ordinances for them are performed, they are able to leave spirit prison and go to paradise, and reside there with Jesus and Joseph, among the just and exalted.
The second logical Question that begs an answer is, "now what?" What happens out there in Paradise?? Do the Mormon leaders there hold a series of excommunication trials like their ecclesiastic law requires them to do here on earth? Do these exalted personages become suddenly un-exalted and kind of go poof? It’s just crazy.
One day, Jesus and Joseph Smith are sitting there talking to the former mass murderers. But, at the click of a computer mouse in some clerk’s office in the LDS Family History Library, Zap! They are now unworthy again. Do they get up and run for spirit prison before they are stoned? Or what? Think this out!
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 2 Tim 4:3-4(NKJV)
As I urged you when I went into Macedonia— remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. 1 Tim 1:3-4 (NKJV)
...although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, Rom 1:21-22 (NKJV)
Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 1 Tim 4:1(NKJV)
Honest, truth seeking Mormon people must wake up to God’s truth and reject their false teachers and prophets. Remember these Biblical warnings; ask yourself the source of the doctrine that put Hitler in and out of Paradise with Jesus. The false LDS leaders must repent before they end up in the same place as Hitler!
