What was the difference between Saul (later called Paul) and Hitler ?
Both had a hand in persecuting and killing people. Both thought they were doing the work of God. In their minds they were doing the "right" thing. However, Jesus appeared to Saul (Paul) and corrected his ignorant thinking. And as a result Paul changed his actions and helped many people come to know Jesus. Would Hitler have changed in a similar way if Jesus had appeared to him, as he did Paul ? Would millions of humans been saved from the holocaust if Jesus had made a simple appearance to this one man ? Was Hitler, potentially, the next great apostle ?
"Saul for his part, was approving of the murder of [Stephen]. Invading one house after another and, dragging out both men and women, [Saul] would turn them over to prison." (Acts 8:1,3) "Saul, still breathing threat and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest . . . in order that he might bring bound to Jerusalem any whom he found belonged to The Way, both men and women." (Acts 9:1,2)
"Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord." (Adolf Hitler - Mein Kampf)
