    Hitler was born a christian, used the lord in his speeches, Nazi uniforms often adorned lines from the Bible on their belts.

    Gandhi was born a Hindu and remained one throughout the duration of his life.

    It seems to me Hitler would be a lot more likely to accept Jesus Christ as his savior and ask God for forgiveness at the end of his life than Gandhi would have been as a Hindu who really never had any even minor involvement in christianity.

    What say you?

    The only thing going through Hitler's mind before he died was a bullet.

    But don't you think it's more likely he said a prayer asking for forgiveness before he pulled the trigger than it is that Gandhi prayed to Jesus?

    Only thing about Hitler is why would he ask for forgiveness if he thought he was in the right?

    Considering neither the resurrection of the just nor the resurrection of the unjust has occured, why do you think either is in heaven?

    I can't believe you would equate the actions of Gandhi as equal to the actions of Hitler. :eek: Maybe you should revise...

    Neither one is likely to go to heaven since heaven does not exist.

    Naw.

    I didn't "equate". I pointed to a fact.
