The Spirit of the Times

When the survivors of the Holocaust speak, the rest of us would do well to listen. As one of the survivors of their liberation told his story, he included how the SS guards changed into civilian clothes and tried to hide. The G.I.s had the survivors point them out so they could be dealt with. Then he said something never to be forgotten: "These men were not human. Human beings don't do what they did." How literally should that be taken? Was he speaking figuratively, saying that the men responsible for the camps were lacking pity, kindness or mercy? Or was he speaking literally, suggesting a nonhuman class of beings?
Demonic Warfare is an excellent 30 minute talk that deals with what we are fighting right now. If you don't understand this then you can't understand what is happening to us.
