Godesberg Declaration Issued by Evangelical-Lutheran Church Hot

German Christians in the Evangelical-Lutheran Church issue the Godesberg Declaration, stating that "the Christian faith is in irreconcilable opposition to Judaism." It is signed by leading bishops from across Germany, including Theophil Wurm from Württemberg, Hans Meiser from Bavaria, and August Marahrens from Hanover.

The Godesberg Declaration says:

"In the realm of faith there exists the sharp opposition between the message of Jesus Christ and his apostles and the Jewish religion of legalism and political messianic hope, which is already emphatically fought against in the Old Testament.

In the realm of the völkisch life an earnest and responsible racial politics is required for the preservation of the purity of our people."
