== == Because he made promises that they found believable and he appealed to their sense of national identity and he followed thru with his promises to create more jobs and bring the German economy back from virtual bankruptcy. He restored their faith in their country and produced many amazing projects that showed the German people that they could be proud again, proud of them selves and their country. National pride and identity were restored by Hitler and his economic programs. Germans stopped feeling that they had no future, and saw that the National Socialist government had rejuvenated the country, as they had promised to do. He created a sense of "belonging to the society" and the average German was happy to support him.

Hitler was a baptized christian but he did his best to destroy it. Much has been made of the fact that Adolf Hitler spoke of "God" in his writings. But what kind of god did Hitler believe in? Certainly not the God revealed in Jesus Christ. He believed rather ala Hegel in the divinization of the State, the People, the Reich. And, as the soul and very personification of the Reich, this meant that Hitler believed he was himself indistinguishable from god and in this was like Caligula and the other ancient emperors of Rome, whose pagan brutality he so admired. Hitler was't a proper christian, He along many Germans were Nazi Christians ad Hitler was their god.
