After the signing of the Reich Fire Edict, Adolf Hitler went for full control of the government…

But Hitler was not through.

To formally and legally place the whole power of the government in his control required the Reichstag to pass the so-called Enabling Act. The Reichstag was functioning, albeit in a greatly restricted way. But this Enabling Act would formally take away its powers–for the good the nation, of course–and four years place them in the eager hands of the chancellor and his cabinet.

And so, on March 23 (1933), like a snake swallowing its own tail, the Reichstag passed the law that abolished its existence.

With the tools of democracy, democracy was murdered and lawlessness made “legal.” Raw power ruled, and its only real goal was to destroy all others besides itself! (Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas, 149).

Including the church!
