    It's a turn the other cheek, love and tolerate everyone philosophy.
    No, that's theological liberalism, not the Christianity of the Bible at all. The people holding to this "love and tolerate everyone (and their sin)" philosophy, are in fact probably more fanatically opposed to Biblical Christianity than just about anybody else.

    It's they and their liberal atheist friends (and sometimes others, including Muslims and Jews) who are always joining together, condemning and mocking those who stand for what the Bible actually says. In fact they're quite prepared to call the Son of God a "man of his times" who was not nearly so enlightened as modern man.

    This is simply not Christianity, it is a very anti-Christian philosophy.

    It's not a "religion of peace", just like Islam isn't. Many Germanics/Europeans died at the hands of Christianity for bloody ridiculous reasons. It's retarded and backwards to execute people for being "heretics".

    Anyway: Liberalised or not, Christianity has no place in a Germanic society. There are better fitting religions for our people. Heathenism, agnosticism or atheism. Why shouldn't we worship our own "gods" or no gods at all and worship foreigners instead? Is there anything Germanic in the Bible? Is "Germania" the holy land of god? Of course not. Christianity is appropriate for Jews, not for Germanics.

    You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
    —Matthew 5:38-42, NIV

    But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.
    —Luke 6:27-31. NIV

    I really would like to know how Christians can interpret these parts of the Bible wihtout making the whole Bible a pure interpretational guess work.

    I am no Christian myself, but I say one can't read the Bible without interpreting it, one has to consider the historical context though. If you read it you will notice the text contradicts itself many times. There have been countless revisions, the last revisions made the Bible very friendly towards Jews and conform to liberal democracy.

    Christianity is as alien to Germanics as Judaism and Islam.

    However, that wouldn't be such a problem if Christianity was a pro-Germanic religion. We got ideolgoies and customs from others along the years. But Christianity is not good for us. It's a turn the other cheek, love and tolerate everyone philosophy. Luckily, East Germany has been gradually cured from this nonsense.

    In eastern Germany both religious observance and affiliation are much lower than in the rest of the country after forty years of Communist rule. The government of the German Democratic Republic encouraged an atheist worldview through institutions such as Jugendweihen (youth consecrations), secular coming-of-age ceremonies akin to Christian confirmation which all young people were strongly encouraged to attend (and disadvantaged socially if they did not). The average church attendance is now one of the lowest in the world, with only 5% attending at least once per week, compared to 14% in the rest of the country according to a recent study. The number of christenings, religious weddings and funerals is also lower than in the West.

    There is a non-religious majority in Hamburg, Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. In the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt only 19.7 percent belong to the two big denominations of the country. This is the state where Martin Luther was born.

    Yes, I noticed, these blurry and contradicting statements alone are very anti-Germanic to begin with.
    I can respect Charles when he says the Bible is not that important, that is actually the only way to keep the Christian faith somehow Germanic, but most Christians I know would disagree, and thus they follow an alien religion.

    When the heathen vikings raided British monastries I think they were attacking christian imperialism as much as anything.

    The story goes that the Vikings raided churches for the gold. I doubt it. I think the vikings were far more sophisticated than that and they were attacking and looting churches because they represented the New World Order of their day. To this day Norway is the European country least influenced by Christianity.

    Yes, that is also on of the theories but it is hardly mentioned. But I have heard more then one time that the first vikingraids where retalitory strikes.

    Christianity is not alien since it is present for many centuries here, again: whether it is desirable or not is no indicator for nativity, Christianity absorbed much of the religion that was present in Europe before Christianity arrived.
    Once upon a time Germanics adopted a foreign pantheon and started worshipping the Asian god of shamanism called Odin. Noone can tell me Odin was alien to Germanics despite it comes from a foreign culture. Or, have a look at Greece, god Apollo was adopted from the middle East, still noone can say the cult around Apollo was no native Greek one; the oracle of Delphi once was a place of worshipping earthmother Gaia before a temple of Apollo was built there, to continue the oracle.
    What is, in your opinion, the real Germanic religion anyway?
