I guess the link wasn't really self expanatory on what I wanted to touch on. It seems that the Nuremberg Defense (I was just following orders) seems like a complete justification of the individual Nazi members actions according to the Bible (Romans 13).
I mean look at this verse from Romans
1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
According to the Bible, Nazi's who were told to burn and slaughter millions of Jews should have no moral dilemma with this if they are practising Christians. "Well the government authorities said to do it guess I have to."
Unless you think this is just God's master plan to get those darn Jews, this just confounds me...
