Can the Totenkopf be used as a symbol by Christians or is it inherently pagan/satanic?

I don't know, but the Hakenkreuz is better, and definitely a Christian symbol. As is the "sun wheel" which represents the 12 Apostles and Christ.

Christianity isn't hardcore
For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. - Deuteronomy 32:22-24

See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. – Deuteronomy 32:39

I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy. – Deuteronomy 32:42

Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. - Psalm 139:19

But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. - Luke 19:27

I mean when I think of hardcore I think of it kinda tongue in cheek doing things to prove you're a badass. You can be tough and strong these are good traits. Hardcore doesn't seem like a good trait if you're going for it. Like Jesus was hardcore because look at what he did but he wasn't going for hardcore…he just was. Also the posts in reply to me went from Jesus to hell to hardcore punk…so who even knows

It's gonna be hard making the Totenkopf into a christian symbol considering it has martial applications and history (ranging from the Prussian calvary, pirates, and the good ol boys in the SS)

But assuming the Totenkopf is 100% orginal and didn't have the historical baggage, how would it work as a Christian symbol? Jesus Christ defeated death and his body was sent to heaven. He didn't decompose into a skeleton.

Enlighten me how it could be a Christian image?

Why add symbols to a religion that isn't symbolic? Symbols are only necessary for representation and communication. Nazi symbols only communicate that you're a prick who wants to represent your heritage instead of representing Christ.

Exactly, Jesus was just hardcore. Sweating blood is hardcore. So is the crucifixion:

There is tons of symbolism in the Bible (not to say that it is not also literal).

user, you might be interested in looking into Christian symbolism throughout the ages, especially early Christian symbolism such as Christograms. They are very cool.

Yes, and I believe his victory over death is also a valid interpretation as well.

his victory over death
Makes sense, because He is above the skull and bones. I hadn't seen that before on a crucifix, very cool. I just learned that the shamrock is sometimes used to symbolize the holy trinity.

In recent years fedora tippers have been pushing the 'Third Reich was Christian' narrative, but if you actually look at the history the Third Reich was just one giant pagan larp. Hitler's public speeches were pro-christian while his private talks were [apparently] anti-Christian. Since Hitler himself was a career politician I believe it's foolish to believe whatever he had to say at face value. We can however judge him by the company he kept and the people he appointed: Martin Bormann, Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels and Alfred Rosenberg: All anti-Christians and neo-Pagans.

Under Himmler, the SS was to be "the vanguard in overcoming Christianity and restoring a Germanic way of living". Himmler's Sicherheitsdienst started the "War on the Church" in which Catholic churches and clergy were prosecuted. There's also the
Priest Barracks of Dachau Concentration Camp.

TLDR: The SS Totenkopf is pagan and anti-Christian.

Table talk
The book may be a fraud or may be heavily edited. The English translation included quotes that were not in the original text(the anti-christian stuff) and it was compiled by Bormann - anti-catholic, published after wwii, the French and English translation vary very much.
I have read several memoirs of actual soldiers as well as "Leitheft" and this is clearly not true. I am not saying 100% were christian. There were some pagans and people who were not christian But if you tell me that a slogan "Rex will win" of the Belgian foreign legions is pagan you should re-evaluate your sources.
It literally means "Christ will triumph".
Funny huh? Does not sound as a "giant pagan larp"

Jaxson Martinez

If you base your whole view on one book that may be fraudulent then you as well may stick with the official documentaries/movies.

Is there any good reason to associate oneself with the Nazis? Apart from being incredibly murderous and a completely failed movement, they were also inherently anti-Christian, sometimes implicitly and sometimes explicitly. It's one thing to be hated by the world for righteousness sake, it's another thing entirely to be hated by the world for adopting an unpopular form of worldliness.

Hitler never called it the swastika. He called it the Hakenkreuz, or hooked cross. This is the real reason kikes fear this symbol and have done everything they can to make it taboo or illegal. Kikes are called succh because they hate Christ and the cross so much, they'd use circles (kikels) rather than X's, because they look like crosses.
I have to dig up my source on the Sonnenrad representing Christ and the 12 Apostles. It could be a stretch, granted.

Adolf Hitler was, for all intents and purposes, the last Holy Roman Emperor. He fought and died for Christianity.

Ah, yes. The rainbow. The sad thing about that one is I see pictures of churches with rainbow flags or ministers wearing rainbow vestments as "proof" that the church promotes faggotry. We definitely need to reclaim the rainbow. Though there is a pretty simple way to tell the difference:
7 bands = God's symbol
6 bands = "Gay Pride"

Even ignoring tabletalks, Himmler was a know occultist paganfag, though, and all 3 branches of Christendom got into trouble whenever they disagreed with nazi policies.

Siding with someone who's gone full retard in the opposite direction, just because the other side does bad shit is the reason for most geopolitical messes nowadays.

Even ignoring tabletalks, Himmler was a know occultist paganfag, though, and all 3 branches of Christendom got into trouble whenever they disagreed with nazi policies.
Precisely. The fact that there is any doubt about the status of Christianity within Hitler and Nazism in general is an argument against it as any genuine Christian ideology must be first and foremost Christian, not a useful political addendum to be focused upon when most fitting to its leaders. Christianity is not a piece of some secular ideology, but the foremost and greatest part of a man's worldview and understanding; Nazism reduces Christianity to a sideline.
This is already disregarding the fact that Nazism and fascism delve too far into the realms of social Darwinism, mortal arrogance, and idolatry even at the best of times. The diagnosis of society put forward by the modern Nazi is hardly incorrect, but the treatment is that of an already once botched, tainted, and ultimately heretical ideology clouded by occultist nonsense and selfishness. There is only one way to eternal salvation, only one path one can walk to gain salvation in the next life and true goodness in this life; Christianity.

Please show me where I mentioned Table Talks.

Hey did you know about the 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar? It was a Muslin volunteer division, that totally means the Third Reich was Islamic, right? You can dance around my comment by talking about how non-German cannon fodder had different political and religious views, but the people who spearheaded Nazi ideology, people Hitler himself appointed were all either neo-pagans or anti-Christians, and that can give us a good guess on Hitler's views on the Christian faith.

For further reading i'd recommend: Inside the Third Reich, the memoir of Albert Speer, The Goebbels Diaries and the The Nazi Master Plan; The Persecution of Christian Churches.
Or you can actually bother to look up any of the men and events I listed in the other post.

Well who does not know about them. So what few muslims volunteered to fight bolshevism.
I will look at the books you listed.
I recommend you check out Leithefts, Mein Kampf, Campaign in Russia.
You know…I take at face value firstly the things written by the people themselves…not someone smearing them as "nazis" right in the title of the book.
I am no "stormfag" just to be clear here….but I disagree with your "giant pagan larp" simply by reading through memoirs and through official materials of the waffen.

In orthodoxy, it represents a legend which states that Golgotha got its name because that’s where Adam was buried, and that the blood of Christ soaked the earth right where the skull of Adam was. In a more mystical sense, it’s showing the death of Jesus defeated the curse of death and decay Adam and Eve brought to the earth.

Concidering the icon of Christ Pantocrator has a rainbow about it, I would agree.
This VSauce video from a while back is interesting though, since blue and the purple derived from it weren’t actually depicted in rainbows until fairly recently.
