Are Neo-Nazis Present at Liberty University and Will Jerry Prevo Act?

How White Evangelical Christians of the United States Never Learned From the Christians of Nazi, Germany

It is some of the bleakest times in European and German history. In the 1930’s the Nazis obtained power in Germany and they used their influence in some of the darkest ways in human history and they tested German Christians in the process.
