Peace to men OF Good Will
Previous Image | Next Image
Description:
You hear it often enough in songs, read it even more often on Christmas cards and hear it said every Christmas:

"Peace on earth and good will to men!"

The sentiment sounds good at first, but if you think about it, the spirit is Masonic, and a distortion of the actual verse in St. Luke. I am not certain how this all began, the misquotation of St. Luke and thus a false notion of peace. I do know for certain that a variation of this misadventure appears in an old poem; perhaps the poet needed a line to rhyme so he turned the correct phrase around. Maybe he had nothing to do with the sorry outcome.

But here it is, heresy promulgated by our celebratory culture. Let us turn to St. Luke, Chapter 2 and see what it is the Angel announces:
And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace to men of good will.

This makes all the difference in the world, do you not agree? For how can there be real peace among men who are not of good will? This is not to say we wish vengeance, for that alone belongs to God, only that we do not wish them felicity to advance in their evil-doing, and that it matters what we believe and what we do and why we do it.
