What does Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men REALLY mean?
Peace = A state of harmony, free from disturbances Goodwill = Favor or advantage
Does this imply the world should be a peaceful place and all mankind should have a favored life? The world certainly doesn’t seem to be a peaceful place and I don’t know anyone who isn’t affected by the economy these days, yet the message of the Bible is peace and love.
So what does this all mean? Well according to the angels in Luke 2:14, - they were declaring peace to those on whom His favor rests!
