What does “Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward Men” Mean?

Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

Glory to God in the highest,
Peace on earth and good will toward men.

The message of the angels to the shepherds in Luke’s account is one of the most powerful messages in the New Testament. It has been memorized by children for centuries and touched the hearts of millions who long for – “peace on earth and good will toward men.”  It is a message that hearts understand, regardless of the doctrines lodged in the minds.

The message announces that peace on earth and good will toward men will come through the baby – the future Savior and Anointed Onebut not in the way that most people have been taught to expect.

What if all 2,000,000,000 Christians understood the real message of the real Jesus and did what that Jesus did and taught? What would happen?
