What the Angels Didn't Say

What the angels said (Luke 2):
  • “Don’t be afraid! Look! I bring good news to you—wonderful, joyous news for all people. Your savior is born today in David’s city. He is Christ the Lord. This is a sign for you: you will find a newborn baby wrapped snugly and lying in a manger.” 
  • “Glory to God in heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors.”

What the angels DIDN'T say:
  • "And your savior will start a new world religion, that will in time take over the earth. One religion to RULE THEM ALL!"
  • "And he will raise up the Church as the seat of his power over the Earth and over other religions!"

Wouldn't that have put a damper on celebration a bit?

What are we celebrating? PEACE for the world, or domination of it?
