The Christmas Truces of 1914: Peace in the Midst of War

The fighting came to a halt for many of the troops along the Western Front on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 1914. Most historians refer to this event as the Christmas Truce of 1914. But it wasn’t a single truce negotiated by diplomats at the highest levels of the governments involved. The Christmas Truces of 1914 were negotiated informally by the troops themselves, most of whom were Christians who sincerely believed they were fighting for a just cause, regardless of which side they were on. But no matter how noble they viewed their cause, they did not want to engage in the slaughter of their fellow human beings on the Holy Day.

Some of the truces were just a head nod in agreement not to fight for a day, while many involved fraternization, meaning the troops visited with each other. There were hundreds of these individual truces, perhaps even a thousand.

There were reliable reports of ...

John Y, your attempt to deny your attack on Angela W. is sinful. You knowingly aimed your comment at her - "You are in dire need of psychological evaluation for stating it is a sin to observe the birth of Jesus on 25 December" - this is a personal and direct attack on Angela.
As for Luther, do some research. He wrote 'the Jews and their lies', a book filled with rants against them...kind of like you did to Angela. Luther certainly isn't one I would exalt as some kind of religious 'hero'.
Either you delight in continually stirring up division here, or you are void of truth as you repeatedly try to defend your adherence to a dead religion and justify your own sin. Either way, may God have mercy on your deluded soul.
So I am deluded for observing the birth of Jesus on 25 December? Nobody cares that Jesus was not born on 25 December as long as His birth is celebrated.

Greenfly, You have got some nerve stating that I don't understand Justification By Faith Alone and I don't possess God's Spirit. If I embraced Jesus as my Personal Savior during an Altar Call at my brothers Non Denominational Church then I possess God's Spirit. And if I trust in Jesus alone for salvation then I understand Justification By Faith Alone.

Exactly. Christians need to celebrate Conception Day too. What are you folks gonna do on Conception Day? And since Circumsision Day is approaching, what are you folks gonna do for it?

Elmer, you sure are a thinker. What about Conception Day? We need to celebrate the conception of Jesus, because there can be no birth without the conception.

Curious to know how you answer this question. Moses forbade the setting up of pillars to honour false gods. Yet he himself set up pillars and before which sacrifices were offered. ( Deut 12v3; Exod 24 vs 4,5). Where do you find an explicit command for Moses to set up pillars in the worship of God?

Whilst you are correct about John Y I feel you know very little about Martin Luther as there are over 300 sermons on this website appreciating Luther as God's instrument to bring the church back to JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH ALONE (something JohnY doesn't understand and cannot explain as he doesn't possess God's Spirit).
I am sure Luther would have identified JohnY as having the spirit of antichrist within 5 minutes of reading his posts, but hey he was only a man of his times ( a Spiritual Giant).

“Now suddenly I realized that by faith in Jesus Christ my account is paid in full and I can live now a life of love not to earn from God my righteousness, but to manifest before the world the wonderful gift of righteousness, perfect righteousness in Jesus Christ.”
The church always believed in justification by faith alone, through Christ alone. Now I know I am being picky, but I needed to say that. No one has ever been saved without that thought and I'm sure you aren't saying there was no church prior to Luther at "any time" in history? Of couse there was. I have always thought that if the RCC hadn't of kept the scriptures away from man then

Greenfly,

Luther's hatred of Jews is what I was addressing, not his stance on justification by faith alone. We must be careful to exalt no man to a celebrity status; Luther included. No man is great Greenfly, for ALL have sinned and fallen short. Do bear in mind "So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do." Luke 17:10
There's an epidemic of exalting celebrity preachers to a status of 'touch not my anointed', may we never attempt to exalt a mortal man to a status none are worthy of. We see dead religions do this, i.e., the RCC's pope. Yes, be appreciative of how God has used Luther, but GOD gets the glory, NOT Luther!
I think this quote from Paul Washer applies here, "“There is no such thing as a great man of God, only weak, pitiful, faithless men of a great and merciful God.”

Luther was a great man if you listen to the sermon and ponder it and compare ourselves with him

Enough already! With your continuous parrot like posts and tripe concerning RC-mass and Luther..
Your continuous insults of people needing psychological evaluation are juvenile and are against forum rules.
Consider your ways
It would be against forum rules if specific names were mentioned. Just what is your problem with Luther anyway? He was guided by the Holy Spirit to not have a problem celebrating the birth of Jesus on 25 December, which means that the Holy Spirit has not problem with the spiritual aspect of Christmas namely the celebration of the birth of Jesus. And the Holy Spirit guided Luther to retain the Mass in the Lutheran Church minus the belief that the Mass is a sacrifice and minus the Catholic doctrine of Holy Communion, which means the Holy Spirit does not consider the entire Mass to be unscriptural or He would not have guided Luther to retain the Mass in the Lutheran Church minus the unscriptural parts. Your way of thinking is just as unscriptural as the JW Cult.

Thanks, Christopher000. I've been trying to keep my head down as well. It seems the best thing to do during heavy artillery shelling.

I know people who allow issues like this to define them. They equate Christianity more with their non-observance of Christmas and Easter than with the Christ who died to save sinners. I'm not saying that anyone on this board feels that way, but I could introduce you to a few.

Feel free to PM me if you like. God bless us, every one!

I haven't seen demonic group possession on an internet message board since the "Socially-awkward-jehovahswitnesses.com" was forced to merge domain names with "abusedbyRCCpriests-likedit-butstillhatechristmas.com"

Did you people really spend the last several days arguing whether a Christian has the liberty to worship GOD faithfully on Dec 25th? There are 365 days in a year, betcha a demon can find something wrong with each day when he owns you

This is a perfectly fine time to joyfully worship, minister and evangelize...so tune out the demons that infest this board. The harvest is great the workers are few

Hi Dorcas, probably so but for some who consider this topic a card that was dealt to them and for others who are genuinely interested in why some of us are so vehemently opposed to this "kitsch" festival, it may be very beneficial.
I like that he (Cooley) says that we know that people don't "worship" trees but he does say that we ought not to learn the way of the heathen. This was written for the righteous. Righteous people can learn the way of the heathen and God loved us enough to warn us.
Any way, I pray for Roman Catholics because I know a few personally and I have a pretty solid understanding of the system/catechism thanks to those who have been faithful in preaching and sharing this information. I rejoice in the Lord,especially, over those who have come out of it in order to rescue others. You are a blessing,Dorcas,Frank, and many others who are diligent and steadfast. A voice of reason is most refreshing.
