This is the thirty-fourth episode in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series entitled Spiritual Lessons from WW1. This episode investigates Woodrow Wilson’s peace proposals at the conclusion of 1916. Proposing what he termed, “Peace without victory,” he attempted to work out a peace deal in which neither side could claim victory. However, neither side could fathom (after losing millions of men in the conflict) justifying such an agreement. In staring at the circumstances facing the world in 1916, one could conclude it impossible for peace to be gained. And the same would have been said two thousand years ago in staring at the breach between man and God. But God made a way. And it wasn’t through the Wilsonian path of a “peace without victory” but rather it was by means of a “peace through victory”.
