The Part of the Story You NEED to Know!
God has a PLAN for TRUE EDUCATION:
It is a plan of usefulness and freedom;
BUT: Satan has a counterfeit:
The Papal System of emulation, caps, gowns, degrees, prizes
STUDIES IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
E. A. Sutherland.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
The Students' Volunteer Band, studying fields of missionary activity in the Nashville Agricultural and Normal Institute, had the privilege of attending a series of studies given by Dr. E. A. Sutherland, president of the institution, revealing the fact that the great Protestant denominations failed to give the first angel's message in its fullness because they did not free themselves from the papal system of education. Clinging to this system in the end brought them into confusion.
The Seventh-day Adventist denomination came into existence because of this failure, and it must succeed where the others failed. Their birthright as a denomination is a great reform movement, the greatest the world has ever known. The Lord has been telling our people that, as individuals, we are in a positive danger of suffering the same defeat as they suffered, because we still cling to worldly methods of education. They failed to give the midnight cry because of their wrong system of education. We are soon to enter the period of the latter rain. We trust the following pages may be earnestly and prayerfully read.
