The Part of the Story You NEED to Know!

God has a PLAN for TRUE EDUCATION:

It is a plan of usefulness and freedom;
A plan that draws His children close to His Heart
A Plan that is as a Breath of Fresh Air to this Darkened World.

BUT: Satan has a counterfeit:

The Papal System of emulation, caps, gowns, degrees, prizes and artificiality;
A System of Worldly Honor, Pride and Bondage to Custom;
A System that places a Yoke of Bondage on all;
A System that forces students to mindlessly repeat traditional twaddle passed down to them by 'Blind leaders of the Blind'
A system that makes all connected with it blind-drunk on the Wine of Babylon

 We have all been Victimized by this Counterfeit, bowing at its shrines--offering our children on its altars; It is time to throw out Babylon's Wine, sober up and learn from History what God really wants for Man's Education!

Foreword

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.
