    THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY IN THE ADVENT MOVEMENT-NO. 4

    (Two morning studies given August 19, 20, 1937, at the World Educational Convention, Blue Ridge, North Carolina)

    By W. A. Spicer.

    AND now here is our educational system. We may well speak of this at this Educational Convention at Blue Ridge. Christian education, we call it. It has been wrought out to fit the needs of the advent movement with its commission to carry the judgment-hour message to all the world. An editor of a leading religious journal of America wrote:HEVI 94.1

    “Small though the denomination is, it has its missionaries scattered through every region of the globe, working with a consummate skill that is systematically taught as a part of their regular training.”HEVI 94.2

    This system of education that has come to us has done a training work that the religious world remarks upon as being distinctive. And in the world of secular education this system of ours attracts attention. A little time ago, at the North Pacific Union session, Mrs. J. W. Harmer, of Oregon, told me of listening to an address on education by the president of a State teachers’ college, present from another State. He devoted the last fifteen minutes of his address to the system of education which the Seventh-day Adventists had developed. He spoke of the denomination as, “A little people who have something we need to make our educational system a success.”HEVI 94.3

    He was referring especially to our way of connecting intellectual education with industrial education,-the training of the hand as well as of the mind and heart. Now how did we get into this system of Christian education that is distinctive in all the world, and that has brought such fruitage in training workers for gospel service? You know how we were led into this thing. You know the years in which that gift of the Spirit of prophecy continually warned us and exhorted us and drew us and marked the way for us to follow. All through these books by the Spirit of prophecy, the true educational idea is emphasized. Four or five of these books are dedicated entirely or nearly so to education.HEVI 94.4
