A society depends directly on the upbringing of its children and their later education and professional training. Generally speaking, parents will pass on to their children what they learnt themselves and more or less how they themselves were brought up. Simply put:

In the early 19th century schools and colleges holding these high values were founded by Protestant communities in the United States. Believing teachers and professors, true Christians, had a vision: schools should be made available in remote areas where emulation and competing for grades should be unimportant, where academic graduation would be absent, where teachers and students would live together in small groups, where the students would manage themselves, where manual labour was offered as a core educational element and where the diet would be free of meat.

E. A. Sutherland, one of these Christian educators, gives us deep insights into these Christian colleges and how, as time progressed, these colleges were being made more and more worldly. In fact, the way children and young people are being brought up and educated is hopeless. We see a frighteningly similar picture all over the world. But as long as there is still time, parents have the choice to offer their adolescent generation new opportunities and to bring their children up in such a way that they are able to think and decide for themselves. Even if only a few with high Christian values and ideals emerge from this kind of upbringing and education, they will be able to influence the world for the better.
