Dr. Hodge’s educational prophecy came true

It is interesting that one hundred years ago, at a time when most people were totally oblivious to the direction the public educational system was moving, Dr. A. A. Hodge of Princeton saw with an eagle eye the direction it was taking…And here is what he prophetically declared a century ago:

“I am as sure as I am of Christ’s reign that a comprehensive and centralized system of national education, separated from religion, as is now commonly proposed, will prove the most appalling engineer for the propagation of anti-Christian and atheistic unbelief, and of antisocial nihilistic ethics, individual, social and political, which this sin-rent world has ever seen.”

He was saying that a state public educational system separated from religion would become the most atheistic, anti-Christian, nihilistic system the world has ever seen. How remarkably accurate a prediction!
