The very colorful and passionate Martin Luther is famous for sparking the Protestant Reformation by nailing his Ninety-Five Theses to the chapel door in Wittenberg. Luther was a prolific writer who stood up to Pope Leo X and he translated the Bible into German giving the common man access to Scripture. Here is what Luther had to say concerning sending our children to school.

“I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt… I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth.”

– Martin Luther
