J. Gresham Machen on the Department of Education

I came across this on the Center for Reformed Theology and Apologetics website. (Reformed.org) It is a really good read regarding the federal department of education, which Dr. Machen opposed. He gives his reasons for opposing it, along with addressing questions from some of the politicians who were in favor of it. Had the government listened to Dr. Machen I think public schools, and this country as a whole, would be in much better shape today.

If you haven’t already, I would encourage you to read my short post from yesterday and download a free copy of Dr. Machen’s book “Christianity and Liberalism.”
