While this direction is given, E.G. White continues that there is not a fixed blueprint to follow and that each plan must be taken in prayer and localized.
“No exact pattern can be given for the establishment of schools in new fields.”
E.G. White (SpTB11 25.1)
Additional warnings are given regarding conforming to worldly standards.
“God has revealed to me that we are in positive danger of bringing into our educational work the customs and fashions that prevail in the schools of the world. If teachers are not guarded in their work, they will place on the necks of their students worldly yokes instead of the yoke of Christ. The plan of the schools we shall establish in these closing years of the work is to be of an entirely different order from those we have instituted in the past.”
E.G. White (SpTB11 28.1)
“I have been shown that in our educational work we are not to follow the methods that have been adopted in our older established schools. There is among us too much clinging to old customs, and because of this we are far behind where we should be in the development of the third angel's message.”
E.G. White (SpTB11 29.1)
There is a need for something radically different, we must break the yoke that ties us to the world and accept our identity as a peculiar people in order to give the message to the world of warning and hope.
“Before we can carry the message of present truth in all its fullness to other countries, we must first break every yoke. We must come into the line of true education, walking in the wisdom of God, and not in the wisdom of the world. God calls for messengers who will be true reformers. We must educate, educate, to prepare a people who will understand the message, and then give the message to the world.”
E.G. White (SpTB11 30.1)
