Oakwood SDA School Denied Sabbath Accommodation To Play Basketball Semifinal Match. Governor of AL Responds. Oakwood Received A Stern Rebuke From God.
To spend money, which is so hard to obtain, on materials with which to play tennis and cricket is not in harmony with the testimonies which have been given to our school in Battle Creek. The danger of playing these games is pointed out, and those in the school discarded them. {8MR 74.2}
It has been understood all through our ranks that these games are not the proper education to be given in any of our schools. {8MR 74.3}
The school in Avondale is to be a pattern for other schools which shall be established among our people. Games and amusements are the curse of the Colonies, and they must not be allowed in our school here. . . . {8MR 74.4}
Tuesday, April 17, 1900.--My heart was pained to hear that notwithstanding my talk before the school on Friday morning, when I read a testimony on amusements, and presented before the students the danger of games, the faculty had not wisdom or discernment to understand how to deepen the impression made. . . . {8MR 74.5}
One thing is to be plainly and decidedly carried out. Amusements are not to be a part of the education given to the students in our school in this place.
"Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, BUT ONE RECEIVETH THE PRIZE? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they [do it] to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." 1 Corinthians 9:24-27.
"And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest." Luke 22:24.
