‘It would be oversimplistic to say that education stands in relation to humanism as regeneration stands in relation to Christianity, for education can be undertaken and imbued by purposes rooted in Christian faith, but education bereft of any awareness of the Christian doctrine of man and centered wholly in this-worldly criteria partakes of the nature of everything that is fully secularised. In its spiritually fettering influence on those who are essentially children of God, its function is to reduce to materialistic servitude. The ultimate purpose of humanity is the service of God. Therefore, totally secularised education is a contradiction in terms.
