ABSTRACT
The article emphasizes the need for permanent moral reform in religion as of 1921 through the establishment of Christian schools. It states that the moral reforms that were enforced during the last twenty years have been disassociated from religion. According to the article, sound morality must be based on religion, and what is needed is a campaign that promotes belief and love for the Almighty God. This can be attain through establishment of schools for which Jesus Christ is the light and inspiration.
