An Alabama-based Bible school is under fire for using a quote by Adolf Hitler to promote children's education.

The billboard in Auburn for Life-Savers Ministries shows a group of smiling children and declares "He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future," according to Raw Story.

Hitler said the phrase in 1935 to encourage young people to join the Hitler Youth.

Under the quote is a Bible verse that reads, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."

James Anderegg, founder of LSM, told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that he was taking down the sign and "certainly never intended to cause confusion."

"Herbert Hoover would have been a far better one to quote when he said, 'Children are our most valuable resource.' We are a children's organization and had honorable intentions and nothing less."
