Ted Haggard, the former president of NAE, has been removed from his senior pastor's position at the church which he founded
a decade ago. Here is the link
to the church press release. It says, "Our investigation and Pastor Haggard’s public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct. The language of our church bylaws state that as Overseers we must decide in cases where the Senior Pastor has demonstrated immoral conduct whether we must remove the pastor from his position or to discipline him in any way they deem necessary."
Pastor Haggard should have learned from UBF leaders regarding how to protect his authority and his position by filling every committee with his loyal devotees. Then he could have survived all the accusations by calling his accusers Satan. He should have adopted Dr. Samuel Lee's ministry style so that everyone in his church blindly follow him as a great servant of God.
For example, Mark Yang
who was accused of sexually abusing one of his female members is still actively working in UBF with power and authority
. He is a member of the new committee in UBF HQ to develope an education program for missionaries as well as staff worldwide. In UBF it is a crime to accuse any UBF leader of any wrong doing
. UBF leaders accumulate their enormous power and authority to do anything they want. Anybody who is against it considered Satan. UBF is immoral organization and nobody is allowed to correct it.
This is generally the case in most churches in Korea. A good example is Rev. Paul Yonggi Cho and his church. He and his family members are accused of numerous charges. Some include even criminal charges. But he is still in power. He promised many times he was going to resign but he never kept his word. Guess why he doesn't resign? He says that he could not find anyone of his spiritual capacity to replace him to run the church he founded!
