I just read Chicago UBF Sudnay message
. In part one of this message, the author talks in great detail about "humblemess". In the related Bible passage, Jesus told his disciples that they should become as humble as a little child. When Jesus said this, did he mean that all his disciples should become "stupid" in order to become "humble"? Somehow that is my impression about the Chicago UBF message.
The biblical meaning of being "humble" is not equal to being "stupid". Jesus said to his disciples in Matthew 10:16, "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves." A shrewd person with no innocence is a snake. An innocent person who is not shrewd is a duh. A spiritually "humble" person is not a "stupid" person. I think a spiritually "humble" person is shrewd and innocent, which is really difficult to achieve.
But the Chicago UBF Sunday message teaches us that we should be as "humble" as George Foreman who obeyed
"HIS COACH"! A great story is being used as a good example to advertise UBF propaganda here. How is a victory won? OBEY YOUR COACH! Or is it: OBEY JOHN JUN! Well, it used to be: OBEY SAMUEL LEE! (By the way, I am not saying a boxer should not obey his coach here.
) I think this is stupid, using George Foreman's story to advertise UBF propaganda and connecting it with "humbleness". Gimme a break!
