Life of a 2nd gen in UBF 
14th-Aug-2006 11:22 pm
There is a life testimony of a UBF 2nd gen posted on Chicago UBF website. It shows very realistically about the life of a UBF 2nd gen. One can see how a UBF 2nd gen's life is controlled and being "pushed" by using the Bible. The 2nd gen writes very honestly about his misery and struggle to live under the UBF culture where condemnation prevails.

He also mentions the difficulty to live with UBF Korean parents who are UBF missionaries. You will see that UBF Korean missionaries apply their Korean-style parenting to "discipling" their sheep and UBF-style discipling to their parenting. One will conclude after reading the life testimony that the whole UBF paradigm of serving God's work should be dismantled since it is only based on Korean culture but never on the Bible.

Nobody seems to understand this poor 2nd gen. His parents are just trying to mold their son into a loyal UBF member. And everyone in UBF is collaborating to achieve this goal. I think that they are trying to suffocate him. They must teach him the truth and freedom in the Gosepel of Jesus. Otherwise, they will only make his heart hard toward God. They might succeed in making him a loyal UBF member. But they will never succeed in making him a true child of God. I think that his parents have more problem than he does. The best way to solve the problem is to for the parent to leave UBF with their son. I did and it is working.

I noticed in UBF that whenever a person has a problem with UBF "training", the UBF shepherds try to solve the problem by making their sheep write a testimony. In the testimony, they manipulate their sheep to "repent" their sin of rebellion. This life testimony is just one of those repentence testimony. In this repentence testimony, the sheep finally gives up himself and is ready to be controlled by UBF.

Another thing I noticed is that when 2nd gens have a problem, the UBF leaders just ship them to Korea for "training". I wonder what kind of training they receive in Korea. I think the UBF leaders send the 2nd gens to Korea to be spanked since they cannot do it in North America. In Korea parents/teachers still have the right to spank kids when they are "rebellious". I think they are shipped back to North America when they are spanked enough.

I think the rationale is that these kids have been too "Americanized," that is, they're too individualistic, too independent, too free-thinking, too proud, and whatever else that these "missionary" parents associate with being too "American." So it's off to Korea for these kids so that they can learn to "humbly conform" again. They often mandate this trip to Korea after high school graduation. Yes, the culmination of the Korea trip for these kids is always some kind of simplistic life testimony of the kind that was written by the Hong kid.

A good portion of overseas trips seem to be about re-indoctrinating a "rebellious" person. For instance, someone I know questioned UBF's lack of success in North America a couple of years ago. They were then sent on a trip to Mongolia with "Mother Barry."

And if even Korea does not help, then they are shipped to Peter Chang in Bonn.

As someone who has been outside of UBF for 5+ years, it is so sad to read about this version of bad parenting. I, like Luke and Grace Hong, only have one son. I agree with spanking children as a form of discipline, but I don't agree with it until your child stops crying. That form of discipline is abusive. This teenager, Luke, only identity seems to an UBF-identity that is being forced on him by his parents. This is evident by him taking on the key verse of all of UBF. It is not even clear that little Luke has even accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Though this teenager gets good grades in school, it seems it is more to appease his parents to prevent any more severe spankings. He talks very little about how his parents have tried to nurture him and love him as parents. It is very evident that UBF is more important to the Hongs than than their own son, Luke. They are hoping that whatever indoctrinization (brain-washing) wasn't complete in their own household in Montreal will be made completed in Korea.

Little Luke needs to discover that only Jesus Christ and the word of God can set him free to live the life he was meant to live in Christ. The UBF child experiment has been a failed one to force their child into the UBF image. They need to discover their own identity in Christ. My son, John, is starting to learn the Biblical principles through Scripture memorization, daily Bible study and personal prayer. He knows the UBF model is wrong compared to a normal Christian ministry with sound doctrine. The UBF model of parenting does not lead children to Christ or build inner convictions of why I am a Christian and what it means. This summer I have worked with my son to try to understand we need to be insulated from the worldly, sinful culture with God's word. We need to let our light shine in this dark culture, even if we are the only voice for God. He is beginning to understand that we need to glorify God with our lives, not a ministry or a church. Leaving UBF is the first step to understanding these truths.

The UBF 2nd gen writes: "After reading my life testimony, Shepherd Daniel Lee gave me Exodus 19:6 as my life key verse. "You will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites."

The focal point of indoctrination by shepherd Daniel Lee seems to be that the 2nd gen is God's chosen people. We see that the theme of God's chosen people is repeated in the life testimony. Even the one word of the life testimony is I am God’s chosen people.

The UBF indoctrination is based on Exodus 19:6. But the idea of God's chosen people applied to the UBF 2nd gen by shepherd Daniel Lee is not what Exdosu 19:6 teaches. Shepherd Daniel Lee is just using Exodus 19:6 to indoctrinate the 2nd gen in order to make him a loyal Samuel Lee worshiper.

Shepherd Daniel Lee indoctrinated the 2nd gen to believe that to become God's chosen people means to become a loyal UBF member. So the UBF 2nd gen is being indoctrinated to think that if he doesn't become a loyal UBF member, he would be disobeying God's will for him. He thinks that not working hard for UBF ministry is a sin of easy-going and pleasure-seeking life. This is clearly a false teaching.

To become God's chosen people doesn't mean to become a loyal UBF member. To become God's chosen people doesn't mean to absolutely obey UBF leaders. To become God's chosen people doesn't mean to absolutely devote to UBF mission. To become God's chosen people doesn't mean to worship and glorify Samuel Lee. To become God's chosen people doesn't mean to inherit Samuel Lee's legacy. To become God's chosen people doesn't mean to not complain about UBF leaders' sin. To become God's chosen people doesn't mean to not conform to UBF culture.

To become God's chosen people means to become loyal to God even if one has to be disloyal to UBF. To become God's chosen people means to complain about UBF leaders' sin even if the UBF leaders are his/her parents. To become God's chosen people means to abandon Samuel Lee's wrong legacy instead of glorifying Sameuel Lee's false theology.

The poor 18 year boy is not learning how to become God's chosen people from shepherd Daneiel Lee as he believes it to be the case. He is only learning how to obey UBF system even if he feels that something is worng about it. His good grades are not helping him here. I feel so disgusted that his parents are doing this to him. They are basically sacrificing their son on the altar of UBF business. They are sacrificing their son on the altar of the glirification of Samuel Lee. But they seem to believe that they are sacrificing their son as Abraham was ready to sacrifice Isaac to obey God.
