Korean nationalism 
13th-Sep-2006 09:57 am
There is a very good article that talks about Korean nationalism that can be easily discovered among UBF Korean missionaries.

Exerpt from the article:

"Currently, boundaries between the nation-state are rapidly deteriorating, and yet we still tend to be nationalistic and even chauvinistic. For example, in elementary schools, our children are being taught that Koreans are amazingly smart and uniquely homogeneous people and that Korea is one of the most beautiful countries on earth. These teachings are just wrong. Why not teach them to be proud of their country as it is, even though it's a small mountainous country with scarce natural resources? Why not teach them there are other peoples on earth who have different cultures and that we should peacefully coexist with them?"

In UBF students are taught that UBF is amazingly spiritual and UBF marriage by faith is the most beautiful tradition thanks to the most excellent servant of God, Dr. Samuel Lee. Many of UBF practices are based on Korean tradition rather than on sound biblical teaching.
