Abusing Bible key verse... 
19th-Nov-2006 10:45 pm
It seems that the most widely abused Bible key verse in UBF is Matthew 6:33. The key verse is about "seeking first his kindgom and his righteousness". In UBF "seeking his kindgom and his righteousness" has been established as attending Friday meeting absolutely, attending weekly fellowship meetin absolutely, attending summer bible conference absolutely, attending easter conference absolutely, participating christmass drama absolutely, having 12 one to one absolutely, writig testimony absolutely, marriage by faith, obeying one's shepherd absolutely, sending out 100,000 missionaries etc..

This kind of UBF mindset is not unique. This kind of mindset is very popular among Korean churches and other cultic organizations. The problems is that UBFers have no doubt that things may not be "seeking his kingdom and his righteousness". In their effort to promote their business, UBF leaders practically narrowed the meaning of the Bible keay verse under religious subjectivity. So when they teach "seeking first his kindgom and his righteousness", they actually teach that "serving UBF", "partcipating in UBF work", and "obeying UBF system absolutely" are the same as or more importat than "seeking first his kindgom and his righteousness".

When Dr. Samuel Lee insisted on his own unbiblical theology, he failed. His work of life time divided into two and his death was not glorious one either.

I think that Dr. Samuel Lee didn't know that he was getting old and God was preparing a new generation to replace him. This is the principle of history in God: a new generation always replaces an old generation. Under this scenario, what could be "seeking his kingdom and his righteousness"? Dr. Samuel Lee and his supporters tried to continue to protect their power and authority by telling the young generation that obeying them was "seeking his kingdom and his righteousness". But didn't John the Baptist say, "He must become greater; I must become less"?

But Dr. Samuel Lee didn't want to become less than the new generation. The problem that the current UBF has between old generation and young generation is very similar. The old generation doesn't want to become less. But the young generation doesn't want to become less either. Both of them want to become greater by "seeking his kingdom and his righteousness" in their own way while sheep suffer not knowing what to "seek".
