UBF Ten Commandments 
8th-Dec-2006 10:43 am
The following is an excerpt from Anamgol UBF Sunday message on Ten Commandments. Anamgol UBF is considered the most exemplary UBF chapter in the world. The message is about the last half of the Ten Commandments. The fifth command is about honoring one's parents. But the Anamgol message twists the meaning of the very important commandment and says that one should respect his one-to-one shepherd as a God's messenger and as someone("대리자") who is equal to God in representing him in this world. The Anamgol message emphasizes that one will be blessed by God and grow greatly in his faith when he respects his one-to-one shepherd as such.

"...부모 공경의 계명은 조금 더 나아가보면 모든 위계질서에 대한 존중으로 연결됩니다. 우리는 웃어른들을 잘 섬기고 존경을 표해주어야합니다. 지도자들, 학교의 선생님, 직장 상사들 모두가 우리가 존경해야합니다. 만일 이들이 불의를 행하면 그것에 대해 우리는 경계하지만 그들이 있는 그 위치로 인하여 존경해 주어야합니다. 우리는 목자님들을 존경해야합니다. 자기의 일대일 목자님을 존경해하고 그 말씀 한마디 한마디를 귀담아 들어가면서 배우고 성장해야합니다. 일대일 목자님은 나를 위한 하나님의 대리자요 메신저로 알고 존경해야합니다. 우리는 우리의 목자님들을 영적 아버지 어머니로 귀하게 여기고 감사해야합니다. 목자님들이 우리 한사람을 위해 얼마나 마음 졸이며 또 마음 썩어가면서 기도하고 자기의 시간과 물질을 드려가면서, 심지어 자기 자녀를 뒤로 두고 와서 섬기는 줄 조금이라도 생가해보시기 바랍니다. 그런데 이런 것은 생각도 않고 목자님들의 희생과 섬김을 무시하고 함부로 대하면 하나님이 그 사람의 인생을 축복해주실 수 없습니다. 하나님은 살아계신 하나님 이십니다. 다 보고 듣고 계십니다. 우리가 이를 알고 행한다면 하나님은 그 사람을 축복하시고 큰 믿음의 진보가 있게 하실 것입니다..."

The Anamgol messenger claims that 부모 공경의 계명은 조금 더 나아가보면 모든 위계질서에 대한 존중으로 연결됩니다 (The command to honor parents can be extended to respect all existing hierarchical order.)"

I consider this kind of extending the meaning of the Bible the most serious problem in UBF theology. UBF theology never seems to give clear justification for its theological reasoning. For example, the fifth commandment says, "Honor your father and mother." But no where in the Ten Commandments one can find "Respect all existing hierarchical order." So one should naturally raise a question: Given Ten Commandments, how can I go from "Honor your father and mother" to "Respect all existing hierarchical order"? Obviously one wants to do it based on sound theological reasoning. Otherwise it would end up being a boolsheet. I claim that the Anamgol messenger is boolsheetting with authority here.

The whole UBF theology is nothing but boolsheetting with authority. Why? Because you cannot raise any question against any theological arguement given by your one-to-one shepherd or by Dr. Samuel Lee or Dr. John Jun. As Dr. Schafer testifies in this message, "In our typical UBF message style, we try to be very convincing and make absolute statements. With a loud voice, we say, 'Jesus is the way!'" All you hear from a typical UBF messenger is just a loud voice that sounds very convincing. But no UBF one-to-one shepherds are trained with basic theological reasoning of going from A to B or from A to C.

A: "Honor your father and mother."
B: "Respect all existing hierarchical order."
C: "Respect your one-to-one shepherd as someone who is equal to God."

The Anamgol messenger claims that he can go to B from A because A is in Ten Commandments. So he finally concludes that one must do C since A is in Ten Commandments. But he never seems to think more deeply why he can do that. If his sheep asks him "Why so?", he can call his sheep a humanistic rebel or Satan. If he really wants to keep his sheep in his chapter, he would tell him, "Just obey even though you don't understand. Then God will bless your obedience." This is basically how the UBF system works. This is basically the reason why UBF hurts sheep and why UBF was divided into two.
