The ethics of a UBF leader...

The last three pictures truly illustrate the UBF leaders. Whatever they do is justified, but when we did the same thing, we were rebuked.

The following is from the official website of the Korean UBF headquarters:

일용할양식부에서 알려드립니다.
2007년 봄호(3월 이후)부터 홈페이지를 통한 일용할양식 서비스를 잠정적으로 중단합니다.
그러나 일용할 양식 책자를 통해서 계속 양식을 접하실 수 있습니다.
최근들어 인터넷을 통해서 일용할 양식을 드시고 양식책 구입이 이루어지지 않아 어려움이 있습니다.
유료화 등 개선된 서비스 제공을 위해서 기도해 주시기 바랍니다.
불편을 드려서 죄송합니다.

This is an announcement from UBF Daily Bread team. It has been decided to temporarily shut down the Internet Daily Bread service beginning in March 2007. But the Daily Bread books will be continually published. Recently many people prefer using the Internet Daily Bread service (*translator's note: the internet service may have been free.). This has resulted in decline in the purchase of the Daily Bread books and we are experiencing some difficulities. We are planing to offer fee-based Internet Daily Bread service. Please pray for us. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Here is one free Internet Daily Devotional.

If you have favorite free internet daily devotional, please list it here so we could help poor sheep in UBF.

You can read the "original" Daily Bread from ScriptureUnion for free here: http://www.dailybread.org.uk (only the offline and book versions cost something, but probably less than the UBF version). This is the devotional that was originally used in UBF, but then Sarah Barry wrote her own version in order to get the UBF Bible twists in. The one-page "user guide" with those little pictographs was also copied from ScriptureUnion.

Good illustration of how UBF teachings are a cross between Jesus and Machiavelli. Of course, they repackage it as "By any means faith". They use the example of the four men who lowered the paralytic down through a hole in the roof to get to Jesus to justify this. "Bring them to Jesus [UBF] by any means."

I still remember my UBF bible study about that passage when I was a UBF sheep. The Korean missionary repeatedly emphasized the word "irgendwie" (German for "by all means") as the main lesson of that passage, and she did not forget that "irgendwie" also justified demolishing the roof of the house. From this they conclude that UBFers can do anything, including illegal things, if it serves UBF (= God's work).
