The ethics of a UBF leader...

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).
