UBF principle 
17th-Jun-2007 12:12 am
The following article reveals the UBF principle to study the Bible. If you read carefully, the UBF principle looks like a recipe for how to prepare Ramyen for brunch. It focuses more on technicality of 'how to do it'. For example, part e of section 3 reads:

e. Study how the theme or main point is developed throughout the rest of the Bible. Search for the theme in both Old and New Testaments; for example: Ge 3:15; 12:7; 13:15; 22:18; Gal 3:16

But throught the whole article, there is no mention of 'What should be considered a theme or main point?' For example, is the UBF style of marriage by faith a theme or main point developed throughout the rest of the Bible? Well, once you start to ask this question, you are considered a Satan in UBF. So how does the UBF Bible study guide help you 'study how the theme or main point is developed throughout the rest of the Bible'?

I think a good Bible study guide should be designed to help sheep ask more fundamental questions about UBF theology (or any other organizational doctrines) than to make him conform to UBF style of thinking.

UBF's strength is actually how they make people believe that they read everything out of the Bible, that they have no preconceived ideas of their own, that they don't have any "theology" or "system". That's why they stress "Bible study" so much. They want to give the impression that they objectivly get all their ideas from the Bible, and then they can push the people because that means it is the absolute will of God. Of course we know that the opposite is the case. But it is not easy to understand that when you are deeply involved in the group and hear nothing but their sogams, messages and 1:1 indoctrination.
