Business Mission 
2nd-Sep-2007 11:13 pm
UBF (more and more under the influence of Peter Chang) is currently making the shift from "manger ministry" to "business mission." There is a revealing testimony of John Park jr. on the UBF website. John is the son of the New Jersey leader, who together with the Bonn UBF leader Peter Chang, is trying to make UBF more like the Moonies by engaging in various businesses and companies, e.g. investing in and reselling Ximeta products. John Park sr. sent his son to Peter Chang in order to teach him obedience and "business mission" vision. Peter Chang's own son, Petrus Chang, is already in that business. Quote: "Dr. Peter who loves me like his own son and has filled me with great visions to be a shepherd for NYU students and even a CEO for business mission, ..."

This whole business mission thing seems to be a trend. The "Jesus People Ministry", another problematic group that once defended UBF in their magazine, now also started to teach that "It's not a sin to make a buck" (quoting from here).

To JPUSA's credit, they run a homeless shelter, after school program for inner city kids and housing for the elderly and do (at least on the surface) put an emphasis on ethics in business. But I wonder what UBF's "business mission" is funding when they have no such charity work (or even lip service paid to ethics), and all their missionaries are supposed to be "self-supporting", and any money given from UBF headquarters for buying "bible houses" here and there is actually considered a loan that has to be paid back?

After reading the young man's testimony, I suspect he may have acquired psychological problems like schizophrenia, or multiple personalities, delusions, and the like. He and his mentors are obviously not any kind of spiritual leaders. I doubt he is any kind of party animal or a chick magnet either. Don't think they are producing those out in NJ ubf land. But for the purpose of ubf, he can claim to be anything he wants. Sad.

"John Park sr. sent his son to Peter Chang in order to teach him obedience and 'business mission' vision."

Another example of great parenting in UBF. A UBF chapter leader abdicates his responsibility as a father and allows a known abuser to "take care of" his child. Absolutely sickening.

Well, Peter Chang sr. is a business partner of John Park sr. And as we know he already sent one woman missionary to Peter Chang, as bride for Chang jr.

Reports say that Park also sent 2 female Korean members of his chapter to Korea this summer for the usual arranged marriages. Also, fliers advertising Ximeta products can be seen taped to walls of the New Jersey UBF house.

Peter Chang's attempts to do "business mission" with a "manger minstry" somehow reminds me of Deng Xiaoping's idea of "perfecting communism through capitalism."
