Strange things going on in UBF 
31st-Jan-2008 08:51 pm
Strange things are going on in the UBF world. In the last European directors conference, Peter Chang, Paul Hong and some others have been ordinated as "pastors" by UBF under the name of some obscure Korean Presbyterian Assembly (probably to give the whole thing some semblance of legitimacy). It's becoming more and more clear that Peter Chang will succeed Samuel Lee. And yes, he is a real worthy successor of that evil man. Please have a look at the pictures from the event, you must have seen this.

Please also read the UBF report about this event. It mentions a boat party, John Jun’s wedding anniversary, but it does not mention the anointing of 4 UBF leaders as pastors by an obscure "Presbyterian assembly" with one word even, though it happened on the very same place on the very same occasion! Wouldn't you expect that this should be mentioned? Also, hasn't Ron Ward always been called a pastor before, even in this report? So is he now a "pastor pastor"?

You'll also find the sentence phrase: "In his message, Dr. Chang talked about Martin Luther’s shepherd heart." Funny how they mention Chang's Dr. title, but do not mention the Dr. title of Martin Luther (though Luther held one in theology, and as we know was a real scholar, while Chang has only one in pharmacy). It's such a shame that Chang dares to even speak out the name of Luther, the great reformer.

So these four (a guy in a business school, a chemical engineer, a lawyer and a soulless yes-man to Samuel Lee) had to go all the way to Europe to get "ordained" as "pastors" by a Korean Presbyterian assembly. And when they go back home, they'll demand to be called "Pastor".

I thought this did not happen in Europe, but in Absurdistan. There are so many things strange and wrong here that you don't even know where to start listing them. If you look at the pictures, those who prayed and laid their hands on the "pastors" were only UBFers, and all of this happened as part of the UBF directors conference. At least two of them were called pastors in UBF for many years already. And Peter Chang acted as chapter leader already for many years, too, why does he now suddenly need to be a pastor? His qualification hasn't changed either. In the last years he was mainly occupied with "business mission", not with theological studies or anything. Everything is so wrong about UBF on every scale. I think somebody has called this "fractal wrongness." I also see some parallels in the constant self-celebration of UBF Korean leaders and the other "famous" Korean cult leader (here).

camouflage and validate a cult that's all
if you think about it, internally there is an order to begin to baptize.
now after a few years of your post is clearly trying to disguise criticism.
at present are leading conference dealing with these points.
