Hitler's vision in UBF 
26th-Mar-2009 03:21 am
Dr. Ben Toh said in his message that Hitler was a man of vision. Dr. Ben Toh also said that Dr. King was a man of vision.

"Even a lunatic like Hitler, when he had a vision of a superior German race, was able to shake the world for a brief time."

So according to Dr. Ben Toh, both Dr. King and Hitler were men of vision. I am having a great difficulty in reconciling Dr. King and Hitler on the ground of 'vision'. What is more confusing is that Dr. Ben Toh preaches this notion of 'vision' based on Proverbs 29:18a which says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish…” (KJV). How can one say that Hitler was a man of vision, the vision described in Proverbs 29:18a? I want to say that Hitler's vision was a "toxic" vision. But then based on Dr. Ben Toh's world class message, even a "toxic" vision has a merit that can inspire a lunatic to shake the world for a brief time.

Clearly, Dr. Ben Toh is confused about the merits inherent in God's vision and the derivatized merits of the ideologically and institutionally conditioned vision such as UBF's vision built on Dr. Samuel Lee's wonderful spiritual legacy.

Don't forget Jim Jones' Socialist vision for America. He started out as an effective inner-city minister. He tried to use Christianity,at first, to instill this vision in his followers- we all know how that ended up. He was more successful at ingratiating himself with all the local politicians (with the use of his followers)so that when concerned relatives and ex-members went to there local and state representatives, with allegations of abuse, they looked the other way. It seems like UBF leaders are well on there way to doing this now, as they have already done with Dr. Armstrong, Ruth Tucker and the NEA. In the past, when "international delegates" had visa problems, they would send letters and make calls to Sen. Dick Durban's office, petitioning his help. (I think they were successful most of the time in doing this.)
