I just read one of the funniest articles which is titled "Introduction to UBF Publication Ministry Partnership". One of the reasons I visit UBF website from time to time is that I get entertained by some good jokes posted on the UBF site.

I don't know who wrote that introduction but I felt like I was reading a script for a comedy movie. Two words stood out from the introduction: Specific and Quality. How do you measure quality if your ministry is so specific? For example, if a sheep asks why he need to follow UBF marriage by faith, his shepherd only has to say "because unlike other ministries, our ministry is very specific or unique" as it happens all the time in UBF.

The funniest part was when I read "the highest standard of excellence in scholarship and biblical faithfulness". Whoever wrote this, he surely seems to know how to collect nice words and put them in an orderly arrangement. But without any THINKING!!

Writing is not just collecting nice words and put them in some order. Writing requires rigorous THINKING. Before writing about "the highest standard of excellence in scholarship", one should THINK about whether "the highest standard of excellence in scholarship" could be attainable in UBF environment where there is no freedom to rigorously pursue any degree of "scholarship". As discussed previously, a clear commitment to UBF takes higher priority to anything including "scholarship" in UBF.

So what if a clear commitment to UBF contradicts the pursuit of excellence in scholarship? What if the preservation of Dr. Samuel Lee's beautiful spiritual legacy contradicts the pursuit of excellence in scholarship? What if the pursuit of excellence in scholarship leads one to leave UBF? Now we can see that even the talk of "the highest standard of excellence in scholarship" in UBF is a joke!! To achieve "the highest standard of excellence in scholarship" requires the highest degree of FREEDOM to do so.

In conclusion, the bottom line of UBF Publication Ministry has nothing to do with "the highest standard of excellence in scholarship and biblical faithfulness" but has only to do with money!!
