A wedding in Heidelberg

We know about the case of the current European UBF head honcho Peter Chang marrying his 18 year old son to a woman 6-7 years his senior from a New Jersey UBF chapter some years ago. Now, from a February 2009 europeubf.org report (that has subsequently been removed), comes another case:


"On Feb. 5th, 2009, M. [name of second generation UBF member redacted] of Heidelberg UBF (the first son of M. Kaleb & Sarah Hong) married Sh. Jung Min Kim of YonHee center...

...

When Sh. David Kim of YonHee center wanted to introduce a girl to [redacted name], he sent Sh. Jung Min Kim’s small picture and life testimony. M. Kaleb asked his son, 'Do you want to make a decision about your marriage after looking at a girl’s picture, or can you decide by faith without looking at them?' Then he suggested, 'If you have to decide by looking at pictures, let’s just send this back.' At that time, M. [redacted name] answered, 'I will decide it by faith without reading the testimony, nor looking at pictures.' When he decided by faith, he realized that God gave him the best co-worker – the most beautiful and artistic woman of faith with a compassionate shepherd heart..."


Uh, yeah. Sounds like bad craziness to me, whether from a Christian or secular perspective. While UBF is holding an extravagant conference in Europe and playing the public relations game to the hilt to try to convince mainline churches that they are "normal," we know what their actual practices are and what they try to push on their second generation and student recruits.

I had made a comment on this since I personally know the bridegroom and was bewildered by this report about his marriage. After noticing this comment, he told me Sarah Kim's report was not completely true. So I removed my original comment.

Anyway this example still reveals how the leaders think marriage should happen. It's now also another example showing how reports of UBF leaders do not tell the real stories.
