another world class poor message... 
22nd-Oct-2005 01:19 pm
This is an excerpt from the latest message from Ubf. It shows the lack of basic biblical hemeneutics in its author.

John’s main task was preaching. His message contents were: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” The word “repent” comes from the Greek word “metanoeo” which means to change one’s mind. This is not merely changing a preference, like changing the TV channel from sports to news, or changing hair color from brunette to blonde. This change of mind has to do with one’s attitude toward sin and toward God. To repent is to stop liking and tolerating sin, and to start hating and renouncing sin. To repent is to stop avoiding God, and to start acknowledging God. Thus defined, it may happen in different ways.

The prodigal son (Lk 15) repented. He thought he would be happy with his father’s money and unlimited freedom. Instead, he experienced shameful failure and loss. Then, while working on a pig farm, he became so hungry that he envied pigs because they had pods. Hunger helped him realize that he was a fool, and his father was wise and good. So he went back to his father. His repentance started with his hungry stomach. For many, repentance follows tragic failure or severe hardship...

Here is another interesting passage from the same sermon:

Dr. John Jun performed 1,022 marriage ceremonies, and then he stopped counting. Once, he introduced a woman missionary to a man of God. But she did not like him, saying his nose was crooked. So Dr. Jun brought a ruler, measured his nose, and proved that it was straight and in the exact center of his face. After realizing this, she changed her mind and they married. Dr. John Jun has had a great career in matchmaking. Perhaps he could be called John the Matchmaker. In the same way, John was known as John the Baptist.

Didn't Brian Karcher proclaim on his web site that there are no arranged marriages in UBF and didn't somebody from Toledo proclaim the same in TV? How does this go in line with the above passage?

Ubf Bible study is not passage-based and it is not even inductive bible study as it is claimed publicly. Samuel lee's messag was never inductive or passage-based. It was all based on his personal philosophy which was heavily influenced by Nitche. Just carefully investigate his messages. Then it will become clear. I don't think Samuel lee ever understood what it meant by inductive Bible study and neither do other ubf messengers because they are forced explicitly/implicitly to copy Samuel lee's world class poor messages by the korean elders and the lee family.

John the Matchmaker? How about Sun Myung Moon, Jr?"

Dr. John Jun performed 1,022 marriage ceremonies, and then he stopped counting.

If he's "John the Matchmaker," it's obvious that he didn't just "perform" these marriage ceremonies. He had a big hand in arranging most, if not all, of these UBF marriages, either with authority delegated to him by Sam Lee or under the approval of Sam Lee.
