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...

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.
