How UBF system changes a person

how a person is changed to become committed to the glorification of Samuel Lee

There is a very interesting testimony posted on UBF website. The author of the testimony seems to be very intelligent person. I have hardly seen such a well organized testimony during my entire stay in UBF. The testimony articulates very well how a person is changed to become a committed member of UBF. It describes very vividly what a person has to go through. The author examines almost every detail of emotional, psychological, intellectual and theological processes of how a person is changed into a committed UBF member. I think all committed UBF members went through the same process that is described in this testimony even though most of them cannot articulate as clearly as the author of the testimony. I think this testimony is a textbook of what UBF system does to turn a person into a devotee of Samuel Lee so that the person commits his/her life to protect the power structure set up to glorify Samuel Lee.

There are the obvious signs of her being led down the path of UBF's "cursed woman's desire-true husband-marriage by faith" false teaching. There's also this very disturbing notion that her relationship, her being in love in her early 20s, was just "a chemical reaction in the brain." Is this what they teach now about "human love" in UBF to enforce the (functional) marriage by faith program? What a perversion. Why do we have the "Song of Songs" in the Bible?

But my biggest objection is the reward- and merit-centeredness of the whole thing, which is not a surprise in the UBF environment in which grace (free gift, not reward) is a word but a foreign concept. The recognition and appreciation of grace is the key to salvation, happiness and freedom as a Christian. We sacrifice and give things up because we are led to or commanded to by God, but what God wants us to have is a free gift, not a reward that we can earn with sacrifices. UBF doesn't get it.
