The "UBF=God" equation is really at the heart of the whole UBF calamity.
It stands short for the following beliefs:
UBF is "God's ministry"
UBF leaders are "servants of God"
UBF leaders convey the will of God to you
UBF leaders' commands to you are God's commands to you
UBF leaders' orientation is God's orientation for your life
You need to obey UBF leaders as you would obey God
Training by UBF leaders is training by God
What is "faith" in UBF? Actually it is faith in "UBF=God."
I think this problem deserves its own thread.
In the comment section I will explain more.
