UBF=God

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
etc.

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.

Good observation. He created a progression by writing that when he obeyed only reluctantly, he was only blessed a little (3 new sheep), but when he obeyed "from his heart", he was blessed more (5 new sheep).

The problem is here not only that Mr. Lee's advice was unbiblical/unethical. It would be even a problem if the advice would have been a good one, because it teaches that the blessing did not happen because he obeyed God or God's Word or the Holy Spirit, but because he obeyed the advice of Mr. Lee.
