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.

Several months ago, Dr. Lee told me to give away my non-student sheep, which meant basically all of them. My spiritual energy was being consumed by an unchanging girl sheep who finished her PhD and never simply accepted the word of God. Dr. Lee sensed my stagnant shepherd life.

This quote exemplifies another problem with equating UBF=God; members allow UBF to determine to whom we preach the gospel. Albright was tired of teaching the Bible to a woman who would not "accept the word of God."

As Christians, we would pray for the woman and allow ourselves to be used by God to preach the gospel to whomever God wants. This is often difficult. It is not always easy to preach the gospel to people different from us and/or who do not seem to care. This would require personal time with God in prayer to decide what to do. However, in UBF, members can just forget about the person who is not white and not a college student. Thus, there is no personal struggle. The Bible clearly reveals that God wanted the early Christians to be open to preaching the gospel to everyone. How did Paul react when he was told to give away his Gentile sheep? Paul proclaimed strongly that the gospel was for Jews and Gentiles. UBF members can just forget about people that God has put in their lives by rationalizing that the UBF leaders told them to "give the sheep away." God never gives up on anyone. God certainly does not want us to ignore people that he placed in our life when an opportunity to preach the gosple arises. But UBF would rather take the easy way out and just fish white sheep.
