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.

And, though they believe Samuel Lee's interpretation is certain, they are not actually aware that it is his interpretation only. They believe that they "simply" study the Bible. They believe that they don't interpolate or extrapolate. They believe that they don't read the Bible selective. They think all other read selective and "interpret", but they only "read and obey". For rhe more intellectual among the members, Samuel Lee has made up the story that he (Lee) had invented what he called "inductive Bible study", the best method to be sure what the Bible really means. Lee officialy explains his idea as to not have any theological system and interpret the Bible in the frame of this system, but let it speak for itself. But the truth is of course completely different. As we know so well, Lee has very well set up a theological system, and the Bible is always read on the background of this system in UBF. What UBF claims and what UBF practices are often diametrically opposite, but still people are fooled by that.
