Isaac Kim's letter to the Reformers

After I have read Isaac Kim's letter, I could not but ask this: Is he really a Christian who worships God or a cult maniac who whoships Samuel Lee? I am not sure if he really knows the full implication of what he is talking about. I think not. If he is one of the top leaders in UBF-USA, then his mindset might represent very well the mindset of average UBFKorean leaders. I think Joe is right when he said that no one can grow spiritually in UBF environment. Anyway I wanted to post Isaac Kim's letter in its entirety for open discussion of the mindset of UBFKorean leaders. To see his letter click on comments.

You're completely right here about the misuse of the Bible passage about King Saul. But the greatest abuse here is something different: That they compare a church leader in the time of the NT with an annointed King of Israel in the time of the OT. Jesus said clearly that all believers in him should be brothers and there should not be any hierarchy. Peter confirmed that all Christians likewise are the royal priesthood, all are annointed with the spirit. There are no special annointed Kings among the Christians. This is the greatest error that those people make who compare Lee with Mose or Saul.

And they are also self-contradictory. If they really believed such a teaching, they all should be under the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church still. They all rebelled against the Pope.

But Isaac Kim does not mention this occasion that is recorded in the Bible. His bible study is not truthful. His bible study is political. So we can say that UBF Korean leaders are not truthful with their bible study. They do political Bible study to protect their power hierarchy for the glorification of Samuel Lee.

The ironical thing is that Kaleb Hong (now the UBF Europe leader, who showed a similar behavior during the reform movement) taught us that the reform leaders were "political" people. He defined "political" as having your own opinion, as trying to change a wrong system, and "unpolitical" as simply obeying and not caring whether things are ok, but simply trusting the leadership (simply trust, simply obey). He proposed this kind of unpolitical behavior as spiritual, and trying to change or criticize things as political.
