Is he really a Christian?

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.

"And didn't Paul say love always trusts?"</q Issac Kim argues that Samuel Lee should be trusted because "love always trusts." Kim's point is that if you love someone, you will trust them. Thus, if we love Samuel Lee, we should trust him. Further, if we trust him, we will not request that he make his records public. Chris and human12 have made good points about Kim's misinterpretation of scripture. I will add the point that love and trust in UBF only flows one way, from the sheep to the shepherd and from the regular member to the chapter director. The leaders always taught us that if we love God, we would love God's servants. Then, if we loved God's servants, we would trust and obey them as God servants. Further, if we trusted and obeyed God's servants, we would never question anything they said or did. The connection made is that if we loved God, we would obey God's servants without question. However, this love and trust never flowed in the other direction. UBF leaders never showed love by trusting us. Leaders did not trust that would ex-UBF members have said is true. They have never loved us enough to believe our testimonies. They have never loved or trusted us. Where was Isaac Kim's love for his former LA member, Shane, who used to post on rsqubf? Everything in UBF is centered on the one-way flow from the sheep to the shepherd that is never reciprecated. There is no concept of "we are all brothers" in UBF
