This is a reposting of a private discussion thread with some confidential information removed for public view which shows the psychological effects of involvement in UBF. (see comments) See also article on Pyschological Consequences of Cultic Involvement:

"I have noticed there have been a number of suicides over the years in UBF. I just recently looked at Joe's Blog and read about a 2nd gen who committed suicide and the horrible way in which Sam Lee addressed it in a message, which is shamefully typical. The stories about Sarah Regina floating around in UBF were/are not any better. What troubled me even more was the lies, cover-ups and denials of the truth...

Are there any statistics of the number of suicides or attempted suicides in UBF? I think there may be more that we do not even know about." (See results below)

Suicides:
Korea: 1
USA: 6; plus 1 attempted and 4 severely depressed/suicidal
Germany: 4, plus 1 attempted

Nervous Breakdowns: estimated hundreds

God's Faithfulness Endures Forever

"..but for the grace and faithfulness of God, I would not be here today."

I want to expand on this point. Because of God's grace to me when he first saved me (one year prior to coming to UBF), He was faithful to his promise to never leave me or forsake me. Jesus said "I will not lose any whom the Father has given me. No one can snatch them out of my hand" and also "Nothing can separate us from the love of God." Despite what I had been through in UBF and how it affected my faith, He did not leave me. Even despair and unbelief did not separate me from Him. He restored me and reminded me of the Scripture He had given me when He first saved me and filled me with His Spirit, Phil. 1:6 "Being confident of this, He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
