13th-Mar-2006 01:45 pm
Here is an article by a student of Korean origin that won an essay contest at Stoney Brook University in New York:

The author poses the question: Is the quality of Korean churches compatible with its quantity? I thought it was interesting and helped me understand even better some of the problems facing Korean churches.

Thanks a lot, freeinchrist, for this fair and profound article. It really explains a lot. What I started to learn is that UBF is only the tip of the iceberg. UBF is only a particularly ugly excrescence of a Korean Christianity which has already tremendous problems in itself.

I'm not saying that the German Christianity is better. It's also problematic, though in a different way. Maybe even worse. However, the difference is that the German Christianity does not *claim* to be the best and the greatest and is going to rescue the world by sending out thousands of missionaries.

Yes, I feel that I'm starting to see the bigger picture too. I'm finding a lot of articles online about these same issues in Korean Christianity. Just wanted to note also that by no means do I believe all Koreans who are Christians have these problems.
