It's easy to "serve" when you're getting praise

I find it curious that in our testimonies, we were never able to mention the work of others in our lives unless they were UBF members.

A typical example I will never forget is the first public testimony by a young man who was "my sheep" at that time. He wrote a candid and thoughtful testimony in which he spoke out his respect of the deaconesses in the hospital where he was working at that time, and how he learned from their faith and labor. Before he was allowed to share his testimony, our chapter leader Kaleb Hong called him into his room at the conference place (he always reserved his own room there for such purposes) where he told him to share the testimony first in front of him only. Then Kaleb told him to remove the passage about the deaconesses, and to stress UBF and Bible study instead. One or two years later, that young man left UBF. I was very sad at that time, but now I know it was good. One of the reasons he told me was this event which he remembered very well. He said he did not leave because of me, but because of Kaleb and because he felt UBF was manipulating him and he couldn't trust the leadership. Today he is working very succesfully as a medical doctor abroad. I'm so happy he saw the warning signs. I needed much longer than him to recognize he was right in his judgement about UBF.

UBF leaders do not remove non-biblical elements but non-UBF elements from testimonies when they revise them. They remove all non-UBF stuff and fill in all UBF stuff instead. And they let their sheep share their testimonies in public. I would call this brainwashing and the ultimate result is "non-UBF=non-biblical". Writing testimony and sharing revised testimony in public are essential trainings in UBF to make anyone remain committed to UBF under the control of UBF leaders.
