UBF and 'special' mission 
11th-Jun-2006 10:02 pm
The following counseling was featured on the open counseling section of the Korean UBF homepage. One sheep was having trouble with whether or not he/she should continue to say in UBF. The sheep wanted to know if he/she should join other local church and serve God there. The shepherd who wrote the following counseling said that UBF mission is ‘special’ and only small number of those who come to UBF can continue to live with this ‘special’ mission. Special mission? I heard a lot about this ‘special mission’ in UBF too. What is so ‘special’ about UBF mission? I think this ‘special mission’ is nothing but another UBF business-oriented invention that has nothing to do with biblical truth.


“그전에 많은 양들을 쏘잉하고 초청하지만, 결코 특별한 사명을 감당할
만한 리더로 키워지는건 소수에 불과합니다. 이것이 우리 모임의 특징
입니다. 그리고 그 길을 포기할수 밖에없는 사람들은 믿음의 길을 저버
린 것이라는 생각과 또한 알수 없는 정죄감으로 살아가게 되죠..
사명을 버렸다는 말로도 표현되기도 하구요…”

“Even though we recruit many sheep, only small portion of them are raised to become leaders who can continue to carry out special mission. This is a special feature our church. Those who give up this way of life live under the self-condemnation thinking that they have given up life of faith. Some people also say that giving up this way of life is deserting mission…”

I don't know whether the original Korean makes more sense...

Recall the format of all UBF messages. Usually they are based on some portion of Bible passge of about 20 verses. UBF messages are about 6 pages long. These 6 pages are mostly used to describe and explain the passage. So everyone will think that UBF messages are based on the Bible and strictly follow the Bible passage. But most people who listen to UBF message do not understand that the key point of these UBF messages that is contradictory to the teachings of the Bible passage is burried somewhere in the 6 pages.

UBF message is like Babelfish translation of Korean into English, which does not make any sense. The Babelfish translation is exactly like UBF messages and UBF counseling. They talk a lot about the Bible. But the key point of their bible teaching and counseling is that UBF is 'special' or 'it is ok to violate human rights'. It is very hard to spot their key point in their messages and counseling because it is burried somewhere in the long boring messages or long counseling or repeated training.

The UBF shepherd who was helping the sheep wrote a long counseling in which he writes about many other issues different from the origianl issue. But the key point of his counseling is that UBF is 'special' and the sheep in doubt of UBF 'special' mission is unworthy of it. So this key point of the UBF counseling is already condemning the conscience of the innocent sheep.

The messages of Kaleb Hong in Heidelberg were *always* 6 pages long, every week. I guess it has set up as a standard by Samuel Lee. Kaleb Hong always tried to follow such standards. We also had to aim at 120 members, another magic number set up by Samuel Lee.
