UBF discussions in Russian language

It seems people start to discuss UBF in Russian, too. Is was made aware of a thread at jesuschrist.ru, where somebody wonders why UBF is considered like a normal church when UBF members made UBF propaganda on that forum, and nobody complained about UBF being a cult. From that, a whole discussion thread started, with some ex UBF members and some current members jumping in to defend UBF. I noticed the same patterns we know so well from our old forum. When the ex member pointed out the problems, he was attacked personally. When the ex member asked concrete questions, they were not answered. When he pointed out several concrete events which showed that UBF is a cult, they told him he only remembers the bad things and is not thankful for the good things he experienced. If anybody is interested, I can translate some passages.

This reminds me of my friend who is a Mormon. She told me lots of stories about changed lives - people who left drug abuse or became faithful to their wives because of the influence of the Mormon church. And I'm sure her stories are true. But every Christian still knows it would be crazy to accept, support, or be part of the Mormon church just because of those things. I think it is hard to find an organization that ONLY does evil. Is that how we should judge something? God wants us to be more shrewd and discerning than that.
