UBF experience trumps all other Christian churches 
16th-Jun-2006 11:22 am
I recently found out that I have been a Christian quite a bit longer than my UBF "shepherd" had. Yet he was there to tell me what God's will for my life was. I guess the only was UBF could justify this as being appropriate is to say that I needed to be educated under UBF's way of doing things - since they don't recognize the work of any other Christian churches in a believer's life. The arrogance of this attitude is amazing. I think we could compare UBF to an arm that took a knife and cut itself off from the body of Christ. UBF is just a disembodied, dead arm laying on the ground next to the body.

When I was in UBF, I was trained to think that all Christians in Western countries were "old Christian" or "cultural Christians" which I think meant that all Western Christians were habitual Christians without deep persoanl relationship with Jesus and without deep understanding of the Gospel of Jesus. My experience with an American church and its congregation is that they are not as much political or manipulative as UBFKoreans.

UBFKoreans also think that all bible studies in Western countries are "weak" with no "divine" discipline. UBFKoreans think that a bible teacher should actively "challange" and "rebuke" their bible study students which is believed to be the sign of "strong" bible study by them. But the problem here is that the idea of "strong" bible study could be very subjective matter. Just consider the case where a bible teacher has to "rebuke" one of his students. How far the bible teacher shoudl go to "rebuke" him? As far as to rebuke him to divorce his wife? As far as to violate his human rights? Well, if he goes that far, anyone will say that his "strong" bible study has turned into a spiritual abuse.
