UBF's new three-year-plan

Did anybody read John Juns short message "To double the work of God by 2010"?

The message is very obscure.

* How can anybody "double the work of God"? Only God can double the work of God.
* It is not clear what the verse and the message has to do with the idea of doubling the work of God.
* How do they measure "double"? Double the prayer? Double the invitations? Double the membership?
* Who invented that "prayer topic"? (He says only "We have a clear prayer topic..." as if everybody already agreed)
* Why not triple the work of God? Who sets up such numbers?
* The wording reminds me a bit of a Stalin three-year-plan
* Reminds me also of 2Mo 5:18

Anyway, it seems UBF leadership is currently very determined to increase their business, after the big exodus in 2000 and following stagnation.

Did you mean Exodus 5:18? I think in the German, it's called the 2nd Book of Moses.

Yes, 1Mo-5Mo = 1Mose-5Mose = Gen-Deu. I always forget that this name is used only in Germany (goes back to Luther). In Hebrew, by the way, the books are named after the first word in the book.

The problem is that Jun (Pharao) demands of them to double the work, without providing them with anything different that would enable them to do that. Maybe his reasoning is similar to that of the Pharao (Ex 5:9): "Let the labor be heavier on the men, and let them work at it so that they will pay no attention to false words." If they are kept busy, they have no time to read infos about UBF and think about leaving Egypt UBF.
