The truth and Anamgol UBF 
17th-Jul-2006 11:49 pm
I found a Sunday message on the website of Anamgol UBF which is considered most elite UBF chapter in the UBF world. Anamgol UBF focuses on recruiting students in Korea University, one of the top five universities in Korea. Mark Yang used to be the director. I don’t know who the current director is and who wrote the message. I wanted to discuss problems of this message because it is based on John 8:31-32 and they happen to be my favorite key verses in the Bible. I want to discuss them in the comment section with the following topics:

I. Some comments on my English translation
II. Issues related to the author’s presentation of Kant and Critique of Pure Reason
III. Issues on the author’s interpretation of ‘truth’ in John 8:32
IV. Concluding remarks

Another interesting UBF twist on the word "truth" was how Mark Yang tried to explain to one UBF member that "worship in spirit and truth" means that we should wear your best clothes (which in turn always means suit and tie in UBF) for the Sunday worship service. Just the opposite from what the verse really wants to say.

So Mark Yang's understanding of "worship in spirit and truth" is "worship in suit and tie"?? Where do they get all these weird ideas? I think they all come from UBF subjectivity.

It is a typical example how they redefine words so that the Bible looses its meaning or means something different. Jesus wanted to explain that outwardness and formality has not much meaning, but the inner attitude and your love for the truth is important. But UBF's interpretation is the opposite, that outward things such as clothing is important.

It's completely illogical. Both of their claims, namely 1) clothing matters and 2) suit+tie is the best clothing. Can you imagine Jesus wearing suit+tie? Or Peter? Or John the Baptist? UBF is so silly.
