Romantic feeling in UBF 
11th-Aug-2006 01:14 pm
I have translated some discussions appeared on the Korean UBF website. They are about romantic feeling and UBF-style marriage by faith. The first one was posted on July 29th, 2006 by a person who used name ‘sheep’. It is post 1368 on the website (http://php.ubf.or.kr/bbs/view.php3?id=2658&code=counsel&start=0).
The second was posted on 2006/07/29 (July 29th, 2006) by a person who used name ‘a shepherd’. It is post 1369 on the website (http://php.ubf.or.kr/bbs/view.php3?id=2659&code=counsel&start=0).
The third one was posted on 2006/08/04 (August 4th, 2006) by 이스페너(Spanner Lee?) who is a UBF staff shepherd. This post is numbered 1372 on the website (http://php.ubf.or.kr/bbs/view.php3?id=2680&code=counsel&start=0). While I was translating them, I could clearly see the problems in UBF and misery and suffering that UBF members go through. I decided to post them here so that everyone can see how much suffering the UBF men-made system inflicts on campus students.

모든분들이 연애감정이 죄가 아니라는 것에 동의하고 계실줄 생각합니다.
하지만 목자님들의 답변을 보면 무슨말씀을 하고 싶으신건지 잘 모르겠습니다.
그것이 죄는 아니지만 단순히 센터역사를 위해서 지금 분위기를 지속시켜야
한다는 말씀 이신건지 아니면 스스로 자성을 해서 바꿔나가야 한다는 것인지

전 이것에 관해서 가장큰 문제는 자매들의 정죄감이라고 생각합니다.
센터안에서 형제를 대할 때 부자유 하면서 눈도 마주치지 않는 학부생들을
보면서 마음이 아팠습니다. 그리고 연애감정을 해결하지 못한 자신을
자책하는 소감을 들으면서 이건 아니라는 생각을 하게 되었습니다.

스스로 느끼고 하나님의 사랑을 통해서 그 사랑이 문제되지 않는 방법에
접근해가야 할것이지 율법적인 통제 분위기 안에서 그것은 전혀 해결되지 않고
오히려 감추고 싶어하는 모습으로 병들가능성이 있다고 생각합니다.

어떻게 생각하십니까?

I believe that everyone would agree that romantic feeling is not sin. But whenever I read our shepherds’ responses to a question regarding this matter, I do not understand what they are talking about. Are they saying that we should just accept the current tradition of marriage by faith for the sake of UBF ministry even though romantic feeling is not sin? Or are they saying that we should change our unbiblical tradition of marriage by faith and make it more biblical?

Personally, the most serious problem about how we view romantic feeling in UBF is being judgmental toward sister members. I feel so sorry for those sisters who say that they become very uncomfortable when they meet brothers in their chapters. They don’t even try to look at them. Whenever I hear a testimony in which a sister repents her sin of romantic feeling toward a brother, I always think that there is something wrong about this whole thing.

Maybe we should take a different approach to this problem. Maybe we should help them with the love of God so that their romantic feeling does not lead to sin. If we continue in the present legalistic and controlling environment, they would just try to hide their romantic feeling in their hearts and they will become more spiritually sick because of that.

What do you think about it?
