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.

"Second, the matter of romance and marriage is intimately related to what UBF strives for. UBF trainings are aimed at raising up disciples of Jesus who could give up anything without hesitation to serve the LORD and his mission."

This statement illustrates one of my main problems with UBF teaching. God did not ask us to be willing to give up anything without hesitation. There are things we must hold on to in order to serve God, such as godly commitments to family, job, and other obligations in our daily lives. To remain faithful and committed to what the Lord has given us is often what is asked of us. In fact, I would guess most people are probably not asked to live a nomad's life for God's sake, but to stay where they are and remain faithful.

I like what my new pastor says: If God wants to keep you home changing dirty diapers instead of going on the mission field, you be the best dirty-diaper changer you can be. What is important is to do God's will for you, not to be on the cutting edge of what God is doing in the world. UBF lacks a sense of being able to serve God in everyday life without performing a great and very visible "mission". Big problem.
