Life of a 2nd gen in UBF 
14th-Aug-2006 11:22 pm
There is a life testimony of a UBF 2nd gen posted on Chicago UBF website. It shows very realistically about the life of a UBF 2nd gen. One can see how a UBF 2nd gen's life is controlled and being "pushed" by using the Bible. The 2nd gen writes very honestly about his misery and struggle to live under the UBF culture where condemnation prevails.

He also mentions the difficulty to live with UBF Korean parents who are UBF missionaries. You will see that UBF Korean missionaries apply their Korean-style parenting to "discipling" their sheep and UBF-style discipling to their parenting. One will conclude after reading the life testimony that the whole UBF paradigm of serving God's work should be dismantled since it is only based on Korean culture but never on the Bible.

Nobody seems to understand this poor 2nd gen. His parents are just trying to mold their son into a loyal UBF member. And everyone in UBF is collaborating to achieve this goal. I think that they are trying to suffocate him. They must teach him the truth and freedom in the Gosepel of Jesus. Otherwise, they will only make his heart hard toward God. They might succeed in making him a loyal UBF member. But they will never succeed in making him a true child of God. I think that his parents have more problem than he does. The best way to solve the problem is to for the parent to leave UBF with their son. I did and it is working.

Another thing I noticed is that when 2nd gens have a problem, the UBF leaders just ship them to Korea for "training".

I think the rationale is that these kids have been too "Americanized," that is, they're too individualistic, too independent, too free-thinking, too proud, and whatever else that these "missionary" parents associate with being too "American." So it's off to Korea for these kids so that they can learn to "humbly conform" again. They often mandate this trip to Korea after high school graduation. Yes, the culmination of the Korea trip for these kids is always some kind of simplistic life testimony of the kind that was written by the Hong kid.

A good portion of overseas trips seem to be about re-indoctrinating a "rebellious" person. For instance, someone I know questioned UBF's lack of success in North America a couple of years ago. They were then sent on a trip to Mongolia with "Mother Barry."

And if even Korea does not help, then they are shipped to Peter Chang in Bonn.
