Opinion on Dr. Joseph Schafer's testimony 
14th-Oct-2006 03:12 pm
As I talked about it in this post, Dr. Joseph Schafer makes some ridiculous claims about topical Bible study. He says the following in his testimony:

“The vast majority of preachers today use topical Bible study, bringing together passages from here and there to make a point. This method is popular, but it suffers from a severe drawback: the one preparing the message already has a preconceived idea of what the main point must be, so he rarely learns much beyond what he already knows. This method does not challenge one to deeply examine his own personal and cultural prejudices to see if they agree with the revealed truth in God’s word.”

Shafer praises Sam Lee as someone who "spoke his mind" and "spoke the truth" without fear. What a whitewash, displaying the characteristic UBF ignorance of scripture where it suits them, something they accuse "topical" teachers of doing. (*) Jesus said that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. Samples of what was in Sam Lee's heart can be seen here and here. This is not a man who spoke the truth. This is a man who poured forth as much garbage as he wanted from his lips, with much malice and little love, because no one stopped him. I endured that for years.

An archived thread reveals more of the overflow of Sam Lee's heart. Ironically, that was Sam Lee insulting Shafer's former "sheep" in a Sunday "sermon." Where did Sam Lee get the material, the dirt that he tried to throw over Holly Lord in that "sermon?" He got it from Joe Shafer, of course.

(*) My own mother, at the first UBF "Founder's Day" 3 years ago, declared in a praiseology that "Dr. Samuel Lee was a man of truth." One wonders what these people's notion of truth is.
