A common defense given by UBF leaders is that UBF is a good church, and there are only one or two disgruntled former members. The reality is that there have been four major exoduses of members since UBF was founded in 1961. The movements to reform, change, and improve UBF have been widespread, lead by Koreans, Americans, Germans, and recruits from many nations. The public websites are numerous, exposing well over 150 people’s testimonies about all kinds of abuses. Dozens of news media reports and religious watchdog organizations have documented the unaddressed problems at UBF for decades, in many countries including America, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Germany, and Korea.
