UBF’s front groups compliation
UBF as a whole doesn’t have a front group but each of the chapters do.
The mystery of the beautiful exterior of UBF and my hope and vision for discipleship
Note: Although some of the images are the same as in other articles I wrote this is a different article
The original article below explains my vision for doing authentic voluntary non hierarchical discipleship and my hope for University Bible Fellowship.
Title: The mystery of the beautiful exterior of UBF
The purpose of this article is to show how there are wonderful things taught and done by the real lay-missionaries in UBF composing it’s beautiful and wonderful (but less than perfect) outside.
Gnosticism and sneaky wording

There is a difference between a claim being true and stating that if someone does not believe a claim is true upon the moment of death they will go to Hell after they die. Below is a list of claims that are not equivalent to one another however people often confuse the types of claims. I give many examples below. There are also different definitions of the word believe. Changing around the definition of the word believe can be used to make people afraid of going to Hell for accessing the wrong information and changing what claims they believe. Consider the adjectives, verbs, prepositions, articles and any other qualifying words and phrases next to the word believe when you read verses in the Bible also consider the tense the word believe is conjugated into and the fact that the Bible is translated from another language if and when you read it in English so as not to fall for these kinds of traps.
Why courtship is fundamentally flawed
Image accessed on 2018 February 9 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dates_on_date_palm.jpg
There was much talk of courtship being ok but dating being bad at my Chapter shortly before I leftI. Ironically someone was rebuked for finding a girlfriend even though they told me courting was ok. They were into I kissed dating goodbye, by Joshua Harris and said Billy Graham courted his wife. Here is a good article about what is wrong with courtship by someone else. And another two articles about the author of the book repenting that is having a change of mind.
Recovering from UBF personal application hermeneutics
Title: Discipleship Methods within UBF
Purpose of this article: To show the difference between the principles I was taught in the outer layer of UBF which were in many (but not all) ways good except for a lack of objectivity and what I later learned from Samuel lee loyalists in the inner layer of UBF which suppressed the authentic discipleship style I was taught earlier within the same organization! I also wish to make suggestions for how to increase objectivity in Bible study, which might help improve the discipleship process in an area that was lacking.
Disclaimer: It is a problematic oversimplification to put UBF members into two camps but it saves much writing space just keep in mind that people are more complicated than I explain they might behave like Samuel Lee loyalists in one situation but not in another and might be only partly loyal to Samuel Lee rather than completely loyal.

What is wrong with UBF private revelation about marriage
20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things.21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

I put up a old article I wrote years ago (but never before published) on what is wrong with using private revelation to determine a marriage partner and yet simultaneously claiming to use the Bible as a guide on my blog, the link is below. It is very thorough and a worthwhile read for using the Bible to contradict the marriage by faith doctrine.
