PART 1 Operation #exposeUBF

null“Dear UBF, I am your worst nightmare”


Born in Chicago, and Son to Korean missionaries, I lived within the UBF system from birth to high school graduation.  I’ve had a taste of the Large UBF church through my time at the TOLEDO UBF as well as was the 5 small house churches my parents created throughout the US.

While growing up, every day was dedicated the UBF: bible study, testimony writing, orchestra practice, daily bread, sunday services, VBS, conferences, play practice, etc.  Like many have stated before, I have had horrible experiences with the UBF.  The clear hypocrisies and criminal negligence shown was disgusting (I will detail everything through my later parts).


Although I could easily move on with my life I realized I would be doing a disservice to all the children that are still stuck in this disgusting system.  Thus, I am hear to send a message and warning to the UBF, although unlike others in the past, I have no intentions to help you, pray for you, or to come to some kind of biblical euphoric message that we can all “learn and grow from”.  I am here to Expose you to the masses like no one has EVER done before.  This operation will not happen overnight.  This will take a few years realistically, but it will be done.  You will be the our generations Catholic church and Scientology.

Many people may call the UBF a cult, but really you guys are just a business.  And just like any business, you don’t care unless you HAVE to care AKA you don’t care unless it hurts your financial “bottom line.”   The ubf is built upon the foundation of the old school Korean male ego.  Unfortunately for you, that in itself is why you guys will ultimately be exposed and there is nothing you can do to cover your tracks.

In the past you have been successful at avoiding attempts like me through threatening legal action, intimidating loved ones etc.  But ubf, I no longer am a kid – I am a 31 year old well educated man, own a lucrative business, have powerful lawyers, no current family relationships, have famous friends with Millions of social media followers, and absolutely no filter.  Everything you have thought I have already thought of.  Everything you will try to threaten me with I have already prepped with my lawyers.  I could care less what you respond or do, you keep playing checkers while I play chess.  UBF, I am your boogeyman – I AM YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE.

It is not coincidence that SAMUEL LEE, your disgusted & criminal Beloved Leader you still celebrate, burned to death in a fire, it is KARMA that he received for all of the horrible things he did.

Just like the well known “Anonymous” Group says :



To all those reading this I want to let you know that finally it’s time to receive some closure.  To those that were hurt by the UBF, I will be your ambassador and voice to heal your broken hearts and bring back justice.  I recommend all those to create profiles on here and contribute to the community while I continue my efforts on Operation #exposeUBF.

If you question whether you should help or what you can do I dare you to read this famous Speech…

“To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. …..

Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!”

      insincerity has caused great damage, sincerity must be sought at all costs

  2. Amen.

    If anyone has not seen that speech you reference, Paul, here it is, and it is highly relevant to the UBF system, a religious machine that needs to be done away with:

  3. Thank You for posting the video Brian, it is so inspiring. Here is where I love its application.

    • I long for the day when we hear the report of some messenger walking up to the podium at the 2016 summer bible conference, leaving his script behind and giving this speech or something similar; sharing his honest thoughts and laying it on the line. How much longer can ubf messengers be parrots reading from a script?

    • Well said Brian

  4. Sorry I don’t know how to embed it

  5. Thanksss

  6. Thank you for your post Paul Lee I look forward to hearing from you and I hope that through your message and personal experience many UBF cult leaders can — in the end do the right thing (for once) even if it’s hard.

  7. Praise God!!

    One of the best and truest lines ever to appear on this website:

    “The ubf is built upon the foundation of the old school Korean male ego.”

  9. Thanks again for your efforts Paul. The new push from ubfers is to create membership classes. They are pretending to be a normal Christian ministry…

    Here they claim “full disclosure”, and yet only show the same old superficial statements. If anyone wants full disclosure, read my books.

    ubf is now making membership forms, classes and applications

    The students should ask, what am I really signing up for?

    This is full disclosure for anyone signing away their life on one of those forms:

    Arranged marriages exclusively with group members
    Replacement of identity with the Shepherd X identity
    Lifelong moral supervision by a personal shepherd
    Degradation of family as unspiritual
    Koreanization of host cultures
    Failure to adequately address various cases of abuse
    Hagiographical re-writing of their own history
    Traumatic process of leaving the group
    Psychological issues found in former members
    Theological departures from the tenets of Christianity
    Reduction of the Bible canon to 12 books
    Toxic leadership styles that foster hypocrisy

    They want to break you.

  10. “Many people may call the UBF a cult, but really you guys are just a business. And just like any business, you don’t care unless you HAVE to care AKA you don’t care unless it hurts your financial “bottom line.” – See more at:

    This is a good point, Paul. Underneath the Bible layer and all the holy paint, ubf could simply be considered a business. That is certainly what many of them care about–forming a business.

    This website and my books have made them start to care. As a result, many ubf chapters are quickly painting their ministry with holy paint.

    But no matter how pretty the pot is painted, planting the same seeds will grow the same weeds. Even if you paint the seeds of hypocrisy with brilliant colors, the seeds still grow into the same toxic environment that smothers young adults.

  11. This business nature of UBFism takes on several forms, which I address in my book.

    “The culture of UBFism is held together by giving a new purpose to your relationships with other people. That purpose is of course to honor the UBF leaders and pass on the UBF spiritual heritage. Your relationship with your spouse is made into a business-like co-working relationship. Your relationship with your own children is made into a machine-like bond.” (pg. 70)

    “Some UBF missionaries are working for their own self-supporting businesses. The claim by UBF leaders is that they are just imitating Paul the Apostle who made tents for a living. They like to call themselves tent-making missionaries. This may be a fine missionaries paradigm for most, but some missionaries get caught up in this business side of their mission. Some call this business mission. The idea is to evangelize students with this self-supporting business they created, such as a tutoring company or a computer company. But sometimes this side business becomes too much and all Christian evangelization efforts become secondary to keeping the business going. In Mexico, for example, four missionaries from Korea UBF setup a clothing factory. They got into trouble in 2015 with the Mexican authorities for many serious allegations ranging from safety violations to abuse (as reported by many news outlets including International Business Times, February 6, 2015)” (pg 142)
