My chapter director ('God's servant') told me that I should always discuss any problems or disagreements I had with him. I took him at his word. Consistently, he would respond positively at first. But, the next week, he would tell me that I was not a good coworker, not in the UBF boat, or going a different way than the other members of UBF. He never said "You must absolutely obey me." He just rebuked me every time I did not absolutely obeyed him.

UBF leaders rarely, if ever actually tell you what they really expect. Mostly, they play mind games, utilize praise and rebukes during group prayer and testimony sharingg, or falsely accuse you in vague terms of committing some sin, such as pride or selfishness.

I experienced this woe when I did not understand that the UBF director wants absolute obedience. He tried to train me twice. When I still refused to absolutely obey him, he said that I was not ready for training. Thus, if I had remained in UBF, I would sooner or later be trained again.

In Christ,
