Here is a passage from a Chicago UBF message on Mark 6:30-44, Key Verse: 6:37a. It has 5 times the word "obedience," 3 times "absolute obedience."

"It is important for each of us to experience the power of God through absolute obedience. Those who do not experience the power of God through absolute obedience remain as old wineskin Christians or like one of the Pharisees. Without experiencing the power of God through absolute obedience, anyone becomes powerless, even to attend Sunday worship service. He is even more powerless to study for his final. He remains as a permanent student in a junior college. We have seen so many young and handsome and dynamic students. They look so gorgeous. But we find that so many of them have remained in junior college for five to seven years; still they are freshmen. These days, the word "obedience" is taboo to many young people. But without obedience to the word of God, we cannot experience the power of God nor can we be normal human beings who can maintain our families properly. We have seen so many couples. Both husband and wife are godless and they are always nagging love from each other. Finally, they break up. These days we are very sorry that there are so many divorces. But all the divorces are the work of demons."

Do the last two sentences speak about Chicago UBF, by the way (Nick, can you give us the number of divorces in Chicago UBF, again)?

In Matthew Henry's commentary on that section, I do not find the words "absolute obedience," I do not even find the word "obedience."
