>The Toledo director does it again! Another Jesusless

The Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Moonies, even Muslims, mention Jesus in their sermons. UBF defense and "UBF critics exposed!" web sites have phrases like "May Jesus be gloried" or "May all glory go to Jesus". Jesus is on everybody's lips.

What matters is how UBF understands Jesus, represents Jesus and interprets and carries out his commands, and on those counts UBF is incomplete or unbalanced at best, cultic and dangerous at worst. From claiming that Jesus "didn't mind violating the Samaritan woman's rights" to the emphasis on works over grace for salvation, UBF gets Jesus and his gospel all wrong, IMHO.

And it's clear from all of our UBF experiences that Jesus and his gospel are not the true pillars of UBF. Nor are the written statement of Christian faith (hastily copied from others) or bylaws the true pillars of UBF. The true pillars of UBF are "spiritual order", obedience to human leaders, tithing to the "Central", etc.
