>The Toledo director does it again! Another Jesusless

It is strange to walk into a nominally Christian church on Sunday and not hear the name of Jesus mentioned or even alluded to in a sermon. But then the UBF
statement of purpose goes something like this:

The University Bible Fellowship is an international evangelical student organization with emphasis on world mission ... to teach students the Bible and to help them live according to its teachings.

No mention of Jesus there.

Then you go to a site like the University of Chicago "Bible Club" homepage which just recently added a UBF affiliation statement after a few years without one, and instead of even a passing mention of Jesus, you get something like, "Because you can only gain from knowing more about the Bible."

You get the impression that UBF doesn't know what kind of church or organization it wants to be. Instead of taking the name of Jesus with them wherever they go, they take the name of UBF, and their "world mission" seems to be about self-propagation, rather than propogating Jesus' name.
