What Canada UBF did after the Winnipeg UBF scandal

Winnipeg UBF was the epi-centre and breeding ground for mind control, harrassment and at least one incident of rape. It is well documents. Winnipeg UBF was banned from all Winnipeg campuses. Then, the leaders from Winnipeg moved to Quebec and Ontario where they were not well known for cult activity, so they could fly under the radar for a while. Today Winnipeg UBf vetrans control Canada UBF. Check it out:
Luke Hong (Montreal UBF) – Winnipeg veteran
Joshua Lee (Toronto UBF) – Winnipeg Veteran
Workhard Yoon (Waterloo UBF) – Winnipeg Veteran
Paul Chang (Hamilton UBF) – Winnipeg Veteran. The abuse continues. To understand the commitment to the same program look at “montreal.ubf.org” prayer topics and see that they earnestly pray to maintain the Samuel Lee legacy of “manger spirit, 5 loaves and 2 fish, giving spirit, soldier-martyrdom spirit, world mission through 1:1 bible studies, layman and student oriented ministry” Source: http://www.voy.com/60734/1/8919.html All if not most of the UBF “…

Winnipeg Free Press Winnipeg, Manitoba Sun, Oct 6, 1985 Cult fears raised A Korean-based group whose activities are being monitored by U.S. cult-watchers has been recruiting in Winnipeg for more than two years, a former member says.

Winnipeg cult branch denies pressure tactics

Brandon Sun Brandon, Manitoba Sat, Oct 12, 1985 – Page 14 Winnipeg cult branch denies pressure tactics WINNIPEG (CP) A Korean-based group whose activities are being monitored by U.S. cult-watchers has made Winnipeg its sole Canadian operation, and its presence has some residents worried. Bruce Alexander, a former member of the University Bible Fellowship, said the group uses high pressure recruiting tactics, can alienate members from their families and uses forms of thought control during prayer meetings at a central Winnipeg house. Alexander, 20. said he was a member of the group for about five months, beginning in July. 1984. “They kind of pulled me in off the street. he said. They like to pressure you. They try to keep you out of your parents’ influence. They say: ‘I’m your mother now. listen to me they try to run your life. But Sarah Barry, co-founder of the group, said it would be unfair to criticize the two-year-old missionary project because of one person’s complaints. Barry, i…

UBF Harassment

Winnipeg Free Press Winnipeg, Manitoba Sun, Nov 17, 1985 – Page 6 UBF harassment I have read with interest the article and letters about the so-called University Bible Fellowship (UBF) since I have had experience with that group. A woman in her late twenties, calling herself Joy Sara Lee (her real name is Chung Soon Tai) phoned our house more than 100 times in little more than three months, and attempted to gain access to our house more than a dozen times. On one occasion, when the back door was left unlocked, 1 found her lurking in the darkened kitchen. Our family asked her to leave us alone. I finally lost my temper and told her never to phone or call again and that we would call the police if she did not stop harassing us. The result was she got a young man to ring the doorbell while she hid behind a tree. She also had the young man make the phone calls for her. Finally, when the police told her we had complained about her actions, the harassment stopped. But not until then. At lea…

Missionaries Viewed [As] Vexing

The article below was published in the University of Winnipeg’s “The Uniter” in 1986, showing widespread student disenchantment with the harassment of the UBF cult members on campus. The majority of student opinion actually favored disbarment which is what happened. The result might be a case study (or a model) in the effectiveness of direct confrontation of the UBF cult. Still, however, UBF did not repent but continued to harass students at the University of Manitoba and elsewhere.

In God’s name: New Korean cult seeks converts on Winnipeg’s campuses

In God’s name: New Korean cult seeks converts on Winnipeg’s campuses The Winnipeg Free Press/October 25, 1986
By Catherine Bainbridge Keith’s friends say they never see him any more. Keith is a 22-year-old chemical technology graduate. He used to love martial arts, music, his record collection and books. But in the space of 4 months, he’s given all that up. Keith is losing his family, money, personality and probably his self-control to the University Bible Fellowship, cult experts say. The UBF which came to Canada three years ago from Korea and has 20 chapters in the United States and a dozen countries around the world, is flourishing in Winnipeg. It calls itself a Christian Bible study group, dedicated to the task of campus evangelism, in a pamphlet published by the group. But according to Dr. Ronald Enroth of California, a world renowned sociologist who has had six books published on North American cults, UBF is part of a new wave of authoritarian mind control groups quickly replaci…
