Canada UBF (Winnipeg UBF)– Uncovering multiple layers of dirt

THE MANITOBAN –VOL LXXVIII October 17, 1990 p.7 More on the UBF I would like to address Randall Brandt’s response to Reage’s articles (Oct 10th/letters). Mr. Brandt insists that we should “vigorously defend the rights of those whom we disagree.” I am 100% in favor of that attitude. We should support their rights to present, in a reasonable fashion, their beliefs. The UBF has been banned from campus not for their beliefs, as Brandt hastily assumes, but for their methods of persuasion and coercion, which have been deemed excessive. I believe that anyone should have the right to believe that racial minorities are inferior. But for him to push his beliefs on children during recess? No. Brandt himself says that the UBF are not dangerous to people of normal discretion and intelligence. But groups that use harassment and persistent pressure to recruit don’t always ask their recruits if they have normal discretion and intelligence before beginning their persuasion. Not everyone has had the ex…

Cult on Campus Part Two

Cult Recruits on Campus Part Two: Breaking Away
By Kim Van Bruggen The Projector: Student’s Journal Date: October 10, 1989
In the first part of this two part
series, Cult on Campus, the
University Bible Fellowship was
attempting to recruit new members
from RRCC.
Once approached by a “missionary”
of the University Bible
Fellowship (UBF) the chances of
ending up at their “church” in
Fort Garry are very good.
That is where Theresa wound
up spending almost three years of
her life. “There was a- groupof us that
all started around the same time,
so they trained us as a group. It
became like a military boot camp
for us,” Theresa said.
The punishment for wrongdoing
was different for males than
for females. “If they (the men) disobeyed
them, or had an attitude problem,
or just did something that wasn’t
right—in full suit they would
make them run a one and a half
mile route around the U of W ten
times.” For the women, the punishment
was more emotional in nature.
When Theresa was first recruited
by t…

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 “…

“Cult fears raised” and “Brainwashing,’ ex-adherent calls flock’s methods”

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…
